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!
