Treats That Can Kill Pets

While you may be aware of the adverse affects that these foods have on humans, you may not realize just how devastating they can be to your pets. In fact, in many cases, foods that are simply unhealthy for humans can be downright dangerous to pets. Here is a look at just a few of them.

Hey Creditors: Stop Harassing Me!

Unfortunately, because many people are made to feel guilty when they owe money, they think that a creditor has the legal right to hound them until they pay their bills. Fortunately, however, Congress has passed a number of federal laws, most important of them being the FDCPA (Fair Debt Credit Protection Act) which hold that regardless of the status of your delinquency, the amount of money you owe, or how overdue it may be, you do have certain rights.

Diet Without Exercise is a Recipe For Failure

Our bodies were created to live a rugged, active, lifestyle while eating moderate amounts of natural foods.Though we may not live a rugged lifestyle, we most assuredly live a hurried lifestyle. When it comes to developing a lean, fit, muscular body many people don't believe they have the time, motivation, or discipline to exercise on a regular basis. Many of these same people however will rationalize that they can lose the weight by way of dieting alone.

There are many diet programs that even make this part of their advertising campaign, telling you that you can lose the weight without any "streneous exercise." Many people will buy into this idea as a simple way to lose weight. Just buy their pre-packaged diet food, eat it, and you will lose the weight, right? [Read more]
