Heart Healthy Love: The Exam Room podcast with Vegans Chuck Carroll & Kimatni Rawlins

While heart disease kills more Americans every year than accidents, strokes, and diabetes combined, a vegan diet has repeatedly been proven to dramatically decrease your risk of developing the condition. And in some cases, a plant-based diet has even been shown to reverse heart disease. In this episode, you will learn how a vegan diet can help you achieve optimum heart health and how small changes to your diet can make a major positive impact. Join “The Weight Loss Champion” Chuck Carroll as he welcomes Kimatni D. Rawlins, Founder of www.FitFathers.com.

Cheerios GMO Secret

GeneralMillsQuote_1The Os you know — maybe even grew up with — contain an unhealthy secret.  Despite Cheerios’ marketing about being trusted and heart healthy, these little O’s contain genetically modified ingredients (GMOs).

Why have Europeans been able to get non-GMO Cheerios?  Because of consumer pressure.  We need to keep the heat on General Mills, NOW.  We all deserve safe, healthy, non-GMO food! Please post a GMO comment on Cheerios’s Facebook wall.

Suggested comments:
“Cheerios you have the chance to be a leader and remove GMOs from your cereals!”

“I grew up with Cheerios, but I won’t feed them to my kids because you now use GMOs. Say no to GMOs!”
