    Re: Mercury confusion

    Pattypans, thank you for your kind words.
  3. Re: Hormone therapy clinics could be putting patients in danger

  11. Re: Beauty is only peel deep: New delivery service offers 'ugly' produce

    Sounds like a great idea to me. It's a shame the amount of perfectly good food that's disposed of because of a few imperfections. And, at $12 a box, people who otherwise couldn't afford it will now...
  12. Re: What Every Breast Cancer Patient Must Take

    Yes, I was aware of his troubles over a decade ago. But, the "meat" of the article is about a study he was not involved in. He only conveys the study's findings....he says the study supports what...

  16. Re: Organic Apples Have More Diverse Microbiome Than Chemically-Grown Ones

    Thanks, Julieanne. You taught me to always question who paid for a study to be conducted. Often times, the study's conclusion will line up with the interest of the person or organization paying for...
  17. Re: Massive 5.6 pound avocado in Hawaii wins Guinness World Records title

    I agree. I'm not a fan of the avocado taste. After about a teaspoon of guacamole, I'm ready to move on.
  18. Re: Organic Apples Have More Diverse Microbiome Than Chemically-Grown Ones

    Aw shucks, Islander. What a nice thing to say. Two things I've learned during my 8 years as a member of HH: 1. Follow the money; and 2. There's always more to the story. So, the original posted...
  19. Re: Sickle Cell Disease: A Patient Hopes Gene-Editing Can Help

  20. Re: Massive 5.6 pound avocado in Hawaii wins Guinness World Records title

    grulla, it must have been that fertile volcanic soil because the owners claim no fertilizers were used, according to the article. Heck, they claimed they didn't even water the 20 ft. tree. I didn't...
  21. Re: Organic Apples Have More Diverse Microbiome Than Chemically-Grown Ones

    Very informative article. Who knew we eat about 100 million bacterial cells with each apple. One reason for less bacterial diversity among conventionally grown apples is the use of pesticides. ...

    Islander, thank you for this very informative article. AFM is especially scary because it strikes young children, with the average age being 4 to 5 yrs. old--kindergarteners. One ray of sunshine is...
  25. Re: Why Are UK Experts Recommending HPV Vaccine For Seniors Over 60 Years Old?
