“Errr, isn't "Big Pharma" making a killing by selling people the bucket loads of antibiotics that people are taking for years at a time ?!”

Tim53 on May 21, 2013 at 17:26:19

“Antibiotics are relatively cheap compared to all the drugs for Fibromyalgia, MS, Chronic Pain, Chronic Fatigue, Sleeplessness, Lupus, ALS, etc, etc. All symptoms of Lyme disease and its coinfections.”

“Cheap Triple Sec will ruin a margarita easier than cheap tequila. It's basically just orange oil and sugar, and has a nasty aftertaste. Go with Grand Marnier- it is less expensive than Cointreau, but better IMO.”

“Hate to be the geography police, but...

The Rio Grande runs North-South, starting in Colorado.
Most of northern California is probably "north of the Rio Grande"...”

editorjuno on Dec 22, 2011 at 11:15:40

“I'd venture Kentucky has more growers per capita that California, which is much more densely populated and no doubt leads the country in (more or less legal) retail dispensaries.”

“"This has NOTHING to do with nuclear power production­."

Where do think the nuclear waste came from???”

charles77 on Sep 12, 2011 at 14:20:42

“The article states:

"The site treats low-level radiation waste. According to Le Monde, the explosion took place in an oven that reduces the volume of the radioactive waste before treatment."

Most low level nuclear waste come from medical uses such as dental xrays, radiation cancer treatments ect.

Spent Nuclear Plant fuel is high level waste.”

alvdh1 on Sep 12, 2011 at 12:29:07

“What do you think they produce at the facility? MOX Fuel!!!! Where is MOX Fuel used?
At nuclear power plants designed to use MOX Fuel. What fuel did unit number 3 use in Fukushima? MOX Fuel. What was in the Fukushima unit number 3 spent fuel pool? Used MOX Fuel. You have a lot of Moxxy to falsely say what you did.”

“Just wanted to point out that what most of the THC/cancer sites refer to as "hemp oil" is a high THC extraction of marijuana, and completely unrelated to "hemp oil" meaning the oil pressed out of hemp seeds.”

dutchdragonfly on May 9, 2011 at 18:31:37

“Thank you zymos. The more I read up on it, the more I realize that high THC is what he's referring to, and I'm sure my cousin is aware of it. Since his biopsy was done, just after Easter, his normally elaborate and verbose emails have shortened to just a few lines. He just can't concentrate or focus right now. Either way, I'm sure he'll be happy to have whatever benefits the hemp oil or THC can bring him. And I will be happy too. ;)

Thanks again for helping me clarify it.
fnf for taking the time to reply. We're all just taking it day by day :D”

“Then again, those foreign "organic" wines you love permit sulfites to be added, if that is a concern...”

hp blogger David J. Duman on Apr 28, 2011 at 13:47:10

“Sulfites are not a concern except for those with a specific (a very rare) anaphylactic allergy to them. They are a natural part of wine making and have been used deliberately for 1000 years and unintentionally for much longer. They are one of the most effective natural preservatives available.

Most people who think they have a "sulfite sensitivity" are in fact reacting to any of the numerous other histamines in wine.

I see no harm in sulfites use in organic wine making, although I am perfectly content with the "made from organic grapes" designation. The point is merely to allow the information to be out there.”

ganglewaefre on Mar 22, 2011 at 20:29:48

“The moderators did not like my response to you. Are you a moderator?

Why don't you respond to what I said.

factory farmed eggs are disgusting, the hens are looped up on antibiotics so that they can live long enough in those horrible conditions to squeeze out a few eggs and they are most certainly not as nutritious or as balanced as a real egg that was laid by a hen that walks about outdoors and has a varied and live diet.

Your statement is wrong.”

publanski on Mar 22, 2011 at 19:36:51

“You're right, it's not about the hormones; it's about the difference between FREE RANGE chickens, who live better lives, eat better food, and produce WAY better eggs than those that are factory farmed. Again, if the guy writing the article doesn't know that, he doesn't deserve to be writing about food.”

ganglewaefre on Mar 22, 2011 at 19:31:42

“Did you read my post? If hormones is your only reason, I guess so. But there are many other reasons to buy organic eggs. You keep your reasons narrow enough, and you will be able to excuse anything.

If you're going to respond, have the respect to address what I said.

The nutrition level in a free range chicken laid egg is considerable to a gassed out factory hen suffering in the indecency of mass produced eggs.”

“The quinoa we buy at the local coop is grown (organically, of course!) in Colorado.
I'd bet it can be easily grown in much of the US.”

GearRatio on Mar 21, 2011 at 16:00:22

“Quinoa is a cold temperature / high altitude crop. (The Incas lived in the Andes, after all!) It does not thrive in the "breadbasket" states of the US, but does well in Colorado. The amino acid complement of the Quinoa seed is a close match to human dietary requirements, making it very nutritious, but its yields, at ~ 1500-2000 kg/hectare, are a bit on the low side compared to corn or even wheat.

Personally, I find it quite tasty (and yes, you DO want to rinse of the bitter seed coating before cooking!), but, at the prices currently charged for it, eat it as a treat and not as a staple...”

Camilla Rees on Oct 17, 2010 at 18:01:53

“One of the great features of the new book ZAPPED that Dr. Cass has written about is that it covers well beyond the cell phone and Wi-Fi issues and well into the ELF fields (extremely low frequency) from household electronics and electricity. It is important we understand both. I thought I was in an EMF safe house until I learned the mG was over 30 in places and the body voltage 15 V. To just focus on the RF and MW is shortsighted--so thanks to Dr. Cass and Ann Louise Gittleman for bringing to our attention the importance of both!”
