Make my day...

I woke up early this morning...obviously sleeping in on vacation is not working and I suppose 7:30 is two hours later than my usual 5:30. I turned on the computer to find Yahoo News (I know not CBC) has on the front page an article that one product in food was making us fat. Hmmmmm...another one than the one I already know is the culprit? Nope, just an article finally published and for the general public to see...high fructose CORN syrup is making us fat. No kidding! Hard to avoid and not only causing us to be fat, but some of us are allergic to corn.

If you need to cut this out of your diet and really want to lose weight go here:

The article on Yahoo was written by Shelagh McNally, the editor of Green Living Online

I still think we the people need to start putting our foot down and demand better food. We have a huge food industry that is making us sick, we then take drugs from companies who do not have our best interests at heart and would like us to remain sick because it is profitable. All I can say is for now, read labels, cut these foods out of your diet, support your local organic farmers and do all you can to obtain better food and better health.
