Tag Team Diseases
I have bad news and well, more bad news! It seems that some of out modern ailments such as Diabetes, Pneumonia and even Celiac Disease are just out there alone making peoples lives a misery.
Oh no! It appears that they are learning how to team up with other diseases to go for the double whammy.
I never thought that they were that organized! Here are some common diseases and conditions that like to travel in tandem.
Not only are these waffles vegan and totally healthy but they taste delicious as well, what could possibly go wrong?
Whilst I am in no danger of adopting a fully vegan diet one thing I have noticed is that many vegan recipes, because they don’t use common ingredients taste awesome because their creators need to try that little bit harder to make the sale!
Homemade Laundry Detergent
Like most things in life these days you can’t help but wonder what’s in the bottle and even if you know you are then left with the nagging doubt that whatever is in there may not be so good for you or your family.
One such product that comes under this label would be laundry detergent.
Of course you are going to be prepared for the fact that it is full of some pretty heavy duty stuff but just how safe is it?
The manufacturers say it all OK so we can trust them right?
Hmmm… so if you feel a little doubtful about the whole thing try this!
It’s a well proven home made laundry detergent that has been around for quite a while.
It is made up of ingredients you can get a hold of easily and has been tested by real people in HE (High Efficiency) washers with good results.

OK, maybe this story is not quite what it seems but lends some credence to the old idea that there is money in shit!
Cooking to Survive College
Heading off to college or maybe sending kids off to college soon?
Either way take a look at the article below and the connected blog for some great ideas for students on how to get at least some nutritional food into themselves when faced with being away from home.
I often wonder why colleges don’t run mandatory nutrition and cooking classes in the first year of college as an introduction into the world of life outside the family home.
I think it would be safe to say that the majority of students living away from home for the first time have never really had any kind of education into cooking for themselves and what they should or should not be eating.
Gotta Admire Their Persistence!
“[WASHINGTON, DC] – U.S. Senator Richard Durbin (D-IL) and U.S. Congresswoman Rosa DeLauro (D-CT) today introduced the Safe Food Act of 2015,, which would create a single, independent food safety agency. Currently food safety oversight is split up among 15 different agencies, resulting in a patchwork where no single voice guides industry, retailers and consumers. Durbin and DeLauro introduced similar legislation in 1999, 2004, 2005 and 2007.”
No Surprises Here!
Researchers have recently found that girls who drank on average one-and-a-half cans of sugar-laden soda or iced tea per day experienced the onset of their first period 2.7 months earlier than those who only drank two or less cans per week.
While I am not one of those that really wants to get on the “all sugar is poison” bandwagon I think it is pretty clear that excessive sugar intake is not such a great thing.
Given that the main topic of this site is acne I know only too well about the terrible effect sugar has on the body through the hormone systems.
The One Healthy Thing
Of all the foods available to me on a daily basis there is one group that I know I should participate in yet boy, I really don’t like it.
That food group is greens.
On the other hand I do eat them and the benefits go on and on.
Herbal Remedies for Your Kitchen
Here is a list of ten wonderful herbs that can be used for their healing properties on an everyday basis.
Any number of common ailments can be literally nipped in the bud (pun intended) by judicious use of these natural wonders.
Really, it is time for everyone to get a grip and more importantly get a grip on the science instead of the hysteria.
I find it amazing that when most people are asked why they believe global warming is factual they quote the science.
Yet you ask people about their objections to immunization and they do a complete about face and reject the science!
Intense scrutiny of immunization over the past 20 or so years has revealed that there is almost nothing preventing the average parent from getting their children immunized.
In fact the gains far outweigh any scientifically verified risks. Everything else is just rubbish and needs to be exposed as such.
Get a Grip on Your Finances
If there is anything in modern life that contributes more to ill health than stress I’d really like to know what it is.
And if there one source of stress that is common to just about all of us it is that of money.
The problem here is that most of us were never really educated as to what money truly is and how to handle it effectively.
