Linus Pauling: Well, orthomolecular medicine. I got interested in orthomolecular medicine - I invented the word "orthomolecular" - because
I had been working on schizophrenia. When Harvey Itano left me to go back to Bethesda after eight years, I thought, "I don't
want to compete with him, in studying the hemoglobinopathies. So I'll look at some other diseases," and I decided on mental
disease. I got some grants over a ten-year period and with my associates worked on mental illness.
