  • How Fruits and Vegetables Can Treat Asthma
    In my video Preventing Asthma With Fruits and Vegetables, I highlighted an international study of asthma and allergies involving more than a million kids.

  • How Fruits and Vegetables Can Prevent Asthma
    Asthma is the most common chronic disease in children and the prevalence is increasing around the world.

  • Our Tax Dollars Subsidize Unhealthy Foods
    Why do food companies sell junk? Because unhealthy commodities are highly profitable. This is in part because of their “low production cost, long shelf-life, and high retail value,” which create perverse incentives for industries to market and sell more junk. In a study highlighted in my video, Taxpayer Subsidies for Unhealthy Foods, researchers (...more)

  • The Vegan-Friendly Shoes I Wear for Almost Every Run
    When it comes to running shoes, there's no shortage of opportunity for geekery. Minimal, maximal, stack height, heel-toe offset, arch structure, weight … to some people, it’s borderline obsession-worthy. As a blogger who writes about running, I should be a shoe geek. But, alas, I just can't get into it. I run for the simplicity Read (...more)

    Helping people go vegan is great. But it's meaningless if we can't help them stay vegan. Last week, I wrote about how overhyping the benefits of a vegan diet can result in ex-vegans.

    This blog focuses "on issues related to both veganism and paleontology, my two biggest passions; I live by one and am working towards a master's degree in the other. It may seem a strange combination, but hopefully you'll come to see otherwise by reading this humble blog. In my mind, both subjects converge in their connection to issues of climate change, evolution, human health, and H. sapiens' impact and place in the web of life. I think you'll find that using those two concepts -- veganism and paleontology -- as lenses can be the key to a wide range of interesting and vitally important subjects; hence, the title of this blog.
