Moms: How much is your heart worth?

If you’re a mother, you’d better think long and hard about this question. Science is teaching us about the hardships that life imposes on the hearts of women, and for many of us, the news is sobering. At a recent American Heart Association meeting, Dr. Michelle Albert presented research scanning ten years that shows that women who experience a lot of stress at work are 88% more likely to have a heart attack.  So what exactly does “stress” at work mean? Stress means feeling underused and powerless over our decisions or experiencing high job strain....more

The Sexy

Young American girls know what's sexy.   It's the Abercrombie & Fitch pants they wear and the Dolce & Gabbana purses they carry.    It's also their Herbal Essences shampoo, MAC foundation and Victoria Secret-enhanced breasts. Throw in a t-shirt that fits too tight, a few piercings, a tattoo, a touch of devious behavior and the stage is set for action....more

International Peace On Playgrounds

At a typical playground in Los Angeles it is common to be surrounded by outcasts of every religion, nationality, culture and creed.  I'm talking Moms, their kids and at least 4 languages. This always impressed me....more

This Much is True

 http://projectsupermom.blogspot.com/2010/11/this-much-is-true.htmlSometimes I don't want to admit it...sometimes, it just doesn't feel like it could be true...but, when I really look around me at all that I have...when I take a good look at myself and see all that I am, I can truly say the following words say it all. I truly hope they ring true for you, too, supermoms!"Realizing that despite the craziness, this is the best time of your life!" --Parent Magazine...more

The Great Chicken Nugget Debate – and ‘it takes a village’

I was reading an article recently from Dr Mercola’s site about chicken nuggets from you-know-where (just think golden, and arches, in that order).  Dr Mercola is an osteopathic physician, known as a DO and can prescribe medication and perform surgery in all 50 states.  He has a very popular website, where he provides up-to-date natural health information.  You may have seen him appear on the Dr Oz show, CNN, or heard of the books that he writes, for example, The Great Bird Flu Hoax. One of the posts on his site, published on November ...more

Let the Battle Rage

http://projectsupermom.blogspot.com/2010/11/let-battle-rage.html Finally! Our representatives have grown a pair and have drawn a line in the sand against the fast food industry, on our behalf. In a nearly unanimous vote by city officials, fast food operators in San Francisco can no longer give away toys in kid's meals, unless they meet certain standards...much higher than what these restaurants currently hold for themselve...in sodium, fat, sugar, fruit, vegetable, beverage, and caloric content....more
