Under the Big African Sky, part 5

Americans wring their hands fretting about getting enough protein. Here are some of my African friends who eat nothing but plants, mostly greens. Do they look like they lack for muscle mass? Meet the hippo, rhino, water buffalo, elephant, zebra, and giraffe. Do you know that the water buffalo is terribly dangerous to humans? Did […]

10 minutes to feel like a great mom. Because you are!

I saw Kristy again, when I was running errands today. She’s the mom whose 6-year old daughter had her first green smoothie at Roxberry, my first GSG franchisee. Kristy said, “I’m making them at home now. My daughter is totally okay with drinking green stuff because she saw them doing it at the smoothie store.” […]

My daughter asks, “Why do we get sick?”

Dear Mom: “Why do we get colds? Why did I get this cold and you didn’t?” Answer: (This question came from my 13 y.o. daughter, my most resistant healthy eater. I explained it to her and thought you might like the answer as well, highly simplified.) “First of all, a mild cold with clear mucous […]

If you’re coming to my lecture in Riverdale tonight, or Sandy tomorrow night, please come a little early if you want a seat. In Orem and Provo the past two nights, all seats were gone before 7 p.m., and we had people sitting on the floor by me and in the back and all along […]

more M.D. reaction to the China Study

I went to a baby shower, at a restaurant,  for one of my tennis teammates this week. I got to chatting with Sherston, whose husband is the orthopedic surgeon recommended to me recently on facebook. When I posted about my podiatrist wanting me to undergo surgery for my running- and tennis-induced plantar fasciitis. (After reading […]

Change is good . . . or at least inevitable (part 2 of 2)

I once gave up another new sport I’d fallen in love with, kickboxing, when I peeled a tendon off my shoulder bone hitting the bag too hard. For 9 months, I couldn’t do the things I loved. Just like now. A friend of mine just invited me to do a 10-hour hike this Saturday and […]

this is Dr. Campbell’s response

Tomorrow, on to other topics. Today, here is T. Colin Campbell’s response to Mercola’s missive: Dr. Mercola raises so many questions that it would take me at least several weeks if not months to answer. He invents clever sayings and makes serious innuendos that are total nonsense–indeed slanderous. His questions are rhetorical, with meaning, and […]

my last post on the anti-China-Study Mercola newsletter

Related to questions received from yesterday’s post— I don’t know if anyone has critiqued the China Study who isn’t associated with the Weston A. Price Foundation. All the criticism I have read has been. I’m not sure who financed Denise Minger, a 23-year old college student and “professional sock puppeteer” who is paid to write […]

I’ve Got the Magic In Me!

Do you know this song? It’s called Magic, by B.o.B. If that doesn’t turn your bad mood around, listen to this OTHER song also called Magic, by Selena Gomez, too. Sometimes when I’m in here on my PC working, I play Magic and bust out all my dance moves. (The ones that embarrass my kids.) […]
