(NaturalNews) Much like Big Tobacco once did with nicotine, the soda industry and high-fructose corn syrup producers of America have maintained a ridiculous state of flat-out denial about the links between soda consumption and obesity. "Sodas don't make you fat," they insist. Meanwhile, as Americans guzzle down insanely large quantities of soda and liquid sugar with each passing year, rates of obesity and diabetes continue to steadily climb. Surely diet must have something to do with it,… Continue

Hi everyone my name is Iliana. I am one of the youth leaders. Today was the launch of wereFedUp. I am so glad that I went. Today a reporter interviewed me and two other youth leaders. She asked us a couple of questions. And one of the questions that stood out to me now that I think about it was when she asked us why did we chose to eat healthy and how do we feel about the people who surround us and their choices in eating.
I've really never told anyone something that happened to me… Continue

1.Eat a variety of nutrient-rich foods
. You need more than 40 different nutrients for good health, and no single food supplies them all. Your daily food selection should include bread and other whole-grain products; fruits; vegetables; dairy products; and meat, poultry, fish and other protein foods. How much you should eat depends on your calorie needs. Use the Food Guide Pyramid and the Nutrition Facts panel on food labels as handy references.
2.Enjoy plenty of whole… Continue

I've been researching about a book called Fast Food Nation
i really liked the book because it had so many facts that will guarantee you become a vegetarian!(for a short time at least)

Other countries believe that America is just a bunch of fat ignorant people. All this obesity changes our image as… Continue

For all those that know me, I LOVE TO RECYCLE. I get fustrated when I see bottles, cans or paper in a landfill. THIS CAN EASILY BE FIXED!
Most people don’t think twice about what they put in the garbage. The average American produces from 3-5 pounds of trash per day, which adds up to 50 tons per year. That means over 200 million tons of trash are produced by everyone in the U.S. every year! Up to 70% of this trash is buried in… Continue
