Everyone has a different opinion as to how children gain knowledge. Is it environment or genetics? Do you believe that children's morals and values are shaped by specific upbringing or mentally and psychologically ingrained no matter the environment?
How much of our children's basic temperament, their mental health, their intelligence, their learning disabilities, and all the things that make them who they are comes from their genes and how much from their environment. What can we learn about genetics vs. environment from the ongoing twin studies, including the study of twins separated at birth? Host Dawn Davenport, Executive Director of Creating a Family, the national infertility & adoption education and support organization, interviews three leading twin researchers: Dr. Matt McGue, Professor of Psychology at University of Minnesota, a behavioral and quantitative geneticist, Co-Director of Minnesota Twin Family Study and the Sibling Interaction and Behavior Study and Research on Adoption and adoptive dad; and Dr. Nancy Segal, Professor of Psychology, Director of the Twin Studies Center at California State University, Fullerton and author of Indivisible by Two: Lives of Extraordinary Twins and Entwined Lives: Twins and What They Tell Us About Human Behavior.

This is Jeanette Purkis's radio show where she and invited guests talk about all things Autism. Jeanette is an Autistic author, advocate and public speaker and is passionate about empowering people on the Autism spectrum to live fulfilled and positive lives. Jeanette is a keen advocate for inclusion and appropriate support for people with Autism spectrum conditions in such areas as employment, education, parenting and access to health services.
This week Jeanette will be speaking with Jeff Craig, an epigenetic researcher at the Murdoch Children's Research Institute. Jeanette has asked friends and contacts to come up with some questions for Jeff given that genetic research can be a little bit contentious. This show could generate some differences of opinion and robust discussion - often a good thing.
Jeff Craig decribes himself as a researcher at work and in the garden. In his early career, he was locked inside a dark room for a few years studying human chromosomes. Seven years ago he saw the light and started working with human early life cohorts, which made his life much more interesting. He now blames epigenetics for every chronic illness, spouts forth such phrases as "you are what your mother ate" and is just starting to produce evidence to support these ideas. He believes that students, General Practitioners, and the public need to know about his crazy ideas and frequently speaks to them to get feedback to inspire his research. He is also obsessed with twins and thinks that they hold the key to understanding to roots of all human health problems. Jeff's aim is to use the science of 'epigenetics' to detect autisms early and to help understand the causes and mechanisms of autisms.

Today Robert FitzGerald, Theoretical Astrologer and I are going to talk about the Astrological Roots of Gender Roles and the difference between Archetypes and Stereotypes.
Robert FitzGerald is the authtor of The Signs of the Times This is a fascinating account of how time and history follow an astrological structure. This structure consists of astrological ages that are chronicled from before the Age of Cancer, and the invention of agriculture around the world, to the present end of the Age of Pisces, and the much-prophesied Apocalyptic end of the world. Within this pattern an end-time cycle emerges that explains the Apocalyptic energies that we see around us today. Astrology also promises, in the coming Age of Aquarius, a new golden age and gives us indications of what needs to be done to survive this end-time. ~~~~~Robert FitzGerald is an artist, photographer, and theoretical astrologer. For more than 25 years, he has been pushing the boundaries of astrology into theories of religion, mythology, mathematics, genetics, geology and physics. [Name of your book] reveals a revolutionary vision of history based on the ancient cycles of astrology. His vision of life on this planet promises to change the way humanity looks at history and at the world around us. He grew up in California and now lives and works at Maharishi University of Management in Fairfield, Iowa, a community dedicated to expanding our knowledge of the world by combining spiritual knowledge with the scientific
Joyce speaks with Ellen Matloff, geneticist, about her newest venture, MyGeneCounsel.
Ellen Matloff, MS, CGC is the President and CEO of My Gene Counsel. Ellen is the founder and former director of the Cancer Genetic Counseling Program at Yale School of Medicine and a lead plaintiff in the 2013 United States Supreme Court gene patent case. Ellen has authored more than 50 scientific publications in the field, is an established educator, lecturer and media spokesperson and has received national awards for her ongoing patient advocacy efforts.
She was the 2013 honoree of ArtBra New Haven for her work with hereditary breast cancer, and particularly for helping to challenge the validity of patenting the genes for breast cancer.
Ellen’s area of special interest is BRCA I and BRCA II mutations, which vastly increase the probability of a carrier developing breast and/or ovarian cancer. For the past 18 years, she has been dedicated to patient and provider issues in cancer genetic counseling, and the impact of genetic patents on patients and clinical practice.
Ellen was one of the lead plaintiffs in Association of Molecular Pathology v. Myriad Genetics, the landmark case before the U.S. Supreme Court, which challenged the validity of patenting naturally-occurring substances from the human body. Myriad Genetics had patented the BRCA I and II genes, and held the monopoly on testing. This effectively froze research, and made necessary testing unaffordable for many patients, leaving them to make huge decisions about their treatment without vital information. Ellen worked tirelessly for the interests of breast cancer patients and their families.
Hair loss affects millions of men and women and is the most underdeveloped area of aesthetic medicine. Men and women with thinning or balding hair are more aware than ever of the clinical options available to them. Unlike other aesthetic procedures, however, clinical options often remain a mystery. For industry watchers, the consensus is that the aesthetic industry is on the edge of a tidal wave of new treatments for hair loss which will reshape the hair loss industry as we know it. Today we focus on one of these new products Formula 82M A Solution For Hair Loss. Causes of hair loss can be attributed to everything from hormones and stress to styling and genetics. Under normal conditions, the average person will “lose” approximately 100 hairs per day and grow 100 new hairs per day. However, the most common type of hair loss, hereditary male and female pattern hair loss, occurs as hair follicles miniaturize, weaken and eventually die—causing receding hairlines, decreased coverage and overall decreased volume. Dr. Alan Bauman, an internationally-renowned board-certified expert in hair restoration, has treated over 17,000 men and women at his practice in Boca Raton, FL. Dr. Bauman offers a variety of hair loss solutions including minimally-invasive no-linear-scar Neograft FUE hair transplant surgery, PRP Platelet Rich Plasma therapy, low level laser therapy, FDA-approved and custom-compounded oral medications, nutritionals and nutraceuticals and compounded pharmaceutical topical solutions such as “Formula 82M.” He also embraces a combination ‘multi-therapy’ approach to help patients reach their goals. Some might accomplish their goals using ONLY non-invasive treatments. So far Formula 82M has shown promising results.
