New Study says 85% of kids juices and snacks have high levels of lead

13 Jul

My friend sent me this article about a recent study that was done on brand name juices and snacks mostly given to children. The findings are disturbing. 85% of these tested had high levels of lead. This included Gerber baby foods and organic products such as Earth’s Best and Trader Joes. Someone commented on this post that you should just buy fresh and make it yourself, but the problem is the water. It is contaminating the fruits and veggies with lead. We could have high levels in our fruits and veggies in our refrigerator and drinking water. All I know is this is very disturbing!

Do Vaccines Really Matter?

23 Oct

This is a very long article my friend sent me but well worth it.  It has some interesting findings.  I am in no way telling anyone they should or should not get vaccines including the H1N1 vaccine. I just thought this was fascinating.  I love medical stuff!

50 Jobs in 50 States

9 Jan

I heard this awesome story about a guy named, Daniel, that just graduated college with a finance degree. He applied for over 40 jobs and he was turned down all 40 plus times. The number one reason was no experience. He thought, ” how do I get job experience?”

He started applying for all different types of jobs in all 50 states. He got those jobs by telling the owners he was a quick study and he is doing research. He could  write a book on this. Anyway, he has been a logger, a wedding coordinator, worked in fast food, he has been a bull rider and done so many other things . He has actually had 10 job offers since then. He is getting the work experience he needs.

Also, since the economy is so bad he will have all this experience to fall back on. It just goes to show if you are willing to work , you can find a job. He is very talented and creative to come up with something like this and I know he will be very successful in life!
