  • Dr. Robert Lustig: Beating the Odds Against Sugar & Obesity

    in Health

    Dr. Robert Lustig -- whose video, Sugar: The Bitter Truth, went viral on YouTube -- is my guest on today's Gab with the Gurus.
    Dr. Lustig is author of the bestseller, Fat Chance: Beating the Odds Against Sugar, Processed Food, Obesity, and Disease.
    He has spent 16 years treating childhood obesity and studying sugar's effects on the central nervous system and metabolism. He is Director of the UCSF Weight Assessment for Teen and Child Health Program and a member of the Obesity Task Force of the Endocrine Society.
    Kudos to Dr. Lustig for bringing much-needed attention to this issue, as I noted previously on my Sugar Shock Blog and my Huffington Post Blogs.. In this Gab with the Gurus Show, Dr. Lustig will:
    Debunk the much-cited notion about calories. He'll tell you that a calorie is not a calorie. Explain how chronic disease has skyrocketed in the past 30 years and tell you how the food industry has played a major role by pouring more and more sugar into their foods--which has disastrously altered our biochemistry and made our eating habits veer out of control. Give you ideas to readjust your key hormones to help you shed weight and regulate your hunger. Share societal strategies to improve the health of the next generation. Please spread the word about this exciting show to your friends and fans.

  • Stem Cells and Neurological Diseases: Facts and Fiction

    in Health

    Curing vision loss, growing  new skin for burn patients, growing blood vessels, and curing neurological diseases. These are a few of the proposed benefits from stem cell therapy. Embryonic stem cell research has been a source of political debate and controversy, but adult stem cells exist throughout our body after embryonic development and there is some evidence to suggest that they can differentiate to become other cell types. This potential capacity for adult stem cells to be instructed to specialize interests scientists and researchers who hope it will lead to a cure for Parkinson's and other neurological diseases.
    Separating stem cell fact from fiction will be the role of my guest, Dr. Juan R. Sanchez-Ramos,   Movement Disorders Professor and Researcher, Department of Neurology, USF Health, Tampa, Fl.  Dr. Ramos’ Clinical interests include: neurodegenerative diseases with focus on Huntington’s and Parkinson's disease. His research interests include: neurodegeneration, neurotoxicology and adult stem cell biology. Dr. Ramos is the Medical Director for the Parkinson Research Foundation, and provides monthly Ask the Doctor lectures at its community based program, Parkinson Place in Sarasota, Florida.
