The food industry, like tobacco companies and other drug lords, has come up with products that tap into the same dopamine reward system that keeps people smoking cigarettes, using marijuana, and eating candy bars. Are Sugary Foods Addictive?.

Recent research highlighted in the video, Are Fatty Foods Addictive? suggests that fat may have similar effects on the brain.

When people are fed yogurt packed with butterfat, within 30 minutes they exhibit the same brain activity as those who drink sugar water.

People who regularly eat ice cream (sugar and fat) have a deadened dopamine response in response to drinking a milkshake. It’s similar to drug abusers who have to use more and more to get the same high. …read more of How Fatty Foods May Affect Your Love Life here

Drinking soymilk is the quick and easy way to get the goodness of soy into your body by replacing unhealthy cow’s milk in coffee, cereal, smoothies and protein drinks!

Why Soymilk?

Humans have taken up the dubious habit of drinking the milk of another species. Cow’s milk is an excellent source of nutrition for calves and will multiply its weight 8 times over in 9 months. Unlike humans, once calves or any other mammalian species are weaned they never drink milk again.

Cow’s milk contains on average three times the protein of human milk and creates metabolic disturbances in humans that have detrimental bone health consequences.

Most cow’s milk has measurable quantities of herbicides, pesticides, up to 200 times the safe levels dioxins and as many as 52 powerful antibiotics, in addition to the blood, pus, feces, bacteria and viruses. It is a slow poison. …read more of Make Fresh Delicious Soymilk for Pennies in Just 20 Minutes! here

Ironically, every Thanksgiving, 46 million turkeys are consumed by Americans on a day that was established to celebrate the harvest.

Turkeys are the ‘centerpiece’ of the meal even though there is overwhelming evidence that people who consume a plant-based diet are far healthier than those who eat animal products.

Turkeys can be quite intelligent and as loyal as dogs. Timmy, the turkey who died of old age earlier this year is still mourned by the employees of the sanctuary in Woodstock, NY and the guests he followed around, waited for and fussed over.

Turkeys and dogs, pigs and cats, lambs and parrots, cows, rabbits, chickens, ducks and goats are all sentient. They are aware of their surroundings and want to live.

Even though turkeys can live up to twelve years, turkeys bred for food consumption have a short, painful life of not more than six months.  …read more of Thanksliving ~ For the Turkeys here

Since the inception of “Breast Cancer Awareness Month,” the message has been about reminding women 40 years of age and older to get mammograms.

Research shows that lifestyle choices made during the pre-teen and teen years are the most influential to your overall health as an adult.
