Americans are slowly waking up to the sad fact that much of the food sold in the US is far inferior to the same foods sold in other nations. In fact, many of the foods you eat are BANNED in other countries.

Here, I’ll review 10 American foods that are banned elsewhere, which were featured in a recent MSN article.1

Seeing how the overall health of Americans is so much lower than other industrialized countries, you can’t help but wonder whether toxic foods such as these might play a role in our skyrocketing disease rates.

#1: Farm-Raised Salmon

If you want to maximize health benefits from fish, you want to steer clear of farmed fish, particularly farmed salmon fed dangerous chemicals. Wild salmon gets its bright...

Cringe at the thought of major repairs to your home? It’s the little preventative maintenance things you do throughout the year that’ll keep big repair bills at bay. In fact, you can keep your entire house fit and healthy for a mere $300 per year. Here’s how.

1. Get up close and personal with your house.

OTTAWA -- Home ownership has become less affordable for the average Canadian, but that hasn't stopped many from jumping into what may already be an overpriced market, suggests a new report from the Royal Bank.

Royal Bank says its housing affordability index reversed course in the second quarter of this year in two of the three categories it measures -- bungalows and two-storey homes -- after generally improving over the past year.

That means that on average, Canadians were paying more of the pre-tax income to service their homes compared to the first quarter of the year, although the index is still down from a year ago

With the latest in kiddo fort designs, children get the benefits of climbing walls, fire poles and suspended bridges, while the grown-ups get to gaze out on little structures that look like an architect's model or a Mondrian...

Million dollar homes are nothing new to the City of Vancouver. But this rare opportunity to own both sides of this award winning “Heritage A” Mansion located in 1st Shaughnessy is on another level of opulence.

This luxurious estate was the home of the former Lt. Governor. The house is actually two separate units and until now these two units have never been on the market at the same time. However, since the current owner has connected both for easy access, they have been listed as one.

The units can easily be converted back to two independent units (#1 – 4686 sq ft /#2 – 7530 sq ft) combined total of 12,216 square feet.

Vancouver's Most Expensive Home

 

This beautifully restored heritage residence includes formal rooms, 2 wine cellars, oak floors,...
