What’s Making Our Children Sick? Part 1
December 19, 2017
There’s an epidemic of chronic childhood diseases, ranging from asthma and allergies, obesity and diabetes, pediatric cancers, GI conditions, autoimmunity, and ADHD, autism, depression and bipolar disorder. Why the sudden uptick? Veteran integrative pediatrician Dr. Michelle Perro, co-author of "What's Making Our Children Sick?: How Industrial Food Is Causing an Epidemic of Chronic Illness, and What Parents (and Doctors) Can Do About It," says it’s largely due to industrialized food, which is highly refined, bereft of nutrients, chemicalized, and genetically modified. She explains how GMO foods undermine kids’ health. Many problems can be traced to alterations of the microbiome and leaky gut syndrome. She argues for “food-focused medicine.” Dr. Perro cites examples of how diet change can reverse devastating illnesses. She outlines which supplements she prefers for kids. Prevention starts with pre-natal nutrition and detoxification. Click HERE for part 2.

Are mushrooms a “brain food”? Part 1
December 12, 2017
Dr. Robert Beelman, Professor Emeritus of Food Science and Director of the Penn State Center for Plant and Mushroom Products for Health, shares his latest research. A new study demonstrates that mushrooms are high in glutathione and ergothioneine, potent antioxidant compounds with anti-aging potential. In addition to these antioxidants, mushrooms are rich sources of fiber, vitamin D, as well as beta glucans, an important immune-enhancing polysaccharide. Dr. Beelman details research that suggests that consumption of ergothioneine confers protection against neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s Disease and multiple sclerosis. Daily consumption of a handful of commercial button mushrooms can deliver these benefits. Do cooking methods impact the delivery of healthy mushroom compounds? Do mushrooms deserve the reputation that they are grown in manure? How best to store mushrooms? Are Shitake, porcini, oyster and lion’s mane mushrooms even more potent sources of ergothioneine? What’s “Brain Boost Bread”? Click HERE for part 2.
