    The Washington Post calls Lester Brown “one of the world’s most influential thinkers.” The Telegraph of Calcutta refers to him as “the guru of the environmental movement.” In 1986, the Library of Congress requested his personal papers noting that his writings “have already strongly affected thinking about problems of world population and resources.”


    Brown has authored or coauthored 54 books. One of the world’s most widely published authors, his books have appeared in some 40 languages. Among his earlier books are Man, Land and Food, World Without Borders, and Building a Sustainable Society. His 1995 book Who Will Feed China? challenged the official view of China’s food prospect, spawning hundreds of conferences and seminars.


    He is the recipient of many prizes and awards, including 25 honorary degrees, a MacArthur Fellowship, the 1987 United Nations’ Environment Prize, the 1989 World Wide Fund for Nature Gold Medal, and the 1994 Blue Planet Prize for his “exceptional contributions to solving global environmental problems.” In 2012, he was inducted into the Earth Hall of Fame Kyoto.


    On June 30, 2015, at the age of 81, he stepped down from the Earth Policy Institute and closed the Institute.  In July, 2014, Lester Brown was a guest of Mitchell’s on the Progressive Film Hour, focusing on the film Plan B. Go to: http://abetterworld.tv/lester-brown-film-plan-b.

    Avoiding sunlight has more risk factors than SMOKING

    in Health

    In a Swedish Study it was solidly understood that under-exposure of the sun, is much more dangerous to the health of a person than anyone in the scientific community had ever expected. In the beginning there were only three big lifestyle factors that endangered health, and those being, smokers, and being overweight and lack of workouts or activity. Now there is a fourth and that is adding the correct amount of good sunray (UV-B) to your daily lifestyle to improve health and to remain healthy.  Constantly blocking the sun from the skin, be it staying out of the sun, or the over-use of sunscreen has a devastating effect on the body's Vitamin D level. Tune in for the Rest Of The Story at 7PM tonight, Wed May 4---from the Aging Younger Show.

    ALS Crowd Radio: Dr. Paul Cox, PhD, Environmental Causes of ALS

    in Health

    S2:E3 Dr. Paul Alan Cox, Ph.D., Director of the Institute for Ethnomedicine, will speak about his research in finding and fighting the environmental causes of ALS.  Dietary exposure to an environmental toxin called BMAA may trigger ALS related symptoms.   Large doses of the dietary amino acid called L-serine may reduce the risk of BMAA exposure.  Dr. Cox published his most recent findings in the Proceedings of the British Royal Society published on Jan 20, 2016.


    A Harvard Ph.D., Paul Alan Cox has spent his career searching for new medicines by studying patterns of wellness and disease among indigenous peoples. For these efforts, TIME magazine named Cox one of 11 “Heroes of Medicine.” His work with indigenous peoples in preserving their island rain forests won him the Goldman Environmental Prize. Cox has published over 200 scientific papers and four books.


    He has held academic appointments at the University of California, Berkeley, Brigham Young University, the University of Melbourne, Uppsala University, the Swedish Agricultural University, and the University of Illinois, Chicago, and served as Director of the Congressionally-chartered National Tropical Botanical Gardens in Hawaii and Florida.


    Cox founded Seacology, the world’s premier environmental non-profit organization for island conservation, headquartered in Berkeley, California. Through partnerships with indigenous people, Seacology has now saved over 1.3 million acres of island rainforests and coral reefs in 56 nations. Throughout Polynesia, he is known by the chiefly title Nafanua.


    Cox currently serves as the Executive Director of the Institute for Ethnomedicine in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. His research there is focused on finding and fighting the causes of neurodegenerative disease including ALS and Alzheimer’s disease.
