A third non-browning, genetically modified apple has been approved by the USDA. Select your apples carefully this season.
We know this. Of course, we know this. We feel it!
Our brains, especially when multitasking or dodging distractions, are prone to mistakes. What is the antidote to modern, stressful life for our minds, scientists say? Nature.
This is one seriously committed mom! You go, girl!
Interesting post. And the last line had me rolling on the floor. I think pretty much every parent can relate to that.
Parents, no judgment here, but if you are feeding junk in brown bag lunches, switch to healthier options. A piece or two of fruit, a salad, some protein. We can do this. Really we can.
Sugary lunches probably aren't any better than a school lunch.
This shouldn't be allowed. We took this research as science and it was bought and sold to an unsuspecting public whose health suffered because we were all looking the wrong way.
In the '60s, the sugar industry funded research that downplayed risks of sugar and highlighted the hazards of fat.
Great move, FDA....about fifteen years late. How much damage was done to our children while they sat on their hands?
The Food and Drug Administration has banned the sale of soaps containing certain antibacterial chemicals, saying industry had failed to prove they were safe to use over the long term or more effective than using ordinary soap and water:
Beautiful philosophy. Parenting is hard. But maybe we can make it easier on ourselves and our children.

One of the favorite poems out of my book THE AWAKENED FAMILY - reminds us all that challenges are al...ways an opportunity to allow a blessing to flourish.
Frustrated parents and caregivers can transform their lives, by experiencing challenging children in a new light.
Here is the a full poem in text:
May you be blessed with a child… Who defies you So you may learn to release control
With one who doesn't listen - So you may learn to tune in
With one who loves to procrastinate - So you learn the beauty of stillness
With one who forgets things - So you learn to let go of attachments
With one who is extra sensitive - So you learn to be grounded
With one who is inattentive - So you learn to be focused
With one who dares to rebel - So you learn to think outside the box
With one who feels afraid - So you learn to trust the universe
May you be blessed with a child…
Who teaches you - That it's never about them - And all about you..
Petroleum is added in the form of food colorings, and consequently, is quietly looming throughout America’s favorite products like sports drinks, candies and ca...kes. Unlike other countries, like Great Britain, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration continues to approve petroleum-based products in spite of the overwhelming, widely available research confirming its negative side effects, including allergies, diabetes, and cancer. Its most dangerous, and regrettably, popular variations are yellow dye #5 and red dye #40. Yellow dye #5 and red dye #40 are both documented carcinogens and known allergens. Kellogg's Pop Tarts, marketed to children, is one of the worst offenders and is filled with pesticide-laced GMOs, TBHQ (Tertiary-butyl hydroquinone), a petroleum-based product, and red dye #40. Not healthy at all - avoid at all costs.
Yes! Love it!
Advocates say school gardens in urban areas, like this one we wrote about last year, are "outdoor classrooms where kids learn valuable lessons."
What do you think?
This could be a pretty dramatic change for many kids.
This garden is in the middle of the city, but it produces enough food to feed an entire family and makes $20,000 in profit, too! Meet the masters of urban backyard gardening and find out why growing your own organic food is way easier than the food industry wants you to think.
