186. Dr. Tommy Wood: Tools to Keep Your Brain Healthy and Avoid Dementia
Tommy Wood makes his third appearance on Paul’s podcast to cover a wide range of topics. Tommy is a developmental neuroscientist and professor of pediatrics and neuroscience at University of Washington. In today’s podcast, Paul and Tommy chat about overall brain health and dementia, lipids, LDL, continuous glucose monitors, and seed oils.
A note from Paul: Throughout my training and practice as a physician I have come to one very disappointing conclusion: Western medicine isn’t helping people lead better lives. Now that I’ve realized this, I’ve become obsessed with understanding what makes us healthy or ill. I want to live the best life I can and I want to be able to share this knowledge with others so that they can do the same. This podcast is the result of my relentless search to understand the roots of chronic disease. If you want to know how to live the most radical life possible I hope you’ll join me on this journey.
