WeedKiller in our Breakfast Cereals?

I knew that Tomato plants are poisoned at the end of their  growing life so as to ripen the tomatoes quickly for the markets. I was never sure what with and always tried to either grow my own or just not eat them. Now I realize there are a lot more crops getting the same treatment.

Environmental Working Group (EWG) just released its second round of 2018 test results measuring glyphosate, the active ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup weed killer, in popular oat-based cereals and foods.

The nonprofit organization released the new results after two companies, Quaker and General Mills, told the public it has no reason to worry about traces of glyphosate in its products.

Not True

Why is there glyphosate in our food? According to the U.S. Geological Survey, 250 million pounds of glyphosate are sprayed on American crops each year. Glyphosate is primarily used on Roundup Ready corn and soybeans that are genetically modified to withstand the herbicide.

Glyphosate is a systemic herbicide, meaning it’s taken up inside of the plant, including the parts livestock and humans wind up eating.

Glyphosate is sprayed on other non-GMO crops, like wheat, oats, barley and beans, right before harvest. Farmers sometimes call this “burning down” the crops and do this to kill the food plants and dry them out so that they can be harvested sooner.

Interesting

28 products tested, those with the highest levels of glyphosate include: (1)

  • Quaker Oatmeal Squares, Honey Nut (2,837 ppb)
  • Quaker Oatmeal Squares, Brown Sugar (2,746 ppb)
  • Quaker Overnight Oats, Unsweetened with Chia Seeds (1,799 ppb)
  • Cheerios, Oat Crunch Cinnamon (1,171 ppb)
  • Quaker Overnight Oats, Raisin Walnut & Honey Heaven (1,029 ppb)
  • Quaker Breakfast Squares Soft Baked Bars, Peanut Butter (1,014 ppb)
  • Quaker Breakfast Flats Crispy Snack Bars, Cranberry Almond (894 ppb)
  • Apple Cinnamon Cheerios (868 ppb)
  • Honey Nut Cheerios (833 ppb)
  • Chocolate Cheerios (826)

Now I love my porridge but I think I need to have second thoughts about where  I buy this porridge and what label I buy.

I mean what can you do  as it seems there is generally lots of not so good stuff  being being sprayed on our food, especially our kids food. For me what the heck,  I have come this far eating porridge its not so bad for me but the kids have a lifetime to be concerned. Bio Dynamic food is an option and any other organic grown produce for me in the future. Maybe some of these companies need to overhaul the harvesting techniques to prevent this happening. I will cost us more for the product though but for health of the children I think it would be a good thing.

To Vaccinate or Not To Vaccinate It Is Up To You

 

I for one personally am wary of all vaccinations. Reason being one can never be sure what you are being injected with. Thats just me and I am entitled to that opinion. I recently had a shingles vaccination after being shown by the doctor a graphic picture of s shingles infection on the face and body. No ill affects. A friend of mine had the same injection. Not  a good result. He ended up with inflammation that basically froze his shoulder and eventually his muscles  atrophied. He is in his late 60’s and will probably never regain the same use of that arm and shoulder. If I had known this before I had the vaccination I doubt if I would have taken the risk. Thats just me though. Like him I am very physical in my lifestyle so, no I would definitely not have had the vaccination. What is happening to him is scary to me.

You need to listen to what Barbara Loe Fisher, co-founder and president of the National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC) has to say especially if you are deciding wether or not to vaccinate your children. It may help in your decision.

What Are We Thinking Australia? Your Freedoms are Threatened

Interesting Australia and New Zealand.  I do not approve of violence or prejudice in any way for those who want to live and enjoy the pleasures of our respective countries. For those who don’t live and respect our culture or speak it,  should not be here it is an insult to who we are and those who fought for for those who died for our freedoms.

Most of the population of both our countries will not be aware of what is going on behind our backs so that is why you need to watch this video. The future of your children of this country is in jeapody. 

Everyone needs to listen to the video to realize what we will be up against in the future of our countries. BE AWARE!

This of course is my opinion and my right to free speech.

Yogurt and Sugar

 

This is a subject that I think most people are aware of but “sweet” wins. 

The stomach health loves pure unadulterated yogurt. Collect all of those natural bugs that our body needs to digest and absorb our food and keep our digestive  mechanism running efficiently.

Look I am a label reader, have been for years. I always read the ‘ ingredients ‘  on the outside of the packaging (no ingredient label I don’t buy). I don’t look at the calorie or food break down as there will always be a ‘sugar’ content number as there is natural sugars in most foods. Always read the content of the ‘Ingredients’. With almost 95% of the yogurt especially the flavored ones or ones with a fruit mix (which you can be sure will have sugar added) they will have sugar, corn syrup, fructose or some other sweetener in it. Try to stay clear of this. The sugars actually are harmful to the natural bacteria’s that are in yogurt so you won’t be getting the full benefit of eating yogurt.

The reason they put sweetness in the yogurt is it makes it more palatable especially to children and they sell more of the product as  “Healthy”. In most cases you may as well have desert.

What I do with natural unsweetened yogurt is I might add passionfruit from our vines or at this time of the year fresh Mango’s, strawberries. Basically I add any fruit that is in season “Fresh” .

If you are used to eating flavored yogurt, try weaning yourself on to the natural unsweetened ones. Its like breaking the habit of having sugar in your tea or coffee. Once you break the habit you find your tea or coffee undrinkable containing your teaspoon or more of sugar.

If you have a weight problem well then that is a good reason to look on the shelves for the natural product. I actually make my own yogurt as I have a yogurt maker. This way it is much more economical and I believe tastier.

If you are buying yogurt this is what you look for

“If you don’t do different nothing will change”

Put Those Damn Phones Away When You are With Children.

This was an example of how easy it is to kidnap a child while in your care. Put those phones away and connect and play with your kids.

There is an explosion of Human Trafficking in this world and this is how easy it is to happen.

Put those phones away. We are responsible for our children who incidentally grow up too fast so enjoy and interact with them at all times when you are with them. It is Paramount.

PUT THOSE PHONES AWAY

 

This video next shows how easy for teenagers to be picked up. Scary. Teach your kids to check with you before entering someones vehicle. Always.

Remember Human Trafficking is rampant.
