Hey mg,

The good 'ol artificial kind don't sound so good either.

" .... The demand for vanilla flavoring has long exceeded the supply of vanilla beans. As of 2001, the annual demand for vanillin was 12,000 tons, but only 1800 tons of natural vanillin were produced. The remainder was produced by chemical synthesis. Vanillin was first synthesized from eugenol (found in oil of clove) in 1874

Uggg....the things that we eat and don't even know it.

Celiac brings on a new awareness, doesn't?

I don't want to eat a cloned cow or whatever, either. <_<

Yuck ... maybe it's a good thing that we don't know some things, or we will soon all starve. :lol: That really is gross!

We urge all doctors to take time to listen to your patients.. don't "isolate" symptoms but look at the whole spectrum. If a patient tells you s/he feels as if s/he's falling apart and "nothing seems to be working properly", chances are s/he's right!
