Feb 22nd 2011 9:44AM I can't believe this article does not mention the REAL cons of soy!!! How about the problems it causes in the urogenital system? Holy cow! That info has been succesfully surpressed for years as soy has been pushed on us for a couple decades now. For young boys--problems with development of genitals. For girls--severe menstrual problems. This is just a simplified example. Look it up, folks--do not overindulge in soy!! It is NOT good! (And forget about that "well, in Asia..." argument. Their soy products are a different type of soy, also, they are not eating it in huge quantities.
Jan 24th 2011 9:10PM That would certainly work to exfoliate as the baking soda is abrasive. However, I would be careful because in the long run you are damaging your skin cells. Don't rub too hard because even with the tea tree oil you could end up doing more harm than good. You need lots of moisturizer--baking soda will have a drying effect.
Jan 24th 2011 9:06PM Nothing is better than Susan Ciminelli products. I have tried many things, expensive and inexpensive. If you can afford a splurge, treat yourself to some super hydrating lotion. Want super silky skin? MARINE LOTION!!! Incredible!
Jan 6th 2011 10:12PM Back in the '70s and early'80s, I never wore my seatbelt and neither did anyone I know. Then, it became the law in 1986 just as I was learning to drive. (This was in New York State). We were required to wear our seatbelt in Driver's Ed. (much to our shagrin). At first it felt so strange, but we were all surprised how after a few weeks it became a habit! I have never, ever even considered driving without my seatbelt on since then. It is absolutely automatic. I have to admit that if I am in the backseat (which is rare) then I don't buckle up, but after reading these posts, I will buckle up even in the back. I can't imagine driving or riding without the seatbelt-it would feel so strange. Definitely not worth the risk!
Dec 14th 2010 1:10PM The recipe calls for rotisserie chicken. (Already cooked at the store!) All you have to do is take the meat off the bone which shouldn't take more than 5 minutes. Also, you can just use salsa from a jar if you don't want to make your own. It really is an easy "throw it together" type of dish. I think people tend to forget that cooking (unlike baking) is really up to your own individual taste. You can change anything you like as long as the flavors are agreeable to you.
Dec 14th 2010 1:04PM Just leave it out. It will be fine without it! If you don't like it, there is no need to substitute anything for it.
Oct 8th 2010 10:39PM I can't even believe that this is an issue. Why are we reading about Bristol Palin's weight? If she were male, or if she were the daughter of a left-wing politician, this would not be news. This is just another attempt to smear the Palins.
Sep 16th 2010 5:54PM Did you read the article? It specifically mentions Poindexter's remake!! Look again!
Aug 31st 2010 9:41PM I agree with many things in this article and I appreciate the honesty! (I would even add Noxzema to my own personal cheap-loves list) But, I have to say I could never give up my Susan Ciminelli products. Sorry, but the marine lotion in particular is second to none!!!
Aug 21st 2010 8:56PM Soy is not all it has been cracked up to be. The government has been forcing it on us for a couple of decades now. There are a number of studies that show a link between soy and cancer. Soy contains hormonal substances. People like to fall back on the excuse "they have been consuming it in Asia for centuries....", well, they don't eat it in excess, and it is a different specie of soy. Many of the studies that tout the alleged benefits of soy are funded by agrobusinesses that have a vested interest in soy. That is not always a problem, but do some research and you shall see. Oh-one thing I forgot--other than cancers, also terrible birth defects like hypospadia in males. Additionally in females who are given soy milk in place of breast or formula (generally due to allergies) there is a high incidence of menstrual and general gynecologic problems later in life. It is the hormones, people!!
