This past weekend, I was on A Healthy You & Carol Alt on Fox News Channel. On last month’s show, Carol Alt and I discussed the health risks of GMOs and the lack of GMO-labeling in U.S.
In this most recent show, we talked about organic food. Two of the main topics that we covered were the superior nutrition that organic provides, and the difference between hybridized food (allowed in organic food) and genetically-engineered food (not allowed in organic). Read more »
Carol Alt, a supermodel who has been on over 700 magazine covers and is an author of several raw food books, hosts an amazing show dedicated to health. Much to my surprise, it seems that Fox has given her absolute free rein in terms of content for her show.

Don’t think for one second that these individuals are casual coupon collectors. After all, there is a reason why TLC calls it Extreme Couponing.
