Solartopia Green Power and Wellness Hour – 12.10.15

PLANNED PARENTHOOD UNDER ATTACK!!!! We hear all about it from KATHY KNEER, head of California’s powerful Planned Parenthood organization, which runs more than 100 women’s health clinics throughout the nation’s largest state.

Kathy dissects for us the vicious attack being waged on womens’ medical services by right-wing fanatics. With control of both houses of Congress, the Republicans have finally passed anti-female legislation that goes far beyond abortion, denying women access to contraception and basic health care.

Kathy also tells us about the vile, cynical use of crudely distorted videos that undercut Planned Parenthood’s sterling reputation with the goal of ending this long-standing organization’s ability to provide basic services to women.

SHEILA PARKS also joins us for a discussion of the impact of electronically stolen elections on the future of women’s health care.

If you are at all concerned about health services for our nation’s females, do not miss this show.

Interview with Edward Mukiibi- Slow Food International Vice-President Ugandan Agronomist – 12.10.15

Edward Mukiibi was born and raised in the rural parts of Mukono District in Central Uganda. He attended a nearby rural school for his primary and secondary education. Agriculture was used as a form of punishment in both schools: experiencing firsthand the practice of shaping a young person’s attitude towards agriculture. Mukiibi graduated from Makerere University with honors in Agricultural Land Use Management in 2009, where he has also worked as a teaching assistant in the Soil Science Department. In 2006, Mukiibi founded Developing Innovations in School and Community Gardens (DISC), a project aimed at promoting community engagement and agricultural sustainability among the youth. Mukiibi’s involvement with Slow Food began in 2008. It was stimulated by a drought in Uganda whose destabilizing impacts were made far worse by the widespread mono-crop planting of a maize hybrid. By contrast, he argues, traditional agricultural practices provide stability: “If one takes a classic African farm, one finds there are fruit trees, vegetables…it’s thanks to this model that, over the years, Uganda has never known famine.” In 2014, at the age of 28, he was named Vice President of Slow Food International. With this recent appointment, Mukiibi helps to steer the work of the global network and to grow Slow Food’s 10,000 Gardens in Africa project.

Fearless Parent Radio – Health Lessons From Hollywood – 12.09.15

Guest // Suzanne Somers

Host // Kelly Brogan, MD

Yes, we want to be healthy. Once we stop nodding at the basic platitudes — sound sleep, regular exercise, smart nutrition — however, we’re left wrestling with the brutal realities of living in the real world:

It’s hard to be healthy. I’m not smart enough to reconcile so much conflicting information. Do whole grains promote health or cause inflammation?
I’m too busy to be healthy. Who has time for this? I run out of day before the end of my job and family obligations.
It’s stressful to be healthy. When I have free time, I want to chill out. I do not want to research about health.
It’s bad for my social and family life to be healthy. People think I’m weird or they feel implicitly criticized by my actions. My family wants to fire me.
It’s not enough to be healthy. I want to look good. What happens when the thing that’s healthy conflicts with the thing that makes me look and feel my best?
