      What’s the one thing in the world I want to change?

      One of the greatest things that we can do as scientists and rationalists is to change someone’s mind. I have devoted my life to the rational understanding of the world around me, and forming views based on evidence. This is one way we can ensure that the things we believe to be true are actually true. Being able to change people’s minds about things is a worthwhile achievement, especially when you are trying to address issues that effect people’s health.
