    Could Environmental Toxins Be a Cause of Parkinson’s Disease? Featuring Former U.S. Congressman Jack Quinn

    Could Environmental Toxins Be a Cause of Parkinson’s Disease? Featuring Former U.S. Congressman Jack Quinn

    Scientists are working to better understand the broad range of environmental exposures linked to Parkinson's disease (PD). According to the Parkinson’s Foundation, most experts agree that PD is caused by a combination of genetic and environmental factors (such as chemicals, toxins, or head trauma). Researchers believe that a combination of factors may trigger biological changes that ultimately lead to Parkinson's.
    Jack is a former U.S. Congressman for the 27th Congressional District of New York and past President of Erie Community College in Buffalo, NY and has over 40 years of experience in higher education. He helps clients navigate the intricate and often complex issues that community leaders face.
    Diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease in 2014, and has been an active public policy advocate and has shared his voice on the need for better treatments and a cure with elected officials. Jack Quinn joined the Board of Directors of The Michael J. Fox Foundation in 2021. He is currently the senior advisor for public and community relations for Barclay Damon LLP, which has offices in the Northeastern United States and Toronto, Canada.

    Cut the Toxins, Save the Species with Kelly Ryerson, the Glyphosate Girl

    Cut the Toxins, Save the Species with Kelly Ryerson, the Glyphosate Girl

    Do you know that you are probably eating, drinking, and touching glyphosate all day, every day. Glyphosate is everywhere. It is in nearly all of our non-organic food. In most US cities, parks, schools, golf courses, and many athletic fields are showered in glyphosate. Glyphosate is found in and fed to babies in breast milk. What is the mega-consumption of glyphosate and associated formulations like Roundup doing to our bodies and those of our children?
    Kelly Ryerson is an environmental health writer, speaker, and ardent public health advocate. After alleviating her own chronic illness by eating a gluten-free and organic diet, she realized that toxins and chemicals were at the core of the explosion in chronic disease in the United States and joins us to discuss her journey and what we can do about glyphosate.
    Currently writing on her blog Glyphosate Girl, Kelly previously worked in investment banking, private equity, and NASA technology commercialization. Kelly has a BA from Dartmouth College, an MBA from the Stanford Graduate School of Business, and completed training in integrative health coaching at Duke Integrative Medicine.

    The Environmental Causes of Parkinson’s Disease With Ray Dorsey, MD

    The Environmental Causes of Parkinson’s Disease With Ray Dorsey, MD

    Did you know that brain diseases are now the world’s leading source of disability? One of the most debilitating, Parkinson’s disease, is the fastest-growing neurological disorder in the world. Over the past 25 years, the number of people with the condition has jumped from 3 million to over 6 million. By 2040, it will likely double again. 
    In addition to impacting millions of lives and livelihoods, Parkinson’s is poised to crush our healthcare system and our economy. This, while harmful pesticides and other toxic chemicals that contribute to Parkinson’s surround us, disproportionately affecting our farmers, our veterans, and even those in Silicon Valley and so many others. So today we are talking with a co-author of the book ‘Ending Parkinson’s Disease with Ray Dorsey, MD. 
    Ray Dorsey, MD, is the David M. Levy Professor of Neurology at the University of Rochester. For the past decade, he has used telemedicine to improve care for individuals with Parkinson’s disease. His research has been published in the leading neurology, medical, and economic journals and has been featured on NPR and in the Wall Street Journal, and New York Times. Previously, he directed the Parkinson’s disease division at Johns Hopkins Medicine and consulted for McKinsey & Company.
    The most effective treatment is now a half-century old, yet research funding stagnates. In short, we’re failing to stop a runaway train. In his book Ending Parkinson’s Disease, four leading doctors and advocates propose a bold PACT to Prevent the disease, Advocate for protective policies, Care for patients, and Treat the condition with innovative therapies. The book gathers the expertise of clinicians, patients, and cutting-edge researchers to tell the full story of Parkinson’s and what we need to do to end it.
