Everything You’ve Been Told About Food is Wrong, Part 1
February 2, 2021
Dr. Tim Spector explains why almost everything we’ve been told about food is wrong in his new book “Spoon-Fed.” Dr. Spector is a UK-based physician/researcher who is an expert in gut health and nutritional epidemiology. He has pioneered the ZOE app which seeks to personalize nutrition recommendations based on artificial intelligence algorithms. Dr. Spector’s new book assails popular diet myths, e.g. one-size-fits-all diet claims; that weight gain is simply a matter of calories; universal recommendations for low-salt diets; coffee is bad for you; meat is harmful; exercise is all you need to stave off weight gain, and pesticides and herbicides that have been approved for human consumption are safe. He’s particularly concerned about the pervasiveness of ultra-processed foods in the U.S. and U.K. Dr. Spector previews a soon-to-be-released paper he’s been working on that links poor dietary habits to worse COVID outcomes. He maintains his research findings could provide the impetus for a major effort to reform diet policy in Western industrialized countries.

ENCORE: Fending Off Neurodegenerative Diseases, Part 1
January 27, 2021
Board-certified neurologist, Dr. Phillipe Douyon, creator of the BrainFit™️ app, joins us to talk about ways to support brain health and fend off neurodegenerative disease. We needn’t be resigned to progressive loss of brain function with aging, because new findings about neuroplasticity reveal that the brain can remodel and rejuvenate itself, actually regenerating brain cells and neural circuits. Dr. Douyon reveals why, with the limited success of drugs for conditions like Parkinson’s and ALS, we need to invoke a comprehensive lifestyle program to address brain health. This comprises sleep, stress reduction, exercise, social connection, avoidance of toxins, and diet. Even poor dental hygiene may influence brain health. Among the supplements that are helpful are fish oil, curcumin, B vitamins and antioxidants like alpha lipoic acid. Dr. Douyon, who specializes in the treatment of epilepsy reveals the role of ketogenic diets in patients who don’t respond to conventional treatment? Are refined carbs and gluten really potentially harmful to the brain? What role for the microbiome in brain health? Which drugs are memory robbers? Can statins have harmful effects on the brain?
