Blood. It’s in you to eat.

At least, that’s what my story in The Coast examines. Blood, tripe and all sorts of offal goodies are becoming more and more commonplace in Halifax eateries and around the world. Many thanks to Deep End Diner Eddie Lin for his quote in the aforementioned article.

Speaking of all things vital, I recently had the opportunity to write two separate stories for Xtraabout health issues and health care. The first was a story about Shelley Taylor, who runs Pass The Herpes, a blog and forum dedicated to the discussion of the disease and the stigma surrounding it. I also wrote a profile about prideHealth, an organisation based in Halifax that is looking to make things better and easier for queer people to access health care. I had previously written about prideHealth in my daily blog.
