  • Dr. John Poothullil & Dr. Peter Phillips

    in Medicine

    Joining me on the show today is Author and Retired Pediatrician and Immunologist, Dr. John Poothullil.  He has just released his 4th book.  When Your Child Has Cancer:  Insights and Information to Empower Parents.  Joining him is Dr. Peter Phillips, Pediatric Oncologist.  
    Did you know that the average age of an adult with cancer is about 60? However, the average age of a child with cancer is just 6 years old. This suggested that childhood cancer might have a different cause than adults. Why is this?  What role can a parent play for a child who is living with cancer? Does diet contribute to managing and possibility eliminate cancer?
    Where are they finding success?   Both Dr. John & Dr. Peter are dedicated to helping parents with these questions and much more. Tune in for this informative show of information and hope.

  • Your Guide to Lipase

    in Science

    Lipase, also known as glycerol ester hydrolase, is a carboxyl ester hydrolase that gradually hydrolyzes triglycerides to glycerol and fatty acids. Lipases are present in fat-containing tissues of animals, plants, and microorganisms (such as molds, bacteria, etc.). Lipases contain phosphatase, sterolase and carboxylesterase. Fatty acids are widely used in the industries of food, medicine, leather, daily-use chemicals and so on. You can learn more at

  • Your Guide to Chitinase

    in Science

    Chitin and Chitinase are widely found in nature. Chitin, also known as chitin, is a linear polymer with β-1,4-N-acetylglucosamine as the basic unit, and its content ranks second in natural polymers. Chitin is also a major component of most fungal cell walls and is also found in the outer shell and intestines of insects. Chitinase has been found in microorganisms, plants and animals, and its functions are also different. You can learn more about Chitinase at

  • Your Guide to Cellulases

    in Science

    Cellulase is a generic term for a group of enzymes that degrade cellulose to produce glucose. It is not a monomer enzyme, but a multi-component enzyme system that acts synergistically. Cellulase is a complex enzyme mainly composed of exo-β-glucanase, endo-β-glucanase and β-glucosidase, as well as a highly active xylanase. Cellulases act on cellulose and products derived from cellulose. Microbial cellulase is of great importance in converting insoluble cellulose into glucose and destroying the cell wall in fruit and vegetable to increase the yield of juice.

  • Introduction to Superoxide Dismutase

    in Science

    Superoxide dismutase (SOD) is an enzyme that catalyzes the conversion of superoxides into oxygen and hydrogen peroxide by disproportionation. It is widely found in various animals, plants and microorganisms and is an important antioxidant. Superoxide dismutase protects cells exposed to oxygen, which can remove superoxide anion radicals in the body and effectively resist the damage of oxygen free radicals to organisms.
