Easter Sunday is just around the corner.
It’s the time of year when supermarkets strategically line their checkout counters with chocolate covered bunnies, marshmallow peeps, and of course my all-time childhood favorite…
Cadbury creme eggs.
A delicious holiday blend of milk chocolate, vegetable fat, emulsifiers, sugar, glucose syrup, invert sugar syrup, and other weird stuff that surely sent my blood sugar on a wild ride.
And that’s why it struck me as odd that while reading Michele Simon’s book Appetite for Profit I learned that Cadbury Schweppes — maker of the creme eggs and other sugar bombs at the time of the author’s writing — was a strong financial supporter of the American Diabetes Association (ADA).

It just won’t go away.
No matter what you try or which doctor you see, you can’t seem to get rid of it.
The headaches. The embarrassing skin breakouts. The foggy brain. The extra weight. The back pain. Or the mucus perpetually lurking in the back of your throat.
In my case, it was the latter. As you may know by now, for years I thought I would be forever plagued by a bad case of the annoying clear-my-throat-every-two-minutes disease.
Eventually I figured it out, removed eggs from my diet, and … poof! Gone.
Glad that’s over.
The only remaining health nuisance was an intermittent pain in my side that was often accompanied by terrible indigestion and a loss of all bass in my voice. Weird, I know.
Then last year I put two and two together and got DAIRY.

I’m an opinionated kind of guy.
I’ll tell you how it is and won’t hold anything back.
BUT of all the email and tweets I receive, there’s one topic I won’t touch…
Ask me about vaccines and you’re likely to get a “no comment” or an “I don’t know.”
Because really, I don’t know.
For example, I have no idea whether or not vaccines cause autism. I haven’t seen the scientific proof.
And in the litigious society we live in these days, the last thing I need is a lawsuit because someone’s child got a bad case of measles (because of my anti-vaccination stance) or was diagnosed as autistic (because I was pro-vaccines).
Nope, not going near it.

Today’s interview could not be more timely.
This week, an antibiotic-resistant “nightmare bacteria” was connected to two patient deaths at a UCLA Medical Center.
As reported by CNN, the bacteria known as CRE proves fatal for half of those infected. At last count, 179 patients may have been exposed to the contaminated endoscopes said to be the source of the UCLA outbreak. So far, seven infections have been reported.
Unfortunately, antibiotic-resistant bacteria are become increasingly common. According to today’s podcast guest Dr. Martin Blaser, author of Missing Microbes, the overuse of antibiotics is largely to blame.
Who wants a scholarship?
Yesterday, our friend Marie Forleo opened enrollment for her online B-School (short for “business school”) course.

Being a B-School graduate myself, I cannot recommend the course more highly. BUT I also know that courses like this don’t fit into everyone’s budget.
So, for the second year in a row, I’m sending one ultra-motivated, aspiring entrepreneur to B-School. Right out of my own pocket.
Here’s how to qualify:
