Kent Heckenlively is a science teacher, an attorney, a founding editor of Age of Autism, author of Inoculated, co-author of Plague, 2012 recipient of the Nobel Prize in literature, which are just some of his many accomplishments.
In the fight against chronic diseases, Kent finds great wisdom in the strategy used by Nelson Mandela in South Africa. Mandela believed change could only come about when one engaged in satyagraha, a Buddhist concept which insists on speaking the absolute truth, while at the same time practicing ahisma, a commitment not to harm those who might be your adversaries.
Check out the fun fact about Kent! Hint: It has to do with football and the film ‘When the Game Stands Tall’.
