Sunshine and Telomeres

A warm sunny day … what could feel better? Yet the warm sun on our skin that we all crave gets a lot of bad press from the medical establishment.

A Nutrition Pioneer

I got a great magazine in the mail last week. It’s a TIME special edition about all my heroes in science. Sir Isaac Newton, Einstein, Pasteur… I read a little further and I was happy to see Linus Pauling. I thought, “Great!
