Dr. M’s Women and Children First Podcast #11 – Dr. EA Quinn, Breastfeeding Through History

Dr. EA Quinn and I had a wide ranging discussion on breastmilk from an evolutionary perspective for podcast episode #11.
Dr. Quinn is a biological anthropologist with a specialty in human biology. Her research is broadly focused on understanding the ways in which human milk is an essential part of human biological variation and how such variation has been selected for by different ecological pressures.
Her primary research project at present is Infancy @Altitude, a longitudinal birth cohort study of ethnic Tibetan mothers and infants living in the Nubri Valley, Nepal. She is investigating the ways in which ecological pressures – in this case the ecological pressures of hypoxia, chronic cold stress, shorter growing seasons, UV radiation, and infectious diseases – create selective pressures on human milk and how this translates into adaptive patterns of child growth.
One of the major findings of this research was elevated milk fat in the high altitude sample compared to other previously studied human populations and lower levels of metabolic hormones than predicted based on maternal body composition.
Breastmilk is a magical human derived food and medicine all wrapped up into one. The magnificence of human milk is on full display during this hour long podcast.
I hope that you enjoy my conversation with Dr. EA Quinn,

Dr. M’s Women and Children First Podcast #10 – Dr. Danny Benjamin, Covid, Schools and Vaccines

Dr. Danny Benjamin joins me again to discuss COVID19 delta variant in children, vaccines and the critical research that his team performed regarding back to school in North Carolina. He is the Kiser Arena Distinguished Professor of Pediatrics at Duke University and the Principle Investigator of the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development Pediatric Trials Network. His group performed two large trials of children going back to school in 2020 effectively proving that children being in school face to face was and is safe. We discuss the safety of the mRNA vaccines in the 5 to 12 year old age group.

 

Enjoy my conversation with Dr. Danny Benjamin,

Audiocast #44 – Emulsifiers

The science behind emulsifiers and human safety is in question. What do we know about emulsifiers currently? Do we understand the mechanisms of risk? Can we make better decisions based on the science? We explore these questions and more this week.

 

Audiocast #46 – Fluoride

Why do we use fluoride to protect our teeth? Does it make evolutionary sense? What does the science say about the effects of flouride on our teeth? Can we do a better job of protecting our teeth via other avenues? These are the topics explored here today.

Enjoy,

Dr. M
