Patti and Damian talk genetics and psychiatric diseases with Dr. Lutter.  Risks for heritable illnesses in families and what the research on gene mutations is showing us are discussed. Dr. Lutter explains how the brain changes when we do not nourish our bodies and why it is not so much an appetite stimulant that is needed but rather a braking of the restrictive mechanism in anorexia.   It is a complex subject, but Dr. Lutter helps us to better understand it.   Dr Lutter is uniquely qualified.  He took a combined program to attain both his MD and PhD together.  His post doctoral work took him from research work with mice to genetics studies and now a clinical practice.
