Carrots……….you want to read this! *)*

This is something I didn’t know! The small cocktail (baby) carrots you
buy in small plastic bags are made using the larger crooked or deformed
carrots which are put through a machine which cuts and shapes them into
cocktail carrots. Most people probably know this
already. What you may not know and should know is the following:

Once the carrots are cut and shaped into cocktail carrots they are
dipped in a solution of water and chlorine in order to preserve them
(this is the same chlorine used your pool) since they do not have their
skin or natural protective covering, they give them a
higher dose of chlorine.

You will notice that once you keep these carrots in your refrigerator
for a few da
ys, a white covering will form on the carrots, this is the
chlorine which resurfaces. At what cost do we put our health at risk to
have esthetically pleasing vegetables which are practically plastic?

We do hope that this information can be passed on to as many people as
possible in the hopes of informing them where these carrots come from
and how they are processed. Chlorine is a very well known carcinogen.

Please let us make this information available to as many people as
possible. If you care about your family and friends, pass it on.

Get plenty of rest.

OR ………..You can take the doctor’s approach to getting a flu shot……….
Think about it…
When you go for a shot,
what do they do first?
They Clean your arm with alcohol …
Why?
Because Alcohol KILLS GERMS.
So…….

I walk to the liquor store. (exercise)
I put lime in my Corona …(fruit)
Celery in my Bloody Mary (veggies)
Drink outdoors on the bar patio..(fresh air)
Tell jokes, laugh….(eliminate stress)
Then pass out. (rest)
The way I see it…

If you keep your alcohol levels up,
flu germs can’t get you!
