From gluten-free breads, pastas and pastries to gluten-free shampoos and lotions, […]

Have You Eaten Beaver Butt Lately? Odds are you have…

In the ongoing saga of the secret ingredients and hidden truths of our food industy, I have discovered a deep dark secret. It is called “Natural Flavoring.” What is natural flavoring?

Those fragrances however aren’t just annoying, they are actually toxic or intentionally obscuring the odor of more hazardous irritants and carcinogens.
