The Empowering Neurologist – David Perlmutter, MD and Dr. Bruce Blumberg

Today’s Empowering Neurologist interview is with Dr. Bruce Blumberg, author of the new book, The Obesogen Effect.   

Being overweight is not just the result of diet or not enough exercise. According to leading-edge science, there are silent saboteurs in our daily lives that contribute significantly to our obesity epidemic: obesogens. These weight-inducing offenders, most of which are chemicals, disrupt our hormonal systems, alter how we create and store fat, and change how we respond to dietary choices. Because they are largely unregulated, obesogens lurk all around us: in food, furniture, plastic products such as water bottles and food storage containers. Research has even shown that the effects of some obesogens can be passed on to future generations by irreversibly interfering with the expression of our genes. The good news is we can protect ourselves by becoming more informed consumers.

In THE OBESOGEN EFFECT, Dr. Bruce Blumberg describes how obesogens work, reveals where they are found, and offers a practical three-step solution for reducing exposures. He explains why one size does NOT fit all in a weight loss program, what hides in our household goods, and how we should shop for items we buy every day, from vegetables and meats to canned soup and household cleaners, air fresheners and personal care products. THE OBESOGEN EFFECT is an urgent call to action to protect your body, clean up your life, and set a straight course for better health.

    He spoke of a “normal diet” a couple of times.
    What does he think that is? Also he said the
    mice got fat on “high fat diets”. How does
    that relate to humans?

    • Britt Guthrie Ammann

      Humans usually lose weight on high fat diets- the ketogenic effect
