The most frequently read post on the chemical-free-life.org blog for two years running has been the listing of additives in these uber-processed foods.

Cloris Leachman: A True Friend to the Animals 💚

Yesterday, Cloris Leachman passed away peacefully in her sleep at age 94.  Cloris was an Academy Award-winning actress and a comedic genius.  I was friends with Cloris for many years, and there was a side to Cloris that not a lot of people knew – her great kindness and compassion towards animals.  She was a fearless animal advocate and showed up on behalf of the animals and LCA on numerous occasions.  In the 1980’s, Cloris was LCA’s first President.

She will be very sorely missed.  She was a great friend to me, to the animals, and to LCA.

Rest in Peace Cloris.

For the animals,

Chris DeRose
