Libertarian light Ken Bisson, MD, is an advocate of best practices in weight loss and longer life in the US, and has created centers in many cities.
LIO advisory Fellow and friend Ken Bisson, MD, is a dedicated rights activist known for his work in several Libertarian political and non-partisan groups ( http://www.theadvocates.org/about/board-of-directors ), as a former Vice-Chair of the US Libertarian Party, and as host of a periodic cruise to bring activists and thinkers together to share perspectives. He is known in his area for Libertarian-based analyses of problems and gentle presentation of more voluntary solutions. Recently, he was appointed to public office in his County's Planning Commission.
This activity may pale compared to his dedication to public health through better information. In recent years he has carefully studied general government recommendations, best practices in diet and weight loss, and how they relate to individualized genetic factors revealed through testing. He has developed an approach and organized a system to deliver his methods to people living in many areas. One might say the idea is not only that a simple but satisfying diet--which some may find very different from over-generalized official rules -- combined with good health practices is the best. In addition, both diets and adherence can benefit from being individualized.
He continues his scientific and presentation work with peers. The public may consider his group, which provides free consultations, at:
