List Of Potentially Dangerous Chemicals

December 23, 2010

NO, your kidding me.

You mean there are dangerous chemicals.

I love the photo of how much we are exposed to daily.

Please don’t switch to those new money-saving (CFL) light bulbs they are filled with mercury and need to be recycled not thrown away like the incandescent bulbs.

Just my 2 cents.

Peace

Industrial Food Sickness

September 1, 2010

OMGoodness I am SO glad I found this post. I didn’t know there was a name for it, but this is “exactly” what happens when our family eats at restaurants. Papa refuses to eat out anywhere now because he will be sick for days.

This post is a great read. http://thehealthyhomeeconomist.blogspot.com/2010/08/deconstructing-industrial-food-sickness.html?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+TheHealthyHomeEconomist+%28The+Healthy+Home+Economist%29

“But AquaBounty says FDA cannot legally obligate the fish producer to label the product as anything other than Atlantic salmon. Anything else is voluntary.”  Great !

Does this mean the price of salmon will go down?

Ok ,personally I think it is scary that China feels the chemical used to make McDonald’s chicken nuggets is to toxic for them but the US does not. WHAT?

Thoughts To Ponder (IMMHO)

May 13, 2010

I have been told I think too much. Hey what can you expect , it just kinda happens when you become unplugged. So what has been on my mind lately(and do you really care to know)? I was reading a blog post from my most favorite cookbook author (and no I am  unfortunately not on her payroll).http://www.cookusinterruptus.com/blog/?p=1327  When those wheels in my brain started to turn. When we first brought our dog Harvey into our family it was only fair that he should receive the same quality of food that our family eats. At his first vet appointment I explained to them that we are a very holistic family and were interested in finding out what foods would be best to feed him for us to make our own dog food? I wish I could input a picture of the vets face but I didn’t happen to have my camera that day. She told me that was not possible and recommended the top 3 selling dogs foods which of course were being advertised all over their office. You can only guess how excited I am to find out that indeed I am not crazy(some may still argue that *wink wink*) .That even though pets have been around for thousands of years (didn’t Egyptians have cats?) and with Purina only starting in 1894 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Purina they have somehow managed to survive this long.

 Needless to say I can’t wait to read this book and can finally feel confident that our new member of the family is now going to get the same treatment as the rest of us.

So what other thoughts are going through my mind? Why do we still get cavities with all the fluoride treatments out on the market, and why are the majority(I know not all because we are one) of  low-income families facing obesity?

From my brain to yours Peace.
