Dr. Dean Edell, whom I met and interviewed in 2001, recently announced that he has retired from talk radio. His voice of reason, which generally favored facts, science and free choice in medicine, will be seriously missed. Read my interview with Dr. Dean about his book Eat, Drink and Be Merry and his thoughts on health and medicine as it appeared here, in the nation’s first newspaper, the Hartford Courant. I wish him all the best and hope he continues to speak out for rational science and medicine.
