Uncovering the Roots of the Obesity Epidemic and Most Common Diseases
ENDOCRINE DISRUPTORS
In 1985, the CDC decided to track obesity in the United States. Since that time, obesity has become epidemic in America and has considerably increased in the whole world. In the 1990’s it was also found that allergies (environmental and food allergies) were increasing and now they have also reached epidemic proportions. What has changed in our environment that is causing these health problems? Obesity is the number one killer in the United States and, increasingly, the world. It kills in silence and indirectly, standing as the root cause of a great many of the diseases treated by healthcare providers, including hyperlipidemia, heart disease, diabetes, hypertension, and malignant tumors, to name only a few. 
If any other epidemic had caused as many deaths as obesity and its comorbidities, the whole world would be diligently searching for a cure. Yet most healthcare providers still take a surprisingly casual attitude toward obesity. In most cases, it is treated as a more or less benign condition easily dealt with if patients would only put forth some effort. This is to say that obesity is often treated as if it were the patient’s fault, with healthcare providers frequently assuming that a patient’s obesity is the result of poor dietary choices and sedentary lifestyle. The root cause of the obesity epidemic is neither explored nor serious weight loss treatment plans offered.
Many providers are also at loss when faced with environmental allergies (asthma, rhinitis, sinusitis, atopic dermatitis, urticaria, angioedema…), food allergies and autoimmune diseases. Is what is causing the growing obesity
epidemic also causing the growing allergy epidemic? Are pesticides and especially endocrine disruptors to blame?
THE OBESITY MODEL
The hypothesis commonly postulated is that obesity depends on food consumption and sedentary lifestyles. The quality of the foods
is often questioned and the so called “junk foods” are blamed for being the culprits of the obesity epidemic. Many people assume that low-income individuals have the tendency to consume these junk foods and therefore bear the burden of obesity in the US.
There is no systematic obesity equation that takes into account all the variables that may be contributing to this phenomenon. It is,
therefore, difficult to find adequate solutions to the growing obesity epidemic. This course attempts to build an obesity model that encompasses all the determinants. Knowledge of these determinants is vital for finding an optimal solution to the growing obesity epidemic.
The Steps for effective treatment of obesity and its comorbidities
  •  Eat for your hormone type
  •  The optimal food Choices for optimal weight loss
  •  Role of nutritional Supplements in weight control
Many weight loss programs now recommend low carbohydrate diets, some focus on high protein diets and most recommend low fat diets. Few experts now incorporate balancing the hormones. The failure of most programs stems from not looking at all the determinants of the obesity equation. This course incorporates all the variables identified in the obesity model to formulate a weight
loss plan that works.
EPIGENETICS: DNA METHYLATION (HYPERMETHYLATION, HYPOMETHYLATION), micro-RNA, HISTONE MODIFICATIONS AND CANCER
Pesticides used in farming and household chemicals impact human health by increasing estrogens, decreasing thyroid function and decreasing androgens such as testosterone. Many of these chemicals are also known or are suspected to causing human neoplasm through genotoxicity.
A vast literature exists on DNA methylation (hypermethylation, hypomethylation), micro-RNA and histone modifications as the mechanisms through which environmental toxins cause cancer. The mechanism of epigenetics (effects of environmental toxins on DNA) and its impact on tumorigenesis will be covered in this course.
COURSE OBJECTIVES
  •  Identify and describe the interface between the endocrine system, the immune system (innate, humoral, cell-mediated immunity, complement system), and the coagulation system.
  •  Categorize the different environmental toxins and their effects as endocrine disruptors (especially the estrogen epidemic) and correlate with geographical distributions for the obesity epidemic, atopic and autoimmune diseases.
  •  Evaluate connections between pesticides, common household chemicals and what is called a hormone imbalance syndrome: high estrogen, low thyroid function, low male hormones and their impact on well-being.
  •  Discuss this hormone imbalance syndrome and its impact on obesity, comorbidities and allergies.
  •  Illustrate why the south and Midwestern parts of the United States have more obesity, more morbidity and mortality than other regions by evaluating pesticide maps, obesity maps, and morbidity and mortality maps for these regions
  •  Clarify connections between pesticides and growing allergy epidemic.
  •  Evaluate relationships between the endocrine and immune systems.
  •  Design steps to effectively treat obesity and allergy problems based on information presented.
  •  Present case studies to illustrate this integrative immunity approach to a 21st century patient.
  •  Epigenetics: Demonstrate how environmental toxins cause genotoxicity and cancer through DNA methylation, microRNA changes and histone modifications.
  •  Discuss and clarify how endogenous estrogens and estrogenic chemicals and mycoestrogens through their metabolites cause cancer.
  •  Show the evidence based research from journal articles, HCUP (Healthcare Utilization Project) database, USGS (United States Geological Survey) database and maps, and the BRFSS obesity maps that support the information shared in this training program.
  •  Use four books that synthesize the research on the connection among pesticides, obesity and allergy epidemics, as resources for this training program.
ITP FACULTY SPEAKER
BENOIT TANO, M.D., Ph.D.
ITP Course Director
Johns Hopkins-fellowship trained in allergy and clinical immunology and number one bestselling author of The Layman’s Guide to Integrative Immunity (2016), Benoît Tano, M.D. is a specialist, pioneer and foremost expert in the field of Integrative Immunity.
Dr. Tano is the founder of Integrative Immunity Health System, PC located in Edina, Minnesota. He combines his vast expertise in allergy and clinical immunology and in hormone imbalance syndrome to treat the root causes of 21st century chronic diseases.
Dr. Tano graduated from the Medical College of Ohio in Toledo, and completed his internal medicine residency at the Ohio State University Medical Center in Columbus. He then spent two years in research fellowship: one year at Ohio State University Medical Center, and the other year at GlaxoSmithKline in Research Triangle Park, NC, where he worked with the Respiratory Global Health Outcomes group.
After completing his clinical fellowship at Johns Hopkins Asthma and Allergy Center in Baltimore, Dr. Tano joined the University of Texas Health Sciences Center at Tyler (UTHSCT) as an associate professor of medicine (Allergy and Clinical Immunology). While at UTHSCT, he became interested in the relationship between environmental pollution and hormone imbalance syndrome and their impact on obesity, obesity-related chronic diseases, allergies, and cancer. Dr. Tano was certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine (2002) and the American Board of Allergy and Immunology (2006). In addition to his recent bestselling book, he is the author of Hormone Imbalance Syndrome: America's Silent Plague - Uncovering the Roots of the Obesity Epidemic and Most Common Diseases (2012). The Allergy Detective Series, Allergic Rhinitis Treatment Secrets Your Doctor May Not Tell You (2011) and the Nasal Allergy Treatment Roadmap (2013).
In addition to his extensive experience in medicine, Dr. Tano holds a Ph.D. in economics and taught economics for seven years at the University of Toledo prior to entering medical school. He has been published in numerous peer review research journals, and has presented his research at various professional national and international conferences. Dr. Tano is a member of the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology (AAAAI), and the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine (A4M). Dr. Tano has been a frequent and well received lecturer for A4M's Integrative Medicine fellowship program. He lectures internationally in English and French.
