Doug Batchelor: Hi friends, Pastor Doug Batchelor. We want to welcome you to this special feature where we’re going to be interviewing a very special guest. And I’m delighted today to have here in the Amazing Facts studios, Dr. Scharffenberg. Dr. John, welcome.
Now, he’s a friend, but I need to in full disclosure admit he is also one of the newer members of our Granite Bay Hilltop Church. And I was just so intrigued with his life, work, and testimony that we invited him here in the studio, and he’s going to share some life-changing information about some of the seven keys to a longer life.
Now, Dr. John’s got an abundance of experience. He’s a physician, nutritionist, and professor of nutrition for years at Loma Linda University, a graduate of Harvard University School of Public Health. You were director of the Pacific Health Education Center in Bakersfield. I’d been there before. You’ve got a special interest in health and longevity. Now, I didn’t mention you were also with San Bernardino.
John Scharffenberg: I was in charge of the San Bernardino County Health Department.
Doug Batchelor: That’s one of the biggest counties in California.
John Scharffenberg: Geographically, it’s the biggest. It’s the biggest county, amazing. I was on the secretariat of the Interdepartmental Committee on Nutrition for National Defense. That was the top nutritionist in the country. And we did surveys of all of our allies around the world.
