That's so good to know! Thanks!

I don't win races, but I always cross the finish line. I'm not fast, but I try my best to become faster. I don't have sports endorsements or earn a paycheck, but that doesn't stop me from running. My pace does not define me. Just because "professional" does not precede "athlete" in describing me doesn't make my running any less valuable. I am an everyday athlete; leading a normal life, but with big goals and dreams.

THIS WEEK IN THE HSI HEALTHIER TALK COMMUNITY

Want to go organic but don't want to pay the higher prices? On the Healthier Talk website, alternative medicine pioneer Jonathan Wright, M.D., offers some tips in response to this question about organic foods...

Q: I'd love to go completely organic, but I just can't afford it. Are there any fruits and vegetables that are okay to buy the non-organic versions of?

Dr. Wright: Several years ago, the USDA and FDA examined pesticide levels of various produce items, and found that many items sold in supermarkets have unacceptable levels of contamination. It's definitely in your best interest to try to switch to organic versions of these highly contaminated produce items.

However, there are some fruits and vegetables that didn't rank as high on the pesticide scale. These items are ones that are likely safe to eat simply after a thorough washing. The list of the produce that had the lowest levels of pesticides when tested included:
Asparagus
Avocados
Bananas
Broccoli
Cauliflower
Corn (sweet)
Kiwi
Mangos
Onions
Papaya
Pineapples
Peas (sweet)

On the Healthier Talk website you'll find a wide range of insightful commentary from the most respected doctors and researchers in the field of alternative health care. In addition, you're invited to join in by posting your own comments following any individual article or video.

Hospitals are terrific for traumatic care; for acute care. They do a really, really good job in saving lives when it’s a sudden bleeding emergency. But in terms of chronic care, they’re terrible; (that is) in terms of the illnesses that most people have, endure, that cost the most money, that last the longest and ultimately die from. -Dr. Andrew Saul
