Healthy Cells, Healthy Immune System, Healthy Body

Our immune system was designed specifically to heal our bodies and keep them healthy. So why are so many failing these days?

There are many factors that cause our immune systems to function poorly - diet, lack of exercise, too much stress and how we handle it, pollutants and contaminants in the air and water, toxins in our food supply, body care and cleaning products among many other factors. But taking our health seriously doesn't have to be burdensome and confusing.

I don't know anyone who wants to be sick or die of disease but sadly that's what is happening to so many people. Death is a sure thing, but disease doesn't have to be.

If you're interested in strengthening your immune system allowing it to do its job, which is to heal your body, then go to Amazing Molecules . Find out how healthy cells make for a healthy body and then contact me!

Cantelope Recall - CDC advises not to eat cantelope from Chamberlain Farms

On August 22, 2012, the FDA announced a recall of cantelopes by Chamberlain Farms Produce, Inc., Owensville Indiana.

If you have cantelope at your house, be sure check its origin.  The CDC advises not to eat any cantelope from Chamberlain Farms and to throw it away (or take it back to the store and get your money back).      On August 22, 2012, Chamberlain Farms announced they believe their cantelope is the source of a miltistate outbreak of Salmonella Typhimurium infection.  The CDC has reported this outbreak and advises not to eat your cantelope.

The following states have been affected.  The number next to each state indicates the amount of people who have fallen ill, they believe, from the affected cantelope:  Alabama (13), Arkansas (3), California (2), Georgia (3), Illinois (21), Indiana (18), Iowa (7), Kentucky (56), Massachusetts (2), Michigan (6), Minnesota (4), Mississippi (5), Missouri (12), New Jersey (2), North Carolina (3), Ohio (4), Pennsylvania (2), South Carolina (3), Tennessee (6), Texas (2), and Wisconsin (4).

So far and prayerfully no more, out of the 178 ill people, 62 two of them have been hospitalized. In Kentucky there were two deaths reported.

It's always best to play it safe so use gloves when removing the cantelope and clean up any areas which it may have touched, especially in the fridge, on the counter top and even in your sink.
