Every day of your life, from birth to death. Could you imagine that? No? Well, that is the fate of thousands … no millions … of animals that are reared and hel...

My mother is German and my father is Lebanese. I was born in Germany but vis...

They can be complex or simple. They can have long-term or short-term influences. They can be about political, personal, medical or financial matters. Decisions over decisions over decisions.

What do Acerola, Quinoa, Chia, Acai, Goji berries, Noni and Chlorella have in common?The answer: they are classified as superfoods, also known as powerfoods.
