As I was reading through the latest medical headlines, I came across this one: “The Most Popular Diet Ever: Why Going Gluten-Free Is Risky” And I just knew you and I would have fun skewering it together. Shall we? You might ask yourself, as did I, how it could possibly be risky to give up […]


As a rule, I don’t believe in magic bullets. (I’ve been in the diet business long enough to know better.) But there is one exception. And that’s macadamia nut oil. Start using it today, and you’ll be swimsuit-ready by spring—if not well before. And no, that’s not an exaggeration. It’s a research-proven fact. In fact, […]


Words are tricky business. We use them to communicate ideas, to learn from each other, to make promises and hold each other to them. We use them to learn and share information, to get to the truth. Those are just some of the ways we use words for good in the world. But unfortunately, they […]


Yesterday I told you about the lawsuit a California woman brought against Chipotle for deceitfully claiming not to use genetically modified organisms (GMOs). The case was dismissed — despite the fact that Chipotle clearly uses meat and dairy from animals fed GMO diets and serves GMO-laden soft drinks. But according to the judge, it’s all […]


Think chemical preservatives in our food supply are unavoidable? Many people do — and if you take a look at the labels on the supermarket shelf, it’s not hard to see why. But I just don’t buy it. I think that if you work with Mother Nature — not against her — you’ll find everything […]


I guess I’m just in a myth-busting mood this week. Yesterday, it was cholesterol. Today, I’m taking on veganism — with the help of some brand new research from a team of German nutritionists. Leave it to the straight-talking, sausage-loving Germans to invoke common sense and set the record straight on this subject. They’re certainly […]


I think it’s fair to say that cancer is a game-changer. And when you’ve faced down the disease and lived to tell the tale, your priorities shift — a lot. With a new emphasis on living each day to the fullest — and, presumably, the healthiest. Or so you’d expect. But the results from a […]


The food industry is up to its old tricks again. It’s a wonder to me how they’ve been given carte blanche to pull the wool over our eyes at every opportunity — with government approval, no less.  They jump on every diet bandwagon — “low fat,” “low carb,” “gluten-free,” “all natural” — with enthusiastic abandon. […]


If another so-called health “authority” insists that meat causes cancer… or that lean meat is better than organic meat…I’m going to scream. Case in point: Six months ago, the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) proclaimed red and processed meats to be as deadly as tobacco, asbestos, and plutonium. I already explained why those […]


The research community is starting to identify all the ways in which outside influences (like the food we eat, the amount we exercise, and the chemicals we encounter) can affect our genes in both positive and negative ways. This field of study is called epigenetics. And it’s emerging as a vital aspect of health. I’ve […]
