Say NO to Tilapia

Fish MAY not always be good for you. Fish can be incredibly healthy or detrimental to our health, depending on where it’s sourced. There’s a world of difference between fish caught in the wild, and farm bred or farm-raised fish.

Why is Farm Raised Fish So Bad for You?
1. Causes Inflammation
Farm raised Tilapia has always been a popular source for fish because it’s widely available and also very inexpensive. Tilapia is the perfect factory fish; it happily eats pellets made largely of corn and soy to gain weight rapidly, easily converting a diet that resembles cheap chicken feed into low-cost seafood.Tilapia can increase the body’s inflammatory response, leading to serious health problems.

2. Contains Cancer Causing Pollutants
Farm bred fish may have at least 10 times the cancer causing pollutants compared to their wild counter parts. This is most likely be attributed to the feeds used on farm-raised fish. Did you know chicken feces is one of the main ingredients in farm fish feed.
3. Contains Antibiotics and Pesticides
Where do farm bred fish get their antibiotics? The crowded conditions of fish farms cause the fish to be more susceptible to disease. To keep them alive, farm owners give massive amounts of antibiotics to the fish to fend off disease. Farm bred fish are also treated with pesticides to combat sea lice. The pesticides used to treat these fish are so deadly that they have been found to kill wild salmon that are accidentally exposed to them.

4. Low Levels of Nutrients
Many of us consume fish, hoping to reap the omega-3 fatty acid benefits that come with it. However, did you know that the omega-3-acids found in farm raised fish are less usable to our bodies compared to wild bred fish, and they also have a lower protein content?

5. Contains Toxic Chemicals
Dibutylin levels (toxic chemical used in PVC plastics) is said to be 6 times higher in farm raised mussels compared to wild ones. Dibutylin is toxic and can impair immune system function while also contributing to inflammation.

Bottom line…make sure you are eating WILD and preferably Pacific cold water fish.

Boost Your Confidence Quotient

5 Steps to Boost your Confidence Quotient (CQ):

1. Walk 25% faster. Psychologists have proven that speeding up your stride improves attitude and raises confidence.
2. Speak up. Many people with natural ability and a keen perception stay too quiet. Take a dose of confidence by speaking-up.
3. Be a front seater. At your next team meeting, school performance or church, sit in the front row.
4. Make eye contact. It has been said that your eyes are the window into your soul. Make eye contact to communicate confidence and trustworthiness.
5. Smile. Try to feel defeated and smile at the same time. You can’t! Smiling produces chemical changes that lead to confidence and happiness.

If you are in the habit of comparing yourself to others, STOP!

When we do, we typically exaggerate the intelligence and talent of the other person and sell ourselves short.

The other person has the same fears and insecurities as you; the difference is they do it afraid.

Whatever you need to do, go ahead and do it afraid!

Trump, Carson and Vaccines

Trump feels there is a connection between vaccines and Autism, Rand Paul seems wishy-washy and Dr. Ben Carson claims there is no link between the two.

Could this be why? 


If there is “no link” then why has the U.S. Court of Federal Claims established a vaccine court where they pay millions of dollars a year to the families of vaccine-injured children?


Watch here as Director of the Center for Disease Control (CDC) confirms that vaccines cause “Autism-like symptoms.”


What’s the difference between Autism and Autism-like symptoms…same as the difference between stupidity and stupidity-like symptoms.

Wade through the lies and choose wisely people.
