If you wanted to snack healthy it was a fresh but limited array. Today, that is no longer the case. Today we have hundreds of ready-mades, sometimes processed snack foods, from which to choose. You may have a bar in your purse, a couple in your drawer, and you wonder: How many can I have a day? What is the difference it is making in my nutritional health? Does it have to do with diabetes?

Prepared snacks and whole meal bars are the nexus between nutrition and time management.

The background you should know: It is scary when you look at the obesity and diabetes prevalence, uh. When our dietary guidelines came about back in the late seventies and early eighties, the advice was to eat higher carbohydrate, lower fats. A surge in diabetes coincided with this advice. US dietary guidelines for Americans are under scrutiny recently , because the dietary guidelines are still pushing high carbohydrate diets. Somewhere between 45 and 65% of calories should be coming from carbohydrates, it says. While this might be acceptable for a metabolically healthy population,  most people in the United States are not metabolically healthy. So, we must start to tailor our dietary advice. to be more specific to the needs of our people. You can do this for yourself and your family with the resources available at

Generation Bold Radio, February 6, 2022--Get Inside the Psyche of a True Though Leader-Esther Dyson, Founder and Philanthropist at Wellville, 23 AND Me, and (wait for it) a Cosmonaut
Get Inside the Psyche of a True Though Leader-Esther Dyson, Founder and Philanthropist at Wellville, 23 AND Me, and (wait for it) a Cosmonaut This Generation Bold interview is a must-listen for anyone who wants to start thinking like a thought leader…grow their organization, turn ideas into reality. Esther Dyson is a true Renaissance woman, making a change in how we all stay well. Esther is the legendary investor in twenty-three and Me. She can see potential in new ideas and turn ideas into reality. Esther is devoted to Welville, upgrading the health of five selected communities in the US and creating a  chain reaction to other communities. If your region gets healthier may be because of Wellville If you never had a conversation with a true thought leader, Esther reveals how she thinks and acts to create change. You will be inspired. She is a journalist, a philanthropist, an investor, and she is a connoisseur of change. She looks to see what will really work and tries to make it happen. And that is not easy. We will be talking about precision medicine, equity in health care, and longevity, how you get people together to really make a difference, and how you get government officials together to make a change in their community. Truth Nuggets from Esther: Truth: Build an organization that spreads success…An endeavor is a true success when it helps others not just to succeed, but in turn to also help someone else succeed. Truth: Inclusivity pays off in community change. The great purpose is thinking long-term. And it is thinking about the community, including people of different races and the poor. If we went to a new community and helped the upper half of the demographic become dramatically healthier, we would consider that a failure. We are really trying to reduce the disparity. We are trying to make the community feel more like a community. We go walking around in the streets doing that ourselves. We are basically helping the people in the community who are good at doing this. We are helping them get better because the people who succeed are more willing to share and collaborate than the people who are struggling. Truth Takeaway for life: Make new mistakes. It is always make new mistakes. Cause that is how you learn. Do not make the same old mistakes. And learn from your mistakes, so you always make ONLY  new mistakes. The basic idea is not to be afraid to try stuff, but do not try and fail doing the same thing over and over again. So, it is an encouragement to give things a whirl, like, doing Wellville itself. I mean, sure, people have started things, but no one was doing that. AND YES…SHE IS A COSMONAUT "Okay. So, I trained as a cosmonaut in Russia and spent a few weeks in Baikonur Kazakhstan*. I was a backup. I actually went to the space station and stayed there for a while, as opposed to most of the guys going up right now, or basically going up for a few minutes, hanging out. But they are not actually living there. My goal ultimately is to have it be boring and normal to be weightless. And so, if you stay up there for a week, you get over all nausea. It just feels familiar. So, I have not yet experienced that. I've been weightless a bunch of times, and I've been through the training. So interestingly, when I watch a space movie, my first reaction is, oh yes, I was there." *Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan has been the launch site for Soviet and Russian space missions since the beginning of space exploration in 1957. The first satellite and the first human flew into space from there. Today, the site is heavily used for Soyuz astronaut launches to the International Space Station.

Born in Canada, Rich Little got his start just like almost every other comic of his time - night clubs. he was a very popular comic in these clubs, but if there was one thing Rich was best known for, it was impersonations. He studied the voices of many stars his whole life, stars like James Stewart, Johnny Carson, Don Rickles, Dean Martin, Truman Capoteand George Burns. In the late 1960s, Rich was dubbed "the best impressionist in the world." During the 1970s, however, a rivalry began between him and fellow impressionist Frank Gorshin, who is five years older. Ultimately, Rich overpowered Gorshin and remained the best impressionist in the world. In 1973 Rich became more associated with Dean Martin and made countless appearances on the "Dean Martin Celebrity Roasts," honoring most of the people he impersonated.

Generation Bold Radio, May 3, 2021--Guest: James Carroll, Thor
On Star Trek when someone is injured, they are taken to sick bay where the doctor uses a laser to heal the patient instantly. We make those (just not quite as instant). The treatment is called Photobiomodulation (PBM Therapy) previously known as Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) and is considered by many scientists to be "a new branch of medicine" (Dr Roberta Chow MD PhD). Light (within certain parameters) can regenerate tissue, reduce inflammation and reduce pain. It does this by increasing cellular energy and reducing oxidative stress. These effects have been tested in over 700 clinical trials (RCT's) and thousands of laboratory studies and published in many leading journals including The Lancet, BMJ, Nature, PNAS, Spine, Muscle and Nerve, Pain, Stroke etc. Dedicated private PBM clinics are being born every month to meet public demand for pain relief and the former head of tissue viability for Scotland Lydia Jack demonstrated that the laser paid for itself with the first patient she treated. Already THOR has over 5,000 customers in pioneering clinics and hospitals in more than 70 countries and is the only company with FDA, CE, TGA and NATO clearance, and we are also listed on GSA, and eCAT in the United States for government purchases.

Dr. Bohr developed a research section in DNA repair at the NCI. In 1992 he moved to the NIA to become Chief of the Laboratory of Molecular Genetics. His main contributions have been in the area of DNA repair. He has worked on many aspects of DNA damage and its processing in mammalian cells.  He developed a widely used method for the analysis of DNA repair in individual genes and found that active genes are preferentially repaired. This observation was a major advance in the clarification of the tight interaction between DNA repair and transcription, a process termed transcription-coupled repair. In recent years numerous papers from his laboratory have focused on mechanisms of DNA damage processing, particularly on nucleotide excision repair and transcription coupling. A main interest now is to elucidate how these processes change in relation to aging.

Generation Bold Radio, May 10, 2020--Guest: Dr. Alisa Kauffman, Geriatric Dentistry
In Dr. Alisa Kauffman Own Words: In 1988, I had an epiphany. My best friend Beth Wilf’s father had impeccable oral health. He knew the importance of great oral hygiene and was on a regular every-three-month schedule with the hygienist at the office of Dr. Igor Gerzon, a prosthodontist and my husband. However, a stroke left Mr. Moorstein without speech and without the ability to brush and floss his teeth on his own. When it came time to see the hygienist after his stroke, he had to cancel. That was my moment to step in and help. I absolutely love helping someone to heal. Whether I am extracting a painful tooth or feel the joy of seeing a patient take the first bite of food and chew it with new, well-fitting dentures that I created. Treating Mr. Moorstein was the first time I attended to a patient in their home, and thus, Geriatric Housecall Dentistry was born.The core services of Geriatric House Call Dentistry include emergency visits, second opinions, exams, cleanings, small fillings, ARREST (Silver Diamine Fluoride) treatment, extractions, partial and denture repair, fabricating complete and partial dentures. Dr. Alisa Kauffman teaches caregivers how to perform oral care on those who refuse or are unable to care for their own teeth. Alisa always tells her patients, “we only brush the teeth that we want to keep!”

 The rising costs of dental care preventing family members from obtaining the treatment they needed inspired Paul McTaggart to establish Dental Departures – an online company that hooks up global dental providers with patients. Surprised his new wife had not been to a dentist in years because a chef’s salary couldn’t afford it was the motivation for McTaggart to explore inexpensive dental care on the internet. He found a lack of affordable dental care was not just a problem in the US, but in Europe, Australia and New Zealand too. The results also pointed to savings of around 70% in countries including Mexico, Thailand and Hungary – but with scant authoritative information about the quality. With his wife and young family, McTaggart set about finding out, moving to Mexico and then Thailand. Coupled with his background in technology, Dental Departures was born.

Generation Bold Radio, July 14, 2019--Guest: Jane Mathews, "The Art of Living Alone and Loving It"
Jane Mathews was born in England, but her career in advertising enabled her to live all over the world (Amsterdam, Chicago, Singapore, London) but now she calls Sydney, Australia home.  When she got divorced several years ago, and unexpectedly found herself living alone, she tried to find a book to help navigate its sometimes treacherous shallows, but couldn't. So she wrote one herself.  "The Art of Living Alone and Loving It" seems to have really resonated with readers and it has been translated into 8 languages. Her premise is that to enjoy living alone you have to examine each aspect of your life and adapt it to solo living accordingly.  You have to course correct and be proactive.  People living alone is the fastest growing demographic in the world.  We are a mighty army, although it doesn't always feel like it, and there remains a stigma to living alone, not to mention the specter of loneliness sulking in the corner.
