Interesting question. I think it depends alot on who you are addressing and who is doing the addressing!
It seems teenagers refer to each other as "kids", when my peers would have been insulted to be called such; we considered ourselves past the "kid" age.
And now that I come from a slightly (!) older perspective, I find myself addressing everyone as "hon" like the old lady I swore I'd never be! But you can get away with it addressing strangers ONLY as you age.
I imagine you know what your own age group prefers, but if not, always err on the side of caution..."chick" is rather juevenile...I know, as I also used it when "chick"-age myself! It seems that young people also address both sexes as "guys" (but so do I, leftover from my youth) and lately, "dudes" which was reserved for dudes in my youth.
But you can't go wrong with "woman" or "lady" for anyone over 18-21. I always approach a group of women by referring to them as "ladies".
Gilda I wanted to share this with you from an article online...
"People with allergies and food sensitivities almost always suffer from impaired digestion and a "leaky gut." Heal both with homemade bone broths rich in gelatin, cartilage and collagen." "However, gelatin is precisely what the turn-of -the-century doctors ordered, not only to heal digestive disorders and the intestinal mucosa but all allergies."
whats the difference between hydrolyzed collagen & HA? Interested in ordering hydrolyzed collagen powder which claims is high in gelatin and cartilage.
No wonder Shark Liver oil was extreme helpful with my gut previously, because It has cartilage and protein. I think I need to get some again
The author on the connective tissue disorder site recommends "making" one's own HA by using bones and other animal parts(all that contain cartilage,etc) to make a stock/broth and eating it everyday.
And HA DOES make collagen (hence the incredible skin noted on the villagers I talked about), but I don't know anything about hydrolyzed collagen... sounds very similar if not the same...where do you get it?
