Health Benefits of Citrus Zest

New data demonstrating a DNA-protective agent present in at least some fruits and vegetables found that the agent was heat-sensitive and determined it was not vitamin C. This was confirmed in a study that tried vitamin C directly and found no effect on DNA protection or repair of DNA strand breaks.

The Gift of Cameron

I met Cameron when he was 11.

He was in remission from cancer, but was still dealing with the physical effects of the grueling treatment he’d received for years. Cameron had endured more than his share.

His mom hoped I could help Cameron with some of the worries he still carried in spite of the cancer being gone.

I was nervous. How could I help this little guy who had experienced so much pain? What could I possibly contribute? My training didn’t seem like it could be enough for him.
