Interesting quote from the YouTube talk: “When God made the poison, he packaged it with the antidote.” Robert H. Lustig, MD, UCSF Professor of Pediatrics in the Division of Endocrinology

Pick your poison—and your Easter eggs—carefully. Have a superb Resurrection Day celebration! Becky

  1. While teaching a child, I recently noticed the positive effect exercise has on learning. In previous lessons, he had been very distracted and inconsistent in his understanding of what was being taught. However, on this day, he was very focused. Not only that, but he independently and consistently demonstrated the skills I had been
    trying to teach him in previous lessons. He seemed like an entirely different child. When I asked his mother about the significant difference, she said that he had been running around outside for the past hour and that outdoor exercise always has a very positive effect on him.
