Blood Quantum Limits 44 mins – “Native Americans in America are governed by each their own duly elected Tribal Council, whose job it is to look out for the best interests of their tribes membership. As all offical tribes are sovereign, they have final say over the basic requirements necessary to become an enrolled member. One of the key thresholds tribes impose, is that of a blood quantum limit. After all, once a membership has become diluted to a certain point members have such a small amount of Native blood they are considered my many to no longer be native – what listener JT describes as being a “one drop”. Other tribes require only a provable lineage. If a tribe imposes a blood quantum limit they did not have before, what to do with members who no longer meet the threshold? Should they be disenrolled? Or should there be a ‘grandfather’ clause and the change only be made moving forward? This is a tough debate, but we do our best discussing a complicated issue. …In a related topic, we discuss the minimum viable population to ensure healthy genetic diversity, a major issue for tribes wishing to consider the idea of a blood quantum limit. There is a fine line between encouaging folks to marry other Natives, and risking unhealthy genetics within communities too small to handle it. And in Iceland there is an Android app which allows you to “Bump phones before you bump in bed”. With a population of only 320,000 Iclanders face the very real risk of ending up in bed with a close relative. Like all small communities (Natives included) geneology is carefully documented. An interesting reality for communities faced with procreation among very small groups!” At the link find the title, “Disenrollment Debate & Blood Quantum Limits, Jan, 2017,” right-click “Media files disenrollment debate blood quantum limits.mp3” and select “Save link As” from the pop-up menu.

Broccoli Benefits 44 mins – “…Dr. Paul Talalay announced that he had isolated the phytochemical Sulforaphane from the embattled cruciferous vegetable.  It may not have seemed like much at the time, but over a quarter-century later, we’re still discovering new powers of this multifaceted compound. …Sulforaphane is of medical interest because of the cytoprotective (“cell-protecting”) functions that it encourages.  As of now, it is among the most potent naturally-occurring inducers of cytoprotective enzymes known to science.  A great deal of research is aimed at learning the mechanisms by which seems able to protect the body against chronic disease. While Sulforaphane offers tantalizing hints that it may be not just “healthy,” but an actual therapeutic tool, its status as a naturally-occurring compound is something of a double-edged sword.  The astronomical cost of running human trials to validate its therapeutic usefulness against specific diseases is a major disincentive for an un-patentable compound, existing in the public domain as the extract of a common plant. In Episode 190, Dr. Fahey walks us through not just the biochemical promise, but the bureaucratic brambles of how we can best make use of broccoli’s “secret ingredient.” At the link find the title, “#190: Sulforaphane with Dr. Jed Fahey, Jul, 2017,” right-click “Media files SDS190.mp3” and select “Save Link As” from the pop-up menu.

Yet with carbon emissions warming the seas, a phenomenon called “coral bleaching”—a sign of mass coral death—has been accelerating around the world, and the public has no idea of the scale or implication of the catastrophe silently raging underwater. Directed by Jeff Orlowski, CHASING CORAL taps into the collective will and wisdom of an ad man, a self-proclaimed coral nerd, top-notch camera designers, and renowned marine biologists as they invent the first time-lapse camera to record bleaching events as they happen. The effort is anything but simple, and the team battles technical malfunctions and the force of nature in pursuit of their golden fleece: documenting the indisputable and tragic transformation below the waves.

Diabetes Reversal with Ketogenic Diet 68 mins – “Today’s episode features an important interview with Dr. Jeff Volek, a researcher who has spent the past 20 years studying how humans adapt to carbohydrate-restricted diets.  His most recent work, which is one of the key topics of today’s interview, has focused on the science of ketones and ketogenic diets and their use as a therapeutic tool to manage insulin resistance. In 2014, Volek became a founder and the chief science officer of Virta Health, an online specialty medical clinic dedicated to reversing diabetes, a chronic disease that has become a worldwide epidemic. The company’s ambitious goal is to reverse type 2 diabetes in 100 million people by 2025. Earlier this year, The JMIR Diabetes Journal published a study coordinated by Volek and Virta that showed people with type 2 diabetes can be taught to sustain adequate carbohydrate restriction to achieve nutritional ketosis, thereby improving glycemic control, decreasing medication use, and allowing clinically relevant weight loss. These improvements happened after just 10 weeks on the program that Virta designed for people. In addition to his role at Virta, Volek is a registered dietitian and full professor in the department of human sciences at Ohio State University. He is a co-author of “The New Atkins for a New You,” which came out 2010 and spent 16 weeks on The New York Times best-seller list.

After farming up to an acre outdoors, Chad recently moved his entire farm indoors, focusing on 5,000 square feet of production under plastic to provide himself with a living from the herbs and vegetables that he markets to stores, restaurants, and a very small CSA. With over eighty inches of rain each year and no frost – or even cool weather! – to kill off or slow down pests and diseases, Hawaii can be a challenging place to grow vegetable crops. Add to that the cost of bringing fertility inputs over 2,500 miles from the mainland, and you’ve created a situation that could try the best of farmers. Chad discusses what he’s done to ensure that his farming operation succeeds in the face of these challenges. We discuss how Chad has developed a market for his products since he started his farm in 2010, how he’s changed his production in response to business growth, market development, and weather; and how he’s developed a worm-based composting system that brings him fifty to sixty pounds of compost each week with a minimum of effort and off-farm inputs.” At the link right-click “Download this episode” and select “Save Link As” from the pop-up menu.

Reptilian Thinking 86 mins – “Occasionally I mention the “false dichotomy” but I have not done a full episode dedicated to it since Episode-874 back in April of 2012.  That is more than 5 years ago!  Since that time many of my positions have evolved but the basic concept of the false dichotomy remains. I have been thinking about this a lot lately and nothing more clearly illustrates it than this common scenario.  I will post something on say facebook along with my opinion.  In that ONE SAME post upset people will attack me for my view in the comments.  That alone means nothing but here is where it gets interesting. In that same set of comments I will be called both a  Liberal democrat snowflake that needs a safe space  And a hateful conservative republican that is to stupid and greedy to care about people Or some such version there of!  Isn’t this ironic?  That two people that literally hate each other, will both hate me and accuse me of being the other side that also hates me?  I ask you does this make any logical sense?  No it doesn’t, until you approach the question from the right angle, when we ask why this happens, vs. simply if it makes sense, it actually makes perfect sense.” At the link right-click “Download “ and select “Save Link As” from the pop-up menu.

Smuggled Immigrant Deaths 50 mins – “It was a nightmare inside that truck. Maybe two hundred people packed in the back of the big rig sitting in the hot Texas sun. One tiny vent for ventilation.

Well, here at Sea Change Radio we like to celebrate the dreamers, and in 2014 we profiled Solar Roadways, a hot new startup at the time, based on the wild idea of paving roads with solar panels.

This week on Sea Change Radio, we give our listeners an update on the progress being made to bring this innovative technology to the streets, in Europe and via US government contracts. We talk to the co-founders of Solar Roadways, Scott and Julie Brusaw to get the latest on their company, learn about dynamic charging technology, and allow them to respond to criticism about their product.” At the link right-click “Download” and select “Save Link As” from the pop-up menu.

Trump Brain Drain 7 mins – “The rap on Washington and the Trump administration these days is that nothing is getting done. Well, tell that to anyone concerned about the climate crisis.

So, what’s an American who cares about climate change to do? French President Emmanuel Macron has an answer. The day after Trump’s June 1 repudiation of the Paris deal, Macron issued this plea: “To all scientists, engineers, entrepreneurs, responsible citizens who were disappointed by the decision of the president of the United States, I call on them: Come and work here, with us.” At the link right-click the down-pointing arrow at the end of the sound bar and select “Save Link As” from the pop-up menu.

The rule sprang from a Fact Magazine article claiming that 1189 psychiatrists found hawkish 1964 presidential candidate Barry Goldwater psychologically unfit to be president. Last summer Bob spoke to Paul Appelbaum, a professor of Psychiatry, Medicine and Law at Columbia University, who explained that he is a strong proponent of mental health experts staying out of the pundit business.
