  • Are we too clean? How changing a body’s microbes leads to illness | Claire Fraser

    Are we too clean? How changing a body’s microbes leads to illness | Claire Fraser   We are more obsessed with cleanliness than ever: we use antibacterial cleansers, we keep our children away from dirt, and we give out antibiotics with little regard for long-term effects. But in the process we are altering our microbiota, the microbes that live on and inside us. And it’s causing us to be more sick.   Claire M. Fraser, PhD, is a world-renowned scientist who launched a new field of study – microbial genomics and, through her ground-breaking research and pioneering leadership in this field, has fundamentally changed our understanding of the diversity and evolution of microbial life on Earth. Her collective work over two decades, has made sustained and transformational changes to our understanding of microbial biology.

  • Jeff Iliff: One more reason to get a good night’s sleep

    Jeff Iliff: One more reason to get a good night’s sleep   The brain uses a quarter of the body’s entire energy supply, yet only accounts for about two percent of the body’s mass. So how does this unique organ receive and, perhaps more importantly, rid itself of vital nutrients? New research suggests it has to do with sleep.

  • Stephen Friend: The hunt for “unexpected genetic heroes”

    Stephen Friend: The hunt for “unexpected genetic heroes”   What can we learn from people with the genetics to get sick — who don’t? With most inherited diseases, only some family members will develop the disease, while others who carry the same genetic risks dodge it. Stephen Friend suggests we start studying those family members who stay healthy. Hear about the Resilience Project, a massive effort to collect genetic materials that may help decode inherited disorders.

  • Obesity – The Clash Between Two Realities: Warren Peters

    Obesity – The Clash Between Two Realities: Warren Peters   What once saved us now kills us. With a powerful personal story Dr. Warren Peters sheds new light on the reality, biology, and brain chemistry behind obesity and shows us how to overcome our addiction to food.    Dr. Peters meets his patients every day with a broad smile and a passion to make complex things simple, so people can make those difficult healthy lifestyle changes which will enhance their wellbeing.    If asked, he will tell you that the first section of his medical career was in general surgery, where “if something is wrong with you, I will cut it out”. The next section was totally dedicated to lifestyle and natural medicines, where “if something is wrong with you, just try harder”. And finally, the last part of his career is dedicated to the molecular and genetic basis of obesity, “where if something is wrong with you, it is the fault of your parents and the changing environment”. Within these three perspectives, reside the virtues of common sense and wisdom.   He obtained his medical degree from Loma Linda University, his surgical training at the Mason Clinic in Seattle Washington, and, his Master’s degree in biostatistics and epidemiology from Loma Linda University. He is privileged to travel and lecture nationally and internationally on topics of nutrition, wholeness, and wellness. He has practiced surgical care, wholistic care, and, primary care in Washington, Maryland, Virginia, and California.   Dr. Peters gives much credit to his educator father, J.V. Peters, who insisted that his young son become proficient in the trades of dairy farming, the building trades, custom upholstery, and commercial salmon fishing before seeking his medical career. Working with your hands gives meaning to working with your mind.   Warren Peters finds joy and meaning in his life as he stimulates and challenges the young minds of tomorrow’s medical professions, who will go far beyond the current levels of biological understanding and human empathy. He often warns his students that he has only a few hours to bring alive within them, the sense of curiosity and wonder in their interactions with fellow human beings.
