UCLA Q&A: The modern mismatch
Dr. Peter Whybrow, best-selling author and director of the Semel Institute for Neuroscience and Human Behavior at UCLA, is not surprised by the high incidence of obesity, diabetes, depression and other maladies in the U.S. today. The renowned UCLA psychiatrist and endocrinologist believes that a stressful mismatch between the brain’s evolved biology and today’s seductive, demand-driven culture has helped shape behavior and habits that are disruptive to a life well lived. Whybrow’s popular books, including his latest, “The Well-Tuned Brain,” explore this cultural mismatch and how we can restore life's balance thro...

My brother knows that simple introduction just bought him more store credit on his alcohol tab, because after all addicts are the Da Vinci of creativity for their supply, especially in a small town.

My "Grown-Up Christmas List" is all about eliminating "accidents." Each year more than 130,000 deaths are due to unintentional injuries.
