Dr. Julie Gatza:

Interview

Added sugar is everywhere in the food supply. It’s so ubiquitous that you might find some packaged and processed foods unappetizing without it. 

Evolution has hard-wired our palates to prefer sweet-tasting foods to obtain quick energy and to avoid bitter-tasting poisons. But in America today, our diet has reinforced and strengthened that preference beginning in early childhood. Americans take in an average of more than 17 teaspoons of sugar (about 290 calories) a day from added sugars, often in sweetened beverages, far more than recommended. 

Sugar is added to countless food products, including breads, condiments, dairy-based foods, nut butters, salad dressings, and sauces. The sugar is added not just to impart sweetness. It’s also used to extend shelf life and adjust attributes like the texture, body, color, and browning capability of food. 

“Sugar provides our bodies with ZERO protein and fat and virtually no trace of vitamins or minerals. But what sugar does provide is a disrupted metabolism and an elevated risk of developing a degenerative disease and early mortality,” says Dr. Julie Gatza (Dr. Julie) of the Florida Wellness Institute. 

Here are five of the many ways that sugar can ruin our physical and emotional health. 

Sugar can suppress the immune system: A research study done by Loma Linda University in which participants were fed different forms of sugar, found that the effectiveness of white blood cells (our immune cells which fight infection) decreased up to 50% after 1-2 hours of eating sugar.

Sugar can cause premature aging: Diets high in sugar can damage elastin and collagen molecules in the skin, increasing wrinkles and sagging and accelerating the effects of aging. 

Sugar can unbalance your intestinal flora: Excess sugar promotes the uncontrolled growth of Candida Albicans, a yeast that can spread toxins through the intestinal walls into the bloodstream and trigger a chronic inflammatory response. 

Sugar increases the risk of depression: Multiple studies have found a link between diets high in sugar and depression 

Sugar increases the risk of obesity, diabetes, and heart disease: Emerging research also suggests connections between these high-glycemic diets and various forms of cancer. 

How to Ditch your Sugar Habit 

Now that we’re aware of some of the negative effects that sugar has on our body and mind, how do we break free of its evil hold on us?  Dr. Julie recommends the following: 

1. Eat quality protein with every meal and snack throughout the day to stabilize blood sugar, help curb hunger, and moderate sugar cravings. 

2. Increase fiber. Start eating more high-fiber foods such as avocados, lentils, quinoa, brussels sprouts, peas, oats, berries, and beans. 

3. Replace sugar calories with calories from healthy fats like coconut oil, avocado, flax oil, olive oil, nuts, seeds, and cold-water fish. 

4. Eat whole foods, not processed foods that contain a variety of added sugars like corn syrup, fructose, dextrose, molasses, and evaporated cane juice. Read the labels 

5. Toss out all packaged snacks, cookies, sauces, etc., containing sugars. 

6. Natural supplements to balance your intestinal flora.  Sugar cravings are a symptom of candida overgrowth. This yeast, found in the digestive tract, can be controlled with natural extracts like oregano oil, cinnamon oil, and horipito.    

“Eliminating added sugars from your diet may be hard at first, but you’ll find that you have much more energy, clearer skin, more stable mood, and can enjoy many other health benefits from living a sugar-free life,” says Dr. Julie.

“Sex, Diet & Tanning”

Authors Bob Dorr and Terry Winters

Interview

A new book, “Sex, Diet & Tanning,” is revealing that an FDA approved drug called Afamelanotide to treat people with severe allergies to sunlight (“erythropoietic protoporphyria EPP”) was shown in trials to active peptides (the “alpha-melanocyte stimulating hormone”) and produce an unexpected tan. Further variation in the R&D phase also showed the drug could increase sex drive and help lose weight. 

While the title feels like the tagline of the hottest new reality show, SEX, DIET & TANNING tells the detailed, personal, improbable and true story of what it takes to develop a new class of drugs and in this case, a revolutionary one that could not only treat rare skin diseases but potentially create a safe, natural suntan without dangerous UV light … not to mention improved sex lives and appetite control with second-generation drugs in this class. 

The general public has little idea of the arduous process required to make real medical breakthroughs – which is why we marvel when new vaccines and treatments are announced. 

Authors Bob Dorr and Terry Winters tell their story from deep inside their journey dating back to the early nineties providing each of their unique perspectives both in the scientific and venture capital worlds, taking readers through the twists and turns in the process of discovering, refining, testing and financing a potentially breakthrough treatment.  Specifically, the invention of a drug based on the natural tanning peptide alpha-melanocyte stimulating hormone (or a-MSH) which could create a natural skin tan, identical to a tan from sunlightwithout the inherent damage from UV light. 

Along the way, they accidentally (and hilariously) discover that one of the second generation drugcould also have an impact on sexual stimulation and weight loss, eventually influencing unique new drugs that are either now available or close to being on the market, including Scenesswhich treats extreme light sensitivity, Vylessi, (so-called female Viagra) for pre-menopausal women and a treatment for childhood obesity. 

Says Dorr, ‘There are now three FDA-approved melanotropic peptides on the market, but our drug was the first. And they all use the same pigmentation superpotency chemistry that we pioneered at the University of Arizona.” 

The book goes deep into the details, whether in the laboratory or in boardrooms all over the world as this small operation at the University of Arizona drummed up funding without the usual route through Big Pharma, eventually developing the drug across the globe in Australia (where skin cancer is a massive concern). 

Winters elaborates, “It’s unusual for a start-up company out of a University to actually result in getting a drug to market and most of the start-ups do not have the incredible series of events that happened with this development process. In addition, this drug got to market with a lot less spending than most drugs developed by pharmaceutical companies.” 

Through it all, readers will meet wily and notorious international investors (including one who was shot in a robbery gone wrong) and witness the gyrations and maneuvers to not only raise and maintain funding for research (on a drug that could cost $1000/gram) but keep them from going under entirely.  

They’ll also meet a maverick scientist on the team who through highly unorthodox self-experimentation stumbled onto the sexual benefits of the drug… seeing the intended effect of his skin pigmentation changing while also experiencing an eight-hour erection.  

The book also takes viewers deep into the science detailing the damage of skin tanning.  Says Dorr, ” The main thing is for readers to realize that the signal for ‘normal’ skin tanning starts with DNA damage of skin cells. Thus, all “natural” tans start with DNA damage that accrues over a lifetime to increase the risks of developing skin cancer.  A drug like ours (afamelanotide) circumvents the damage to get a natural and sun-protective tan.”  

“A drug like ours could dramatically lower skin cancer rates including the use of damaging sun tanning booths that use UV-A light. This drug does not damage the skin to produce a visible and photo-protective tan” – Robert Dorr, PhD 

  

“The drug is already approved by the FDA in the US, by the EMA in Europe and by the TGA in Australia to alleviate the severe pain from exposure to sunlight for a small market of patients with a specific kind of genetic defect.  If this drug is approved for cosmetic tanning, it is likely that the tanning salons would become obsolete. It will be at least as big as Botox.” – Terry Winters, PhD
