On New Year’s Day, my mom called to tell me that she had something life changing to show me. I was hungover from New Year’s Eve festivities the night before and glued to the couch. But since she sounded so convincing I agreed to let her come over as long as she agreed to let me stay on the couch without entertaining her or moving whatsoever.

When she arrived, she had the energy of a bee whizzing about; all of the movement nearly made me vomit. Then she settled in to show me a video called the American Parasite made by a (probiotic) nutritional supplement company. Without going into too much detail, it was an informational video that talked about the harmful effects of sugar, how it leads to overgrowth of candid in the body and claims that it is the fault of the government that so many people are having issues with this “bacterial” imbalance due to the creation of aspartame and other “fat free” and processed food ingredients by companies funded and supported by them (the government) even after shocking reports of cancer in lab rats, etc. Sigh.
