Celiac disease is a chronic, autoimmune disease of the digestive tract that damages the villi of the small intestine and interferes with absorption of all nutrients from food. It is not the same as having gluten sensitivity! Gluten sensitivity is similar to lactose intolerance. Your body can’t break down gluten, but you can take enzymes that help your body break down gluten. In addition, you do not have an allergic reaction to eating gluten.

Americans have been getting larger by the day, and a lot of Americans are wondering why, but this isn’t just an American problem now. It’s becoming a global issue! According to the World Health Organization (WHO), global obesity has doubled since 1980! Why has obesity increased on a global scale for the past 30 years?

We’ve all seen it from teenagers, and even some adults, with their faces glued to their cell phones. Whether they’re at work, at school, or at a family function, these people (you know who you are!) are always slouched over their darned smartphones, and they are looking at their social media, playing games, browsing the internet, checking their email, and who knows what else.

As I mentioned in my article 7 Steps to Follow When Starting a Business, location is the most important aspect to consider when starting (or even expanding) your business. You have to think carefully about where you should place your business. If you don’t think it through and you place your business in the wrong area, then you will most likely lose out on a lot of potential customers, a strong workforce, or even go bankrupt.
