October 2016: From the Editor

dsc09259Hi all,

Welcome to Autumn!

I know, I didn’t get a September newsletter out.  It’s been a rough last couple of months and this is the best I can do right now.

 


Upcoming Eugene Chapter Events:

Potluck Host Needed!

Eugene Chapter, Weston A. Price Foundation is an all VOLUNTEER organization.  So if you’d like to see more happen, please let us know what you’d like to contribute.

Right now we need a volunteer to host our October potluck.  If you can offer your house, please contact our potluck coordinator, Megan radzillameg@gmail.com to arrange a time that works for you.

Examples of other tasks that we do or need done see: Get Involved


 

GAPS Support Group:

Throughout 2012-2015 Cherie Anello, NTP offered regular Gut and Psychology Syndrome (GAPS) Support Group meetings. Due to an injury, she has not been able to offer these since mid 2015.

More June Newsletter

Hi all,

I’ve been getting some great info sent to me and thought I would pass it on to you.

I hope everyone is keeping cool today.  Personally I think I’m melting.  This is much too hot (especially for early June!).

Our potluck at the U-Pick farm will be June 11th if the weather cooperates.  I’ll send out a reminder midweek.

Are you planning on attending?  Just curious how many to expect.

Enjoy!

How a High-Fat Diet Helps Starve Cancer

This comes to us from our former Eugene Chapter Co-Leader, Victoria Schnieder, who many of you will remember from her work with Lisa getting the Eugene Chapter up and running, teaching classes and opening her home for potlucks.

Just so excited I had to share with all of you this interview. I posted it to my FB page, so it will be there to get back to if you choose. I seriously love great science and this is one terrific example. Please share as I do believe this will profoundly change cancer research and treatment and perhaps dis-ease across the board.
