Thank you for your hard work, even if it does take more time than you intend. The importance of communicating information like this can't be exaggerated.

This past week was filled with lots of reading, for sure! The articles you cited deserve time and attention and serious thought/action. The triglycerides piece was very interesting for me in particular since my mother had a stroke 4 years ago - it involved her right side (speech was not affected)but it was enough to scare the "you-know-what" out of me. It took a couple of years for me to motivate and sink my teeth into research to try and prevent THAT from happening to me. Most of the research gives me great hope that my genes do NOT have to lead me down that path...I can re-program. Michael Pollen's wise mantra "Eat food, not too much, mostly green" resonates in my brain daily. He also mentions in "Food Rules" to eat only the foods that grandma would recognize...I love that one! Sage advice.
I recently read another interview with Mehmet Oz who talked about the power of food and how careful we have to be with our choices: "Food is not something you just pull off the has a life force to it." How true indeed.
My Saturday job, working in a very delicious famous bakery, teases and taunts me each week, but my resolve against sugar/white flour and what they can do to my body is stronger and stronger with each posting of this website and other readings. It's not easy selling those creamy eclairs, sugared scones and buttery croissants, but the more I know, the easier it is to resist. Now, it's a no-brainer! Thanks so much for your support and inspiration. You keep me on my toes!
PS...I also wanted to congratulate BRENDA in the last posting...well done!

Thank you so much. You have reminded me that sugar and refined foods in general are essentially poisons. I was losing my enthusiasm for a truly healthy diet. The knowledge that you share is a five-star dinner - for the brain (in more ways than one)!

Your blog is a treasure - so happy I found it.
