    boys in the choir, "I'm ok you are ok and all of us in the choir telling
    each other we are ok is; well er ah OK". This from another ng:

    "The benefits, or otherwise, of using Naturopaths was discussed recently here.

    published Tuesday by the Wall Street Journal. The newspaper received a copy of the medical
    examiner's report from a physicians group that promotes a vegetarian diet. ... The Journal reported
