Exposing Kashi Cereal For The Poison That It Is
April 25, 2012 | Toxins | N.Longo
There is an established misconception among consumers that natural or even organic labeling means more nutritious and less toxic ingredients. This is not always the case and breakfast cereals are no exception. The Kashi brand is owned by Kellogg Company, one of the largest breakfast cereal makers in the world. The ownership base of Kashi is still not widely recognized or common knowledge, especially since the Kashi website continues to paint a picture of being a small company. Investigations into Kashi cereals show deceiving claims after their breakfast products were found to be riddled with genetically modified (GM) and pesticide loaded ingredients.

Are Families That Eat Together The Healthiest?
April 25, 2012 | Lifestyle | Editor
"Come and get it!" A phrase historically proclaiming that the communal meal is ready, is heard all too infrequently among contemporary households, especially as children get older. Indeed, over 40% of the typical American food budget is spent on eating out, with family meals often being relegated to holidays and special occasions. Aside from negative effects on the family budget, eating out has been shown to be generally associated with poor food choices and bad health. Of particular interest to public health experts is growing scientific evidence that fewer family meals may translate to increased obesity risk and poor nutritional status, especially among children.

The New Paradigm: Moving From 'Service To Self' to 'Service To Life'
April 24, 2012 | Consciousness | M.Forrester
Among the most destructive of human qualities that has influenced, shaped and guided the world is the path of 'service to self'. The thirst for power, control and insatiable greed has put humanity on a path that has distanced itself light years away (figuratively speaking) from its divine and loving nature. There was a reason for this, as there is a reason for every single thing that happens in the universe. The lesson you are all learning will eventually lead the world from the old paradigm of 'service to self' to the new paradigm 'service to life'. If you thought the old paradigm was powerful, wait until you see what the new paradigm will accomplish on the opposite side of the spectrum.

April 20, 2012 | Consciousness | P.Vaidyanathan

Our Food Industry In 8 Words: We Think We Can Do Better Than Nature
April 18, 2012 | Sustainability | M.Torres
The problem with our food industry and big agriculture goes far beyond foods which are genetically modified, irradiated, pasteurized, homogenized, enriched, refined, toxically preserved, or grown with antimicrobials, pesticides, herbicides, fungicides or any other "cide." The problem is actually in our minds and how we think about food and nature itself. We are filled with knowledge but no wisdom. We think we can do better than nature. We think we can outsmart nature. Most of all, we think there will never be consequences to our superiority complexes in how we treat nature. Nature just waits patiently, until the day comes when she opens the door and decides to cleanse the earth and show the human species who is the smartest one of all. Nature is knocking...can you hear her?

The World As It Could Be If We Only Stand Together
April 11, 2012 | Consciousness | E.Dahl
The world is a beautiful place and generally people’s hearts are good. On the other hand many live their lives amassing fortunes - helping others is the furthest from their minds.

Domination is achieved through fear and intimidation. Our Canadian and US governments are prime examples.

If Your Doctor Cannot Answer These 4 Questions, Don't Vaccinate!
April 2, 2012 | Vaccines | D.Mihalovic
In all my years of researching vaccines, there is one thing that has always fascinated me--why do parents not question their doctors more about the benefits vs. risks of vaccinations? Common sense dictates that a parent should be inclined to inquire about a medication being injected into their child and its associated long-term risks if any. After all, even the medical community admits that every medication carries risks. Sadly, only a very small percentage of the population has the foresight to approach their doctor with inquiries related to risk before deciding to vaccinate. I am striving to change that percentage.

April 1, 2012 | Consciousness | R.Okawa
Those who really understand themselves are very difficult to trap. Conversely, it is easy to trick and bring down those who have no knowledge of their limitations. All that is required is to lay a trap in their path and they will fall right into it. This often happens to people who believe they possess infinite ability. So look at your strengths and weakness, as well as those of people around you. When you arrive at an obstacle, simply think of it as a mater of controlling your desires.
