gmo dangers

While more and more people are awakening to the catastrophic long-term dangers of processed foods, fast foods and GMO’s, I’m still admittedly slightly astounded that there are people who disregard the long-term dangers of ingesting these so-called “foods”. Just because something doesn’t kill or inju you immediately, doesn’t mean it is okay to consume or use, which is most likely why people don’t associate a good portion of their health problems with their unhealthy diet. Our bodies are NOT designed to consume chemicals and lab-made ingredients. Try as one may, and as many a commercial food manufacture has, it is NOT okay to eat in moderation because slowly but surely the negative effects will ring their bell, resulting in health, mind and emotional disturbances in the body.

(article by naturalcuresnotmedicine.com)

There’s a killer lurking in your kitchen….
At least, there is if you cook with non stick Teflon cookware. Teflon cookware, when heated to high temperature (when cooking, for example) can release fumes that are harmful to humans and lethal to pet birds.

Every year, hundreds of pet birds, however, keel over and are rushed to the vet. The cause of death is the same in every case – Teflon toxicity.
