    Plasmalogens and Longevity - Dr. Dayan Goodenowe Discusses Age-Related Diseases and how Age Affects Health

    Plasmalogens and Longevity - Dr. Dayan Goodenowe Discusses Age-Related Diseases and how Age Affects Health

    How can plasmalogens lead researchers to discoveries in age-related disease? By giving clues of how various bodily functions work, they may be the missing piece of the puzzle.

    Press play to learn:
    How plasmalogens facilitate biogenesis Why low-level plasmalogens are problematic in the body How maximum lifespan can be extended CEO and founder of Prodrome Sciences, discuss his work with plasmalogens and how their function in the body facilitates necessary tasks throughout.
    As we age, our body begins to struggle to carry out processes that did not pose a challenge earlier in life. One of the keys to these functions is the presence of plasmalogens throughout the body to help facilitate proper pathways that are working as they should.
    Age-related diseases may have been found to be caused, at least in part, by the absence or deficiency in plasmalogens. Rather than treating diseases and increasing average lifespan, Prodrome Sciences focuses on the conditions in the body that lead to disease susceptibility.

    Humanizing Healthcare Through the Lens of a Paramedic-Turned-Physician and Digital Care Activation Platforms Discussed with Dr. Summer Knight

    Humanizing Healthcare Through the Lens of a Paramedic-Turned-Physician and Digital Care Activation Platforms Discussed with Dr. Summer Knight

    Can the healthcare experience be made more comfortable and humanized? Research may show that seeking more holistic care may make some treatments and experiences more beneficial.

    Press play to learn:
    How more medical services can be coordinated  How the healthcare consumer can play a role in their own healthcare journey The three main pillars of patient comfort in treatment Author and paramedic-turned-physician, Dr. Summer Knight, shares her work to shift the field of healthcare to a more human-focused experience that puts comfort at the forefront.
    The current focus of the healthcare industry is less on the comfort of the patient and more on the profitability and efficiency of the operations. While this may work from a business perspective, a more empathetic approach may be more beneficial for patients and families involved in ongoing treatment.
    By coordinating services and various silos of the medical field, the patient will have a better understanding of their enduring process. By focusing more heavily on patient happiness alongside health, the healthcare industry can begin to focus on treating the person and not just the ailment.

    Animal Genome Sequencing and CRISPR-Cas9 Gene Editing Steps Discussed In-Depth with Alison Van Eenennaam

    Animal Genome Sequencing and CRISPR-Cas9 Gene Editing Steps Discussed In-Depth with Alison Van Eenennaam

    How can cattle be genetically enhanced to benefit the industry at large? Researchers may eliminate diseases and other ailments, and production may be made more efficient using genome editing methods.

    Listen in to learn:
    How accurate genetic predictions can be during breeding Which portions of genes can be edited How GMO products may cause harm Extension Specialist and part of animal biotechnology and genomics at UC Davis, Alison Van Eenennaam, discusses her research using CRISPR Cas-9 to enhance livestock breeding.
    By editing the genome of cattle in various industries, the preferable breeding results can be guaranteed, making the practice much more profitable and beneficial to the animal. For example, sex selection can ensure all female cows for dairy production, and all males can be guaranteed beef harvesting.
    Agricultural systems can be made much more profitable, healthy, and efficient using animal genomics and implementing disease resistances. However, tradeoffs have been speculated in genetically modified products, but harm appears to remain reasonably low.

    Molecular and Cellular Biology of Viruses and Biochemical Balance - An In-Depth Discussion with Dr. Sandy Bevacqua

    Molecular and Cellular Biology of Viruses and Biochemical Balance - An In-Depth Discussion with Dr. Sandy Bevacqua

    How can the body's equilibrium impact your overall health and immune system's strength? By maintaining blood chemistry balance, your body may be able to fight off disease that to which it may have been previously prone.

    Press play to learn:
    The optimal range of balance for each individual What can cause toxicity within the body How the HPAT system regulates overall health Dr. Sandy Bevacqua shares her insight into balancing blood chemistry and maintaining equilibrium within the body.
    If the body is not in a state of equilibrium, it will continue to function while doing significant harm to various systems throughout. Outside toxicity is also a considerable contributor to throwing the system out of balance and can be a primary cause of sickness and chronic disease.
    Since many of the systems rely on each other to function correctly, a shutdown or malfunction in one can cause widespread poor health in many parts of the body. As toxicity in our environments builds, it becomes increasingly important to be mindful of what we allow into our bodies.

    Exploring the Significant Intelligence of One of the Top Talking Birds, the African Grey Parrot, with Irene Pepperberg, Ph.D.

    Exploring the Significant Intelligence of One of the Top Talking Birds, the African Grey Parrot, with Irene Pepperberg, Ph.D.

    With the help of an African Grey parrot named Alex, Irene Pepperberg, Ph.D. has conducted years of research that helped the world understand the unique and amazing communication abilities of Grey parrots.

    In this podcast, Dr. Pepperberg shares the results of more than four decades of her research into the cognitive and communitive capabilities of Grey parrots.
    Press play to learn
    How Dr. Pepperberg’s research influenced how scientists perceive avian intelligence Why Pepperberg used the model/rival technique to train Alex About Alex’s ability to identify shapes, colors, and sizes, and count objects The pros and cons of having an African grey parrot as a pet Dr. Pepperberg completed her studies in chemistry at Harvard University in the 70s. While finishing her degree, Pepperberg became interested in the use of sign language and computer interfaces and studied the available data on interspecies communication. Her ultimate objective was to establish two-way communication with a Grey parrot that was similar to ongoing efforts with chimpanzees and dolphins.
    An African Grey parrot named Alex joined Pepperberg in her research on animal cognition and communication skills. With training by Pepperberg, Alex developed the ability to express more than 100 vocal labels for objects, colors, and actions. He understood the concepts of materials, same and different, relative size, and absence/none. His decades of work and achievements with Dr. Pepperberg demonstrated that Grey parrots have an intellect much greater than what was originally perceived.
    Dr. Pepperberg believes that Alex had the intelligence of a five-year-old child and the speech abilities of an 18-month to two-year-old child. She continued to train him using a modeling technique to demonstrate to Alex the things she wanted him to learn such as counting, colors, and shapes. One person would model the desired behavior with another individual and they would exchange roles as Alex observed their interactions. They would occasionally answer a question incorrectly to demonstrate to Alex that only the right answer was acceptable. Sadly, Alex passed away unexpectedly in 2007.
    In the scientific world, the work done by Dr. Pepperberg has increased the awareness of bird intelligence. She continues to develop research possibilities in pitch perception and visual optic illusions. With the assistance of Griffin, an African Grey parrot who was hatched in 1995, Pepperberg plans to complete her studies on delayed gratification to add to existing data in the field of language learning of animals

Forward Thinking

I listened to your podcast with Dr. Jon Lieff to prepare for my interview with him and loved your questions for him. They sparked me to dig deeper, keep thinking and keep researching while I thought of what I wanted to ask him. Incredible podcast! Well done.
