Taking On the PBS Frontline Special on Supplements, Part 1
January 27, 2016
You saw the PBS Frontline Special on supplements—it was clearly a hit piece. Today we get the perspective of Dr. Daniel Fabricant, the CEO of the Natural Products Association, who faced withering questioning on Frontline. Are supplements really “unregulated” as alleged? Does the scientific evidence suggest they’re worthless, or even harmful? Does Congress really need to tighten the approval process for supplements? Should nutritional products be subject to the same pre-approval process as drugs? Were that to happen, what would happen to consumer choice and access to innovation? Are there bad players within the supplement industry? What is the industry doing to self-regulate in order to pre-empt a power grab by regulators? How can consumers safeguard themselves from poor quality or even outright harmful supplements? Click HERE for part 2.

Chelation Therapy’s Dramatic Effects, Part 1
January 21, 2016
Remember the big story about 2014’s TACT Study (the Trial to Assess Chelation Therapy)? Well, in light of its success, now there’s going to be a followup study, TACT 2. Dr. Tony Lamas, the TACT Director, joins us to discuss the implications of the original TACT Study, and what we can expect from TACT 2. The results of TACT were a surprise to the medical community—they strongly suggest that intravenous chelation with EDTA can reduce the risk of subsequent cardiac events in heart attack sufferers. The protective effect was particularly dramatic in diabetic patients. Why were the results greeted with such skepticism? Why isn’t chelation now being embraced by the medical community? Now that we know chelation works, do we know how? What additional information is being sought in TACT 2? What insights does TACT bring us for our understanding of how environmental heavy metals like lead and cadmium promote disease? Were the vitamins that patients took in the TACT Study beneficial?
