Slaves of Our Affection: The Myth of the Happy Pet book
Written by Leigh-Chantelle   
Created Monday, 20 January 2014

Do you think that having pets is beneficial to both people and animals? And that pets enjoy an easy life? 

Longtime former veterinarian Charles Danten asks us to set aside preconceived ideas to take an honest look at what underlies our love of the animals we hold dearest in his book Slaves of Our Affection. The Myth of the Happy Pet? This provocative exposé puts our most revered interactions with animals under the microscope. Meticulously documented, it raises poignant questions about the nature of our relationships with animals, and reveals little-known aspects of the industry behind it all. Pet food manufacturers, pharmaceutical companies, veterinarians, shelters, humane societies, animal activists, factory farms, and even pet owners are at the core of a subtle exploitation that operates under the guise of love and compassion.

Charles took some time out to answer some of my questions.

High Protein, No Powder: Real Food Protein Bars & Smoothies
Written by Leigh-Chantelle   
Created Monday, 13 January 2014
The average person needs 50-80 grams of protein per day.  If you’re trying to build muscle or improve overall healthy, you may need more. The problem is that commercial protein supplements contain dangerous chemicals and are so processed, that the human body does not know how to properly digest them.  The protein in the supplements cannot be properly absorbed and used by the body, and sometimes, can even cause the body to be weaker.

High Protein, No Powder:  Protein Bars and Smoothies Make with Real Food is an eBook written to educate consumers on the dangers of commercial protein bars and protein powders.  These artificial foods are filled with toxins, unnecessary sweeteners and have extremely dangerous effects on the body. See below for my interview with Tiffany from Don't Waste the Crumbs and two of her recipes.
