The Choice Between White or Brown Bread

Retail sales for white bread have dropped across the country in the past year by approximately 1 percent.

This fall in consumption of refined white bread has been triggered by reports in the media and articles in newspaper and magazines suggesting that consuming high-fibre wholemeal bread is a much healthier option.

Nowadays, customers walking through the bread section of a supermarket will see them grabbing a loaf of brown or seeded wholemeal bread in replacement of the white loaf. Customers are becoming more concerned with their health and the trend is to eat healthy and develop a healthier diet.

Does Investing In Beauty Yield Good or Bad Returns?

Does Investing In Beauty Yield Good or Bad Returns?

Does Investing In Beauty Yield Good or Bad Returns?

Properties, stocks, antiques and collectables are all great investment vehicles for yielding good financial returns.

Similarly, investing in your beauty can yield returns which can lead to so many benefits to your life.

The reality is, we live in a superficial society. We put so much significance to physical beauty and it permeates our culture. Humans respond favorably to pretty and beautiful things.

This society-bias unfairly shapes our opinions of people we barely know, and unfairly discriminates those which are unattractive (especially girls).

You can say  “it’s what’s inside that counts”. TRUE, Looks can only go so far in life, and a killer personality and a clever mind is mighty attractive.

But on the flip side, ” would most guys  go up to girls thinking, man, I’ll bet she has good morals and a great personality.”

Beauty isn’t everything, but it helps with getting you further in life, and makes the path a little bit smoother.

Meet Bobby, the Green Organics pet dog.

Bobby was a homeless dog that came knocking on our door on a cold rainy afternoon in year 2000. Drenched in water, Bobby was invited into our home for a warm bath and some tasty food.

He was then taken to the nearest RSPCA shelter for his owner to come claim him.

A week passed by but there was still no response. Time was ticking! Bobby needed a new home, or he was going to be put down.

We decided to invite this little treasure into our Green Organics family. Bobby is now one of the longest serving members of the Green Organics team and will be celebrating his 11th birthday on the 5th of May this year. He has brought so much joy and happiness into our lives.

RSPCA has done tremendous work for neglected animals. Support to raise funds for the RSPCA by participating in this years Million Paws Walk. Register today at http://www.rspca.org.au

Breast Cancer is NOT a Death Sentence

Breast Cancer is NOT a Death Sentence

Breast Cancer is NOT a Death Sentence

Breast cancer is the most common cancer and cancer related deaths among females in Australia. 

Breast cancer generally affects women after the age of 40 with 1  in 11 women being diagnosed before the age of 75. Research and medical intervention have come along way and survival rates are better than ever before. 

With the advances in today’s medical world, breast cancer is no longer a death sentence. Successful treatment is quite high, but early diagnosis is necessary.

Early diagnosis has been a big key at stabilising the mortality rates. Current advice is that women should ‘get to know their breasts’ and find out what’s ‘normal’ for them, rather than checking breasts in a regimented and prescriptive fashion.
