Raking the lawn burns 350 calories an hour, a gas mower is about 250 calories per hour. That’s equivalent to a 40 minute treadmill jog. Amp the calorie burn – do a 30 minute power rake. Leaf blowers are for the timid- moving your arms still pumps the heart.
Hauling leaves and lifting them into garbage bins – Do a few presses with the bagged leaves, adds to the burn.10 minute – 100 – 150 calorie burns –strength builders

Try Better Homes and Gardens: Lawn Mower Lunges”
Stand up tall and hold the handle of your mower with a firm grip. Step forward with your right foot and push the mower. As soon as your right foot lands, bend both your knees until your left knee hovers just above the ground. Stand up and immediately step your left foot forward into the next “lunge.” Alternate legs until you’ve traveled the length of your yard, usually 8-12 steps per foot. This tones your butt, legs, and middle.”

Genetic engineering impacts our children. Altered nutrients or added toxins can result in developmental problems. We’re being fed GM foods daily, without knowing the impact of these foods on our health, our behavior, or our children.
Thousands of schools around the world, particularly in Europe, have decided not to let their kids be used as guinea pigs. They have banned GM foods. (seehttp://www.seedsofdeception.com).
GM foods are typically measured by a small number of known nutrient levels. Identifying the changed compounds responsible for antisocial nature of mice or humans in ingesting GM products cannot be fully explained.
For example: the pigment in blueberries may revive the brain’s neural communication system, and the antioxidant found in grape skins may fight cancer and reduce heart disease. But what about other valuable compounds we don’t know about that might change or disappear in GM varieties?With the epidemic of obesity and diabetes parents and schools are waking up to the critical role that diet plays. When making changes in what kids eat, removing GM foods should be a priority.
