Weight Loss Tip: To maintain good nutrition it is important to avoid trans-fats. Trans-fats damage the cardiovascular system. Labels can lie about the presence of trans-fats. Look for hydrogenated oils in the ingredients. Hydrogenated soy bean oil is a common trans-fat. Foods can claim they do not contain trans-fat even when they do. Companies set the serving size so they can round the amount of trans-fats down to zero, but if you eat the whole bag of chips you have still consumed plenty of harmful trans-fats. Be careful, vigilant, and check the ingredients closely.
Labeling is a waste of time! For the past 20 years there have been gmo labeling “talks” in the USA. Nothing has been labeled yet GMO foods continue to grow! Other countries, many other countries, have already BANNED GMO’s and the US is still tiptoeing with labeling! Seriously?!
What many fail to see is that labeling is wasting time because coexistence between non-gmo crops and gmo crops is a myth! Farmers know that even when miles apart, gmo crops contaminate non-gmo, even organic crops. So, it is quite probable that by the time labeling is done, all crops, including organic crops will be contaminated to some degree, thus making “organic” anything, a thing of the past!
