Where do parents start? There is so much information, so many experts and each seem to have a different opinion. No wonder parents are confused!
Vehicles operating on eco-friendly energy were long ago said to be the future of transport. However, although principal technological solutions in using chemical energy alternatives for powering motors have existed for quite some time, their implementation is slow and that future announced more than a century ago seems to be too shy to present itself in full scale, at least for the time being.
I am terrified to write this however I feel very strongly compelled to do so.
A dear friend of mine shared with me some valuable wisdom that has made me stop and think. This wisdom has jolted me and I now feel compelled to totally lay all my cards on the table, in the full knowledge that I may lose readers and respect as a result.

Without the optimal level of nutrients that were available in our foods 100 – 200 years ago, we are not receiving enough nutrition to maintain health. You can learn more about this on my blog post here.

Upon closer inspection though, I am very sorry to say that it certainly doesn't appear that white vinegar is quite what we thought it was in terms of being green.
My blood hound researchers nose was once again tweaked recently. This time it was in relation to silicone products.
I used to take everything I was told at face value. After years of being mislead and it affecting my health and sanity, I now like to check everything myself - against credible sources like scientific reports, studies, clinical trials and production processes.
When I started to check out silicone, I wasn't at all happy with what I learnt.
