DR STEPHANIE SENEFF Senior Research Scientist at MIT Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory. Dr. Seneff explores the intersection between biology and computation, with an emphasis on human health and the environment. Dr. S discusses on this show: toxic chemicals causing micro-nutrient deficiencies, such as pesticides making us manganese deficient which then promotes mitochondrial dysfunction, autism and even cognitive decline. Dr. S. goes into depth on glyphosphates (Roundup) as being a pivotal cause of the rise of autism spectrum, gluten issues, Rheumatoid Arthritis, ALS, and even supports a new perspective of adverse consequences of vaccines. Dr. Seneff explains that non-veggie gel capsules of most supplements contains robust levels of Roundup as it is fed to the animal sources these capsules come from. Dr. Seneff is especially interested in combating diseases with wise, organic food choices. She shares what she eats (or rather her husband cooks, lucky duck). Seneff says that sulfur doesn't get enough respect. It is our micronutrient, hormonal and neurotransmitter Uber, transporting and maintaining healthy reserves of nutrients throughout the body. Dr. Seneff has authored 24 peer-reviewed journal papers over the past few years on these topics. She's been called a controversial scientist and a genius. Seneff and Berkson go at a speed that requires you to have full focus, inspires awe, enjoyment and lots of helpful info. She explains that Roundup might be the main reason why the US has astronomical health care costs. Glyphosate gets into proteins, by mistake, in place of glycine. This has huge adverse consequences throughout the body, damaging methylation, rinsing folate out of tissues, and partially explains the epidemic in opioid drug abuse. This chemical is scattered throughout your supermarket cart, in your your kid's crackers, cereals, and even inorganic garbanzo beans. Listen and really learn!

Dr. Erica Elliott pioneer in environmental medicine. Author of Prescriptions For A Healthy House.

She describes a dramatic case of a woman who was treated as a psychiatric patient for severe major depression for years, which turned out to be a chronic gas leak in her home (she loved to cook and used the stove often). Dr. EE has a blog she invites you to read and share that deals with medical controversies. Dr. Elliott and Dr. Berkson have taught two conferences on dealing with, and conquering severe illness—in Santa Fe, and at the Omega Institute.

Sleep apnea is a growing problem even in children. It's linked not only to heart disease, but many other issues such as osteoporosis, liver disease, resistant weight loss, depression, eye diseases and more. Why sleep apnea should be part of a differential diagnosis in every person with a serious illness. Sleep is 1/3rd of our lives and if our brain is not getting adequate oxygen then many adverse downstream issues can occur. Many doctors are not aware of the link between sleep apnea and various diseases such as polycythemia, or osteoporosis, or depression. You often have to request a sleep study test yourself. Be well by making sure you sleep well, only testing can really tell. It is not just a snoring overweight person's disease anymore. It might even be why your child is irritable and not doing well in school. Be smart. Sleep smart.
