  • MS Antibody

Researchers now have a key piece of the Multiple Sclerosis puzzle.

So, now, the scientists are trying to figure out if that antibody is directly responsible for causing the nerve damage that comes with MS or if it's a by-product of the disease.

  • Crock Pot Turkey Recipe

We've had a lot of requests for a turkey recipe that Kae Hentges shared with us on Tuesday. So, here it is again. Turkey in the crock pot which might be ideal for a small, simple Thanksgiving celebration.

  • All it takes is one turkey breast, with the bone in it.
  • 1 can of cranberry sauce.
  • 1 package of onion soup mix and a half cup of water.

Put it all in the crock pot and cook it on high for two hours, then on low for another four to six hours.

By the way, if you didn't notice. The crock pot turkey is a low fat way to gobble up on Turkey Day.
