Last Show Recap

Diet & Health

First half guest Dr. Glen MacPherson has researched and documented a Hum heard by people all over the world. The sound is louder indoors than outdoors, and louder late at night than during the afternoon. In the more serious cases, the Hum can affect quality of life; in a number of documented instances, the torment of the noise has been life-altering. MacPherson shared the latest from his scientific investigation into the phenomenon, which seems to indicate that the culprit may be electromagnetic pollution by Very Low Frequency (VLF) waves. This was followed in the second half by Open Lines.

Diet & Health

Show Archive
Date: Tuesday - June 21, 2011
Host: George Noory
Guests: Elizabeth Plourde, Nora Gedgaudas

Nutritional therapist Nora Gedgaudas argued that much of what has been presented to the public about an optimal food diet is wrong, and that for the best health people should eat more like our Ice Age ancestors did. The development of agriculture has actually led to a decline in human health compared to the hunter/gatherer societies, she said. We're designed to eat meat, fish, eggs, fibrous plant foods, and some nuts and fruit, but not the large amounts of sugar and starch that are part of the carbohydrate diet, she continued.

By eating animal proteins and fat the body is satiated longer, and doesn't experience the dips in blood sugar seen in a carbohydrate-based diet, Gedgaudas outlined. She suggested avoiding agricultural products like soy that we're not genetically adapted to, as well as bread, and other foods containing gluten. Gluten sensitivity has become a huge problem, she noted.

In terms of eating meats, she pointed out that people only need around 3 oz. or so of protein per meal, and that too much protein can trigger cancerous processes. Moderate caloric restriction with optimal nutrition is a good approach to health and longevity, she commented, and as long as you avoid sugar and starch, you can have as many fibrous vegetables & greens as you want-- cooked, cultured, or raw.

Sunscreen Dangers

First hour guest, clinical laboratory scientist Dr. Elizabeth Plourde discussed her research on sunscreen lotion which she contends is creating numerous health and environmental concerns, such as killing the coral reefs, and ironically contributing to an increase in cases of skin cancer. As an alternative to using chemical sunscreens, which she has labeled a "biohazard," Plourde suggested that the antioxidants derived from eating a good diet will rise up in the skin and act as natural protection from the sun.
