Personally, I get somewhat grossed out by things being made in factories. I like to have as much control over what we eat.. however, there are just some thing (more than I care to admit) that we have to purchase. So then making smart well informed choice is the best option.
Since publishing “Why I don’t use toothpaste“, I am asked which toothpastes / toothpaste alternatives I reccomend – as not everyone is able to find the Oliva soap that I use. I am going to review a few products which I have used.
Happy 2013 readers! I hope that you all had a great 2012 where you learned how to care better for your body and the environment. I have been very busy this year in my free time learning about all these little things that interest me. Me and Google are best friends
I was wanting to do a “Top 10 Things I Learned in 2012″ post, but I think it just needs to be a top few. I have been abit slower with the blogging now, as I am busy working full time now – unlike when I started with this journey I hope that you all had a wonderful and insightful 2012, now lets make 2013 a year we learn even more about making ourselves and the world healthier! Below are the top things – the things that stand out the most in my head – that I have learned this year, plus some tips and a few goals for the year.
Today I watched Genetic Roulette.. these are my thoughts on the documentary:
I hear a lot that I am “over the top” and such. I hear things like these 3 statements and I have even heard them all from the same person(s) before:
“No one used to be so concerned over food, just eat what is at the store, stop worrying. The government is watching out and testing things”
“Back 30 years ago there were no food allergies, I think people are just oversensitive or something”
“People never used to be sick this much, but I just think it must be that we did not have names for all these things people have now or the science didn’t pick up on them. People died, they did not die from XYZ”
