Dr. Wallach starts the show discussing the growing problem of obesity in the U.S. Blaming this epidemic on the medical industry because they approach weight gain as a disease of excess. Doc asserts that weight gain and obesity is actually a problem of mineral deficiencies. He outlines several products and programs available through Youngevity that aid in weight loss.
Pearls of Wisdom
Doug Winfrey and Dr. Wallach discuss a news article on an Irish study of AMD (age-related macular degeneration). The study identified a part of the immune system called the inflammasome as being involved in the onset of this disease. Researchers discovered that controlling an inflammatory component could possibly prevent the "dry" form of AMD from developing the "wet" form. Doc asserts that although the researchers made a great observation AMD is not an auto-immune disorder. But rather is due to free radical damage to the retina and can be reversed through nutritional supplementation.
