The Empowering Neurologist – Dr. Terry Wahls

Worth a watch!

Video interview by David Perlmutter, MD, with Dr. Terry Wahls, professor, physician, teacher, researcher, author and inspiration.

She is herself a patient with a chronic progressive neurological disorder, secondary progressive multiple sclerosis, which confined her to a tilt-recline wheelchair for four years. But through her nonstop efforts to learn about the underlying biochemical events that characterize this and so many other neurodegenerative conditions, Dr. Wahls restored her health and now pedals her bike five miles to work each day.

Dr. Wahls has written several books, and today we will be discussing her latest work, The Wahls Protocol. This book summarizes her use of intensive nutrition to recover from her secondary progressive multiple sclerosis.  She shows how to eat for health, and the actions we need to take to ensure our mitochondria and brain cells have all the building blocks necessary to truly thrive.

Junk food ads targeting children banned in non-broadcast media

Interesting statistic – Research from Ofcom shows that young people aged five to 15 spend about 15 hours a week online, overtaking time spent watching TV for the first time.

Junk food adverts aimed at children are to be banned online, in print and in the cinema after a detailed consultation on the damage they do by encouraging children to eat fattening and unhealthy food.

Action on Sugar welcomed the new rules. “However, we need to see bans on advertising go further, as they currently do not manage exposure to these adverts during popular family programmes such as the X Factor or Britain’s Got Talent,” said its campaign manager, Jenny Rosborough, a registered nutritionist.

The need to act has become clear as children spend more and more time on computers and phones.
