For the third day in a row, the "healthy recipe" on the NYTimes include fava beans.
I wrote a letter to the editor about that, but of course only got a computer answer.

So I wrote about the problem of Fava beans at my BNN site.

Most of it I already knew, since we had to avoid sulfa medicines in our black patients in the US.

But when I tried to google why they haven't produced a "safe" fava bean, it seems that they are trying, but they are bee dependent, hard to pollinate by hand, and not always breeding true.

Maybe Frankenfava to the rescue? no, not unless they see money in it...
