Happy New Financial Year to you! Hope the last one finished well for you and you have big plans for this new one. I have a special mention for you this week - probably very much on my mind as a have a client and the wife of an email buddy both fighting cancer at present. In researching for an article on nutrition I came across this page: Digestive Enzymes and Cancer http://www.healthrecipes.com/food_enzymes.htm A friend of ours has been extolling the virtues of raw food, specifically sprouts, for some time. Seems there’s more than a “grain” of truth in it.

Using Google for Definitions

Doing some research on nutrition, health, aging etc. and just learned a really, really useful trick. If you want to know the definition of a word just type the word define followed by a colon, like this: define:dna Google gives you a page long list of definitions for the word you entered. You can then select the one that best fits or combine several to get what you need to know. Great time-saver.
