Here is a collection of some of my articles. You can find more on EHow by searching “Susan Peterson” site:ehow.com, on Livestrong.com by searching “Susan Lynn Peterson site:.livestrong.com“, on SF Gate by searching “Susan Peterson” site:homeguides.sfgate.com, on Opposing Views by searching “Susan Peterson” site:people.opposingviews.com, or by going to my page on Natural News. The articles on Livestrong, SF Gate, Opposing Views and eHow, by the way, were done on assignment, so I chose neither topics nor titles for them. (In other words, don’t blame me for the quality of some of these titles.)
