As NPR reports [1], your lifestyle behaviors may not only affect your gene expression. They may alter your children’s, too.

Author Leo Babauta of Zen Habits just launched his new book, Focus [2]. For those looking to simplify the chaos in their lives, Leo has aptly dubbed his new book a “simplicity manifesto.” You can get it free as a download, or you can buy an upgraded version including some goodies like how-to videos (love the title “How to Single Task”) and interviews with the likes of Seth Godin [3].

My good buddy and former professional triathlete Brad Kearns was recently interviewed on Matt Metzgar’s site. It’s a great read for folks who are Primal but still like to run [5].

For folks who enjoyed Wednesday’s post on doctor payouts from pharmaceutical companies [6], here’s an excellent interview with Ray Moynihan on a different marketing tactic Big Pharma uses: Promoting the disorder to promote the treatment [7].

And finally, zonk yourself out [8], man.
