Baby Formula…and so it Begins…Thanks, Nestle’

The use of a wet nurse was a common practice before the introduction of the feeding bottle and baby formula.  In fact, by the early 1800s wet nursing had become a well-organized profession with contracts and laws designed to regulate its practice.  Although today we may frown upon the idea of someone breastfeeding a child…

I See Dead People…

“I see dead people”…this famous line from the 1999 movie The Sixth Sense reminds me of this quote from Benjamin Franklin: “Many people die at 25 and aren’t buried until they are 75” If you look closely at the people around you, you’ll be able to relate to both of these quotes.  Our young people…

“Honey, I Poisoned the Kids”

Yes, I’ve poisoned the kids.  Not deliberately, of course.  In fact, being “the World’s Best Mom” was my primary goal in life.  But the fact remains that I failed to protect them and I blindly exposed them to a toxic world. I fed them plenty of “fresh” vegetables shipped from all over the world laced with invisible…

Proof That Humans Will Drink Absolutely Anything…Kopi Luwak

Kopi Luwak is the world’s most expensive coffee selling for as much as $30.00 per cup in some parts of the world.  If that’s not enough to make you choke maybe the fact that it is made from the beans of coffee berries that have been excreted by cat-like (rat-like) animals called civets is!  The civet…

Withholding Fluids From Young Children…Child Abuse or School Compliance?

The Ultimate Price for Bathroom Use Kids Have to “Pay” to Use the Bathroom in School? I’ve always thought that eliminating waste was a human necessity and not an earned privilege; but it looks like schools across America have a different idea.  Texas – A second-grade teacher charges good-behavior “bucks” for bathroom visits.  Consequently a…

America…Fat, Dumb & Happy! How does it feel to be scammed…again?

I don’t know who coined the phrase “fat, dumb and happy” but it sure seems fitting to describe the American mentality when it comes to bottled water. In spite of so much opposition about bottled water; the business is booming.  Bottled water is the biggest seller in any grocery store and it occupies more square footage…

A Word From the Peanut Gallery…It’s Not That Simple

  As far as I’m concerned, food allergies can be officially added to the list of epidemic conditions in America.  When I was a child I didn’t know one single person with an allergy to peanuts.  We probably would all have starved to death without ample access to peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.  Peanut butter…

Are You Content to be Clueless?

I see it often.   I start talking about the benefits of Kangen Water and the eyes start to glaze over.  The refusal to consider that drinking the PERFECT water could make a profound difference in the body is a clear indicator that people don’t understand the complexity OR the miracle of the human body….
