Mic is a science writer currently getting his Master's in Public Health. He is a wealth of knowledge and his videos are thorough, factual, scientific, very well made and often funny at the same time. I often find myself "binge watching" Mic The Vegan.
This is my YouTube channel which is still in its infancy. I am planning to start uploading regularly and to also put up some of the talks I give now and again. I am hoping to provide valuable information and support to you.
Vitamin D3, I like brand “Doctor’s Best”
