  In a rebroadcast from June 20, 2010, Keith talks with UTEP alumnus Dr. Ralph E. Holsworth, Jr., DO.  Dr. Holsworth is a former student of Keith's.  Dr. Holsworth has been studying nattokinase, an enzyme derived from an ancient Japanse food known as Nattō, which is derived from fermented soybeans.  Nattokinase has been shown to break up blood clots.  Holsworth also tells us the difference between a DO (Doctor of Osteopathy) and an MD.  Dr. Holsworth is currently working as a family practitioner at the Tahoma Clinic in Seattle WA.  http://www.tahomaclinic.com/dr-holsworth/
