  • How Fruits and Vegetables Can Treat Asthma
    In my video Preventing Asthma With Fruits and Vegetables, I highlighted an international study of asthma and allergies involving more than a million kids. The study found a consistent inverse relationship between prevalence rates of asthma, allergies, and eczema and the intake of plants, starch, grains, and vegetables. Researchers speculated “over a (...more)

  • How Fruits and Vegetables Can Prevent Asthma
    Asthma is the most common chronic disease in children and the prevalence is increasing around the world. Despite this, most research dollars are spent on adult chronic disease. “One might ask,” a group of researchers posited “whether this is because our politicians and senior administrators feel themselves to be more likely to suffer from the […] (...more)

  • Our Tax Dollars Subsidize Unhealthy Foods
    Why do food companies sell junk? Because unhealthy commodities are highly profitable. This is in part because of their “low production cost, long shelf-life, and high retail value,” which create perverse incentives for industries to market and sell more junk. In a study highlighted in my video, Taxpayer Subsidies for Unhealthy Foods, researchers (...more)

  • Reducing Arsenic in Chicken and Rice
    In 2013, Maryland became the first state to ban the feeding of an arsenic-containing drug to chickens. This arsenic-containing drug is used to control parasites and gives chicken meat an “appealing pink color.” In 2011, the FDA found that the livers of chickens fed this drug had elevated levels of inorganic arsenic, a known human […] (...more)

  • How Contaminated Are Our Children?
    In a study highlighted in my video, California Childen Are Contaminated, researchers analyzed the diets of California children ages two through seven to determine the cancer and non-cancer health effects from food contaminant exposures. It turns out food may be the primary route of exposure to toxic heavy metals, persistent pollutants, and pesticides. (...more)

  • Living Longer by Reducing Leucine Intake
    Many studies have shown that calorie restriction, without malnutrition, can increase lifespan and lower the risk of age-related diseases, such as cancer. However, for many people, calorie restriction clearly has its drawbacks. In the classic Minnesota Starvation Study, many of the volunteers suffered a preoccupation with food, constant hunger, binge (...more)

  • Exploiting Autophagy to Live Longer
    Thanks to advances in modern medicine, we are living longer lives, but we’re doing it by lengthening the morbidity phase. In other words, we live longer, but sicker, lives (see my video: Americans Are Live Longer, but Sicker Lives). So, traditional medicine increases the number of old people in bad health. Ideally, though, we’d extend lifespan (...more)

  • New DVD Reviews Best Bowel Movement Science
    Of all human bodily functions, defecation has been described as perhaps the least studied and the least understood. Elimination doesn’t just remove wastes from the body, but may play a vital role in hormonal, cholesterol, and bile acid regulation. Some have even advocated for bowel habits to be considered a vital sign, right alongside pulse […] (...more)

  • Blood Type Diet Perceived as “Crass Fraud”
    It was Adolf Hitler who coined a propaganda technique he called, “The Big Lie,” arguing that people may be more likely to believe colossal untruths, because they would not believe that others could have the impudence to distort the truth so infamously, so in the big lie there is always a certain force of credibility.

  • Why Do Heart Doctors Favor Surgery and Drugs Over Diet?
    When he was a surgeon at the Cleveland Clinic, Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn Jr. published a controversial paper in the American Journal of Cardiology, highlighted in my video, Fully Consensual Heart Disease Treatment, noting that heart bypass operations carry significant risks including the potential to cause further heart damage, stroke, and brain dysfunction.
