Neal Barnard, MD, is an Adjunct Professor of Medicine at the George Washington University School of Medicine in Washington, DC, and President of the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine.
Dr. Barnard is known for his groundbreaking research studies showing that type 2 diabetes is a potentially reversible condition for many patients, and tackling a range of other serious conditions, from obesity and high cholesterol, to migraines and rheumatoid arthritis. He now addresses a surprising new area: how foods affect our hormones and all the mischief they can cause, from infertility and menstrual cramps to cancer. His new book, Your Body in Balance: The New Science of Food, Hormones, and Health, gives new hope for people dealing with what they thought had been insoluble conditions.
