Here is the Probiotics 101 piece I mentioned that was on NPR today. Basically there is no conclusive evidence regarding their efficacy or which strains work best – but I am riding this train to avoid the possibility of whooping cough.
Beyond the other reason I mentioned in my vlog I also have an IronGirl tri in two weeks and I gotta say that the ickiness in my respiratory system from the CO fires smoke and this stress – I am not feeling super confident today about my abilities. It will be fun though. Above all I need to get some sleep. These last few days have not been doing it for me.
Check back here on Wednesday – I will be publishing my FIRST bi-monthly podcast wrapping up health, wellness, and green stories in the news. I am trying to make something that you can download and listen to on your commute or your time at the gym.
One more thing – I mentioned a change.org petition for wildland firefighters to be able to access federal health insurance a week or two ago. A Denver representative, Congresswoman Diane DeGette, learned of this situation and is working on a bill in the hopes that both major political parties will work to make it a reality. WOOHOO! Imagine… a change.org petition actually resulting in something. I am super jazzed.
