Interview by Karen Burnett
The following article is an interview with Aristo Vojdani, PhD, is a respected researcher, scientist, speaker and author. Dr. Vojdani’s work with Gulf War veterans was a defining discovery in understanding multifactorial diseases. Vojdani’s observations resulted in understanding how exposure to a variety of environmental conditions, for example, xenobiotics, vaccinations, and other stressor-related conditions of the Gulf War environment negatively affected immune response. This in turn offered physicians a greater awareness in variations in individual susceptibility to environmental stresses and toxicants, better known as toxicogenomics, which is also a factor in celiac disease, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia and other multifactorial diseases.
Dr. Vojdani has published over 120 articles in peer reviewed scientific journals, is a multiple US patent holder for laboratory assays, and has received the Herbert J. Rinkle Award from the American Academy of Environmental Medicine for excellence in teaching the techniques of environmental medicine. Aristo Vojdani is presently a professor of neuroimmunology at the Carrick Institute for Graduate Studies and is a past associate professor at the Charles Drew/UCLA School of Medicine and Science.He is the founder, technical director, and CEO of Immunosciences Lab, Inc, in Los Angeles, California, and serves as chief scientific advisor at CYREX Laboratories in Phoenix, Arizona. He sits on the editorial board of four scientific journals and is a guest editor of six journals. (Altern Ther Health Med. 2013;19(1):70-75.)
