Do you eat radioactive colored foods? Multi-colored breakfast cereals? You shouldn't! Not only is it clearly unnatural but it may cause cancer! Check out this article to learn more. If it can't grow in nature then you shouldn't eat it. It kills me when I see kids chomping down fruity pebbles or guzzling a neon gatorade. Red 40, Yellow 5, and Yellow 6 – are contaminated with cancer-causing substances. Quit eating them!!
Meet the Q-Link Mini™. The Mini™ is a thin, lightweight button designed to attach easily to any personal electronic device, from cell phones and bluetooths, to portable game consoles and MP3 players. It supposedly naturally enhances the human body’s defenses against a variety of life’s stressors, including harmful electromagnetic fields (EMFs), which research increasingly suggests can lead to serious health risks, including possible brain tumors, especially in children and adolescents.
I’m basically glued to my Crackberry and even though I’m not sure that this product can ‘shield’ me from EMF’s, I figure it can’t hurt, right?
The Q-Link Mini™, retails for $24.95. It uses Sympathetic Resonance Technology™ (SRT™) to counteract the negative effects of electromagnetic fields on our bodies. When the human biofield is reinforced by positive, natural energies, like those programmed into the Q-Link Mini™, the body can respond better and more naturally to life's stresses and challenges. Q-Link® boasts that its users report experiencing benefits of improved focus, heightened awareness, and increased energy. I can’t say that I’ve felt this but it gives me a little peace of mind feeling like maybe it’s cutting down on negative energy.

The Environmental Working Group came up with this adorable diagram of when you should buy organic and when you can slum it with your regular produce section. How effing cute is this?
So, last night was the series premiere of what may be the funniest show ever, HUGE, starring Nikki Blonsky. Okay, I'm sorry, I'm a skinny bitch but it was hilarious. It was also mildly heartwarming but it's just too hard to get past the ridiculousness. I'm not heartless or making fun of overweight people in life but the show is just absurd. I apologize to those of you who I offend but the show is hilarious. And not in the way the creators probably imagined it would be. The show is about teenagers at Fat Camp. Well, Nikki Blonsky, aka Will, is a total badass on the show, which you just can't help but laugh at. She is also a contraband dealer of sugary foods that are banned. She sits with a backwards hat, sucking on a lollipop and selling sugary treats in ziplocs to all the other kids who are starving for treats at a camp full of veggies. There were so many other funny one liners too. "No Seconds!" My personal fave was when Nikki B did a striptease accompanied by her own stripper music that she sang and stripped off down to her skivvies. Or maybe my fave part was when NB was "running" away from camp but she's in such bad shape that she couldn't run so she has to walk and take breathing breaks as quickly as she can to escape.
Sidenote, I did glean inspiration from the strenuous 3 hour workouts they put the kids through. So this morning when I went for a run in Riverside park I pushed myself harder. What also got me running? The rat that appeared as I ran by an overturned garbage can. That literally made me sprint!
