  • As an editor for Fitness magazine, my job is to be a conduit of information between my readers and the experts (registered dietitians, medical doctors, and researchers). In essence, I’m a translator. You see, most experts speak what I like to call medicalese—a complex, exceedingly tedious language that few outside their professions can understand. Medicalese words can be as long as some sentences, sentences are usually the size of paragraphs, and whole studies—well, let’s just say it takes a lot of coffee to get through some of them....

  • Nutritional Biochemistry takes a scientific approach to nutrition. It covers not just "whats"--nutritional requirements--but why they are required for human health, by describing their function at the cellular and molecular level. Each case study either leads to a subsequent discovery or enables an understanding of the physiological mechanisms of action of various nutrition-related processes. The text is "picture-oriented" and the commentary is directed towards explaining graphs, figures, and tables. ...

  • T. COLIN CAMPBELL, at his core, is still a farm boy from northern Virginia. When we spend time together we inevitably share our stories from the farm. Whether it is spreading cow manure, driving tractors or herding cattle, both of us share a rich history in farming. But from these backgrounds, both he and I went on to other careers. It is for his other career accomplishments that I came to admire Colin. He was involved in the discovery of a chemical later called dioxin, and he went on to direct one of the most important diet and health studies ever conducted, the China Study.
