Nomi and Sheryl
From The Foreword by Mike Adams
The Health Ranger, Editor of Natural News.com
"When I picked up Nomi Shannon's first book, The Raw Gourmet, several years ago, I was immediately struck by the beauty and simplicity of it. Folded among the pages of astonishingly beautiful photographs of raw food creations were unexpectedly short, simple-to-follow, and yet rewarding recipes that used only a few basic ingredients to achieve spectacular results. I was hooked. That book still stands on my shelf as one of the milestone contributions to the world of raw food cuisine. Now, it seems Nomi has achieved the remarkable yet again, this time teaming up with Sheryl Duruz and taking us on a whirlwind tour through rich cultural food traditions and tongue-teasing tastes while somehow managing to achieve a rare balance of artfulness and simplicity at the same time.
The recipes in this book, Raw Food Celebrations, have become some of my instant favorites. Through Nomi's and Sheryl's guidance, these recipes will inspire you, humble you, and reward you with sheer delight as you munch, crunch, and lunch your way from one recipe to the next, treating yourself to the most healthful meals in the world while impressing friends and family with your newfound brilliance for creating genuine cuisine.
I'll admit I'm a crude preparer of nutritious foods. Most of what I gulp down from my morning blended superfood smoothie ritual is neither elegant nor attractive (blended sprouts and spirulina, after all, are not exactly appealing to the eye), but one afternoon, after using just three recipes from this book you're now holding, I managed to present a raw cuisine spread for family and friends that had them wondering if my body had been secretly switched with a clone who trained at an exotic culinary institute in some far-off land. Needless to say, they were impressed, and I was thrilled!
Whether you're looking to dive into a grand expression of raw food artfulness or simply fill your eager tummy with the most beautiful and nutritious foods in the world, Raw Food Celebrations may be just the book you're looking for. Nomi's and Sheryl's guidance provides exactly the direction you need to go from being a raw food novice like me to a true raw food artist respected by friends and family alike. I encourage you to dive right in, turn a few pages, get your hands drenched in lemon juice, and start discovering just how much fun it really is to eat the most healthful foods in the world!"

NaturalNews) The first three months of pregnancy have a significant impact on a baby boy's future fertility. Chemicals found in cosmetics could create infertility problems later in life. Researchers at Edinburgh University have shown that exposure to chemicals in the first 12 weeks in the womb can affect sperm production in manhood. Many of these products are routinely used by a majority of women.
Although the evidence is not conclusive, it is a step in the right direction to show women how vital it is to only use natural, healthy products. The skin is the largest organ in the body, and anything that is put on it gets absorbed and ends up in the blood stream, ultimately coming into contact with unborn babies.
Future Disease, Including Cancer
Some chemicals used in cosmetics can block hormones. In the study, male hormones in rats were blocked for a period of time when they were in the womb. These rats went on to suffer from infertility.
The scientists also concluded that these chemicals may also increase the risk of baby boys developing other reproductive conditions in later life, including testicular cancer. They urged women who were intending to become pregnant to avoid putting these harmful cosmetic products on their skin.
Prof. Sharpe, who led the study says, "There are lots of compounds in perfumes that we know in higher concentrations have the potential to have biological effects, so it is just being ultra safe to say that by avoiding using them your baby isn't at risk.
"If you are planning to become pregnant you should change your lifestyle. Those lifestyle things don't necessarily mean that you are going to cause terrible harm to your baby, but by avoiding them you are going to have a positive effect.
"We would recommend you avoid exposure to chemicals that are present in cosmetics, anything that you put on your body that might then get through your body into your developing baby.
"It is not because we have evidence that these chemicals categorically cause harm to babies, it is only based on experimental studies on animals that suggest it is a possibility."
Just Pregnant Women?
If these products disrupt the hormonal balance in baby boys, then doesn’t it stand to reason that they could potentially have a harmful effect on all of us? Do you want to take the chance?
Most people who are into natural health have already concluded that natural, organic or wild products are best. Nature provides everything we need, and putting toxic chemicals on our skin is not going to ultimately make it softer, smoother or younger. These toxins must be processed in the liver, which is the organ that most influences our skin.
The best choice is for every person to choose natural cosmetic products, not just women who are becoming pregnant. It is such an easy way to become less toxic and improve wellbeing.
The problem is that the study also showed that chemicals in household fabrics and plastics can cause the same problem.
