GMOs are deadly—here’s what you need to know

GMOs are deadly—here’s what you need to know

  Although they’ve been around for nearly three decades, many people are still in the dark (much to the delight of food and chemical manufacturers) about GMOs--genetically modified organisms—or as they are more recently called, GE--genetically engineered—foods.  For those of you still scratching your heads on what they are, GMO foods are living organisms that have had their genes artificially manipulated in a lab.  Scientists splice bits of DNA from one organism into another in...

The biggest (and most preventable) cause of disease

I don’t care what time of day it is—every time I drive by McDonalds, Wendy’s or Burger King, there is a sea of cars waiting in line for their paper-wrapped offerings.

The #1 reason we’re sick, fat and dying younger

The #1 reason we’re sick, fat and dying younger

  According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the US currently spends about $3.5 trillion every year on healthcare—that’s about two and one half times more per capita than any other developed nation. You’d think that would translate into 330 million healthy citizens, but you would be wrong.  Americans are getting sicker and fatter by the day, and rank an alarming 49th in the world for life expectancy! There are many factors...
