This video was sent to me by Living Legacy Member Faith
Kinchen. The film documents a brief history of world food
production and exposes the disturbing truth behind engineered foods
that have quietly filled U.S. grocery store shelves for the past
decade. Many of us are so uninformed and put ourselves at risk by
being so trusting or just unconcerned about what we consume.
Health Care in America is a controversial subject these days. What
are your thoughts on our current situation and how it is being (or
not being) addressed? See video of the President's address to
congress or read his entire plan. You must have an opinion about
this crucial matter...let us know what you are thinking. Post your

TAKING BACK CONTROL /Obesity
We all have something to important to live
for in our lives. Please do not let obesity take control of
your life. There is not a day that goes by in which I am asked how
can I take the pounds off. My first reply is the dedication and
motivation must equal the desire to take it off. Without these two
important traits, it is merely talk. All over the big screen you
will find TV programs dedicated to fitness, the latest fad diet and
the latest diet pill. My question is will you take a shortcut and
risk adverse side effects to your health? For some the answer is
yes. Do not be fooled by gimmicks. Take the time to learn about
healthy eating and exercise. It will make you feel and look better.
I consider myself a fitness educator more than a personal trainer.
It is amazing to help someone reach their fitness goals. My
recommended book for those wishing to reach their fitness goal is,
“The Abs Diet”. It can be purchased at any of the big book
retailers. It is simple to read and follow. He will teach you about
12 simple yet powerful foods. For simple yet effective exercise
join one of your reputable local health clubs and take their free
group exercise classes. These are very motivating and if done
consistently will yield phenomenal results. One of my favorites is
the Spinning classes. It is important to me as an African American
to take control of my health while I am young before the pills set
the tone for my every move. Do you want to take control? Do you
want to love longer? If so give my recommendations a try and you
will not be disappointed.

AFRICAN-AMERICANS ASK FEWER
less likely to raise concerns and ask questions of their
physicians, suggests a U.S. study.
Study leader Dr. Howard S. Gordon, of the Michael E. DeBakey
Veterans Affairs Medical Center and the Baylor College of Medicine,
in Houston, Texas, investigated how race influenced doctor-patient
communication. The investigators reviewed, transcribed and analyzed
audiotapes from 137 separate doctor-patient consultations involving
lung cancer and suspicious lung lesions.
The study, published in Tuesday's Cancer, found that the degree of
patient engagement with the physician impacted the frequency of
information provided by physicians but race did not, despite the
finding that African-Americans received less information. While
there was no difference in the amount of information when that
information was initiated by the physician, there were differences
in the amount of physician information provided when prompted by
African-Americans were less likely than Caucasians to ask questions
or raise concerns to their physicians and to bring a friend or
family member to the appointment. However, when doctors and
patients were of the same race, any disparity in physician
information provided disappeared, according to Gordon.

Milk Does Not Do a Body Good?
We have known since the early 1930’s,
that in order for the body to function properly and to maintain
optimum health, the general pH of the human system must be
Mucous is an allergic reaction to foods which are not natural to
our bodies and too much of it, leads to various diseases. Milk,
contrary to popular belief, is not good for us. Even if free of
Bovine Growth Hormones, antibiotics and labeled as "Organic" , it
is acidic and mucous forming. If getting enough calcium is a
concern, there are healthy alternatives.
