Alternative News Channel Today – Neuroscientist Shows What Fasting Does To Your Brain And Why Big Pharma Will not Study It
Below is a talk from TEDx given by Mark Mattson, the current Head of the Laboratory of Neurosciences of the National Institute on Aging. He is also a professor of Neuroscience at Johns Hopkins University and a leading investigator of the cellular and molecular mechanisms underlying multiple neurodegenerative disorders such as Parkinson's and Alzheimer's disease.
I would like to address the Big Pharma issue first, since there have been countless examples of manipulating research in the hands of pharmaceutical companies in recent years. That's why Harvard medical professor Arnold Symour Relman told the world that the medical profession has been bought by the pharmaceutical industry. That is why Dr. Richard Horton, Editor-in-Chief of The Lancet, recently stated that much of the scientific literature published today is false. That's why Dr. Marcia Angell, a former editor-in-chief of the New England Journal of Medicine, said "the pharmaceutical industry likes to describe itself as a research-based industry as the source of innovative medicines. of the truth ". And that is why John Ioannidis, an epidemiologist at the Stanford University School of Medicine, published an article entitled "Why Most of the Research Findings Published Are False?", Which subsequently became the most Accessed from the history of the Public Library of Science (PLoS).
Dr. Mattson also addresses this issue towards the end of his video:
Why is it that the normal diet is three meals a day plus snacks? It's not that it's the healthiest eating pattern, now that's my opinion, but I think there's a lot of evidence to support that. There are a lot of pressures to have that power pattern, there is a lot of money involved. The Food Industry – Will They Make Money From Skipping Breakfast Like I Did Today? No, they're going to lose money. If people fast, the food industry loses money. What about the pharmaceutical industries? What if people do some intermittent fasting, exercise periodically and are very healthy, the pharmaceutical industry is going to make money on healthy people?
