Is Living in America Bad For Our Health, Ladies? Apparently so…

As we fight to raise awareness about breast cancer in America we need to also need to diligently pursue answers for prevention.  From where I’m sitting prevention is far more appealing than the need to cure.

A Word From the Peanut Gallery…It’s Not That Simple

  As far as I’m concerned, food allergies can be officially added to the list of epidemic conditions in America.  When I was a child I didn’t know one single person with an allergy to peanuts.  We probably would all have starved to death without ample access to peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.  Peanut butter…

“Evian” spelled backwards is “NAIVE”

It looks like the joke is on us.  We have had some very NAIVE drinking habits.  Here are some facts about bottled water that you may not know:  The majority of bottled water is just tap water with the chlorine removed.  No..it doesn’t come from some mysterious natural spring somewhere…that’s just good marketing The chemicals…

Gallbladder surgery used to be associated with older people.  It was explained away by saying that (over time) the gallbladder just quit doing what it’s supposed to do and it became a problem.   Since it is not a critical component (you can live without it) the easy fix is to remove it.   While it is…
