Before that, the once Golden State governor struck it rich as a leading railroad tycoon. The innovative man would be proud to see that his school continues to set the standard for the college experience, and we’re not just talking about academics. You guessed it: food. Wealth probably earned old Leland more than a few lavish meals in his day. Based on student feedback and what appears to be a carefully considered approach to dining services, we can’t help but think his appetite for greatness might’ve inspired some of the university’s culina...

The Modern American Table: Is a Calorie a Calorie? We’ve all heard the dictate that a calorie is a calorie regardless of its source. But are all foods truly created equal in terms of how they affect our health and weight?

Dr. Kari Nadeau recently discovered something in her lab about the patients who have gone through a treatment known as oral immunotherapy, where they are slowly given increasingly larger amounts of the very foods they are allergic to. The process essentially builds up the patient's immunity to those foods that once were poison to them. Dr. Nadeau’s research, at the Sean N. Parker Center for Allergy Research at Stanford University, is still in a very early stage, but the discovery she describes could mean future generations might not be plagued by the genetic misfortunes of their parents or grandparents.
