By Kristen Aiken Tanisha Gordon doesn’t see what white people love so much about cottage cheese. Or salads, especially when they’re topped with fussy ingredients like candied almonds, pickled carrots or Brussels slaw. Gordon is a 37-year-old employee at an IT company in the Washington, D.C. area, and until recently, her diet was deeply saturated with fast food ― McDonald’s, Taco Bell, you name it.

The procedure is performed in conjunction with cancer surgery. It's used only for people who have cancer that has spread inside the abdomen, because they are the group most likely to see benefits from this treatment.HIPEC is a unique treatment designed to combat cancer that has spread inside the abdominal cavity, such as advanced or metastatic cancer of the colon, ovary and appendix.

We Are All Going To Need Some Weather Therapy The reason I bring this up: our tortured April has the entire state in need of emergency therapy. Looking at the weather maps I don't know whether to laugh or weep. Winds will gust over 40 mph, creating blizzard conditions south/west of the metro area Saturday. Never tell a Minnesotan not to travel, but personally, I'd have a Plan B for Saturday. 40s return next week; a sun angle similar to late August melts most of the snow by midweek. I'm sorry.
