Sidestepping Our Modern Day Disease Epidemic
We are living in an era of rapidly rising disease incidence, with autoimmune diseases increasing at an estimated 19% per year. Find out why this may be occurring, what you can do to protect yourself, and to treat yourself if prevention fails. Hint: One piece of the puzzle involves the recent court ruling in a California liability case, finding that glyphosate, the active ingredient in the herbicide Roundup, caused the cancer of the plaintiff. P.S. I will provide a list of books and topics that you might choose from to give a talk of your own at next year’s WeeM. I can’t read them all!
Peter Kraus has been a program chair for Chicago Area Mensa since the age of 27. More recently, he has become an amateur medical and life sciences researcher, and even though Mother Nature had gotten about a 3.8 billion year head start on him, he feels he is beginning catch up to her and to understand at least some of her secrets. If you can't attend his talk, read Incurable Me: Why the Best Medical Research Does Not Make it into Clinical Practice by Dr. K.P. Stoller.
