a bodybuilder who “gets it!”

I leveraged some of this from a blog by Jason Ferruggia, one of the few bodybuilders who actually knows better than to drink whey protein shakes:Many of you know that dairy is not good for getting lean, and that consumption of dairy products has been linked to a decreased immune response.   Most of us […]

A friend called me and said, “Great site—but are you nuts,  about the immunizations?”   He pointed out that he grew up in the polio age—he’s committed to the idea that vaccines are a good thing. The FIRST thing I want to say is that I acknowledge the complexity of this issue, the difficulty of […]
