We will have a number of speakers, most of whom are health care practitioners, who will address the issue of Chronic […]

    Disturbing Trend – Phthalates

    Tuesday, May 4th, 2010

    Over the years, I’ve lectured and at times ranted about the problem with phthalates in our environment. Well, I’m here to rant a little more because of a disturbing trend I’m seeing. When I get a call from a university medical center concerned with a dramatic increase in the number of under 30 year old […]

    A New Epilepsy Drug – Vimpat®

    Wednesday, July 22nd, 2009

    Finally, after 6 months of waiting, we were able to see a new neurologist and she suggested that we try Tasya on a new drug called Vimpat®. We were desperately trying to get our daughter off of Topamax® as it was hurting her cognitively and she was beginning to have breakthrough seizures again. So one […]

    General News From the World of Science

    Wednesday, May 20th, 2009

    Today’s blog is just a gathering of things I’ve learned recently while perusing the numerous journals I subscribe to. A recent issue of The Lancet published a study that says that if your BMI (body mass index) is 30-35 which is the definition of moderate obesity, you can expect to have 2-4 years cut off of […]

    DNA Testing – Good, the Bad and the Ugly

    Thursday, April 9th, 2009

    DNA testing is the latest fad to hit the health market. Companies like Navigenics are selling test kits that will supposedly tell you if you have increased risks for developing a number of diseases like Alzheimer’s, breast cancer, cardiovascular disease, macular degeneration and many more. From there, you can make the appropriate lifestyle changes that […]

    Possible Cautionary Use of Glycine in Prostate Cancer

    Tuesday, March 17th, 2009

    In the February 12, 2009 issue of Nature, researchers led by Sreekumar reported on the correlation between the progression of prostate cancer and the amino acid sarcosine. Sarcosine is derived from glycine and methionine through methylation pathways. Functionally low levels of vitamin B2, aka riboflavincan cause a build-up of sarcosine as well as low folic acid […]

    A New Podcast

    Tuesday, February 17th, 2009

    After taking a 2 1/2 month hiatus, I’ve gotten back into the “studio” and begun a new series of podcasts starting with the one today which is on a lab test I recommend everyone do at least once if not more over, the Environmental Pollutants Biomarker urine test from US Biotek, available from Lab Interpretation LLC.

    Not All CFL Bulbs Are The Same

    Monday, January 19th, 2009

    I recently received a newsletter from the Environmental Working Group, a lobby group for the environment in Washington D.C., which had some very important information in it. There is a lot of talk about the use of compact fluorescent light-bulbs but there is a problem with some of them because of excessive mercury. Which ones […]

    Another Set of Tips on Being Greener

    Wednesday, January 14th, 2009

    With the new Administration of President Barack Obama about to take office, it is our hope that a change will be made from decisions being made based on an agenda to one based on fact. Science has shown what kind of a global mark humans have made on our environment but the U.S. government has […]

    FDA Over the Moral Wall

    Thursday, December 18th, 2008

    In a stunning indictment, the Environmental Working Group, a Washington D.C. pro-environment lobby group, lambasted the FDA (Federal Drug Administration) for a recent uncovered secret document that stretches the imagination. The email that EWG sent out yesterday stunned even a jaded person like me. It read: “On Friday, December 12, the Environmental Working Group made […]
