My conversation with Louie B. Free on “Brain Food for the Heartland”
Last fall I had the pleasure of being interviewed by Louie B. Free, host of the Cleveland-based radio show “Brain Food for the Heartland.” Our conversation was wide-ranging, but the part I am most passionate about is the assault we are committing on the health of our children.
By feeding them a processed carbohydrate, sugar-based diet we are already seeing obesity and “adult-onset” diabetes in children as young as five! A lifetime of diabetes forecasts an epidemic of chronic kidney disease—dooming a hefty percentage of our population to life tethered to a dialysis machine and swelling the rolls of people waiting desperately for a kidney donation. We know there is a better way: it’s called prevention.
