ENCORE: A Revolution In Our Understanding of Vitamin D, Part 1
October 12, 2021
The latest installment in our free-ranging discussions about vitamin D with Dr. John Cannell, founder and CEO of the Vitamin D Research Council. The “elephant in the room”: skeptics have lately pushed back on the efficacy of vitamin D and impugned the motives of top vitamin D researcher Michael Holick MD. Sounds “too good to be true”—-how could vitamin D be so beneficial for such a myriad of conditions? What are the autoimmune benefits of vitamin D? What are the latest findings linking low D levels to breast cancer risk? Is oral vitamin D supplementation equivalent to getting it the natural way—via the sun? What are optimal levels of D? Why is it that individuals require such different levels of supplementation? What about D in pregnancy? For athletic performance? For fending off colds and flus? For diabetes? For autism? Are certain formulations of D superior to others? Click HERE for part 2.

ENCORE: DNA testing: Is it ready for Prime-Time? Part 1
September 16, 2021
Dr. Sharon Hausman-Cohen, Chief Medical Director of IntellxxDNA, shares her perspective on the genetic testing revolution. What’s the difference between a mutation and a SNP (single nucleotide polymorphism)? How does the IntellxxDNA test differ from, say, 23andMe? Isn’t it potentially scary to find out you have a “bad” gene, like the ApoE4 gene that’s associated with Alzheimer’s Disease risk? Can genetic risk factors be overcome with diet, exercise, and targeted supplements? IntellxxDNA pinpoints obesity genes, genes that predispose to diabetes and heart disease, macular degeneration, autoimmune disorders, thyroid problems and osteoporosis. Certain SNPs predict the likelihood of neurodegenerative diseases when exposed to environmental toxins like mercury and glyphosate. Others may dictate higher requirements for antioxidants, B vitamins, magnesium, vitamin D, and choline. Why is the IntellxxDNA test only available through health practitioners? Some critics say genetic testing is only in its infancy and not yet ready for primetime—is this mistaken? What can genomic testing tell us about remedial strategies for autism?
