[IP] Re: Nutrition News forward

>>From: "Handsfield, James H. (PHPPO)" <email @ redacted>
Subject: Forward from Nutrition News on Low-Carbohydrate Diet and Weight Loss<<

I used to subscribe to Nutrition News but soon discovered the 
ideas/information differ from many other reputable nutritionists and 
medical doctors.  For anyone who is unfamiliar with the "about page 
bio" from Nutrition News website, here it is:

Siri Dharma "Siri" Khalsa became interested in nutrition while still 
an elementary school teacher. After receiving her Life Time Teaching 
Credential from the State of California, she retired from teaching 
and worked for several years writing advertising copy. In 1976, she 
was invited to create an educational handout for a large independent 
health food store, and Nutrition News was born. Ms. Khalsa received 
her B.A. from California State University at Long Beach. Her MA in 
psychology is awaiting her dissertation. She has taught kundalini 
yoga and vegetarian cooking classes for the University of California.

Gurumantra "GM" Khalsa's interest in nutrition began in the 60's 
while a student at the University of Wisconsin. In 1979, he read his 
first issue of Nutrition News and was greatly impressed. Through 
mutual friends, he was introduced to Siri Khalsa and begged for a 
subscription. At that time, subscriptions were not available to 
individuals. His persistence and his suggestions about how to make 
Nutrition News more readily available resulted in an offer to move to 
California and take on that responsibility.  Having bigger ideas and 
greater ambition than that, Mr. Khalsa married Ms. Khalsa in 1982 and 
became the publisher of Nutrition News the following year. Mr. Khalsa 
holds a B.A. from University of Illinois, Chicago Circle. He also has 
taught kundalini yoga and vegetarian cooking classes for the 
University of California. He remains an enthusiastic reader.<<

Just feel everyone should know the history/source of information they read.
