Guest: Dr. Susan Korrick & Dr. Malcolm Low
Dr. Korrick's group at Harvard looked at fetal exposure to organic mercury and its relationship to ADHD type behaviors and found a correlation. Surprising results was the linkage between fish in the diet of pregnant mothers and the prevalence of ADHD. Its not what you think. PLUS Dr. Low's group at the University of Michigan may have discovered the mechanism in the brain that causes a set-point for the body-weight your brain thinks you should be. This mechanism makes it harder for you to get to your target weight once you've been obese. Understanding this mechanism may help you re-set your set-point!
