If you googled ... "Food Related Illness" you would be shocked... and a 14 year old burger.

I know.... I know..... but it taste good!!!  Well, how does sick taste...?

Emotions, bone health, energy are all related to what we eat...  The longer I am away from my favorite Cheese Danish, the less desirable it looks to me...in fact, now when I look at that yummy morning coffee partner, the Cheese Danish, all I see is a sugar serge and fat added to my body.  The many diet cokes I use to drink, I taste it now and all I taste is Chemicals...and they have a lot of them...as well as leaching calcium from your bones and depleting your immune system..if you have one at all.

Sugar plays such havoc on your energy and emotions... When my
daughter was a teenager, I remember I could see sugar in her eyes...her pupils would be dilated looking like she had done drugs...well she had for her..it was sugar! Often she looked wasted but all it was was too much sugar...For her, it is not a good thing.

I hear it said, it is too expensive to eat healthy....  REALLY?  My answer to that is.... NO IT IS NOT!  You just have to know what to eat and learn how to prepare them..  I would love to help with healthy cooking and suggestions...

And God Forbid....If you drive thru fast food for the convenience, then be prepared to stay up with you sick child...being there is few to no nourishment in fast food.  I will give you a little assignment... Go to the famous McD. and buy a hamburger, leave it out for 2-3 months...pay attention, you will not see any mold, change in color or even size, it will be hard but it will look the same as the day you bought it.  If that doesn't scare you, I am not sure what will.

Check out the below story.....  
A man apparently was going to keep the burger around for one month, then forgot about it…until he pulled it out of his pocket 14 years later. 

OMG EW WHY DON’T YOU CHECK YOUR POCKETS.
 Buyer be ware... and please be smart... 
It might taste good today, but it will not tomorrow.
 Below is a search I did ...  "Food Related Illness"
 To better quantify the impact of foodborne diseases on health in the United States, we compiled and analyzed information from multiple surveillance systems and other sources. We estimate that foodborne diseases cause approximately 76 million illnesses, 325,000 hospitalizations, and 5,000 deaths in the United States each year. Known pathogens account for an estimated 14 million illnesses, 60,000 hospitalizations, and 1,800 deaths. Three pathogens, Salmonella, Listeria, and Toxoplasma, are responsible for 1,500 deaths each year, more than 75% of those caused by known pathogens, while unknown agents account for the remaining 62 million illnesses, 265,000 hospitalizations, and 3,200 deaths. Overall, foodborne diseases appear to cause more illnesses but fewer deaths than previously estimated.

So my friends, as a Cancer survivor of more than 36 years, a Wellness Advocate and Body Wise Independent consultant... I am so very serious and passionate about your health and mine..   I am 60 years old without any medication except my Thyroid hormone which is a replacement for having not Thyroid... No Meds!!! and I intend to keep it that way...you can too.
But wait!!!!
What about our children that have a 1 in 3 chance of getting diabetes before they are an adult...or should we discuss childhood obesity  or maybe how often our children are home sick...

WE CAN STOP THIS!!!
The time is NOW to be proactive... learn, live and thrive...not merely survive.

Blessings and Great Health!!!
