A Good Explanation of the DARK Act

obama-signs-dark-actIt is important to understand how the organic label is being diluted. It is also imperative to understand the implications of the DARK Act that was just signed into law by President Obama.

The most harmful thing is this bill preempts any state labeling laws and reverses the Vermont GMO labeling law that was in effect for a matter of days before being reversed.

Living MaxWell is a great blog by Max Goldberg. He explains what this bill means to consumers. Please read and share.

Are Statins Bad for You?

You betcha. Statins are the most over-prescribed medication in the United States. MIT scientist, Dr. Raymond Francis says that statin users increase their risk of type 2 diabetes, kidney disease, cancer, muscle weakness, liver disease memory loss, and HEART FAILURE.

I am not a doctor. Please do not stop taking your statin without consulting your physician. You should however, do more research on a healthy plant-based diet. I recommend Dr. Esselstyn’s Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease book and website.

California wines contain poison. According to Moms Across America, 100% of the wine they tested were positive for Glyphosate, the active ingredient in Monsanto’s Round-up weed killer; even the organic wine.

For this reason I recently switched to mostly French and Italian wines. The French wines take some getting used to but are completely worth changing your palate. I’ll take less drinkable over toxins any day.
