A friend of mine sent me the following email today. I'm posting it here:
I am forwarding this to everyone. This is an extremely important issue that everyone should act on. If this new regulation is passed, it means you will not be able to even purchase vitamins for yourself. You will need to get them from your physician. Please ACT NOW. Our rights to manage our own health could be taken away without us even realizing it.
FDA Attacks Complementary and Alternative Health Care
Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is an autoimmune disease that affects the central nervous system (CNS). The CNS consists of the brain, spinal cord, and the optic nerves. Surrounding and protecting the nerve fibers of the CNS is a fatty tissue called myelin, which helps nerve fibers conduct electrical impulses.
My blog was down for a couple days and my Internet service provider (ISP) was not very quick to resolve the issue. In fact, they didn't really want to fix the problem at all. However, it looks like things are finally working again!
Sacha Baron Cohen, the star 'Borat', has earned the respect of many critics and fans by staying in character during all his interviews promoting his new film.
You may have heard, however, that he was attacked in New York and punched several times by a passer-by who didn't think the prank Cohen was trying to pull was funny.
Cohen approached the man and said, “I like your clothings. Are nice! Please may I buying? I want have sex with it.” The man apparently felt he was being accosted by a lunatic and punched the 35-year-old comedian several times. Cohen shouted for help and his associate, actor Hugh Laurie, eventually came running to his aid.
The concept of body type is central to Ayurveda, and my experience with that tradition gives me a lot of confidence as to the value of diets for specific body types. Dr. D'Adamo has written a bestseller, Eat Right for Your Type. Naturally, this is a book that would interest me. In fact, I'm fairly confident that the idea of a nutrition program for each body type is scientifically sound and it is something I'd like to continue learning about.
The first time I became really familiar with Dr. Adamo was while doing some research on ghee - one of his FAQS popped up on Google. I respect that Dr. D'Adamo has his facts right about ghee -- most other doctors do not, and they don't even have a mind open enough to look at the current research or historical usage.
I would like to learn more about Dr. D'Adamo's nutrition program. However, my first forays into his work (beyond his ghee FAQ) were not confidence inspiring. In my opinion, blood type alone is not sufficient for determining nutritional requirements.
