So much for China becoming a world power.

This is not newsbreaking, but I just read about it.

EXCLUSIVE-China gives safety approval to GMO rice

If you ever had any thoughts that China would become the next world power, think again. With this approval of GMO rice and other grains to follow the population's health could be in danger in the coming years.


I wanted to find a few lines to quote here that would start to explain why GMO foods are NOT harmless. But there is so much information on the subject that I decided I would serve you best by directing you to the website of Jeffery Smith, author of Seeds of Deception.

EWG and drinking water

I love the Environmental Working Group website. They work so hard at giving us good, solid information on products that are safer than the average fare. I love using the site for looking up personal care products.

Another offering I love is their list of vegetables that are "The Clean 15" and the "Dirty Dozen". They even offer a mobile app so I always have that list with me when I am shopping so I can determine if I can save a few pennies and buy conventional instead of organic. Check it out on their web site.

Here is their newest report on water. So important. Check it out.

Stealing from others

Ok, I read a whole lot about nutrition. I spend a lot of time running the buying club. All this means is I don't have a lot of time to write. So I steal from others.

Jenny of nourishedkitchen.com fame has spent hours and hours (I am sure) creating this wonderful chart she calls "Nutrient Showdown".

I love it so much that I shared it on Facebook, tweeted it on Twitter and am now posting it on my humble blog.

Take a look. See if you don't think it is worthy of a FB share or retweet. Print it. Save it. Share it.
