The Infectious Myth – Dr. Joel Wallach on Nutrition – 10.04.16

Dr. Joel Wallach learned about the importance of good nutrition while a veterinarian. He applied this knowledge to humans and now runs a company that sells a supplement that contains 91 minerals, amino acids and other types of nutrients. David accepts that many people on a western diet are nutrient deprived, and that the importance of trace nutrients is often ignored, although it is well documented. During the discussion it becomes obvious that David believes that some of Wallach’s statements are exaggerated, such as that the vast majority of people are gluten intolerant, that there is no value in physical exercise and that dog food is highly nutritious for humans. On the other hand, David has no trouble believing that some people can significantly benefit from supplementation, particularly those injured by vaccines, pharmaceutical drugs, chemical exposures or for numerous other reasons. They also agree that the low fat, high carbohydrate diet is a disaster. We hope you enjoy this vigorous discussion.

Lucy Goodchild Van Hilten – Those Burgers Aren’t Just Making Us Fat—They’re Messing With Our Immune Systems, Too

A junk food diet is clearly not healthy. Burgers widen our waistlines, raise our cholesterol levels and tighten our arteries. But scientists now think that even before it shows up as additional pounds on the scale, junk food is changing our bodies in other, surprising ways. It’s actually a form of malnutrition that could be making our immune systems attack …

Jonathan Pettitt – Sci-fi still influences how society thinks about genes—it’s time we caught up

We used to think that our fate was in the stars. Now we know in large measure, our fate is in our genes. When the Nobel laureate and co-discoverer of the DNA double helix James Watson made his famous statement in 1989, he was implying that access to a person’s genetic code allows you to predict the outcome of their life. The troubling implications …

Frederick L. Coolidge – Meat, Vegetarians, and the Evolution of Gut Flora

Increased meat in ancient hominin diets, beginning about 3 million years ago, meant that guts (large and small intestines) could become shorter because they could extract more expeditious calories in shorter lengths. This change in diet was directly responsible for the steady development of bigger brains beginning at this time. But what other factors might have helped the natural selection for shorter …

Running helps mice slow cancer growth

Here’s one more benefit of exercise: mice who spent their free time on a running wheel were better able to shrink tumors (a 50% reduction in tumor size) compared to their less active counterparts. Researchers found that the surge of adrenaline that comes with a high-intensity workout helped to move cancer-killing immune (NK) cells toward lung, liver, or skin tumors …

Plant extract shows promise in treating pancreatic cancer

A natural extract derived from India’s neem tree could potentially be used to treat pancreatic cancer, according to a new study in the journal Scientific Reports. Biomedical scientists at Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center El Paso (TTUHSC El Paso) tested nimbolide, a compound found in neem leaves, against pancreatic cancer in cell lines and mice. The results revealed that nimbolide can stop pancreatic cancer’s …

Michael T. Murray – New miracle compound from outer space improves memory and lowers LDL cholesterol levels

Scientists have discovered a compound – found in interstellar dust – that also acts to generate the spark of life in every living cell in our body with nearly unlimited potential to improve human health. This compound, PQQ (short for pyrroloquinoline quinone) acts as a necessary active factor in the functioning of mitochondria, the energy producing compartments within living cells. …
