Just Label It – “We the People” Have the Right to Know What’s In Our Food

Over 1 million people are fed up with not knowing all of the ingredients in their genetically engineered food. The FDA has not made an official decision, so the 525 partners of Just Label It are teaming together. They need 25,000 votes in the next few weeks to make an impact.

The Many Benefits From Gardening and Sunshine

I haven’t always been into gardening, but over the last few years I have started to enjoy it more and more. For one thing, it keeps my mind busy so not to wander into the unfriendly areas of my brain. Another great reason for getting my hands dirty, is to help connect me with my surroundings. Nature can be such a beautiful aspect of the world. Taking a break from reality and the technology of the world can make an immense impact on your mood, give you a positive image of the world, and gives you an opportunity to be out in the sunshine. Sun stimulates the production of Vitamin D, which has many benefits, such as: reduces the possibility of risk of getting multiple sclerosis and type 2 diabetes, reduces blood pressure, help prevent bone loss, reduce the severity of cataracts, and much more.

Some of the physical benefits of moderate sun exposure can include an improved immune system, lower cholesterol, increased metabolism, improved digestion, and better liver function. Life can be tough at times, especially during the winter. Help improve your life and the relationships in it by being happier person and maintaining a healthy self-image. Adding in some gardening and backyard improvements or upgrades will help give a sense of pride and enjoyment with your surroundings, and can also produce a nice little workout! On days you are feeling blue, just step outside and catch some sun rays and enjoy the many benefits of sunshine and the Vitamin D it helps produce. Although, getting too much sun exposure can create health problems. So pay attention to your body’s signs of burning (redness, itching, burning sensations) and use a mild sunscreen. Also, have your doctor check anything that is an unusual color, changing in size, or concerns you at all. Stay smart and stay happy!
