There has been another outbreak of E-coli poisoning from fresh produce—this time romaine lettuce.
Please, for your own health and safety, don’t purchase or consume any brand of romaine lettuce until this issue is straightened out. The brands involved have been identified as Freshway and Imperial Sysco brands but I wouldn’t trust any of them
I’ve been through this before. You might recall that my family was poisoned during the spinach e-coli outbreak almost 4 years ago. My youngest daughter, 18 months old at the time, spent 9 days in intensive care before we knew she was going to live.
Click here to see my video about what our family went through with our daughter.
E-coli strikes the young and the elderly the worst. Those under 3 years of age and over 70 have the greatest chance of dying from exposure. The rest of us usually get the stomach flu from hell.
I’m asking you to avoid all brands of romaine because if I learned anything from my daughters near death it’s that the truth rarely comes out about the source of the bacteria and that multiple brands use a few select processing plants that could be infecting every brand run through that plant.
In fact I’d avoid all lettuce for a while for the same reason—even organic. The companies involved will never divulge the whole truth about what’s going on and the people who have gotten sick will never get to the bottom of it either—they don’t have the time or MONEY to do it.
Believe me, as soon as the report went out, damage control kicked in and we’ll never know how it all went down. If you end up in court it will probably be with a sacrificial lamb and not the real company.
If you or anyone you know is affected by this drop me a note before you file your lawsuit. I’m might be able to pass on a few very valuable tips to help you succeed.

The Dead Zone
The “Dead Zone” is a term used to describe an area of water or land that no longer can support life.
The most famous one to most Americans is the Dead Zone off the coast of Louisiana where the Mississippi River empties into the Gulf of New Mexico. It covers over 7000 square miles and the oxygen levels have dropped to a point of no longer being able to support life.
This has been documented for over 20 years yet I doubt if most of you have ever heard about it. The Dead Zone is created by toxic chemicals from industrial pollutants, pesticide and fertilizer runoff from farmland, and the incredible amount of runoff from the animal waste from factory farms.
You know, the same stuff that’s in most of the food you eat. Read more…
If you have a child of any age now is the time to start them on the road to good heart health. It’s pretty simple and there’s probably not a better thing to focus on than this if you’re concerned at all about your children’s health.
A report was just released showing 20% of teenagers between 12 and 19 had abnormal levels of fat in their blood.
High cholesterol and triglycerides topped the list, along with abnormal blood lipid profiles. In other words, too much bad cholesterol, not enough good. The percentages go up with obesity and I don’t have to tell you what a problem that is with kids today. Read more…
A lot of you have asked questions about high blood pressure and I just wanted to clear a few things up with this video
Here are a couple other links on my website related to heart disease

I’ve been doing a lot of research for my new book on heart disease and came across this video I wanted to share.
If you know me personally or have been to one of my speaking engagements you know I like a good laugh. This is especially good because it highlights a real problem—the effect of stress on heart health.
The speeding up of the heart rate and the added tension puts a huge strain on the hearts energy production and raises it’s nutritional requirements. You can see why I’m real big on eating well and reducing stress.
I never thought I’d say this but………………………THANKS HOMER!
On a more serious note, here are a couple of links to pages on my website regarding heart disease.
I would love to hear your comments below and if you have any humorous videos you would like to share, please let me know.
How can a 32-year old person die of natural causes? Heart attack?
It’s simple…Take enough pharmaceutical drugs and something will stop working.
Your heart, liver, or kidneys, something is going to fail. Maybe it’ll happen suddenly or maybe you’ll be like most—suffering the slow, miserable decline of vitality that saps you of all enjoyment in life until you or your body just gives up.
That’s natural too. Read more…
Depression – Misunderstood & Puzzling?
It would be hard to find a topic that affects more families in this country than depression – or one that’s so puzzling to deal with.
Depression is so misunderstood and seemingly beyond the realm of the common person to comprehend – it’s also the condition we so often just turn over to pharmaceutical drugs.
Nothing will make you ever feel so powerless as having a loved one, a child, spouse, parent etc, suffering through a bout of depression. Read more…
Can Anyone Ever Remember When It Felt
Like You Could Trust The News?
I may be dating myself but when Walter Cronkite died it caused me to wonder what ever happened to the news and when did it just start to become a blend of marketing and brainwashing?
The latest news report on organic foods is a great example of filling space without checking any facts but the ones you like. Read more…
Spring is winding down, summer is nearly here, and it’s time a radical shift in the way we look at food.
So much talk about nutrition focuses on specific nutrients and products that we often forget that the basis of any good health program is simply the how, what, why and where of the food we eat.
Seasonally it’s a time of transition and a great time to become more conscious about the source of our calories.
The gods of panic are amongst us again whipping up our anxiety levels with the threat of the next great pandemic:
Swine Flu – It Is Real
The swine flu is here. I’m just not jumping on the pandemic band wagon and probably never will.
Pandemic seems to be a favorite word the media throws out there to get attention and part of me feels that pharmaceutical companies are in love with it also. Read more…
