  1. Re: Nutritional supplements for vegans?

    I don't know about all-in-one, but I just take a B12, aside from the iron I was prescribed before. I have flax seeds, though would probably be better off with flax oil since the grinding that has to...

    I know I get plenty of calcium, as I eat lots of broccoli, tofu, and fortified rice milk and soy yogurt. However, I don't get nearly enough vitamin D and am very sedentary right now (have only left...

    Yes, very much so. Sun exposure is good, but too much can be dangerous, especially if you have some additional condition or risk factor (like the skin cancer that runs through my family history). I...

    Re: Jala Neti Pot for nasal cleansing

    I didn't learn how until I was 10, which I learned for about a week and then couldn't remember how to co-ordinate it anymore. I always just put up a tissue to my nose.

    Of course, there should be appropriate caution to avoid the overexposure that would put one at elevated risk of skin cancer. One doesn't want ricket's, but one doesn't want a basal cell carcinoma or...
