    Fasting, the Ketogenic Diet and AMP-K: The New Kid on the Block

    Friday, February 27, 2015

    When I was growing up in the 80s, New Kids on the Block were a massive hit. Yet, I never understood why, nor was I interested in their music. With behemoths like Michael Jackson and Milli Vanilli, who had time for NKOTB? In fact, I even saw Milli Vanilli live in concert and it was […]

    Running from Health: The Perils of Jogging

    Friday, February 27, 2015
