11 Reasons to Stop Drinking Milk


True or False? Drinking lots of milk helps prevent osteoporosis.
FALSE! Studies show that countries who drink lots of milk have more osteoporosis than countries that don't drink milk.
So-- is milk good for you? Not really. The dairy industry introduced milk years ago and since most people like the taste of it, incorporated it into the human diet as a necessary nutrient.
Here is a great article with 11 reasons why you shouldn't drink milk. So, if you and your family consume a lot of dairy products you may want to start reducing your intake on dairy so you can have a healthier future.
The first 3 reasons why Dairy is bad for you are:

1. Cow’s milk is intended for baby cows.  We’re the only species (other than those we are domesticating) that drinks milk after infancy.  And, we’re definitely the only ones drinking the milk of a different species.
2.  Hormones. Not only are the naturally-present hormones in cow’s milk stronger than human hormones, the animals are routinely given steroids and other hormones to plump them up and increase milk production.  These hormones can negatively impact humans’ delicate hormonal balance.
3.  Most cows are fed inappropriate food.  Commercial feed for cows contains all sorts of ingredients that include:  genetically-modified (GM) corn, GM soy, animal products, chicken manure, cottonseed, pesticides, and antibiotics.

How to Clean your Fruits & Veggies


Recent studies are suggesting that the chemicals left on our fruits and veggies may be causing Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD or ADHD) in our children.  How can you be sure you are getting all the pesticides, herbicides and other chemicals off your foods before you feed them to your family?

I made a little video that shows how I wash my produce.  The timing on the sound is a bit off so I look a bit weirder than usual...ha!  But you will get the idea.

Kangen Water has Record Sales in 2010

Approximately 4,000 Kangen Water machines are shipped monthly in the United States. The Enagic equipment has been perfected over decades of research by Japanese scientists. Using the highest-quality components, the machines purify water and ionize it, creating healthy Kangen Water for drinking. The water retains healthy minerals such as calcium while filtering out contaminants, and the alkaline structure makes it rich in antioxidants. Enagic machines are recognized by the Japanese government as medical devices, and used in Japanese hospitals to promote health. Enagic ionizers are also widely used in households around the world, with strong growth in the United States. In addition to drinking water, Enagic ionizers also create other specialized types of water, including acidic water for cleaning that can help eliminate the use of cleaning chemicals. As consumer interest in protecting both the environment and personal health grows, so have sales of Kangen Water.

The company's Q1 results expanded at an unheard of rate as households across the country learn of the benefits of Kangen Water, the tremendous potential of the firm's compensation plan, and the peace of mind afforded with the security of the company. Throughout the difficult economic times, Enagic has continued to thrive. After 36 years as the leading manufacturer of healthy ionizers, Enagic predicts strong interest in Kangen Water will grow throughout 2010 and into the coming decade.

This amazing water, produced with a state-of-the-art filtration machine manufactured by Enagic, a leader in the water purification industry. For over 30 years, this company has been conducting ground-breaking research in water with the power to create an alkaline body and positioning itself as an authority on the subject of water quality and its power to improve our daily lives.
