Date Host George Noory
Guests Dr. Joel Wallach, Jeffrey K. Lyons

In the first half, Dr. Joel Wallach addressed alternative health approaches and the benefits of remedies and supplements that aid in the body's recovery from many diseases and ailments. One of his findings is that plaque in the arteries has nothing to do with cholesterol in one's diet-- rather it's oxidized oils. Each year, "50,000 kids under the age of 12 have heart attacks from eating microwaved popcorn," he contended, "because the heat from the microwave produces these trans fats that cause plaque in the arteries." For the problem of insomnia, he recommended CBD oil and such herbs as valerian and chamomile.

On the topic of SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome), Wallach cited that such deaths were significantly reduced nationwide when the mineral selenium was added to baby formulas. There are actually eight different types of dementia, he reported, though doctors often just refer to the condition as Alzheimer's. The disease, he continued, is a cholesterol deficiency, so he recommends that patients eat a lot of eggs in their daily diet.


With a Ph.D. in communications, Jeffrey K. Lyons has taught college courses in broadcasting, speech, advertising, group communication, and more. In the latter half, he discussed his fascination with evolutionary theory, how it became popular and why some scientists are gathering the courage to question its scientific merit. While neo-Darwinism has become a kind of dogma across the sciences, a lot of the conclusions are based on inferences and guesses rather than actual evidence, Lyons pointed out. Interestingly, Darwin never even used the word "evolution" until the sixth edition of his book on the origin of species, and was critical of the term.

Darwin argued that species are modified over time in natural selection, but it was the philosopher Herbert Spencer who pushed the term evolution, which Lyons finds is used in an unscientific manner. The early genetic researcher Gregor Mendel's work didn't line up with Darwinism, Lyons cited, and it took mathematical models to reconfigure Darwin's conclusions, which then became known as neo-Darwinism. He also brought up the work of Francis Crick who discovered DNA. Crick declared there's no way DNA could have developed by chance as it's far too complex.
