URGENT! Educate Yourself on How to Avoid Genetically Modified Foods or Risk Sterility, Infertility, Cancer, Accelerated Aging etc.

My obsession for chips and salsa/guacamole has come to a halt. Why? Because of my new obsession with the horrors of genetically modified (GM) foods. The corn in tortilla chips is one of the major GM foods. The more I read, the more terrified I became. Especially when I thought about my child spending playdates in other kids homes – with parents or nannies who are not educated on GM dangers. We need to educate ourselves and our friends – FAST! GM foods cause everything from sterility and infertility to allergies and cancers.  Wake-up in restaurants – talk about no regulation.

I have included two articles below. One explains the health problems brought on with GM foods and the other from www.foodbabe.com which gets more specific about food labeling and how companies that use GM foods try to trick customers by cunning labeling strategies.

Health Risks

In 2009, the American Academy of Environmental Medicine (AAEM) stated that, “Several animal studies indicate serious health risks associated with genetically modified (GM) food,” including infertility, immune problems, accelerated aging, faulty insulin regulation, and changes in major organs and the gastrointestinal system. The AAEM has asked physicians to advise all patients to avoid GM foods.

Starting in 1996, Americans have been eating genetically modified (GM) ingredients in most processed foods. Why isn’t the FDA protecting us?

Yoga Positions that Help You Stay Younger by Triggering the Release of Good Hormones and Alleviating the Release of Bad Hormones

To be a luscious goddess or an ageless vampire you must also be a yogi. Now, I am not saying you have to do it full time or spend a lot of money on classes. What I am saying, is that learning about the yoga practice and choosing to do a number of simple positions at home on a regular basis can have MAGICAL anti-aging results. Have you ever seen a dedicated yogi that did not exude a youthful aura – in body and spirit? One benefit of yoga vs a gym is that you can do it anywhere as it requires no equipment. If you don’t know the positions get a dvd until you do. Personally, I aim to do my exercise routine – which is half yoga – 5 days a week for one hour. I make the time by either getting up earlier or going to bed later. But I make it happen – and the results are there. Continue reading

Four Foods that Age You

Due to biochemical reactions in your body that occur with every type of food you eat on a daily basis, some foods age you faster, while other foods fight aging.
Eat the wrong foods regularly, and you can look and feel 10 or more years older than your real age …
Three of the processes that go on inside your body that have a major impact on your rate of aging are called “glycation”, “inflammation”, and “oxidation”. When we talk about aging, we’re not just talking about wrinkles on your skin or how thick your hair is… we’re also talking about processes that you can’t see, such as how well your organs function, metabolic reactions and your endocrine system.

Sunscreens – are they Aging You?

I was hunting for a sunscreen for my twenty month old baby the other day and was overwhelmed by the endless options.  I started scribbling down the ingredients to google later and was astounded by the level of toxins in creams approved for children – who are usually more protected by the FDA.

7 Reasons Why Eating Throughout the Day Will Age You

Forget the convenient myth that grazing on small snacks throughout the day is healthier.  It’s not.  In fact, the classic three meals a day with a gap of six to seven hours in between is the ideal anti-aging regime.

The six to seven hour gap is a kind of fasting period for the body.  During this time many magical anti-aging benefits occur: Continue reading
