First Did You Know for the Year

  1. Bruce Springsteen said he  is afraid of the Trump Presidency,  he also said when President Reagan was elected that he was very afraid. I guess he is a very afraid Democrat. (He has got nothing to be afraid of.)

2. A rigorously done new study shows that those with the highest sugar intake had a four-fold increase in their risk of heart attacks compared to those with the lowest intakes. That’s 400 percent! Just one 20-ounce soda increases your risk of a heart attack by about 30 percent.

 

3. If you see this label

a.  A four-digit code beginning with a 3 or a 4 means the produce is probably conventionally grown. The last digits of the code represent the kind of the fruit or vegetable you are buying. For example, bananas are always labeled with the code of 4011.

b.  If there are five numbers, and the first is “8″, then the product is genetically modified. The label on genetically modified banana (GE-genetically engineered of GMO) would contain the numbers 84011.

c.  A five-digit number that starts with a 9 means the item is organic. Organic bananas are labeled with 94011.

EWG ( The Environmental Working Group) analyzed pesticide residue testing data from the U.S. Department of Agriculture and Food and Drug Administration to come up with rankings for these popular fresh produce items.
The Environmental Protection Agency warns that the consumption of pesticides can lead to health problems such as “birth defects, nerve damage, cancer, and other effects that might occur over a long period of time.” Children are especially at risk of harm from pesticides.

Poem Friday – From 100 To Zero

From 100 To Zero

Author: Lesley Voth

Well here I am ‘ Back in the USA’
Sounds like a Springsteen Song I have to say

I left Australia just last week, very warm and sunny
If my friends could see me now they would think it rather funny

I had a tan that I worked very hard to get
Only to be wrapped up in winter woollies, body not seen the sun yet

Woke up yesterday to icicles on the trees
No sign of spring flowers that are usually covered in bees

But I am grateful as the house is nice and warm
Cold outside, at least now sunny no sign of a storm

I believe, I am told that spring is near, that’s Mother Natures plan
Summer around the corner, will be back at the pool, working hard on that tan

As you can see from the pictures, my Son and Grandson
Loving the warmth, the ocean in Australia and having such fun

I am not really complaining as I love this country and I am with my husband, my hero
Even though I have gone from temperatures of 100 degrees to Zero
