I started this blog as a place to keep my story straight. I see from the traffic report that about 700 people a day are now reading and a hundred or so have signed up for the email alerts. I'm amazed. I'm just not sure how many of these 'hits' are real people and how many are just spam-bots or web-crawlers searching for my bank account numbers or trying to get personal information for marketers. I have a feeling the real number is around 100-150 people a day looking, but even that number amazes me. I would like to ask that every 'real person' reading this leave a comment, even if it is just to say 'hi'.
When I was a little kid, I loved my Weekly Reader and I still love on-going stories, like the "Adventures of Lew and Charlie" in the only magazine I still subscribe to, Fur-Fish-Game (if anyone wants to learn how to hunt, fish, and live off the land, FFG is a must). I'd kind of like to turn this blog into a place where you can just come and read for a while and then move on. Maybe spark some new thoughts. I don't have all the answers (yet). I'm also going to play around with my new camera and try to put some cool pictures up that weren't just stolen from other people, like this one I took yesterday:

I came up with the name Vegetable Pharm as a way to complement Dr. Grace's Animal Pharm. Grace has a great place where she explores the intricacies of the broken gut. My focus will be more on the science behind the broken gut, broken metabolism, and poor health in general by looking at the foods we eat and the reasons we eat them. If you are trying to heal a specific problem, go check out Dr. Grace's blog, she has great information there.
I had originally intended to call this blog "Pica Nation." I even had a cool mascot picked out:
But there's another kind of "pica":
OK, your turn. What would you like to see? Are comments important? What about frequency of blog posts?
Anyone interested in cancer prevention?
Oh, and if anyone is using my blog-roll list to keep up with their favorite blogs and want any added to it, just let me know. I love this feature, it saves me time in clicking on my blogs looking for updates.
Hope to hear from every person that reads this to the end, even you lurkers who lurk EVERYWHERE and never, ever comment--you know who you are, just give an anonymous nod.
