    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,

    He seems a bit manic to me. This guy has posted a huge number may be a hundred, of his lectures all over the youtube. If science worked by flooding the world with words then he would have already received a Nobel prize. Fortunately it doesn't work that way.

    There are a lot of words in Gary Taubes book which actually is part of his mystique, people thinking that so many words and references must mean he knows something.
