Sometimes, the most beneficial nutrient one can consume presents itself in the form of giving. Last night I met some fantastic people while volunteering at the Ben Mahmoud Memorial Retrospective and Auction event put on by the Chicago ALS Association, and the Mahmoud family. Ben was an amazing artist and professor who sadly suffered and eventually succumb to ALS (Lou Gehrig's disease). The proceeds from this event were donated to the Greater Chicago Chapter's investment in research while fighting ALS.
