4 Nutritional Powerhouses You're Already Eating

“even if organic produce had pesticides on them, there's not nearly as much as regular produce would have on it.”

User 42 on Apr 16, 2014 at 10:24:37

“Yes, there are usually less, but not necessarily so, and even at that, the amount of pesticides on regular foods are so low that it's just not really harmful. But eat what you want, if it brings happiness to your life.”

“This is NOT going to help min. wage workers become independent from the government.....cost of daycare for 1 kid at least $3 an hour- there is your money from your raise.....if you have you pay for insurance now, or food-- you're really screwed. all I see is corporations and poor people getting handouts....where's the raise for all other workers who make more than min. wage and haven't gotten a raise in a long time? don't they deserve something besides a loss of their buying power?”

Michigan 'Rape Insurance' Bill Passes Into Law

Michigan 'Rape Insurance' Bill Passes Into Law

“I'm on the fence about this......if I ever got raped, I wouldn't wait to see if I got pregnant from it- I would take the morning after pill--- its cheaper and less invasive to your body than an abortion- why wait and kill an innocent fetus? incest, unless it was ongoing, could do the same too....but if the incest was ongoing- I would certainly hope the victim would try to do something about it.”

peacekitten on Dec 13, 2013 at 10:32:46

“you don't seem to grasp that the same people who would require you to pay for "rape insurance" will also DENY you access to the "morning after" pill. what in god's name could you possibly be on the fence about? this law is so offensive and morally reprehensible it defies comprehension.   the people who supported it are insane.”

scotch43 on Dec 13, 2013 at 09:29:16

“so you think that 12 to 18 year old incest/rape victims should think ahead..and actually be able to do something about the situation they're in.....really ...you're not on the fence about this ....you fully support it....and others might state how many abortions are actually performed on 12 to 18 yr olds due to incest/rape....in my opinion....one is one too many ....you think you have everything figured out and then karma comes and bites you on the foot...I W**H....”

“LIFE is rarely as simple & easy to manipulate as you've determined it will be for you. You are definently on the right path, but be aware: if your solutions were so simple & easy to do, everybody would do so... (and this article would have been unnecessary).”

Jane B Webb on Dec 13, 2013 at 08:48:56

“IT'S nice to know you have it all figured out ahead of time - saves a lot of worrying. Just 1 little thing to share : it is amazing how easy it is to say how you would do something before it happens to you. But .... things are usually so cut & dry in real life. What you think you would do in a given situation is almost always not given as an option in real life. Using the morning after pill is indeed what most women are encouraged to do - it's part of the post-rape actions when reported. But there are many MANY reasons why it (the pill) doesn't get taken. As for incest, you cannot possibly know how impossible it can be to get out of. ALL forms of abuse that happen within families are extremely difficult to extricate oneself from. How nice it would be to simply walk away. Most people can't do it that easily.”

“This country gives a lot of money away to the poor. food stamps, medicaid, nice tax refunds -which if you don't make much, and have kids, you get WAY WAY more back than you put in-
i don't like that they are spending so much on military and defense, but why is it we have to do everything for so many people because they haven't learned to help themselves?
no one is taking personal responsibility for themselves or their families anymore.”

“why are they going hungry? because lack of personal responsibility is going away. blaming everyone else for their problems. the elderly and disabled people, they are different, but the poor people- it is their fault too.
why do people always expect the government to make sure they get what they need?
if parents are allowing their kids to starve, that is wrong on the parents part too. they had the kids and they can't take care of them? if I needed money, I would sell something, I would do something about it, i just wouldn't sit there and expect the government to always be there for me.”

“apparently, people don't know how to make a big meal, and save it or freeze it for later. spend $5 making a big pot of chili and that could be 10 meals at the very least- 50 cents a meal.... there are lots of meals you can make a lot of and freeze, which will cost a lot less in the long run.”

“Absolutely right, Corie Lemmon! I think too many try to get by on the dollar menu...bad food with a soda pop and twice the price of nutritional food made at home.”

Pappa on Oct 25, 2013 at 20:46:52

“Truth be told, people could live off of 88 cent by buying rice, flour, and other inexpensive items. Or even chili. Yet, they would not be eating healthy, as they could not afford fruits and veggies. Yu must remember that the food stamp program was started and continued for the benefit of children.”

“Here here, there are all kinds of ways to economize. Too many have been forgotten by our overly consumptive society. Chili is one, spaghetti sauce in another, beef stew is a third, pot roast is a fourth, chicken soup is a fifth. All if properly managed can provide a nutritious meal for pennies a serving.”

“That only works if you have a lot of freezer space (like those fancy refrigerators where half of the interior space is devoted to freezing). Many poor people are still relying on clunky old-fashioned fridges that only have a small freezer above the refrigeration compartment.”
