Summary.  Dr. Wilson has a Bachelors of Science degree from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.  He also has a medical degree (MD) from the Centro De Estudios Universitarios Xochicalco, located in Ensenada, Mexico, and passed the United States ECFMG exam for foreign medical graduates in July, 1978.

He began studying nutrition in 1970, and studied under many physicians and nutritionists.  He was one of the main technical assistants to Dr. Paul Eck for 14 years, where he learned the basics of mineral balancing, now called nutritional balancing.  It formed the jumping off point for development science, which he now teaches. 

His current activities are:

- Teaching physicians and nutrition consultants about development science.

- Writing, publishing and distributing 4 books and 20 compact disc programs on health and nutrition.

- Maintaining and expanding this website, which currently offers about 1500 articles at no charge to the public.

- Answering about 30 emails daily from the public concerning their health problems and other questions.  However, he cannot give specific health advice via email.

Financial disclosure.  Dr. Wilson has no financial interest in Dr. EckÕs mineral testing laboratory (Analytical Research Labs) or Dr. EckÕs vitamin company, Endomet Labs.  However, he does technical consulting and teaching for them.

Dr. Wilson does not keep any of the money he earns from consulting and teaching development science.  All funds go to The Center For Development, Inc., a non-profit, tax-exempt foundation that offers financial assistance to children and young women who cannot afford the cost of a development program.
