another reason to stay away from high fructose corn syrup

Informed consumers know that it is wise to avoid high fructose corn syrup—for many reasons. I just read about a startling new reason to stay away from that ingredient. This is especially important for young children.

Studies are being released posing a question about mercury appearing in HFCS. Shockingly, the FDA is dodging looking into it further. Please read the full story published today on Grist.

It seems worthy of an investigation, further testing, or some safety regulations, if you ask me.

Hi Mom Go Green!

I like to do something for increasing greenry around the place I live at.
Being a mother myself, I read your blog and liked your posts.

To support the 'Go Green' movement, I recently brought a electric bike from R Martin Bikes, and love the way it runs. Since my workplace is slightly far from my home I used to travel by a car, but now the enviornmentalist in me takes pride in using a zero pollution vehicle.

Nice to see other people sharing views to promote this cause. I'll be back to read more. Till then,
