Books To Read
While attending the Texas Pharmacy Association meeting recently, we attended a luncheon where the speaker was very passionate about how big companies are selling out our people.  (People like you, your grandparents, your chidren and your grandchildren) in order to make those big dollars.  She used to be a top marketer to doctors, to inform them about new drugs her company was producing.  If you want to read her book, the title is: Confessions of an RX Drug Pusher by Gwen Olsen.  Find out why those huge fines that drug companies pay is just the cost of doing business.

Recently we were watcing Texas Country Reporter on channel 21 when they did a story about a couple in San Antonio who garden in order to feed themselves and now are furnishing seeds to others all over the country.  To feed a family of four in the backyard costs them $1.72 and that includes envelope and stamp.  They have furnished 50,000 gardens in the U.S. so far.  For more info, check out  Also more info can be found on he Texas Country Reporter.  Look for show entitled "A Growing Conern" shown July 4 on Channel 21.
A lady came in recently and was telling me she could control her blood sugar through diet except her morning numbers were still a little high.  Then she remembered the article about salt having sugar added to some brands.  She checked and yes, hers had it added.  She had low blood pressure so she added salt to everything.  She changed brands to one that didn't have sugar and finished bringing her morning numbers down.  So please read your labels, sugar is sneaky!
