In the food world, the color green is synonymous with healthy. We even say, “be sure to eat your greens”. And for good reason… the green color of many vegetables is due to the presence of carotenoids (which are strong antioxidants). Most green vegetables also contain chlorophyll (which helps fight off cancer and increases liver and detox functions in the body). Which is essential right! However, many vegetables that lack the green color tend to be considered less nutritional. One such vegetable is cauliflower.
McDonalds is the worlds largest fast food chain of restaurants. The company’s net worth in 2014, was $4.76 billion! McDonalds was started in San Bernardino, California as a bar-b-que restaurant in 1940, by Richard and Maurice McDonald. In 1948, McDonalds was reorganized as a burger restaurant with an assembly line type production.
The marketing decision to start offering “selections of balanced choices” became available in 2010, when McDonald’s began selling cereal.

I would hardly call McDonald’s Fruit and Maple Oatmeal balanced or even nutritious.

Most commercially available soaps are made with sulfates. Sulfates are a group of detergents or surfactants that are used in most personal care products today. Sulfates themselves are classified as a skin and membrane irritant. They can also become a a possible carcinogen with repeated exposure and can create even more toxic by-products by the other ingredients they are usually blended with. Additionally, most soaps contain an industrial detergent like SLS. The sodium lauryl sulfate found in your soap is exactly the same as the one used to degrease car engines.
People have long known that a positive mindset can keep us healthy. When we live our lives with optimism and hope, we do have a better and longer life. We don’t need science to confirm that.
A positive attitude has all kinds of physiological and healing benefits !
Our bodies are fighting off environmental toxins and stressors daily. It’s is important we give our bodies the weapons (anti-oxidants) to protect our bodies from cell damage and diminishing health as a result of this damage.
It seems like most of us fall asleep with our cell phones next to the pillow. This can lead to a very real danger of fire. Unfortunately, when you place your phone under the pillow, the heat generated by the charger can’t escape in all of those covers thus leading to a fire.
