10 Healthy Reasons to Eat Apples Everyday

The old Welsh proverb “an apple a day keeps the doctor away” is grounded in current research. Nutritionally, apples are low in calories, providing only 50 calories per 100 grams.

Are you a “Processed Person”?

Don’t be a “processed person”. My friend, Jeri, has this written in the ‘About’ section of her Facebook page, Hard Core Nutrition for the Prevention of Cancer. When I commented about it, she shared this link with me for the trailer of a documentary entitled Processed People. It literally put shivers up my spine! Do you know that at least 90% of the money Americans spend on...
