A Delicate Balance
Dr. Neal Barnard

Neal_BarnardDr. Neal Barnard, M.D.

Dr. Neal Barnard is a nutrition researcher and adjunct associate professor of medicine at George Washington University School of Medicine in Washington, D.C. He is also the president of the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine and the author of nine books on diet and health, including Foods that Fight Pain and Food for Life.

Dr. Barnard's interest in healthy eating evolved over many years. His family background includes both doctors and cattle ranchers - two groups that often disagree over health issues. Before attending medical school, Dr. Barnard worked as an autopsy assistant, where he observed heart disease and the other deadly effects of a bad diet, firsthand.

Dr. Barnard is also a rigourous opponent of unethical research practices. Since founding PCRM in 1985, he has spearheaded many successful campaigns to promote alternatives to the use of animals in medical research and education. PCRM also promotes higher standards in human research, and has fought against unethical human experiments, including a U.S. Government study in which healthy short children were given a genetically engineered growth hormone.
