What I've been reading, writing, thinking about and indulging in this week
Talcum Powder Toxicity: Johnson & Johnson has to pay over $72 million dollars in settlements to women who developed ovarian cancer from regular use of talcum powder. This story is made even worse given that companies have known since the 1980s about the talcum-cancer connection.
Traditional Chinese Medicine insights into healthy skin: We've been focusing on healthy skin all month on TCMTalk, the livestream talk show I host with Denise Cicuto of Cicuto Acupuncture. Denise wrote a great article (and infographic) explaining the Chinese Medicine understanding of skin issues and how to support your skin with diet.
I'm fighting a late winter cold that's going around. This weekend, I might work my way through this list of cold remedies from around the world. Usually I simmer green onions and ginger in chicken broth for a minute or two, a traditional Chinese remedy that's amazingly effective.
Have a great weekend!
