Eat Smart -- Read Labels

There is a saying...."tell me what you eat, and I shall tell you what you are".
In grocery stores today, we can see some suspiciously unhealthy-sounding ingredients like phyglycerolesters, artificial flavors etc..Apparently, the word "healthy" is subject to a variety of interpretations. Our health is more precious than gold, and losing it can greatly limit our ability to live life to its fullest and make a difference in the lives of others.

Just as the quality of our life is built upon the foundation of good health, the quality of our health is built upon the kinds of foods we feed our bodies. Do your part to maintain good health. Dont be fooled by media hype or marketing devices with claims like--"iron-fortified or vitamin A enriched" and many more claims which in fact has no vitamins at all but high sodium and preservatives. These can be categorized as "junk-foods". Take time to notice what you are putting into your body.
