Where have you been?

I’m still here. I’ve been busy trying to transition from the radio show, which we ended after over eighteen years, into web based “social media.” The problem is that I’ve never understood the appeal of “social media,” never been comfortable with it, and find it difficult to utilize. I thought the best approach would be to use an e-newsletter approach, as we have accumulated a large number of emails over the years, but that has not worked out. I set up a facebook page (willner.chemists.ny) and I started to “tweet.” Actually, I find Twitter to be the most promising, as it combines some of the benefits of the e-newsletter concept without many of the headaches. So I urge you to “follow” me on Twitter. The Twitter address is @willnerchemists.

Here are links to some of the articles I have recently written for Twitter:

Fructose and High Fructose Corn Syrup: Toxic or Tortured Logic?
I’ve always been somewhat uneasy about the recent demonization of fructose and high fructose corn syrup. Fructose occurs naturally in fruit, and is one-half of the sucrose (sugar) molecule. I certainly do not encourage or condone the over indulgence of refined sugar and/or high sugar foods. Calorie-dense and nutrient-poor foods, whether the empty calories are from unhealthy fats (saturated, hydrogenated, trans, etc) or refined carbohydrates, is what we should worry about . . .

Are you minding your PQQ’s? Maybe you should be!
PQQ (pyrroloquinoline quinone) is an exciting “new” micronutrient that you will be hearing a lot about in the future. Similar to CoQ10, PQQ affects mitochondrial function. The mitochondria are the parts of cell that generate energy. They are often called the “cellular power plants.” They are involved in other critical cellular functions as well, including cell growth. Recent interest has focused on energy, cardiac function, aging, longevity and mental health. . . Read More!

About Don Goldberg

Hello. I am what you might call a Nutritional Pharmacist. After college, I worked in the Pharmaceutical and Nutritional Industry, first in Quality Control, and then in Manufacturing and Product Development. Increasingly, as the years passed, I became more involved with nutritional supplements. I spent many years detailing physicians, herbalists, and homeopaths about nutritional and herbal therapies and products. In 1992, along with my friend Arnie Gitomer, I bought Willner Chemists, a well-established nutritionally oriented pharmacy. For the first time, I had an opportunity to communicate directly with the consumer, the patient, and the customer. I love it. This blog is an additional way for me to extend my personal views and opinions directly to you. You can also hear me on the radio, every Sunday, from 2 to 4 pm on WOR radio in NY (710 AM), or WGKA in Atlanta (920 AM). Or check our website, www.willner.com.

    Glad to find your blog! I prefer blogs to any other type of social media. I don’t have a FB page and I don’t Tweet. I don’t have time for all that chatter and besides, i’m looking for more in depth information and not new ‘friends’. The information you have provided through the years have been of great value to me and I refer to the Willner Chemist articles and reprints more than medical journals. So, please keep sharing!
