Still Counting Calories & Carbs?
We love to measure things. We hope by counting Nutrition Facts we can know how GOOD a food is for us. But how effective is it? What about the vast nutritional gap between the three realms of food: Organic vs. "Conventional" vs. GMO? What's the effect of chemicals on complete nutrition? Obviously, this will vary depending on the type of seed, minerals and microbes in the soil, growing conditions, and freshness of the food. Ha Ha! Did you know that calorie and carb counts are based on average ...

Best SEARCH ENGINES for Independent Thinkers
We live in a world on fire with differing opinions. What do you look for in a search engine? If you're intent on seeing all sides of an issue to make up your own mind, you'd better be VERY selective.

How Healthy is Your Breakfast Cereal?
A healthy breakfast means a bowl of cereal. Right? After all isn't this an American tradition? Nope. It’s actually a very recent marketing invention.

Kellogg was said to treat his guests with many bizarre experiments for health improvement. One of his invention was a whole grain corn breakfast cereal served ...

What Favorite Foods Convert to SUGAR in Your Blood?

What Are Autumn Medicinal Foods?
It's amazing! 4,500 years ago, the oldest book on medicine suggests we "Heal the body before illness can come." A truly cutting-edge, breakthrough idea! The Yellow Emperor Huangdi (2717 -2599 BCE) said:
“In the old days, smart people prevented disease before it began, just as a good leader averts war before it starts. If someone digs a well only when thirsty, or forges weapons during battle, one might ask: Aren’t these actions far too late to be effective?”

Are You Taking Your Mineral Drops?
People with diabetes often have a deficiency of chromium and zinc. Low magnesium has been linked to myocardial ischemia and cancer. Microbiome imbalance is everywhere inside us and around us.
