SB 380 Will Require Physicians to Learn about
After the unanimous passage by both houses of congress on September 6, 2011, California Governor Jerry Brown signed into law Senate Bill (SB) 380. The sole purpose of this directive is to remedy the widespread lack of basic knowledge of California physicians about human nutrition. Simply put, medical doctors do not know what their patients should eat to prevent, treat, and often cure common diseases, including obesity, type-2 diabetes, and heart disease.
The fate of (1) more than 38 million men, women, and children living in California, (2) the economy of California, and (3) the reputations of California-licensed medical doctors all hang in the balance of effectively implementing SB 380. The ripple effect of doing so will be felt across the nation. The Medical Board's first SB 380 Working Group Meeting will be held on July 17, 2013 in Sacramento, California.
Hawaii McDougall Adventure, January 18 to 25, 2014
Pricey for Good Reasons
Our (John and Mary McDougall’s) visit last month (May 2013) to the Mauna Lani Bay Hotel on the Big Island of Hawaii left us with no doubt that travelers will understand why we have taken this noticeable leap in quality for this McDougall Adventure. Take a tour through the property at their website.
The rooms are spacious and all have ocean views. Fishponds with hammerhead sharks, ray, jacks, and colorful reef species decorate the perimeters of the buildings. Pi’i, caretaker of the Royal Fish ponds, will conduct a private tour for our group. Within 100 yards of the beach lies one of the most beautiful and populated natural reefs that I have seen in Hawaii and I have over 15 years of snorkeling and SCUBA experience in these Islands. Even those of you with little experience would have been able to swim with yellow tang, black trigger, parrot, butterfly, blue angel, and puffer fish on the day I snorkeled last month. Daniel Akaka, our Hawaiian historian, leads the private tour of the petroglyphs, koa outrigger canoes, and the plantation house where Mary, Heather, and John McDougall stayed 38 years ago at the site of the Mauna Lani Hotel (long before any hotels were built in this area).
