The researchers found almost the same results for cutting the risk of death caused by heart disease.”

SAGE Serendipity: Anthony Bourdain, celebrity chef, author,  and TV/travel personality, took his life last week while on location in France. He began his “out of the kitchen” career with this 1999 article for New Yorker Magazine Don’t Eat Before Reading This, which is the precursor to his book Kitchen Confidential: Adventures in the Culinary Underbelly. It’s the reason restaurants have a hard time serving fish on a Monday.
