Toadflakes...YOU can make a difference

In this big World of ours, sometimes we think what ever we do "really doesn't matter."
But it really does, because if everyone knew how much a difference they can make, the whole world could change for the better.

For an example. Let's say we discover a certain food to cause cancer yet the FDA decides not to make the company stop selling that food because there are not enough tests done for them to do so as of yet. But yet x amount of reliable tests show this certain food causes cancer. Now, what if you decided not to buy that type of food. Let's call this food Toadflakes for the fun of it.
So you go to the store and for the past few years you loved your Toadflakes. Toadflakes taste mighty good after all! But this time you decide you're going to make a change and not buy Toadflakes. Matter of fact, you have decided not to buy Toadflakes any more! Not only that, you tell your loved ones and your friends who you care about why you are never going to buy Toadflakes again. In doing so, they also decide not to buy Toadflakes and also pass the word alone.
Soon, Toadflakes Inc. sells so little, they find it no longer profitable and go out of business. YOU have just made a difference! I know what you're saying...but no body will change just because I stop buying Toadflakes...well now let's examine that for a minute.

Let's take an example of how a product or service grows. Is it not because of word of mouth? Let's face it, no matter how great the marketing and advertising is of a product, in the long run if that product is not accepted by enough people, that product will no longer be offered! Simple as that, and yes it works in reverse too.

YOU CAN make a difference. Just make it a positive difference by the choices you make.

I wish you more Wealth and Riches in your life,

Dexter

Cage Free? See for yourself in this video I made




The pictures above are a Cage Free? Farm...
video


It all started with me watching Oprah about the egg industry and seeing how chickens are abused by being in small cages stacked on top of one another laying eggs for our benefit. Oprah suggested we buy Cage Free or Range Free eggs only to support the right treatment of animals. I was all for it. A great idea!

Until I ran across this article today: Don't be misled by these food label tricks Especially the article saying that not all packages of eggs that say Cage Free or Range free are what we expect it to be...

Watch the video and see actual pictures of a near by "cage free farm" that I decided to go check out myself. The farm will go unnamed so I will not be sued.

There's some additional information I discovered after making this video. After inspecting the egg carton, I see stamped on it is a certified stamp by United Egg Producers. It says "Produced in Compliance with United Egg Producers Animal Husbandry Guidelines www.uepcertified.com " After reading the information on this site, I'm convinced their idea of humane treatment of chickens and mine are totally different.

So, what does this have to do with Wealth and Riches? The point is, if I'm spending almost three times the amount of money for eggs to support the cage free chicken/egg industry that's what I want my money to go to as I'm sure you are the same way.

Enjoy the video and please leave me your comments below.



Wishing you more Wealth and Riches in your life.
