The following is a general idea of how the Water Taste Test was conducted.

All my life i've been eating good tasting "junk" foods. i would eat out about everyday going to fast food restraunts, eating this eating that, but one day i said to my self "Am i really eating healthy".Dont get me wrong fast foods such as Mc Donalds, Burger King, Wendy's and such, but its not really good for you.

Remember the children's series "Bananas in Pajamas", as of now I find it possible to actually have those big of bananas at this rate. Interesting enough, my cousin created his own garden full of various fruits and vegetables (which I'm very proud to hear him invest himself in something other than video games) and the size of his bananas and grapes, etc. are extremely smaller than the ones… Continue

Yesterday night i was watching Taboo on Tv and the episode was about people being Fat. Some people got to their "big" size because they "choose" to be "big". Unfortunally a part came out on women in Mauritania, these women force feed their daughters into getting fat. These girls young as 5 years old are being force fed and beating if they refuse to eat. To me this is HORRIBLE
and it breaks
my heart that these young girls have to go through this. Its so… Continue
