I spoke this past week at the Henry Ford Hospital in West Bloomfield, Michigan — both at a community forum, and in grand rounds for the medical staff — on my usual topics: the fundamental truths and luminous potential of diet and lifestyle as our medicines of choice.
A colleague and friend in the audience captured on video a brief snippet in which I explain how nonsense about health routinely impersonates gospel. Watching the video, I made myself chuckle — because the delivery was, intentionally, humorous. But then, I made myself want to cry — because the narrative is true, and the consequences are dire. Let’s explore the malady, and see if we can establish the remedy for it.
