Foods You Should Never Eat   I have posted a link to this article for all you Mamas who have relatives for friends who do not understand your family's food choices. This article is from a very mainstream source, so hopefully they will believe it!     http://www.foxnews.com/health/2011/12/01/7-foods-should-never-eat/
  Thanks so much for your reply!  I'd given up! I will check out the special needs forum. I had not thought of that. I have not had my son tested yet but will. Just wondering what are the differences are between IgA,IgE and IgM? Looking at the lab report, I was tested for IgA and IgM. My IgA is in the normal range 1.14 ( 0.63-2.77 is considered normal) but my IgM count is below at 0.53 (0.63-2.77 is the normal range) It looks like IgE and IgG were not tested. I read...
Wow! Really moving! Thanks for sharing!
   From what I understand, Weston A Price examined the diets of many different cultures and the diets really did vary. The isolated Swiss ate dairy, but not fish, The Japanese fish but not dairy. The Georgians also ate fermented dairy and grains. Only the Inuit (the PC name for "Eskimo") and the Massai ate primarily meat.

The Dancing Girls of Lahore by Louise Brown   http://www.amazon.com/Dancing-Girls-Lahore-Pakistans-Pleasure/dp/0060740426   This book attracted me because I am very interested in various forms of ethnic dance and the social positions of professional dancers in different societies.

The official stance is that it is hereditary (I will be having my son tested too) and there is nothing that can be done. Are there...
I am so happy to see some of the long time members posting here! In general I've felt like a lots of mamas have left. The only "problem" I have with menopause is sleep. I fall  asleep just fine but wake up a few hours later and can't get back to sleep. It is not every night.
I am so happy for you and your daughter Linda! Hmmm what can I brag about?  DS 13 with a  learning disorder just got an A+ on his science exam!
54.
