A Salute to Ginger

After waking up to slobbering kisses from my 6 month old mammoth of a puppy, I chose to pour myself a cup of java and have a glance at the daily newspaper. I don't know what it is about picking up an actual newspaper that perks my interest far more than reading it online, but I do so enjoy reviewing the fine newsprint called "The Spokesman Review".
I digress. Today's special topic read, "Health and Fitness". Score. There on the third page read a headline concerning the healing properties of ginger. As it turns out, this amazing root isn't just an afterthought to our favorite spicy tuna roll.
