International ME/CFS and FM Awareness Day Is On May 12, 2018
Thomas Hennessy, Jr., selected May 12th to be our international awareness day back in 1992. He knew that May 12th had also been the birthday of Florence Nightingale. She was the English army nurse who helped to found the Red Cross as well as the first school of nursing in the world.

    One thing that was missed is the value of micronutrients. Locusts keep eating till they eat enough protein. Thats the switch that turns if off. Our soils and processed foods, and foods that sit for many days before being eaten, are lower in micronutrients than ever before. If we are sensitive to that, then we are in a bind. If each generation needs to eat less calories to maintain normal weight, but each generation needs to eat more food to get the nutrients we need, then we will tend to optimize the two, I suspect. A return to organically grown local food might help with this though.
