Health benefits of vitamin C and Study suggests that consuming foods high in vitamin C (such as oranges, strawberries, papaya and broccoli) could reduce the risk of strokes

Vitamin C is a water soluble vitamin found in raw (or slightly cooked) fresh fruits and vegetables like citrus fruits, papaya, pineapple, bell peppers, berries, greens like broccoli and kale and tomatoes. Our bodies cannot store vitamin C, so ideally, every 4 hours one should take 'real' (absorbable) vitamin C supplements or eat fruits and vegetables high in vitamin C. Studies have suggested that people should take 250-500 mg of vitamin C twice a day. For the moment a tolerable upper limit of vitamin C is set at 2000 milligrams ...health-benefit-of-vitaminC-study-suggests-consuming-foods-high-in-vitaminC-can-reduce-risk-of-strokes



Your skin replaces itself once a month, what you eat literally becomes you and you have a choice in what you are made of!

Skin is the largest organ in the body and it’s impossible to achieve a healthy-looking skin without adopting a healthy life style. However, every year, the cosmetic and Pharmaceutical industries make billions of dollars from moisturizing creams and skin care products that contain tons of harsh chemicals. While no one in their right mind would leave tons of toxic chemicals in an organ like heart, millions of women have been brainwashed into thinking that it’s ok to leave tons of harsh chemicals on their face or skin. What the cosmetic industry won’t tell you is the fact that fountain of youth is in your garden and you can wear it for life ... power-of-nutrition-antioxidant-foods-that-are-beneficial-harmful-for-skin-health



Beyond birds and bees, Neonicotinoid pesticides pose a serious threat to human’s health, as well as bees, birds and other beneficial insects

Neonicotinoid pesticides including acetamiprid and imidacloprid (that are responsible for deaths of millions of bees) are affecting developing human nervous system and may even harm developing brains of the unborn babies, experts at European Food Safety Authority say. While further research is being carried out, the experts want the acceptable exposure to neonicotinoids be lowered. According to experts at European Food Safety Authority (EFSA), “neonicotinoid pesticides could adversely affect the development of neurons and brain neural structures associated with functions such as learning and memory” ...neonicotinoid-pesticides-neurotoxins-pose-serious-threat-to-human-bees-birds-beneficial-insect



Grocery Manufacturers Association is pushing for legislation that will kill State GMO labeling; For how long we are going to let evil biotech and GMA sweep their dirt under the carpet hoping that enough number of people would remain indifferent to what they do?

Center for Food Safely has strongly criticized the Grocery Manufacturers Association (GMA) for lobbying to push and pass a legislation that will block states from mandating labeling genetically modified foods. So far, only few states including Hawaii, Alaska, Connecticut and Main have been able to pass GMO labeling bill. Just few months ago, Washington I-522 lost GMO labeling bill, in a slight margin after the giant agribusinesses (out of state) spent huge amount of money to defeat Yes on 522. Two years ago, biotech spent more than $46 million to defeat GMO labeling in state of California. However, biotech is pretty well-aware that other expensive battles against GMO labeling are ahead of them in 2014, in other states like Oregon and Vermont ... Grocery Manufacturers Association
