Could something as simple as a toxin be the death knell of evolution? That’s the question today for Kevin’s guest Dr. Olen Brown. Dr. Brown is an expert in toxicology and has an impressive resume of degrees and studies. If anyone is qualified to speak about how unscientific evolution is, it’s him.
Today on Educate For Life, learn how toxins, enzymes, and even ATP, a simple cellular fuel, provide mountains of evidence that evolution is an impossibility. To learn more about Dr. Brown and his work check out his website and his CV.

SCIENTIFIC INTEREST AREAS:
“Science and technology, and the various forms of art, all unite humanity in a single
interconnected system- Zhores Aleksandrovich Medvedev.”
- • The biology of oxygen including lung function in health and disease, cellular respiration, oxygen radical toxicity mechanisms and defenses with medical applications for mechanisms of toxicity of chemicals, radiation, and infectious, inflammatory and immune diseases including asthma, degenerative brain disorders, convulsions, and for deep water diving, exercise physiology, and hyperbaric therapy, as examples.
- • Pathogenic, allergic, and immunologic mechanisms of bacterial, viral and fungal diseases and mechanisms of action of antibiotics and other ethical drugs.
- • Toxicology of acute and chronically-acting chemicals including their effects on humans, other animals, and broadly in the environment.
Principal Research Areas: The Life Sciences, specifically: Microbiology, Toxicology and Biochemistry. My principal research areas are: oxygen free radicals, including cellular sites and biochemical mechanisms of oxidant-stress damage; mechanisms of adaptation to extreme environments and exercise stress; toxicity of and defenses (including superoxide dismutase) against oxygen, free radicals and redox-active chemicals including xenobiotics, herbicides, pesticides and pharmaceuticals; free radicals in hyperbaric oxygen-induced convulsions and degenerative brain disorders; the mechanisms of infectious diseases; and assessment, measurement and remediation of environmental pollution, especially odors.
Applications of My Research: My focus on basic research has aided understanding of: the mechanisms of action of drugs and other chemicals; cellular respiration; exercise physiology; oxygen therapy; asthma; deep-water diving; infectious and inflammatory processes; oxidant-stress mechanisms and defenses; poisoning by environmental chemicals; measurement of odor and other environmental pollutants; cardiac re-perfusion injury and plaque formation; aging; traumatic, inflammatory and degenerative brain disorders (Parkinson’s and Huntington’s diseases); and hyperbaric oxygen poisoning, especially convulsions and newborn eye and lung toxicity [Book published in 2017: Oxygen, the Breath of Life: Boon and Bane in Human Health, Disease, and Therapy ISBN 978-1-68108-426-8.]
Most Significant Research Accomplishments: Scientists under my direction have:
- • Discovered that specific enzymes including dihydroxyacid dehydratase and asparagine synthetase (of branched-chain amino acid and asparagine biosynthesis, respectively), protein A of the quinolinate synthetase complex, 3-hydroxyanthranilate oxidase and indole amine oxidase (superoxygenase), and kynurenine hydroxylase of NAD biosynthesis and the kynurenine pathway are highly oxidant-sensitive while most enzymes are not (comparatively) sensitive to oxygen, and published mechanistic studies of several enzymes in these pathways that are target sites of herbicides including Roundup.
- • Discovered that oxidant stress induces expression of genetic stringency in sensitive bacteria; that nitrofurans and other redox-active compounds kill human malarial parasites in vitro.
- • Discovered that carbon dioxide (CO2) deprivation is lethal for various microbes and contributed to understanding the metabolic role of CO2 at the cellular level.
- • Developed (with others) the thesis that control of the concentration, chelation and oxidation states of iron in cells is a fundamental defense against oxidant-stress.
- • Devised a test to measure the oxidant-stress capability of drugs and environmental and food chemicals.
- • Developed the theory that convulsions from hyperbaric oxygen, and certain degenerative brain pathologies, are caused by specific disturbances in the kynurenine pathway that generate excess amounts of quinolinate, an NMDA receptor agonist and excitotoxin.
- • With Babu V. Bassa published evidence that the abundance of leucine in proteins helps to explain why leucine is exceptionally useful, compared to other branched-chain amino acids, in restoring exercise-induced loss of muscle protein and in containing involuntary loss of muscle mass in cancer.
- • Devised and applied techniques to assess odor from lagoons and other environmental sources and initiated research into methods of odor bioremediation.

As of January 17, 2012, Harzing (who provides a down-loadable program for calculating the impact of a scientist’s body of publications) listed 76 papers for me with an h-index of 14 based on 807 citations of my papers by other authors (this means that I have 14 papers that were cited 14 or more times each). The highest cited papers were cited: 166 times, 84 times, 58 times, 49 times, 37 times, two were cited 29 times, 26 times, 23 times, 22 times, 18 times, 16 times, 15 times, 14 times, 13 times, two were cited 12 times, three were cited 11 times, and other papers were cited a lesser numbers of times.
As of August 7, 2015, my score on Research Gate was 31.33 which is higher than 90% of Research Gate members. Research Gate is an on-line service, founded in 2008 by to physicians and a computer scientist. It now has more than 7 million members and their mission is to connect and make it easier for them to share and to access scientific output, knowledge, and expertise to advance scientific research. They self-describe Research Gate score as a new way to measure scientific reputation. The Research Gate score is based on publications by the individual scientist and how other scientists interact with that science content on Research Gate.
I have published peer reviewed papers in Science, Nature, and the Journal of Biochemistry; each has a highly-ranked impact factor (officially determined assessment of value to scientists). The 2015 impact factor for Nature was 41.456, which ranked number one of 56 in the category, Multidisciplinary Sciences; Science had an impact factor of 33.611; and the Journal of Biochemistry, 4.573.
