  • Turtles All The Way Down
  • No vaccines in the childhood schedule have been compared to a placebo in a clinical trial.
  • They’ve all been compared to bioactive compounds. Normally another vaccine
  • 90% of mortality rates of infectious diseases were gone before the vaccines came out
  • What we know about polio is a myth. It wasn’t only viral. Instead, it was related to:
    • pesticide
    • arsenate
    • DPT
  • Evidence for and against herd immunity from each vaccine.
    • Only 5 could possibly be argued to give it
    • Those vaccines are for measles, mumps, rubella, chicken pox
  • Most are not “anti-vax,” but “ex-vaxx”


This week on A Different Perspective, Doc kicks off Sugar month by breaking down what sugar is, and why this question isn’t so easy to answer.

  • Sugar is a general term, like estrogen
    • Describes many things
    • It is a generic term that describes any of the classes of soluble, crystalline, typically sweet-tasting carbohydrates obtained from plant sources and other living organisms.
  • The simplest form of sugar is monosaccharides
  • Glucose
    • Most important energy source in any organism
    • Most abundant monosaccharide
    • Nerve cells, cells of the renal medulla, and erythrocytes (red blood cells) depend on glucose for their energy production.
    • In combination with other monosaccharides, they make cell receptors, tissues, and membranes. Example: Joints !!!
  • Most adults have a teaspoon to a tablespoon of sugar in their blood. Most sodas will give you 38 to 40 g.
  • Compound Sugars, also called Disaccharides (double sugars) are molecules composed of two monosaccharides joined by a glycosidic bond.
    • Sucrose – Glucose and Fructose
    • Lactose – Galactose and Glucose
    • Maltose – Glucose and Glucose
  • Oligosaccharide is composed of three to ten monosaccharides.
  • Polysaccharides contain more than ten monosaccharide units and can have a large number between 200 and 2500.


This week on A Different Perspective, Doc talks about Gymnema and Chicory Root Inulin, and how they can help you balance your sugar intake.

(Begins at 01:19:37)

  • Gymnema binds to the receptors so they don’t absorb sugar
  • Chicory Root Inulin
    • Supports beneficial bacteria in the gut
    • Improves inflammatory bowel conditions
    • Reduces food cravings
    • Artichokes
