Prostate Cancer and Diet

Season 8, Ep. 8

This week on the radio, we discuss a study looking at prostate cancer progression and a plant based diet. No surprise, the plan based diet slowed down the cancer growth. We fully endorse a plant based diet for overall health and wellness.


Check out our latest webinar series replay where we discussed nutrition, FODMAP diet and intestinal gas, and the intestinal microbiome.


The American Heart Association posted an excellent page on the 8 Essentials of Health. Simple and straight forward, following these guidelines will result in better health.

  • 4. Dads that Cook

    27:16
    In this episode, we introduce you to Michael Varieur. He is a father of three young children and takes cooking for his family quite seriously. Mike is a tinkerer in the kitchen, experimenting with new techniques always trying to figure out a new and better way to prepare food. While he admits that he is not perfect in the meals he prepares, meaning that some of them are not the most nutritious, he is Willing to experiment and strive to make a better meal from scratch. I highlight my Mike because from my vantage point in the clinic, listening to patients with chronic disease all day long, the vast majority of them do not feel very comfortable cooking and experimenting in the kitchen. There is a certain level of dependency on processed foods, drive through, and lackluster meals made at home. There isn't much excitement these days in the kitchen or around the kitchen table. This situation needs to change if we are going to rescue the health and wellness of our children and combat the chronic disease that millions upon millions of Americans face.Where to find Dr. Joe Galati and his team:Dr. Galati's newsletter sign-upMedical Practice: Liver Specialists of TexasDr. Galati's Book Site: Eating Yourself SickFacebook: Dr. Joe GalatiDr. Galati's YouTube ChannelPlease send feedback and suggestion. You can message me here.
  • 3. Bagel Nutrition-Part 2

    52:54
    This is Part 2 of our discussion on the nutrition of the bagel. While we may be spending far too much time on the topic (how much can you really talk about the bagel?), I do think it is worthwhile to drive home the point that the "Better Bagel" on its own will not improve your health. From a consumer standpoint, you are led to believe that a product such as this, allegedly, lower in carbohydrates, high in fiber, and lower in calorie, is the proverbial "cure all" to your ills. As we stayed in the discussion, New York City, the quintessential capital of the bagel, is one of the thinnest cities in America. How could this be if their per capita intake of bagels leads the nation? It is not the bagel that is making America obese. It is a lifestyle of inactivity, consumption of processed foods, and a general disregard for one's own health and wellness. And so while there is nothing inherently toxic about this Better Bagel product that we're discussing, we all need to think long and hard about our own fate, and what lifestyle choices we need to make.#bagelnutrition#betterbagel#talkradio#obesityWhere to find Dr. Joe Galati and his team:Dr. Galati's newsletter sign-upMedical Practice: Liver Specialists of TexasDr. Galati's Book Site: Eating Yourself SickFacebook: Dr. Joe GalatiDr. Galati's YouTube ChannelPlease send feedback and suggestion. You can message me here.

  • 1. Increased Alcohol Abuse

    26:27
    Dr. Joe Galati last week was on the radio with Frank Morano on THE OTHER SIDE OF MIDNIGHT. The show airs every evening between 1:00-5:00 a.m. EST on 77-WABC out of New York. Dr. Galati was discussing new data from the CDC on increased deaths from alcohol over the past few years.A new study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention revealing a significant increase in alcohol-related deaths in the United States, with nearly 500 Americans dying each day in 2021. The spike began during the Covid pandemic and continued to rise after lockdowns in 2020. The study highlights a higher death rate among men but a quicker increase among women. Factors contributing to the surge include pandemic stress and increased availability of alcohol through home-delivery services. Binge drinking is also on the rise, particularly among middle-aged adults. Policy suggestions to address this issue include increasing alcohol prices through taxes, limiting sales, and promoting counseling. Additionally, new research is linking alcohol use even in moderation to harmful effects on health, debunking previous beliefs about the health benefits of alcohol, including red wine.Links to alcohol related sites:Frank Morano Podcast Increase Deaths from Alcohol Excess Alcohol Use Binge DrinkingAlcohol Related Death Impact Drinking GuidelinesWhere to find Dr. Joe Galati and his team:Dr. Galati's newsletter sign-upMedical Practice: Liver Specialists of TexasDr. Galati's Book Site: Eating Yourself SickFacebook: Dr. Joe GalatiDr. Galati's YouTube ChannelPlease send feedback and suggestion. You can message me here.

  • 9. Fatty Liver and Heart Disease

    37:47
    Over the past several weeks, we have been highlighting the connection between fatty liver and heart disease. This is a topic that we feel is not receiving enough discussion. The majority of individuals with fatty liver suffer from a constellation of disorders which is called metabolic syndrome. Within metabolic syndrome, patients have truncal obesity, high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, and high cholesterol or triglycerides. This particular risk profile put you at high risk for the development of fatty liver but also for serious heart disease.Patients with fatty liver have a far more aggressive form of heart disease, with the increased risk of fatal complications in the event of a heart attack. In many cases, both the patient and primary care physicians underestimate the cardiovascular risk associated with fatty liver disease and unfortunately ignore these risk factors.This past week’s episode of Your Health First highlighted this discussion. We had Dr. Mazen Noureddin, an expert in fatty liver and fatty liver research, as well as Dr. Randeep Suneja, and acclaimed cardiologist here in Houston. Together they outlined the nature of the public health risk, and steps to take to combat it.Where to find Dr. Joe Galati and his team:Dr. Galati's newsletter sign-upMedical Practice: Liver Specialists of TexasDr. Galati's Book Site: Eating Yourself SickFacebook: Dr. Joe GalatiDr. Galati's YouTube ChannelPlease send feedback and suggestion. You can message me here.
