When the leaves start turning you know that crab season can’t be far behind. Are you one of the people, like my wife, that have a “shellfish” allergy? Hers is a recently acquired one, which was an unpleasant surprise, as we love to eat all kinds of shellfish. This allergy has me thinking about foods that are very good for you, foods that help fight different kinds of cancers, such as: blueberries, tomatoes, garlic, cabbage, red wine (which has resveratrol) and even turmeric (the spice). Being Italian, I’m all for tomatoes, garlic and red wine! Green tea is also very good for you but take care to brush your teeth often, as the tea can discolor your teeth, if you drink a lot of it. There was even a recent report that indicated regular teeth cleanings by a professional may lower your risk for heart attack or stroke.
Next week is Thanksgiving so it will be a short work week for our office. We will be closing around 1 pm on the Wednesday before, closed Thanksgiving and the Friday after, reopening on Monday morning. You probably won’t see a blog until the week after.
