Diet for a smaller planetary population?

From Concerned Citizen, on the Lyme Disease Sentinel blog:

One worked at a day care center and is going to hand them out to all the young mothers. No sooner I got home, Ann Daschel, an editor of Age of Autism, alerted me to this excellent TV news coverage–and it is fair and balanced–and focuses more on the right to choose and vaccine-injured children. This is in West Virginia–one of the strictest vaccine before education [states] in the nation.  (I have clipped the news story under fair use for education under the copyright law.)…” Continue reading
