Dr. Sears Comments:

Unlike this short abstract, a more comprehensive story on CBSnews.com at least recognized my published work on the benefits of high-dose omega-3 fatty acid supplementation in preventing brain damage in an animal concussion study.

If you really want to reduce concussions, simply outlaw heading in the first place.

Dr. Sears Comments:

It's nice to see Time finally acknowledging a linkage between inflammation, insulin resistance, and Alzheimer's. My new book, “The Mediterranean Zone,” explores that linkage in far greater detail.

Dr. Sears Comments:

A pasta salad is a swell idea, but only if it is using Zone Pasta consisting of a new type of patented pasta that suppresses hunger while retaining mental focus.

Dr. Sears Comments:

Good start with recommending fruits and vegetables to get polyphenols, but it only helps if they are balanced by low-fat protein and restriction of omega-6 and saturated fats.

Dr. Sears Comments:

Soy milk sales are dropping because it doesn't taste as good as almond milk.  It still has a beany taste that is not going away.  For my choice, the best-tasting milk remains lactose-free 2% milk.  It also contains 8 times more protein than almond milk.

Dr. Sears Comments:

Try doing a little math at the same time. Make sure the ratio of fat:protein:carbohydrate is about 1:2:3. If it is, then it is likely to produce the right hormonal response in your child to reduce obesity.

Dr. Sears Comments:

Not so fast.  The reason they call it breakfast is because you are "breaking an overnight fast".  The body is running on cortisol, and the glycogen stores in the liver are completely depleted by supplying the brain energy via release of stored glucose while you were sleeping.  Unless you think two cups of coffee rich in caffeine is a great breakfast, I would recommend that you make this the ideal time to refuel the body.

Dr. Sears Comments:

The fetus needs omega-3 fatty acids for optimal brain development.  All fish have relatively high levels of PCBs as do fish oil in health-food stores.  Look for those brands that have a PCB level of less than 5 ppb (there aren't too many) as the ideal source of omega-3 fatty acids for the fetus.

Dr. Sears Comments:

I guess no one at the FDA reads the published data on the use of high-dose fish oil to reduce concussion injuries in animal models.
