Welcome to -- daily practice till dawn. Boston's -- integrated health news and total wellness hosted by doctor Lindsay -- it. Internationally acclaimed expert in men's health sciences medical nutrition and -- best selling all their. Good mid morning and -- and I am your host doctor Lindsay -- And myself in the -- clinic love to translate science to help you be the best -- you can decent we've got a great show today. What's on is grain grain. Brain gain how -- we have -- gain because as we age most of you might not be aware of this. -- she didn't listening into some of the last few months of shows but as we age our brain ages it actors' fees it shrink. And that has it. Huge connection. With whether we lose our wits or not and other than the bureau of cancer. Is that your cognitive decline so we're gonna hear today about brain gain how we keep our brain. Muscle like it's out at the GM. -- -- -- What a sign saying about that Al were also can hear about two brand new causes of died B disk. One out of three adult Americans over their lifetime now configure type two died B -- Used to be called adult onset and it's happening younger and younger so they got rid of the adult onset and so we wanna know all the things that could be playing a -- to getting diabetes and it isn't just. Eating that Halloween candy. There are other things -- gonna learn about two brand new causes of diabetes and then we're gonna hear about nick being. Diabetes. In the bud. OK let's go to the brain. And this article is -- out the importance. Of the volume. And the shape. Of the brain we talked last week about how many is geologic conversations in the body your -- shape shifting shape is. Dynamic we critical. How the body works well the shape and size what we call the volume of the brain has a lot to do with keeping you. Knowing what you wanted to do when you walked in that room remembering somebody's name closing that deal. Being the best that you can be by keeping your wits about you. Total normal brain. And very important to portion of the brain called the hippocampus. Which is looks like a little -- is to see shape. Part it's based on the Latin word meaning seem monster looks like the little -- in the shape of the sea horse of the total size of the brain. And the size but very particular region of the brain. Called the hippocampus. Which is where a lot of our short term memory and kind of knowing who we are in space and our sense of who ER. Lives in the hippocampus. What the volumes of total bring in the -- -- directly related. In this new study. With the levels of Omega three fatty acids in a study of more than a thousand postmenopausal women in this came out of once again. More data. On the women's. Health initiative study and this was published in neurology chest. In the end of January January 22. And it was run by. James but hello who is a Ph.D. University of South Dakota. And this. The Women's Health Initiative is looking at every need is health being in our older life and of course memory. Remembering. Enough of our old memories and having short term memory to remember our newer memories and knowing where we are so we don't have to have a lashing. On the highways somebody's looking for us because we're lost. On the billboards. -- the Women's Health Initiative. Looks at all of the different tremors that have to do with aging and one of them was. Memory study. To examine the association. Of essential fatty acids in the body which most often come from dish. But they can also come from Chia seeds which are very high source of Omega three fatty acids. And there's one not it is the highest source of Omega three fatty acids and that's walnuts and interestingly enough walnuts are high in a number of other -- an -- compounds as well as melatonin. -- they're like the main main deal on if you wait we're gonna talk about walnut pot -- that delicious. So they're taking a looked at essential fatty acids that basically come from either fish. -- she sees a woman lot of people in. Austin Iraq looters -- need a -- of she -- season -- let's -- -- many people United States especially. In the middle of the country in the south never eat those foods so. The colleagues for taking a look at data from the Women's Health Initiative memory study magnetic resonance imaging. And this was looking at. Postmenopausal women they had the blood samples that were frozen. And they measured in their blood samples how many essential Omega 3%. Essential fatty -- they had and then they. Did a brain scan in the beginning at the end. So the blood samples were taken at the start of the study. And they were brain -- exceed neither brains EMC -- -- -- which is performed eight years later. And doctors admit this is what such a perfect design but they were trying to look at red blood cell Omega three index is an idea of how much this person eats foods. -- in these Omega three fatty acid. The most common monarch because of -- know it gas it EPA. And -- Texan -- gas to -- even hear these on ads now for kids you know they're reading these components into -- to make kids' brains -- And they measured the total fatty acids in the red blood cell membranes themselves. And then make -- these women for eight years and took a look at the volume. Of their brain. And hippocampus. The results showed. Dead. The overall brain size was slightly more robust in women who had the highest level. Of Omega three fatty acids but they hit it campus. Volume in particular which really is the center. -- your cognitive ability and your short term and long term memory this was the area of rain. Was significantly. Smaller and women who have the lowest level. Of Omega three. And it was hide -- more robust. And that's what a lot of the medications that are trying to treat cognitive decline -- trying to do is to -- value might. We value -- as the campus like women can now go into. And asked petitions while like we have above the -- -- practice lead you to solutions which is a great place and women can get their lips blown -- A lot of these cognitive decline medications are trying to get hippocampus blown up but if you eat a diet. Hire an Omega three fatty acids EU yourself by your dietary intervention. And keep your hippocampus. Blown out. So changes in the Omega three index can be achieved through diet this is something you can control. Along with supplementation. These can actually. Reduce brain after she and maintain better old brain. And hit campus you. So people who eat high quantities of fish or she is seats and walnut and summit the other not also have. Omega threes in them. -- nets have quite a bit statues have a little bit more. But not all not -- some of them often contain. I'll be mono unsaturated fatty -- but the top but they keep this woman took every day or at least every. On their day you wanna get in handful of -- and you wanna have at least two or three fish meals a week islamists don't have the potential contamination. That exceed it's. And there's more and more talk there's. Heavy metals and different types of and volatile organic pollutants. That can be bio accumulated. In bitch. There's also Dominic acid at the algae release that might be neuro toxic so. Fish food is great at it hard to get Christine. Issued. You don't have that issue with wanted to if you're buying organic Obama. You don't have that issue with she ST secure buying organic Chia seeds to let me tell you one of my favorite little walnut hot tea recipes. You put wanna teach you so then you pour on the hot water over the wallet to let him sit about an hour -- -- train their water off. And that reduces some of the bitterness in the -- And then you cut a few pieces of -- throwing a little bit of parsley. Thrown a little bit of soy sauce sea salt granulated garlic. Little bit of an onion. You blended up pretty well not -- it's totally -- here you can work with the consistency. It tastes just scrumptious TU. -- -- And you can have that on crackers she could have it with vegetables in you can have it on with avocado with absolutely delicious. But one of the ways lately that I've been enjoying. My high eight essential Omega three fatty acid. Seeds is in the morning I've put a few tables -- -- -- in water and money to set. Pouring them in -- Mel alternative like almond milk coconut milk. And I grind up the tables and some are received a tablespoon of black seeds. And then I'm mix those together with the -- seated just after leased by -- minute. Longer is better but I like it just by the ten minutes. And I put a little bit of Stevie and there and then I put one more tablespoon. Of sunflower seeds in just to give it a crunchy. Flavor of some sunflower -- -- ground. I'm basically having ground. Chia -- sunflower -- I want I at a key wanna send their ground up with a little teeny Vanilla melt in -- If you want you can take some wild oats whole oak -- Soak them overnight. -- off the water do that again. Rinse them once or twice today in in a day or two they have Little Edie -- cute little white sprout. When their sprouted they have more nutrients. And you can add the ground not mix -- not mix that high in Omega threes. To the -- oak -- are just so oak grove they're buying just so even if you don't wanna wait Italy. Push out a little white sprout. And put a little cinnamon on it and it's absolutely delicious you have a really great serial that you need. So there's ways to get these positive Omega three fatty acids in your body. And you know even the Framingham study that's been. Giving us. Data were so many years has suggested that low levels of these Omega three fatty acids which can come from this walnuts pine nuts cheese -- The lower the level more your issues took cognitive decline so there's. Also another study underway United States call the vital study which is looking at some Manning Omega three fatty acids and vitamin. On heart health and brain health on 20000 individuals a more waiting all of this with bated breath here with back and be about -- even these scientific researchers at the end of the study said there is enough evidence to. Supplement with issue oil so all these other -- your bad news about fish oil believe me if you look at the bulk of the studies on official who last. Fifty years there's so many more studies that say it's positive aspects don't get sidetracked or fearful. By a few that perk up at TP negative effects in this study was supported. By the national heart lung and blood institute they weren't slow meal -- -- they weren't sure meals -- was -- good study. You wanna keep your brain volume up. One who pushed back the risk of cognitive to. Klein. -- pine nuts dishes and enjoy yourself with that mamma cut takes a hold on us and we'll be right back. This question is for both men and women.

Right I want you to have a -- -- you can have of course is never a 100%. Guarantee. But we have tools based on evidence based science where we can optimize. The ability to stay healthier and longer so if you're interested you can email me at TL Burks and BE RK. -- and at gmail.com deal -- and it. Gmail.com. And let me know that your interest in hearing about all the details of the safe breast self help protocol. First ever. March 31 7 PM central standard time. OK now what we're gonna be talked about her brand new. Non sugary causes of diabetes brand new -- sugary causes of diabetes most distinct. That you get diabetes he gained a lot of weight around your middle and eat a lot of hi. -- foods but there's several other instances that have been linked statistic pretty. With increasing your risk of diabetes. And the first one came out of health consequences of smoking fifty years of progress that was announced at the White House just about a week ago. And it highlights. Diet Pete this is one of several new diseases actually being linked to smoking. And it was published online in January 17. It's called. Doctors should help patients with health consequences of smoking fifty years of progress so. Let's take a look at this active smokers to so you've got somebody that you love. It just hasn't given up smoking yet and believe me there's a lot I go to Tulsa Oklahoma. About one week out of the month an amateur dancer. And I have hardly any place check in good dancing their because everybody still smokes in the dance halls there. Makes me crazy active smokers. Have a thirty to 40%. Higher risk of developing type two diabetes compared with non smokers. According to its new data which was published by the surgeon general's office -- to this year anniversary report. On the consequences of smoking. And on this is really amazing the link between smoking and diabetes is -- Rio. And they stressed that a lack of attention is paid in the doctor's office. To getting patients to stop smoking especially. Especially. If you've been labelled -- died beat it's this is a major concern. The new report included a meta analysis. Which date to 2007. Last report. And they took a look at. Almost four million subject. Out of cool a 140000. Subsequently went on to develop I'd be just. And they adjusted for all kinds of other factors like there agent how much they weighed. And what they -- And compared with nonsmokers the smokers had a -- the risk ratio which means how they take a look statistically at their risk. Of developing -- beat -- which was one point 37. This is. Very very strong. And a third line of evidence for a link between smoking and died he just came from small or studies on people who. Successfully stop smoking. One of these studies found that people who stop smoking. They get much better insulin resistance because why smoking denser insulin resistance we know this from all the shows that we've gone over. Smoking contains -- It contains most cigarettes about a 140 different type of chemicals. Many of these chemicals clog. The insulin were sector. Anyone who even does give up smoking they're gonna have to go on detox the patient programs. To help. Roto-Rooter. How. There -- sectors. So they'll work much better. Another large study found that the risk of on tight to died beat is among those who quit smoking. Actually reduced. And after twelve years of not smoking it takes about twelve years. It gets to the level close to -- -- not quite. Of people who never smoke. And another study found that people who didn't smoke or five years women intend for men it got down close to the -- -- people who never smoked. A big deal is is that smoking also increases. In the body. Molecules of inflammation. -- dated stress. -- to a and what do what do we care about that goes molecules. Also. Create insulin resistance they make the insulin recess are not able to hear it becomes out. To the insulin a hormone. And that promote more abnormal glucose metabolism. We also know you know I've. Talk to you about the idea that sitting is the new smoking. And we know that the insulin reset her starts working. Worse and worse every hour where you sit. And you don't stand up. Your insulin were set to -- 7%. Less well. You dinged by 7% for every hour you sit and you don't stand up if you just stand up which contraction big I must -- At wake sure is -- step -- so if while you're sitting in front of the computer you stand up just twice an hour. You have -- -- inning of your insulin receptors just sitting is like a new smoking your insulin -- sectors at saint -- in any articles out -- it they even said. That if you go to the gym and you work out one hour a day but then you go to your desk in you you've done really well right got to in the morning and you make yourself have. At around seed practice and you went to the gym and now you're sitting for you are -- -- Dean your insulin receptor. One hour sitting does that seem to get up get down to right now I'm I'm doing to radio shows how couldn't stand up. What is it down to get my. In the new contract -- I'm muscles you start operating different enzymes that make your insulin -- to work better but there's -- another set. Of causal links. With diabetes that we don't normally -- considered now come out in the news -- one just came out February 11 just a few days ago. No large study showed. More than 52000. Adultery in the study from nineteen countries this is big big big big data flashing red light. For the public awareness. That individuals with binge eating disorder herbal lenient nervosa. So people who binge they over eat -- people who purge they make themselves throw up. Which is what the lenient -- is. There -- more than twice as likely. Twice as likely to develop diabetes. This study was just on 52000. -- remember this in nineteen countries. Also showed that individuals with depression -- intermittent explosive disorder people with two Russian worth thirty to 60%. More likely to get ideas. So we are seeing a link. To insulin percent are functioning. With the patterns of the way that we eat at the power of food. If you lead abnormally. Insulin receptor can start functioning. Abnormally. -- if you are to press the body mind spirit linked to body mind spirit -- when you get depressed. Insulin receptors get depressed all your cells Deepak Chopra told -- twenty years ago. You're cells are who you larger one and community. Near cellular conscious community. When you're happy you're cells are happy when you have true depression. Your insulin receptors can be unhappy. So this study came out and diet diet that illogical in January 30. And based deed that there is now a link. Between. Eating disorders and -- B -- And your mood and diabetes -- this is very important to know and this was. Many many people around the world and they don't totally understand the mechanism but I do think it's a whole mind body link. And so. You need to take a stand and that is the name of another study take a stand be active to reduce chronic disease may aging easier. People research shows that people who sit less. An increase their activity more. Have less depression less eating disorders. Less insert disk insulin is them. They have a lower risk of multiple chronic diseases. You have control and if you've never done a beef or even in your fifties research shows you just start taking a stand. Sitting less. Standing up and down more exercising more eating better. Having discipline and real vitamin. Real vitamin. Not too much. -- -- Don't make yourself throw up these are people who push and slowed down a Mac -- of time. So we've been talking about the new causes. Of died B just in particular smoking. Is. Really causing this insulin is some are teachers leave you already have pre diabetes so who have. Knows if they really have pre diabetes now and I hit a practice in California in the nineteen. Eight. You came in to see my team which is run by -- -- who was. A cardiologist. We would run a six hour glucose tolerance test on you and every hour we would also run your insulin level. Some people have normal glucose levels and their insulin is up and down most of the people who are risk kitten died be just down the road. Not everybody they're very cheap place to go anymore these days to do get a glucose tolerance and insulin tolerance test it's usually a two hour test. So what we do that most year doctors are more apt. To run. And this research comes out of our friends at Tel Aviv University. And they discussed nipping. I'd be -- In the bud but in the blood. This is relevant for all of -- could they say that almost Stephanie nine million Americans. Not to be pre diabetic. Which means in the next ten years she had a really strong chance. Of developing diabetes. So researchers at Tel Aviv University. Took a look at an association. Of patients. Certain values in their bloodstream. And to see who would go on and develop. Ideas. And they look at the medical records of 101000. Patient. And they followed their blood work or something called -- opened a one C. And this was done between 2002 in 2005. And they found that -- European open a one C. Was as -- was five point five. Which many of us think his spine. It was five point five or higher. Just even if I point I've. Yet -- almost a 21% chance of developing diabetes and by eight years. Many of us aren't told any Intel. UNC goes up and six this six point two I think is the diabetic range. Lot of Pacific hemoglobin a one -- -- I went seven I went nine and were not told anything what if we even smokers on top of that. So now there's going to be taking a look at a new special threshold. For nipping. Free diet be just in the -- by a simple blood test called the hemoglobin a one C and you want it to be below. -- point -- you want your hemoglobin a once seemed to be an -- -- in a Walgreens and get your hemoglobin UNC run. Member those old -- 11 o'clock. You know your children children are right now. Well -- February 2014. To you know what you're hemoglobin a one seat is. Every point 5% for every half a percent increase in hemoglobin a one C. Up to Stefan. This doubles the patient's risk of developing. Diabetes yes. So they were able to actually. Look at these blood. Levels of patience and figure out who was gonna get diabetes. And who wasn't going to give it and this study was one of the most comprehensive of its kind and it provides new compelling. At the -- yes. Really strong evidence of hemoglobin UNC can accurately gauge what's co announcer when you go see your -- you say. When you run my blood test doc can you also had the hemoglobin a -- C. Tell me if it's five point five or higher this and you want to don't wanna get on a more aggressive program. To make your insulin receptors stand up. And watch your back. Batter I am your host doctor Lindsay -- and and if you're interested in my new. Rest safe pressed teleconference in webinar that coming up. March 31 7 PM central standard time you can email me at. DL -- sin which is BE RK SO and she mail dot com. -- -- -- At gmail.com and I do. Private console so I love to specialize in women who want to get their insulin receptive to working along with their sex steroid recipients working and one of the used.
