Which is healthier red or white meat?

Americans are among the largest consumers of meat on earth and many other countries are following our example as meat consumers. Over the years red meat has gotten a bad rap for causing cholesterol and heart problems and so we are told to eat white meat.

Countless scientific studies have concluded that eating red meat is bad for you. But in each of those studies, the researchers routinely fail to differentiate between processed or commercially grown meat vs. free-range grass fed organic beef.  They focus on the commercial, processed meat that has been grown and processed with tons of antibiotics, steroids, food additives, flavorings, meat glue, etc. omitting the free-range beef and lamb grown and finished on grass that is free of all the commercial processing and short-cuts. In doing so, they cast a dark shadow of doubt over all red meat, when the reality is that red meat is one of the healthiest meats with the highest nutrition in comparison to white meat.

Why You Should Detox Your Body

With the cooler weather comes the urge to get out the fall/winter clothes. It is also common to cleanse your body when the weather changes. Many people do a detoxification of their body in the spring and then again in the fall. This keeps the body young, vibrant, healthy, and strong.

Regular liver and gall bladder cleanses eliminate the build up of stones and old bile that can cause stones. Many people who do regular cleansing report that they do not get sick as often as they did before cleansing. Though toxins are generally eliminated from your body through your liver, over a period of many years, small accumulations can build up into problems causing headaches, tiredness, lack of energy, and inflammation in the organs.

How Do Antibiotics Destroy Your Immune System?

Your immune system is on the lookout for foreign invaders 24-7. This includes germs, cell defects, and mutant cells. The immune system has the ability to remember harmful invaders and how to destroy them. Your immune cells are the hardest working and fastest growing cells in the body. Much of the work is done in the intestinal tract. “Over 80 percent of the body’s immunity is built in the intestinal tract by the friendly bacteria balance that resides there.” (natural news) When we are born, the body begins to populate our gut flora and immune system starts an inventory of good and bad cells. The body continues to process and manage this inventory throughout life.

Spraying The Skies

Do you ever wonder what those persistent white streams in our skies from unmarked airplanes are?

The first major political leader has come forward to publicly explain what is being sprayed in our skies. Pernilla Hagberg of the Swedish Green Party said recently “Normal contrails, which are composed of mere water vapor that quickly dissipates after emission from jet engines, are far different from chemtrails, which gradually blanket the entire sky in a sea of white.” According to Hagberg, the spraying is a joint endeavor by the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) and the U.S. National Security Agency (NSA), as well as the Swedish government in her own country, to modify atmospheric conditions via deliberate aerosol spraying efforts. And included in this “dangerous” mix of aerosols are various chemical components, viruses and viral fragments, and metals such as aluminum and barium, all of which have been shown to be accumulating in water supplies and soils around the world.

The Food Fight

There has been a lot of controversy about GMO (genetically modified organism) food in the media lately. As scientists find more evidence of the GMO health risks, we find ourselves faced with a choice. Do we demand that our food be labeled GMO or do we continue to take the risk of eating food that could be potentially hazardous to our health?

Is Wax On Produce Safe?

Wax was first applied to the skins of fruits and vegetables for longer shelf life hundreds of years ago.  Today, that tradition has drastically changed with a new generation of chemicals and compounds.

When you buy non-organic produce from the grocery store, you are getting additional chemical coatings.  The FDA admits that these edible coatings have been associated with a number of problems, ” [Produce coatings]  can result in tissue destruction and the production of substances that contribute to off-flavors and off-odors, as well as the potential for growth of foodborne pathogens such as Clostridium botulinum.”
