It's one of several reasons I didn't finish the PUFA report when I thought I would. I'll be posting a sequel to this that describes the health issue I had to deal with, goes into vitamin A and the eye in much more detail, and at that point will also post a new update on the PUFA Report. <br /><br /><script type="text/javascript"> var _gaq = _gaq || []; _gaq.push(['_setAccount', 'UA-22004430-1']); _gaq.push(['_trackPageview']); (function() { var ga = document.createElement('script'); ga.type = 'text/javascript'; ga.async = true; ga.src = ('https:' == document.location.protocol ?

While I would ordinarily want to thoroughly research all the unanswered questions in my mind before publishing something, the requests for my thoughts have been numerous enough that I would like to publish them as they currently are. </span></span><br><br><a href="https://blog.cholesterol-and-health.com/2015/08/weighing-in-on-fermented-cod-liver-oil.html#more">Read more »</a>Chris Masterjohnhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/09922003080748568167noreply@blogger.com324tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-5977689274110133568.post-47992155148582236372015-07-15T11:25:00.000-07:002015-07-15T11:25:27.324-07:00When SAMe Helps, Consider Magnesium and Your Metabolic Rate<span style="font-family: Arial,Helvetica,sans-serif;">New post over at <i>Mother Nature Obeyed:</i></span><br /><br /><a href="http://www.westonaprice.org/blogs/cmasterjohn/helps-consider-magnesium-metabolic-rate/" target="_blank"><span style="font-family: Arial,Helvetica,sans-serif;">When SAMe Helps, Consider Magnesium and Your Metabolic Rate</span><i> </i></a><br /><script type="text/javascript"> var _gaq = _gaq || []; _gaq.push(['_setAccount', 'UA-22004430-1']); _gaq.push(['_trackPageview']); (function() { var ga = document.createElement('script'); ga.type = 'text/javascript'; ga.async = true; ga.src = ('https:' == document.location.protocol ?

If you missed it, you can watch the video <a href="http://intelligencesquaredus.org/debates/upcoming-debates/item/910-dont-eat-anything-with-a-face">here</a>. It was a great experience, from which I learned a lot.
