The Health Edge: Is Alzheimer’s Preventable and Reversible?


In this episode of The Health Edge Mark and John discuss the metabolic disruptors that increase the risk of Alzheimer’s and other “brain-related diseases”. The explore lifestyle interventions proven to restore many of these risk factors. Might Alzheimer’s be preventable or reversible? The research is suggesting a very surprising answer!

The Health Edge: Protein, IGF-1 and Health


In this episode of The Health Edge Mark and John discuss protein intake, sources, and health. They touch on:

  • How much protein is sufficient for most
  • What are the differences between plant and animal protein sources
  • What are the benefits and risks of IGF-1 from a health perspective

The Health Edge: Advanced Glycosylated End Products (AGEs) and Health


In this episode of The Health Edge Mark and John discuss the importance of advanced glycolsylated end-products (AGE molecules). They explore the epidemiology and mechanisms that connect AGEs to chronic complex disease. They conclude with lifestyle strategies that can lower AGE burden and improve AGE management.
