Do not allow thirst for profit, ambition for renown and admiration to interfere with my profession, for these are the enemies of truth and of love for mankind, and they can lead astray in the great task of attending to the welfare of Thy creatures.
Maimonides, "Prayer for the Physician"
The prevailing view today is that cancer is a “genetic disease” involving nuclear mutations in oncogenes and tumor suppressor genes. Although this somatic mutation theory is currently the dominant theory for the origin of cancer, the mitochondrial metabolic theory is emerging as an alternative explanation for the origin of cancer.Read More
Extension work on the GHD can be both similar and dissimilar in action to CrossFit’s nine foundational movements. The GHD hip extension is similar because the spine is held in neutral throughout each rep. Both the GHD back extension and the GHD hip and back extension require deliberate flexion and extension of the spine. While the spine is always held rigid when lifting, training flexion and extension on the GHD builds strength, positional awareness and coordination that can be applied to other movements.Watch

“China’s fitness-is-best message, as it happens, has largely been the handiwork of Coca-Cola and other Western food and beverage giants, according to a pair of new studies that document how those companies have helped shape decades of Chinese science and public policy on obesity and diet-related illnesses like Type 2 diabetes and hypertension."Read the article
“Coke’s recipe for success in China relies on more than cultivating political relationships and strategic localisation of products and marketing.

Never is the stabilizing role of the abdominals more critical than when attempting to drive loads overhead. We train our athletes to think of every exercise as an ab exercise. This is essential in the overhead lifts. It is easy to see when an athlete is not sufficiently engaging the abs in an overhead press—the body arches so as to push the hips, pelvis, and stomach ahead of the bar. Constant vigilance is required of every lifter to prevent and correct this postural deformation.Watch
“The intake of added sugars, such as from table sugar (sucrose) and high-fructose corn syrup, has increased dramatically in the last hundred years and correlates closely with the rise in obesity, metabolic syndrome and diabetes.”Read More
The U.S. and U.K., having been the first to introduce high-carbohydrate advice, will be the last to change. Their citizens will have to take their health into their own hands.

"One of the greatest problems in medicine today is that academic medicine has been sold to the highest bidder. Under the guise of ‘evidence-based medicine,’ the public has been sold fraudulent goods, and the result is that people suffer from unnecessary but lucrative procedures and take unnecessary but lucrative medications." —Dr. Jason FungRead the article
