Plants and animals assimilate carbon 14 from carbon dioxide throughout their lifetimes.When they die, they stop exchanging carbon with the biosphere and their carbon 14 content then starts to decrease at a rate determined by the law of radioactive decay.The impact of the radiocarbon dating technique on modern man has made it one of the most significant discoveries of the 20th century.No other scientific method has managed to revolutionize man’s understanding not only of his present but also of events that already happened thousands of years ago.It must be noted though that radiocarbon dating results indicate when the organism was alive but not when a material from that organism was used. Samples that have been radiocarbon dated since the inception of the method include charcoal, wood, twigs, seeds, bones, shells, leather, peat, lake mud, soil, hair, pottery, pollen, wall paintings, corals, blood residues, fabrics, paper or parchment, resins, and water, among others.

Guess what the Endocrinologist said – the same thing my family doctor and gynecologist said – once you’ll relax you’ll be fine. Fast forward to June 2011 and after following the fighter diet lifestyle for a year and following the fighter diet Facebook group and becoming educated thru Pauline Nordin’s knowledge and experience and the importance of getting blood work/salvia testing for adrenals done, I personally reached out to Pauline to ask her opinion on my internal health/female hormones.
