Kraft Was Forced To Recall 6.5 Million Boxes Of Macaroni and Cheese. The Reason? I Had No Idea

Several months ago Kraft was forced to recall 6.5 million boxes of their famous macaroni and cheese after receiving eight complaints. People were becoming ill due to metal contamination. The particular boxes marked “Best When Used By” September 18, 2015 through October 11, 2015 were only sold in the U.S., Puerto Rico, and some Caribbean and South American countries. The contaminated boxes contained “C2″ under the expiration date.

This recall has reopened the questionable toxicity of this product overall, due to the fact that it contains food dyes Yellow 5 and Yellow 6. This revelation is really frightening, as many of our kids grew up on this and continue to consume it. Both of these dyes contain benzidene or other potentially carcinogenic chemicals.

The causality of cancer comes from Yellow 5’s genotoxicity; which means that it can halt cell reproduction by damaging the genetic information within a cell, which in turn causes mutations. The video you are about to watch below, tells a cautionary tale about this danger.

A study was done in 2012, which advised that due to evidence about the carcinogenicity of food dyes, and the unwillingness for the “Health & Food” industry to perform robust studies of the dangers of toxicity, these food dyes which add nothing nutritionally should be banned from usage. In the U.K. and other European nations, it has been removed from their boxed macaroni and cheese because of the potential health hazards. People in the U.S. should boycott this and any other products containing these harmful dyes, so the food industry gets the message. Let us know what you think after watching the following footage.

WATCH: THIS Is Why You Never Put A Child Wearing A Winter Coat Into A Car Seat. Did You Know?

Many of us believe that if we strap our babies in all snug and cosy that they will be safe, however, the awful reality is that the huge winter coats we put them in to keep them warm can actually be more harm than good in the space of a car.
Because winter coats are often big, they leave a dangerous space between the belt and the body of the child.

God forbid, a crash was to ever occur, the coat can often prevent the effectiveness of the belt. Should you come to a sudden stop or jolt the space will be compressed and this negates the effectiveness of the car seat straps.
Although we know it is important to keep your child warm in winter, we would suggest just using the heaters in your car to regulate the temperature.

Or if your car doesn’t have heater, instead of having your child wear the coat, remove it, and get them to use it as a blanket.

The video below will provide you with more information and reveals the dangers of strapping your child in his or her car seat while wearing a big thick winter jacket.

We think everyone needs to see this time of year, with icy and blustery conditions making it particularly dangerous on the roads, you could save someones life by SHARING this post with your friends and family on Facebook. Please pass it on.

Removing the jacket could prevent serious harm to your child, should an incident occur.

Stay safe people, and have a happy holidays! All the best.

Penguins have to be one of the cutest animals on the planet. Fluffy, plump and often clumsy, it’s all but impossible for these unique birds to evoke anything other than positive emotions — and those photographers lucky enough to see them in their natural habitat regularly reminds us of this fact.

The Rock Shares First Photo Of Baby Girl With Touching Advice To Fathers

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson shared the first photo of his baby girl, Jasmine, just days after he and girlfriend Lauren Hashian welcomed her on Wednesday, December 16.

In the photo, little Jasmine is seen lying on her daddy’s chest as he stares down at her.

“Christmas came early! Within minutes of being born she was laying [sic] on daddy’s chest. And being a grateful man takes on a whole new meaning,” he wrote on Instagram on Sunday. “Kinda crazy but in this cool and powerful skin to skin bonding moment with my newborn baby Jasmine, I had just one wish I asked the universe… Give me the strength to be a better man today than I was yesterday.”

Johnson, who recently shared an important message for all dog owners, now had some wise advice for all future fathers. Aside from telling them to aim to be better, he also encouraged them to be there for their child’s mother.

“I was right there during labor, helping her breathe, every highly intense contraction, every second of pain, right there watching the actual birth, cutting the cord and wiping the tears. Incredible,” Johnson wrote. “Now don’t get me wrong boys, it wasn’t like I was at the end of the table, squatting like a catcher waiting for the fastball to come down the pike… but as men, it’s a miracle we should witness because it’ll give you a whole new respect for the strength and beauty of a woman.”

See the beautiful photo below and please SHARE his special words!

Christmas came early! Within minutes of being born she was laying on daddy’s chest. And being a grateful man takes on a whole new meaning… Thank you guys so much for the awesome congratulatory wishes and love you’ve been sending @laurenhashianofficial and myself. We’re extremely grateful. Kinda crazy but in this cool and powerful skin to skin bonding moment with my newborn baby Jasmine, I had just one wish I asked the universe… Give me the strength to be a better man today than I was yesterday. If I can accomplish that, then I’d have a good shot at being a great father. To all you young men out there who will be fathers one day, the goal of “being better” will never steer you wrong. Trust me I’ve been down this road. Something else that’ll never steer you wrong is “walking thru the fire” with your baby’s mama. I was right there during labor, helping her breathe, every highly intense contraction, every second of pain, right there watching the actual birth, cutting the cord and wiping the tears. Incredible. *(Now don’t get me wrong boys, it wasn’t like I was at the end of the table, squatting like a catcher waiting for the fastball to come down the pike..😂 but as men, it’s a miracle we should witness because it’ll give you a whole new respect for the strength and beauty of a woman). Again, THANK YOU guys so much for all the love during this blessed time. I always say I’m a lucky dude because I’ve got the greatest fans in the world – and it’s true. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to you and your families from ours.

Celtic Thunder Has Fans In Tears When They Sing “Hallelujah”

Iwould bet you’ve heard this song 100 times in your lifetime, maybe more, but after hearing this version, you may never hear it the same again!

Leonard Cohen’s iconic and eternally beautiful song, “Hallelujah”, has been covered by everyone from this singing clown to Jon Bon Jovi and everyone in between… And for good reason. To me, it’s easily one of the most incredible songs ever written and its simple, yet powerful lyrics seem to only get better with time. This song can even be performed in another language, like when this brother surprised his sister with a performance on her wedding day, and it’s still gives me chills.

In the following video, we hear “Hallelujah” performed by the one and only Celtic Thunder. No matter if you love Irish music or not, this band from Dublin never fails to disappoint, especially when they take on this Leonard Cohen classic. If you’re not familiar with Celtic Thunder, they’re a group of about 5-6 men who are known for their theatrical stage presence and they sell out concerts worldwide.

There’s something about the following performance that just gave me chills, and as you can see from the audience members crying their eyes out, I wasn’t the only one who was moved.

This song is really something special. Please go ahead and SHARE it with someone you care about on Facebook!
