Mercury Levels on the Rise
Many Americans are finding out that their mercury levels are high. High levels of mercury over a lifespan can cause brain damage, vision impairment, muscle weakness, memory loss and mental disturbance. This has been linked to eating too much tuna and other types of seafood high in mercury.
So, what do you do if you love tuna? First things first, get your mercury levels down. Eating green leafy vegetables can help. Chlorophyll (found in these veggies) is the best way to detoxify the liver. Wheat grass is another one to try-most health food store juice bars now serve this up in a shot glass. As for giving up the tuna sushi and sandwiches-substitute salmon in your spicy tuna roll and canned salmon on your sandwich. Bon Appetite!

Higher Cholesterol from Coffee??
This month in Fitness Magazine’s Nutrition Q&A page, a reader asked the question : “What’s the healthiest way to brew coffee?” It never occurred to me that my french press could be harming my health. According to an assistant professor at The Harvard School of Public Health, coffee contains a cholesterol stimulating substance, cafestrol, which can raise LDL (bad cholesterol). Using a paper or mesh filter can eliminate cafestrol from getting into your cup. The French press has no filter and should be avoided on a daily basis at least. Save it for your trip to Paris!

YUMM!!! We are fairly new to Gevalia Coffees, but we are already hooked. Nothing compares to the white crème brule here. We have been spoiled by it, and cannot find a better flavor anywhere! Keep up the great work!
