The soft drink industry wears many hats. On one occasion it resembles such offenders as Big Tobacco by its funding of so called independent research groups dedicated to twisting the truth. All this to discredit clinical authoritative findings that links their sugary, and junk food products to serious health risks.
Their phony front-groups disguised as authority, disingenuously support legitimate health groups and organizations while pretending to be concerned and involved in safe food and drink products. In reality, they’re products are promoting serious health risks associated with premature degenerative diseases, and death.
Soda, a widely consumed beverage of America’s children, is linked to aggressive, violent, abnormal behavior, and including mood swings. Adults are also exposed to serious health risks including diabetes, cancer, obesity, etc. Sugar is guilty of promoting an acidic-body-chemistry that increasingly encourages pathogenic aggression. Cancer and other diseases thrive in an acidic, sugary body-chemistry-environment.
Our nations schools have been rewarded by manufacturers of processed and junk-food products, along with their sugary counterparts with kick-backs and other perks to school districts that promote these poison-food and drink products to our naive and unsuspecting children.
Parents are encouraged to educate their children on the dangers of poor food choices, and to teach by example by introducing your children, and yourselves to better and healthy choices such as organic, and or locally grown foods from trusted farms in your area. You can encourage life-long consciousness of good food and eating habits in those you love, and greatly increase their chances for a long and disease free life.
Almost 1 billion pounds of pesticides are used just on fields and orchards in the United States — each year. These chemicals not only coat edible products, but also drift into nearby communities. Remember to soak, then thoroughly rinse your non-organic produce before serving. A effective non-toxic wash solution is available at http://www.environne.com and, http://www.tryfit.com
A home made wash-solution… Use a Hydrogen peroxide solution to clean non-organic vegetables. Add 2 teaspoons to 1 gallon of water. Soak leafy vegetables for 5-10 minutes, fruits and heavier veggies for 10 -15 minutes before using or storing. Peel non-organic fruits and vegetables, such as apples and cucumbers and discard the peel.
Peel and discard outer layers of non-organic leafy vegetables, such as lettuce and cabbage.
Editor’s note: While pesticide free food is an obvious win-win path to better health, clean and pure water (chlorine and fluoride free) is just as important since up to 60% of the human body is water, the brain is composed of 70% water. Your health and longevity is within your choices.

Be Cautious of the Hidden Dangers of “Eco-Friendly” fabric Grocery Bags.
The alternative to plastic has become reusable cloth/fabric grocery bags. However, they are prone to harbor breeding grounds for infectious food-borne bacteria and therefore pose a serious public health risk at best.
The report, developed in a joint study conducted between researchers at
the University of Arizona and Loma Linda University detected harmful coliform bacteria, and E. coli, in half of food shoppers’ bags in a random test.
Obvious reasoning suggests that you never put raw meat and produce in fabric shopping bags. Also, moisture from frozen food items produces condensation that encourages the growth and transfer of mold and other microbial organisms. If you’re using fabric bags, it’s strongly advised that you wash them periodically in hot water with bleach to eliminate hazardous bio-growth.
Several west coast cities have now banned the use of these sanitary plastic grocery bags, claiming that they are not eco-friendly to the environment, and may no longer be a option to grocery shoppers in these areas. Cities already
enforcing the ban include, Seattle, San Francisco, and Portland. Also, this trend may soon become a statewide ban of plastic shopping bags in the great state of California. We seem to eliminate one unhealthy habit only to embrace another with possible more serious consequences.
All this in the name of a healthier environment. Isn’t it comforting to know that our law-makers are well educated on this subject, and well ahead of the curve. Maybe forced inoculations are next on their environmental do-good agenda?
