From Fortune Magazine this week, the CEO of Vaccine maker United Neurosciences DOES NOT get a Flu Shot, because they "aren't very effective."

Yet this article continues to stress that YOU need to get this vaccine to ‘preserve’ herd immunity? For a vaccine with less than 40 percent effectiveness? Oh, and health officials want to mandate itFrom Fortune Magazine this week, the CEO of Vaccine maker United Neurosciences DOES NOT get a Flu Shot, because they "aren't very effective."

Yet this article continues to stress that YOU need to get this vaccine to ‘preserve’ herd immunity? For a vaccine with less than 40 percent effectiveness? Oh, and health officials want to mandate it ... 🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️

If you have any food sensitivities or are following an eating plan that avoids certain foods restaurant meals can be tricky. I love Chinese food but I suffered whenever I ate it. I recently found out that one place was using corn syrup in their sushi. I am even finding organic sugar in nut butters. I rarely use sugar and never use corn syrup because it is so addictive. And Americans wonder why it is so easy to gain weight. What if I was diabetic?

We just returned from a spontaneous 5 day trip to Key West. The trip was great and the Keys fabulous. Protein was no problem, the shrimp and abundance of fresh fish take care of that part. But when on day two I ordered a chop salad with some grilled shrimp and an hour later got painfully bloated and spend 2 hours in the hotel bathroom, I learned that they cheat. I asked a friendly staff member and was told that they add toasted grains for a “nutty crunch” (no, it’s not on the ingredient list) I scrutinized the menus after that, and lived off shrimp, grilled fish, straight up salad greens and bacon and eggs for the remainder of our stay 😂. Not bad either.
My body seems to react now violently to grain and sugar (oh, beware of blackened fish, they add brown sugar). I hate that they cheat, I was served browned butter and learned that they add a little starch and/or brown sugar to “stabilize” it.
