The Intersection of Nutritional Sciences, Chemistry, and Physics

Dr. Michael Eades

Dr. Michael R. Eades received his BSCE degree in Civil Engineering from California Polytechnic University (Cal Poly), Pomona, California and his MD from the University of Arkansas Medical Sciences (UAMS).

After completing training in General Surgery as UAMS, Dr. Eades (along with his wife) founded Medi-Stat Medical Clinics, a chain of general family medicine outpatient care centers in central Arkansas, where he practiced general family medicine for over a decade.

In 1996, Dr. Eades co-authored (with Mary Dan Eades, MD), their first joint book project ‘Protein Power’, which became a national and international bestseller, selling over 3 million copies and spending 63 weeks on the NY Times Best Seller List.
