800m run (at the end of each round)One of the most important reasons that we do the Whole Life Challenge every year is to give you the opportunity to be REALLY particular about the stuff that you put in your mouth to feed your body.

And when’s the last time you considered the things that are added to the food you eat that don’t even show up on the list of ingredients?
The following video (it’s old – from 2008) is a story about investigative reporters from Fox News that were fired for uncovering too much about Bovine Growth Hormone, manufactured by Monsanto, that is given to cows and shows up everywhere in the United States milk supply.

Educate yourself and then make smart choices. Maybe there is more to going off dairy than what simply meets the eye.
