    Hi Jim, I’m thrilled that I gave you a “kick in the pants”. Right now I’m reading a book, Beyond Backpacking by Ray Jardine and a chapter on food: white flour, white rice, excitotoxins, etc. – “Poorly-nourished hikers often find themselves low on energy and endurance…” and blame it the steepness of the mountain. “The poorly-nourished brain is largely incapable of producing positive emotions”. A couple titles he mentions are Beating the Food Giants by Paul A. Stitt – and Excitotoxins, The Taste that Kills by Dr. Russell L. Blaylock. I think it is so important to research what we put in our bodies even though western medicine largely ignores nutrition. No one is going to do it for us.

      You’re so right. It’s ironic… my oncologist tells me it really doesn’t matter what I eat and yet there is a nutritionist in the same building who meets with cancer patients to talk about the importance of a good diet with no processed foods. Go figure!
