DID YOU KNOW???

SUGAR…The Journal of the American Medical Association says one sugary soft drink a day can increase the risk of type 2 diabetes by 83%

EYE DROPS…Some eye drops have a chemical in them that makes Dry-eye worse? That’s the reason your eyes continue to burn even after you use the drops. I have found a homeopathic drop that is 100% natural and works wonders. The brand name is Similisan. The brand offers dry-eye drops as well as allergy drops. You can purchase them any place you purchase eye drops. All I can tell you is they work wonders for me. One drop in the morning and evening and I’m good to go. If you try these drops, drop me a note and let me know how you like them.

EGGS… Most eggs are useable long after the expiration date on the carton. How do you know if the egg is still good? Easy. Drop it into a large glass of tepid water. If the egg sinks to the bottom, you can use it. If the egg floats, it’s past it’s usable date. I use this method all the time and so far, so good.

SMART PHONES…  Sixty-five percent of smartphone users in the U.S. check their device upon waking in the morning. On average, 18 to 24 year olds check their phones fifty three times a day. Amazing!                                                                             The Week, Sept 19, 2014

WHOLE FOODS… Whole Foods’ customers are suing the high-end market chain for “vastly understating” the amount of sugar in it’s store-brand yogurt. The class action cited a recent Consumer Reports study that found the store’s plain Greek yogurt contains 11.4 grams of sugar per serving, not the 2 grams listed on the packaging. The plaintiffs, who want $5 million in damages, said the mislabeling “is not harmless trivia”.  Ooooppps again, Whole Foods.
