We used to believe the world was flat but now we know better.  Now we know the world is fat, not flat.  Statistics show we are  getting fatter annually, and consequently we are getting unhealthier and greatly susceptible to numerous diseases triggered by obesity.  Here is a list of some of the conditions that can be attributed to obesity:

  1. Diabetes
  2. Cancer
  3. Erectile Dysfunction
  4. Hernia
  5. Depression
  6. Gout
  7. Gallbladder Disease
  8. Osteoarthritis
  9. Congestive Heart Failure
  10. Urinary Incontinence
  11. Stroke

Many of these conditions can be fatal.  It’s no longer a matter of how we look, it has more to do with medical problems and serious illnesses occurring from excess overweight carried around for long periods of time. According to the U.S. Surgeon General report, obesity is responsible for 300,000 deaths every year in the U.S.  The National Center for Health statistics estimates that sixty three percent of Americans are overweight.

This was not my topic today but I came across it by following links in a post early on and I was fascinated and disgusted by what I was reading.  The article is so thoroughly well written and so important that I sent it to my circle of influence and that includes my readers here on wordpress.

One of the sites on my Blogroll is: Good Guide (see link below).  It’s here that you can read about food deception risks and how this is compounded by insufficient and/or incomplete labeling.  Good Guide is a comprehensive and award-winning “wellness” venue.  They are contributors to, The New York Times, Oprah, and Time magazine, to name a few.


Once we are aware of the dangers in certain brands of food or types of food it makes it so much easier to sidestep them and choose non-gmo, organic, for supreme health and well-being.

There are excellent tips on both links to help you stay healthy affordably.

Signing off:  I’m on my way to the kitchen to make some delicate little pancakes with organic eggs, almond butter, and bananas. That’s it!  So easy and delicious.   Contact me at nicolerigets@gmail.com  if you want the recipe or leave a comment.
