New Content added to "Bless the Beasts & Children" page and below...

Happy Sunday!

I certainly hope that you are enJOYing a lovely day...  We  have a sunny high in mid-50's here in Denver with crazy wind and snow in the mountains - just perfect and for that, we are grateful...  I'm looking forward to a long walk, soaking in the fresh air, sights and sounds and hopefully bringing our Broncos to victory over the Chiefs!  ;-)

With this new blog, I've been building content to the pages.  Today, I've added some text, article and video clip links to the "Bless the Beasts...." page that I hope you will find informative.

Also, I'd like to share a couple of links from two great research resources I've found -- Ms. Robyn O'Brien and Mike Adams...

This link will share Ms. O'Brien's personal experience that led her to investigate more into the allegans and toxic contaminants found in everyday foods.  This brilliant, former food industry analyst, mother of four does a remarkable job of presenting many of the concerns over the current state of our food supply that echoes my own. 

Mike Adams is another go-to mentor in my search for answers and more questions to try to get to the bottom of what's going on with our food supply.  For many years, there's been a lot of hype and misunderstandings surround high fructose corn syrup.   Just the other day, I saw a TV commercial sponsored by the Corn Refiners Association (always good to check sources!) that says, "your body doesn't know the difference between high fructose corn syrup and cane sugar" -- wow... 

In addition to the many other factors that Mr. Adams will expertly cover in the following clip, corn syrup comes from CORN and if it's not ORGANIC, it is highly likely to have come from genetically modified (GM) corn which means it was grown from seeds infused with Round-Up resistant chemicals.    A good tip when out shopping is to look at the ingredients and if they are not organic, stick with cane sugar.  If it just says, "sugar", it likely is from beet sugar that is also likely contaminated.  Like Mr. Adams says, if you are eating a healthy diet of micro-nutrient rich foods and don't make a habit of consuming liquid sugars like in sodas, getting a little bit now and then is not going to hurt you at all.  But so many Americans consume highly processed foods, fast foods and soft drinks and just get a lot of high fructose corn syrup.   I hope you will find this video clip insightful, as I did --

Please know that I am not holding myself as expert here - just one who is trying to understand what's in her food to make informed choices and sharing some material I'm coming across in the hopes that it will be helpful to you and your family as well...

I've a long way to go to even follow my own advice, but babystepping closer all the time and feeling better for it.   There's a lot of information on-line, in books, PBS presentations, documentaries, etc. - and the good news is, we've all the tools we need to help ourselves to better health and vitality.

Cheers and smiles,
