5.0 out of 5 stars Natural Factors RxOmega 3 - a good and healthy product, 20 Dec. 2011
It is known that consumption of EPA and DHA Omega-3 fatty acids may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease. I have tried this grade liquid fish oil concentrate and I have been very satisfied with it. It does smell and taste fish, true, but i prefer the liquid form anyway, as it comes with the advantage that you just get what you need, not all the junk that usually comes together with tablets. This oil concentrate is free from toxic environmental contaminants, an important factor.

5.0 out of 5 stars great product providing "good" bacteria Acidophilus, 24 Nov. 2011
I suffer from stomach problems and digestive issues (gastro-reflux), so I have been taking several healments, in particular Okra Pepsin E3, that basically cleaned my intestine. Now I need to refurbish the good bacteria colony, so I chose this Solgar product and find it effective so far. It's in powder form, a preferable solution in my view, compared to capsules. I think it stands out in its category. Only caution: once you open the can, you need to keep it in the fridge. Although I need more time to give a final assessment, I am finding the product working well. It wont harm you anyway, in any respect (not a trivial point).

5.0 out of 5 stars very practical way to add vitamin D to diet, 21 Nov. 2011
I like these vitamin D drops, they're very useful to add to drinks or (preferably) meals. The're a little bit oily, so they mix better with food, rather than water. A drop a day is ok, as a supplement. Vitamin D helps the body absorb calcium, which is needed for our bones' health.

Normally vitamin D is produced by your own body when exposed to (enough) sunshnine. Otherwise, you need to get the vitamin from somewhere else, and the drops are a very practical way to do that.

Also suitable for elderly persons who stay inside the apartment most of the time, especially in winter months.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is an excellent product, worth the price, 21 Nov. 2011
My sister is normally shy of roll-on deodorants, she's very sensitive skin, but she loves this one. That already tells something. She says the scent is excellent.

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent Shampoo, 18 Nov. 2011
The AVALON ORGANICS Therapeutic Tea Tree Scalp Treatment Shampoo is an excellent product and I can only recommend it highly. This shampoo contains tea tree oil in significant amount and you will feel it. Other good shampoos are those containing Neem Oil, for instance. It's worth the price anyway.

5.0 out of 5 stars tastes sour, but boy, if it heals !!, 18 Nov. 2011
You can find a description of benefits and precautions of Pau d'Arco at the website [...]. Having said that, I was especially interested in the following:
"certain bacteria are affected by this compound, so help may also be available for people with issues of that nature, including: Staphylococcus aureus, Streptococcus, Helicobacter pylori (common cause of STOMACH ULCERS), Brucella, tuberculosis, pneumonia, and dysentery."

Using the Pau d'Arco it's like preparing a tea (follow the instructions that accompany the product). I just started using the product, but am already enjoying the benefits. My stomach really seems to like the Pau d'Arco! And no side effects! It tastes like a medicine, but that's not the important issue, isn't it? I am not saying that it will heal for sure all of my stomach problems, but it already seems to help, definitevely. More on it later though, after a few weeks!

4.0 out of 5 stars Useful product to help protect your teeth, 21 Feb. 2011
The flavour is good, the feeling's good, it helps prevent plaque, but keep in mind that it wont solve the problem by itself. An electric toothbrush is a must, IMO.


Freakonomics: A Rogue Economist Explores the Hidden Side of Everything (Penguin Celebrations)
Freakonomics: A Rogue Economist Explores the Hidden Side of Everything (Penguin Celebrations)
by Steven D. Levitt
Edition: Paperback

4.0 out of 5 stars Anti-conventional wisdom, 18 Feb. 2008
This is not only about economics, it is about common aspects of life, like crime and cheating. The book contains several examples of how a brilliant researcher was able to shed light on these issues. The author acts like a detective, with a bottom-up approach, relying on statistical data analysis, and often based on the role of incentives in human behaviour. The abortion case stands aside and is, in my view, revelatory. Although apparently based on a syllogism, the conclusion put forward by Levitt, regarding abortion and crime rates, is nevertheless very convincing. Other cases, like the names assigned to child by parents, are not extraordinarely fascinating, but the pattern is the same: find the explaining thread in human behaviour. A good book for students in economics and social sciences in general, a intruigueing reading for all. At the same time, there are many other good micro-economists and statisticians out there who have written papers or books using a similar approach, but who are not so notorious.

5.0 out of 5 stars For those who missed it: don't miss it anymore, 4 Dec. 2002
I totally agree that this is one of the best (and was one of the first) of the cycle of disaster movies. The setting is very original: an interior of a ship turned upside down! The cast is great (see other comments). I don't agree at all that it is "unabashedly brainless". The psychology of the movie's characters is superb; other disaster movies just don't stand the comparison. It is truly a thriller, one of those movies you get involved in, like in a game. I saw it years ago on the big screen and have been bought the DVD now because I want this movie to be part of my private collection (which is small). A final suggestion to all Amazon reviewers: please don't tell so much about the story, otherwise it isn't fun seeing the movie.
