Last weekend I joined a fellow at his work party. The buffet wasn't as expansive as we expected, so when I got to the end of the line, all I had on my plate was a pile of lettuce and three slices of tomato . . . until I noticed the cheese platter garnish. Kale. KALE! I eat kale. So I carefully tugged at one of the leafs with the metals tongs, trying to be inconspicuous and searching for a way to not leave a bald spot in the decor. As I was taking my second piece of kale, I glanced up directly into the eyes of a little girl, probably 8 or 9 years old. I smiled at her over the buffet table. She froze, expressionless. I laughed, and she grinned and looked down. My guess is she was thinking, "People eat that stuff?" I hope she tried it, just to see for herself. So now you know not to overlook the garnish.

The Power to Heal
"The greatest medical discovery of our time is the power within the human body to heal and rejuvenate itself. This tremendous discovery is destined to change the way we practice medicine in America. In the future, instead of cutting the body—instead of drugging it, instead of working against its natural systems, doctors will strive to feed and enhance the body's amazing power to self-heal." -Dr. Julian Whitaker, M.D.
