"He proved to the world that a "true history" could be far more engrossing and enlightening than "accepted fiction." The history of food (and drink) has only become a respectable scholarly subject in recent decades, at least in the Western world. In North America and Great Britain, we have long suffered from puritanical prohibitions against the discussion of food while at table—and elsewhere, for that matter. Although food, sex, and mortality are the three great givens of human existence, earlier generations of academics generally avoided these topics as not quite respectable."

"By working closely with the USDA we were able to make our dreams come true. When Larry and I finally made our way home that night there was a strange fax waiting for us. One of the European breeders whom we had bought sheep from had heard a rumor that the USDA had killed the sheep. We shook our heads in disbelief, not giving it much thought, and reassured the shepherdess her sheep were alive and well. The sheep world is a small world, and word of our successful importation traveled quickly."

"Ours would be a true small family-owned and family-operated business. In March 1995 we set off for the Great Lakes Dairy Sheep Symposium and the Wisconsin Sheep Breeder's Conference in Madison, Wisconsin. This would be the first sheep gathering the entire family attended. Before we had driven half an hour, the bickering started in the backseat. Francis was winding up his sisters. Jackie wanted to sleep, and he kept talking. When I turned around, Heather seized her opportunity. "He's taking up too much room! He's on my side!" she whined."

"Seeing two of their companions now outside, the others quickly followed in true sheep fashion. Heather and Jackie ran to open the gate and herd them into the warm, gently lit barn. After a quick perusal of their new home, the ewe lambs settled into a pile, ready to sleep for the night. They had formed bonds with each other over the past three months in quarantine and now seemed quite content to be together in this quiet, cozy environment."

"I think this is true of many farm families, because everyone has to work together for a living. We wanted a bright, airy, affordable building that would be large enough to host our cheesemaking courses and decided to use a solar-style building with breathable fabric on the sides and exhaust fans on either end to ensure a good air flow on warm summer days. I was staining clapboards in the visitor's center on a summer's day when I noticed Jackie going back and forth between Heather and Francis, whispering and writing something on a piece of paper. This continued throughout the afternoon."

"Which statement is NOT true? (a) 60 percent of the body weight of adults is comprised of water. (b) Fat contains about 90 percent water. (c) Lean tissue contains three-quarters water. (d) Fat contains about one-quarter water. 2. The body loses the least amount of water through: (a) The lungs. (b) Skin diffusion. (c) The feces. (d) The kidneys. 3. Which statement is NOT true? (a) The minimum amount of water needed daily by kidneys is one half-quart. (b) The minimum amount of water to meet needs is two and one half quarts."

"The pavo in the dish's title is the Mexican-Spanish word for turkey, a Mesoamerican domesticate, to be sure: mole is a creolized version of the Nahuatl molli, (sauce); and poblano refers to the place of origin of the dish and its sauce, the Colonial Puebla de los Angeles; this beautiful city, unlike others in central Mexico, has no Aztec foundations—and neither does the dish, regardless of what food writers may say."

"In his Secret Memoirs for the History of the Republic of Letters, the writer Louis Petit de Bachaumont related the scandal thus: Friends write from Marseilles that M. le comte de Sade ... gave a ball. ... Into the dessert he slipped chocolate pastilles so good that a number of people devoured them. There were lots of them, and no one failed to eat some, but he had mixed in some Spanish fly. The virtue of the medication is well known. It proved to be so potent that those who ate the pastilles began to burn with unchaste ardor and to carry on as if in the grip of the most amorous frenzy."

"Ulett tested its ability to relieve the pain of identical mild electrical shocks in volunteers treated in four different ways: (l) with needles alone placed randomly around the body at sham points, (2) with needles at false points with electrical stimulation, (3) with needles alone at true points and (4) with needles at true points with electrical stimulation. The needles at the sham points produced no significant pain relief. The needles at the true points did. But compared with needles alone at the true points, true-point needling with electrical stimulation produced twice as much relief."

"In winter, sitting at a great fire and smoking two hours costs no more than two soldi; drinking, one pays for what one has drunk.71 Interior of a typical London coffee or chocolate-house c. 1700. Charles 11 had unsuccessfully tried to suppress these establishments which he considered hotbeds of sedition. As the historian Richard Dunn reminds us,72 this was exactly the period that the two great political parties were forming: the Tories, who were "divine right" royalists, and the Whigs, who were generally anti-Stuart."

"Snacking is most often recreational eating, without true hunger present. It has negative effects, including the following. 1) Snacking usually results in the consumption of a higher amount of calories each week. 2) Snacking means you will not experience true hunger before meals, thus diminishing enjoyment of food. 3) In animal studies, eating less frequently results in increased lifespan. 4) The digestive tract needs adequate rest to build up digestive enzymes for proper digestion. 5) Detoxification and cellular repair occur more efficiently when the body is not digesting."

"Well, this just in: It now appears that none of it was true.We sincerely regret the error. No, the admissions of error have been muffled, and the mea culpas impossible to find. But read around in the recent scientific literature and you will find a great many scientists beating a quiet retreat from the main tenets of the lipid hypothesis. Let me offer just one example, an article from a group of prominent nutrition scientists at the Harvard School of Public Health."

"So potentially much was at stake for our health and well-being when the government threw its weight behind a wholesale change in the American diet. true, it was entirely possible that the nation would have chosen simply to ignore the Dietary Goals and go on eating as it had. But that's not what happened. Instead, the goals were taken seriously, and one of the more ambitious nutritional experiments in our history got under way."

- Michael Pollan, In Defense of Food: An Eater's Manifesto (Get the book.)

"For while it is true that Americans post-1977 did shift the balance in their diets from fats to carbs so that fat as a percentage of total calories in the diet declined (from 42 percent in 1977 to 34 percent in 1995), we never did in fact cut down on our total consumption of fat; we just ate more of other things. We did reduce our consumption of saturated fats, replacing them, as directed, with polyunsaturated fats and trans fats. Meat consumption actually held steady, though we did, again as instructed, shift from red meat to white to reduce our saturated fat intake."

"I mean, what other animal needs professional help in deciding what it should eat? true, as omnivores—creatures that can eat just about anything nature has to offer and that in fact need to eat a wide variety of different things in order to be healthy—the "What to eat" question is somewhat more complicated for us than it is for, say, cows. Yet for most of human history, humans have navigated the question without expert advice. To guide us we had, instead, Culture, which, at least when it comes to food, is really just a fancy word for your mother."

"The boys believe this to be literally true, and become extremely frightened. Usually they take refuge with their mother, mother's mother, or some other favorite female relative, for they know that the men are organized to see that they are taken to the men's ground, where the great snake is bellowing. The women wail over the boys ceremonially; this is to keep the great snake from swallowing them." n—Now regard the counterpart from the unconscious. "One of my patients," writes Dr. C. G. Jung, "dreamt that a snake shot out of a cave and bit him in the genital region."

"Grant me a proof, my father, by which all may know me for thy true son." The great god set his glittering crown aside and bade the boy approach. He gathered him into his arms. Then he promised, sealing the promise with a binding oath, that any proof the lad desired would be granted. 50 Matthews, op. cit., pp. no-nsj. What Phaethon desired was his father's chariot, and the right to drive the winged horses for a day. "Such a request," said the father, "proves my promise to have been rashly made." He put the boy a little away from him and sought to dissuade him from the demand. "

"That's true, too, and it certainly seems impressive. But the absolute reduction in likelihood is what is meaningful to you ?and that's 2 percent. NEVER LET ANYONE TALK OF RELATIVE-RISK REDUCTION WITHOUT DEMANDING A STATEMENT OF ABSOLUTE-RISK REDUCTION. Is this 2 percent reduction in absolute risk of not suffering a fatal heart attack in five years worth your taking Pravachol every morning? In the previous chapter, I point out that my likelihood of surviving for five years after my first heart attack was about 95 percent. If I take a daily baby aspirin, the likelihood rises to about 97."

"There are knowing charlatans, but there are also people who are true believers in the treatments they espouse, even though those treatments may be totally ineffective. They may latch onto an idea that makes sense to them and try it on a few patients. Because of their belief in their idea, they may think it works even when it doesn't. Sometimes their profound belief in the treatment is so persuasive that the placebo effect takes over, and the patient actually believes there have been positive results. Would that the medical profession could bottle this effect."

"Ulysses and the Sirens mae;" he looks more closely, and observes that her elbows and knees bend the wrong way; this reveals her true character, and he flies. If a young man can strike the temptress with a dracaena leaf she turns into her own shape and glides away a snake." But these very snakes, the mae, so greatly feared, are believed to become the familiars of those who have intercourse with them.48 Such demons—at once dangers and bestowers of magic power—every hero must encounter who steps an inch outside the walls of his tradition."

"With SNRIs, the opposite is also true: treating the pain of FM can also help relieve depression. What is unclear in all these studies is the role of depression in worsening pain and fatigue, but using these drugs bypasses that question. When the depression lifts, you'll feel better and be more able to cope with your pain. That, of course, may also help eliminate the pain. Prior to duloxetine's becoming available, my second step in treating pain was to use low doses (10 mg to 25 mg) of the old-fashioned tricyclic antidepressants (TCAs)."

"How ten centers in two countries recruited thirty-six patients is beyond me. If true, this means that ten different doctors ran the trial, and each center had an average of only four patients—very unusual indeed. Usually treatment trials seek to recruit substantially more patients from each site. And it got still more complicated. Some of the patients, it turns out, were put on a high dose and some on a lower dose of Fibronol. By now, you should be as confused as I was. Then I turned to the objectives of the study. One was to demonstrate the safety of Fibronol."

"It was a fathet's dream come true. She was fantastic, seemingly right there in Spanish Harlem, standing on a fire escape on the second floor of a tenement building. At intermission, though, I walked up to the stage—a set design, painted on a wall just a few inches thick. From this perspective, it was obvious the stage was nothing but an illusion. When I went back to my seat for the second act, however, the drama and music mesmerized me again; I could swear it was real. The "real world" is such an illusion. Look at what you "see" in the room around you."

"Protection against vaginosis and yeast infections Summary There can be no true health or recovery from disease unless you have colonies of over 100 trillion beneficial microorganisms flourishing in your intestinal tract, aiding in digestion, absorption, the production of significant amounts of vitamins and enzymes, and working to crowd out all harmful bacteria—allowing them no place to gain a foothold. Supplementation with a good probiotic is mandatory to raise your baseline of health."

"Whether or not it were true, your believing that you were on the active drug by itself could make you feel better and thus confuse the actual end result. One unfortunate reality of drug trials is that the company sponsoring the research usually wants the results yesterday. After all, trials cost money, and pharmaceutical companies want a quick answer to the question: Does the drug work? The results of the modafinil trial show why using a placebo is so important. In our study, a large number of patients were involved at two sites and a smaller number at three other sites, including our own."

"It is important to recognize the difference between true dandruff and a buildup of hair products, however. Although dandruff is not contagious and is rarely a serious ailment, it can be embarrassing and surprisingly persistent. Enzymes can be used to improve the functioning of the sebaceous glands by improving the body's ability to digest fats, improve nutrient absorption, reduce excess yeast in the body, and improve the health of the skin."
