    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Yours in health,

    Not an MD, hust a PhD such as myself. Heard him tell his story before, afterall, he's got to sell those Zone Diet books he wrote. Also, we have to rmember that many here don't put any merit in degrees and such, at least thats what I've heard. I guess some educated people have more merit than others, bias not withstanding as I think some call saying something for financial gain "bias", right? Personally I can see some merit in what he says but don't agree with it all.
