I often find myself in a quandary in social settings when a friend, family member or new acquaintance asks me for some nutrition or supplementation advice.  I had an experience very recently, which was a typical scenario, whereby someone I was introduced to a social function asked me what I did for a living. Once they found out that I have written four books on nutrition/wellness/anti-aging, lecture extensively on these subjects to doctors and consumers, and ran a busy practice for 20 years, they im...
