Kelli Harding - The Rabbit Effect
When Columbia University doctor Kelli Harding began her clinical practice, she never intended to explore the invisible factors behind our health. But then there were the rabbits. In 1978, a seemingly straightforward experiment designed to establish the relationship between high blood cholesterol and heart health in rabbits discovered that kindness—in the form of a particularly nurturing post-doc who pet and spoke to the lab rabbits as she fed them—made the difference between a heart attack and a healthy heart.
The rabbits were just the beginning of a much larger story.
"The Rabbit Effect: Live Longer, Happier, and Healthier with the Groundbreaking Science of Kindness" is an eye-opening and provocative new way to look at our health based on the latest discoveries in the science of compassion, kindness, and human connection. Through provocative storytelling and compelling research, Harding presents a new model for you to take charge of your health.
