I was glad to see the article about food and healthcare savings. Don has joined me in the Omega 3 experiment. Normally, he’s pretty skeptical about supplements and claims of eating certain things to improve health in some way. However, he’s also had longstanding, chronic problems with his knee, and tendonitis problems with his finger. Both are caused by inflammation, so he decided to try the Omega 3 routine, and both problems are disappearing. By changing the quality of what we’re eating and adding a few high Omega 3 items, we’re seeing great results.
