Adventures with Dr. Phil and The Doctors

Update: Scroll to the bottom to see my segment on The Doctors, and a behind-the-scenes video, too. Last week I went to Hollywood to film a five-minute segment on the daytime TV show The Doctors. The show’s been a huge supporter of our team at Rodale, regularly featuring Liz V. from Prevention and Dave Z. […]

French Toast—an Organic Breakfast Pleasure

French Toast—an Organic Breakfast Pleasure

It’s time for a break from my relentless “manifesto-ing.” It’s time for breakfast! After all, it’s hard to keep thinking big, hard thoughts without good food in your belly. My 3-year-old always asks for French toast with “makeup syrup.” That’s maple syrup to the rest of us. As I was making it for us this […]

This week is Spring Break, but instead of going on a family vacation, I am taking my family to work with me in California.

Diabetes and Endocrine Disruption: Connecting the Dots

Diabetes and Endocrine Disruption: Connecting the Dots

I consider myself fairly well-read, and educated about health. I’ve researched the endocrine disruption effects of chemicals—that is, the ways that certain chemicals interfere with the production function of various hormones in our bodies. So I was shocked and surprised last week when I had an endocrine disruptor epiphany in the burn center at the […]

The Real Problem with Swine Flu

The Real Problem with Swine Flu

Everyone is worried about swine flu—as well we should be. If things escalate to pandemic level (which they may), we will all be in big trouble (although washing hands with soap and water is still the best defense). As you can read today on Rodale.com, some think the Mexico outbreak is a result of factory […]
