Achieving Age-Defying Athletic Performance, Part 1
March 18, 2021
Dr. David Minkoff is an integrative physician, and at 72, a champion amateur athlete, training this season for his 44th full Ironman Triathlon. He relates the story of his career transformation from conventional medicine to the founding of Lifeworks Wellness Center in 1997 after his wife developed a debilitating illness that eluded medical diagnosis. It turned out she had mercury toxicity, and detoxification alleviated her symptoms. That decisive event launched Dr. Minkoff’s investigation of alternative methodologies. He attributes his age-defying athletic performance to careful nutrition—he follows a very low carb diet and monitors his blood sugar with a continuous glucose monitor. He uses an Oura ring too monitor his physiologic state, and budgets time for adequate sleep and recovery. He’s also a proponent of amino acid supplementation and has formulated his own performance-enhancing formula, PerfectAmino. Dr. Minkoff also takes an array of nutritional supplements.

The Travails of a Victim of Glyphosate Exposure, Part 1
March 16, 2021
Investigative journalist Carey Gillam chronicles the travails of a victim of glyphosate exposure in "The Monsanto Papers: Deadly Secrets, Corporate Corruption and One Man’s Search for Justice." She details the lead-up to a decisive trial which resulted in massive penalties for the makers of Roundup. The court rendered a verdict that implicated glyphosate in thousands of cases of cancer—but the final chapter has yet to be written; plaintiffs attorneys and victims are fighting Bayer’s latest settlement offer. And it’s not just about cancer; Gillam describes the more pervasive, insidious effects of industrial chemicals on human health and the environment. Her latest investigation traces US efforts to foist GMO agriculture on developing nations, some of which are pushing back to maintain sovereignty and safeguard their inhabitants.
