Cutting through the hype surrounding gluten

October 19, 2014- Interviewed by Steven E. Greer, MD

Did you know that one out of three Americans think that they are “gluten intolerant”. Of those 100 Million people, only 13 Million really have a medical problem caused by gluten.

Hoping to reduce some of the current “gluten hysteria,” he has written a book explaining what gluten is, who can and can’t eat it, and why. We interviewed him.

Book review: “ADHD Does Not Exist” By Richard Saul, MD

March 20, 2014- By Steven E. Greer, MDadhd-does-not-exist-richard-saul1

Richard Saul, MD strived to be provocative with his new book ADHD Does Not Exist. He not only succeeded, but also backed up his bold assertion with ample sound logic and supporting data.

This is an important book because ADHD, as defined by the psychiatry guidelines in the DSM-V, can now be diagnosed in 5% of the United States population. Up to 11% of all children have been diagnosed. Up to 20% of high-school-age boys have been diagnosed with ADHD: a 40% rise in just ten years.

Dr. Saul estimates that the monetary cost of this epidemic of ADHD is as high as $50 Billion. $14 Billion, or 27% of that $52 Billion, was spent on families related to the ADHD “patient”. Another $12 Billion was spent on schools and other health related costs. Read more »

Book review: My Beef with Meat

my-beef-with-meatBook by Rip Esselstyn

Publisher: Grand Central Life & Style, Hachette Book Group

Review by Steven E. Greer, MD

What do all of these extremely athletic and strong professional athletes have in common? Heavyweight champion Mike Tyson, Heisman Trophy football star and MMF fighter Herschel Walker, Heisman Trophy winner Ricky Williams, new NFL running back sensation Arian Foster, 9-time Olympic gold medal sprinter Carl Lewis, tennis greats Martina Navratilova, Venus Williams, and the now-fit-and-trim President Bill Clinton, have all turned to a “plant-strong” (or vegan) diet replacing animal protein with vegetable protein.

Following up on his first best-selling book, “The Engine 2 diet”, his second book, “My Beef with Meat”, Rip Esselstyn explains why giving up meat will make you healthier and more energetic. Rip is currently a 49-year-old triathlete and firefighter in Austin, Texas, and consultant to Whole Foods.

Rip is the son of Caldwell Esselstyn, MD: An endocrine surgeon at the Cleveland Clinic and Olympic gold medal winner in rowing. The 2011 documentary “Forks Over Knives” was based on Dr. Esselstyn’s work, and influenced President Clinton to adopt the meat-free diet after his heart surgery. Read more »
