Essential Fats are vital to our health. They help regulate body chemistry at every level. All cells in our bodies use fats as part of the membrane that lets the right things in and keeps the wrong things out. Good fats also help keep tissues lubricated and supple. Most people are deficient in good fats because they are not present in the typical American diet, and the types of fats that are present in typical diets actually block the action of good fats.

It was a central question in Shakespeare’s play. Romeo and Juliet were from warring families, so their romance was star-crossed from the “git-go.” She downplayed their plight, cooing, “What’s in a name?” Then there was something about a rose by any other name smelling just as sweet. The same question posed today begs several “sub-questions” before it can be meaningfully answered. Who’s asking?

As a child I learned many things in school. Over the years I have forgotten much of this information. Much of it is probably there in my mind just waiting to be recalled. These memories are locked away. They are not important to remember because they were insignificant even at the time.
