NaturalNews Insider Alert ( newsletter

Yesterday's story criticizing Michael Phelps for promoting sugary processed foods received a lot of attention. But the story gets even more interesting today: Phelps has been photographed in China serving as an "ambassador" for McDonald's, bringing Chinese children to the fast food restaurant and feeding them burgers, fries and soda.


Today's feature story asks: Is this the behavior of a true champion? Read the details here (and see the picture for yourself):


Phelps needs help. I've just volunteered to be his nutrition coach to help boost his performance in future swimming events, but only if he gives up promoting junk foods. That story is here:
