Nutritionists Perpetuate Hoaxes As Well!
    Remember when we were told–by the powers that be–to limit our intake of salt, coffee, quit tobacco in all forms, remember?  I was listening as I usually do, to Rush Limbaugh yesterday.  He talked of an article that seemed to disavow the salt restriction we’ve heard about for eons:

….which led me to the article Rush referenced:

This led me to some hidden, possible health benefits of a deadly, natural poison-nicotine:

….and then onto the positive health effects of the same caffeine we were told to limit in our diet:

Which ultimately led me to some natural sources to forestall the onset of Parkinson’s Disease as well as possible causes:

    As far as I know, we don’t have any history of Alzheimer’s Disease in the family.  But as a voracious reader, my mother suffered greatly from the effects of Parkinson’s Disease.  Even with large-print books and magazines, the constant, ever increasing tremors in her upper body finally made reading an impossibility.  Toward the end of her life, Mom even had to give up watching tv, although she enjoyed LISTENING while our kids watched their favorite shows.  The aforementioned URLs have been a wealth of information for me, both as general knowledge and understanding the effects as they related to my family.
