Make the decision: “When someone makes a decision, he is really diving into a strong current that will carry him to places he has never dreamed of when he first made the decision.” It’s easy to get overwhelmed by the unknowns and finer details of your dreams. Actions will flow out of having confidence in your decision; sitting on the fence will get you nowhere. Paulo Coelho


A new report released by The Environmental Working Group (EWG) confirms previous reports that America’s breakfast cereals, consumed primarily by children, are contaminated with the toxic herbicide, glyphosate. Glyphosate is the active ingredient in Monsanto’s RoundUp, and has been linked to cancer. Juries in recent court cases have awarded billions of dollars in damages to cancer victims who were exposed to glyphosate. Alexis Temkin, Ph.D., Toxicologist, at EWG, tested 21 oat-based cereal and snack products, and found all of them had high levels of the toxin glyphosate. The two highest levels of glyphosate were found in Honey Nut Cheerios and Medley Crunch. RoundUp, which was originally formulated to be sprayed on genetically modified crops to kill weeds, but not the GMO crops like corn and soy, is also used to “desiccate” (quickly dry out) non-GMO crops, such as oats and wheat. Glyphosate is the #1 herbicide in the world, and even if one is not applying it directly to their crops, it is finding its way through “drift” from neighbors’ farms, through rain, groundwater, etc. The only way to ban glyphosate is to replace it with something else that would allow the current agricultural system to continue, but the question is will it be safer?


In a Journal of the American Medical Association study, women who racked up at least 200 cardio minutes a week for 18 months lost nearly 14% of their total body weight. Those who accumulated fewer than 150 minutes reduced their weight by less than 5%.


“If I start getting adjusted, will I need to keep being adjusted for the rest of my life?” I’m not sure about you, but when I had my first haircut, they never told me that in order to keep my hair looking neat and well-kept, I would have to keep returning for haircuts for the rest of my life! If you started to exercise today, for how many years would you need to continue exercising in order to maintain a good level of fitness? If you started to eat healthy today, for how many years would you need to continue to eat well in order to maintain a healthy figure and healthy digestive system? Is it necessary to keep brushing and flossing your teeth for as long as you live? No! Unless you want to keep your teeth! So, truly, the answer to this question must come from each individual’s decision on whether or not they feel it is an important part of their healthy lifestyle. That decision is ultimately up to you.


Dark, leafy green lettuce (the darker, the better!) teems with vitamins and nutrients. It is a good source of vitamins A, C, E and K, which fortifies bones and blunts inflammatory diseases. It is also rich in calcium, iron, magnesium and potassium and “contains an abundance of carotenoids-antioxidants that protect cells and play roles in blocking the early stages of cancer,” according to the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture.


Success is the ability to go from failure to failure without losing your enthusiasm. ~Sir Winston Churchill
