Late Night Food Rant

As I was writing a blog post this evening about foods I thought people should never consume (that post to come soon), I got to thinking about why people in this country don’t eat healthier.

Do You Suffer From Migraines?

  Mr. Smith was at his wits end. He had been dealing with migraines on and off for over 2 years now with no clear cause or relief. He tried medications, relaxation, avoiding certain foods, and staying away from any sort of chemical or cleaning product. The meds were the only thing that temporarily worked,…

Aflatoxin Exposure: Reason for Concern?

I’ll admit it. I haven’t been paying much attention to aflatoxins. Sure, I’ve seen news clips about them here and there, particularly related to peanut contamination (and rather sensationalized at that), however instead of digging further into the health implications I more or less put my fingers in my ears. “La la la la la.”…
