Why Hair Goes Gray

I often wondered why the hair starts turning gray very early in life for some people, and yet for others, myself included, there are only few gray hairs here and there, at this later stage in our lives.

So, when I found this article with some scientific explanations, I wanted to share it with all of you, so you also stop wondering and blaming other factors for turning your hair gray.

I am not a scientist or a doctor, so I really can’t comment here, but I bet my Pharm D. children, and MD friends, might chime in with their opinion, which is sincerely encouraged and welcome.

Top Diet Myths

Not everyone loves potatoes, but who doesn’t love bread?????? How can anyone resist the aroma of a fresh baking bread……hmmm…yuuummmm………I’m sure not many of you! I love them both, with or without butter. My theory is that everything is good for you, in moderation, and in addition to some type of regular exercise (walking is my favorite).

After I read this article I decided to copy and paste it into my post to share with all of you, my wonderful readers.

Sorrel Borscht (Shchav, Shavel) – Recipe

If you like tangy flavored soups, you will love Sorrel Borscht (Shchav). My first experience with tasting this dish was in a Polish restaurant, while visiting my family in Poland. My husband really liked the slightly tangy taste of this soup, so I have been preparing it during the sorrel growing season. The main ingredient is sorrel, of course, a simple herb but not easily found in a grocery store, but rather in a specialty food shop, or a garden (your own or your friend’s).

You can find a ready made Shchav, in the Kosher section at your favorite grocery store, but it’s taste does not measure up to the fresh, home made version. Once you make it at home, you most likely will never want to buy it pre-made.
