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.

Comment of the Week

All right, I’ll pull out the blackstrap molasses, and then the Nair for the hair it’ll put on my chest.
Nair is primal too, right?

– That’s how I do it.

The cat and the cucumber. How many of us have seen something out of the corner of our eye, mistaken it for what it wasn’t, and been startled…or am I the only one? I think the cat turned and saw something that could have been a fat lizard or even a snake. And, of course, it automatically jumped away and turned in the air to land facing this possible threat. Or it could just be a “scaredy-cat”. Or maybe just schizoid.

Well, if you think about it, how many times does a cat see a cucumber on the floor? I know I don’t put mine on the floor, except when I’ve come right home from shopping. Then it’s in a bag and my cat is busy swatting the plastic.

So I wonder if good gut health can help mitigate the risk of Parkinson’s disease?

The eccentric hamstring exercise looks interesting, if there was some way to safely and comfortably anchor your shins one could perhaps do them solo, although a spotter is clear better.

As an ex-tennis player the ball compression video was interesting (although I never came even close to hitting a serve 142 MPH). As a side note, disturbing about all those tennis balls going into landfills.

The article referencing gluten intolerance is misleading. It makes the assumption that today’s wheat is the the same wheat grown 10,000 years ago.
