Toxic apples?

Thursday, May 01, 2014

I eat apples very rarely because of the high sugar levels but at least make sure they are always organic.
Here is another reason:

    My baseline glucose is high and the spike from food wasn't that great of which an apple is included with every meal. I think if I add more fat, that will lessen the spike more so I don't see the apple as an enemy, at least for myself.

    Our government just does not care if it causes cancer and other problems they just want the money and a way to kill us off. They keep letting the EPA keep toxins in and on our foods but stop foods that have been around for centuries and not harmful from getting to us. Soon they will stop us from growing our own food and make the big farms that are bad for you because there is no nutrients in them be our only source of food. They just want to control the people.

    As I understand this, DPA addresses browning of the skin (not the flesh). So is it sufficient to discard the peel? (Yes, I understand that it would be far preferable to buy apples without DPA!)

This could prevent GMO labeling forever - please spread the word

Monday, April 28, 2014

Regardless how exactly we feel about GMO's right now, if this bill passes we won't be able to change our minds later.

    Thanks for posting this, Birgit.

While it's ultimately everyone's own choice as to whether they want to eat GMO food or not, EVERYONE should at least be able to KNOW that they're making that choice.

    I lived in the Middle East and traveled in the East for nearly 6 months back in the late 70's. The sense that we have and seem to need too much has never left me.

    I had one of these FWP's today. Too many groceries!! I tried to carry 6 bags each, but with 4 dozen eggs, and 30 cans of veggies, we had to take ( gulp ) 2 trips.. the horror!

Now I'll shut the full cup.

Thanks for the laugh.
