You probably remember last year when the FDA found a majority of the herbal supplements at GNC, Walmart, Walgreens, and Target did not contain what they claimed. The lack of regulations in supplements and herbal products helps some retailers to sell the public supplements that contain cheap fillers like wheat, soy powder or worse.

Let's face it, the Standard American Diet (S.A.D.) is terrible. We're led to believe that unhealthy foods are healthy simply because of the overuse of trendy "diet fads" and clever marketing.

I want to help make things simple for you, my friend. One of our talented writers recently wrote a post, which inspired this week's Saturday Strategy. I want to show you 30 simple swaps to help you upgrade your plate and ultimately, upgrade your health!

You may already know some of these, while others may be new. I encourage you to give them a try and find the ones you like best. Get your friends and family involved and pick a day of the week to try a new recipe using a new "healthy swap" from this list. Then comment below and let me know which one you tried and how it turned out!

It's hard for me to pick a favorite from this list because they are all so good!

Is this the End of Diet Soda? Huge Study links Aspartame to Major Problems, Sales Drop...

Aspartame: The Bitter Truth Behind This Toxic Sweetener

As concerns about health epidemics plague the nation, demand and sales of diet soda have plunged as consumers try to make better choices. As we reported yesterday, aspartame (the main sweetener for diet soda) is one of the most dangerous ingredients used in our food supply, causing seizures and a host of other health issues.

In a new study done over ten years and sampling 60,000 women, it was shown that women who drink two or more diet drinks a day have much higher cardiovascular disease rates and are more likely to die from the disease.

30 percent more likely to have a heart problems...
In the largest study done of it's kind, The University of Iowa concluded:

Compared to women who never or only rarely consume diet drinks, those who consume two or more a day are 30 percent more likely to have a cardiovascular event [heart attack or stroke] and 50 percent more likely to die from related disease.

This is one of the largest studies on this topic, and our findings are consistent with some previous data, especially those linking diet drinks to the metabolic syndrome, says Dr. Ankur Vyas, the lead investigator of the study.

The association persisted even after researchers adjusted the data to account for demographic characteristics and other cardiovascular risk factors, including body mass index, smoking, hormone therapy use, physical activity, energy intake, salt intake, diabetes, hypertension, high cholesterol, and sugar-sweetened beverage intake.

On average, women who consumed two or more diet drinks a day were younger, more likely to be smokers, and had a higher prevalence of diabetes, high blood pressure, and higher body mass index.

Soda sales slipping...
Thankfully this study comes on the heels of reports of already slipping sales of diet soda, one of the largest aspartame markets.

According to Time Magazine:

One reason for the decline could be a growing awareness of the obesity epidemic in the US and growing health concerns surrounding sugar-sweetened beverages. According to Reuters, industry experts say the beverage industry is shrinking under the scrutiny. Even diet-branded drinks have suffered a loss of sales with concerns over artificial sweeteners.
Whatever the reason for the decline, this new study should only add fuel to the movement away from artificial sweeteners. There are plenty of natural sweeteners that people can choose that are much healthier than aspartame. Click here for a practical guide to natural sweeteners.

Another important note is that the overall sales of soda going down also means that less people are being exposed to (mostly GM) high fructose corn syrup which carries a whole host of health risks as well.

Pregnancy tip: If your spine and pelvis are misaligned during pregnancy, not only is this typically uncomfortable for mum, but often as a result our growing baby may be held in an awkward position within the womb, which impacts their ability to move around. It makes sense that births are much more straight forward when our baby can move down into a good position to keep labour progressing. Also, did you know an unborn baby's brain learns through movement? If they're not moving freely this may impact their development. This is why it's important to keep your spine healthy and your unborn bubba moving well during pregnancy. || So, have you had your regular chiropractic check-up?
