  1. Hence the reason to re-think what we eat. We ARE what we eat. Thanks to growth hormones, children are developing earlier than they should and parents should be demanding changes in food production, but instead are still lining up at the express window for a Happy Meal. Are we ‘happy’ yet? Because we’re certainly not healthy.


  2. Excellent point, Shelby. I remember why I was waiting for you to come back on line – I think I have found the solution to my digestive problem (the kind that doctors don’t seem to be able to diagnose). I have been taking megadose Vitamin C for the last month and am much improved. One thing I have been told is that I have a chronic intestinal infection involving the production of endotoxin. This nephrologist who studies Vit C says people my age should take at least 2,000 mg Vit C a day – with much more needed with infections that produce endotoxin.

    I have been taking liposomal Vit C (every 6 hours because it’s short acting) because it’s easier on the gut.

  3. I’ll be following in your footsteps because likewise I have intestinal issues and am looking for alternative solutions to what the doctors are advising. Thank you for the heads up.

    And thankfully, move-in day is almost here. And then I can get rid of this damn phone.
