Sugar: The Bitter Truth – Robert H. Lustig, MD, UCSF Professor of Pediatrics in the Division of Endocrinology, explores the damage caused by sugary foods. He argues that fructose (too much) and fiber (not enough) appear to be cornerstones of the obesity epidemic through their effects on insulin.

The Skinny on Obesity (Ep. 1): An Epidemic for Every Body -How did we get so fat, so fast? The debut episode of this 7-part series debunks the theory that obesity only affects the “gluttons and sloths” among us and is, in fact, a public health problem that impacts everyone.

The Skinny on Obesity (Ep. 2): Sickeningly Sweet:  Dr. Robert Lustig illustrates the overabundance of sugar in today’s processed convenience foods and explains how our bodies metabolize these sugars in the same way as alcohol or other toxins, causing damage to the liver and other organs.

The Skinny on Obesity (Ep. 3): Hunger and Hormones- A Vicious Cycle:  Sugar impacts the brain just as much as the waistline. In this episode, Dr. Robert Lustig explains the biochemical shifts that sugar causes, making us store fat and feel hungry at the same time.

The Skinny on Obesity (Ep. 4): Sugar – A Sweet Addiction:  This episode explores the cycle of addiction that sugar causes in the brain, much in the same way as drugs and alcohol.

The Skinny on Obesity (Ep. 5): Generation XL:  An unnerving trend of obese infants is just one indication that obesity can be passed on from mother to fetus. This installment looks towards the next generation, with an emphasis on preventive care and pre-natal health.

The Skinny on Obesity (Ep. 6): A Fast-Paced Fast Food Life:  The pace of modern life is a key contributor to today’s obesity epidemic. UCSF’s Elissa Epel and Barbara Laraia explain the stress connection and offer practical and effective solutions that don’t involve dieting and exercise.

The Skinny on Obesity (Ep. 7): Drugs Cigarettes Alcohol…and:  UCSF experts offer a frank indictment of the country’s agricultural policy and food industry, which have made it nearly impossible to avoid sugar in our daily diet, and suggestions for possible remedies.

How the Government Makes You Fat: Gary Taubes on Obesity, Carbs, and Bad Science:’s Zach Weissmueller talked with Taubes about his controversial work in the world of nutrition and epidemiology, including Taubes’ hypothesis that carbohydrates, not dietary fat, overeating, or lack of physcial activity, are the primary factor causing obesity. Other topics include the inability of governments and large informational institutions such as the American Heart Association to adapt to new information, the mess of bad legislation and bad science that Taubes believes led to America’s obesity problem, and why many libertarians seem to love the Paleo Diet .

Wheat: The UNhealthy Whole Grain-Part 1:  Dr. William Davis, author of the NY Times Bestseller, Wheat Belly: Lose the Wheat, Lose the Weight and Find Your Path Back to Health, explains why the wheat of today is not the wheat of yesterday and why it has become so destructive to health.

Can the foods you eat impact your chance for developing Alzheimer’s?:Rhode Island Hospital researcher Suzanne de la Monte, MD, looks at the link between nitrates and nitrites — found in many food products — and the development of Alzheimer’s disease, as well as the link between diabetes and Alzheimer’s.

How to Win an Argument with a Vegetarian – Denise Minger:  Vegetarianism is frequently cited as being a healthier diet than omnivorism or a paleo diet. This presentation examines the evidence behind vegetarian and vegan health claims, including the Adventist Health Studies, heart disease studies, and the success of plant-based diets ala Esselstyn and Ornish with treating chronic disease.

The Vegetarian Myth:  What we eat is destroying both our bodies and the planet, according to author Lierre Keith, a recovering twenty-year vegan. While she passionately opposes factory farming of animals, she maintains that humans require nutrient-dense animal foods for good health. A grain-based diet is the basis for degenerative diseases we take for granted (diabetes, cancer, heart disease) – diseases of civilization. Annual grain production is destroying topsoil and creating deserts on a planetary scale. Lierre urges the restoration of perennial polycultures for longterm sustainability.

Nutrition and Health – David Getoff:  This is the most important HEALTH class of your entire life. There has probably never been a more thorough course in improving your health and learning the facts. These are facts that you may never hear from our politically correct media or the books and periodicals which contradict one another with every new issue that hits the newstands. Preventive medicine does not mean diagnosing illnesses sooner or earlier, it means preventing them from occuring in the first place. Good health requires some work on your part.
