Re: Maine Coast Sea Vegtables/medicinal/botanical

Hi Becky,
Your quite welcomed.  You enjoy puerto penasco.  Vitamin D from the sun is good in small doses.  Don't forget your sun Lotion.  Ha!  Sea  salt good move.  Also no microwaving food in or covered plastic containers even if they say micro wave safe.  Just added this as I was just reading some new John Hopkins update.  I guess Dioxins can expell from the containers while being microwaved.  So take a bowl and plate if your going to use the hotel nuker!
Have Fun!

Re: Maine Coast Sea Vegtables/medicinal/botanical

Ha!  It did say not to use paper towels to cover your food in the nuker but didn't mention paper plates. Chemicals are use to make both soooooo? I guess you probally should take a set of good chinaware, I mean corningwear or what ever. I wonder if we should stop using toilet paper, the world would have fun if that word got out.

Re: Maine Coast Sea Vegtables/medicinal/botanical

I eat them regularly.  My strong second to Jeff's microwave cautions.

Re: Maine Coast Sea Vegtables/medicinal/botanical

I looked on the John Hopkins website and there was a section where they deny association with the microwave dioxin link email. Here's the link to that page, http://www.jhsph.edu/dioxins

Also on the page was a link to helpful guidelines to safe practices with the microwave, in which I found interesting information that I wasn't aware of.

Another link lead to some information about phthalates:
There is another group of chemicals, called phthalates that are sometimes added to plastics to make them flexible and less brittle. Phthalates are environmental contaminants that can exhibit hormone-like behavior by acting as endocrine disruptors in humans and animals. If you heat up plastics, you could increase the leaching of phthalates from the containers into water and food.

Question: What about cooking with plastics?

Answer: In general, whenever you heat something you increase the likelihood of pulling chemicals out. Chemicals can be released from plastic packaging materials like the kinds used in some microwave meals. Some drinking straws say on the label

    Hi-
    I'm relatively new to this site. I was diagnosed with CC  on 3/11/08, one day after sustaining a pulminory embolism. Since the CC call, I've been in a tizzy (like most on here either are or were).
    I've been told I have an inoperable situation (my tumor is 7 cm), but am going to go for a second opinion.
    I've read almost every post on this site, and took note of your's in a discussion about taking chemo.
    If I recall, you said you were 59, had taken chemo, but as of April of '07,
you had decided to forego any more chemo and carry on, seeming hopeful to get one more good summer out of life.
    Now I've seen your post from Feb. of this year, and wonder how you're doing? And if there's anything else besides chemo (diet, supplements, etc.)
that you are utilizing?
    From what I've read on this site, it's probable I'll have to be making a decision about chemo very soon. I'm older (66) and as I said, my tumor is large, so maybe an initial dose of chemo would shrink it and allow for a longer chemo-free life, than if I would just say no to chemo from the outset.
I don't think you're  a doctor, and I apologize big time for seemingly placing you in a position where you might think that your opinion could be detrimental to my future. Rest assurred,  I am responsible for my decisions
and your opinion would be valued but perhaps not followed. Again, I will
make my own decision.
    Thanks for reading this, and I would truly appreciate your views.
    And , in fact, if others on here would like to add comments, they too would
be deeply appreciated. Thanks.

I meant to ask when this was first posted, but I got lazy! what do you do with the sea vegetables, what recipes do you use them in and how do they taste? Is the flavor so strong that my husband would object to having them in "normal" food or is it something we can all eat together?

Thanks.
Kris
