Today is Earth Day! What can you do to express your compassion and commitment to our beautiful blue-green planet?
The typical Earth Day activities include environmental pledges to recycle, planting an herb garden, participating in a local clean-up or beautification project — all wonderful and commendable pursuits!
If you are looking for some unique ways to celebrate with friends and family, here are 5 “off-the-beaten-track” ideas I’ve come up with:
Z-Pak, one of the most popular and often-prescribed antibiotics in the US, can be deadly to individuals with heart disease. According to ABC news, A Vanderbilt University study found an increased risk of death from heart disease in the first five days of using a Z-Pak when compared to other common antibiotics or no antibiotics. The danger is greater for people with heart arrhythmias (irregular heart beat) and those who have low blood levels of potassium and magnesium.
Some alarming statistics surfaced last year from a joint study by the University of Minnesota and a research group in China and Singapore; individuals who eat fast food twice a week are 30% more likely to develop type 2 diabetes. Double those fast food runs to four times weekly, and you are 80% more likely to die of cardiovascular disease.
What makes fast food so dangerous? The main factor is that fast food is highly processed and largely devoid of essential nutrients your body needs to thrive and survive.

For 2013 I have made a commitment to eliminate any refined sugar from my diet. As a high raw (75-85%) for years, sugar never entered much into the equation, but as I evolved to a more Raw Fusion lifestyle, little by little it started sneaking back in.
Starting with sharing a spoon or two of someone’s dessert and then relaxing some of my former sugar prohibitions, it eventually became apparent that it was time to declare sugar “non-negotiable” — a technique I teach to my students and clients to help them detach from unhealthy foods and habits.
