Getting US Healthy

For a couple decades I've read widely, on a hobby basis, in the healthy-lifestyle-science area.  My interest began when I was trying to boost my intellectual performance while in graduate school.  Later, when I started a family at age 50, my interest shifted to staying healthy and being around to watch, help, and enjoy my kids as they grew into adults.

Last night I had the honor of introducing one of my favorite healthy-lifestyle-science heroes, Michael Greger, MD.  Greger's talk was sponsored by the Rochester Area Vegetarian Society, a good place to learn how to become vegan and improve your health.  He delivered his lecture, "The Role of Diet in Preventing, Arresting, & Reversing the 15 Leading Causes of Death", to an overflowing audience of 124 at The Summit at Brighton, "a provider of independent senior living" here in Rochester.  Many in the audience attended despite being drenched due to a thunder storm that struck just before the talk began.  You can watch the same lecture on YouTube here.

I'm prompted to mention all this after reading Dorothy Paige's blog on our single-payer health-care option.
