Together they'll lose over 1200 lbs and are now calling on other First Nations to take the weight loss challenge."

He's advocating getting calories from fat, not carbs.

Look around us today, what is the big "movement" that has scientists who raise concerns being labeled as heretics and infidels? Does Anthropogenic Global Warming fit this bill? I, for one, am a heretic and I am not alone. Global Warming Payola Dear Chicken Little.......The sky is not falling smile Patty Luves yas......get into MadLab tonight
