A special thank you to BenBella and NetGalley for an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

FOOD FORENSICS: The Health Ranger's Guide to Foods that Harm and Foods that Heal is an essential book by Mike Adams. The Hidden Toxins Lurking in Your Food and How You Can Avoid Them for Lifelong Health. An important message for every woman, man, teen, boy, and girl. No matter your age. It is time to take control, folks! I am a huge fan and supporter.

The hidden truths exposed. The research, and proof. Our food is slowly killing us. Food Forensics discloses how food contamination happens and why it matters. Providing consumers valuable information on how you can protect yourself.

Watch the Video.

Deception and consumer fraud, from Whole Foods, and many others; from organic, natural, superfoods, and dietary companies. Many companies, food suppliers, markets, and restaurants sell products that are poisoning us, with toxic heavy metals and many other hidden additives and preservatives. It is time to get your heads out of the sand.

When these food companies are made aware of these toxins, they invoke denial and offer willfully ambiguous communication, rather than transparency. Just like drug companies, weapons manufacturers, and Wall Street--many natural product companies seem to be run by people who place profits over consumer safety. We saw what the tobacco industry did. Sometimes it is too late and the damage has been done.

The sad situation people are lazy; they do not want to make costly changes, just like the consumers who hide behind their ignorance. Some people will not take control of their own health, bodies, and make the necessary changes. The companies do not want the cost. It cannot be done with only a small number of people. It takes everyone to take a stand, refusing to buy these products to enforce accountability and changes. If you discontinue buying, they are forced to make changes, accordingly.

Consumers cannot continue to buy the processed foods which contain additives and preservatives, filled with chemicals, poisons, and toxins. While they continue to wonder why they are gaining weight and spend thousands of dollars with numerous health issues. Running to the doctors who prescribe more unnecessary drugs, further complicating their health. In our busy world, today, many families and parents are subjecting their children and themselves with poison, and do not take the matter seriously.

As a huge advocate for accountability, in the corporate world (a SOX whistleblower), as well as the food and health industry, this book contains scientific truths. Everyone needs to take notice, buy the book, and take our food shopping and health more seriously. What are you putting in your bodies?

Trust me, I did so, over thirteen years ago and continue this fight for better food. At that time, there was not a lot was published, and had to do my own research. I wish this book had been around.

Food Forensics: The unleashing. Hidden truths. Nothing held back. Documentation of these products with data acquired from 2013 to 2016. I liked the fact it also spurs widespread denials and even a few lawsuit threats—plus efforts to silence this work, which is not surprising. These companies are training their employees to lie. It is sad to know our food is grown on lands where industrial waste is intentionally dumped and used as fertilizer, plus more.

Consumers cannot hide behind “if the FDA approves” it – it must be OK. Wrong! I believe nothing they say. No accountability. From the food manufacturers, FDA, media, food advertising – colluding to ignore this science and preventing consumers from learning the truths you need to know.

Natural News Forensic Food Lab looks at the industry closely, by randomly purchasing products who make claims and do not comply with the levels published. It is very important if you have not done your research as I have done over the years. The book explains the way in which humans absorb these contaminants and the resulting health effects. (plus why they are so difficult to get rid of).

As I have told my son which lives in another state with a family of his own. They wonder why they have so much inflammation, digestive disorders, and sickness in their twenties, thirties, and forties. Others suffer from neurological damage, organ failure, heart, lung, cancer, and other serious diseases and conditions; Alzheimer’s and dementia- the list goes on and on. Increased toxins in everyday foods.

We all are walking time bombs from toxic metals, chemicals, and routine consumption of contaminated foods, personal care products, and environmental exposure.

The FDA should be doing what these folks are doing. From arsenic, pesticides, leads, and other toxins - even in our drinking water. Our bodies are not made for repeated exposure to arsenic. Why I gave up meats; another story.Look at their conditions and what animals are eating.

It is critical we take control of what we eat and what environmental toxins we subject ourselves to. I am very passionate about these critical subjects. No one will do it for you. By not accepting what others say is passable. It is critical to take a stand. Not many of us genuinely care. Some are in denial, or not educated. Learn the facts. Read labels, and find the hidden things. Like myself and others, the urgency is life-threatening.



On a personal note:
I have always had allergies; however, about thirteen years ago I started my journey. I began experiencing all sort of serious allergic issues, from chemicals, medications, environmental, and mostly serious food allergies. It became so serious with emergency rooms visits, an array of allergy specialists, physicians, and cardiologist, etc.

With full blown anaphylaxis, many times with foods; always carry an Epi-Pen, ongoing sinus infections, ear infections, heart palpitations, tachycardia, PVCs, PACs, headaches, digestive issue, thyroid problems, etc. Even a drop of cream with preservative will send me into anaphylaxis. I have to be extremely careful of everything I put on my body or ingest. It is life-threatening.

This was very serious and began keeping a food journal of everything I was eating from morning until evening, any snacks, and noted the date, time, symptoms, ingredients, as well as a recording of blood pressure, heart rate, and exercise. (I even developed extensive excel spreadsheets for two years). It was well worth the time and effort. The food additives, preservatives, and toxins were causing many of my heart problems and other reactions.

I had always been pretty healthy; however, over the course of five years, I began eliminating foods and seeing a big difference. I have an entire list of additives which create havoc. Some of these foods may take up to 12 hrs. after ingesting to notice symptoms, some sooner; the aftermath- some may last up to days or a week. I saw proof of this with heart tests and 24 hr Holter heart monitor. When you graph and chart, what you see is astounding. You see the heart rate changes, insomnia, and blood pressure. Totally out of control. I am also unable to take any medications, vitamins, and highly sensitive to environmental toxins.

In addition to my food research, I have to stay abreast with my environment. I live in a high-rise apartment building and property management. From toxins, fumes, mold, cleaning supplies, ventilation systems, etc. (an advocate) forcing them to eliminate air fresheners, perfumes, smoke, and certain cleaning products, as well as other toxins. Showing proof of the seriousness and health hazards- take your complaints to local and state levels. You cannot sit back idly. It takes everyone working together. Let your voice be heard. You only have one life. Live it toxic free, or as close as you can.

I have been vegan for the last eight years. (No dairy, bread, grains, or meats). No sugars, flours, or processed foods, preservatives, or additives. Nothing in a can, box, or freezer. No alcohol, caffeine, or fruit juices. Wine is full of sulfites (horrible). If you eat correctly, the food cravings for the bad stuff will go away. Fresh organic vegetables. However, even with these, you have to be cautious. I do eat some fruits, as well. I stay away from some which cause inflammation.

Not only did the heart problems cease, no more anaphylaxis reactions, and other disorders. I felt great, and continue to maintain the size 4-6 with no weight gain. You feel lighter. It is worth the extra effort. It is a lifestyle choice and one I am glad I made. I take my foods very seriously and dedicated to maintaining my health. I do not dine out (do not trust foods) and carry my own food when traveling. If I go out with others, I do not eat or drink. BTW, I stopped shopping at Whole Foods over five years ago.

I literally could throw out everything in my son’s pantry, refrigerator, and freezer. They see what I eat, which is vegan fresh organic vegetables and water. It works for me. However, they choose to stay with the same bad processed foods and sugars. From dining out to home meals, and snacks. They like convenience. I am still working on them.

I also work with hotel groups and these properties are in tune with natural foods, special diets, vegans, and healthy food choices. When traveling shop, and demand what you need, or go elsewhere. It takes education, and wise shopping and determination to take control over your food choices.

Make changes. This should carry through to our children, and grandchildren. It amazes me how many people are not aware of the dangers of foods and how they can damage your body and health. If they read about them, they disregard and do not take it seriously, until they are hit with health problems.

The detrimental health effects triggered by gradually accumulating minuscule concentrations of toxins through repeated dietary or environmental exposure. In addition, our dietary exposure to toxic heavy metals through foods is a far greater problem than most people suppose. From the lack of exercise and no sweating, heavy metals accumulate in bodies of the obese. This book is an excellent source.

I really enjoy Mike Adams, The Health Ranger and NaturalNews.com. A fabulous team, doing great work to expose and take initiatives to help promote the road to more accountability of the food industry. Awareness. Highly support anyone or cause, who helps expose and educate consumers of our food industry.

A "must read" book and source for everyone! Protect yourself. Your health. Take control of what you eat and your body. Join the fight! Buy the book, and take the journey to a better life and world.

Break Free from the Hidden Toxins in Your Food and Lose Weight, Look Years Younger, and Get Healthy in Just 21 Days! 


By: Vani Hari, Mark Hyman (Foreword)

ISBN:  0316376469

Publisher:Little Brown & Company

Format: ebook Kindle 

My Rating: 5 Stars


THE FOOD BABE Break Free from the Hidden Toxins by Vani Hari, a food activist who has courageously put the heat on big food companies to disclose ingredients and remove toxic additives from their products; a must read for all Americans in our toxic world today! A much needed wake-up call, an education, and an informative guide in easy-to-read format, for a journey to living a clean and healthy lifestyle.

Even though I am very familiar with most everything Vani has included in her book, (picked up some new tips), an excellent choice for those who need to get off the fence and take this food journey seriously. A down to earth book, which I can give to my family to help them make changes. I wish this book had been offered some ten years ago, as had to conduct my own research.

She is honest and driven and it takes this drive and determination to make changes especially fighting against the food giants. It is frustrating how the industry can hide facts, ingredients, and information harmful to humans. Wake up Americans, this is serious business! Our food industry is killing us. Our health, our families, our children, grandchildren, and our future is at stake.

My personal experience: I am very obsessed with allergies, foods, toxins, wellness, and health facts. For the last fifteen years, I have been impassioned about learning how foods, medications, and our environment contributes to health; from toxins, allergies, to hormones.

Years ago, I began experiencing series food allergies, and numerous other reactions described in this important book. I began a mountain of online research, books, and health food stores. I kept a food journal daily for years, recording ingredients, symptoms, heart rate, blood pressure, exercise, etc. Ultimately, the additives and preservatives were causing my issues from PVCs, tachycardia, irregular heartbeat, insomnia, stomach, sinus infections, headaches, and the list goes on and on. I spent years trying to get to the root of the problem, and yes, it is food. You are what you eat.

After experiencing all sorts of allergic problems, from chemicals, medications, environment and mostly food allergies. It became so serious with emergency rooms visits, an array of allergy specialists, physicians, and cardiologist, etc. With full blown anaphylaxis (5 times-very scary), always carry an Epi-Pen presently. Over the course of two years, I began eliminating foods and seeing a big difference.

I eat fresh organic vegetables, some fruits, quinoa, beans, lentils, and whole grains. For the last few years, I have experienced no heart palpitations, no anaphylactic attacks, no allergies, sinus issues, or stomach problems. I take no medications, or vitamins, no prescription drugs, or over the counter medications. I have tons of energy, healthy, fit, and have maintained a size 4 dress size, and will never go back to eating bad things.

I have been a vegan for the last five years and stay away from all processed foods. Eliminating dairy, fast food, gluten, sugar, and meats have made a big impact on my life and health, as well as eliminating foods with additives and preservatives. I eat only organic and cook everything at home. I very seldom dine out as cannot trust what they put in foods. Alcohol is loaded with sulfites (which is a big thing I am allergic to), so only drink water. If I eat one thing with preservatives, my heart will go into overdrive and does not slow down for at least twenty four hours or longer. She is correct about the belly fat. Give up the chemicals and you will see results. It is not worth the risk to your health.

On a side note: I am thrilled Panera Bread has taken the step recently with their cleaner journey mission; hope it will be an inspiration for others to follow, naming all NO, NO chemicals, additives, and preservatives in their foods; the ones which do not exist, and the ones which will be removed by 2016. Wow, think about it…if Panera has a list this long, can you imagine McDonalds or other fast food restaurants? Our children deserve optimum health and so do we!

Even if you do not have serious allergies, or experiencing current health issues, this book is for anyone wanting to learn more, and also a gift to others for optimum health and wellness. You may be on the fence about going vegetarian or vegan, have celiac disease, or maybe looking for a change, and this this book is an excellent place to begin. You can try new things without giving up great food and stay healthy.

Thank you, Vani Hari for your work, your dedication, and tenacity as you continue to empower others for a much needed change, and take steps to make the food industry accountable.

As readers continue on this journey, would recommend a few other books which I have enjoyed, in addition to this one:

Dying to Remember
Dying to Remember - Glen Apseloff

By Glen Aspeloff
ISBN: 9781477830154
Publisher: Thomas & Mercer
Publication Date: 6/2/2015
Format: Other
My Rating: 3 Stars

A special thank you to Amazon, Thomas & Mercer and NetGalley for an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

DYING TO REMEMBER, a medical mystery saga, by Glen Apseloff of one man's journey--a victim of food toxins, loss of memory, a family murdered, and a conspiracy--leaving a surgeon, trying to solve the pieces of his life.

As the book opens, Dr. Christopher Barnes is dreaming about an upcoming surgery, when he awakes with a weird feeling. He had moved out of his marriage home in Boston a week earlier into the Ritz. However, he realizes he is a patient at the moment, versus a surgeon.

He recalls his abdomen contracted in spasms, the violent sickness, from poisoning from mussels. He realizes his wife Elizabeth is not here but he recalls a woman, Cheryl, a dinner, a hotel. They had met a year earlier at a symposium. He had ordered escargot in garlic and butter sauce, and as an entrée, North Atlantic mussels in a white broth. He is thinking it will pass; however, it could be bacterial. However, soon thereafter they are headed to the hospital as he convulsed on the stretcher, and then he was not breathing, an ET tube, coma, and loss of memory.

In the meantime we hear from his wife, Elizabeth Barnes, an orthopedic surgeon, recalling an earlier very heated argument with her husband, Chris. Both she and her husband routinely received calls in the middle of the night. Now she is receiving a call from the hospital about her husband. She cancelled her surgeries for the day and took the first flight out to Toronto.

While she revisits the past, when she moved to the US after completing medical school in London and had become an American citizen only after marrying Chris. The pregnancy now threatened to tear them apart. When she had told him, he was outraged, as he could not control this. She decided she would have the baby with or without him. But she only hoped it was his.

She had never planned on having an affair, certainly not with a neighbor, Marshall, a teacher of creative writing at MIT. His wife had been killed by a reckless driver ten months before. She met as they were walking their dogs and shortly thereafter began writing her poems. After their fourth walk together the affair begun. She did not want to lose Chris. She could not get caught. Either man could be the father.

Now Chris is in a coma in Toronto, and what if he never recovered? The confession of the baby had left him furious, she could only imagine what he would say if he heard the baby may not be his.

Later back in Boston Elizabeth has returned from her trip, at home thinking about her future, when the doorbell rings. We learn she has been gunned down, murdered at her home along with the dog. At the time of the murder, Chris lay comatose in a Toronto hospital.

Flashing back to Chris, eleven days later he opens his eyes and they remove the respirator. He asks about his wife. When the nurse explains it is Dec 9, 1987. He is trying to remember what he was doing when he came to the hospital. A naked woman, Cheryl? Soon the physicians realize has short term memory impairment. The specialist informs him he has had a bout of food poisoning and the toxins have destroyed much of his medial temporal lobes, while they work to try and improve his memory. He learns of the murder.

Since this would be a high profile case, normally in such types of homicide investigations, the husband is always a suspect, or could have hired someone to kill her?

His memory comes and goes, very similar to Alzheimer’s and dementia. When Barnes leaves the hospital, he is instructed to write down his thoughts daily and post them throughout the house. When looking at this watch, he has to remember to put the note in his right pocket. He also has to write himself messages, as reminders --each minute he may forget something important. He will need to post them in every room on his house, as his mind slowly unravels.

To further complicate matters, Chris is determined to find out what happened to his wife. Despite the mounting of evidence against him, he could not believe he would harm Elizabeth. Then he receives a letter demanding $10,000 and to deposit it immediately. Could this be a gambling debt, or did he hire a hit man to kill her and no recollection of the events? He also finds a love letter written to Elizabeth with part of the pages missing. An affair, and if so with whom?

Next readers are introduced to an array of characters, Shirley a colleague of Elizabeth, his best friend, and Claire, an attorney, a lesbian, her college roommate, Claire’s current jealous lover/partner Darcie, a judge. All the while he has two detectives on his case daily and he cannot even remember what he did five minutes ago. What about his career, his surgeries?

He also finds a report on Elizabeth’s computer about a case she was working on involving a pharmaceutical company. Could any of this be connected and how? Also what about the letter, was she having an affair? What if the killer was after him next? He would need to start writing his notes in French, as these are his thoughts and what if someone broke in to gain this information?

He cannot remember anything from the previous day, and his doctors mention he cannot expect to retain new information for more than a few minutes. It is imperative to write it down immediately on a piece of paper, even he if recalls something from the day before. His notes and his diary entries are a reminder of his ability to form new memories, as his old ones have been severely damaged.

The good and the bad

Good: While the summary was enticing, a good set up, and of all people, toxins intrigue me as I suffer from MCS (multiple chemical sensitives), with severe food allergies (even preservatives and additives), and medications, with adverse reactions, with anaphylaxis (very scary and life threatening) and equipped with an Epi-pen at all times. I also enjoyed the diary and the notes. Dying to Remember had all the ingredients for a good medical mystery thriller, right?

The negative. A lack of emotion, suspense, or intensity. It was almost robotic, like someone was telling a story; however, failed to add feelings and emotions. It was also very disjointed. So many loose ends left dangling. You arrive at the ending, to discover the identity of the killer; however, no mention of all the other characters, to tie up loose ends you spend an entire book reading about. Very strange. I experienced no emotional connection to any of the characters. Barnes' character could have been so much more. As a reader you do not experience his desperation, or fear (an opportunity for some riveting scenes). A shame, as really wanted to like this one.

If you want a real medical thriller, would highly recommend TRAUMA, by Daniel and Michael Palmer (5 stars).

Tox-Sick: Go From Toxic to Not Sick - Suzanne Somers
From Toxic to Not Sick
ISBN:  9780385347723
Publisher:  Crown Publishing 
Publication Date: 4/16/2015 
Format:  Hardcover 
My Rating:  5 Stars +  


A special thank you to Crown Publishing and NetGalley for an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

TOX-SICK: From Toxic to Not Sick by talented Suzanne Somers, is a "must read" for all women and men of any age, and especially parents in today’s toxic world--from foods, belly fat, chemicals, to the environment; deadly. I read a number of books on this subject, due to my serious MCS, and severe food allergies; this is one of the best- highly recommend!

Toxins are the invisible enemy. They have invaded our lives, our homes, our places of work. You cannot see them but they are there wreaking havoc on our health and environment. We are exposed to more than six thousand common everyday chemicals and each of them come with a list of symptoms. Toxins have many ways of interfering with the normal physiology of life. We are all overloaded, and we have reached a breaking point.

From big business, government, FDA, drug companies (deceit); our water, our air, our food and its packaging; creating serious illnesses such as cancer, heart disease, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, autoimmune diseases, thyroid issues, ADD, allergies, and the list goes on and on. Toxins can mimic and lead to all of these issues. These chemicals were not meant to be processed by the human body. "95% of cancer is caused by diet and the environment."

The purpose of this book is to unravel the mystery illnesses in your body and offer you the recipe for health, for change. We have to take a stand, and take control of our health. I am a firm believer, and is reiterated in in TOX-SICK. It is up to each of us, to control the amount of our individual toxic exposure. To live and thrive, we need to truly think about every product we use and every bite of food we take. (I do). No-drug solutions do exist. (I am living proof). Learning to detox your body is key to a better life to effectively fight and reverse the effects of this phenomenon. You have to rid your body of these toxins, and replace with nutrients to heal.

In addition to being a talented actress, advocate, and a successful business woman, Suzanne has always been my “go to” author for years, when it comes to health, fitness and wellness. I admire her passion, drive, and intelligence, in regards to healthy living. I am in total agreement – TAKE CONTROL OF YOUR HEALTH by the choices you make regarding your diet and your lifestyle.

I am very obsessed with allergies, foods, toxins, wellness, and health facts. Having read ALL her books, she is my hero, as I devour each and every one of them. For the last fifteen years, I have been impassioned about learning how foods, medications, and our environment contributes to health; from toxins, allergies, to hormones. I appreciate how Somers incorporates and works with a list of highly trained medical professionals, and offers readers a wealth of information; nicely packaged, very informative, researched, useful examples, and summarizes each chapter with a wrap up. I particularly enjoyed the cancer parts, since my mom has colon cancer which has metastasized to the liver and the abdominal area, and in particular steps to take to rid the liver of toxins when taking chemo, as well as the myths of cholesterol and low fat deceptions. (also proactive solutions).

From the low-fat food movement, processed, sugar filled foods, plastics, chemicals, pesticides, toxic mold, overuse of pills, GMOs and EMFs, TOX-SICK addresses it all, and most of these we interact with daily (a scary thought).

Being in the same age range and growing up in the same generation, as Suzanne--I have experienced this toxic thing from childhood, teens, marriage, and child bearing, divorce to menopause. I am a stickler for researching medical information regarding my health, and have actually taken her bookshighlighting page after page and bookmarking to the doctors and specialists for my visits to discuss (thanks), among other information from online research. 

Knowledge is power. Just because the doctor says something, does not mean you do it. This is my pet peeve with friends and family. It is your body. Start with your food and what goes in to you body -pay attention.

Thank you Suzanne, for this insightful book. Many folks have begun taking a stand against our toxic world, with blogs, recipes, and education. I bookmarked so many pages in this book; some valuable information to refer to, time and time again. This is not a once read book.

On a side note: I am thrilled Panera Bread has taken the step recently with their cleaner journey mission; hope it will be an inspiration for others to follow, naming all NO, NO chemicals, additives, and preservatives in their foods; the ones which do not exist, and the ones which will be removed by 2016. Wow, think about it…if Panera has a list this long, can you imagine McDonalds or other fast food restaurants? Our children deserve optimum health and so do we!

We need more books like TOX-SICK to educate, create awareness, and help rid our toxic world of poisons, illnesses, and diseases. I highly recommend this book and all Suzanne’s books!   Read, study, and act now, as you can reverse the damage in your body by taking charge of your personal health and the choices you make from this moment on relative to diet and lifestyle. I urge readers to also visit ForeverHealth.com which offers a wealth of information.

In addition to Susan's books, if you enjoy this journey, would also recommend two additional books, both excellent references for a vegan and allergy-free healthy cooking lifestyle.
