A woman was arrested for shop lifting. When she went before the judge he asked her, “What did you steal?” She replied: “a can of peaches.” The judge asked her why she had stolen them and she replied that she was hungry. The judge then asked her how many peaches were in the can. She replied 5. The judge then said, “I will give you 5 days in jail.”

Before the judge could actually pronounce the punishment the woman’s husband spoke up and asked the judge if he could say something. The judge said, “What is it?”

The husband said, “She also stole a can of peas.”

Sugar, Honey, High Fructose corn syrup, Equal, Splendor, molasses etc

For many years the government believed that fat in the diet was the reason for overweight in the US.

After reducing fat free products ( which are higher in sugar) the obesity epidemic really has taken off. Sugar triggers insulin which deposits the sugar in the blood into fat in tissues.

Cows milk has little iron and may contribute to anemia

Earlier this week, I mentioned that chewing on ice chips may be a sign of anemia while trying to soothe the tongue.

Having a diet too high in milk products may also contribute to anemia because these products are low in iron.

Cows milk may also irritate the intestinal tract and cause small amounts of blood to be lost which further contributes to anemia.

Vitamin D Deficiency


Today someone asked me how to know if someone is deficient in Vitamin D before they have symptoms.

The best way to tell is by a lab test.

Vitamin D is in many foods we eat and we convert D to D2 from exposure to sunlight. With shorter days and less exposure this may be a problem.

Sypmtoms of D deficiency include sleep problems, fatigue and low energy levels


With people spending less time outdoors as the days get shorter, Vitamin D deficiency is more of a concern since sunlight is one of the ways that we get vitamin d thru the skins exposure to sun.

The daily recommendation for adults is at least 400 Units of D3 and 1200 mg of.calciumimages[7]

If you have any of the above symptoms- such as fatigue, low energy, depression, muscle weakness and sleep problems, ask your doctor to be tested.

Eating Ice chips may be a sign of iron deficiency Anemia

Tip of the week:

Eating ice chips may be a sign of iron deficiency anemia.

When you are iron deficiency
your tongue burns and is soothed by sucking on ice chips.

If you find yourself chewing on ice- consider having a blood test for anemia
