Meet Mark

Let me introduce myself. My name is Mark Sisson. I’m 63 years young. I live and work in Malibu, California. In a past life I was a professional marathoner and triathlete. Now my life goal is to help 100 million people get healthy. I started this blog in 2006 to empower people to take full responsibility for their own health and enjoyment of life by investigating, discussing, and critically rethinking everything we’ve assumed to be true about health and wellness...

Here Comes the Buzz

Worker Bees’ Daily Bites:

Hey kids! Here’s the latest from the world of health:

1) I’m not sure, but I think I might want…

Is your heart hungry? This is a great little piece about food cravings that has lots of helpful encouragement. Don’t miss this Valentine for the body.

We don't know what this is, but we want to eat it.

2) Scrub your stomach clean the tasty way

Healthy fats have antioxidant properties that may provide an extra immunity kick against ulcers.

Destroying an ulcer near you.

3) We just really don’t give a fig, now that you mention it.

The FDA is now taking applications for executives with IQ’s above 45. They’re hoping this will help the mess they’ve made, but it’s too soon to tell. If you know of an available fire hydrant, pair of scissors or reasonably colorful goldfish you think might be a good fit for the job, you should definitely contact the FDA.

Lawmakers, journalists, speakers and Bees everywhere are in a big snit about all the egregious regulatory corruption and safety bungling from the FDA. On top of scandals, the Alli approval, and the recent news that a large percentage of FDA scientists are manipulated and threatened when they report undesirable findings, amazingly, the honchos don’t plan to change much anytime soon. Case in point: the FDA’s new leader is anything but fearless. Hey, we’re not expecting magic feats and a cape, but at least be honest in a press conference.

And Apples, lest ye forget:

The same great folks who approved Vioxx, Celebrex, Prempro, Alli and Ketek bring you Labelman, everyone’s favorite inflamed nubbin of nutrition. Loved by dogs everywhere.

[…] Well played, FDA, well played. As everyone and their goldfish knows by now, the FDA is no stranger to bribery and corruption. Various moves (a new chief, a new pyramid) haven’t yielded much improvement. […]
