Oh Look Honey There Are Egg Whites In The Candy Corn They Must Be Good For You!

I despise candy corn. No reason. They never made me sick.  I do not eat them but the sight of them makes me crazy. I think my level of Dante's Inferno would be stuck in a room with Rush Limbaugh, a big screen TV showing fox news and a bowl of candy corn.
According to the National Confectioners Association, more than 35 million pounds (or nine billion pieces) of candy corn will be produced this year.

Why You Should Start Oil Pulling Today

Image
Hello Everybody, This is a great daily health practice.  Something I have been doing for the last 2 years. Why You Should Start Oil Pulling Today.  By Morgan Potts (see bio below) Oil pulling is an ancient Ayurvedic method for detox and rejuvenation. It’s a simple practice, with quite remarkable results. Many have heard of it, but never actually dove in to try it. It definitely has a mystical and exciting vibe around it, which made me eager to try. But what exactly is it? What does it do?

In a (coco)nut shell:
To oil pull, simply swish your choice of unrefined, high quality oil in your mouth; similar to the way you would use a mouthwash. My favorite is coconut oil. This can be done anywhere from five to 20 minutes.

With the help of your saliva, all these scary undesirables bind with the …

WORLD RENOWNED HEART SURGEON SPEAKS OUT ON WHAT REALLY CAUSES HEART DISEASE

We physicians with all our training, knowledge and au...thority often
acquire a rather large ego that tends to make it difficult to admit we are wrong. So, here it is. I freely admit to being wrong. As a heart surgeon with 25 years experience and having performed over 5,000 open-heart surgeries, today is my day to right the wrong with medical and scientific fact.

I trained for many years with other prominent physicians labeled “opinion makers.” Bombarded with scientific literature, continually attending education seminars, we opinion makers insisted heart disease resulted from the simple fact of elevated blood cholesterol.

The only accepted therapy was prescribing medications to lower cholesterol and a diet that severely restricted fat intake. The latter of course we insisted would lower cholesterol and heart disease. Deviations from these recommendations were considered heresy and could quite possibly resul…
