Who would you pay to hear at AHS 2012?

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created August 12, 2011 at 9:48 PM

My list would include Michael Rose professor @ berkley in evolutionary biology, art deVany, Ray Kurzweil, Nir Barzilai, TS Wiley, Luis de Lecea are my images of who I'd like hear. Some more clinical ties would be great too. I love reading about Robb and marks success stories on their site. I use these with my own patients when they say it can't be done.

I think I'd pay a lot of cash to hear Matt Lalonde talk about dish detergent honestly......we need science and vision. Vision is incredibly important about where this movement chooses to go from here.

Ts Wiley is smart about sleep issues. Her Wiley Protocol for hormone replacement is questionable at best. And she has consistently misrepresented her academic credentials.

There approach is my favorite, it outlines the upper and lower limits of everything and is great about not villainizing anything outside the neolithic evils.

Paul I mentioned that blog to several people at UCLA and sadly too few read it. Ned brings numbers to biology. The processes of biology are making a transition from being described by words and experiments only and now being defined by mathematics. The less mathematical our approach the longer it takes for us to change our minds and our dogma in medicine and biology. Words allow for self deception. Math provides allows for predictions that can be verified. See Galileo and Einstein my idols. This is the optic i see this situation. Ned would be a great speaker to wake the nerds up!

I'd like to see someone who addresses the workplace issues of warehousing employees, providing them with copious amounts of caffeine and carbs, while btichin' and moaning about inflated health care costs and stressed out employees... There will be a huge strategic advantage for those companies who manage to stop viewing cafeterias as "cost centers" and start viewing them as "fuel centers".

I wouldn't be looking for a scientific view, rather a business strategic view of how to use food in the corporate environment as a strategic advantage, providing lower insurance costs, higher employee retention, and improved productivity.

Dare to dream.

I've always liked Paul Jaminet's approach of specifically outlining the amounts of particular foods and supplements that one ought to take, and backing it up with sound research. Saying, "eat more organ meats" is nebulous compared to "eat a 1/4 lb of liver a week" (though I must say I think we should eat more than he does).
