This information certainly was not part of the many wellness presentations I have provided to the masses over the years.

However, by chance—or probably by universal intervention—I realized there was more to learn about nutrition and its effect on the body, besides the old "food pyramid" I used to promote with great zeal.

Not the high carb, high sugar, processed, and artificially flavored temptations found in today's food chain. And I also now know that restaurants are often not our friend.
