Why is Scurvy Making a Comeback? Part 1
April 4, 2017
Dr. Jonathan Lamb, author of "Scurvy: The Disease of Discovery," does a deep-dive on the history of scurvy. Contrary to what we learned in school, it wasn’t “cured” by Sir James Lind in the 1700s after he began advising the British Navy to stock citrus fruit for long voyages (hence the origin of the term “Limeys”). It took years before nutritional science characterized ascorbic acid in the 1930s. It’s estimated that the death toll of scurvy exceeds that of US Civil War. What does vitamin C do in the body? Why are humans among the few species who can’t synthesize it and must obtain it from outside sources? What are the symptoms of scurvy? How is scurvy reflected in literature, from “Rime of the Ancient Mariner” by Samuel Taylor Coleridge to “1984” by George Orwell? Why is scurvy making a comeback in the 21st Century? Why might the body require more vitamin C when under stress? Could there be a rationale for high-dose oral or even intravenous vitamin C? Click HERE for part 2.

Fighting Alzheimer’s, Part 1
March 30, 2017
Amy Berger, author of "The Alzheimer's Antidote," challenges the current paradigm whereby we search for blockbuster drugs to inhibit amyloid plaque in the brain. To date, promising "magic bullet" cures have been ineffective at reversing dementia. Instead she proposes a comprehensive metabolic and lifestyle approach, which has been validated in early clinical trials. What does insulin have to with the decline of brain function? How can low-carb and ketogenic diets help? Why might a low cholesterol diet be harmful for the brain? What role for medium chain triglycerides? What supplements can slow progression? Why is exercise beneficial for staving off cognitive decline? What role does chronic stress play? Why might certain drugs (statins, acid blockers, etc.) accelerate mental decline? What tests predict risk for dementia? Is there a gluten connection? Does high homocysteine forecast memory problems? Click HERE for part 2.
