Michael A. Zeligs, M.D. is the founder and CEO of BioResponse Nutrients. He is a physician with a M.A. in human physiology and a M.D. from the University of California. Dr. Zeligs returned to UC Irvine to complete a research fellowship in Molecular Immunology. Dr Zeligs was the first to develop absorbable diindolylmethane (DIM). The clinical study and scientific investigation of microencapsulated DIM has resulted in new uses including promotion of breast, prostate, and immune health. Dr. Zeligs’ work has encouraged new approaches to hormonal health, cancer prevention, and healthy aging. BioResponse is investigating the health potential of DIM under a clinical trials agreement with the National Cancer Institute (NCI) and collaborating health science centers.

Tue, November 18, 2014 - Lung Cancer Awareness Month -

November is Lung Cancer Awareness Month. On this episode, we will find out about the latest research, treatments, and prevention strategies.

Piyali Dasgupta is an associate professor at the Department of Pharmacology, Physiology, Toxicology at the Joan C. Edwards School of Medicine, Marshall University. She has two major research projects in her laboratory. The first project examines how nicotine accelerates the progression of lung cancer. She feels her studies are relevant because millions of people get exposed to nicotine via secondhand smoke and electronic cigarettes. A second project in her laboratory involves studying the anti-cancer activity of the nutritional compound capsaicin in human lung cancer. She hopes that the results may lead to novel combination therapies for lung cancer.
