  1. AiR Atman in Ravi:

  3. Shauna Martin:

    On Martin's quest to prevent recurrence, she started a diet of only raw vegan foods and green juices. I would go to the farmers’ market and just buy everything that I could find and see, and I would juice half, make salads with the other half, and it was amazing how quickly I rebounded from the toxins from all the chemotherapy. My hair grew back quickly, my skin started to really glow— and then the energy, I’d never had that much energy in my entire life. After years of juicing at home, Martin left her corporate job and launched Daily Greens, a national cold-pressed green juice company. I realized what I'm most passionate about in life is trying to make other people healthy, and for me that really starts with a green juice every day, Martin said. Martin continued her mission to motivate others, and published her recipes and personal health plan in her book, Daily Greens, 4-Day Cleanse.

  5. Samuel Alito:

The turmoil wrought by Roe and Casey would be prolonged, it is far better—for this Court and the country—to face up to the real issue without further delay.
