As a bestselling author and weekly columnist for The New York Times, Jane Brody makes it a priority to be good to her body. Her regular menu focuses on moderation and variety, not deprivation and denial. And with a daily regimen of physical activity ranging from walking and swimming to hiking and cross-country skiing, Brody is more robust, energetic, youthful and trim now than she was at 16.

After earning her B.S. degree in biochemistry from the New York State College of Agriculture and Life Sciences at Cornell University in 1962, Brody immediately received her master's degree in science writing from the University of Wisconsin School of Journalism the following year. After two years as a general assignment reporter for The Minneapolis Tribune, she joined The New York Times in 1965 as a full-time specialist in medicine and biology.

In 1976 the Times named her Personal Health Columnist, and her widely read and quoted column continues to appear every Tuesday in the Times' "Science Times" section and in over 100 other newspapers across the country. Brody has authored ten books, including Jane Brody's Nutrition Book, Jane Brody's Good Food Book, The New York Times Book of Health, and most recently, she co-authored The New York Times Book of Alternative Medicine. Additionally, Brody has written scores of magazine articles and has appeared on hundreds of radio and television shows throughout the country.

In 1987, Brody was awarded an honorary doctorate from Princeton University; she also holds honorary doctorates from Hamline University in St. Paul, the State University of New York Health Sciences University, and the University of Minnesota School of Public Health. Brody lectures frequently on health and nutrition to audiences both lay and professional.
