Check Out This List

She's done it again: Doc Gurley has written an excellent post entitled Declare Your Health Independence! Here's a tantalizing little snippet:
So how can you use the sun-soaked energy boost of summer to kick start some healthier habits? Here is a July 4th checklist of simple, easy steps you can take – steps that studies have shown will have a BIG positive impact on your health.
Don't miss her link that explains the shared ingredient in McDonald's McNuggets and Silly Putty.

CNN has revealed that the fast-food chain makes this popular menu item with the chemical preservative tBHQ, tertiary butylhydroquinone, a petroleum-based product. Mcnuggets also contain dimethylpolysiloxane, "an anti-foaming agent" also used in Silly Putty.
It's a great read. So go, already.

Let's face it, every child has had mcnuggets at some time or other. How can something so terrible be put in food that so many children eat?
Why isn't the government doing more to regulate what goes into these foods? For this reason alone, I'm grateful to be sick, as I cannot eat anything fast food or processed and I cook everything at home from scratch.
