I no longer shop at Target, but a few years ago when I went to Target to return an item, I noticed that they store the CVV2 values (the security code at the back of your credit card) of their customer’s credit card number. I remember how I argued with one of the managers at Target for almost an hour on why what they were doing was wrong, immoral, unethical and even illegal.

Over-fed but undernourished nation. The obesity epidemic and the so-called "Fundamental Rights" of the American Food Corporations to sell and market sickness!

Statistics show that one in three kids born after the year 2000 is either obese or overweight.

Living close to highways may contribute to a wide range of health problems including autism, cardiovascular diseases and asthma

Living close to fast lanes or highways is not a pleasant experience, especially if you consider the noise, air pollution and the fact that you won’t have much of privacy since many drivers (who are lost) will use your driveway to turn around. Besides all these problems associated with living close to highways, recent studies show that living near freeways could be hazardous to your health. According to the American Lung Association report for 2013, up to 40% of North American populations live close to a busy road. The report states how living or working 0.2 to 0.3 miles from a highway or a busy road is more dangerous than most people think ... Seattle Restaurants

superoxide-dismutase-SOD-can-reduce-stress-boost-bodys-antioxidant-defense-by-reducing-cellular-damage

Why you need antioxidants in your diet? Superoxide Dismutase (SOD) can boost body’s antioxidant defense by reducing cellular damage.

For many years now, researchers have discovered that Superoxide Dismutase (SOD) is the body’s most powerful natural antioxidant enzyme that plays a critical role in reducing the oxidative damage and inflammation. Until recently, any attempts to stimulate SOD have been disappointing and challenging, since SOD protein molecule is easily deactivated by harsh acids and enzymes produced by digestive tract. However, the researchers have apparently overcome this challenge by creating bioavailable forms of SOD using natural plant extracts and partnering it with a protective protein driven from wheat and other plants (so it could be delivered intact to the bloodstream and intestine) ... superoxide-dismutase-SOD-can-reduce-stress-boost-bodys-antioxidant-defense-by-reducing-cellular-damage
