Sorry, sorry, sorry for not posting more regularly....no! no, apologies....life is life...we get busy so we do what we can. But, I am sorry. I've come across sooooooooo much it's almost mind-blowing regarding the laws, Mansanto is entrenched in our current administration, and things are changing faster than you could sear a steak!!
Please, everyone try and get a copy of the New Food Safety Law and study it! I think we should be able to get a free copy from the US government web site. If it costs anything to get a copy, it's well worth it. I'm going to try and get me a copy soon! We need to know what we are up against to be able to become REAL FOOD advocates. Also, we need to do as much investigation as we can to be able to educate our family and friends as to how Mansanto is QUICKLY changing what the food industry is really about, how that affects our immediate health and access to food and what we can do about it.
In the meantime, here is a great link that can help you navigate through the FRANKENFOOD INDUSTRY. Remember, it's not just about "organic" any more. That term itself can be VERY misleading. Learn what is happening to our foods. Even if you have stepped up your diligence to make truly good food choices, others need to be educated. It's the whole world food chain that is under attack by the greedy. Europe has kicked Mansanto OUT!! It's time we did the same!
For the VERY brave:
Alot of people are totally unaware of the controversy regarding raw milk vs. pasturized milk. Raw milk is illegal, just like cocaine, marijuana, and so on. So, why? Is it true that pasturized milk is the better, best and the only acceptable way to drink milk. Many people think not and it's very important for you to do your own research and find out why this controversy exists. Some people believe that pasturization destroys the nutritional integrity of milk and we, in fact, need the nutrients that are being destroyed for optimal health. I've included a very interesting article about some mothers who took action regarding the issue of raw milk being illegal.
I found another one so I can't resist passing it on so that I can do my part to educate others as to the controversies regarding GMO's.
I was soooooooooo excited to see the post I've linked to for you to review. Please, if you have ANY concerns at all about GMO's or Mansanto or preserving your right to naturally reproducing seed that is nonhybrid, please copy and paste this link everywhere you possibly can and make a committment to follow this case closely, notifying every representative you can of this action!
We all LOVE good food and it's that love that usually causes us to seek out everything 'food'. We love to look at the pictures, we're enthralled with the foodie programs and one of our greatest trophies is to say we ate with some pretigious chef or at in an exclusive restaurant. We're movitvated to spend that little extra to buy the best, when we can. Writing this post, I'm hoping to really bring attention to the 'other side' of good eating, our bodies need us to seek out and ingest key foods so that our body can run as efficiently as possible and do it's job to keep us healthy and functioning at our best. I try to read over articles regarding health maintenance and it seems that two subjects keep coming up in a variety of illnesses and health issues, "inflamation" and "immunity". I encourage you to do a little web surfing and see for yourself how important it is to tend to these two items regarding your own health and see how you might incorporate some healthy personal choices to raise your own level of health.
I've included a link that focuses on boosting your immunity through specific foods and some simple 'tricks' you can do that will boost your immunity so that your immunity can do a better job keeping you well, especially through the cold and flu season.
When Roland and I met, I was one of those people who opened the box or can and warmed up the family meal. After our marriage in 2005, I truely began to appreciate what food is really about, not only that it can taste very good, and be nutritious, but that it can be a celebration of who you are and the people that you share it with.
