How the heck did you find some ancient study like that that gives essentially the opposite of nearly every other study out there? Googling 'bone density vegetarianism' comes up with this: http://ajcn.nutrition.org/content/90/4/943.full first... (more)

I would never take a hormonal birth control pill. I understand that it is tough guarding against unwanted pregnancy. I did use the IUD and it worked well until we wanted another child.... (more)

I'd say that tolerating less food goes against the very human need to survive. Less tolerance sets one up for selection to do its work of sorting out the less-fit via starvation. In these modern times, under affluent conditions, if you can't... (more)

I finally found a potential source of grass fed, grass-finished beef. The catch? It seems this farm will only have grass-finished beef available by the half or whole cow in the autumn. I've only ever had grass-finished beef as ground beef via... (more)

We recently purchased a 1/4 cow and I would do a few things differently if I decide to do it again. Luckily our farmer also sells meat by the individual cut so we purchased some beef from her beforehand to make sure we liked the taste. Is there... (more)
