Interventions can be the difference between life and death for a drug addict or an alcoholic. Not every person in need of rehabilitation readily accepts the opportunity to get clean and handle the issues that drove them to addiction. While some addicts or alcoholics have been so badly beaten and battered by their lifestyle that they grasp at the first opportunity to deal with their problems, others need an external influence and viewpoint in order to seek help.

Dear EarthTalk: Is there proof that fracking for oil and natural gas can by itself cause earthquakes? -- James Mitchell, Hauppauge, NY
My daughter, who is 18, recently changed from a vegetarian Diet to a vegan Diet. When she was eating vegetarian, she did eat chicken for protein. But everything else she ate was considered junk food to us. Chips, candy, sodas. Now that she is vegan she is still not eating nearly as enough vegetables or protein in order to maintain good health. I have tried to help with this by giving her a daily multivitamin and she has been taking iron supplements because she was told she was low in iron.
