Can green smoothies “DEVASTATE” your health?

Sarah the Healthy Home Economist online recently posted an article about how green smoothies can “DEVASTATE” your health.  The content was so unsubstantiated that at first I refused to respond to it. But Amanda said, “She has a big audience and people are freaking out about it.” Sarah cites the oxalates phenomenon, wherein a natural […]

My friend Chris’ last public words before succumbing to cancer

I have seen people, when they are educated by those who tell the truth, become really angry. Tina, whom I met at CHI, 44 years old, was livid to discover she has been educated by industry. By folks with a profit motive that is in conflict with the interests of public health. She said, “Everything […]

All I think about is cancer…if there were a cure, my doc would tell me…part 5 of 7

That old “if there were a cure for cancer, wouldn’t all the doctors be using it?” an M.D. employs in his rant I just read against all non-toxic treatments is a farce. Medical doctors like everyone else are eating pizza and soda on their lunch break, doctors have among the highest mortality rates of any […]

Question authority and use your critical thinking skills

One of my readers, Amanda, sent me this exchange that got her labeled a ‘Dissenter’ and ejected from Joe Mercola’s forum. Whey protein, including his, is a highly processed food with additives and flavorings you should avoid. Most Americans are overdosing on protein, but if you feel you need more, I hope you look to […]

Costco products to avoid

I was at Costco today and saw another product that is an egregious example of how savvy marketers are preying on those who have a small amount of nutrition information but don’t understand the big picture.

Is agave a superfood or a poison?

Dear GreenSmoothieGirl: Dr. Mercola says agave is going to kill me! Is he right? Answer: I have been inundated with emails about this. In every class I teach, someone brings it up. First of all, Dr. Mercola didn’t exactly say that, although he allowed it on his web site. Mercola is a brand, a big […]

me and Matthew debating “chemicals” and whole foods

I have more to say about Expo West, but today I’ll write you some of a text exchange I’m having right now with my good friend Matthew F., who loves science and despises religion. I’ll leave out the unrelated parts, like about what day we’re going to take our kids skiing this week: MF: Did […]
