It’s almost spring break time. My college daughters will come home in 10 days, and I’m sure the first thing they will do is sleep for about 14 hours. Just like last year.
They both take EpiCor. I send a long-term supply with them when they go back to school from summer or winter breaks. [...]
I used to go to a chiropractor several years ago. I thought he might help my snoring. After several adjustments, which were done after a

thorough overview and X-ray of my frame, it was making a difference. That’s why I put a lot of stock in chiropractic. Many people think [...]
Last time, I wrote about the new Human Proteome Project, an ambitious global effort to map the protein structure of the human body. Proteins are the essential operating systems for cells. There are 5,000,000 types of proteins that are programmed and turned on and off by genes. Many classes of immune cells are proteins or [...]
The latest research promising to usher in a new era in understanding human health and disease involves something similar to the gargantuan Human Genome Project. Instead of mapping the human DNA system, however, the project, known at the Human Proteome Project or HPP, will attempt to diagram the architecture of the 5,000,000 proteins that receive [...]

I just could not pass up this one. Some new research out of the U.K. suggests that women are more attracted to healthy looking men than good looking men. What does that mean? It means if your face has a healthy glow, rather that just being handsome, women are more likely to connect.

Just heard a sugar story today on the radio. If I remember correctly, the report said Americans should limit processed sugar intake to the equivalent of no more than 9 teaspoons a day. Right now, we average 28! And sugar is hell on immune function.
The radio report centered on a new commentary in Nature, [...]
As if the human immune system and the many health conditions it impacts aren’t complex enough. Try wrapping your brain around this. Some new Yale research paints a wild picture of how the immune system in the gut, controlled by a mix of good and bad bacteria or “microflora,” may actually be transferred from one [...]
This TED Talk presentation given late last year is worth a watch. It’s a 17-minute overview of the immune system, given by Tim Mossman of the University of Rochester. It’s got a lot of complicated charts and images that attempt to describe the infinitely complex immune system
