The quantum cook

Last month, WDDTY was saddened to learn of the passing of Dr Annemarie Colbin, one of its panel members, a visionary in the natural-food movement and a dear friend. In 1977, in need of income to support her young daughters, Dr Colbin started the Natural Gourmet Cookery School in the kitchen of her Upper West Side apartment. As the school likes to advertise, she was teaching kale and quinoa before the general public had ever heard of it.

Nearly 40 years later, the Natural Gourmet Institute for Health and Culinary Arts, as it's now known and which long ago moved to its own premises in Manhattan, became one of the top schools in America for natural cookery, and the first and only natural-foods cooking school accredited by the New York State education department to offer a chef's training programme in the subject, graduating to date more than 2,500 natural gourmet chefs from 45 nations.

The second brain

In 1992, after rediscovering a network of neurotransmitters in the gut that act in a similar way to ordinary neurons, Dr Michael Gershon, chairman of the department of anatomy and cell biology at New York-Presbyterian Hospital/Columbia University Medical Center, an expert in the new field of neurogastroenterology,christened this phenomenon 'the second brain'.

He and others have since found that theenteric nervous system, as its technically known, consists of some 30 neurotransmitters and vast sheaths of neurons embedded all along the nine meters of our alimentary canal-100 million of them in all, more than are present in either the spinal cord or peripheral nervous system. In fact, the self-same genes involved in the formation of synapses between neurons in the primary brain are also involved in the formation of synapses in the gut brain.

The secret message of pain

We are a society gripped by constant pain of one sort or another-and life appears to be getting more painful by the year. In the UK alone, according to government statistics, at least a third of all households-representing some eight million of us-have one or more members suffering from moderate-to-severe persistent pain of some variety. This is two to three times more than the number of such sufferers in the 1970s.

Matters are even worse in the US. According to the American Pain Foundation, more than 26 million Americans ages 20 to 64 experience frequent back pain alone. Almost a third of all adults aged 65 or over report some variety of knee pain, and more than one-sixth report having hip pain or stiffness. Staggeringly, some 25 million cases of pain have to do with migraine, or lower facial pain or jaw pain such as a temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder.

It's only natural

The scene would not look out of place in Breaking Bad. Special Forces in camouflage gear and night-vision goggles stealthily break into a house and hold up its terrified owner, still in his dressing gown, shining a light in his face as they catch him holding a bottle of what appears to be illegal contraband.

"Guys, GUYS," says the terrified owner, who turns out to be Mel Gibson, "it's only vitamins." The SWAT team are unimpressed. Gibson is still trying to get them to see sense as they arrest him and clamp on the cuffs: "Vitamin C, you know, like in oranges?"
