I gave this grand rounds at St Johns and Providence Hospital last week (two grand rounds, same subject, same week, that's lecturing like a boss).
Here is a link to see the presentation with me narrating.
Same presentation but higher quality.
The original Keynote file is available here for remixing and editing.
A PDF of the presentation is available here.
Notes on the presentationthis article by the FDA.

I really like the chart styles I used in this lecture. One of the problems with pie graphs is trying to associate a color to a trend. what part of the pie is attached to what is happening. By making one color with maximum contrast and the other with no contrast (transparent), it becomes much clearer. If I were to change anything I would get rid of the title of the slide and increase the typeface over the pies. Kupin's slide with the same data for comparison.
The silicate stone story is a little weak and could be cut.
Love this slide. Kupin's idea to leverage physician familiarity with Grapefruit interactions with how St. John Wort interacts. He is really clever.
Patrick Arnold was the guy who brought DMAA back from the dead. Patrick Arnold was the chemist behind BALCO and inventor of The Clear.
It's principal cell not principle cell. Thanks Matt.
The next version should add some of the data I started to put together on vitamins, especially the SELECT trial and the USPTF statement saying that vitamins have no role in the prevention of cancer of cardiac disease.
