  • On a related topic, HaAretz had an article:
    Skin cancer increasingly likely among Jewish Israeli men
    There were some nutrition prevention suggestions on that article:
    “Dr. Niva Shapira, a nutrition counselor at the Cancer Association also noted that recent studies have shown a Mediterranean diet rich in fish and olive oil reduces the risk of melanoma.

    Food proven to help protect against radiation includes broccoli, carrots, tomatoes, kiwi, grapes, strawberries, oranges, fish, olive oil, avocado, almonds, tea, cacao and spices including rosemary and sage.

    In contrast, processed red meat; Omega 6-rich oils like sunflower, corn and soy oil; fried food; celery; parsley and figs all increase skin oxidation and skin cancer risk. “

I like the angle you shot the columbine from. It shows how long the blossom is!

Leora says

I took about fifteen shots before I got one I like. The white of the columbine makes it difficult, and the columbine flower has a lot of details. Thanks for noticing.

Rachel says

You have images of two of my favourite flowers this week - the columbine and the hellebore. I used to grow both in the garden of my old house.

Shabbat Shalom!

Ilana-Davita says

Incredible flower. Thanks for the link. Shabbat Shalom!

Jew Wishes says

What a lovely columbine is so delicate looking from your perspective.

Thank you for the link.

Shabbat Shalom!

You've been "on a roll" with floral images that would make excellent subjects for watercolors, including this columbine.

It has been awhile since I visited; I forgot how much I love this around the web series.
I voted but I think I was too late as I did not see the results at the end of clicking vote. It could be that I don't have the most recent flash on my computer due to an older os.

Carver says

The columbine is so lovely. Thank you for including my melanoma post in your weekly review. I love all the shots from your posts but the one with your daughter tugs at my heart strings. So sweet. I hope you have a very Happy Mother's Day.

BookishIma says

Since it looks like I'm not too late, I wanted to leave my Shavu'ot dairy theory: what kind of world would it be if we didn't have license to eat cheesecake guilt-free at least once a year?!

Leora says

Great...I'm putting together the post later today. Thanks for the input.
