We're just past Halloween and I think my kids are on candy overload. I'm all for cheating now and then, but I think everyone knows that candy isn't very healthy and can make you put on the pounds. Not to mention all the artificial dyes and other unhealthy things it contains, but how would you feel if I told you that before your favorite steak was sitting on your plate, the cow was eating a diet of candy! Not just any candy, but old candy not fit for human consumption! Apparently, candy is cheaper (which sounds very familiar) than a healthy diet in the cow world. So, not only are a lot of people eating unhealthy, but the cow on their plate is eating unhealthy too. Well, it's true and to read the story click here!

If you can believe it, I have another one for you. Apparently bees like M&M's! In France the hard working honey bee taking candy colored sugars back to their hives, instead of doing their job and pollinating the flowers and carrying the sweet, sweet nectar back to their hives!

I'm not sure how I feel about this, but I try to watch what I'm putting into my body and now I have to worry about what's being fed to my favorite cheeseburger. Yikes! Also, we have bees addicted to sugar instead of what nature has given naturally! It all sounds so familiar...
