A transcript of the Lew Rockwell Show episode 401
with Bill Sardi.
: Well, good morning. This is the Lew Rockwell Show. And it's great to have as our guest this morning, Mr. Bill Sardi. First of all, if you're not entirely up on Sardi-ism, take a look at his archive on LewRockwell.com, his magnificent health articles, political articles, financial articles. Not only will you learn a lot, but it goes down very easily because he's such a wonderful writer and such a clear thinker. And I also want to highly recommend, if you don't happen to live in Bill's area in California, you can hear his unbelievably great daily radio show that's on 9:00 to 10:00 California time. It's KLAV1230am.com. And we'll put that, of course, into this podcast, as well as his Knowledge of Health site, his natural health library and online book site. Really, he's a one-man combination of the most important things we need to know about.
And, Bill, it's so wonderful to have you on the show again.
And before we talk about what you've done in terms of vitamins and supplements and the banking system and the political cronies and all the rest of the terrible problems we have in this country, tell me what has happened to your magnificent discovery of resveratrol? What it is, what it does, and how - I guess, we shouldn't be surprise, though it's still an outrage - how the medical establishment has treated you.
: It's very interesting. We got a front-line view of this for the last 10 years. How does modern medicine thwart maybe one of the greatest discoveries of all time? That is, that maybe we could live 120 healthy years. And so the promise of it is that if we just took a diet of one meal a day calorie restriction and we consume that, as it's been proven in every form of life, from yeast cells to roundworms to fruit flies on up to mice and even the primate monkeys, such a diet would almost double our life span and our health span. Now the point is we're probably not going to adhere to such a diet but they found, 10 years ago, that you could mimic the effects of that with little small molecules. And the key molecule was resveratrol or red wine molecule.
