Roundup or Real Maple Syrup?

Every fall in the north maple trees are tapped for their sap and then it is cooked to reduce the water content and increase the sweetness. Too bad almost all “maple” syrups on the market today are made from GMO corn. Just in case, you needed a little more Roundup in your diet, they are almost entirely corn syrup and high fructose corn syrup. Their focus is on margins and not wellness, fair enough.

Aunt Jemima, Mrs. Butterworth’s, Hungry Jack, and almost all store brands, are full of corn and mostly artificial colors and flavors. There is nothing close to maple syrup in them though that is how it started out over 120 years ago. I will point out that Log Cabin has now ousted the High Fructose Corn Syrup for likely GMO sugar. Note that Pinnacle Foods owns Log Cabin as well as Aunt Jemima and Hungry Man.

Lots of folks avoid real maple syrup due to increased costs, and many of the smaller bottles of it are many times more than the stuff mentioned above. The great news is that places like Costco carry offerings such as Kirkland’s organic grade A maple syrup in a one liter jug that is considerably less than at any other store.

Also, in addition to its amazing flavor, organic maple syrup delivers a high amount of manganese per serving as well as Calcium, Iron, Magnesium, Potassium, Zinc, and Copper. A natural and very sustainable sweetener, organic maple syrups flavor is amazing and whether atop breakfast items or in your favorite recipe the flavor and richness are sure to please.

One of the most educational experiences I have had in some time is learning to market a book. After I became clear how almost all disease was an option and not our genetic fate I began writing Nutritional Truths. Time and again I hear folks talk about older relatives and disease as if genetics is why they are sick. Of course this is most often not true at all.

Almost always it is a result of repeated behaviors that supports and will often replicate illness. From food, beverages, thoughts, and behaviors to one’s perception of the world is either adding to one’s wellness or illness. As Dr. Wigmore used to say ” The food you eat can either be the safest and most powerful form of medicine or the slowest form of poison.”

All ten chapters can be read to you by me for free! Help me get the word out about Nutritional Truths as well as my blog at http://www.nutritionaltruths.com. In my blog, I cover topics that will support your efforts in knowing the truths about certain things that may impact you and your families wellness. If you ever have an idea for a blog or would like to suggest topics, please let me know.

The book covers foods, beverages and their ingredients that serve us well and those that support disease and death. Attitudes, behaviors and habits that support illness and those that support wellness. Learn the truth about environmental toxins we often expose ourselves to as well as truths about dentistry and its impact on one’s health.

Be introduced to medical pioneers and their effective solutions to disease over the past 100 years. Inspire yourself with stories from those who have faced a diagnosis and use alternative care to bring about wellness. Folks read or listen to Nutritional Truths for many different reasons.

FIVE FREE COPIES OF THE AUDIO BOOK (1)

DARK day indeed

The Deny Americans the Right to Know Act H.R.1599 was just approved by 275 politicians in the house. It keeps Americans from knowing about GMO’s in their food. H.R.1599 will ensure that labeling of GMO’s is never required and repeals the labeling already put in place in Vermont. It forbids states from requiring any labeling of GMO’s and there are many who benefit from this, though not the consumer.

Genetically Modified Foods have been banned or restricted in over 50 countries including France, Germany, and Italy. The GMO crops introduced 20 years ago have required an extra 500 million pounds of herbicides to be used including Glyphosate (Roundup) that has been linked to the bee colony collapse and lowered numbers of monarch butterflies.

90% of Americans have said they want to know what is in the foods they are buying. If folks understood all the risks and dangers of consuming GMO’s this would not be allowed to happen. Good thing it’s baseball season and along with summer’s heat can keep folks distracted.

If your still not clear on how prominent GMO’s are see here: 88% of all corn grown today is GMO, 94% of all soy is GMO, 87% of rapeseed or canola is GMO, and sugar beets are just over 50% GMO crops. And although we don’t eat it 88% of all cotton grown is GMO. Investigate it yourself to learn more.

It now goes to the Senate for a vote, feel free to reach out to your Senators and let them know your thoughts on the issue. I used to think a politician’s role was to look out for their constituents. Things aren’t always as they seem and be sure to eat organic when possible. The audio version of Nutritional Truths is still being edited and should be out by months end. Feel free to share this with others and Be Well!

Got Hemp?

The first drafts of America’s Declaration of Independence and Constitution were written upon it, Henry Ford built a car from it that was fueled by it, and Washington and Jefferson both grew it. Cultivated for over 10,000 years it was the very first American crop to exceed $1 billion dollars. It made over 25,000 different products including paper, plastics, textiles, paints, oils, food, rope, etc. I am speaking today of hemp, as it is one of our planet’s most amazing plants & this is national hemp week!
HEMP Industrialized hemp is not cannabis (marijuana), and no amount of smoking industrialized hemp can get you high. Prior to 1900, almost all medicines were cannabis-based as it contains proven healing properties. Legalization of many forms of cannabis has spread across the US. Today’s pharmaceuticals are reported to kill an average of one person every 19 minutes. There has never been a single case of death due to cannabis or hemp, except for the times hemp rope was used in hangings.

Government and corporate criminals stole hemp from the American people back in 1937 when they lumped it together with cannabis. Twenty years earlier the government had announced a program to focus on hemp cultivation rather than deforestation. However, folks with tree pulp processing patents, petroleum interests as well as massive tree-filled landowner/paper producers stood to lose a fortune from further embracing hemp. Corporations like Hearst and DuPont profited massively as a result of the Government making all-natural solutions illegal (see product list above) and allowing the patents of countless petrochemical based solutions (rayon, nylon, pharmaceuticals, etc.).

A single acre of hemp produces the same amount of fiber as four acres of trees. A hemp crop can be grown three times in a single year while trees take 10 to 15 years to mature. Hemp requires no pesticides, half the water it takes to grow cotton, and will grow in all fifty states. We have been importing it from Canada, and we look forward to buying it locally sooner rather than later. Hemp is now being grown in America once again as the people regain the right to make the most of a natural and effective resource. The time has come for such a blatant misuse of government power and corporate corruption to cease so that all people will benefit.

All parts of the hemp plant are used: the seed in shell is normally toasted; the center of the seeds or the hearts can be bought whole or in a powder form as protein and as an oil; the fibers of the plant can be made into paper, plastics, textiles, paints, oils, etc. The seeds contain all the essential amino and fatty acids that support optimal health. The seeds contain vitamins and minerals, Omega 3 & 6 Acids, in a perfect ratio of 1:3 to benefit our bodies and minds. Hemp also contains both Super Omegas Stearidonic Acid and Gamma Linolenic Acid, which allows the body easy conversion of all of its Omega 3 & 6 goodness.

If you investigate the facts further, you too will wonder how such a blatant series of lies have been told for so long to the American people. Based on results, hemp will make its way back as will cannabis, to be considered a norm in American society. I look forward to passing organic hemp fields growing as far as the eye can see. Knowing that it will create fuel, food, housing, and clothing. I go into further detail in my book. You can purchase hemp foods at healthful grocery stores or on Amazon. Please share with those for whom you care. Till next week, Be Well!

Birthing of Nutritional Truths.

What began as a personal experiment turned into a quest for truths and then came the need to share much of what I have learned with as many folks as I can. Deciding to write Nutritional Truths and then actually delivering on that decision exposes one to their ways-of-being in life. There is much room for organization and I could not live with myself without publishing what I had learned. This book for me, as it seems for many, is not a finish line, but rather my starting line.

If I waited till I had reached some level of perfection in my own life, it may have never happened. Realized last summer out in the deserts of Arizona that my life’s purpose going forward is to educate about illness and wellness. Still don’t have anywhere near all the answers, likely never will, but the ones I now know are in the book.

I have witnessed too many family members, friends and colleagues dying needlessly and often at far too young an age. Many of them from heart disease and cancer. I learned that while they were likely oblivious to their own contributions to their illness, they were also in the dark about various effective solutions for what ailed them. While not pointing any fingers, as I would have four pointed right back at me, it is important for us to know how we can shift the crosshairs of disease off of us through informed choices and actions.

This begins my weekly blog and you’re invited to join me each week, as I share information that may serve you well! Kindly share my book,join me on Face Book-link to the right, and that will allow you to see each new addition to my blog. Consider sharing with those you know and care about and I welcome your feedback, questions and ideas! Take a look around this site to learn more. Be kind to yourself for me, and be well!
