    Ten miles on my road bike after work last night. One of the benefits of krill oil seems to be improved joint health. No twinges in my knees or ankles during the ride. Dinner was grass-fed strip...

    The Vons on Valley View & Chapman usually carries grass-fed beef, but no liver. I don't recall prices per pound, but the ground beef price seemed OK, cuts of meat on the high side. I usually eat...

    Everyone's different, but make sure you are eating enough fresh veg, lactose fermented veg, and healthy fats.

    My experience is that you usually feel the stone pop out. There is a unique (and briefly painful) feeling when this happens.

    Fortunately the potassium citrate tablets I've been taking have pretty...

    What yodie said about protein.

    I'm surprised the ER doc didn't xray you to verify the stone and its location. Kidney stone pain is not constant and it can take a long time (days, weeks) to pass a...

    If you think "everybody" agrees with bounties for sterilization, you need to find some new friends.

    I've lived most of my (long) life near the coast in So Cal, and am indeed spoiled. One of the best parts is being able to ride a bike year round. Produce and wine selection is better than 95% of...
