We are extremely concerned about the increasing quantity of food contaminants and the declining quality of our food supply. We are equally worried about studies that document that 90% of all Americans test positive for GMOs (genetically modified organisms) and test positive for BPA (bisphenol A) in their blood streams. Both of these contaminants may play a role in the increasing rates of medical illnesses (like cancer) and increasing rates of psychiatric illnesses. Here is an article that offers one explanation of how you might be ingesting BPA without your awareness.
Losing Weight Without Dieting
We are opposed to all diets. Instead, we recommend a shift in your lifelong eating style to decreased meat and dairy products (because they carry so many contaminants) to increased vegetables, fruits, and nuts. We are also opposed to counting calories, preferring to direct our focus toward healthy, nutritious foods and eating those foods until you are 80% full. However, for those people who want a new way to lose weight, try reading this article for some simple life style changes that will lead to weight loss. And for those calorie watchers, here is an article of some of the upcoming FDA changes. Take control of your health and your life. That is your best chance for good health and longevity.
Retirement and Social Security
We need to be honest. The Boomer Survivor Kit (and this Boomer Health Institute) is focused primarily on your health, your relationships, and your life — and not focused on your finances. We are not financial wizards. We believe that there are things far more meaningful in life that the pursuit of money, as shown in this article. However, we all realize the necessity of making correct financial plans. Therefore, here is one article that addresses mistakes that can be made when filing for social security. Here is another article that highlights how people overlook refunds that they are due from taxes. Lastly, there is one article on the best places to retire in the United States (although people should not forget the possibilities of living overseas in a foreign country where the American dollar is so much stronger and the taxes are so much smaller).
