Wow, I'm intrigued! Too bad my library system doesn't have any of his works.
Little Caesars is great; I've never understood why people diss it. Sure, it may not be fancy, but the price is nice and it pizza! What's not to like?
He's good authors. His first book used to be free on Amazon, and I am not sure when that changed.
Little Caesars is actually my favorite pizza place. I love their cheese blend and price. <3

Dear Dr Cho,
Overconsumption of salt / sodium
The terms salt and sodium often are used interchangeably, but sodium actually is an ingredient of table salt, which also contains chloride and iodine. Many foods, such as those that come from salt water like sea vegetables and seafood, contain significant amounts of sodium. The most common dietary sources of sodium are processed food and added table salt. Excessive salt intake can cause a range of side effects, including inflammation and high blood pressure.
Stevia may offer several health benefits. It doesn’t trigger an insulin response and so can be used as a sweetener by diabetics. Also, its natural, low-calorie sweetness may help reduce Americans' unhealthy, weight-inducing dependence on sugar, fructose, corn syrup and other high-calorie sweeteners (lead by overconsumption of soda in the USA). Stevia does not cause cavities. Used for centuries in South America. - Livestrong.com
I already knew the salt/sodium thing, but I'm not sure how it is relevant to our conversation. I'm pretty confident that all sodium we consume is sodium chloride, which isn't just table salt but all salt: kosher, sea, Himalayan, ETC. They have various other trace chemicals, but sodium chloride...is salt.
Excessive salt intake is bad, sure...but it won't kill you if you drink enough to flush it out of your system. What I said stands. As long as you don't suffer from hypertension already or a predisposition to it, your kidneys have your back. By the by, high blood pressure and hypertension are not the same things. Hypertension is persistent HBP, and it's a problem. HBP...not so much. Your blood pressure raises when you pick up something heavy or laugh hard.
I use Stevia all the time, and I am very aware of its touted health effects. But here's the thing: stevia not only doesn't taste like sugar--so it won't reduce anyone's 'dependence' on sugar--tobacco and coca leaves have also been used for centuries in their native habitats. Long term usage does not equate to healthy, especially considering the vast gulf between eating a plant and using something that has been processed in a factory.
Now...if you want to continue this, that's OK. But we need to do it in my thread, and not poor Kwan's, who has put up with a thread jack long enough. XD
