Feeling in the PINK…Being in the KNOW
During the month of October it’s likely that you’ll see more pink ribbons than ever. We’re thrilled to see that awareness raised !!
Here at Marilu.com we’re all about health. This is NOT a celebrity diet. This is a way of life that will help you to avoid disease and enjoy good health so we encourage you to not only donate to worthwhile causes, such as breast cancer research, but to also learn all you can.
Learn about the charities to which you donate. Are you buying a product because a percentage of the proceeds will got to charity? Check the fine print to see if there is a cap on that donation. It’s possible that they’ve already given all they’re going to give and the charity would be helped more by writing them a check directly. If it’s an edible product read the ingredients. The first line of defense starts with YOU .
A plant based diet will protect you from cancer as well as heart disease, diabetes and a host of other diseases and conditions.
“While scientists are hard at work searching for specific breast cancer-fighting compounds, the safest approach is to apply what we already know: Diets that are highest in a variety of plant foods and stay away from heavy oils, meat, and dairy products, help prevent a great many diseases. The earlier in life we start, the better.”
