Is your Temple on fire?

February 6, 2014 in Authors, Health, Lifestyle, Southside Articles, Wendell Fowler

I’m urgently sharing today’s research which clearly proves your holy temples state of health is profoundly at the mercy of the types of food you eat. Poor nutrition choices and undiagnosed food allergies can cause inflammation, the silent killer, inside your temple, which can lead to heart disease, cancer, stroke, arthritis, diabetes, asthma and allergies.

Frequently unnoticed until it is too late, internal inflammation most often comes from undiagnosed processed food allergies. From a N Y Times article, “Scientists are coming to realize that inflammation may underlie many other common chronic diseases that come with aging, including atherosclerosis, diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease, cirrhosis of the liver, osteoporosis, some bowel disorders, psoriasis, meningitis, cystic fibrosis, and cancer.” The NYT reported, “Two large studies — one in men and one in women — have demonstrated that the higher a person’s C-reactive protein level (Inflammation marker), the greater the risk of a heart attack or stroke. Doctors nationwide are adding the C.R.P. test to cholesterol screening to evaluate people’s risk of atherosclerosis.

If you placed Clorox onto your flesh your skin would rebel and become irritated; inflamed. After all, Clorox was not meant to be applied topically. Naturally you’d reach for a soothing poultice to cool the inflammation; same with processed junk foods. The culprits are basic foundation of the disastrous Standard American Diet: soda, sugar, flour, white rice and bread, booze and table salt. On the other hand, raw garlic, green tea, raw cacao, flax seed, olives, fresh ginger, fish oil, nuts and turmeric successfully ‘cool’ inflammation. In laboratory tests, turmeric effective mitigated skin, lung and neurodegenerative disorders, cancer, heart disease, diabetes, osteoporosis, cataracts and intestinal diseases.

Inflamed from eating alien industrial strength foods, your temple will produce more cholesterol, sending it into your blood in the form of “lipoproteins” to soothe and repair inflamed areas of your temple. Ergo: High cholesterol levels. Researchers indict cholesterol as partner in crime with inflammation.

The connection between inflammation and chronic diseases is solid. The abundance of food additives causes allergies which overstimulate the immune system to react and cause inflammatory responses. Inflammation interferes with your temple’s healing mojo. Experts point out the potential disease-fighting benefits of the anti-inflammatory plant food diet. Internal Chronic inflammation erodes your wellness and paves the path for ill health.

After my miraculous healing, I decided to never go down the ‘processed food’ road again. One fork-full at a time, I patiently began changing my diet. I quickly learned it’s a marathon, not a race and dietary education is crucial for glowing health, self-esteem and a peace- filled heart. If you’re less than whole, suffering from allergies from eating foods alien to your cells intelligence, your ability to thrive and connect to God is greatly diminished. Remember ‘Towing Inferno?’ Inferior material is a recipe for disaster.

A ‘Heart-y’ substitute

January 30, 2014 in Authors, Health, Lifestyle, Living, Southside Articles, Wendell Fowler

Maybe not you, but for a variety of health reasons folks are seeking, clean, alternative sources of protein. Clean protein can come from plant foods and barnyard animals. In fact, plant protein doesn’t contain snarky saturated fats that cause plaque buildup which leads to heart disease.

The American Heart Association (AHA) says it’s alright to eat red meat as long as you limit the amount. Gorging hard-to-digest meat three times a day diminishes your holy temple. The AHA recommends limiting red meat, skinless chicken, pork, and fish to less than six ounces per day, total.  Fish should be eaten at least twice per week, preferably fish high in omega-3 fatty acids, such as salmon, trout and herring but not from the Pacific surrounding Fukishama.

Meet an ancient plant protein source called Tempeh. Enjoyed by millions for millennia, high-protein Tempeh (tem-pay) is fermented soybean cakes.  Tempeh is easily digested and has a nutty, mushroom taste and takes on the flavor of the dish it’s used in. The fiber in tempeh lowers risk of colon cancer by bind cancer-causing toxins. It is also preventative against other cancers, like breast cancer.

Americans consume roughly 8 ounces of meat daily; 45% more than the USDA recommends. Going meatless one day a week can reduce the risk of chronic preventable conditions like cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes and obesity. Meatless Monday’s is a popular program – Going meatless one day a week can reduce the risk of chronic preventable conditions like cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes and obesity. Environmentally, tempeh limits people’s carbon footprint and save sacred air and water resources.

With meats prices soaring, tempeh, Indonesian in origin, is a cost-effective protein. Sandi and I use it to make sloppy Joes, sandwiches, pasta sauce, fake tuna fish salad, or in a Caesar Salad.  We get it at Meijer, Kroger and our community health food store. Famous tempeh eaters are Brad Pit, Ellen, Carrie Underwood, Mike Tyson, Bill Clinton, Socrates, Edison, Steve Jobs and Richard Gere.

The USDA says tempeh and meat both count as protein foods. While unctuous meats provide a rich source of protein, they don’t work for all diets. Tempeh, made from soybeans, fits into almost any type of diet. Loaded with micro-nutrients and protein, tempeh is an alternative protein source in flexitarian, vegetarian, raw, or vegan diets. You don’t have to become a full-blown ‘tree-hugger’ to reap tempeh’s perks.  A growing number of health experts believe simply eliminating meat and dairy for a few days a week can make your temple healthier.

You are a beautiful, blessed and worthy. Love yourself. Eat more clean plant protein.


Rock the Guac!

January 23, 2014 in Authors, Health, Lifestyle, Living, Southside Articles, Wendell Fowler

Creation intentionally provided mankind an extraordinary constellation of plant foods with delightful perks. Science concludes a plant-based diet is the key to vibrant health, beauty and wellness. Avocados, the “alligator pear,” because of its alligator skin texture and pear shape, is a super-food native to Central and South America, where they have been cultivated for over 10,000 years. The Aztec word for avocado was ahuacatl, which means “testicle tree” due to their appearance on the vine.

Heavenly raw fruits, vegetables and plant foods explode with health-promoting sun blessed vitamins, minerals and phytochemicals. Vitamins are destroyed by heat, proteins are structurally spoilt, and minerals are altered from their organic and absorbable state that cannot be easily assimilated by your temple’s trillions of cells.

When seeking avocados, pick the darkest ones; when the manager isn’t looking, gently squeeze it. Ripe Avocados will give slightly. Flick off the stem. If it pops off easily and underneath it is bright green, you’re good to go. On average, 53.5 million pounds of guacamole are eaten every Super Bowl Sunday, enough to cover a football field more than 20 feet thick. That’s a game I’d love to watch.

Yes….delicious Avocados are fatty, but it’s good fat that prevents heart disease and promotes healing.  Creamy Avocadoes contain Monounsaturated fats oleic and linoleic acid that promote heart health and play a vital role in regulation of cholesterol. The vibrant, highly nutritious green orb also prevents other diseases caused by vitamins or mineral deficiency. Avocado’s contain:

  • Vitamin E combats arthritis, rheumatism, asthma, and other inflammatory disorders. Vitamin E also improves metabolism.
  • Fiber encourages weight loss.
  • Regulates blood sugar. Vitamin B1 breaks down sugars in the body and supports nerve and heart health.
  • Folate is important for liver function; controls homocysteine levels.
  • Vitamin B12 – Vitamin B12, or folic acid, helps to preserve neurological function and DNA synthesis. It also plays a key role in the health of red blood cells. The nervous system relies on vitamin B12 for proper function as well.
  • Dietary Fiber – Dietary Fiber stimulates digestion and peristalsis, helping to relieve indigestion and constipation problems.
  • Omega Fatty Acids – Omega fatty acids are unsaturated fatty acids which help reduce the risk of stroke and promote healthy heart and circulatory function.
  • ·         Glutathione boosts the immune system.
  • Contains 35% more potassium than a banana.
  • Vitamin B6 keeps your immune system in good working order. It aids in the breakdown of fats, carbohydrates and amino acids while helping to maintain the health of lymph nodes. Additionally, vitamin B6 helps to regulate blood glucose levels.


Honor your beautiful temple by eating heavenly foods the divine intended us to eat in order to do the daily happy dance and thrive. You’re beautiful and deserve to flourish.

Water you going to do?

January 16, 2014 in Authors, Health, Lifestyle, Living, Southside Articles, Wendell Fowler

There’s the same amount of water on Earth as there was when Earth was formed.  The water from your faucet could contain molecules that dinosaurs drank.  All life comes from water: That being said:

The recent potable water, manmade screw-up in W. Virginia should give us pause to re-think what we take for granted. The president of Big Food Nestlé’s says we, the ants, have no rights to water; it is a privilege. Such arrogance.  Last year, a documentary film, “Bottled Life”, accused Nestlé of selfishly extracting ground water for its bottled brands at the expense of local communities; a ‘Watergate’ waiting to explode.

I predict the next big wars will be corporate battles fought over water. The movie, “Last Call at the Oasis” asserts water rights are more sought after than oil. Nestle CEO Peter Brabeck doesn’t think water is a right and should be privatized. What would our creator think?

Water is the foundation of human health. We live on a rare cosmic water planet. If you find water revolting, please wake up. Most people believe they drink enough water, but physicians admit humans live in a mild state of dehydration.  “How am I going to get 64 oz. water down?”  It’s only eight, 8 oz. glasses friend.  I see folks ravenously gulping down 64 oz. jugs-o-Mt. Dew all day. Dig?  Seems we’re riding a tiger and can’t leap off.

A person can live about one month without food, but only about a week without water.  Like Earth, our temples are two-thirds water; essential in every human function. Water transports nutrients and waste products in and out of cells and is necessary for digestive, absorptive, circulatory, and excretory functions, as well as for the utilization of the water-soluble vitamins.


Sip this:

  • 3 ½ cups from what you eat daily, providing you eat plenty of fruits and vegetables, suppresses appetite; helping your temple obliterate stored fat.
  • Water gives muscles their natural ability to contract.
  • Water relieves constipation.
  • Water regulates the temperature of the human body, carries nutrients and oxygen to cells, cushions joints, protects organs and tissues, and removes wastes.
  • Feed your head. Our brains depend on proper hydration to function optimally.

From the beginning of life, the aging process creates an accumulation of waste.

Sacred water purifies the temple of toxic waste via the liver and the kidneys.  Your kidneys, BTW, can’t function properly without enough water, not Diet Coke.

Give me a break! Water is a right of every life form on God’s perfect blue earth.

Protest peacefully with your dollars. Consider Boycotting Nestle!  Now, excuse me.  This Aquarian water bearer needs to turn of this faucet of information and sprint to the nearest men’s’ room. 

Avoid the Jive 5 for Great Health in 2014

January 15, 2014 in Authors, Health, Lifestyle, Living, Southside Articles, Wendell Fowler

Staying healthy and disease-free just got easier.  While manmade disease like cancer, heart disease, diabetes and obesity escalate, there are morally responsible scientific heroes deeply concerned about your health and urge Americans to read labels; recognize and avoid certain cruddy ingredients that crumble your temple.

The CDC estimates that a further reduction of Trans Fats aka, partially hydrogenated oils (PHO’s) in the food supply can prevent an additional 7,000 deaths from heart disease each year and up to 20,000 heart attacks each year. Busted! They raise “bad” cholesterol levels, increasing the risk of coronary heart disease. These unholy fats lurk in a constellation of baked goods, cookies, candies, peanut butter, chips, and frozen foods. They increase the shelf-life and flavor stability of foods. According to the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute of the National Institutes of Health, over 12.5 million Americans suffer from CHD, and more than 500,000 die each year. Is it worth it? The FDA finally requires food manufacturers to list PHO’s on Nutrition Facts panels

The FDA has banned evil BPA from baby bottles and infant formula packaging. Ubiquitous BPA is in everything from some baby bottles, cash register receipts, eyeglasses and compact discs, the epoxy lining of canned foods, plastic food containers, soft drink bottles, microwave ovenware, and eating utensils. BPA, a synthetic estrogen made from petroleum, can disrupt the hormone system, particularly when exposure occurs while babies are still in the womb or in early life. Even tiny exposures increase risks for breast cancer, prostate cancer, infertility, early puberty, metabolic disorders and type-2 diabetes. Exposure of normal and cancerous human breast cells to low levels of BPA leads to altered expression of hundreds of genes.

Hey Mt. Dew Junkies. Is that Dew worth losing a foot or going blind for?  Prolonged consumption of crappy High Fructose Corn Syrup (HFCS) is harmful to human health. Americans are battling an obesity epidemic unparalleled in human history since HFCS replaced sugar, honey and similar sweeteners. Many reports say HFCS causes a significant risk of obesity, Type-2 Diabetes, liver damage, Hypertension and elevated “Bad “cholesterol. HFCS doesn’t just make your body fat; it also makes your heart fat and causes fatty liver. There’s a strong link between HFCS and elevated triglyceride levels. Together, these can cause arterial plaque build-up and lead to heart problems including stroke. The mercury in HFCS exposure can result in irreversible brain and nervous system damage – especially in young, growing bodies. Way too many foods aimed directly at children overflow with ungodly HFCS.

CBS TV’s Sonja Gupta reported last August that sugar fertilizes cancer cells. Even refined AP flour carbs are turned into sugar. America’s most respected endocrinologists confess sugar is a toxin; a driving force behind cancer, diabetes, obesity and heart disease.

Exhausted? Another unappetizing practice is treating meat, poultry, and fish with carbon monoxide (CO) gas to preserve color and fresh appearance, preventing the product from changing color as it ages. An estimated 70% of meat, poultry and fish sold in the US are treated with mouthwatering CO before hitting grocery store shelves.  “Atmospheric packaging” is practiced in the US, Canada, Australia, the UK, and several European countries.

Depending on your perspective this is good news. Love yourself enough to begin reading labels. You’re worthy and beautiful.

Holiday traditions; a double-edged sword?

December 18, 2013 in Authors, Health, Lifestyle, Living, Southside Articles, Wendell Fowler

Sandi and I attended our neighborhood Christmas party last week, joyfully spending time with our cherished community. We were greeted warmly and offered a taste of holiday history; Egg Nog. Not just any egg nog, it was George Washington’s recipe. After a lip-searing nip, everyone concluded Washington was a chunky alcoholic.  I adore tradition, but it can be a double edged sword, considering ole Georges recipe involved 1 pint each of brandy, rye whiskey, Jamaican rum, one-quarter pint of sherry, 12 eggs, 12 tablespoons of sugar, milk and 1 quart of heavy cream. Holy mistletoe, Santa!

As we know, Americans rip-off things from other cultures saying, “Look what we invented.” Jolly Americans assume eggnog is a milk drink invented by and for Americans. Astronomically caloric and fattening, delicious Eggnog came from Europe to America. Our forefathers created their own version of eggnog, where wine in the original recipe was replaced with rum. Rum was often called grog, so the drink was called “egg and grog,” then “egg’n'grog” and finally “eggnog.”

Call me crazy, most people do, but I question everything these days; no longer living in the vulnerable state of blissful ignorance, but a world of mindfulness. Granted, ignorant bliss works, but not to anyone’s advantage except Big Business who profits from our celebration. I’ve always thought it was ironic that during the sacred holidays we eat foods that defile the temple given us by the Savior we passionately celebrate. Alas, Christ’s sacred birthday truly stimulates the economy. Wonder what Jesus would say to commercialism and coveting on His Birthday.

How about giving yourself the gift of paying attention to your temple’s spiritual as well as nutritional needs?  Returning to your original wholeness as a loving God intended. Your temple desperately needs the appropriate heavenly fuel in order to be the cable antennae to the divine.  Instead we’ve been taught our temple can handle anything we throw into it, so we mis-feed it with gusto over the sentimental holiday. (I’m no angel either) Yes for a while all will be Holly Jolly, but over time, repetitive exposure to agribusiness-chemicals, GMO foods, grease, sugar, trans-fats, and various unholy environmental snark build up, diminishing your temple’s health and connection to our higher source. And some will shake a trembling fist to the sky, “Why me?”

God’s ultimate gift to us was His Son and a temple home for Him to visit each of us. Let’s ‘Gift’ back genuine respect and gratitude for our existance. Ponder what’s on the end of your holiday fork and what’s swirling in your crystal punch cup of Egg Nog. Sure, Celebrating Christmas without sabotaging your temples health or dancing on the coffee table may be difficult, but it is doable.  Merry ‘moderate’ Christmas to all!

Childhood Cancer: Protect and preserve

December 16, 2013 in Authors, Health, Lifestyle, Living, Southside Articles, Wendell Fowler

Heartbreaking news – the main cause of childhood deaths in America used to be accidents; today it’s cancer.  Low-grade food, the environment and poor parental role modeling; yes, parents, you screwed up. Stop trying to win the family popularity contest. The American Society of Clinical Oncology says one out of every 300 boys and one out of every 333 girls will develop cancer before their 20th birthday. One in two adults will get cancer in their lifetime.

With cancer the number one child killer, what are your kids’ odds? Forget this fruitless, corporate race for the cure.  Winning the war on cancer requires prevention. Have they ever cured anything? Cancer Prevention Coalition (CPC) reminds us cancer is big business. Pharma and mammography tangled with U. S. policy makers directing research funds to ensure their continued profits in cancer diagnosis/treatment. Then why do these charitable “run for the cure” cancer fundraisers continue to profit?

Prevention is a no-brainer. Finding out what’s actually causing this cancer epidemic from independent studies, not studies funded by companies who will profit pointing fingers in the wrong direction is the first step; education and ethics.

The CPC reports multiple studies have come to the same conclusion: repeated exposure to the multitude of carcinogenic pesticides, additives, artificial colorings and sweeteners and ghastly preservatives in this country’s food supply is killing our precious kids. Wake up Parents! The FDA admits numerous carcinogenic pesticides are commonly found in most fruits, vegetables, milk and other dairy products are often laden with growth hormones, pus and antibiotics. Factory farm meat, particularly liver, veal, frankfurters and hamburgers, are also contaminated with carcinogenic pesticides and succulent growth-stimulating sex hormones.

Instead, the EPA allows residues of any carcinogenic pesticide in any food at levels posing allegedly “acceptable” or “negligible risk,” as determined by manipulated statistics. Pesticide in our food is unacceptable, evil.

Parents bathe their children’s brains with electromagnetic radiation. In “Cell Phones and Children: Follow the Precautionary Road” Suzanne Rosenberg wrote, “While the government deems RF radiation safe, there is no current significant research to make this claim.” Modern-day kids experience 100,000,000 times more electromagnetic frequency (EMF) than our grandparents did. Brain tumors are higher in Western, nations.  From cell phones to cell towers everywhere to household appliances, computers and cars emits EMF. These technologies were never tested for potential harmful effects.

The top two childhood cancers are leukemia and cancers of the brain and nervous system. Studies have linked both EMF exposure and childhood leukemia, and EMF exposure to childhood brain tumors. Just like the constellation of unholy chemicals in our food, there is a vested interest in suppressing the truth regarding just how dangerous this continual radiation exposure could be. WI-FI exposure in the house can be limited by opting to hard wire computers to modems and unplugging computers and modems at night or when not in use.

Cancer is manmade. Limiting your child’s exposure to pressing cell phones up to their skulls via ‘hands-free’ devices or even using speakerphone options shows intelligent parenting.  Get them to the colorful community farmer’s market brimming with God’s creations or to look to the sky, to hear the birds, feel the warm sun and wind against their face. In itself, this can be healing. No sweet child deserves to suffer from preventable cancer, yet millions do.


Let the eating begin

December 4, 2013 in Authors, Health, Lifestyle, Living, Southside Articles, Wendell Fowler

“Are we passing to the left to the right?” my departed Mom would ask. With the Amen of Grandpa’s grace, steaming bowls of food began their deliberately lap around the Holiday dinner table.

Serving spoons groaning from the weight of buttery mashed potatoes, released their cargo onto holiday China, followed by ladles of gravy to fill mashed potato reservoirs.  Clanking forks striking the plate herald multiple mouthfuls of ham, turkey, giblet stuffing, gravy, broccoli casserole, sweet potatoes asphyxiated in molten marshmallow, surreal Jell-O molds entering or digestive system stretching our stomachs to their limits.  Snort!  After the culinary carnage, parents would insist that the kids sit respectfully at the dinner table and “For cryin’ out loud, stop fidgeting!’  Naive, it puzzled me how they’d sit at the dinner table for hours after dinner, sipping coffee with clouds of half and half, speed talking, and one more dessert. They were stoned; overdosed on stimulating caffeine and sugar. On top of overeating, which stresses out the heart, they now downed about sixth cup of Uncle Taylor’s special ‘zippy’ coffee he brought back from his trip to Columbia and everyone’s cranked up.  Thumpity-thump, thud 911!  It dawned on me they were speeding their butts off under the influence of caffeine and sugar, and pitchers of brewed, caffeinated iced tea.

Grandma left the food at room temperature on the kitchen counter, covered with dishtowels, for anyone who had absolutely no will power. We’ve come to recognize that harmful food born bacteria is real and doubles every 20 minutes above 41 to 50 degrees. Hence the practice of leaving dinner out all afternoon can lead to a date with a Kayo Pectate lollipop.

This season, eat a light, healthy snack and drink several glasses of filtered water before attending a holiday event. This’ll prevent your blood sugar from dropping, creating false hunger. If it’s your affair, beware of calories consumed while you cook and nosh. Stay ‘sorta’ sober and avoid eating standing up. The extras will get you if you don’t watch out: Cocktails stimulate the appetite, cause dehydration, and lower resistance for that ‘fifth’ second helping. Instead of an after dinner snooze; get some cardiovascular activity like romping with the grandkids and taking a walk with the family pet.  Not only will you burn off calories, but you’ll give your mind, body and digestion extra oxygen and blood flow.

When dinner is over, the last plate’s hand-dried with Aunt Anna Faye’s Irish Linen and the hutch cabinet doors finally snap closed, it’s time for some family fun and games.  Besides poker, Trivial Pursuit, and charades, considers these post-dinner activities to entertain the family:  The Speed-Talking Relay, The Barco-Lounger Sprint and the Snoring/ Belching Competition.  Of course, we cannot overlook Uncle Milty’s Bathroom-Monopolizing-Marathon (The BMM), which took place promptly after the Belt-Loosening Competition?  “What in the world are you doing in there, reading ‘War and Peace?”

Chew slowly, take deep breaths.  It takes 20 minutes for the stomach to send the brain a message that it is full and has had enough.  Show mercy to the urgings of your Heavenly inner body intelligence, and your digestive tract will thank you.

Scan everyone at the buffet table.  Smile at each with genuine love, and then express gratitude for them. Got leftovers? Share them with your local Church mission. After all, it’s the time of year everyone falls in love!

Cranberries bog you down?

November 26, 2013 in Articles, Authors, Health, Lifestyle, Living, Southside Articles, Wendell Fowler

Is there a more festive fruit than the cranberry? As folks ruminate about Thanksgiving, they instantly recall the teasingly tart taste that compliments turkey. Actually, beyond the flavor dynamic, the claret orbs are cran-tastic temple nutrition.  Alas, societies been trained to only consumes them at Thanksgiving or after they get an excruciating bladder infection.

Flee the jaded, candied, jiggling gelatinous log seasoned with cancerous BPA. This year make fresh cranberry salad. Cranberries are sometimes called “bounce-berries” because ripe ones bounce. Growing up, I was never a fan of either and neither was anyone in my family except Mom. Toxic Sugar, however, and lots of it, seems to remove the bitterness, when in fact, ‘the more bitter the more better’.

You’ve heard cranberries help prevent painful urinary tract infections. Why? Cranberries contain proanthocyanidins (PACs).  PACs are effective in inhibiting the adhesion of bacteria, including Escherichia coli, to the urinary tract epithelium. The concentrated pill form is super if you cannot stomach the tart, noble cranberry. Diluted grocery Cranberry Juice is bogus.

Other reassuring studies that suggest that this gorgeous maroon orb is also linked to improved gastrointestinal and oral health via assisting the healthy bacteria that homestead in our digestive system, booting out ‘bad’ bacteria in your mouth, lowers risk of age-related vision loss, prevents of kidney stones, lowers LDL and increases HDL, plus lowers risk of prostate and breast cancer. With that in mind, truck on down to the grocery and buy several bags of fresh cranberries. Use them in fruit smoothies. I wait till the day after Thanksgiving when cranberries are reduced in price and stock my freezer till blueberry season begins. Fresh is infinitely best. When cooking your Steele cut oats, use apple cider; about half way through, toss in a cup of washed cranberries and garnish with walnuts for the Omega 3’s.

It’s recommended that people taking Warfarin / Coumadin, as I, consult with a phlebotomist because ‘bounceberries’ can interact with the medication. Don’t use this as a weak reason to blow them off, however. Adjust your medicine to your diet, not your diet to the medicine unless you have a cranberry allergy. We need the heavenly nutrients all God’s foods have to offer. Smell what I’m cooking?  .

Red is good. The deeper the red color of the tart cranberries, or any red fruit for that matter, the higher the concentration of the health-boosting anthocyanin pigments that preform their healing, protective mojo. Fresh cranberries, compared to the dried, have the highest amount of the antioxidants. Processing, storage, and heating dilute the antioxidant levels.

Cranberries are yet another marvelous gift of our generous Universe.  Plant foods in the originally packaging their Maker intended is all you need.

God bless you this Thanksgiving.

What’s in your coffee?

November 20, 2013 in Articles, Authors, Health, Lifestyle, Living, Southside Articles, Wendell Fowler

The American Food supply is the most toxic on Planet earth; probably the universe. For example, Monsanto, the world’s most vilified corporation, concocted the artificial sweetener aspartame, aka, NutraSweet or Equal. The package of Blue Death is made from the poo from deadly bacteria. Pardon me, poop that’s been treated with methanol. Do you find this repulsive or do you cover your ears and melt into the dreamy sea of denial?

With a plethora of available published scientific support, it ripped my heart out recently observing someone I dearly love, pouring four packages of Blue Death into their beverage. Ignorance isn’t bliss; it perpetuates human misery and needless suffering. Aspartame, aka, sweet misery, is the most dangerous food additive on the market today, accounting for over 80-85% of adverse reactions reported to the FDA, including seizures and death. Reported side effects: decreased vision, migraines and headaches, epileptic seizures, MS, severe PMS, severe depression, irritability, phobias, hyper activity in kids, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia, Parkinson’s, birth defects, including mental retardation.

And this is a mere smattering of the 40,000 complaints reporting symptoms of aspartame poisoning. Methyl alcohol, taken up by the temple as a “Trojan Horse” enters susceptible tissues like the brain then converts into the embalming fluid, formaldehyde and accumulates. This causes severe damage to proteins and DNA that contribute to many serious and chronic diseases, such as cancer, Autism and Alzheimer’s.

Milk sales are declining so The International Dairy Association and the National Milk Producers Federation petitioned the FDA to ‘change the definition’ of milk and 17 other dairy products, including sour cream, yogurt and half and half. This would allow the dairy industry to add aspartame and other artificial sweeteners to those products ‘without labeling it’ for consumers. If the amendment passes, anytime you see the word “milk” on the label, it could include aspartame, but you’ll never be quite sure. What are they hiding?


With the patent for aspartame released to the public domain comes the charming news it’s harvested from the excrement of Genetically Modified E. coli bacteria. Wait; what are we drinking? You heard right; E. coli feces. Apparently E. coli are grown in tanks. As they defecate, their fecal matter is harvested for a protein needed to make aspartame. These fecal proteins are then treated with succulent methanol and voila; artificial sweetener.

Back in 1999, The Independent published an article “World’s top sweetener is made with GM bacteria.”  This report, the earliest disclosures on aspartame in a mainstream newspaper, fell upon deaf ears possibly because its effects were misjudged at the time, hence long forgotten. Today, I dare you to find a gum that doesn’t contain Aspartame, a deadly, poopy neurotoxin.


Don’t take my word for it. Visit or The Aspartame Toxicity Information Center, (603) 225-2110.
