60,000 miles long. That’s the length of the tube system inside us that transports blood, oxygen, and nutrients to the cells in our body.  If these tubes fail, the result can be fatal. In some cases, it’s a heart attack. In others, it’s a stroke, where the blood supply to the brain is disrupted, and brain cells are damaged or killed.  Heart attacks and strokes are a major cause of death in developed countries - but we can take action to reduce the risks.  In this episode, Jonathan speaks to a world-renowned physician, scientist, and speaker to gain insights into how looking after this magical pipework could slow down aging.  https://drwilliamli.com (Dr. William Li) is a world-leading specialist in blood vessels and preventative health and the author of countless papers on the topic, who possesses the gift for communicating this complex subject in terms we can all understand.

Most of us are familiar with the unpleasant feeling of being bloated. It can happen after eating specific foods or when you experience slower bowel movements. Sometimes, it can be a symptom of an underlying health condition.  To take a closer look at issues related to gas and bloating, we’ve invited a special guest this week: superstar gastroenterologist and Zoe’s US Medical Director Will Bulsiewicz. In today’s short episode of ZOE Science & Nutrition, Jonathan and Will ask: what are the main causes of gas bloating and how do we stop it?

Our planet is overheating. Human society is creating too much carbon dioxide, stopping the sun’s warmth from escaping back into space. As earth gets hotter, its ice caps are melting, causing sea levels to rise, and submerging entire communities. Floods, droughts, and wildfires are already becoming much more common. Some effects of climate change are now irreversible, but there is still hope, and adjusting what we eat might play a bigger part than you’d imagine. In this episode, Jonathan speaks with a pioneer in science who will help you understand how your eating habits affect the planet, so you can make informed decisions about the foods you eat and how you prepare them. http://sarahbridle.net (Sarah Bridle) is a professor of food climate and society at the University of York in the United Kingdom.

Cholesterol in our food has a bad reputation. Many of us think of it as something to try to cut it out of our diet completely.  Yet new research could redeem eggs and other cholesterol-rich foods.  In today’s short episode of ZOE Science and Nutrition, Jonathan and Sarah ask: what happens when you eat high cholesterol foods?  Follow ZOE on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/zoe/ (https://www.instagram.com/zoe/) If you want to uncover the right foods for your body, head to joinzoe.com/podcast and get 10% off your personalised nutrition program.

In today’s world, we increasingly live our lives late into the night. Whether it's work obligations, socializing, or being glued to a screen, we ignore the sun's rise and fall.  But most of us are unaware that a clock is ticking away inside us.  It uses light to keep time and tells us when to sleep and eat. Should we listen? Or is this biological clock simply a relic from a past time? In today’s episode, Jonathan speaks to a leading authority to unravel the latest science that reveals that this body clock, or circadian rhythm, has a dramatic impact on our health, weight, and mental wellbeing: https://www.ndcn.ox.ac.uk/team/russell-foster (Russell Foster) is an Oxford University scientist who has dedicated his life to studying circadian rhythms.

Artificial sweeteners are everywhere. Not only in diet soft drinks but in many foods that you wouldn’t expect. You’ve probably eaten some today without realising. Sweeteners have been around for over a hundred years yet remain the subject of much debate. It's hard to know how they stack up next to the alternatives. In today’s short episode of ZOE Science & Nutrition, Jonathan and Sarah ask: are artificial sweeteners worse than sugar?

Kanchan Koya grew up in a house filled with wonderful fragrances from the spices simmering on her grandmother’s stove. In India, it was a common belief that spices were more than just pleasant tastes. Ancient wisdom said they had medicinal properties, and it was common for household medicine cabinets to store dried spices, not pills. Kanchan grew up to become a molecular biologist, studying in the US at Harvard Medical School. When her lab began to investigate turmeric’s healing properties, the ancient wisdom from her childhood met the scientific inquiry of her adult life - beginning a lifelong obsession with the health benefits of spice.    In today’s episode, Kanchan and regular guest Tim Spector help us understand whether there is any scientific evidence to support the health benefits of spices, the easiest way to add spice to our diet, and which ones to choose. https://www.spicespicebaby.com/about/ (Kanchan Koya) is the founder of SpiceSpiceBaby and The Radical Vitality Podcast with a Ph.D. in Biomedicine from Harvard University and training from the Institute of Integrative Nutrition. https://www.tim-spector.co.uk (Tim Spector) is a co-founder at ZOE and one of the top 100 most cited scientists in the world.

Vegan diets are increasingly popular. As more of us reduce our animal product consumption, countless new meat and dairy alternatives appear on our supermarket shelves. Manufacturers market these products as healthy options (unsurprisingly), but perhaps we shouldn’t be so quick to trust them…  In today’s short episode of ZOE Science & Nutrition, Jonathan and Sarah ask: are meat and dairy alternatives healthier than their animal-based counterparts?

We’ve all felt the effects of food on our mood, so it would stand to reason that dietary intervention for mental health would be well studied and a regularly deployed treatment.  But this is far from reality, as historically, psychiatry was only concerned with what happened from the neck up. In today’s episode, Jonathan is joined by https://foodandmoodcentre.com.au/team/felice-jacka/ (Felice Jacka), Professor of Nutritional Psychiatry and Director of the Food & Mood Centre at Deakin University. Felice was the driving force behind the landmark study to determine if dietary intervention could help treat the symptoms of moderate to severe depression.  With her help, we dive into what the science suggests regarding the relationship between food and our mental health and what foods we can eat to improve it.  If you want to uncover the right foods for your body, head to http://joinzoe.com/podcast (joinzoe.com/podcast) and get 10% off your personalized nutrition program.

A recent study claims that eating a hotdog reduces life expectancy by 38 minutes, and eating salmon could extend it by 70 minutes. At face value, this data implies you can eat your way to immortality. Taken with a pinch of salt, it suggests you can offset the harm from poor dietary choices. But does food really work this way?

Biochemist Jessie Inchauspe heads into work one morning at a genetics lab in California. During the morning meeting, management offer staff the chance to self-test a new medical device. Jessie accepts.  She couldn’t have known this device would take her on a journey of discovery to reshape her health and help countless others do the same.   The device was a continuous blood sugar monitor, and it was this, combined with her academic background, and a remarkable willingness to use herself as a lab rat, that began a journey of discovery into how blood sugar affects our health.  In today’s episode, Jonathan is joined by two leading experts on the topic: https://www.glucosegoddess.com/ (Jessie Inchauspe) is a biochemist, bestselling author, and founder of the Glucose Goddess movement who’s helped hundreds of thousands of people improve their health by making cutting-edge science accessible. https://www.kcl.ac.uk/people/sarah-berry (Dr. Sarah Berry) is one of the world's leading experts on human nutrition, who has personally run over 20 randomized clinical trials looking at how humans respond to different fats.

If you're confused about the health effects of fats, you are not alone. You've probably read the headlines - fats are killing us! Then found claims they’re actually healthy in the same publication the following week. Saturated fats have been touted as the worst of all.  While there’s ambiguity around other fat sources, saturated fats are universally demonized. But are they really the super villain we've been led to believe?   Find out in this week’s episode.  Follow ZOE on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/zoe/ (https://www.instagram.com/zoe/) If you want to uncover the right foods for your body, head to https://joinzoe.com/podcast (joinzoe.com/podcast ) and get 10% off your personalised nutrition program.

Keto has been promoted as a magic bullet for weight loss by its supporters and slammed as dangerous by its opponents. It's no surprise - completely removing almost all carbohydrates is not what most people consider ‘a balanced diet’. With carbs off the table, Keto diets involve a dramatically increased fat intake. At the same time, drastically reducing carbs means starving our gut microbes of the fiber that feeds them.  Nonetheless, doctors prescribe keto diets to treat people with severe diabetes and see dramatic improvements, and many healthy people swear by keto for weight loss. On top of this, removing carbohydrates prevents blood sugar spikes and crashes linked to inflammation and disease.  In today’s episode, Jonathan speaks to a leading nutritional researcher to understand whether or not keto diets are a crazy fad: https://profiles.stanford.edu/christopher-gardner (Christopher Gardner) is a professor at Stanford University and a member of ZOE’s scientific advisory board who’s produced a clinical trial of keto diets, published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.

From blueberries to salmon, kale to acai, it seems like anything and everything can be classed as a superfood these days. Supposedly they can prevent cancer, reduce inflammation, and even help you live longer… In today’s short episode of ZOE Science and Nutrition, Jonathan and Sarah look at the history of superfoods and ask: are some foods really more ‘super’ than others? Or is this just another marketing ploy?

It’s a biological process that we need to stay alive. Yet too much of it leads to disease and a shorter life.  Inflammation is the immune system’s response to an outside event it thinks is dangerous. This stimulus could be an injury, like falling off your bike or an infection by a virus or bacteria. But inflammation can also be triggered by our food in the hours after we eat.  But if this natural process is required to protect us from infections and injuries, why is inflammation usually cast in a negative light?

Can bread be healthy?

Can bread be healthy?

2022-05-2638:294

It’s no exaggeration to say that bread shaped modern humanity - it was the cultivation of wheat for flour that transformed our ancestors from hunter-gatherers to city dwellers.  Today, millions of us start the day with a slice of toast, and most lunches in the US and UK are wrapped in a slice of bread or a burger bun as a cheap, flexible, and delicious energy source. But modern industrial processes designed to reduce the time and cost of baking mean today’s bread would be unrecognizable to our ancestors.   Today’s bread tastes good but has lost most of its nutritional content. With most of its fiber gone, and no time for bacteria to work its fermenting magic, bread has become a simple starch, rapidly turned into sugar in our blood and offering little to support our gut bacteria. For this reason, bread is increasingly demonized as an evil carb. In today’s episode, Jonathan speaks to two authorities on the subject to ask: Can bread can ever be healthy? https://www.sourdough.co.uk (Vanessa Kimbe)l is an author, founder of the sourdough school, and a specialist in bread nutrition and digestibility. https://www.tim-spector.co.uk (Tim Spector) is a co-founder at ZOE and one of the top 100 most cited scientists in the world.

Is Coffee Healthy?

Is Coffee Healthy?

2022-05-1248:095

Coffee’s earliest consumption dates back millennia when the tribesmen of Ethiopia used its ground-up berries to help aid concentration during prayer.  Arriving in Europe in the 17th century, Coffee quickly began to replace beer and wine as a favourite breakfast drink.  In the 20th century, coffee was blamed for high blood pressure and heart attacks, and more recently linked to a rising epidemic of poor sleep.  None of this has prevented coffee’s relentless rise. Over 2 billion cups of the stuff are drunk each day.  So, is coffee a guilty treat as many of us suspect? Or is it a health drink feeding your good gut bacteria?  In this episode, Jonathan speaks with James Hoffmann and Tim Spector to find out. They discuss how coffee affects your gut bacteria, your hormones and your heart, whether decaffeinated coffee is healthy, and discover some of coffee’s most surprising side effects – which could come in handy if you find yourself in the jungle. https://www.jameshoffmann.co.uk (James Hoffmann) is a  leading coffee expert and author of the World Atlas of Coffee and  co-founder & chairman of the Square Mile Coffee Roasters. https://www.tim-spector.co.uk (Tim Spector)  is a co-founder at ZOE and one of the top 100 most cited scientists in the world.

Interesting podcast but the study was only done on middle-aged men which I was disappointed to hear near the end of the episode. Maybe clarify that "men" will benefit from this and not "people" before the study has been done on "people". For example, the keto diet has been show not to work very well for women, so please do not make broad statements without the science to back it up!

So, what exactly is the current thinking on butter? Sarah says ignore the labels on cheese. Do we ignore the ones on butter too?

You are giving completely the wrong message about highly processed, toxic oils as they are sold to us in supermarkets such as corn, sunflower, canola/rapeseed, soybean, safflower and vegetable oils... I don't mean cold-pressed, organic oils which shouldn't be heated, but there's plenty of research out there to support using butter and ghee (especially from grass-fed cows) for cooking, as well as olive oil. Please do your research! There is everything WRONG with the kind of oils that Macdonald's use, as well as their meat and cheese. You are propagating Big Food lies and confusing people.
