Unlike traditional chewing gum, there are no artificial flavors, sweeteners, colors or preservatives in GLEE Gum, only natural non-GMO ingredients, like red beet for color, Fair Trade cane sugar and brown rice syrup for sweetening, and natural flavors in a gum base made using authentic  chicle, a rainforest tree sap that is sustainably harvested. Best of all, their online store offers a wide array of natural chewing gums in a variety of flavors beyond  pink bubblegum, including peppermint, tangerine, and spearmint, along with an assortment of varieties to choose from, including bubblegum pops, mini-boxes, pouches and even a make-your-own bubblegum kit.  GLEE Gum proves that good things come in the smallest of packages!

Before you pack another school lunch or prepare the family’s menu for the next week, you should read Dr. Renee Joy Dufault’s riveting examination about the toxic metals and other contaminants invading our food supply that the FDA has failed to warn the public about.

“Unsafe At Any Meal” : What the FDA Does Not Want You To Know About the Foods You Eat” ( http://www.squareonepublishers.com) explains the close correlation between disease and dietary choices , providing credible proof about her accusations, along with positive recommendations on how to create a safe food environment at home and especially for growing children.  This book goes a long way in explaining why allergies and other disorders have risen dramatically in the past few decades, thanks to the FDA’s silence about toxic residues and ingredients being allowed into our food supply.

The use of marijuana, both for medical and recreational purposes,  is one of the leading news topics these days, but unfortunately most people don’t want to be confused with the facts, as the old saying goes.  We found the best guidebook regarding its use for medical purposes in “Healing with Medical Marijuana: Getting Beyond the Smoke and Mirrors” by Dr. Mark Sircus (www.squareonepublishers.com). Sircus has researched the topic thoughtfully and passionately, backed up with statistics as well as scientific evidence.

If you are seeking straight talk and truth that goes beyond much of today’s emotional hype regarding marijuana’s efficacy in healing, this book offers a wealth of evidence that this natural plant is among the most amazing health resources of the 21st century. It wasn’t until big pharma and other business interests in the 1930s came along to discredit it for their own financial gains. If you suffer from chronic pain or disease and want a credible alternative to pharmaceutical solutions, you owe it yourself to get the facts from this insightful guide on how to use marijuana for healing and pain relief.
