  1. It's for charity and a good cause--Pittsburgh's Project Bundle Up
  2. It's January 1st and a great way to start the New Year (and cure a hangover if you're into that...)
  3. It has become a family tradition, and I'm not going to quit before my two older brothers (I'm the youngest so I have to be tougher than them). It's our 8th Year in a row. Well, 7 for my oldest brother, Brett. He missed a year because of cancer; I think he deserves a pass, right? Maybe? We'll see...

Dr. Rhonda Patrick, PhD (Biomedical Science) is an expert in the field of Aging, Cancer & Nutrition. She is someone I seriously trust. She is about as unbiased as one can be, and she cares deeply about quality research and science. She has a 20-page report about the benefits of Cryotherapy.
