    The Raging Veggie Burger Debate

      As part of closing Primal RD and moving all my “eggs into one basket” over here on the PBM webpage, I have been saving some of my old blog posts from that site before closing it down. This was one.  So if you feel like you have read it before somewhere, it’s possible that you have.  But I like the message and it bears repeating… GRATITUDE! So, here goes… It has been months since I wrote a blog post, so it was on my to-do list today to get some new content up here.

As of this writing, there are over 335,000 cases worldwide and over 15,000 deaths.

Originally, it was thought to be only a problem for the elderly, but now we…
