I hear so many good things about bone broth, but my mother already makes soup for our family and she wouldn't like it if I need 8 hours of cooking to make my own. How can I replace bone broth in my diet?
I just came across Denise Minger's article on tooth problems and she mentions that the calcium to phosphorus ratio should be 2:1 in favor of calcium, but mine is currently at a 3 to one in favor of phosphorus. I just don't see how it could be... (more)
