Here is a list of points I feel are important to highlight from the video in regards to what is OK to eat when it relates to your health and our environment. My eyes have been opened to a number of health issues ever since I attended an Anthony Robbins seminar 2 months ago and has become even more of a priority than I thought it already was.
I’ve always had what I considered a personal mantra of “prevention is better than a cure.” This is a lengthy video but it’s worth a listen for your health and your children’s health. The thing I like about this author is that he’s not saying he knows everything and that you should listen to him only. He tries to point you in the right direction and offers suggestions on where else to get nutritional education.
