ENCORE: The Health Benefits of Cranberries, Part 1
January 1, 2019
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.

ENCORE: Heart Disease Early Detection, Part 1
December 27, 2018
Albert Barrette, Managing Director of Inner Imaging in New York City, is a pioneer in diagnostic radiology. He was an early proponent of EBT (Electron Beam Tomography) for early detection of heart disease. What is calcium scoring? Why is it more sensitive than a stress test? Why is it that traditional risk factors (family history, cholesterol, diabetes, hypertension, smoking, obesity, etc.) are poor predictors of heart disease risk? Why do a large percentage of patients who suffer heart attacks have normal cholesterol? And, why, paradoxically, are some patients with multiple risk factors free of coronary calcium? Does a "zero" score on the EBT test guarantee freedom from heart risk? Who should get screened, and at what age? Why don't all doctors recommend this test? Why do only some states mandate insurance reimbursement for it? Do you need a prescription to get a scan? How much radiation does it expose you to? Click HERE for part 2.
