Today we're gonna talk about the science behind how sugar is not food, but poison. Thank you, Robert Lustig. (00:14): So the big question is, how do women over 40 like us keep weight off, have great energy, balance our hormones and our moods, feel sexy and confident, and master midlife? If you're like most of us, you are not getting the answers you need and remain confused and pretty hopeless to ever feel like yourself Again. As an ob gyn, I had to discover for myself the truth about what creates a rock solid metabolism, lasting weight loss, and supercharged energy after 40, in order to lose a hundred pounds and fix my fatigue, now I'm on a mission. This podcast is designed to share the natural tools you need for impactful results and to give you clarity on the answers to your midlife metabolism challenges. Join me for tangible, natural strategies to crush the hormone imbalances you are facing and help you get unstuck from the sidelines of life. My name is Dr. Kyrin Dunston. Welcome to the Hormone Prescription Podcast. (01:08): Hi everybody. Welcome back to another episode of the Hormone Prescription with Dr. Kyrin.. Thank you so much for joining me today. My guest today is Dr. Richard Johnson, and he loves fat. I know you don't, but he does, and it's a good thing because he is been studying it for years and he's got some epic information to share with you about why nature wants us to be fat, the surprising science behind why we gain weight and how to prevent and reverse it. And he's done the research. He loves research. He went into medicine because he wanted to figure out what was causing diseases and treat the reason why we had diseases, not just medicate them with drugs and surgery. So he's a doctor after my own heart. He is an internal medicine doctor. He is also trained in nephrology and infectious disease, and he's an avid researcher. (02:02): So he has a book. Nature Wants Us to Be Fat. We're gonna talk about it today. We're gonna dive into some of the details about sugar and really how bad it is, and you can't hear about this enough. And the ways in which, which types of sugar contribute to overweight and obesity, how you can mitigate these types of sugar in your diet, how your water and hydration status, your salt status, your uric acid status, all affect these, how menopause is associated with insulin resistance. And these link into these other factors. So before I get too technical, I'm gonna bring in Dr. Richard Johnson, who is the researcher. And he, I love the way he describes these things. He tells it almost like a story with a plot and a murder mystery. And I love a good murder mystery. So you're gonna love hearing him talk because he really has a passion for the science behind what makes us overweight and why nature is conspiring to make us overweight. (03:02): And he's really going to spell it out for you and give you some practical, actionable tips. I know you want those. He's got 'em. And I've already told you a little bit about him. Let me just check out his bio and see if there's anything else important that you need to know. He is a professor of medicine at University of Colorado. He does practice medicine, but he really loves research and he is done it for more than 25 years. He is an international expert on sugar and uric acid and its role in obesity, their role in obesity and diabetes. He is book is Nature, wants us to Be Fat. It tells the story of why we are becoming obese and what to do about it becoming, I mean, we're kind of in the the era of epidemic obesity. So we're in it, folks, and if you wanna get out, then you wanna listen to Doctor Rick as he likes to be called. (03:55): Thank you Kyrin. It's wonderful. We'll be on your show. (03:58): I'm so excited to have you here talking about one of my favorite topics, fat, right? What woman doesn't love talking about fat and how to get rid of it. And we're gonna dive into why nature is conspiring against us to make us fat. And the surprising science, why we gain weight and how to prevent and reverse it. But first, I always like to get some type of background for everybody listening. Why are you so passionate about this? How did that happen? You come from an internal medicine background, also nephrology, infectious disease. So how did you become fascinated with that? (04:34): Well, it began when I was becoming a doctor, I just really have been interested in the causes of disease even more so than the treatment of disease. And my, I come from a family where there've been a lot of scientists. And so I, you know, from the very beginning, I always was wondering, why do they have diabetes? Why do they have this condition or that, as opposed to just giving them insulin and having them come back to see you in clinic, you know? And so very early on I started my research career and I was very, I initially, I studied high blood pressure and high blood pressure, as you know, is linked with obesity. And it's linked with insulin resistance. And one thing led to another. And over the last 20 some years, over 30 years, actually, I've been doing research and probably about half of my time is doing research from the basic laboratory to animals in the wild to studies of people. And I've been a very active researcher, but I also have a clinical practice. I see people treat people. And so I have kind of a, I try to do both, both ends of the spectrum. Yeah. (05:44): You know, it reminds me of that Hippocrates quote. Oh gosh. Somebody shared it in one of the podcast episodes recently about the goal of good medicine is to make you not need it. And so you came into this field thinking that you were more interested in why people got disease. Wh if we can figure out why they get it and fix the why, then they won't get it Right (06:09): Ex. Exactly. It's much more effective, it's a much more effective way of helping people. And you know absolutely. That's been the main driver I've been studying, particularly got interested in this thing called the metabolic syndrome, where people develop obesity and pre-diabetes and high blood pressure. And it seems to be the precursor for just about, you know, many of the diseases that are affecting us today. So, you know, when I would go on, when I go on the ward, you know, the residents would come up to me and say, you know, well we have a patient with diabetes and hypertension and heart disease and gout and fatty liver. And, and it's just kind of like a litany of these common diseases. And I believe they're all linked. And so my research took me into diet and into nutrition and into what was it in the diet that triggers these changes that we're seeing? (07:08): And I was particularly puzzled by the fact that in 1900, only one in 30 people were obese. Only one in 50,000 had diabetes. It was like diabetes was almost unheard of. High blood pressure was seen in less than 5% of the population. Heart disease really hadn't even been described. The coronary artery disease wasn't described till 1910. And so, you know, there were only 500 cardiologists in the entire United States in 1940. I mean, it was just not a very common problem. But today, you know, it's just gone crazy. So the question is, you know, why, why did this increase? And obviously the biggest thought has been its relates to diet. And, and then that, that led me to, to my research. (07:59): Right? And those are some very sobering statistics. Nowadays, hypertension, diabetes, coronary artery disease are so commonplace that we consider it normal. It's part of our normal vocabulary. But you're right, what a hundred, just over a hundred years ago, these were kind of anomalies, but now we consider them common. And I'll go ahead and plug in my hormones because it's the same when it comes to menopause. You know, over a hundred years ago, women didn't live any significant amount of time in menopause. So it really wasn't an issue. Now that our lifespan has increased due to medical advances and improved healthcare, we will live some, sometimes a third to a half of our life in menopause in a state of what I call hormonal poverty. And it seems like all the symptoms of what I call midlife metabolic mayhem and disease and premature death from menopause are quote unquote normal. (08:58): And because most women suffer from them. But I think that we have to kind of take a page out of the book of these other metabolic diseases that you described, where they're now commonplace. And so we have physicians that are dedicated to treating these disorders and medications and whole fields of study. And really it should be the same with menopause. But if you compare , the amount of funding and doctors who do research on menopause and treatment, it's really not equivalent to that of diabetes, hypertension, and coronary artery disease. So I just wanted to get that in. Cause I think it's, (09:36): You're right, absolutely right after menopause happens, there's such a dramatic increase in the risk of high blood pressure and obesity and diabetes and all of these metabolic complications go way up in women after menopause. And it is related for sure to these hormonal changes. And actually it's very much linked to our research. And I agree with you. I like that phrase, hormonal poverty. That really does describe the situation. Well. Yes. (10:09): So let's dive into your research on sugar, uric acid, all kinds of wonderful things. Where would you like to start? (10:19): Well, I can begin by kind of how we approached this problem. So the question we, we were asking ourselves is, I'm not afraid to ask big questions, . Yeah. So the, the question that we asked ourselves is, you know, what's driving obesity? And so many people study it and usually they study it from this standpoint of obesity is a disease, it's associated with metabolic syndrome and diabetes. And they kind of come at it like it's a, you know, it is a very bad thing to have. But we decided to kind of take a twist on it and kind of look at it from the standpoint of nature. And in nature, obesity can be lifesaving. And you probably know this well, you know, if you're a big brown bear yeah, and you wanna make it through the winter, you better have enough fat. And so what happens is they, in the spring, they're, they're kind of lean and during the summer they, they actually stay lean and mean as they say. (11:22): But then about eight weeks before they hibernate, they purposefully get fat. And so I realized that it was kind of like a switch. They're eating normally every day and if they eat too much one day, they eat less the other. And actually there's data in animals that regulate their weight. Normally if you fast it an animal for a month and make it lose 20% of its weight, which is sort of mean, but if you do that and you stop that, they'll go right back to the weight they're supposed to be at. If you feed an animal force, feed it so that it has to gain weight and then you stop that, they'll go back to their normal weight. So normally animals regulate their weight, but, you know, all I had to do is look acro, you know, walk to the supermarket and you would recognize that people are not regulating their weight today. (12:13): But interestingly, if you look at a bear, it regulates its weight perfectly. And then eight weeks before it hibernates, it suddenly starts eating voraciously. It looks for food, it starts foraging dramatically, it increases its weight, eight to 10 pounds a day. It becomes insulin resistant. It gets fat in its blood, it gets fat in its silver, it develops the metabolic syndrome. But it is purposeful because it wants to get that fat so that when it goes into its den and it sleeps through the winter, it lives off the fat and the guts not from just the energy from the fat, you know, it breaks down the fat to produce energy. So you don't have to eat when you ha fat enough. You don't have to eat when you're breaking down the fat cuz you can get your energy from the fat, but they even get their water from the fat. (13:09): So when a bear hibernates it doesn't drink water for four months, doesn't eat food for four months and it lives off its fat. Mm-Hmm. . So when we think about animals like this or animals that do long distance migration or nesting, we see that nature wants them to be fat, at least for that period of time. And the question is what triggers them to go from kind of a normal weight to one where they're really gaining weight fast. And then we thought to ourselves, if we can figure this out, then maybe if we can see if people have accidentally turned on this switch all the time. That was sort of the question. And I had also, I have to admit, I'd been studying this for quite a while. At the time we started studying, we did study hibernating bears and we studied hibernating squirrels. And so we did do studies, but I already had an idea, I have to admit. (14:07): And the idea I had related to sugar and particularly to fructose, and I was thinking about, I don't know if you know it, but the little hummingbird Yeah. Has a metta metabolic rate. That's unbelievable. I mean they, they're bidding their wings so fast and their heartbeat so high. I mean, it's like they are metabolically fantastic. They can do anything. They can actually, they can fly long distances even. I mean they, they are just an amazing species. They are. Yeah. And beautiful. But, but they, and beautiful and they eat sugar, they're eating sugar and they, they nectar, you know, with, they put their little bills and those flowers and they pull out, they suck out the the nectar. Nectar is like sugar water. And you know what happens during the day, that's all they eat and they become internally fat like you can't believe it. (15:03): Their liver turns white. Mm-Hmm. , it becomes white with fat. They call it the pearly white liver of the hummingbird. It's supposed to be like the fattest of all livers of birds. And their glucose levels go up to like 700 in their blood. So they actually become diabetic. They're diabetic fat, visceral fat, liver fat all in one day. And then at the end of the day they quit eating, they actually will start resting and when they rest they burn. They continue with that high metabolic rate and they burn off the fat and they drop their blood glucose levels by hundreds of, you know, milligrams mm-hmm. . And basically they go back to normal by the morning and then they start over. And so I was well aware that fructose can really make an animal fat one day if you eat enough, you know, if you're a hummingbird, even with your metabolic rate, it can overcome you and mm-hmm. (16:06): , it just told me that there's something about sugar that's particularly strong. And, actually that's one of my quotes, sugar turns to fat because when you feed animals sugar, they increase their fat content and they decrease their muscle mass actually a little bit. And so it's really powerful, it's a powerful food for increase in fat. And when we started looking at this, we realized it was the fructose that was really the key, you know, sugar or table sugar is sucrose, but it's actually two sugars. It's fructose and glucose bound together and high fructose corn syrups, another added sugar that's in foods and by the name you can tell it's got fructose in it. It's got fructose, high amounts (16:55): . (16:56): Yeah. High amounts, high fructose corn syrup. But let's remember that it's high and it is higher than fat sugar. So yeah, bear (17:05): A fruit hummingbird. It started there with sugar. Sugar turns to fat. A lot of people still think that it's fat that makes you fat. It's not, it's sugar. Right. And can you talk a little bit about high fructose corn syrup because it used to hear a lot more about it and then I don't think it's so much in the media, but it's still being served daily (17:26): . It's unbelievable. So, here was the problem, I don't know, you know, I'm old enough that I remember when ice cream was made with regular sugar and if the ice cream got in the freezer a long time, it would form crystals and it wasn't as good. And so then they found that they could make a syrup of sugar. High fructose corn syrup is basically a syrup and you know, it has a little bit more fructose cuz fructose is the sweeter of the two sugars. So there's fructose and glucose and it has a little more of the fructose, which is sweeter and people like that. And because it's liquid, they can mix it into food really well, it doesn't crystallize. It's got a good shelf life. And so when it was introduced, they found that they could put it in all kinds of food. And when they put it in the food, they can blend it. They, so they can make it strong. So it's really sweet or they can make it just subtle. And actually if it's just subtle, it just makes, makes it taste better. You know, like crackers, if you add just a tiny bit of sugar, you know, I don't know if when you eat a wheat then it, it's got a little sweetness that's so subtle that you can't tell (18:40): It hits that, that bliss point, you know, that everybody has biologic. Right. (18:46): And we did it (18:46): For the fat, salt and sugar. So Yes, go ahead. I'm sorry to interrupt. (18:50): Yeah, no, no, no. I'm sorry to my enthusiasm getting ahead of me here. So sorry. But, but anyway, so it turns out that, you know, when they added the high fructose corn syrup, they found that they could just really, that people would buy the food more. And so a lot of processed foods where you, where, you know, they add things into it, they'll add this high fructose corn syrup or sugar and salts, another one. And so these processed foods have about 70, 70%, 75% of them contain either sugar or high fructose corn syrup and a lot of salt too. And so this, this turns out to be a great way to trigger this switch because, in animals in the wild, a lot of them will eat fructose as their means to trigger the switch. And bears is they eat fruit. And although I like fruit and you like fruit and normally small amounts of fruit, like what humans eat is healthy cuz it contains so many good things. (19:49): A bear won't eat, you know, two apples or one apple at a time. It'll eat as many as it can stuff in its mouth. And so they can get a hundred fruits and then when you eat that much, the sugar adds up. So that's how they do it. They eat a lot of fructose and they can trigger this, this thing. And we did studies in animals then, and we could show that fructose triggers this switch. And when you feed an animal fructose, not only do they get hungry, they get hungry, they get thirsty, they want to eat more food, and they do, they don't control their appetite anymore. So they eat more than they should. They drop their energy metabolism when they're resting, they start becoming insulin resistant and they raise their blood pressure and they put Liv fat in their liver. Anyway, they do all these things, they even get behavioral changes where they start foraging. (20:56): It's an incredible program. So it's like a whole orchestra is initiated, it isn't just about eating more. And this is all triggered by fructose and it turns out to be unique. It's unique to fructose. And we actually figured out how it worked. And it's really cool because when you eat food, you're getting energy, right? We get our energy from the food we eat. And so when we eat food, we make energy in our bodies that we use to do what we do. That's why we eat. But there's two types of energy, there's really two major types of energy. There's the act of energy that we use everyday and we call that a t p, that's the energy we make. We make it in our mitochondria and other places in our body. And then the other energy is the stored energy and the stored energy is fat because it can be turned into energy when you break it down. (21:58): That's how the bear gets through the winter. So, so it turns out that when you eat, most people were thinking that when you eat, you get this energy and if we fill up our atp and once the gas tank is full, then the extra goes into fat. And it turns out that's not the way it works. Once the ATTP is full, you count your weight is regulated, you, you're not going to eat anymore. It's like a system that controls your weight. Mm-Hmm. . But what fructose does is it, it lowers the a t p, it's the only nutrient that lowers the a t P in the cell. And when that happens, it makes you hungry because you wanna have a full, you wanna have a full tank. And so what you do is you eat more, but be the way fructose works is it doesn't allow you to really build up that attp. It makes the energy that comes in go over to the fat. So energy the same. You're you're eating energy and you're, you're storing energy. But instead of, or using it, but instead of using it for, at tp, it's going preferentially to the fat mm-hmm. . And, and because the a t P levels are low, you keep eating. And so it's a fantastic system for making an animal want to gain weight. You (23:18): Know, as you're saying that I've experienced this, maybe people listening have, so I don't consume a lot of fruit because the more fruit I eat, the more fruit I want, the more food I want. I've always noticed that. And you know, all these diet wars going on and people say, well why do you hate fruit? And Dr. Kiran, I say, I don't hate fruit. It just is not necessarily the best option when there are other options. So you're saying that the switch that triggers it for the hummingbird and for the hibernating bears is sugar and that's what's switching us Yes. The survival switch that's causing us to gain weight as well. (24:00): Yes. So originally, okay, originally our work said it was from, just from the sugars that we were eating. And you know, like a hummingbird gets it from nectar, the bear gets it by eating a lot of fruit. To address your question, you know, we've done a fair number of studies and if, and for most people, if they eat a few fruits, it's actually good because you got fiber and potassium and all this. But if you eat a lot of fruit or if you eat certain fruits that are sweeter than others, you can activate the switch from fruit. I have had people who couldn't lose weight and they were eating, drinking smoothies of fruits and I had them stop that and they were able to lose weight very quickly. So it is true, but in general, fruits in our work, we actually did a clinical trial where we gave people on a low fructose diet with or without some fruit supplements. (24:56): And for most people, natural fruit supplements are good. Now, if you're eating bananas, if you're eating, you know, apples, bananas, plums, pears, those in particular can either raise your glucose a lot or or raise, provide a big fructose load mm-hmm. . So anyway, so I I I think we're in agreement actually. Totally. But anyway, so then how about we did have, we had a big bad discovery though. It's really important for me to bring this up for your Okay. People listened and that was that, you know, so in the beginning I said, that's all high fructose corn syrup, it's all added sugars. It's these, these are the foods that have the fructose, this is the food that activates the switch. It's gotta be that. And so I was targeting them and, and high fr you know, and then I found out too that you're like, if you knocked out the taste of an animal so that it can't taste sweet, it's still like sugar. (25:51): And so I realized that even when people were putting sugar in the foods, even if you can't taste it, it's like a mechanism to make you like it because the animals that can't taste sweet still seek sweet foods. So I thought it was all that. And then of course I started thinking and I realized that not all animals that hibernate are eating fruit. And also, you know, the penguin can really get fat very easily and there's not much fruit done in Antarctica. So, you know, I realized that there had to be other foods that could trigger the switch. And the big discovery was when we figured out that the body can make fructose from carbs. You know, so french fries for example, probably not our favorite food, right? , right. But yeah. But anyway, french fries do not contain fructose. They contain starch, they don't contain sugar, really, they contain starch. (26:48): Now when the starch is broken down, it makes glucose and glucose, I is a sugar, but it's not fructose. Right. So, but when the glucose goes up in the blood, it stimulates insulin, which helps drive fat of course. But it also is producing fructose. And so glucose can be converted to fructose. And especially when you eat a high glycemic carbs like rice, potatoes, all those foods that we love, bread, hot bread, you know, there's very few people who, you know, didn't, don't enjoy, you know, hot bread or you know, french fries or things like that. But we know that they're not good for us. And, and what we, why we know that it's not good for us is because when you give animals a lot of carbs, they also can gain weight. And we did studies where we gave glucose and the animals actually became fat just like giving fructose did. But when we studied and we figured out that what was happening was they were converting the glucose to fructose in their body mm-hmm. . And then we went and proved it, you know, by using, you know, special animals that can only metabolize fructose and stuff like that, or can't. And so what we did, so basically it turns out that we realized that it wasn't just sugar and high fructose corn syrup. They are the, they're definitely bad guys. Right. They're bad guys. (28:21): , I love how you're telling this like, it's like a murder mystery. I can't wait to hear. Okay, so go ahead. (28:26): Yeah, they, they're so then what they, they're definitely villains at the scene, right? But there are other villains too. And those villains include bread, rice, potatoes, and all these foods that I love. So it's really disappointing. But I do wanna say that it isn't that you should never eat sugar or cake or ice cream. And I think probably many of the people listening to me, maybe you're having some ice cream in front of you right now. But, the truth is, I'm telling you that it is not that you can eat this stuff or shouldn't, but that it's clearly that we're eating too much of it. Yeah. And there's something, and I, and I would say like, don't ever drink a soft drink. I mean that it's just pure sugar. It's gonna activate this switch, you know, so try really to, if you wanna get healthy, try to cut back on these things, (29:20): Right? I would say I'm in Argentina right now and there's lots of bread and there's lots of potatoes and there's really no obesity here. You rarely see an obese person on the street or even overweight. And so I've been kind of looking around and figuring out why that is. And I guess it's cuz they don't eat it all day every day with every meal. And they're also extremely active so they burn it off. And, and the same was true when I was in . You know, rice is a staple in many countries. Bread is a staple in many countries, but they don't consume the sheer volume of these sp fructose containing items that we do. Right. So go off and, and, and (30:06): There is a, there is a secret there, there's a secret weapon too for you to consider when you're wandering around there. And I, there's two secret weapons. So let me tell you, and you probably already know about the one, but the one is salt. You know, for years people were saying, ah, you know, salt's, you know, have been linked with hypertension, but if anything, a lot of us should eat a lot of salt. But it turns out that when you eat a lot of salt, salt can be really good for sure. But if you eat a lot of salt so that the salt concentration goes up into your blood, goes up in your blood and the way you'll know that is you'll feel thirsty if you start feeling thirsty from eating salt, it turns out that your salt concentration in the blood is high. And when that happens, it is like it stimulates the chemical reaction that converts glucose to fructose. So glucose, you have to have glucose around to make fructose, but if you have the chemical reaction turned on, you can make a lot more. And so it turns out that if I eat a baked potato that has no salt on it and it's just a, you know, plain potato, I'm not gonna make as much fructose as if I salt it. So salted french fries are much worse than regular potatoes just because of that. But (31:37): Now Rick, are we talking about sodium chloride or potassium chloride? Cause (31:44): Sodium chloride, (31:46): You're talking about sodium. So that's, we're not talking about sea salt. Because sea salt should not, not have that. Okay. Just wanna make sea salt clarify for everyone. (31:54): Right. Sea salt does not do it. Potassium chloride does not do it. Mm-Hmm. , it's specifically sodium chloride. And actually animals love salt licks and they do it, they actually want the sodium chloride if they've been studied where they take deer and they make these licks with different kinds of salts. Mm-Hmm. , it's only the sodium, sodium chloride that they'll like. (32:17): Okay. (32:18): And it's because we think that that raises the serum sodium, which is a trigger to make fructose. So if you're eating a lot of salt, you can make more fructose. Now there's another twist, and this twist is sort of interesting because it's a little, it will sound challenging initially, but it turns out that fats and seed oils and fats can play a role in obesity as well. And you know, there are the, the, the low carb people will say, well, I'm on a low carb diet and I'm on a, which is a high fat diet and I'm losing weight on it. And I'll explain how that works because the reason that is, is because you need the carbs to trigger the switch. So if you trigger the switch and lower the a t p, then you're going to eat more. Okay. So the carbs, the fructose is really there to make you hungry and to disrupt your ability to control your weight. (33:22): So if you don't have a lot of fructose in your system, the fructose makes you hungry and can't control your appetite. But to actually gain weight, it is calories at that point. And the thing about fat is it's like nine calories per gram. So if you go to countries where there's not a lot of fat, a lot of fat in the diet, they'll, people will, can trigger the switch. They can become diabetic, they can become hypertensive, all those things of the switch. But to get really massively overweight, it's a little bit harder to do if there's not a lot of fat around because the fat just has so many calories per gram. So the, in our country where we have all this processed food and fried this and fried that, the, it's not that the fried food will make you fat by itself, but if you have that fructose, that sugar that or, or you're making fructose that triggers you to the switch, then the high fat food will, will, will be like putting wood on the fire. (34:28): So think of fructose as the actual fire and food is the firewood, but of the firewood, the one that burns the biggest and the strongest are the ones that have a lot of fat in it. So seed oils have become really popular and fat has in general, but we're, because we're eating so much fat in our processed food as well, you know, it's the triple whammy because you've got sugar and you and i or high fructose corn syrup, you've got salt and you got fat. So the, the, the sugar tri triggers the switch, the salt helps really convert things into fructose. And then you got the fat that that really is giving you the calories to gain weight. So this is why on a low carb diet, you can eat all the, a very high fat diet and you're not gonna gain fat gain weight because you're regulating your weight. So well, you, fill up people in a low carb diet don't have to actually go on a diet re caloric restriction cuz they naturally won't eat as much because they fill up or easier mm-hmm. . And that's because they're, they haven't activated the switch. They're, so they, you know, they can eat that high fat food, but they're not going to mm-hmm. to really gain a lot of weight from. (35:47):So there's so many things I wanna ask you. And we're, we are getting some time, so I'm gonna kind of try and let's see if we can get really targeted here. So you just mentioned something that made me think of intermittent fasting, which is all the rage right now with the research on how it helps diseases like certain autoimmune diseases, weight loss, the list is long cognitive decline, et cetera, et cetera. Can you comment on the utility of intermittent fasting from the research that you've done and your perspective? (36:20): I love intermittent fasting. I think it's a fantastic way to lose weight. Mm-Hmm. , it's easy. I think it's a fantastic system. I also think low carb diets in general are very good. And if you do intermittent fasting, so long as you're not getting hypoglycemic from it, I would try to cut back as well on those bad foods that we talked about. And I would focus on drinking, staying really well hydrated. And actually that's one of my, my second quote for you is, is, you know, keep hydrated or stay hydrated because it turns out it really makes a difference. And if you keep your serum electrolytes or sodium normal, it helps keep the fructose from being produced and it's really good. And we actually did studies where we gave animals water and we could slow the development of obesity even with sugar. So I try to stay hydrated. (37:17): What I recommend is drinking a glass of water before each meal. It's so easy. Mm-Hmm. , just make it, make it a requirement and, you know, drink a glass of water as soon as you wake up in the morning. And if you're gonna have a snack, drink a glass of water before the snack, you know mm-hmm. , it will make a huge difference. I have people emailing me saying, this is unbelievable how powerful this is. You know, I've lost that weight that I couldn't lose. And so when you see it's so true. Yeah. So when you see somebody running around, you know, these young athletic types that are lean and mean and you know, they have their huge water bottle next to them. That is an association that is real and they need the water to stay hydrated, but the water is keeping them healthy. So That's right. It's just really important. (38:11): I gotta ask you Dr. Rick, about uric acid. Is there anything you wanna add about that when it comes to gaining weight? (38:18): Yes. Especially related to you, your point about hormones and postmenopausal effects. So estrogen has many, many beneficial effects, and we've studied estrogen in our research and, you know, it keeps blood vessels healthy in many respects. But one of the most powerful benefits of estrogens is that they lower uric acid. So young women have uric acid levels that tend to be lower than men. And uric acid turns out to be important in how fructose works. And so when, when you make or eat fructose it, it's broken down. Remember I talked about how it lowers the energy in the cell, it uses uric acid to lower the energy in the cell. And when it does that, that's how it triggers the switch. So uric acid is considered biologically active. It isn't just a waste product that we get rid of and we get uric acid. (39:23): When we eat fructose, we make uric acid when we drink alcohol, especially beer. And so uric acid is a bad guy. So it's another villain at the dinner table when you look around at what you want to eat, what you don't want to eat. You know, sugar can make uric acid alcohol canned. You don't want to drink a lot of alcohol, especially beer and certain shellfish in which we love like shrimp, they can make uric acid, but the uric acid can play a role in driving these diseases. And people with high uric acid are at risk for diabetes and obesity. And when you are postmenopausal and you lose your estrogen uric acid levels go up and it's associated with women getting increased risk for obesity and diabetes and all this. And, and it's even worse for women because at the same level of uric acid, women seem to be more sensitive to it. So when the uric acid goes up postmenopausally, it becomes the same levels as it does for men, but it's worse because it's doing more for, for at the same level in women than it does in men. So a very strong argument for hormones for hormones and hormonal therapy, and I believe it's a major player in why following menopause people are at risk for, you know, everything going to hell, going to, you know, into pieces. Right. (40:55): And so just as a fellow physician, is that at all controversial anymore? Because, you know, even acog, American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, the only indications they have for estrogen therapy are vasomotor symptoms like hot flashes, urogenital atrophy, osteoporosis, that's it. But all these diseases are increased in women who are hormonally deficient or in the hormonal poverty of menopause. And yet just what you said, how estrogen improves blood vessels and it affects weight and 75% of us at 60 are overweight or obese. Yeah. So I'm just wondering from your perspective, is that all a controversial statement? (41:37): Well, it is. It is. But you know, no one has really like the Women's health Initiative in some of these trials. What they really need to do is they need to consider uric acid as a potential mechanism to explain the effects post-menopause. Mm-Hmm. and to, when they do these studies, like with estrogens, they should include, you know, measuring what happens to the uric acid to see if this really re can predict the better a, you know, can predict the results. So in other words, if the uric acid levels don't go down, it suggests to me it would suggest that that person is less likely to show a benefit. I've been studying uric acid for 30 years, and I can tell you that biologically it's really powerful. And, we even did some studies in humans that we published in the JAMA showing that uric acid can raise blood pressure in people especially in younger people, there's links with insulin resistance and a variety of things. (42:37): It is controversial, we need to do more clinical studies, but experimentally and in the animal and in the cell culture, it is very clear that uric acid is biologically active and is doing things that we tend not to want to have done to us. So right. I would say yes, we need to do more studies, but like I've published studies showing that lowering uric acid improves insulin resistance. I've shown it improves blood pressure. There's studies showing that it improves vascular function. There's hundreds of studies that show that if you have a high uric acid associated with poorer outcomes, including cancers and all these things. So I believe that there's enough evidence there that everyone should measure their uric acid and know what it is. Now whether or not you should go on a medication to lower the uric acid, I think that, you know, that may be a little more controversial because medications can carry side effects. (43:38): But there are some things you can do to lower the uric acid. We just talked about 'em, you know, reduce your sugar and drink more water. Another one is vitamin C. Vitamin C is a vitamin. It's healthy. And if you take 500 milligrams twice a day, it's been shown in placebo controlled trials to lower uric acid. So it's a good move. It helps the energy factories. You certainly, there's enough evidence that high uric acid levels are associated with bad outcomes and there's good evidence that low uric acids are associated with good outcomes. And there's pilot studies that show that lowering uric acid improves things. So in my mind, estrogen's, lower uric acid, vitamin C lowers uric acid hydration, lowers uric acid, exercising daily can lower uric acid, reducing sugar. These are all good things. They're all associated with good outcomes. We should use diet, exercise vitamins, maybe hormones as you recommend. And I think that a lot can be gained and you don't necessarily have to go on Allopurinol or a drug like that, but if your uric acid is really high and you have gout, I would recommend it. (44:54): Well, you are a font of information about fat and sugar and uric acid and all these things. That is for sure. I'm gonna direct everyone to your book and we're gonna have Dr. Richard share all his links and we'll have 'em in the show notes too. But he has chapters on the optimal diet for blocking the fat switch. In his book. He has one for restoring your original weight and improving your health span. So he's got all the how-tos in his book. But Dr. Richard, please tell everyone where they can find your book and where they can connect with you online and find out more about the work that you're doing. (45:33): Thank you, Kyrin. So my book called Nature Wants us to be Fat . Mm-Hmm. , and you know exactly right, there's a section on, you know, the science and why and, but there's also, at least half of the book is devoted to how to block the switch and how to turn it off. And there's food that turns it off. And so I do think that you'll find it useful and how to restore your energy. So that book can be, you can get it through almost all sites. Amazon Books A million Barnes and Noble. You can find it. And my, I have a nice website. Well at least I think it's nice . Anyway, I didn't make it so it's great. (46:16): It's (46:16): Really good. Yeah. But it's called Dr. Richard johnson.com and that's a really good place to find me. I have a thing called Link Bio, which you can use Dr. Richard Johnson and it connects to all kinds of podcasts as well. But my website's the, my main site mm-hmm. and I'm findable on Instagram and Twitter. And so I think you should be able to find me. (46:41): Okay. I love this quote you have on your website from Robert Lusting, the Science Behind How Sugar is Not Food but Poison. And it reminds me of, there's a TED Talk that is entitled I believe It's Sugar is Not a Treat. And I really think this, this gets to the truth that we really need to stop idolizing Sugar . (47:07): Yes, absolutely. Yeah. Rob Lustig's, one of my heroes. And anyway, thank you so much for having me on your show, and thank you for those who've been listening. Yes. (47:17): Thank you for joining us, Dr. Johnson. Super happy to have you here. Important topic, great research you're doing, direct everybody to the book. You can find it wherever books are sold.

Your horse is cold backed and unpredictable at the mounting block. Under saddle, he goes around inverted, and can sometimes even kick out or spook suddenly. One of your friends casually says, “Maybe he has Kissing Spines,” and your heart skips - you've heard of it before, and know that it's definitely not good. Kissing Spines disease in horses has been increasingly diagnosed in recent years, and can even be a reason why some people pass on a horse during a pre purchase exam - but we know more about diagnosing, treating, and managing this condition than we ever have. In this conversation, Dr. Kara Brown helps us break down the in/outs of this disease, as well as what you should be worried about (and what you shouldn't) if your horse is diagnosed with it. Along with listener questions, Caroline and Dr. Brown discuss: The anatomy of the back, and how it relates to Kissing Spines What we know (and don't) about what causes this condition The grading system vets use to assess severity How to properly palpate your horse's back The best (and most recent) diagnosis methods Surgical and non-surgical treatment options Longer-term management and strengthening methods The book referenced with regard to rehabilitation and strengthening: Activate Your Horse's Core by Hilary Clayton and Narelle Stubbs A bit about Kara Brown, VMD, DACVSMR: Dr. Brown attended veterinary school at the University of Pennsylvania and completed specialty training (including a fellowship in Large Animal Cardiology and Ultrasound and residency in Equine Sports Medicine and Rehabilitation) at the University of Pennsylvania, New Bolton Center.

In this episode, host Dr. Sabeen Dhand interviews interventional cardiologist Dr. Eric Secemsky about the role of intravascular ultrasound in lower extremity interventions, and how he published a consensus document to standardize its use across specialties and provide a framework for new users. --- CHECK OUT OUR SPONSORS Philips Image Guided Therapy Devices Academy https://resource.philipseliiteacademy.com Philips SymphonySuite https://www.philips.com/symphonysuite --- SHOW NOTES Dr. Secemsky practices at BIDMC in Boston. His passions are pulmonary embolism intervention and intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) for peripheral vascular disease. He began using IVUS for coronary interventions, and then began incorporating it in arterial and venous peripheral interventions. The goal is to make procedures durable in the endovascular world, and IVUS is key for that. In the coronaries, there is a standardized way that all cardiologists use IVUS for. First, they cross the lesion with the wire, then use IVUS to measure lesion length and vessel diameter for stent sizing. They also evaluate plaque composition, which informs whether to use a plaque modifying device before stenting. They then balloon, stent, and use IVUS again to evaluate stent position and check for dissections. Dr. Secemsky measures an arterial lumen by identifying the 3 layers of the vessel wall, and finding the black stripe behind the intima, which corresponds to the elastic membrane. Dr. Secemsky tells us about a consensus article he published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology. He collaborated with some colleagues to form a 12 person steering committee composed of interventional cardiology, interventional radiology, vascular surgery and vascular medicine specialists. The goal was to consolidate information from all these specialties to provide a single standardized document. This document can be used for those wanting to incorporate IVUS into their practice, but don't know where to begin. They established levels of evidence regarding where IVUS is most appropriate. They found that tibial arterial intervention has the highest support for use of IVUS across specialties. Furthermore, they established that the best practice for IVUS is to use it three times per case, for pre-intervention, middle-run and post-run. Using IVUS is safe, and offers so much information to make case a more efficient. In addition, you cut down on device utilization, contrast use and radiation exposure, while improving patient outcomes by getting better luminal gain and improved durability of your intervention. --- RESOURCES JACC Consensus Article: https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/35926922/
Our interview with journalist and community organizer, Kit O'Connell (of the Texas Observer), and anarchist and activist lorén (of QTPIE or Queer and Trans People Illuminate Everything).

The American College of Pediatricians scored a major victory last month when a federal judge ruled in its favor and halted the Food and Drug Administration's approval of mifepristone, a drug used in chemical abortions.Just weeks later, the organization endured a cyberattack carried out by hackers intending to cause major damage. As if that wasn't enough, news of the hack was then leaked to a hostile journalist in a fleeting attempt to damage the organization's reputation.Since the U.S. Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade last year, pro-life institutions and individuals have faced sustained attacks. The militant group Jane's Revenge vandalized pregnancy resource centers, the FBI arrested a pro-life father in Pennsylvania, and a deranged pro-abortion man plotted an assassination attempt on Justice Brett Kavanaugh.These unrelenting attacks show no sign of abating. Look no further than the latest assault on the American College of Pediatricians, also known as ACPeds.Dr. Jill Simons, executive director of the American College of Pediatricians, joins "The Daily Signal Podcast" to explain what happened and why she's not backing down from her mission to defend life and protect the most vulnerable in our society.

Expert Konstantinos Filis, the Director of the Institute of Global Affairs and an Associate Professor at the American College of Greece, joins Thanos Davelis to break down whether a compromise between Athens and Ankara could be on the horizon following elections, and look into what more Washington can do to send the message that the 3+1 partnership is a top priority.Watch the Delphi Economic Forum on demand: Delphi Economic Forum VIIIYou can read the articles we discuss on our podcast here:Western partners to push for solutions in Greek-Turkish relationsTurkey will continue to ‘annoy,' says Erdogan at jet presentationU.S. hands Cyprus ancient artifacts, some 4,000 years oldGreece looks to Vienna for new boost on Parthenon Sculptures

Men and women require estradiol for optimal health. In this podcast, Dr. Carrozzella and I delve into the importance of estradiol in both men and women. The importance of estradiol in women is crucial for reproductive, brain, and bone health, as well as cardio protection. Decline in estradiol during menopause can lead to various diseases of aging. There is controversy around replacing estradiol in women, but the literature supports its necessity. Similarly, men also require estradiol for optimal health, but there are still physicians blocking estradiol. We cover the misconceptions surrounding blocking estrogen and explore the cardio-protective effects of estradiol. Lastly, we address the treatments for sexual health and the role of Trimix, Emsella, PDE-5’s, and botox in sexual function. Tune in for an informative discussion on sexual function and hormone management.
