One Way to End the EpiPen Crisis!


I'm appalled to realize that the price of the life-saving EpiPen rose at the start of the school year. This is the time when parents, students and school medical offices stock up on necessary supplies.

I want to share a potential solution with you. I just posted it to Facebook, too: The Affordable EpiPen Alternative.

I'm suspicious of the timing at the school year's start, when children must have these lifesaving items on hand.

“With Americans across the country sending their children back to school this month, many parents and schools are encountering sticker shock over the cost of EpiPens.

Here's What Good Food Can DO for YOU!


18 Av, 5776

Gosh, the Jewish year is winding up and we'll soon be in the thought-provoking month of Elul. That's when Jews spend more time than usual contemplating how to improve their characters, and doing so. Then comes Tishre, the month of the Jewish "High Holidays" of Rosh HaShana (New Year's/Time of Judgment) and Yom Kipur (the Day of Atonement for past errors).

One of the ways that people misbehave is with food. Eating for optimal health requires self-discipline, as does anything worthwhile.

Let's look at some evidence for developing necessary self-control (growth is a process, after all):
