Last Show Recap

Food & Health/Bigfoot Search

First half: Before Frank Alisio Juarez III (aka Frank Shamrock) was known as ‘’The Legend"—winning almost every mixed martial arts (MMA) title in existence—he endured a childhood marred with abuse that led to a troubled young adulthood. He joined George Knapp to discuss how this created a fighter who would go on to dominate the sport for the next two decades.

Second half: Beatles expert, Chuck Gunderson, discussed the 50th Anniversary of the ground breaking album Revolver and the group's three world tours from 1964 to 1966. Gunderson recalled the controversy surrounding John Lennon's "Bigger than Jesus" statement and how this affected their troubled 1966 world tour.

Food & Health/Bigfoot Search

Show Archive
Date: Thursday - August 16, 2007
Host: George Noory
Guests: Matt Moneymaker, Dr. Neal Barnard, Cliff Barackman

During the first half of the show, Dr. Neal Barnard, president of the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, discussed health aspects of food and nutrition, and also addressed the problem of food contamination. Americans eat one million animals per hour, he reported, and because of the conditions in which they are raised and processed, E. coli. and salmonella often get into the food supply.

A staunch advocate of a vegan diet, Barnard said that meat, poultry, fish and dairy all contain a lot of fat, and can be associated with health problems, according to several studies. For instance, animal protein consumption is the biggest predictor for loss of kidney function, men who drink milk are more likely to get prostate cancer, and diabetes is associated with fat droplets in muscle cells interfering with insulin, he detailed. The website NutritionMD.org is a good source for dietary tips and information, he recommended.

In the second half of the program, Matt Moneymaker and Cliff Barackman of BFRO gave an update on the continued search for Bigfoot. Barackman spoke about his use of thermal imaging equipment, which sees in the infrared spectrum and picks up the heat signatures of animals. The equipment is particularly useful as it allows them to see and record images in the dark.

Moneymaker reported on a recent Bigfoot expedition in Michigan, which he said garnered a lot of media attention. Their team played Bigfoot-type sounds in the wild and heard similar call back responses. The creatures have a big lung capacity, so their calls can be differentiated, from say, a coyote, he noted. Sasquatch are indeed physical, but because people often report odd sensations when they are near by (possibly due to infrasound or subtle odors), the creatures have been tagged as paranormal, Moneymaker commented.
