187. Meat vs. plants for longevity
In today’s episode, Paul addresses longevity in terms of how his views differ from those in the longevity community that promote eating less meat and more vegetables. He touches on mTOR, leucine, methionine, and glycine, and ultimately answers the question of: Will an animal-based diet improve our vitality, but decrease our longevity?
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.
