Description of Pictures: Neal D. Barnard - Your Body in Balance: The New Science of Food, Hormones, and Health
It’s still true that “you are what you eat,” and in his groundbreaking new book, Barnard shows how food can cause a variety of ailments—infertility, menstrual cramps, weight gain, hair loss, breast and prostate cancer, and hot flashes—as well as alleviate them. The key is hormones, and Barnard, a faculty member of the George Washington University School of Medicine and president of the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, explains how the different hormones in food can trigger reactions in the body that affect our health. He also includes a set of appealing, hormone-balancing recipes that have been tested and proven as effective as medication.

Bigger photos? To save server space, the full-sized versions of these images have either not been loaded to the server or have been removed from the server. (Only some pages are loaded with full-sized images and those usually get removed after three months.)
I still have them though. If you want me to email them to you, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
and I can email them to you, or, depending on the number of images, just repost the page again will the full-sized images.
2020 photos: Well, that was a year, wasn't it? The COVID-19 pandemic cut off most events here in DC after March 11.
Trump's handling of the pandemic was a series of disastrous missteps and lies, encouraging his minions to not wear masks and dramatically increasing infections and deaths here. As the chant goes -- Hey, hey, POTUS-A; how many folks did you kill today? The BLM protests started in June, made all the worse by the child president's inability to have any empathy for anyone other than himself. Then of course he tried to steal the election in November. What a year!
The farthest distance I traveled after that was about 40 miles. I only visited sites in four states -- Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia and DC. That was the least amount of travel I had done since 1995. Number of photos taken this year: about 246,000, the fewest number of photos I had taken in any year since 2007.
