Unsaturated fats have one or more hydrogen atoms missing from the carbon backbone. They are liquid at room temperature. Monounsaturated fatty acids have one hydrogen pair that is missing from the carbon backbone. They are liq...

Zoo cure heals humans
One of the highlights of my trip to Tanzania in 2012 was visiting the Ngorongoro Crater and Conservation Area. They have the largest lions on the planet. I got very close as part of my invitation by the director of park services. Along with elephants, lions, gazelles and zebras, I got to see wildebeest, the almost-extinct black rhino and giraffes. I was lucky enough to photograph this giraffe on my trip to Ngorongoro Crater in Tanzania. I am always awed when I see these magnificent creatures in their native environment. They thrive the same way they did thousands of years ago. But when these animals are tak...

Cholesterol Vaccine?
I saw this headline not long ago and it made my jaw drop. “Daily statin use to lower cholesterol may soon be a thing of the past.” I thought maybe — finally — the war on cholesterol was coming to an end. It wasn’t. Instead, it turns out Big Pharma is doubling down on cholesterol drugs. They’ve found a new multi-billion dollar scam. Let me explain… Statins have been blockbusters for the drug companies. Worldwide sales hit $34 billion in one year. But most of these drugs have come to the end of their patents. Profits are starting to dip. Big Pharma needs another patent to replace...

Worse than liquor for your liver
Most people think liver disease only happens to alcoholics. But the truth is that being overweight or obese actually puts you at a much higher risk for liver damage than alcohol. In fact, alcohol contributes to only 6% of liver damage. But obesity contributes to 52% of liver disease. And if you’re obese, you’re 400% more likely to develop liver damage than a normal-weight individual.1 That’s why about 30% of people in America have some form of chronic fatty liver disease. It’s called non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). NAFLD causes painful swelling and scarring of the liver.  And I blame...

At the top of the dual slide, 4-year-old Brayden Austin is buzzing with energy, excited to go careening down to the bottom. Yet he waits patiently until a towheaded boy joins him on the neighboring chute. Two-year-old Camden Glover is a little nervous.
