With more than 50 years experience in BioMedical Research, the credentials below are but a mere outline of the comprehensive, in-depth knowledge that Dr. Wallach possesses.
Dr. Wallach is a true health champion: He has been the plaintiff or co-plaintiff in 8 complaints lodged against the FDA in Federal courts, and has been successful 7 times! He fought brilliantly to ensure that proper information regarding supplementation with selenium, omega -3 essential fatty acids, folic acid and antioxidants would be readily available to all Americans.
As a result of his efforts, Dr. Wallach’s line of Youngevity products is the only nutritional company to receive the sanction of FDA-authorized claims.
Dr. Joel D. Wallach received his Bachelors of Science degree in 1962 from the University of Missouri. His major was in Animal Husbandry (Nutrition) and his minor was in Field Crops and Soil. Dr. Wallach received his Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree in 1964 from the University of Missouri.
He has written and published 75 articles in scientific and medical journals, as well as numerous books, including “Dead Doctors Don’t Lie” and “Disease of Exotic Animals” (a 1200 page Veterinary text book).
From a historical perspective, Wallach is to be regarded as one of the first practitioners, if not the original founder of Epigenetics, the new research discipline that investigates heritable alterations in gene expression caused by mechanisms other than changes in DNA sequence. Dr. Wallach also received his ND (Naturopathic Medicine) in 1982 and he has been licensed in Oregon and California for over twenty years and is a member of the California Association of Naturopathic Physicians and lobbies the US government on behalf of the Nutritional Supplement Industry.
His greatest discovery was the prevention and cure of Cystic Fibrosis; as a result he became the recipient of the internationally recognized Klaus Schwarz Commemorative Medal in 2011 for his work in the prevention and cure of Cystic Fibrosis and for his research in other selenium deficiencies disease such as Cardiomyopathies and Muscular Dystrophy in animals and humans. Emory University (1978) reported that “a classic textbook case” of Cystic Fibrosis as found in humans had been identified in a nonhuman primate. An assistant veterinary pathologist, Joel D. Wallach, BS, DVM, Yerkes Regional Primate Research Center, Atlanta, GA., 1977, unexpectedly discovered the disease during a routine autopsy of a 6-month-old male Rhesus monkey that died of unknown causes. The diagnosis was confirmed by Dr. Victor Nassar, an Emory pediatric pathologist at Atlanta’s Grady Memorial Hospital, and by Dr. John Easterly, a pathologist at the Chicago Lying-In Hospital, a national authority on Cystic Fibrosis.
Dr. Wallach not only volunteers his time lecturing on the benefits of Nutrition—the 90 essential nutrients around the World, but he is also committed in making better nutrition available to the public.
