Are you eating damaged fats?

Fat is one of the body’s most basic building blocks. The average person is made up of between 15 and 30 percent fat, and we need fat and cholesterol for creating hormones, such as: sex hormones (estrogen and testosterone); adrenal hormones (cortisol that regulates metabolism); and steroid hormones and prostaglandins.; however, it is not only important that we choose the right kind of fat coming from whole foods but also that we don't damage these fats.

What’s the Deal with Dairy?

With so much controversy surrounding dairy these days, it is difficult to know for sure if we should or should not be consuming dairy.  Many people lose the ability to digest milk as we get older, known as lactose intolerance.  About 75% of the world’s population is lactose intolerant.  It is very common in Africa, Asia, and South America, and less common in North America, Australia and Europe.
