I love “The Starch Solution”–VIDEO

Dr. McDougall does it again! I’ve absolutely adored McDougall’s dietary advice. Using it, I’ve been drug-free for over nine years! I used to have more health problems wrong with me than I can even remember now. It’s truly been a miracle, and I swear to the world that it saved my life–literally. Yet…I’ve still had […]
