Cover cut-up venison stew-meat with filtered water and boil slowly four or five hours until tender; add sliced carrots and lovage2 (cut in small pieces with scissors) for the last 20 minutes. The stew can be served in bowls; the broth will be delicious. There is no need to add thickening, which would spoil the rotation diet. Carrots and celery can be served raw as salad. All three of these vegetables (plus others such as parsley and chervil) belong to the parsley food family.

Anju Usman, MD gave a lecture titled: Biochemical Individuality and Autism in Oak Park on March 24. As director of the True Health Medical Center, Naperville, IL, Dr. Usman is very aware of the current Autism epidemic and how the number of cases is rising. She often treats autistic symptoms with biomedical interventions, for example melatonin to help sleep.
One of her main points in the lecture is that Autism is not only genetically based; it’s actually triggered by many chemicals and neurotoxins in children’s environment and in their diet.
There is little dispute that diet plays a key role in the development of type 2 diabetes (T2D), but far less is understood about the impact of individual nutrients in populations that do not follow a typical Western Diet.
The Shanghai Women's Health Study explored any relationship between calcium and magnesium intakes and the risk of T2D in a Chinese population.

Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) affects approximately one percent of the adult population, and females are two to four times more susceptible than males.1 This disease is characte r ized by per s istent inflammation of the synovium, (a membrane lining in freely moving joints that secre tes fluid), destruction of bone and cartilage, and possible functional disability.
A five month investigation by the Seattle Post-Intelligencer into “honey laundering”, the intentional mislabeling of the country of origin, found that tons of Chinese honey coming into the U.S. is tainted with banned antibiotics.
