Temple of Health Radio Show with Dr. Susan Kolb interviewing special guest Dr Kedar Prasad
Discussing: "Fight Heart Disease with Vitamins and Antioxidants”
Guest, Kedar Prasad
Dr. Kedar N. Prasad, CSO was the first person in the United States to receive a Ph.D. degree in Radiation Biology from the University of Iowa, Iowa City. In 1979, he was the first to show that vitamin C can enhance the effect of radiation and chemotherapeutic agents on tumor cells. In 1982, he discovered that vitamin E succinate was the most effective form of vitamin E in killing cancer cells but not normal cells. Subsequently, he showed that vitamin E succianate enhanced the killing effect of radiation and chemotherapeutic agents on tumor cells, but not normal cells. He also demonstrated the novel concept that multiple antioxidants are more effective in killing tumor cells than the individual antioxidants. He has published many articles and books in the areas of nutrition and cancer, and nutrition and neurological diseases particularly Alzheimer's disease and Parkison's disease. These studies were published in highly prestigious journals such as Science, Nature, and Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, USA. He taught Radiation Biology to residents in Radiology and Nutrition and Cancer to Medical Students. Dr. Prasad has consistently obtained NIH grants for his research during his 35 years of research career.
Dr. Prasad is a member of several professional societies including Radiation Research Society, Society for Experimental Biology and Medicine, American Society for Cell Biology, American Association for Cancer Research, American Society for Neurochemistry, American Society for Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics, International Society of Developmental Neuroscience, International Brain Research Organization (IBRO).

• Invitation by the Nobel Prize Committee to nominate a candidate for the Nobel Prize in Medicine for 1982
