I felt it would be helpful to provide you with a brief synopsis of the value and function of each vitamin and mineral in the body. This will be a 2 part series.Read More
Her observations of reactions to foods i.e. symptoms, starting in the womb, are quite fascinating.

In 1987, scientists discovered a significant link between increased incidence of childhood cancer and close proximity to high tension power lines and electronic devices. The majority of us have heard of the link between brain tumours and cell phones.
