Dr. Cornblatt’s background in medicine and nutraceutical development has shaped his perspectives on modern medicine and the US’s approach to healthcare as a whole. While in medical school at Johns Hopkins, Dr. Cornblatt began identifying overlapping factors in cancer cases in his region that seemed to be overlooked, including physical environment, diet, and lifestyle. This sparked his commitment to asking the questions that healthcare professionals should ask their patients.
This has led him to his current role as the Chief Medical Officer for BioHarvest Sciences and co-founder and Chief Scientific Officer of International Nutrition Associates (INA). BioHarvest Sciences is the first and only fully validated industrial-scale plant cell technology platform for the production of plant metabolites.
He joins us to talk about the challenge of sourcing raw, organic ingredients, why the first question you get asked when you take your pet to the vet is "What do they eat?" but why human doctors don't ask that, and more about the science and ethics behind BioHarvest Sciences.
