On Microblog: Celiac Disease and the Ubiquitous Gluten-Free Diet
My two cents: Wheat and many simple carbs cause a large insulin response (seems to be a down side to that over time). Not good. Saturated fats have been demonized with little science to back up the attacks. I don't eat wheat because of the insulin res[...]

On Microblog: Discount brokers
I don't think you can find a better broker for international stocks than Interactive. They do have an inactivity fee around 10 bucks if you do not do any trades for the month. I also believe they do not provide DRIPS. Check 'em out.[...]

On How do you "stop America's laziest minority from ruining OUR country?"
