The Mendocino Complex fire was the largest fire in California history, scorching nearly 500,000 acres in Lake and Mendocino Counties, displacing families, lives and communities. Aster Farms was directly affected by the Mendocino Complex Fire and received so much love and support from their local community and volunteer fire fighters.

SHOW CONTENT CORRECTION
We didn’t have Dr. V in the room to help us when we were struggling to come up with the term Vasodilators. But I did have her across from me when I was writing these show notes. :) Vasodilators are medicines that dilate (widen) blood vessels, allowing blood to flow more easily through. Some act directly on the smooth muscle cells lining the blood vessels.
