“Bouch” “Mother” “Mushroom” All interesting nicknames. But lets call it what it is – a fungus. A flat patty of jelly fish-like substance that’s pretty gross looking I must admit. Disgusting really. But when mixed with a combination of (typically) black and green tea as well as some sugar this fungus feeds away producing some significant health benefiting byproducts and a sparkling, champagne-like effervescent beverage that tastes somewhat like apple cider results...

The low-fat trend finally appears to be on its way out. The notion that saturated fats are detrimental to our health is deeply embedded in our Zeitgeist—but shockingly, the opposite just might be true.

As a first time mother of an eight-and-a-half month old, I'd like to begin with a personal anecdote of how music has already had an influence on my child's life.
Since the day that we brought my son, Luke, home from the hospital, I have been playing music or singing to him (albeit, not well but he seems to like it!). I didn't think much about music having the ability to calm him down until one day I was driving down the freeway and he started to become very fussy and cry...

It has become a truism in our culture that we need to have high self-esteem in order to be happy and healthy. Psychologists have conducted thousands of studies touting the benefits of self-esteem.

"All natural." "Farm-fresh." "Cage-free." Thanks to phrases such as these, consumer confusion is common when it comes to understanding and buying food. The battle raging in California over the labeling of genetically modified foods illustrates just how much labels do indeed matter -- to consumers as well as to corporations...
Editor´s Note: Is organic food truly better for us? With current new studies revealing it doesn't matter to some, Kristin Wartman spells out why the term "organic" is becoming grayer by the day.
