Dr. R. Swinburne Clymer was in many ways a man ahead of his time, and most certainly controversial. He was attacked by the medical establishment for connecting diet with disease and mental health in his 1917 book Dietetics.

Accusations of fraud surround Dr. Clymer's career, including this 1923 edition of the Journal of the American Medical Association which claims that, "Our records fail to show that this man was ever regularly graduated by any reputable medical college." What Clymer had to say more than likely had something to do with the denouncement that he received from the medical establishment.

A few weeks ago, during a conversation about my random thoughts and anxieties, a friend of mine said, in good humour, "Your problem is that you always want to know why things happen, instead of just accepting that they've happened."

First of all, let me start by saying that my friend is absolutely correct. I do always want to understand the why of things. And not in a shallow superficial way, but in a deep, "what happened to this person when they were younger to prompt them to behave and believe in such a manner today?" kind of way.

Peter Gray has studied how learning happens without any academic requirements at a democratic school. The Boston College research professor also wrote about the long history and benefits of age-mixed, self-directed education in his book Free to Learn.

Over the years, as he encountered more and more families who had adopted this approach at home (these so-called "unschoolers" are estimated to represent about 10 percent of the more than two million homeschooled children), he began to wonder about its outcomes in that setting. Finding no academic studies that adequately answered his question, he decided to conduct his own.

There are two drills that are conducted in every public school across America, and parents should be leery as to the end game intent of these drills. The drills are popularly known as bus evacuation drill and school lock-down drills.

On the surface, these drills seem like a good idea as they appear to be designed to protect children in times of emergency. However, the manner in which some of these drills have been acted upon is very concerning. In the past couple of days, the following letter has been appearing all over the internet and the persons reporting on this development are acting as if this is something recent and novel and that we should suddenly be concerned about.

The standard American diet is a diet of chronic disease and death. Our food supply has been killing us slowly. White flour has been killing you!

Nowadays, flour is made from wheat that is being treated with fungicides, pesticides, and insecticides from seedling to storage. Since then approximately 60 different chemicals have been approved to bleach flour.

Your body makes hydrogen peroxide to fight infection which must be present for our immune system to function correctly. White blood cells are known as Leukocytes. A sub-class of Leukocytes called Neutrophils produce hydrogen peroxide.

Hydrogen Peroxide (H2O2): Dr. Mercola suggests an unusual, yet effective, trick to beat upper respiratory infections - and that is hydrogen peroxide. He states that many patients have had amazing results curing colds and flu within 12 - 14 hours by administering a few drops of 3 percent hydrogen peroxide into each ear. According to him, one should expect to hear some bubbling and possibly feel a slight stinging sensation. He instructs to wait until the bubbling and stinging subside (typically within 5 to 10 minutes), then drain onto a tissue and repeat with the other ear. More about the Flu.

There is a growing trend in the homeschooling world that breaks my heart. Chances are if you're involved in a homeschooling group {online or in real l ife}, you've seen it too. The homeschooling mommy war.

I see it everywhere- in homeschooling groups, co-ops, online groups, homeschooling blogs... Anywhere that you have a few homeschooling mothers together, you'll probably begin to see it. The competition, comparison, tearing down... It is a raging battle, and it is all based on lies.

College graduates held onto more jobs during the recession than those who only completed high school, according to a new Georgetown study. They also continue to earn more: somewhere between $280,000 and $550,000 over a lifetime.

Young people considering college should certainly be aware of these numbers, but they should also take them with a grain of salt. A statistical average provides meaningful information about a population, but not an individual. Just because many people find financial security through college doesn't mean you must also.

To my dear daughter, As you grow, many boys will enter your years. They will speak words of love and passion, of wanting you-all of you. Their sex will be lacking.

Believe me, dear girl, I know what crazy hot lovemaking is made of. Until the boy can assure you of the following, it is not true passion. If he can patiently wait for over three years. From pregnant to nursing to pregnant to nursing, with your hormones fierce, and desire often dead. "Please, just let me sleep. I am so tired." will be your common response. Until he can love you still, choose you still, it is not true passion.
