ENCORE: Screen Addiction Among Kids, Part 1
December 28, 2016
The devastating effects of screen addiction among kids: Dr. Nicholas Kardaras discusses his book “Glow Kids: How Screen Addiction is Hijacking Our Kids and How to Break the Trance.” Why do experts now refer to an epidemic of "digital crack” afflicting children and teenagers? Do the brain changes associated with screen addiction resemble those of alcohol and drug abuse? Can hooked individuals go through physical and psychological withdrawal? How can you tell if your kid is screen addicted? Are schools doing youngsters a disfavor by giving them touchscreen devices in the classroom? How are conditions like psychosis, depression, anxiety, ADD and ADHD, aggressive behavior, moodiness, insomnia, obesity and metabolic syndrome linked to screen time? Are there ANY redeeming features to digital proficiency for success in the modern world? Are children becoming desensitized to violence? What will be the effects of new holographic and 3D technologies? How can you set limits for kids’ use of electronic devices? How young is too young? What initiatives are certain countries taking to stem the tide of digital dependency? What’s a “digital detox”? Why should parents sign a “Technology Opt-Out Letter"? Click HERE for part 2.

The Health Benefits of Cranberries, Part 1
December 27, 2016
Recently, the press parroted the results of a "Journal of the American Medical Association" research paper that concluded that cranberry doesn’t work to prevent UTIs. “It’s time to move on [to antibiotics]," a JAMA editorial proclaimed. The media message: “The Cure for UTIs? It’s not Cranberries.” Dr. Amy Howell, for over 2 decades a research scientist at Rutgers University’s Marucci Center for Blueberry and Cranberry Research, pushes back against these unwarranted conclusions. She dissects the JAMA article, and finds it far from conclusive—in fact highly flawed. Why did JAMA publish an article so lacking in scientific rigor? Does it reflect an inherent bias against supplements and natural modalities? What previous research supports the preventive effects of cranberry extracts and juice against UTIs? What are proanthocyanidins? What forms of cranberry are best, and how much do you need to take? What other benefits do cranberries confer for the gut, the brain, the circulatory system, for immunity, even against cancer? The take home message is to be wary of dumbed-down, unbalanced media accounts; cranberries deliver many health dividends. Click HERE for part 2.
