Go, Go, for Non-GMO!
Health
Tuesday, 01 October 2013 21:36
Everywhere USA, October 2013—GMO stands for “genetically modified”, and it’s something you don’t want. You may remember the blowout a few years back over what European farmers were calling “Frankenfoods”. This is the same thing. It’s hit the U.S. big time and consumers are rising up against it.
 
Non-GMO foods are one of the hottest food trends on the market these days. At the grocery store, “non-GMO” is something many consumers are scanning labels for. Some say “Non-GMO” is “the new organic.”

This means that if you can have both Non-GMO and organic, you really have something. To that end, we encourage all consumers to look for products containing a purple cornmeal from a company called Suntava. The product that comes from this proprietary corn product that was non-GMO from the get-go. And this month, they are able to refer to their 2013 crop as certified organic. We’ll have more on this company as we move forward through the remainder of the year; it’s an exciting story.
 
Why is GMO so bad? Because it’s been proven that foods that have been genetically engineered through technology put adults (and especially children) at greater risk for food allergies and gastrointestinal problems. GMO’s can be found in ingredients such as canola, corn, rice, soy and sugar beets.

Survey Says!
Business
Tuesday, 01 October 2013 21:15
New York, New York, September 2013—U.S. drivers are opening up to usage-based auto insurance (UBI) policies, according to a new survey by Towers Watson, a global professional services company. It appears that so-called “pay as you drive” insurance is gaining momentum in the marketplace. Consumers are increasingly willing to let insurers monitor their driving habits with a telematics device in exchange for potential savings on vehicle coverage.

Most (79%) respondents to a UBI consumer survey indicated they either would buy a UBI policy or would be willing to consider the concept. And if insurers would guarantee drivers’ premiums would not rise, that percentage increased to 89%. Interest in UBI programs is growing in all age groups, though it is highest among younger drivers (18- to 34-year-olds).

Wednesday, 11 September 2013 17:08
Everywhere, USA, September 2013—“Getting rid of stress is not that hard to do,” says Santa Barbara-based natural health specialist Dr. Kathy Gruver. “You can choose your response to stress: You can learn to let it go,” she adds.
 
Gruver, who has a PhD in Natural Health and is author of the new book Conquer Your Stress With Mind/Body Techniques, says, “We can’t control what is outside of us, but we can change what we think, what we do with our bodies and what we eat. Done properly, we can be healthier, stronger and lead less stressful lives. It’s very simply a conscious choice we can and must make for ourselves.”
 
Gruver says, “Every major area of our lives offers us the opportunity to make conscious choices that have a significant effect on how we feel, how we look, and what we can accomplish.  Your mind and body are yours and you get to decide what you have them do. You can take charge of stress any time you want.”
