The VP Foundation Newsletter, Number 38, was published during February. The VPF office mailed it to International members on February 14, and to members in the United States on February 15-19, 2013. Members should expect to receive their Newsletters within one to three weeks of these mailing dates.
Issue 38 features a comprehensive article on Ox-Absorb. It is the last in a series of articles on major effective treatments developed through the Pain Project. This research study was conducted by Clive C. Solomons, Ph.D., from 1986-2006. Issue 38 also pays tribute to Dr. Solomons, who passed away in December 2012.
Following up on a major article published last year in Newsletter 37, the potential significance of the soluble oxalate content of foods is discussed again. In Number 38 the VPF reports the soluble oxalate values by serving size for around 150 foods for which only total oxalate had been reported in the past.
Executive Director, Joanne Yount, reported the results of the Foundation's Twentieth Anniversary Challenge. During October-November 2012 VPF members and friends contributed $18,476 in response to two major gifts of $14,500, which had been offered as matching gifts for this special annual fundraiser, for a total of $32,976.
Eloquent recovery letters, and delicious recipes from The Low Oxalate Cookbook - Book Two, giving mg. of oxalate per serving for A Perfect Day on the Low Oxalate Diet, round out this issue.
