For years, I have used shampoos, never thinking about what chemicals were in them. I never thought that what was in them could be toxic. I mean, how could they possibly be able to sell something that could be harmful? Sadly, there is no regulations on personal products. This means that anything can go into a bottle and then onto a shelf.

We have come a long way from the day when you walked into the produce department and you only had to decide between a red or green apple. Now you step into that section and there are dozens of choices, not only in colors but also in how the produce was grown. We now have the decision of organic, conventional, or GMO produce. What's the difference? How can you even tell? Isn't an apple, an apple?

There are hundreds of chemicals that we put on our body. Could you name all the ingredients in your shampoo? Could you point out the toxic ones from the safe ones? I can't.

For over a month now, I have been soda free. Makes me sound like an alcoholic, doesn't it? For many people, it is not all that different then alcohol. Soda can be very addicting and in my opinion it is probably just as unhealthy as alcohol. We all know that soda is just full of empty calories. That's reason enough to stop. Why bother drinking soda when you could have juice which is actually beneficial to your body, or good old water? Then there's the acidity of soda. Did you know that soda has the same acidic level as vinegar? It can remove rust! Remind me why we put that into our stomachs?
