What can gorillas teach us?
All the gorillas were dying… Over 50 years of trying to breed gorillas in zoos and nothing was working.

For decades, zoos fed the gorillas what they called gorilla biscuits. But, on top of being unable to reproduce, the gorillas were developing diseases like heart di...

Diabetes is not genetic
She was a beautiful woman. A patient who was easy for me to relate to. When she started to weep, I understood. I’ve heard stories like hers hundreds of times since the beginning of my career, back in Lake Worth in 1992. Let me tell you why I think this is important for you.

The things we’ve been telling people about diabetes being genetic is just dead wrong. Research has shown that genetic predispositions for most chronic diseases explain very little ...

FYI, Almonds Are Not Nuts. And Neither Are A Lot Of Other 'Nuts.'
We all know almonds are a healthy snack and a great dessert ingredient. But get this: almonds are not nuts. They’re seeds of a fruit.
