Before flying an airplane, multiple checks are done to ensure the fuel is pure, is the correct type, and has no containments, like sediment or water.

How often do we check our own fuel?

Do those “multi-grain” muffins actually contain any significant amount of whole wheat or bran?

How much salt does that “low sodium” soup really have?

Remember: You are what you eat!

Read those labels, learn what they mean, and make your own good decisions about your personal fuel.

In the meantime, check out the Nutrition Action Healthletter for some great information to help you out.
