Starting June 1, I will tweet a chapter each day from my new book goodreasons.info about how the light of evolutionary biology can dissolve the mists that swirl around mental disorders. Well, some mists for some disorders. @DuttonBooks @hbes2019 @LondonEvolution @ISEMPH
From the Preface: I wanted to write this book as soon as I realized that evolution could explain why bodies are vulnerable to disease. But the rest of medicine had to come first. Why We Get Sick stirred lots of interest. The new book is about why mental illness exists at all.
For each chapter I address the question, "So what?" Saying what is true changes only views unless it also changes what people do. Mental health clinicians who understand evolution do their work differently and better. For all others, self-understanding is valuable in itself.

Today, @DrMcCance_Katz shares California data compared to national data on prevalence of substance use disorder and mental health issues at the 2019 CMHACY conference.
SAMHSA will focus on nation no longer just on grantees.
56.8M Americans have a mental or substance use disorder in the country.
California looks very similar to the nation.

As a cancer researcher & science communicator, I have very mixed feelings on proposed #alcohol cancer labelling for drinks. I'll try here to elucidate why, and you can tell me whether you agree or not (1/n)
...so firstly, is alcohol a carcinogen? Almost undoubtedly, yes. IARC grade it a class 1 carcinogen, alongside asbestos, ionizing radiation, & smoking. We even know some mechanisms of damage. So labels should be a no-brainer, right? (2/n)
...well not quite. The real question isn't just whether something causes cancer (oxygen, processed meat, and sunlight are also Class 1 carcinogens for example) but how much it increases our risk of getting cancer. We need both bits of information to make a call (3/n)

Hello, everyone and welcome back to our weekly #GEMChats! This week, we'll discuss the results of the poll on whether #celebrities make successful #entrepreneurs!

Let's begin, shall we?

#startup #womenentrepreneur #business #showbiz
So recently @KylieJenner sparked a heated debate on how celebrities are successful at entrepreneurship when she was announced to become the youngest self-made #billionaire ever.

#KUWTK
Some feel strongly that she only dethroned #MarkZuckerberg from that position because she is part of the #Kardashian and her #entrepreneurial venture has multi-level of safety net and it allows her to #scaleup at an exponential rate.
