Greg & Tom continue their conversation with Melanie Joy, founder & president of the Carnism Awareness & Action Network.  Carnism is an invisible belief system that blocks empathy over the eating of certain animals.  She talks about why the thought of eating a horse or a dog is often reprehensible to many of us who don't think twice about eating beef or pork.  She also talks about false projections that carnists may hold against vegans & vegetarians, but also about the false projections vegans & vegetarians may hold against each other.  Joy encourages all of us to live with the 4 "C's" - Curiosity, Compassion, Clarity, and Courage - and to interweave them into our lives to make us more compassionate creatures.  Aired Feb. 24, 2013.

Louie talks with Donald E. Moss, PhD, neuroscientist, researcher, and author of "Alzheimer's: My Journey to a Next Generation Treatment."  Moss talks about the development of the drug MSF which has been shown in animal & human trials to selectively boost acetylcholine in the brains of Alzheimer's patients without the side effects of medicines on the market today which also boost acetylcholine levels.  It would cost hundreds of millions of dollars to get FDA approval on MSF, so it has essentially fallen through the cracks.  Moss and his colleagues are currently looking for private sources of funding to continue their research and eventually offer it to Alzheimer's patients at the staggeringly low cost of $1-$2 dollars a day. Learn more about MSF and about plans to make MSF available to the public at http://brain-tools.comAired Feb. 9, 2013.
