    $6/lb (cut and wrapped) from my favorite local producer. That's for a quarter beef. The price goes down with quantity, but I wanted half a pig and a couple lambs as well, and there's only so much...

    I believe I've read that, in order to get maximum benefit from turmeric's antiangiogenic compounds, it should be eaten with ginger or black pepper.

    How old is she? I've heard of peri-menopause symptoms that sound similar to that.
