Seven Silly Myths about Health and the Moon
Myth One: Dirt on vegetables
is dangerously bad for you.
If that was true I would be really sick right
now. I eat carrots right out of the ground all
the time and I am healthier than ever! Most of
our parents and grandparents would be suffering
from dirt disorder too considering many of them
grew up eating food straight from the garden. PS.
Dirt washes off.
Myth Two: Produce has to look
perfect for it to taste good and be nutritious.
The best tasting fruit on the shelf is the one
with little wormholes in it. That is a fact. All
farmers and food connoisseurs know it.
Myth Three: A diet coke makes
up for the Big Mac, fries and ice cream.
Did you know that aspartame is believed
to cause cancer, seizures and even weight gain?
Ironic that there has been a rise in obesity since
the artificial sweeteners have come out on the
market. Add to it the hamburger, fries and ice
cream you have the perfect recipe for big butt.
Myth Four: Take
long naps to catch up on sleep.
Yeah right! If you
are anything like me, then you will end up in bed
all day. If we listen to sleep experts they say
to take short 15-minute power naps to catch up
on sleep and be more rested. A consistent sleep
pattern is the best way to be rested.
Myth Five: Yoga
does not tone muscles.
Yoga does in fact tone muscles.
All the muscles. Even the love shack muscles. Holding
certain poses, the breath work that is done and
the movements used through out yoga not only tones
the muscles, but is great at improving the love
quotient in the bedroom in many ways.
Myth Six: There is no difference
between certified organic food and conventional
Sure there is, certified organic
food has a higher protein content. Being an organic
farmer, I think we should charge extra for the
bugs, worms and critters on organic food, but for
some reason the consumers don't go for it. So if
you like bland food, with plenty of chemicals -
eat non organic foods. Otherwise choose certified
Myth Seven: The
moon is made of cheese
That's just not true. The
moon is made of old sausages.
