Vegetables help stop acute pancreatitis? Imagine that! The medical community is catching up, learning things I have known for YEARS! They have finally figured out that vegetables are good for helping to control, even stop acute pancreatitis. They don’t know why, which doesn’t surprise me, but at least they have found out something that is true.

The antioxidants I use are NON-toxic, even at high doses. You should learn about them, embrace them and more importantly USE them!
