What do we mean by diet roller coaster and how do we get off of it?
Have you ever forced your weight down, then have it creep back up, force your weight down again, then watch it creep back up?...
Editor's Note from Neda Smith: It seems like every time you turn around there is a new diet. And your friend or family member is trying it out, thinking this just might be the diet to help them lose the unwanted weight. But if there was a way to get off of the roller coaster ride? What if there was a way to keep you nourished and balanced without deprivation? Katharine Pike is introducing us nourishment through our 5 senses.

You tell stories. You believe them.
They are just stories you have created, and will continue to create, unless you become "aware" (conscious) or awakened...
Editor´s Note from David Arenson: For too long the traditional channels of communication have made us think and feel small. This has served their motive to control us and keep us subservient. So long as you believe yourself small, you seek their product to improve your life. Now time's are changing. We are embarking on a new age.
This is our time. Our time to choose. Our time to flourish. Our time to take responsibility for our lives and our beloved planet.
2012 has been an intense. I would like to thank all our faithful readers personally for all their attention and support. I am looking forward to engaging with you more in 2013! Travel safely...

The scientific community and GMWatch have since raised concerns over the use of GM crops as a possible danger to health and the environment. New data from a study carried out by Dr. Charles Benbrook shows that GM crops do not reduce the quantity of pesticides used in their production over time, and crops now considered herbicide-tolerant include corn (Bt corn varieties), soy, and cotton (Bt cotton varities)...
