Thank you so much for stopping by! Time appears to be flying by way too fast and I'm looking to do something exciting with the rest of my life. I'll be starting an online fitness business called "GoBeDo" sometime this year. Be sure and check in. You'll learn about High Interval Training, Yoga, Body weight exercise, Spartan races, Functional training and whole lot more. Real $hit, for Old Timers like me. Why? We only have one shot at a grandiose and fulfilling life. Let's get busy creating one. Remember, it's the start that stops most people. The last thing I want to take to my grave is "regret!"
Peace/Love and Hugs!

Whole Foods? Mr. Mackey and fake Organics...

Marco here. I love Whole Foods, but! Did you know that much of what Whole Foods sells as organic is imported from China.  China!? Frozen spinach, sugar snap peas, California Blend (carrots, cauliflower and broccoli) and much more, all selling under the Whole Foods 365 Organic label, come from China, but you have to flip the package over and read the small print to find this out. Well now...

The word organic is supposed to assure no use of overly harmful pesticides and environmentally friendly growing conditions, at least in the U.S. But what does that word mean in China? Food grown as organic in the U.S. must be approved by the USDA before it can be labeled organic, but food from China does not have this level of supervision.

The USDA does not inspect food from China. Private inspectors are certified to do that. Whole Foods uses a company called Quality Assurance International (QAI) to certify some products, but QAI confirmed to the ABC reporters that it has not certified any food from China. Yet the QAI seal along with the USDA seal and the words Product of China appear together on produce sold at Whole Foods. There is no way to know if any rules governing the labeling of the food were followed. Read on Whole Food shoppers... Read on!

The Truth will set you Free!
