Edward James Olmos
Edward James Olmos (1947—) The intense, Academy Award-nominated star of Stand and Deliver, Battlestar Gallactica, and Miami Vice, is known for his activism as well as his acting—and he’s particularly engaged in the fight against diabetes. His father and all four of his uncles, plus two of his aunts, have died of complications of the disease, and Olmos’ sister and brother are both dealing with it. One uncle committed suicide rather than have his legs amputated.

Olmos may have a very strong genetic predisposition towards type 2 diabetes, but he’s determined to prove that it’s not an inevitable curse.

Health tip of the day:
If you have trouble getting cool in summer or if you sweat a lot during exercise, try using sandalwood oil as a splash on cologne. Sandalwood oil has cooling properties and is used in many Asian countries to cool the body when no air conditioning is available. It smells great and works as a natural coolant on the skin. It’s also great for acne, eczema and other skin problems that can be caused by sensitivity to heat. Regrettably, due to over cultivation in India, it's very difficult to find good quality sandalwood oil, unless you happen to visit the Mysore Provence in India or Dubai- where they sell all sorts of essential oils and fragrances.. Still, even diluted versions that can be found in the USA work pretty well to keep you cool in summer months. Try shops that sell incense or Indian goods, and if possible purchase the Mysore brand which regulated by the Indian Government and is the most pure oil available in most cases.
