Grand Rounds Coming! Theme: Diet and Food

Topics: Wellness and Health

Happy new year! will host Grand Rounds early early a.m. on January 9, 2007; the deadline is this Sunday January 7, 2007 at 3 p.m. PST; here are the original submission guidelines. The theme is Diet and Food.

Diet and food in medicine usually mean disease, but sometimes that’s upside down: spicy foods don’t cause stomach ulcers (bacteria do), and chilies may actually help heal ulcers.

This Grand Rounds will serve upside down cake: your stories, your recipes, even your YouTube posts that show diet and food as Information, Inspiration, Prescription, Pharmaceutical, Treatment, Reassurance and Cure. In short, as medicine. Posts on food as Allergen or Intolerance also encouraged: there is always a flip side.

Please send me an e-mail to /grandrounds /at / with your blogger name, *post name*, post URL, and a one line pithy yet juicy description of your post. Please put your *post name* in the subject line. And thank you!

Like Musings of a Distractible Mind’s Grand Rounds this week, Diet and Food will be artisanal, distilled in small batches and worth the trek, rather than a highly processed and poorly identifiable steam table (delight).

For future Grand Rounds hosts, here are great descriptions of how to organize and host from Dr Anonymous, Emergiblog, and Tundra American Dreams.
