The Red Cochineal bug is known for adding a pink blush to candies, ice creams, yogurts, fruit juices, cheeses, and even butter.

Lets chat a bit about blood pressure, so many have passed on because of high blood pressure issues. Hypertension, is another word for “high blood pressure.” Uncontrolled blood pressure will eventually catch up with you if you live long enough. The uncontrollable force of blood pressing into the walls of your arteries will eventually damage the walls of the arteries. Your heart has to work harder which will cause serious damage to your arteries; the workload increases the risk of heart disease, stroke, and kidney disease.
