"Fruits and Vegetables are Trying to Kill You"

Should we really be taking antioxidants? Here is an article that made me question what I always thought was established truth. The author offers reasons to believe that antioxidant supplements may actually interfere with nature's plan for protecting us. He makes the case that we do best to eat plants that have been subjected to stressors such as grazing or drought and developed compounds to survive these threats. When we consume these plants, they stress us as they would other grazers and we are strengthened as a result.

All about food and coronavirus

Thanks to Christel in Germany for sending me this very interesting link relating coronavirus and food. In an 11-minute video, Dr. Neal Barnard explains how our current virus is the great-grandchild of earlier viruses and how viruses originate in animal agriculture. He also explains how bacterial infections are carried into our kitchens in the bodies of chickens, and why antibiotic resistance is also a by-product of animal agriculture.
