Just from the fact the MK4 is taken in milligrams and MK7 in micrograms, it seems that MK4 is safer. Also, I read on another forum that MK7 doesn't have that effect on teeth.

Mandy, there's only 4 carbs in a 5 ounce pour of red wine. I think it's totally reasonable to fit in 5-10 grams of carbs a week from wine. That's less carbohydrate than is in most fruits. A 3/4 cup serving of strawberries comes in at 8 grams of... (more)

Why paleo? Why not grains and dairy? And, what is the payoff for giving them up? What is on the other side of the discomfort (pain) and effort of giving up foods I am addicted to to begin changing to this way of eating?

Dr's prescribe up to 50,000IU/DAY. Perfectly healthy and safe. Some Dr's prescribe up to 100,000IU/every 4 days for muscle fatigue and sometimes more. All backed by clinical research results.

Never tell people that you eat fat! They immediately get on the 'What about your cholesterol?' kick and stop listening.

It depends how high you heat it. If you stay under a certain temp (140F, maybe?), it shouldn't destroy any of the milk's properties. However, a microwave isn't easy to control in that regard since it creates spots of very high heat. If you want to... (more)
