Vitamin Shorts

Add even just a drizzle of olive oil to your veggies or you won't be able to absorb their fat soluble vitamins (I knew there was a reason I didn't like fat free dressing): Get The Most Nutrition From Your Veggies from NPR


The Sacramento Bee reports on a study that found "not only do many brands of multivitamins contain significantly more or less of certain ingredients than claimed, but an alarming percentage are also contaminated with lead". The article gives tips on buying vitamins, how to get more vitamins from food, and talks about who really needs to be taking vitamins in the first place.


Get your Flintstones or Transformers Children's Ecstasy in Texas. (Star Community Newspapers Article). No, they're not available at Wal-Mart, but some tablets shaped like some popular children's vitamins have been hitting the streets. Getting past how absolutely horrible it would be for a child to be accidentally dosed, I love the police description of ecstasy's effects: "causes nausea, blurred vision, chills and/or sweating"... "increases in heart rate and blood pressure". Aside from completely avoiding the effects that people actually take the drug for, it's word-for-word from here.

In 1789, the governor of Australia granted land and some animals to James Ruse in an experiment to see how long it would take him to support himself. Within 15 months he had become self sufficient. The area is still known as Experiment Farm. This is my Experiment Farm to see how long it will take me to support myself by writing.
