Each year the US healthcare system spends billions of dollars on pharmaceuticals and innovations, yet our citizens continue to get sicker and sicker.

Meanwhile, our government works hand in hand with food companies to market and promote the very foods that exacerbate inflammatory and chronic illnesses.

I found this show a few weeks ago, been listening. I like how you go into studies and doctors, people that are usually professionals, but a lot of the things in this ep is wrong, well at least biased. The expert in this case doesn't actually seem to know how some of the things work. like radiation isn't cumulative, radiation also in therapy also little his and interaction with the cancer cells if set right, if not yes it can cause issues. in fact that have mri's have caused radiation poisoning, but sometime things aren't as black and white as he puts it

Health and fitness are essential components https://www.cambiati.com/energy-sleep-hydration-skin-fat-loss/ of overall well-being. Health refers to the physical, mental, and social well-being of an individual, while fitness refers to the ability to perform physical activities and tasks with ease and efficiency. Both health and fitness are critical for maintaining a healthy lifestyle and preventing chronic diseases. Physical health is often the first thing that comes to mind when people think about health. It encompasses factors such as diet, exercise, sleep, and avoiding harmful behaviors such as smoking or excessive alcohol consumption. Mental health, however, is just as important as physical health. Good mental health means that an individual can manage their emotions, think clearly, and cope with stress effectively. Social health is also essential as it relates to the quality of relationships an individual has with friends, family, and their community.

There were no people of colour in this survey. At that point, I switched off. Sure, demographics change, but your methodology should have the flexibility to accommodate this. I really like this podcast otherwise.

The Diet of Common Sense Podcast

Our minds are powerful computers, and yet they say we only use 10% of our brain. The brain uses 20% of the body's energy, and in order to keep it healthy we need to eat more brain superfoods such as omega 3 fatty acids, greeny leaves, avocado, blueberries. Hydration is also important, studies suggests that even mild dehydration can affect our cognitive performance.

Thank you so much for such valuable knowledge. I've spent so much money at the dermatologist. I tried 2 different kinds of pills & two different types of face creams he prescribed. None of it worked. In fact, it worsened my acne. I have tried it all! I have prayed, used Tea Tree oil, Proactive, microdermabrasion, ate more salmon & walnuts, lifted weights, did cardio, slept more, took the hair skin & nail vitamins, & quit all dark sodas. It did nothing. This show has given me a new sense of hope! Thank you so much!
