About William

William Tucker is the Vice President of D&Y Laboratories, a research laboratory that specializes in environmental and natural health technologies. As part of his day-to-day activities, he is in touch with hundreds of integrative health practitioners, through personal contact, symposiums, and conferences. In his own words, "I love the fields of integrative and natural health, and consider it a real privilege to be in touch with so many different professionals. It gives me a very broad overview into the field of health. I find that just about every practitioner I talk to gives me either a broader overview, or a unique perspective, on some aspect of health. I enjoy writing about health as I have so many resources to draw from. Working at a research laboratory also gives me a different approach from most others writing in the field of health. I have to always question the information I receive; not that I am necessarily skeptical, but I have to qualify the information, and verify the facts. If you have any questions or feedback on my articles, or would like a specific subject addressed, please feel free to suggest them to me."

Genetics are slow to change; it doesn’t happen over a few generations.

How is Health Lost and Regained?

A lack of general knowledge of the subjects of health and the human body leads to misconceptions, and opens the door to accepting false information.  For instance, many people believe that disease and illness are brought about by some mysterious unknown (or unavoidable) cause, and that it is just a matter of “luck” - or, bad luck.  Luck may be a factor, but it certainly isn’t the overriding factor.

The Food Industry and its Conflicts of Interest

Every food giant advertises its “delicious meals” and “high-quality food items” so that you, the consumer, will choose to buy its brand. And, true to their word, some of their food tastes pretty good. But with the globalization and centralization of food, new problems arise.
