1) Here is Stefansson's own story -- he died of a stroke, which vegitrollians love to point out... they forget to mention that he was aged nearly 83!
Born November 3, 1879 – died August 26, 1962

2) Eddie I think your description 'colour of the rainbow' just hits the spot. Since being diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes and finding your blog all of the family eat much healthier now and feel much better for it.

If you may have any food allergies, or underlying health issues these must always be taken into account. If you are a diabetic and not sure how certain foods may affect your blood sugars, test is best, i.e. use your meter.
All the best Jan
