The Perils of Processed Foods and Conventional Produce, Part 1
August 20, 2019
Former FDA official Dr. Renee DuFault, author of "Unsafe at Any Meal: What the FDA Does Not Want You to Know About the Foods You Eat," highlights the perils of processed foods and conventional produce—they act as “Trojan Horses” for a slew of dangerous compounds including mercury and other heavy metals, dangerous herbicides like glyphosate, and pesticides like malathion and chlorpyrifos. In particular, high fructose corn syrup is laden with mercury; its consumption has soared over eight thousand percent since its introduction into the U.S. food supply in the 1970s. In addition to its caloric impact, the mercury it delivers can act as a metabolic poison contributing to risk of obesity and diabetes. In fact, studies show that processed foods promote overweight and blood sugar dysregulation beyond their energy contribution. Avoiding processed foods and eating locally-sourced foods free of contamination has been conclusively shown to help consumers shed pounds. Even popular gluten-free, “natural” products can be unsuspected sources of environmental toxins. Dr. Dufault offers practical tips on how to avoid the perils of the modern food supply.

DNA testing: Is it ready for Prime-Time? Part 1
August 15, 2019
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?
