  • Belly Fat Blues
    Getting rid of your belly bulge is important for more than just vanity’s sake. Excess abdominal fat—particularly visceral fat, the kind that surrounds your organs and puffs your stomach into a “beer gut“—is a predictor of heart disease, type 2 diabetes, insulin resistance, and some cancers. If diet and exercise haven’t done much to reduce your pooch, then your hormones, your age, and other genetic factors may be the reason why.

  • No Organic Merchant sells white sugar or any products containing white sugar because it is a foodless food. It is 99.96% sucrose and when taken into the human body in this form is potentially dangerous. It is touted as an energy food, but such sugar myths are propaganda and is misleading for there is ample evidence that white sugar robs the body of B vitamins, disrupts calcium metabolism and has a deleterious effect on the nervous system. This is why processed sugar is bad for you.

  • Storyteller Nothando Zulu

    I have been telling stories professionally since 1976; when I began telling in an ensemble. As a child I told traditional tales in school in Virginia and when I was eight years old, I told a story well enough that it kept me from getting punished! I love Anansi Tales and Brer Rabbit Tales! I try to share stories with a lesson. I have told stories in Ghana and in South Africa as well as in the Midwest, especially Minnesota and the Metropolitan area of the Twin Cities – Minneapolis and St. Paul. I have been a featured teller at many of the “In The Tradition” festival and conference produced by the National Association of Black Storytellers.

    This fall pledge drive Health Notes show is soooo Good!

  • You’ve seen the headlines: Parmesan cheese made from wood pulp. Lobster rolls containing no lobster at all. Extra-virgin olive oil that isn’t. So many fake foods are in our supermarkets, our restaurants, and our kitchen cabinets that it’s hard to know what we’re eating anymore. In Real Food / Fake Food, award-winning journalist Larry Olmsted convinces us why real food matters and empowers consumers to make smarter choices.

    Olmsted brings listeners into the unregulated food industry, revealing the shocking deception that extends from high-end foods like olive oil, wine, and Kobe beef to everyday staples such as coffee, honey, juice, and cheese. It’s a massive bait and switch in which counterfeiting is rampant and in which the consumer ultimately pays the price.

  • Family caregiving expert David Levy sets forth how to evaluate priorities, understand options, and face bedrock issues (legal, financial, emotional, social), so caregivers can make wise and informed decisions for their loved ones, while gaining peace of mind from knowing they did the best they could under the circumstances.

    Drawing from over twenty-five years of experience, Levy provides caregivers with a model for effective planning and problem-solving, focusing on the nonclinical aspects of caregiving, which are often neglected by medical professionals:

    Caring for young and old victims of disability, illness, and chronic disorders Finding ways to make our healthcare system work Assembling core information about a loved one’s life Developing a realistic view of how much care a loved one needs today and may need tomorrow, and understanding that continuum of care Locating resources that can make a difference in making sure a loved one’s care-needs are met Finding a good family caregiver support group Overcoming the roadblocks the caregiver’s feelings of distress and failure can create Taking a practical approach to that overused phrase “Take care of yourself.”
