Expanded Discussion Topics:

  • Almonds for Osteoporosis  
    Currently, an estimated ten million Americans suffer from osteoporosis, causing more than a million fractures, including hundreds of thousands of hip fractures, a common reason people end up in nursing homes. Many older women say they’d rather be dead than break their hip and end up in a home.

  • The Palatability of Cancer Prevention  
    The most extensive report on diet and cancer in history is constantly being updated with all the new research. In their update on colorectal cancer a few years ago, they implicated various meats including processed meat as a highly convincing cause of colorectal cancer. More recently, processed meat was confirmed as a carcinogen by the World Health Organization. 

  • Alzheimer’s Disease, Copper, and Saturated Fat  
    Though the underlying cause of Alzheimer’s disease has yet to be found, there is an increasing burden of proof on the role of metals in the development of the disease. Iron and copper, for example, are strongly concentrated within the plaques and tangles that represent the hallmarks of the Alzheimer’s brain.

  • How to Counter the Inflammation of Aging  
    One of the most recognized consequences of aging is a decline in immune function, illustrated by vulnerability to dying from the flu and poor response to vaccinations. But, about 20 years ago, a paper was published showing that the immune cells of 80-year-olds produced significantly more pro-inflammatory signals, suggesting the worst of both worlds: a decline in the part of the immune system that fights specific infections and an aggravation of nonspecific overreactions that can lead to inflammation.
