On December 15, 1991 the LA Times published a large expose about Jimmy Keller, a man dedicated to healing and experimental medicine. The government believed he was a con man, kidnapped him in Mexico, convicted him of fraud and put him in jail. Interestingly and importantly, the 1999 Nobel Prize research showed him to have been a medical genius. Almost all our understanding of arginine, a simple amino acid, comes in the years following Keller’s conviction.
