This poster clearly delineates the companies who actually support organic agriculture, and ethical agriculture, from the companies who are only interested in making a profit. It's really shameful!

Is our desire to be as productive and efficient as possible driving unemployment? Is it time to move to a shorter workweek so the ever-increasing number of people in the workforce can all have jobs?

Even if you are an active, outdoor-type of person, you may not be getting enough vitamin D. The only way to be certain is by getting a 25-hydroxyvitamin D test, but in the mean time, most people should be taking 2000 IU a day.

Summer's coming and a big issue is whether eating local is actually good for the environment. It is a resounding 'yes' if you look at factors beyond just greenhouse gas emissions (and even when you take a closer look at those).
Eating local food is not only more environmental, it is more ethical. Thinking about the choices you are making is the best way to end up making the right one.

A new, comprehensive article all about protein, including some very interesting information about what proteins are "complete" (and what complete even means!)

New article on the silent dangers of visceral fat, aka "belly fat". The roles diet, exercise, and stress play in the formation and reduction of belly fat are also addressed!

Yet another study suggesting that 'grazing' actually does NOT improve your metabolism, and may negatively impact your health in other ways.
Restricting eating hours didn't cut calorie intake, yet the animals gained less weight

Our body has well-designed systems in place to detoxify the myriad of foreign compounds we encounter, but the level of exposure has increased so much today that it's possible your body's systems have begun to be bogged down. Interestingly, there are a number of well-researched phytochemicals which can dramatically increase our body's ability to detoxify. This article talks about a number of compounds which aid in detoxification.

New PEERtrainer article on possible problems associated with the use of Splenda and other artificial sweeteners. Also, a look at the metabolism of simple sugars and which sweeteners, such as agave nectar or brown rice syrup, to choose or avoid based off this.
