Lester A. Mitscher of the University of Kansas presented new data demonstrating that at least three of green tea’s catechins outperform a number of common natural antioxidants. In one test, for instance, the catechins proved 100 times more powerful than vitamin C in halting oxidative damage to DNA and 25 times more powerful than vitamin E. Their oxidation-quenching activity also surpassed that of the resveratrol in grapes and wine.

Being in powder form I can make as much or as little as I need for the week and I especially love being able to travel with it. That means I can have cereal with our free hotel breakfasts.
Research has shown that the epidemic of hardening of the arteries, which leads to more deaths annually than cancer, is directly attributable to homogenized milk. This research was done by Dr. Kurt A. Oster and his 20 years of research is documented in the book called, "Homogenized."
Nutritionists have reported that up to 70% of the world's population may be lactose-intolerant to some degree. Lactose is the sugar found in milk. These people must avoid lactose-containing foods, such as milk, yogurt and whey products. Casein, a milk by-product, is also very allergenic.

Buying local food keeps your dollars circulating in your community. Getting to know the farmers who grow your food builds relationships based on understanding and trust, the foundation of strong communities.
There's never been a more critical time to support endangered family farms. With each local food purchase, you ensure that more of your money spent on food goes to the farmer.
Knowing where your food comes from and how it is grown or raised enables you to choose safe food from farmers who avoid or reduce their use of chemicals, pesticides, hormones, antibiotics, or genetically modified seed in their operations. Buy food from local farmers you trust.
Local food doesn't have to travel far so it's better for the environment. This reduces carbon dioxide emissions and packing materials. Buying local food also helps to make farming more profitable and selling farmland for development less attractive.
When you buy local food, you vote with your food dollar. This ensures that family farms in your community will continue to thrive and that healthy, flavorful, plentiful food will be available for future generations.

It's less expensive and I use the essential oils for countertop spray to avoid chemicals also. Essential oils are very antimicrobial.
Here's one of the recipes I've used for the mouthwash. I take an empty 8 ounce bottle with a flip top lid (mine is from Frozen Lemon Juice). I add 6 ounces of purified water, 2 teaspoons of glycerin (optional for sweetness), and for essential oils for healthy gums, I used 7 drops Rosemary Essential Oil, 7 drops Thyme Oil and 7 drops of Peppermint Oil. You can find the glycerin at a drugstore. In our area it was one of the family-owned ones.
