You've probably noticed nutrition claims on packaged foods when you've gone grocery shopping. Boxes, cartons, cans and bags filled with some of our favourite foods all seem to be screaming "fat free," "low sodium," or "light."
When it comes to nature conservation, a little goes a long way. Small-scale conservation efforts can have a huge impact and help ensure that we and future generations can enjoy precious natural spaces. This Earth Day, the Nature Conservancy of Canada challenges you to partake in at least one small act of conservation.
As more and more Christian faith communities are coming to understand care for creation as central to their spiritual mission, ecological and climate justice are featuring prominently in the ways they live out their faith and celebrate seasons like Lent and Easter.
Emergency department wait times are a matter of concern for many Canadians. We wonder if we, or our loved ones, will have to wait in pain or discomfort for hours before being seen. Or if a life-threatening condition could get worse while we wait.
Vampires, we're sorry to say, it's not your month. April is all about celebrating the almighty clove and that's exactly what we're planning on doing! We've got 10 terrific garlic recipes to help you kick-off National Garlic Month.
This Earth Day, thousands of scientists will descend on Washington DC to protest budget cuts to their departments. The science seems to suggest that when people in lab coats align with one political side, they only drive people further away. Instead, scientists need to stoke our wonder.
What caregivers need are accessible services for the person they are caring for, when they need them. Caregivers have told me they want access to services for themselves and the care recipient, not a pat on the back. This is the true meaning of recognition.
Meatballs are one of my hubby, Meik's, favourite foods but for some reason they always get forgotten in the rotation (oops...). A few weeks ago we were up in Kamloops visiting our families and his sister, Jeannette, was whipping up a batch of the family fave and it inspired me to make some.
Saying goodbye to online connections could have repercussions for your in-person interactions. Even if this is "your" news feed and you have the right to choose who and what appears in it, take a moment to reflect on the repercussions before clicking "unfriend." Consider the side-effects of this click.
Across Canada, we search far too often for answers to explain why and how our loved ones die on the job - whether the sudden loss of an industrial accident, or the slow death from chemicals or other toxins in the workplace. In 2015, the most recent year for which numbers available, 852 workers died at work.
Any time someone pontificates about Canada, they're going to get it in the neck - from regionalists who get red faced when any region but their own gets a moment in the spotlight, from people who simply feel their agenda isn't being represented. But those decrying the series' omissions are missing its intent.
We should be talking about brain health the same way we do, say, heart health. In school, we're taught about heart disease and stroke, and how healthy eating and exercise can help us combat and prevent these diseases. And that's very important, but we should be doing the same when it comes to mental health.
I'm 40 now, and have supposedly already successfully processed through this stuff. And it STILL triggered me, so I can't imagine how an adolescent with a mental illness would feel while watching this series. Bottom line, if you intend to watch the series, watch it with a friend or better yet, an adult you trust.
No matter how hard we wish to deny it or change it, life is short. And each of us has so many things we want to do. Yet, there never seems to be enough time. In fact, there is more time than most of us realize; we just waste so much of it.
