Venison Stew for a Rotation Diet

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.

Dr. Usman on Autism

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.

Calcium, Magnesium and Type II Diabetes

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.

Avoid Wheat If Elevated Antibodies But No Symptoms?

The National Institutes of Health tells us that Auto-Immune Diseases collectively affect more than 24 million people per year in the U.S. 1 To put this in perspective, Cancer affects nearly 9 million people per year and Cardiovascular Disease affects close to 22 million people. And we know that only about 1/3rd of the people with an Auto-Immune Disease are diagnosed.2 This puts Auto-Immune Diseases at the top of the list of the most common diseases in America today. But to most of us, Auto-Immune Diseases are unknown.

Organic Farms Unknowingly Treated with Synthetic Fertilizers

California Liquid Fertilizer is a supplier of inexpensive fertilizer, approved by organic regulators. By 2006, it held as much as a third of the market in California.

Liquid fertilizers work particularly well for cool weather crops like strawberries and salad greens, and market leaders Earthbound and Driscoll's were big customers for California Liquid Fertilizer.

But a state investigation caught the California Liquid Fertilizer , a Salinas-area company spiking its product with ammonium sulfate, a synthetic fertilizer banned from organic farms.

Vitamin D Tests Inaccurate

Consumerist, a popular consumer website, reports that last October, Quest Diagnostics, one of the nation’s largest medical laboratories, contacted "thousands of doctors" around the country, regarding possible testing errors.

Quest acknowledged that one or more of their patients might have received "questionabl e" results on vitamin D tests performed over the past two years. It's offering free retests to anyone who was affected.
