I’ve gotten lots of good questions lately. But, I haven’t had time to track them. Here are some of the few I’ve just gotten:

*I need arguments refuting Rachel Carson’s environmental arguments.
*Is the rainforest a carbon dioxide sink or source?
*Where are books on kinematics?
*Do you have Mario Kart for the Wii yet?
*Is there a lot written about Wasson’s teaching principles?
*Where is coffee produced and what happens to it?
*What are the problems with eating too much soy? [This one I answered with the CSPI and the Mothering articles about soy, as well as a search of our fee based databases.

Man, I found this blog too late! I hope to someday find updates, and hopefully an answer to the important question: is the rainforest destroying our environment?!

I’ll happily take on the soy question in my blog: planithealthier.wordpress.com. Give me a few days. In the meantime, I can recommend http://www.mercola.com and http://www.westonaprice.org to get you started on some of the reasons.

I should warn you that most of these questions are from patrons who came, got an answer, and probably won’t be back. I’d love to have good answers out there, but mostly I answer them here. Sometimes I do such a bad job, I look for more information after they leave. But, I try not to let that happen!
