  1. I would suggest looking into vitamin k2 (not vitamin k1). There's a book called "vitamin k2 and the calcium paradox" which explains the relationship between calcium, vitamin k2, vitamin d, and vitamin a when it comes to bone formation and maintenance. There have been clinical studies done in japan...
  2. I used to have dry, cracked peeling lips constantly. I tried all kinds of moisturizers but nothing ever helped. And I always had huge chunks of skin peeling off my lips. In my case, the cause was simple although overlooked by everyone for years: mouth breathing. I habitually breathes through...
  3. I do go to Price Chopper, Food Basics and (occasionally) No Frills. They definitely have dirty conveyors, and I'm always careful there. Loblaws, Sobeys and Longos are way cleaner. Metro is hit or miss. I've seen it spotless in them sometimes, and the worst offender at others. My in laws live in oakville...
  4. I live in Toronto. Happens ALL THE TIME. I personally can't believe some of you have never put your groceries on a conveyor on which a previous customer had recently placed a bag of flour. Those bags leak like mad, and leave dust everywhere. If it's never happened to you, you must have luck on...

I also bag all my produce, because I figure a bit of flour stuck to the outside of a bag isn't as bad...

  7. Congrats on your pregnancy Ollie's Mom! We can beat the cravings :) Pretty amazing how that carb switch got triggered with pregnancy, right??

  8. I didn't say that I had an issue with distilled alcohol or canola oil... only that other people who post here say that they do. I have no idea if it is "true" or not, but who am I to disagree with their experiences?
  9. I don't have a definite answer for you, but I personally would stay away from any bbq but my own. My husband and I bought a new bbq last year when we bought our house - no glutenous substance has touched the grill, and none ever will. I have no idea if "burning off" gluten from a bbq grill would...
