“I love cooking and I cook from scratch. Every 2weeks I put up a soup (usually a bean and veggie w homemade stock) and freeze jars and pull one out the morning before on day I'm having a salad for dinner. Other nights I saute veggies w either some fish or 4 oz of meat and either add to some brown rice (cooked before) or some pasta”
“Last week on a PBS program about the Neanderthals, some genetic scientists found that we modern humans have 2 -5 percent of Neanderthal genes. So there was interbreeding between Homo Sapiens and Neandertals. Europeans have the largest percentage, Asians the second most and Africans the least. And a number of those genes increase our resistance to some diseases like the Epstein Barr virus”

“I've heard on PBS different stories about shared genetics. One show (granted older than the one you mention) very specifically said the two groups of humans met, but never interacted and there was no genetic signs of Neanderthal in our DNA.
I think the science is in flux, and is currently being debated. Will have to wait until a consensus is reached on the science before I buy into any theory.”

“Sounds like a bunch of b.s. A sound investigation of that concept would be impossible to conduct. .”

“Your conclusions are in error. All this proves is a common ancestor. After all, our DNA only differs from a Bonobo by about 1%. That doesn't prove humans and chimps have interbred.”
“Interesting slideshow on companies that heart food stamps. Chemical based soda and lots of processed food companies; these kinds of foods are not helping the nation's health..esp this poor women's kidneys”

“40 years ago, you couldn't buy taxable items with food stamps. in other words, only food. no soda, no junk. now i think the only restriction is buying food that is already prepared, such as a rotisserie chicken.”

“They also moved a lot more My Italian grandparents lived to late 90's/early 100's,,Grandfather walked 1/2 mile 4x a day to get to his vineyard built on a hill and ate lots of olive oil, moderate amts of full fat cheese, lots of fresh fish and veggies & fruits (from his orchard), eggs from his chickens, occas chicken and red meat and pasta almost every day”
“I paid $500 out of pocket for my colonscopy; a procedure that averages $1000 if submitted via insurance
When I needed to see an eye doctor for a retina detachment, my friend with insurance said that his was around $2000 vis insurance...the doctor charged me $750”

“For someone who has changed their diet and is having trouble w/ gas from eating more veggies, I recomend a probiotic supplement from a good supplement company (should be in refrigerated). Doing fermented veggies might be a little tough for someone having gas from veggies.
Once their digestive system is doing better, they can do a good organic yogurt that says that it has both live and active cultures... (most non-organic commerical yogurts don't have both)
They can then try some fremented veggies like kim chee or saurkaut...Here in NYC, the farmer's markets sell these.”

“Tip #6 eat beans and lentils...buy them dry (not canned)...great source of protein
Tip #7 save bones and make stock..
Tip #8 on day off..cook a big pot of soup...like bean and veggies....bottle it and put in freezer”
“Thanks for the comment about not being afraid of olive oil. Many sites about the Mediterranean diet state that the diet is low fat when it not. Most of the fat consumed is via olive oil and fish w small amts of "full fat" cheeses and very little red meat”

“Yes! Exactly! None of that low fat or non-fat cheese.”
“As stated above:
"Areas of scientific study include anatomy, neurology, bacteriology, pathology, physiology, biochemistry, pediatrics, geriatrics, spinal biomechanics, orthopedics, X-ray, cardiology, nutrition, acupuncture, physiotherapy, gastrointestinal and genitourinary systems, and infectious diseases. "
"However Chiropractic students take 30- 60 hrs of nutrition, most MD students take a minumum of 10 hrs or none."”
