Simplified Viral Anatomy
By Andy Hendel

A virus is a unique microscopic agent that does not fit neatly into the biological package we call a cell. A cell has:



  1. Defined cellular structure with organelles

This indicates use of insulin therapy should be discouraged unless absolutely necessary, particularly given the existence of alternative pharmaceutical and lifestyle tools to establish glycemic control without the use of insulin. More broadly, this evidence is consistent with the assertion (previously explored on CrossFit.com) that hyperinsulinemia directly increases morbidity and mortality and thus ...

In October 2013, I published a peer-reviewed editorial in the BMJ entitled “Saturated fat is not the major issue.” The editorial made the front page of three British newspapers and was featured on CNN International and Fox News, among other outlets (1). After analyzing the research for two years and developing my own clinical experience managing thousands of patients with diet-related chronic disease, I concluded incorrect dietary advice was a root cause of the obesity epidemic. To summarize:



  1. There was no good-quality and convincing evidence that saturated fat causes heart disease...
