All LAKE food colorings such as Red 40 are aluminum based and generally believed to be toxic.
And as we are told to avoid healthy butter from NON-GMO cows, drink no fat milk, and eat more fruit, how do the Beltway Pundits think you are going to avoid obesity or keep bones strong or even avoid lung problems from rising pollution (like DC rates).

And then there is that sodium thing, carried over from the 1950s when salt became very cooked and very commercialized. Consider too that probably the most read and most controversial post on Natural Health News is the discussion of pink salt, its amazing to me that people do not stop to think that this fad salt in 94% - 97% sodium.
Our Choice, farmed Celtic salt, is just healthier because it contains 17% less sodium, and clearly less toxic heavy metals that are not necessary for health. Why not try celery or other savory herbs as a salt option too.
You can be a lemming and be glued to TV blogs that claim to be from a 'health expert' only to be back by unidentified Taiwanese sources, or stay tuned to a real expert at the first, original Natural Health News, to get the facts.
Have you thought about eating LOCAL and eating REAL FOOD today?
