How Climate Change Is Making Us Sick And What We Can Do About It with Amanda Ravenhill

Ep. 537

This episode is brought to you by Rupa Health, InsideTracker, and Mitopure.


I recently took a life changing trip to Antarctica to see what is really happening to our environment as the result of climate change. Before you roll your eyes or gloss over this episode, I want you to understand this: Climate change is not just floods, droughts, a hotter planet, and deadly weather events, which are all scary enough to think about. It affects our whole body health—impacting chronic disease, infectious diseases, our food supply, our mental health, and so much more. 


On my way to Antarctica, I had an important conversation with my friend Amanda Ravenhill about one of the most critical aspects of climate change and human health—our food system. We also dive into why apathy around climate change is so dangerous. 


Amanda is an active member of the international community focused on addressing imminent global challenges. She is the Co-Founder and Founding Executive Director of Project Drawdown, the most comprehensive plan ever proposed to reverse global warming.

Daily Steps To Prevent Heart Disease

Ep. 558
This episode is brought to you by Gut Food, ButcherBox, and Paleovalley.Heart disease is the number-one killer in the world, and it is often thought of as a cholesterol problem. When you take a closer look, however, there are other factors that drive this chronic disease that can’t be fixed by the most commonly prescribed medication: statin drugs. The way you eat, how much you exercise, how you manage stress, and more all contribute to heart disease. In this episode, I talk with Dr. Aseem Malhotra, Dr. Stanley Hazen, and Dr. Cindy Geyer about why heart disease is easier to prevent than to reverse, why statins are not the answer in most cases, and how the gut microbiome is connected to heart health.Dr. Aseem Malhotra is an NHS-trained consultant, cardiologist, and visiting professor of Evidence-Based Medicine at the Bahiana School of Medicine and Public Health in Salvador, Brazil. He is a pioneer of the lifestyle medicine movement in the UK and in 2018 was ranked by software company Onalytica as the number-one doctor in the world influencing obesity thinking. He is the author of, The Pioppi Diet, coauthored with Donal O'Neill, The 21-Day Immunity Plan, and, A Statin-Free Life.Dr. Stanley Hazen is both the chair of the Department of Cellular & Molecular Medicine at the Lerner Research Institute and section head of Preventive Cardiology & Rehabilitation at the Heart and Vascular Institute of the Cleveland Clinic. He’s published more than 400 peer-reviewed articles and has over 50 patents from his pioneering discoveries in atherosclerosis and inflammatory disease. Dr. Hazen made the seminal discovery linking microbial pathways to the pathogenesis of cardiovascular disease.Dr. Cindy Geyer received her Bachelor of Science and her Doctor of Medicine degrees, with honors, from the Ohio State University. She completed her residency in internal medicine at Strong Memorial Hospital in Rochester, NY, and is triple board certified in internal medicine, integrative medicine, and lifestyle medicine.
