Are you setting the stage for the health of your children?

Current studies on the health of our children, specifically our adolescents and young teens, are very disturbing, particularly those that look at the vascular health of young people, while also looking at blood pressure, body fat, weight and diabetes, as well as other parameters we generally associate with inflammation in the body. The villain, as usual is inflammation, causing many chronic diseases we used to associate only with aging, but now it’s crossed generations.

Want the straight scoop? Our national consumption of high fructose corn syrup has gone down by 11% but don’t do the happy dance yet, because despite this promising trend, over all sugar consumption has increased.  Thanks to the Sugar Industry, we are advised to go back to refined sugar, a “healthy, natural” alternative. ...

To Do List – Will you remember, before you forget?

Don’t wait until your brain starts slipping.  Get on top of it now.  There is some urgency, especially since pharmaceutical research has yet to find a cure for Alzheimer’s. Inflammation is the enemy. Antioxidants are the key.  Cook with healthy fats like olive oil and coconut oil, but watch the flash point.  These healthy fats can oxidize quickly, turning toxic in a hurry.  Eating fatty fish is another story.   Fish like wild salmon are full of healthy omega 3s EPA and DHA making them an abundant source of antioxidants, but contaminants are unavoidable throughout every ocean on the planet.  Solve...
