    It seems to me we need to identify actions to take to redress the balance and I have given these a lot of thought over the years.

    It is by sharing and talking together as we did at the ORFC to make things happen and finally here is an amazing man taking a engineering approach to understanding the body and how to heal it you will also notice he mentions pasture fed meat.
