Teresa L. Johnson,

I’m a fearless writer, taking on topics ranging from plant communication, bone health, and vaccines to cancer prevention, plant-based diets, and the neurobiology of meanness. My work has appeared in Slate, the Journal of Ethnopharmacology, Mental Floss, and many other publications. I’m also a co-author of the book The Metabolic Dance.
