Durk Pearson

Durk Pearson was born in 1943. He attended MIT and took a triple major in physics, biology, and psychology, with a triple minor in electrical engineering, computer science, and chemistry. He graduated with a B.S. in physics in 1965. His score on the Graduate Record Exam was the highest in the nation for that year.

Durk has patents in the areas as broad as that of oil shale and tar sands recovery, lasers, holography, and supplement formulations. He was a leader in the life extension movement and wrote the book Life Extension: A Practical Scientific Approach. That book remains a must read for those interested in nutrition and health. He has written many papers or nutrition education articles.

Norman Cousins

We recommend any book by Norman Cousins. Cousins had a history of illnesses dating back to the tuberculosis that confined him to a sanatorium for a year when he was 11. In the mid-1960s he suffered a paralyzing collagen disease, which he claimed to have cured with massive injections of vitamin C. Around 1977 Cousins contracted cancer. His disease eventually went into remission, the whole struggle being described in Anatomy of an Illness (1979), which was later made into a CBS television movie starring Ed Asner and Cousins himself in 1984.

Illness, both its prevention and cure, continued to interest Cousins, particularly after he suffered a near-fatal heart attack in 1980. It led him to write The Human Option (1981) and The Healing Heart (1983) and to compile the anthology The Physician in Literature (1981).

Throughout Cousins's bouts with illness, he subscribed to the belief in a "laugh-cure", documenting his theories in his various books on health, and also in magazine articles. He also served as an adjunct professor at the University of California at Los Angeles School of Medicine. His nutrition education articles and books are more geared toward illness prevention and cure and not necessarily the more general subject of nutrition.

In the late 1980s Cousins wrote Head First (1989), which further explored his theories about medicine and the doctor-patient relationship. His 1987 work, The Pathology of Power was a treatise on world peace. Other of Cousins's later works include, The Human Adventure: A Camera Chronicle (1986), and Albert Schweitzer's Mission: Healing and Peace (1985).
