Things That Interested Me: Week of Dec 15, 2011

Wow, yet another two weeks filled with interesting topic after paper after review after article. So hard to keep up with all of it yet so amazingly educational. The things I came across the last couple weeks that caught my attention were aplenty and included the curing of Multiple Sclerosis, the “Power of 1”, low carb and cancer, cold/flu prevention, statins and prostate, leptin and fat loss, fat burning supplements, food combining, food and genes, dieting, thyroid, “eating dirt” and a couple tasty recipes- homemade peppermint patties and bacon wrapped sweet potato bites!
