Something New on DiseaseProof...

Okay folks, I’m not one to toot my own horn, so let me toot yours—wow, that sounds kind of dirty—thanks everyone! Thank you for your loyal readership. DiseaseProof has been kicking butt lately. In fact, last month was the blog’s busiest month—EVER!

So here’s my gift to you. Say hello to DiseaseProof’s newest series. Joining Eating to Live on the Outside and Operation Banana Hunt, is DiseaseProof Interviews. That’s right. I’ve sharpened my pencils, dusted off my tape recorder, and prepared the truth serum. Time to rock and roll!

I’m all set to go one-on-one with the voices of diet, health, and fitness—both online and off—I’m totally excited about! It’ll give me the opportunity to polish my interviewing skills, while providing all of you with interesting insight into the swirling abyss of health information. It kicks off Monday.

Monday I’ll be presenting my interview with former Wall Street Journal health columnist, author of The Hormone Decision and Cigarettes: Anatomy of an Industry from Seed to Smoke, and current New York Times journalist/blogger Tara Parker-Pope. Don’t know Tara? Shame on you—only kidding—check her out on the Well Blog. Here are some of her recent posts:
Not to gush, but Tara’s an awesome blogger. She mentioned during the interview that she adds a personal touch—a dash of humanity and compassion—to all her blogging and reporting. As someone who pours his heart into this blog each and everyday, I really appreciate her sentiments. Now, for more Tara, check out this video from Charlie Rose:


Tara’s a cool chick. I had a great time chatting with her, I learned a lot. Not only about health, but health journalism too! She and I discussed a myriad of topics; including health-blogging, hormone therapy, breastfeeding, and smoking. No worries, I made sure to pepper the interview with plenty my smart-alecky sense of humor—you know you love it—see you Monday!

Hey Llouise-

Oh I do declare, you certainly know how to flatter a man--batting my eyelashes.

Peace.
