What you should know about what happens when you BBQ meat, or fry potatoes

USA Today wrote recently about the FDA’s new rules instructing the food industry how to reduce acrylamide. That’s a carcinogenic chemical produced in many processes involved in creating “foods” like French fries, cold cereal, and coffee.

We’re going to Paracelsus al Ronc Again! May 25, 2014

I had the most fabulous time, recently returned, from our 2-week Liver Detox retreat in the Swiss Alp town of Castaneda, at Clinica Paracelsus al Ronc.

15 Ways I Optimize Health and Energy Every Day—Besides Good Food! (part 2 of 4)
