Friday on The Robert Scott Bell Show:
Is Sunscreen the New Margarine? How did we get it so wrong? How could people with low vitamin D levels clearly suffer higher rates of so many diseases and yet not be helped by supplementation? As it turns out, a rogue band of researchers has had an explanation all along. And if they’re right, it means that once again we have been epically misled. These rebels argue that what made the people with high vitamin D levels so healthy was not the vitamin itself. That was just a marker. Their vitamin D levels were high because they were getting plenty of exposure to the thing that was really responsible for their good health—that big orange ball shining down from above. One of the leaders of this rebellion is a mild-mannered dermatologist at the University of Edinburgh named Richard Weller. For years, Weller swallowed the party line about the destructive nature of the sun’s rays. “I’m not by nature a rebel,” he insisted when I called him up this fall. “I was always the good boy that toed the line at school. This pathway is one which came from following the data rather than a desire to overturn apple carts.”
Questions of The Day!
Hey Robert….I love your show….I have a question about myself. I went Organic about a year ago. I find myself very sensitive to everything. My skin has eczema and I can’t find a way to counter act this condition. Help please. I think I’ve tried almost everything.
Thanks for everything you do.
Hi Robert, I am wondering if you could possibly help me out. I am a little over overwhelmed in trying to figure out the best way to get a degree in holistic nutrition. I’m currently attending a community college in my area and do not wish to further my education towards a dietetics degree any longer. Would you recommend any (holistic/natural) nutrition schools or know of any? Should I even be concerned with finding a holistic nutrition school that is not certified by the U.S Dept of Education? Or any advice in general regarding my situation. Thanks in advance.
Hey guys I love the show and appreciate all you do,
My mom has rheumatoid arthritis and I want to get her off of those immune suppressing drugs… She is still in the beginning stage of it and I know there has to be a natural way to beat it…do you have any suggestions or know of anyone that could help?
Oral-B dental floss linked to toxic chemicals, study claims If your New Year’s resolution involved flossing, you may want to do your homework on what brand to buy before you stock up. According to a study conducted by the Silent Spring Institute and Public Health Institute in Berkeley, the popular Oral-B Glide floss may be exposing you to elevated levels of toxic chemicals. Specifically, the authors are concerned about the product containing perfluorooctanesulfonic acids (PFAS), The New York Post reported. However, a spokesman for Oral-B refuted the study’s findings after it was published. “We have confirmed none of the substances in the report are used in our dental floss,” the Oral-B spokesman said, in a statement emailed to Fox News. “The safety of the people who use our products is our top priority. Our dental floss undergoes thorough safety testing and we stand behind the safety of all our products.”
Legislature: Baby on Board Oregon could become first state with universal home visits for families of all babies. One of the more ambitious items tucked into Gov. Kate Brown’s agenda for 2019 is a home-visitation program for the families of new infants. All new infants. If enacted, Oregon would be the first state to provide up to three visits by a nurse or a similar health professional to every family with a new child. North Carolina has run a pilot program providing a similar service. But no state has a program as universal as the one envisioned for Oregon. The proposal is in Gov. Kate Brown’s budget for 2019-21. The proposed budget by Ways & Means — the Legislature’s budget-writing body — has not yet been set. But one of the people running that committee, Sen. Elizabeth Steiner Hayward of Beaverton, said universal home visits are a priority for her.
Diet Soda Linked to Risk for Diabetic Blindness Drinking diet soda may raise the risk for a severe type of diabetic eye disease that can lead to blindness, a new study says. The study, published in Clinical and Experimental Ophthalmology, is the first to evaluate the link between soft drinks and what’s called proliferative diabetic retinopathy. “In our clinical sample of people with diabetes, consuming more than four cans, or 1.5 liters, of diet soft drinks per week was associated with a twofold increased risk of having proliferative diabetic retinopathy,” first author Eva Fenwick, PhD, told Medscape Medical News. Fenwick is a clinical research fellow at the Singapore Eye Research Institute and an assistant professor at the Duke-NUS Medical School, Singapore. The study did not find the same results among those who drank regular, sugar-sweetened soft drinks.
A painful disease once known for afflicting wealthy kings is making a comeback, and fad diets like keto maybe partly to blame Feast like a king, and you could get gout like one too. The condition, a type of inflammatory arthritis, can arise when people load up on purine-rich foods and drinks — things like bacon, steak, scallops, veal, and alcohol. Eating and drinking too much of this stuff can cause harmful stores of uric acid to build up in our joints. That buildup can lead to sudden, painful gout symptoms in the hands and feet. Gout has been identified clinically since at least the time of ancient Egyptians, around 2640 BC. Traditionally, this form of arthritis affected only the small sliver of society that could afford rich meats and sugary alcohols — hence its reputation as the “disease of kings.” But no more. Gout is making a comeback across the US. The Lewin Group, a healthcare consulting firm, estimated in 2006 that the prevalence of gout across the country would increase by 38% by 2025. The condition already affects more than one in 25 Americans and is the most common form of inflammatory arthritis, according to the Arthritis Foundation.
Al Roker Slams Jillian Michaels For ‘Bullying’ In Bitter Keto Conflict Al Roker ripped into Jillian Michaels in a bitter battle of the bulge, calling her out for her latest diet advice and slamming her for “bullying” while she was a Biggest Loser coach. The NBC TODAY Show host, who has struggled with his weight for decades and admitted he was 340 pounds at his heaviest, wrote a nasty Tweet about Michaels’ latest health take where she slammed the keto diet in an interview. “So @JillianMichaels says #Keto is a bad idea. This from a woman who promoted on camera bullying , deprivation, manipulation and more weekly in the name of weight loss. Now those sound like bad ideas,” Roker wrote. Michael’s was a trainer for multiple seasons on the 10-year run of NBC’s The Biggest Loser , which Roker, also an NBC employee, pointed out in his tweet. Michaels gave an interview where she ripped the trendy keto diet, saying: “I don’t understand. Like, why would anyone think this is a good idea?” she told Women’s Health magazine.
Researchers confirm links between aggressive prostate cancer and hereditary breast cancer Aggressive prostate cancer, one of the leading causes of cancer deaths in men, is associated with BRCA2 mutations, which are also linked to hereditary breast cancer, ovarian cancer and pancreas cancer, among others. The finding was confirmed in a study, published in the Journal of Clinical Oncology, led by Elena Castro, Nuria Romero-Laorden and David Olmos, from the Prostate Cancer Clinical Research Unit at the Spanish National Cancer Research Centre (CNIO). It reveals that family members of patients with prostate cancer who carry BRCA2 and DNA-repair gene mutations have an increased risk of developing cancer and should be evaluated in familial cancer prevention programmes.
