Plastic Alert For Parents

Thursday, December 29th, 2011

Plastic Alert For Manitou Springs Parents Hello new Rocky Mountain Region parents. Today’s Healthy Children’s blog focuses on BPA. Bisphenol A (BPA), the dangerous compound used in plastics manufacturing can now be detected everywhere in our environment: in our food, clothing, homes, offices, soil, water: you name it.

‘Since at least 1936 it has been known that BPA mimics estrogens, binding to the same receptors throughout the human body as natural female hormones.’1

What does this mean for our wonderful children? Numerous scientific studies suggest an increased risk of  several illness and neurological problems.

Infants are the most susceptible to even minute amounts of BPAs. Unfortunately, most infant formula containers and plastic bottles contain BPAs and other toxins.

What can parents do to reduce the risk of these chemicals finding their way into their child’s formula or baby food?


1) Do not heat plastic containers in the microwave.
2) Do not wash plastic containers in hot water.
3) Consider using glass bottles and containers.

These are simple steps that any parent or day-care provider can take.  Talk to your doctor and see if tossing your plastic bottles is a good prevention option.

The Beauty Of Passive Income With Xocai Nuggets

Welcome to my Colorado Springs Xocai Nuggets home based business blog. On this site I post information about direct sales opportunities for Denver entrepreneurs.

The goal of most home based business owners in Denver is to generate residual income. It is an exciting day for new business owners when they receive their first check. It doesn’t happen overnight, but eventually the small stream of checks turns into a river. As the amount of income increases, your work load does not increase proportionately. That’s the beauty of passive income.

This is a great opportunity for Colorado Springs folks just like you to earn a  supplemental income as independent Xocai Nuggets distributors in the Colorado Springs area. If it is time for you to partner with Xocai Nuggets, call me today!

Earn Residual Income In Denver

Welcome Denver home based business blog visitors! This site is for everyone in Denver who is researching home based business opportunities.

There are as many flavors of home based businesses as their are Denver entrepreneurs. In my Denver neighborhood there are hairdressers, accountants, personal trainers, real estate agents, and mobile caterers that keep their business expenses low by working from home.

I run a thriving XoBiotic Squares business from my home. One of the special characteristics of network marketing businesses is the ability to make passive income. Because I have built a large network of distributors, I have established several channels of residual income.

The members of my XoBiotic Squares sales team are also establishing their own streams of passive income. As you consider which type of home based business to start, keep the XoBiotic Squares ‘passive income factor’ in mind.

3 Ways To Cut children’s Sugar Intake In Colorado

3 Ways To Cut Your Kids' Sugar Intake In Manitou Springs

If your Colorado Springs children are like the most of the children I know, they love sweets. It seems like it takes a few years for children to appreciate flavors more sophisticated than Hubba Bubba and Fruity Pebbles. If children were in charge of the grocery list, most families would eat popsicles for breakfast and gummy bears for dinner.

If you are trying to wean your child (or yourself) off sugar, I suggest you reduce it in phases. Radical changes rarely succeed for any children.

Here are 3 ways to reduce the sugar in children diets.

1) Drink less soda: they are loaded with sugar and empty calories.
2) Use whole grains: complex carbs provide long-term energy. Brown rice, whole wheat bread, and whole-grain pasta are all readily available at our local grocery stores.
3) Substitute natural sweeteners like stevia, honey, and 100% fruit juice. The more subtle sweetness provided by natural sweeteners helps taste buds adjust gradually to less sugar.

Xocai offers many low-glycemic healthy chocolate products that children love. See for more information.

Check back here next week for more timely tips on improving your children’s health or call 719.439.0142 today. Here’s to a healthy week!

Make Money In Denver With A Facebook Business

If you are a veteran Colorado Spring social networker who uses Facebook and Twitter to interact with friends, have you ever considered using these sites to make money?

I use Facebook and Twitter to sell XoBiotic Squares from the comfort and convenience of my Colorado Springs home-based business. I continually marvel at the fact that my online XoBiotic Squares customers live all over the world. Thirty years ago it would have been impossible for a one-person business to reach millions of potential customers. Now online retailers can sell XoBiotic Squares across the Atlantic as easily as they sell it across the street.

Some products and services are better suited to online selling. XoBiotic Squares is establishing an international following that benefits all online XoBiotic Squares retailers. You can take advantage of the Denver that has been building for the past several years. Call me today sign up for your own online Facebook business.
