Okay, This is Creepy

Are humans designed/evolved to eat everything and at risk of malnutrition as vegetarians? Or is vegetarianism the healthy and ethical choice? The most impressive data arises from a study of 1904 vegetarians over 21 years by the German Cancer […]

Ahhh…Back in the Saddle

Well, having jumped the sinking ship that is efx2blogs.com, I find myself landed here and managed to get my blog looking pretty familiar now. I’ve been able to duplicate the look pretty closely and I’m happy with that. I’m having some issues with the widget layout thing because (I think) the template I used has some flaws in it. But […]
