    Vitamins, these are vital, New Series Part 7 , The B Vitamins, Vitamin B7 Biotin




    Vitamine was the term coined by Casimir Funk, a Polish Biochemist, (1884-1967) for the unidentified substances present in food which could prevent the diseases scurvy, beriberi, and pellagra. This is the pioneer work in the study of vitamins in which Funk reviews his research work and postulates his theory of the existence of vitamines, essential factors in the diet.  We continue our series on the Vitamins.  Part 7 The B Vitamins, Vitamin B7, Biotin.

    Dr. Christian Attends the 5th Annual Calorie Restriction Conference. 

    Dr Christian attended the 5th Annual Calorie Restriction Society Conference held in San Antonio 7-11 Nov.  The Society and it's members are studying the relationship between a reduced calorie intake and extension of lifespan in a variety of animal models.  I has been known since the 1930's from extensive scientific research that CRON (Calorie Restricted Optimal Nutrition) diets improve health and extend lifespans of nearly every species tested.  The members of this Society believe that it is likely that people who carefully adopt a CRON diet will see similar results.  Their goal is to help people of all ages live longer and healthier lives by eating fewer calories and maintaining optimal nutrition.

    Inside Outside Staff Enjoys a Dinner at the San Antonio Cardiovascular Society.

    Dr.  Christian invited the Staff of Inside Outside Wellness Center to attend the 25th Anniversary Christmas Meeting of the San Antonio Cardiology Society held on 6 Dec 07 at the Plaza Club.  A special guest was Emily Skillman, a Inside Outside member and the Executive VP of Human Resources at Frost Bank.  The Plaza Club is located on the 21st floor of the Downtown Frost Bank Building where she has her office.  The speaker for the evening was Dr. Robert Chilton, Cardiologist and friend of Dr. Christian from his Air Force Days at Wilford Hall.  His topic was "Diet and Heart Disease.  Pictured from L-R Danika Lewis, Nancy Flater, Rosa Gonzales, Dr. C, Emily Skillman, Jill Niccum and Jody Ognowski.

    How to become an Organ Donor, The Donate Life Texas Website

    Several members have asked how one becomes an Organ Donor in the event of unexpected death.  Dr. Christian has been an integral part of the Texas Transplant Institute Cardiac Transplant and Ventricular Device program since 1985 having served primarily as the surgeon who harvests the hearts and assists with Transplantation and other surgery.  Donate Life Texas is the Official Texas State Registry of those who have indicated their desire to be an organ donor.  When you apply for or renew your Drivers License at the DPS office you can register to be a donor.  The DPS will send you a confirmation letter and  Donor Card and your name will then be entered into the Donate Life Texas Registry.  You can also go directly to the Donate Life Texas Website and download the forms necessary to become a part of the Registry. There is a critical shortage of organs, tissues and eyes available for donation. There are more than 96,000 patients in the United States awaiting transplantation—more than 7,000 are Texans. Every 13 minutes, a new name is added to the national transplant waiting list. Every day, 17 people die waiting for a life-saving organ transplant. UNOS brings together medicine, science, public policy and technology to facilitate every organ transplant performed in the United States. Every day, UNOS assists transplant doctors, patients, and members of the public by helping to ensure that organs are procured and distributed in a fair and timely manner.     The UNOS Website.

    San Antonio Breakfast Club

    Dr. Christian was invited by Inside Outside Member Lynn Laurence to be the Speaker at the 1 Nov 07 meeting of the San Antonio Breakfast Club.  The club is one of the oldest civic clubs in San Antonio tracing it's roots back to 1918 when several leaders and businessmen of the city began to meet for breakfast.  The Club was Incorporated in 1944 and meets every Thursday Morning at the Quarry Golf Club. Dr. Christian's topic was "Hi-Lo Strength Training"



     It was always said of him, that he knew how to keep Christmas well,

    if any man alive possessed the knowledge. May that be truly said of us, and all of us!

    And so, as Tiny Tim observed, "God Bless Us, Every One!"
