We Are Making Progress

The natural health movement is clearly making an impact. The consumption of soft drinks is going down and the junk food sellers are changing their marketing pitches to you so they can catch the "health wave." Since this site is one of the primary movers and shakers of the health movement -- after all, we are the largest natural health Web site in the world -- it is our responsibility to warn you about the dangerous deceptions that lie ahead. As I find them, I will let you know as soon as I can.

There are four mentioned in this awesome USA Today article, but the first three are absolute scams. It is important to understand that it is physically impossible to have a healthy soda, chewing gum or doughnut, so don't let any purveyor of such miserable junk food tell you otherwise.

The last option, a healthy chocolate, actually is the real deal. When this news first came out in the late 90s, I thought it was more deceptive marketing as the initial research was funded by Mars.

However, now I am convinced that chocolate can be a powerful health food, as it is full of useful polyphenolic bioflavanoids. You just need to be cautious about the other junk thrown in the mixture. The healthiest form of chocolate is raw cacao nibs. Unfortunately, only a very small percentage of people actually enjoy them because they are so bitter.
