Men are from Venus?
One of the most talked about speakers at my recent 2015 Palm Beach Anti-Aging Summit was New York Times bestselling author Dr. John Gray, who wrote the groundbreaking book “Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus.” Dr. Gray is an expert in understanding the differences between the sexes and teaching men and women to live in harmony by acknowledging them. During his speech, Dr. Gray revealed that those differences even extend to how environmental factors (including stress) can impact men and women differently. I’ve seen this phenomenon in my own research. The most obvious example is how our modern environment has increased estrogen levels in men, which wreaks havoc on their bodies. When I started testing my male patients’ estrogen levels 20 years ago, people thought I was nuts. Back then most doctors considered the “female hormone” relevant only to women. But my research showed that our modern environment was causing dangerous estrogen imbalances in men. You see, men naturally have small amounts of estrogen in their bodies. But those levels have increased dramatically as more and more endocrine-disrupting chemicals (EDCs) have entered our environment. At the center of the problem are EDCs that mimic estrogen… Industries dump tons of pharmaceutical and synthetic estrogens that eventually seep into our drinking water. And it doesn’t stop there. Ranchers in the meat and poultry industries inject their cattle and chickens with es...

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – Gluten intolerance is a sensitivity to a family of proteins found in grains like wheat, rye and barley. It can cause symptoms that include bloating, abdominal pain, diarrhea and constipation. It now seems that gluten can affect more than just the person who eats it, reports Dr. Max Gomez. Danish scientists, after analyzing data from thousands of pregnant women, say a high gluten diet may put offspring at higher risk for type 1 diabetes. Doctors say children of women with the highest intake of wheat, rye, and barley proteins had double the diabetes risk. ...
Conclusion: To address the many challenges posed by EDCs, we argue that Africans should take the lead in prioritization and evaluation of environmental hazards, including EDCs. We recommend the institution of education and training programs for chemical users, adoption of the precautionary principle, establishment of biomonitoring programs, and funding of community-based epidemiology and wildlife research programs led and funded by African institutes and private companies. https://doi.org/10.1289/EHP1774 Received: 16 February 2017 Revised: 22 May 2017 Accepted: 24 May 2017 Published: 22 August 2017 Address correspond...
When I started practicing medicine, I made a discovery that changed my view of the world forever. It was something few understood at the time. I’m talking about an “alien molecule” that gets into your blood and reprograms your cells to become more “feminine.” When this happens to women, it throws off their natural cycles, makes them gain weight, and pushes them emotionally into a very anxious and frustrated state. For men, this “invader” makes them soft, fat, depressed, and unable to perform. When I first started testing for this back in the 1990s, other physicians thought I was of...
