People are tempted by words like “diet” or “sugar-free”, but they are not exactly what they claim to be.

The safety data on these sweeteners is still questionable, but many independent researches show that when these sweeteners are metabolized in the body, they are likely to cause health-related issues that can cause metabolic damage and weight gain, neurological diseases, joint pain, digestive problems, headaches, depression, inflammatory bowel disease, chemical toxicity, and even cancer.


Everyone knows that anything from McDonald’s is unhealthy, yet they still go. Stop! This is the time to find another place to have your breakfast and lunch. For sustainable farmer Joel Salatin, McDonald’s is not just about food – it’s about food mentality. McDonald’s represents the pinnacle of factory-farming and industrial food, and its economic model is utterly dependent on stockholders looking for dividends without regards to farm profitability or soil development.

Moreover, the type of farming that supports this type of food business heavily relies on harmful chemicals that threaten human health and soil health.

White chocolate

Normally chocolate serves not only as a sweet treat but a brain-boosting superfood too. However, white chocolate’s health profile is blank. Dark chocolate is made from the cacao bean, which contains a set of phytonutrients that can increase blood flow to the brain, protect blood vessels and boost mood and focus. White chocolate, on the other hand, does not come from the cacao bean at all. It’s made by mixing cocoa butter with milk and sugar. If you are a white chocolate lover, remember that white chocolate is just a source of empty calories, with a standard 1.4 ounce bar having around 225 calories and lots of sugar and saturated fat.
