It’s Time to Grow! 5th Annual Hemp History Week is June 2-8, 2014

HHW

Every day, more and more Americans discover the benefits of hemp. This ever-expanding market includes healthy food and body care products, as well as eco-friendly textiles, clothing, auto parts, and building materials. But despite hemp’s growing popularity, an outdated and misguided Federal policy – created in the 1930s – currently prevents U.S. farmers from growing this nutritious, versatile, and eco-friendly crop.

Toxic Levels of Heavy Metals found in Rice Protein

NutivaDoYouKnowProteinPowder_1-2-web

Activist Mike Adams’ recent investigation found that rice protein imported from China had as much as 20 times the recommended limit for arsenic. Soil naturally contains elements that plants might absorb as they grow. Depending on many factors, including geographic region, the level of elements in soil varies. Unfortunately, heavy metals like lead, cadmium, tungsten, arsenic, and aluminum can be hazardous in large amounts or when consumed over time.

The USDA and FDA currently do not regulate the levels of heavy metals permitted in food or supplements. Only in the state of California is there legislation (Prop 65) that requires companies to label and measure risks associated with heavy metals. With these recent developments, the FDA is now considering whether a safety level should be set for arsenic in rice.

Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day, but what I eat for breakfast these days looks much different than it did several years ago. The things I love for breakfast have not changed, but the way in which I make them has changed quite a lot. I’ve always been a pancake, waffle, french toast and muffin kind of girl. Sugar plus “cake” and “carb” for breakfast was my heaven.
