Can You Be Too Healthy?

I was listening to Dr. Garko on the radio the other morning, and his topic was ‘The Over-nourished Cell”.  It was quite interesting to hear someone talking about the research done that you can have too much nutrition in your body and that it can actually cause just as much damage to your health asContinue reading “Can You Be Too Healthy?”
