Caught a tweet from blogger Shiva Rose the other day that alerted me to a post from Eat Local Grown that really makes me sad. :o(
It's titled, "The Truth About Almonds: Almost No One Knows This Dirty Secret."
In it, it basically states that almost all almonds in the US are fumigated with Propylene Oxide that could be a possible carcinogen (I mean, what else is new..) Even those almonds labeled "organic" have been heated to such a high temperature as to negate many of their life-benefitting properties.
Well, that's a bummer. So, now we are basically just eating almonds for the flavor?
Again, the government is out for big business and not for the health and wellness of its people. Tragic, no?
