Reading and understanding food labels in today’s day and age is so important, especially when dealing with animals as food companies often put low quality and damaging products in their pet foods. By learning how to read a label, you can learn a great deal of information about the food you are feeding your pets. You can even learn how to compare one food to another and choose the one best suited for your cat.
You might think using a Brita water filter is helping improve your water quality, but new test results show that Brita actually adds to the amount of heavy metals in the water. Find out which water filters are the best at the link below.

“A research team from the Los Angeles Biomedical Research Institute has released the results of their work in the journal, Metabolomics, revealing how an active component of green tea disrupts the metabolism of cancer cells in pancreatic cancer and offers an explanation for its effect on reducing risk of cancer and slowing its progression.”

Any of them could form a sound basis for your cat’s diet, or you could do as I suggest, and rotate brands and formulas. Several of these foods contain brown rice or other grains. I prefer a grain-free diet for my own cats because of their ages and health issues. Younger cats in good health could likely eat such foods on occasion, but rotating to non-grain varieties would still be advised. Also, many of the foods have other high carbohydrate ingredients, such as sweet potatoes or pumpkin. While there are nutritional reasons to add these ingredients, they may not be advisable for diabetic cats.”

This aromatic green herb, which is popular in Mexican cuisine, is bursting with vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and phytonutrients. It is also a proven antiseptic, antifungal and anti-inflammatory, and long-term consumption of it has been known to treat digestive disorders, fatigue, heart disease and autoimmune conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis. Cilantro is, in short, far more than just a flavorsome garnish.
However, cilantro possesses another health benefit of which most people are unaware: it is effective at chelating numerous heavy metals from the body. This is a huge plus in a world in which a growing number of foods and dietary supplements are contaminated, resulting in widespread heavy metal toxicity.”
