Give Your Immune System A Boost

Dear Bob,

I have recently decided to start taking Vitamin D3 in the hopes of strengthening my immune system. I seem to get sick at least twice per year(I am right now), and I’m tired of relying on antibiotics to cure me. I was wondering how much D3 you would recommend I take per day (I bought 5000 UI capsules). I am 16 years old. I’m about 5 feet 11 inches tall, and I weigh roughly 145 pounds. Also, I was wondering if there is anything else you would recommend I take in order to improve my immune system and overall health.

Sincerely,

Aaron M

GMO Corn: Dead, Deadly

Monsanto maintains that its genetically modified (GMO) corn is nutritionally equivalent to non-GMO corn. But a 2012 report, titled “2012 Nutritional Analysis: Comparison of GMO Corn versus Non-GMO Corn,” tells a different story.

A copy of the report was sent to Moms Across America by the Canadian non-GMO seed company De Dell Seed Company. In fact, it turns out that GMO corn is essentially nutritionally dead and laced with toxins in amounts that exceed those the Environmental Protection Agency deems “safe.”
