Herbs:  Basil, oregano, and thyme all have over 80 mg of calcium per tablespoon, so make good on recipes that include these tasty spices.

McYuck Fast Food is Packed With Preservatives

Fichoo / 9GAG

This kind of makes you think twice about eating fast food packed with preservatives. Basically the saying goes - The longer the shelf-life the worse it is for you. Obviously some natural foods can keep for long periods of time like coconuts - But things like candy and the above picture of fast food along with so many other "treats" need to be preserved so they can be shipped and sat on shelves for longer periods thus increasing profit. This is NOT about health. It's about profit. That's all. The share holders on wallstreet need to make more and more each year or the company is deemed a failure. Profits before people. And that must change.

Prevention is the best cure.

Basil Beats Bacteria!

All Hail Basil, the Royal Herb!

Did you know that Basil, the delicious herb known for its use in spaghetti sauce, pesto, and salad dressings actually has a long history and a variety of healing properties. 

 No way?  Yes way!

The word "basil" is derived from the Greek word Basilikohn which means "royal," alluding to the fact that it was held in high regard in ancient times.  Basil was first cultivated in Asia and Africa and is known to be used in several different types of cultural cuisine.  But, here is the real cool part...  It boosts cardiovascular health, is an anti-inflammatory, fights bacteria, and even protects your DNA from environmental damage and radiation.  A study published in the Journal of Microbiology Methods concluded that essential oils from Basil inhibits multiple strains of antibiotic resistant strains of bacteria!

Basil is also an excellent source of daily nutrients.  Packed with vitamin k, this super herb is also a good source of iron, calcium, and vitamin k.

     Have tons of basil growing in your garden?  Just pesto the rest-o!

Make a dairy-free pesto: 

  • Chopped basil, 
  • garlic, 
  • olive oil 

Store what you don't use in the freezer
 for an amazing topping later on!

Aspartame Kills

Monsanto's Aspartame & Phenylalanine Business is now owned by Listerine.

A warning: Do not ingest ASPARTAME! -

 Nutrasweet - Equal - Creatine - Canderel - And many others...

Just like fluoridated water - aspartame is literally a poison in almost ALL of our food. Aspartame causes seizures - brain tumors - multiple sclerosis (ms) and Grave's disease. In 1970 scientists fed milk with aspartame to 7 monkeys to study the effects. The final results: starting after 218 days - 5 monkeys had grand mal seizures and 1 died. IT'S IN ALMOST ALL OF OUR FOOD! 


HISTORY OF ASPARTAME - Check out the history...

The deadly artificial sweetener Nutrasweet is produced by feeding fossil fuel oil to ecoli that are genetically modified to DEFECATE aspartame as feces. Not so sweet after all is it?

Some video evidence:

Wheatgrass Juice A Great Natural Cure
Dr. Leonard Smith - Cancer surgeon in Gainesville - Florida - allowed wheatgrass juice to be given to his patient Gary Garrett because he desperately needed a blood transfusion - but could not because of  being a Jehovah Witness religion. Smith said: "Gary's platelet count rose every day for 7 days from 61000 to 141000 and the only thing they did differently was administer wheatgrass. That's phenomenal and its fully documented on the hospital record." - Smith now juices wheatgrass himself. - 

Just 2 Ounces of Wheatgrass = 4 pounds of green vegetables.
