Christian Wilde an Author/Researcher Focuses on Tumeric/Disease Research

Sunday, March 17th, 2019

My guest this week was Christian Wilde an author/researcher who has appeared as a favorite guest on hundreds of radio shows and has been a medical ‘go to’ commentator over 106 times on George Noory’s number 1 international radio show airing to millions of nightly listeners in the US and Canada, Armed Forces Radio, Sirius and computers worldwide. as 95 other nationally syndicated radio shows.

He has authored two landmark books, Hidden Causes of Heart Attack and Stroke and Miracle Stem Cell heart Repair. He also authors the Christian Wilde Stem Cell and Turmeric Research Report covering more than 87 catastrophic diseases.

The author’s work has been supported by the Directors of stem cell research, cardiovascular disease and regenerative medicine at 11 major universities, including Columbia, University of Utah, Minnesota and UCSD. He has been a voice for adult stem cell research, documenting the progress since 2002.

Before his endeavors into the medical arena, Christian was an independent song writer and record producer for Warner Bros. Columbia, Capitol/EMI, United Artists and MCA/UNI records. His current 14 song CD as a singer/songwriter is Journey On Hold.

He recently received the “Excellence in New Health Product Innovation” Award in Cambridge, Maryland at the Emord & Associates 10th year Gala as well as an award “For Inventing Novel and Effective Products that Enhance Health and Life.”

Longevity/Fasting/Stem Cells and Dr Valter Longo, the Guru of Longevity

Sunday, July 15th, 2018

Professor Valter Longo is internationally recognized as a leader in the field of ageing studies and related diseases. His discoveries include some of the major genetic pathways that regulate aging and life-threatening diseases and the identification of a genetic mutation that protects men from several common diseases.

He is a Professor of Gerontology and Biological Science and Director of the Longevity Institution at the School of Gerontology at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles, one of the leading centers devoted to teaching and research on ageing. He is also director of the Oncology Laboratory and longevity at the Institute of Molecular Oncology IFOM in Milan.

Professor Longo received the Nathan Shock Lecture Award from the National Institute on Ageing (NIA/NIH) in 2010 and in 2013 the Vincent Cristofalo ‘Rising Star’ Award for Research on Ageing, and the 2016 Glenn Award for research in the Biology of Aging.

In 2015, after a number of his papers were among the most widely cited in the biomedical field, Time magazine called him a ‘guru of longevity’.

Doctor Longo received a PhD from North Texas in 1992, and another one from UCLA in 1997 and completed post doctoral training in 2000. He has carried out research in the areas of fasting and longevity, cell biology and genetics, the regulation of aging and multiple  stress resistance systems in yeast and mammals, cancer, diabetes and Alzheimer’s.  He has over 70 peer reviewed articles, 4 books/chapters, multiple research grants, active grant reviewer, and student research advisor. He is author of the best seller The Longevity Diet: Discover the New Science Behind Stem Cell Activation and Regeneration to Slow Aging, Fight Disease, and Optimize Weight

Reduced Stem Cell/Vitamin A Deficiency

Wednesday, May 10th, 2017

Lack of a Vitamin A metabolite causes a loss of important stem cells according to new research published in Cell. This metabolite known as retinoic acid is essential in the process of activating and inactivating stem cells to regenerate cells. Specialized cells in the skin, gut, or blood have a short lifespan and require steady replenishment from adult stem cells that divide continuously. In 2008 it was discovered that a group of special stem cells in the bone marrow remain dormant most of the time and only become active to fight bacteria or viruses, durinmg heavy vlood loss, or as a result of chemotherapy. When their work is done these most potent stem cells return to dormancy. Current researchers found the mechanism that activate or deactive stem cells and that is the retinoic acid , a metabolite of vitamin A, that is crucial to the activation-deactivation process.

In the mice studies they found that stem cells are lost as a reservoir when they lack retinoic acid. Feeding the mice a diet deficient in vitamin A caused a loss of stem cells. This study added to those previously that showed vitamin A deficiencies impaired the immune system.

How Does Cancer Develop?

Friday, September 2nd, 2016

A new study reported in Cell  concluded that a variety of conditions are needed by cells to start forming cancer and this process helps to explain why some organs are more susceptible than others to developing disease. The research showed that cancers are more likely to start in stem cells or special cells that copy themselves so the body can grow new cells, repair damaged tissues, and replace old cells. But while stem cells more readily develop into cancer  cells they need to have accumulated DNA mistakes and be replicating to repair damage or wear and tear for cancer to start. The DNA mistakes can happen randomly as stem cells replicate and tend to buildup with age making cancer more common among the aged. Environmental factors such as tobacco smoke and UV radiation can also cause DNA mistakes.

Using a fluorescent dye to track the behavior of a particular group of cells in mice the researchers hoped to find out how cancer starts in different organs. DNA mistakes linked to different types of cancer were then introduced into the group of cells. They found that DNA mistakes by themselves were not enough to cause cancer. In organs where DNA mistakes were introduced into dormant stem cells,there was no signs of cancer. However, in other organs that were exposed to lots of wear and tear such as the bowel, introducing DNA mistakes into the replicating stem cells caused cancer to start. They continued “We can now say that cancer most likely starts in stem cells but is not just down to “bad luck.” The development of cancer involves a ‘Perfect storm’ of stem cells containing DNA mistakes that are replicating in response to damage or wear and tear.”  “Although stem cells can sometimes go wrong by chance, our research shows that things in our environment that lead to more DNA mistakes or that damage organs, causing these stem cells to divide, increases the chances of the “perfect storm” brewing. That’s why behaviors like smoking or UV exposure raises the risk of developing cancer.” “Our work also shows why some tyes of cancer are more common than others with tumors more likely to develop in organs with lots of replicating stem cells, for example the bowels.”
