I don’t know why the health classes in school don’t teach the kids that acne is not just a problem for teenagers. Even middle aged people still get pimples from time to time! And the constant changes in theory about whether or not chocolate and pizza and french fries cause acne or not are just plain annoying! Not very long ago I received a book about old home remedies and I was reading that one of the best acne products ever is plain and simple toothpaste! I couldn’t believe it at first, but I have used it several times with really good results. My advice in the future in regards to acne problems is to try toothpaste first – you already have it on hand, so why not give it a try? You might save yourself a ton of money and aggravation!

I was not really very surprised when I heard on the news recently that Taco Bell is being sued for having less beef in their beef tacos than is mandated by law. I’ve never really cared for their tacos, and I never really knew why but I certainly did feel that there was not very much meat in them to begin with. The texture just never felt right in my mouth! And I really prefer making my own tacos at home with the Old El Paso taco seasoning and my own burger.
I think it is amazing that one of the largest markets in the world is cookbooks. Another one is diet pills! What a conundrum, our love affair with food! We really do want to eat our cake and have it too! My sister is always talking to me about the newest fad diet pill that she is trying, and telling me that she thinks what is the best diet pill is the pill she is trying that month. Sometimes I worry about how vain she is becoming as she ages.
My favorite video of the week – a parody by Weird Al. This song reminds me of the many times my parents would cajole us kids to stop being so fussy about what was on our plate and just eat it! I think Weird Al is one of my heros! I hope you enjoy this video too!
It seems to me that the media nowadays is promoting anorexia. Everywhere I look there are commercials on television, or printed advertisements in the magazines and Internet websites about colon cleanse products that are touted as a way to lose weight. Well, if I recall correctly the shows that I’ve seen about the health issue of anorexia involves heavy use of laxatives. I don’t really think that there are many significant differences between the two, do you?
