You know those little Cadbury eggs you get in your Easter basket? They’re so tasty! They are from England and here in England, Cadbury eggs are sold year round. It’s fantastic! Brits can all agree that there is no chocolate but Cadbury chocolate.

There’s no denying the rising costs of health care in our nation. Health spending has been rising steadily for several years. Americans spend nearly 20% of their income on healthcare costs, while on average spending 10% of their income on food. This disparity affects the health of our nation and must be acknowledged and addressed.

What are antioxidants anyway? Most people understand that they’re beneficial to health, but may be unsure of what they are or how they work! Our cells need oxygen to perform vital tasks, such as transferring energy stored in food, or for powering our muscles. When our cells use energy, they produce a by-product of organic molecules known as free-radicals.  Unfortunately, these free radicals are damaging to our bodies. They can lead to aging, tissue damage, cancer, heart disease, diabetes, and other diseases. This is where antioxidants come in!

Why should people buy organic? For a start, non-organic fruits and vegetables are covered in dangerous and toxic pesticides. These deadly chemicals have been shown to cause cancer and central nervous system damage. Not only do non-organic fruits and vegetables affect our health, but they also can harm wildlife that live in the area that they are being grown. The pesticides get into our drinking water, harming both us and the animals that drink it.
