In February Flint, Michigan declared a "State of Emergency" in the wake of lead contaminated drinking water. Now we're hearing of lead poisoning in other areas across the United States, including Ohio, Pennsylvania and New Jersey. As a result, we are once again faced with the age-old discussion regarding the health implications of lead accumulation. We know that protecting all people from lead exposure is extremely important to lifelong good health. Children, however, are particularly vulnerable to the harmful effects of lead because they absorb lead much more readily than adults. The current controversy over treatment revolves around three questions:
  1. Who should be considered at higher risk for harm and offered treatment?
  2. What treatments should be offered to individuals with elevated lead levels?
  3. At what blood lead level burden is it appropriate to start therapy?
Unfortunately, this type of water crisis is not uncommon. People worldwide continue to be exposed to potentially harmful levels of many toxic metals that can profoundly affect their health. They face potentially enduring, serious and complicated health issues.  Perhaps the major question, especially in children, is the level of lead in the blood to cause concern. READ MORE
Born and raised in Iran, Dr. Ali Meschi left his family and his homeland to come to the United States in 1977 to pursue an education in conventional medicine at Case Western Reserve University, Ohio. But his life took a challenging but auspicious turn when the political crisis made it impossible to transfer funds, and he had to abandon his plans to become a conventional medical doctor.
Dr. Meschi moved to California in 1978, where he met and married his wife, Min. Having given up his plans in medicine, he tried a variety of other vocations, none of which were very satisfying.

Yes, the long dreary days of winter are quickly passing by and visions of spring flowers are in our heads. It is that important time for planning the spring garden. Every year I seem to feel like I am getting a bit of a late start on my garden plans. Before I know it, it's the middle of March and I have yet to start my seedlings indoors. So this year I am resolving to be more on top of this process that ultimately brings me so much joy for the summer months. Just stop and think for a moment about juicy red beefsteak tomatoes shining on the vine in the heat of a summer day. Picture a basket filled with your favorite veges, freshly harvested and ready to go into your summer dishes. Think about a beautiful flower garden that attracts bees, butterflies and hummingbirds. I hope your imagination is now running wild! Step one is going through seed catalogues to decide wh
at seeds to plant. Last year I told you about Annies and another one called Seeds.
