How science news often leads us astray

Healthy by Nature radio show this week
Women as well as men need the hormone testosterone. However, we will likely focus more on how guys suffer when their levels are low. You’ve probably heard TV commercials promoting testosterone for virility and physical strength. There is also a growing problem of infertility due to low sperm counts. I’ll ask my first guest, Michael Schwartz about that and about natural remedies. Next, I will be more of a guest than host as a surprise co-host grills me about digestion, detoxification, probiotics and how we can learn what we need to know for optimum health.

 Another case of “buyer beware”


“Experts” urging us to take this drug, that surgery or some test cite scientific studies. The proof isn’t always what it is cracked up to be. In the blog I review some of the ways the studies fail us. Of particular is a buried study that showed something that dramatically cut the risk of cancer.

Have you seen a viral email or an ad in a magazine making seemingly outlandish claims for apple cider vinegar? My first guest, Larry Trivieri, Jr., has done the research and helped us separate myth from natural magic. He is the author of Apple Cider Vinegar: Nature’s Most Versatile and Powerful Remedy. Speaking of outlandish claims, the government propaganda that vitamin D is only important for bones is crazy talk. It appears that the sunshine vitamin may well be protective against allergies, arthritis, asthma, autism, autoimmune conditions, brain problems, breast cancer, depression, diabetes, dementia, heart disease, infections, pain and well most everything including death from all causes.

My second guest, Richard W. Walker, Jr., MD, returned to talk about vitamin D. Please be doubly sure to tell your African American friends to listen to this show which could be a lifesaver for them. Deficiency of vitamin D is a major problem in that community and is reflected in their worrisome health statistics. Dr. Walker’s book is African-American Healthy: What You Need to Know to Protect Your Health. Check out the non-profit Vitamin D
