A in-depth multi-part Seminar by Douglas F. Watt, Ph.D.
Western healthcare systems are losing a battle against chronic disease, driven in good part by skyrocketing rates of diaobesity (the ubiquitous conjoining of obesity with type II diabetes), and a profound mismatch between our genome and the modern environment. Of the four critical lifestyle variables (diet, exercise, sleep, and social support versus social stress) only two get any attention in primary care, and oftentimes even those are neglected. How can we change a losing game?
