About
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.

243. Responding to Layne Norton on SEED OILS

This episode is my response to Layne’s video about seed oils. Due to the pervasive mainstream support for seed oils, I believe it’s extremely important to shed some light on the hidden truth behind these oils. There is a lot of conflicting evidence on seed oils out there. Looking at the totality of the evidence can be very misleading, so we must look at the details. By thoroughly breaking down each trial from Layne’s video, we can see massive flaws in the methods and designs of each study. Trans fat consumption by the control group and multifactorial interventions in the experimental group were the primary confounding variables. In this video, Paul references several studies suggesting different ways in which seed oils are harmful to humans. He always appreciate differing views and these discussions because it’s how we all learn. He has hope that a respectful debate will happen in the future so that we can dive deeper into this important subject. He strongly believe that seed oils are evolutionarily inconsistent, these are not the fats that humans have evolved on. In fact, we have evolved by consuming ample amounts of animal fats, rich in saturated fats. Saturated fats have been shown to lower markers of heart disease and they are an amazing source of essential vitamins like A, D3, K2, E. It's always meat / organs / fruit / honey / raw dairy. This is an ANIMAL-BASED diet, and I believe this is the most optimal diet for humans on the planet.

193. Bloodwork review: December 2022

On this week’s podcast, Paul takes you through his most recent blood work from November 2022, alongside his genetic results, as well as an abbreviated version of what he eats in a day. He talks about how his levels have changed since his previous bloodwork and, specifically, what he implemented to get his free testosterone up, and his sex-hormone binding globulin down. He clearly shows his transparent bloodwork to indicate that he has not, and does not, take any performance enhancing drugs. 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.

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.

139. Nick Bare interviews Paul: Everything you need to know about a carnivoreish/animal-based diet to attain radical health

What is a species appropriate human diet? In this week’s episode of The Fundamental Health podcast Nick Bare interviews me and we dive deep into many of my nutritional ideas that buck the norm…. Meat and organs are the best foods for humans on the planet… They don’t cause cancer, and can be raised in ways that nourish the ecosystems and the environment… Contrary to what we have been told, vegetables are not entirely benign and come with many plant defense chemicals…. For many people, eliminating vegetables (leaves, stems, roots, seeds) improves gut issues, mood, skin issues, sleep, and body composition… The least toxic part of plants are fruit, the sugars found within these in a food matrix do not cause insulin resistance/ metabolic dysfunction… Honey is sought around the world and has many benefits… For those who tolerate dairy, raw milk and cheese are also incredibly nutritious… Organs, meat, fruit, honey- this is a #carnivoreish diet aka an #animalbased diet.  Welcome to #theremembering    Time Stamps: 0:09:50 Podcast begins 0:12:00 Recounting my need for new food framework  0:21:35 Going all-in with the carnivore diet 0:23:34 The big keto fallacy 0:26:55 The value of carbohydrates in the human diet 0:34:57 Issues with long-term keto, gas, glucose, and insulin 0:41:17 My experience going raw vegan 0:42:46 How I approach fruit, honey, and the plant toxicity spectrum  0:46:39 What is fruit.. really? 0:47:22 How I structure my daily meals 0:55:05 The power of organ meats 1:07:45 Food quality and tracking calories 1:09:20 Gut health, vegetables, and plant-based diets 1:18:42 Butyrate, short chain fatty acids, and fiber 1:21:53 This diet is more than bacon, steak, and eggs 1:27:13 The importance of eating meat fat 1:38:15 Issues that I have seen patients come in with and how diet can improve those issues 1:43:30 My take on 'The Gamechangers' film 1:57:39 The first step I take with new patients 2:00:08 Linoleic acid and what type of meat I eat 2:05:00 How do I eat out? 2:11:36 Roam ranch and soil regeneration  2:13:19 Big takeaways from this episode   Sponsors: Heart & Soil: www.heartandsoil.co  White Oak Pastures: www.Whiteoakpastures.com, use code: CarnivoreMD for 10% off your first order The Cold Plunge: TheColdPlunge.com, use code CarnivoreMD for $111 off your cold plunge Joovv: www.joovv.com/paul and get an exclusive discount on the generation 3.0 devices

138. Why You Should Eat Liver

Eating meat from properly raised animals is a great start, but it’s only part of the equation. To truly obtain ALL of the nutrients you need to thrive, organs like liver, bone marrow, spleen, heart, kidney, thymus, intestines, and testicle are crucial. Muscle meat has lots of nutrition, but it doesn’t have everything.

134. Can meat be part of a "sustainable" diet?

Short answer, yes.    All conversations about sustainability must take into account the nutritional value of the foods they recommend, as well as the long term effects on ecosystems with producing those foods.   Plant foods, especially grains like corn, soy, etc. fail miserably on both of these counts.    It's time to tell it like it really is. Well-raised beef is one of the MOST sustainable foods to include in your diet and monocrop plant foods are the LEAST sustainable foods you can possibly eat,    #theremembering

133. Cholesterol on an Animal Based Diet, with Dave Feldman

If you are interested in lipids, you’ve probably heard of Dave Feldman and his work. If not,  you’ve got some homework to do, and I think you’ll be  amazed at what you find. Dave’s work can be found at cholesterolcode.com where he details his multiple, meticulous self-experimental projects. Prior to cholesterol adventures Dave was a senior software scientist and an engineer. He brings this “out of the box” thinking to the world of medicine and we are all better off for it.  He began a low-carb, high-fat diet in April 2015 and has since learned everything he could about it with special emphasis on cholesterol. He saw his own lipid numbers spike substantially after going on the diet and spotted a pattern in the lipid system that’s very similar to distributed objects in networks.  Time Stamps: 0:09:20 Podcast begins with Dave Feldman 0:09:45 Responding to the common question: "I feel so good on Animal-Based, but my cholesterol is sky high.

Controversial Thoughts: Turmeric is BS!

First principles: Plants don't want their roots, stems, leaves, and seeds (seeds, nuts, grains and legumes) to be eaten- and they've clearly evolved defense mechanisms to dissuade consumption of these parts. (Animals don't want to be eaten either but they can run away, bite, kick, etc.) Why do we assume that plant leaves like kale or plant roots like turmeric are good for us? I'm not convinced, and in this video I go deep down the turmeric rabbit hole to tell you why I think it's BS. If you want to eat a little every once in a while it's probably not a big deal, but daily consumption or mega-dosing can be potentially harmful IMO. #theremembering #animalbased

Controversial Thoughts: My Nighttime Routine

Sleep is business. Plain and simple. Other than optimizing my food, there is nothing I have found to be more beneficial to my performance every day than optimizing my sleep. This means I don't mess around with these tenets... Light on my skin and eyes and grounding (usually through surfing) first thing in the am... I don't wear sunglasses, ever. I also don't wear contacts in my eyes during the day. 10 hour feeding window, strictly adhered to. First bite of food 630am, last bite at 430pm. You know what I eat: #Animalbased Red light in the house at night, all of them. Yes I am a lizard. All devices red screens after dark (Iris, etc). Firelight if I can. No electronics 1 hour before bed. Read a book, meditate, etc.. I do not watch TV. Ever. Cool dark room, cooling pad on bed, consistent bedtime (845-915pm). What does your nighttime routine look like? #theremembering

Controversial Thoughts: Acid/Alkaline balance on an Animal Based diet

Plant-based pundits love to bloviate about the benefits of eating an "alkaline" diet, but is there any real science to support this?    Nope.    In this week's edition of Controversial Thoughts (available here and all podcast feeds as well as YouTube) I dig into the acid/alkaline balance and note how adding some fruit to a carnivore diet (= Animal Based diet, voila!) can be beneficial from a urinary pH perspective - which probably also reflects interstitial pH.    As I noted in last week's controversial thoughts, infants self-select for a balance of acidic/alkaline foods. Might be something for us to think about as adults, also.    #theremembering

Controversial Thoughts: Can Kids Eat an Animal-Based Diet?

I don't have kids and I would never tell parents how to feed their children, but I get asked this question quite a bit and thought I would offer my ideas about how I might feed my kids in the future, and how I've recommended my sister feed my niece and nephew.    The short answer to this question is that kids can absolutely eat an Animal Based diet, and that doing so will avoid SO MUCH consternation at the dinner table when parents realize they don't have to force their children to eat vegetables.    As I discuss in this video, when presented with unprocessed food children naturally select meat, organs, and fruit for the majority of their diets...   Anyone with children probably already knows this. It's not hard to get kids to eat fresh fruit, or well prepared (not burned!) hamburger, etc.. but vegetables must be hidden in other foods (like eggs), or covered in sauces like ketchup (which has a ton of sugar)...    I know there will be someone in this thread who says "my kid loves vegetables!" to which I would ask- how much have you modeled this behavior for them and how many sauces are you putting on these?   I discuss a study in this video in which 6-11 month old children had no modeling of food behaviors but were allowed to self-select and they consistently went for animal foods (including organs!) and fruit.    If you don't think there's any way your kids would eat organs, consider opening a capsule or two of one of our supplements like Beef Organs from @heartandsoilsupplements over their food or mixing with applesauce etc...    If you catch them early, kids will definitely self-select organs but once a child have moved beyond a year or so without being exposed to these it's much less likely- this is where the desiccated organs can be great!   Healthy parents- healthy kids. #theremembering

129. Is there a moral case for fossil fuels? With Alex Epstein

Alex Epstein is a philosopher who argues that “human flourishing” should be the guiding principle of industrial and environmental progress. He founded Center for Industrial Progress (CIP) in 2011 to offer a positive, pro-human alternative to the Green movement. Alex is also the author of The Moral Case for Fossil Fuels (Penguin, 2014), a New York Times bestseller arguing that if we look at the whole picture, human flourishing requires that humanity use more fossil fuels not less. The book has been widely praised as the most persuasive argument ever made for our continuing use of fossil fuels, winning Epstein the “Most Original Thinker of 2014” award from The McLaughlin Group.    Time stamps: 0:10:59 Podcast begins with Alex Epstein 0:11:39 My take on the climate story 0:15:59 What does it mean to be "good for the climate?" 0:21:49 Ideally, we want to impact climate directly as humans 0:27:44 Go to: https://industrialprogress.com/ if interested in the release of Alex Epstein's book 0:28:29 Many of the climate arguments told to us are taken out of context 0:36:59 Elon Musk says we can make Mars livable, but a 2-degree warming of Earth will make our planet un-livable  0:39:44 Predictions from 50 years ago never came true 0:47:59 The problem with the term "climate change denyer" 0:54:54 The benefits of fossil fuels 1:00:54 The problem with solar and wind power 1:07:54 The clean energy standard goals from the current administration 1:15:29 Final points with Alex Epstein: let's think about a livable planet vs. an un-impacted planet 1:18:59 Where to find more of Alex Epstein   Sponsors: Heart & Soil: www.heartandsoil.co  White Oak Pastures: www.Whiteoakpastures.com, use code: CarnivoreMD for 10% off your first order Belcampo: www.belcampo.com use code: CarnivoreMD for 20% off your order BLUblox: https://blublox.cc/ CARNIVOREMD for 15% off Lets Get Checked: 20% off your order at www.TRYLGC.com/paul

Controversial Thoughts: The Dangers of Long- term Ketogenic diets

If you saw my "What I eat in a day" video you know that I've been including fruit and honey in my diet for a while now and feel much better with these... In fact, I'm going to go so far as to say that I have a number of concerns about long-term ketosis and don't think this is a great thing for most individuals... Maybe there are a few out there who can manage this, but for most thyroid, sex-hormone, electrolyte and glucose issues develop over time with a ketogenic diet... Before you get your keto dogma panties in a bunch, watch the video - you might just learn a thing or two! And this is not to say that I don't see value in ketogenic diets for some individuals (epilepsy, parkinsons, other neuro-degenerative disorders), or to begin treating diabetes... But long-term eating in this way may have many negative consequences. Please repeat after me: carbohydrates do not cause diabetes, carbohydrates do not cause diabetes... Results over dogma. Reclaiming your birthright to radical health is what this is all about. Not getting stuck in a label of one sort or another. #theremembering

Controversial Thoughts: Can an animal based diet help with depression/anxiety?

You bet it can!    The current paradigm of mental illness focuses on neurotransmitter derangements, but these are not the root of the problem in depression/anxiety etc., they are a manifestation of underlying inflammation and metabolic dysfunction.    Yes. These imbalances underlie almost all chronic illness, yet western medicine sadly continues to focus on symptoms rather than addressing the root cause.    What is causing the metabolic dysfunction and inflammation in many mental illnesses? Find out in this week's Controversial Thoughts video.   Note:  On Rumble and podcast feeds there is a bit of extra content about schmovid I cannot post here.    #theremembering

Controversial Thoughts: Do you need to count calories on an Animal Based Diet?

This is going to piss off the calories in/calories out zealots, but I say no...   Check out this week's episode of Controversial Thoughts to hear why.   I believe that our satiety mechanisms have been hijacked, and this causes us to overeat-> obesity->metabolic dysfunction.   Blocking CB1 receptors with Rimonabant is incredibly helpful for weight loss and improve cardiometabolic parameters to a greater degree than weight loss would predict...   Linoleic acid-> 2-AG and Anandamide (AEA) which bind to CB1, these are endogenous cannabinoids that appear to be overproduced when we eat seed oils...    Is everything starting to become clear now?    By eating an #AnimalBased diet (meat/organs, least toxic plant foods), you'll be avoiding seed oils and processed sugars that hijack your satiety = no real need to count calories and freedom from calorie counting prison.   Don't believe me?

123. Ending the debate over seed oils, with Tucker Goodrich

Tucker Goodrich is a technology executive in the financial industry who designs, runs, and debugs complex systems in high-risk environments. Areas of expertise include risk management, systems management, and cyber-security. After experiencing some personal health crises and realizing that the ‘solutions’ offered by medical professionals weren’t working or addressing causation he started applying the same approach in research and evaluation of data to his own health issues to determine root causes.

Controversial Thoughts: Why the ancient Egyptians really got fat and sick

Was it carbs? Aliens? Or something else...   I love these historical detective stories!    Looking back at what we know of the last 5 thousand years, the ancient Egyptians appear to have suffered from many of the chronic diseases we see today, yet they didn't have processed foods like donuts, cakes, cookies, or twinkies...   Most everyone agrees that processed food is at the root of our chronic disease pandemic (yes, the really important one and biggest pandemic we currently suffer), but what is it about these processed foods that makes them so bad?    Is it that they cause us to overeat? Partially, yes- stay tuned for next week's Controversial Thoughts for more on this!   Is it something they contain that appears to be bad for us?    I believe the answer to the second question is yes, and it's not carbohydrates per se.    What is it? Our old nemesis seed oils again, perhaps?    Did the ancient Egyptians eat seed oils?? Could this have been what gave them manboobs and obesity?    Find out in this week's video!   #theremembering

Controversial Thoughts: Is Carnivore MD an Omnivore?

The debate between plant-based and animal-based eating was over 2 million years ago with the extinction of Paranthropus robustus...   Hear this story and a bit of mine in this week's edition of Controversial Thoughts, my Friday rant/monologue podcast on Fundamental Health.   The simple takeaway here is that 75% of omnivorous species lean heavily toward either plant or animal consumption as the majority of their diet.    I would argue that humans are not omnivore generalists but specialist omnivores adapted to eat an #animalbased diet...   Meat and organs have been at the center of evolution as Hominids for over 2 million years...   Eating meat and organs made us human!    And if you ask the Hadza what their favorite food is, they will tell you "Meat" in a split second! Their entire existence revolves around hunting...   So yes, CarnivoreMD is a proud #animal-based omnivore who hails from a long lineage of humans who have lived and died by their ability to hunt and eat animal foods above all other sources of food.    #theremembering

Controversial Thoughts: Is Fructose something to fear?

I ate bananas with my steak and liver after I filmed this! Lots of people love to hate on fructose, but is this molecule really harmful for humans when found in fruit and honey? You know, foods that we've been eating for millions of years and foods that the Hadza and other hunter/gatherer groups around the world LOVE and seek out? Find out in this week's episode of Controversial Thoughts! Cleansed of all controversial CX V i D related talk for the instagram droid's pleasure. Take home: There's zero evidence that fructose in honey and fruit is harmful for humans. If you feel better on a diet without them, more power to you. But if you are one of the many individuals who benefit (electrolytes, energy, sleep, libido, etc.) from including carbohydrates in your diet, I say eat them from the least toxic plant foods!

Controversial Thoughts: How to build your tribe in 2021

Harvard did a 75 year study of men looking at factors correlating with health. What was the greatest predictor? Community! The first ever #animalbased gathering just wrapped up here in Costa Rica, and I couldn't NOT talk about it in this week's edition of Controversial Thoughts! It would be a huge understatement to say that the gathering was a success, it was simply incredible. Having nearly 100 people here in Costa Rica from all over the world who are interested in #theremembering of where we have come from as humans... We surfed, ate meat and liver, drank coconuts, swam in the ocean, jumped off of waterfalls, sailed, saw whales, hiked, explored, danced, and watched amazing sunsets. There will be another one for sure- next year, likely in February. We are building the #animalbased tribe in a big way!

118. Will eating too much meat harm your kidneys?

This one is easy, the answer is no!    In this week's controversial thoughts video I break this down and provide multiple interventional studies that corroborate my position.   Diets up to 3.3g/kg have been studied and do not show any adverse events on kidney function. Why would they?    We know from the anthropology literature that hunter-gatherer groups like the Hadza (who I visited earlier this year) and the !kung San often eat up to 4.5 lbs of meat per day when a large game animal has been successfully hunted.    Curious about an #animalbased diet? Join us this August @heartandsoilsupplements for our next #AnimalBased30, a 30 day challenge to eat an #animalbased diet and kick lots of ass. Take the pledge at www.animalbased30.com.    PS this video also contains a study about the utility of vaccination in those previously infected with COVID.    #theremembering

Controversial Thoughts: What I think about mushrooms, olive oil, and avocado oil

Both plants and fungi are stuck in the ground and can't move and both have developed defense chemicals to protect themselves from predation. 99.5% of animals are edible Only 20-30% of plants are edible And only 20-30% of mushrooms are edible Listen to the video for more detailed information here but this is the take-away: mushrooms are survival food and I'm not convinced they have unique benefits we can't get from meat, organs, or other less toxic plant foods. Olive oil: tallow is better and most is rancid/tainted Same is true for Avocado oil. Tallow is better and contains uniquely valuable nutrients like stearic acid, fat soluble vitamins, and odd chain fatty acids.

Controversial Thoughts: Do plants really contain toxic chemicals?

Do plants really contain toxic chemicals? Short answer: Yes. If you want a more in depth discussion check out this week's version of Controversial Thoughts as I attempt yet again to appease the gods of social media by pausing the extremely controversial conversations about #chocolate cake and censorship. Here's the deal. For 450 million years or so animals and plants have been at war. Herbivorous animals want to eat plants, plants must evolve spikes, hard shells, and defense chemicals if they want to survive and pass on their DNA. Simple as that. Plants are FULL of defense chemicals. Herbivorous animals have evolved many ways to deal with these, animal-based omnivores like humans possibly have not... Not all vegetables will kill you dead instantly when you eat them, but why eat survival food when you can eat organs, meat, and the less toxic parts of plants like fruit?? I break it all down in this video! #theremembering

114. If our words can be censored are we really free?

In this week's episode of Controversial Thoughts I wanted to rant a bit about freedom and censorship as we approach July 4th. According to Dr. Fauci, we can do whatever we want on the 4th of July if we are vaccinated, but does that mean we can talk about potential downsides of the vaccine? What about ivermectin? How about diet and nutrition and the role metabolic health plays in the course of COVID? Don't think so. Speaking too loudly about those things will get you censored on many platforms like Instagram, Facebook, and YouTube (props to Twitter for allowing much of this dialogue to happen). Who writes the community guidelines, anyway? And more importantly, who will write our history? Zuckerberg? Big pharma? I pray not! #theremembering

Controversial Thoughts: Why you might NOT want to use toothpaste and mouthwash!

The last time I did a video about toothpaste it got censored! Damn big toothpaste ruining the party... JK... I think that video was taken down because I talked about #chocolatecake too much in it, so I'll leave that out of this one. If you want all of my uncensored opinion, sign up for my controversial newsletter at heartandsoil.co I have many concerns about toothpaste, but the biggest are antibacterial compounds that disrupt the nitrate producing oral microbiome and fluoride.

Controversial Thoughts: How Almond milk is harming you and your kids!

Almond milk seems to be all the rage right now, but is this stuff really something we should be consuming or feeding to our children? Heck no! In this week's episode of Controversial Thoughts (the Friday installment of my podcast, Fundamental Health), I talk about the multiple reasons why nut milks are horrendous... Carrageenan (worsens diabetes?!) and oxalates are the two big issues I cover in this video, but there are many reasons to leave seeds (seeds, nuts, grain, legumes are all seeds!) out of your diet and go #AnimalBased." Notably, I don't even go into the fact that Almonds use a HUGE amount of water and are an abysmal way for us to use this resource in farming... And no, cows don't use a ton of water- those stats you've heard don't account for the rainwater that would have fallen on the land anyway. This is a post for another day! Leave out seeds, and leafy greens. Focus on animal organs and meat (@heartandsoilsupplements) and the least toxic plant foods, and thrive! #theremembering

Georges St-Pierre is a Canadian former professional mixed martial artist. He is widely regarded as one of the greatest fighters in MMA history. GSP was a two-division champion in the UFC, having won titles in the welterweight and middleweight divisions.

Controversial Thoughts: How broccoli could be bad for you

What if vegetables aren’t good for you, after all?   What if that spinach is causing your joint pain?   What if that kale is causing your stomach issues?   What if that broccoli is messing up your digestion and your thyroid?    If you think about things from the perspective of plants, the idea of plant toxicity makes much more sense.   Plants don’t want to be eaten, but they can’t run away like animals. This makes them very vulnerable to predation- thus, they have had to develop many defense chemicals.   In this week’s episode of Controversial Thoughts I discuss how broccoli might just be bad for you and how I think we’ve gone wrong in our thinking about vegetables...   I’d you’re new to the idea of #animalbased diets this video is for you!   #theremembering

107. Is there a way to reverse male (and female) hair loss? With Robert English

Rob English is a medical editor who specializes in hair loss disorders. He sits on the editorial board of Dermatology and Therapy, and he's the founder of perfecthairhealth.com – a website dedicated to showcasing evidence-based protocols for hair regrowth, with or without drugs. His fascination with hair loss began in 2007 – right after he was diagnosed with androgenic alopecia. Today, he spends his time managing a small team of researchers and teaching other hair loss sufferers how to avoid his treatment mistakes. By employing an approach that prioritizes education over product purchases and one-on-one support over "one-size-fits-all" solutions, he has helped thousands of men and women improve their hair loss – and on their terms (most often without drugs).

I felt compelled this week to share my "why," why I do what I do. This one is heartfelt. Hope you all enjoy it!   Simply put, the mainstream medical paradigm is inadequate and this leads millions to suffer unnecessarily. I've seen this in my life, my family, and my friends and it's something I want to be a part of changing.    Why have we accepted autoimmune illness, chronic pain, heart disease, cancer, dementia, and diabetes as the new normal?    I believe there is another way forward. #theremembering

106. Animal-Based vs Plant-Based, part 1.5. My response to Joel Fuhrman

In our first podcast I asked Joel to provide any interventional studies showing harm from red meat, or any unprocessed meat. He was unable to provide these studies at that time, or in the 2 weeks that followed before I released our podcast debate. After that time he wrote a blog post with his thoughts in response to many of the points I raised during the podcast, providing what he believed to be studies corroborating his points. This podcast is a solo-cast in which I respond to his blog post points to show some counter points and point out that I still do not believe his case for plant-based diets is able to be substantiated. I’ve reached out to Joel to see if he will come back on the podcast for a part two, but he has not yet responded.

Controversial Thoughts: Should you worry about vitamin A toxicity from liver?

Short answer: No.   Listen to this week's episode of Controversial Thoughts for the full breakdown. Come down the rabbit hole with me!   Here's are the cliff notes: In amounts consistent with what we would find in nature, there's no evidence that vitamin A is an issue and lots of evidence that the unique nutrients found in it are invaluable for optimal human health.   It's also totally safe for pregnancy in ancestrally consistent amounts (1-2 oz per day, ~ 8oz per week, or 6-12 capsules of Bone Marrow & Liver from @heartandsoilsupplements)    Don't trust, verify. Include liver in your life and see how you feel! I'm betting, you're going to level up in many ways!   #theremembering

105. Is going plant-based the solution to climate change? With Robby Sansom

Robby’s roots run deep in the natural food community. Previously, as CFO/COO at EPIC, Robby spent much of the last decade studying regenerative agriculture at ranches all over the world. Through this education, Force of Nature was co-founded with the intention to accelerate the creation of a global regenerative supply network. Force of Nature works in partnership with land stewards, ranchers and farmers committed to creating a positive return on the planet. With Force of Nature, consumers now have the ability to invest in environmental regeneration by consuming meat that is good for the planet.

104. Will Biden become the hamburglar or defend meat?

Rumors that Biden's climate plan might include limitations on red meat consumption turned out to be unfounded but mainstream threats against the most nutritious foods on the planet (animal meat and organs, especially red meat) remain very real!    In this episode of Controversial Thoughts, I attack many of the usual criticisms against meat head-on and discuss disturbing trends in our culture which continues to lean more and more anti-meat.    Consider this ammunition in your discussions with those who still believe cows are bad for the environment!

Controversial Thoughts: Is there one optimal diet for all humans?

Would you be surprised if my answer was "no?" ... You are very different than other people you know, some might even say you are a snowflake, "one in a million..." 😂 And that's basically true... The diet that's ideal for you is different than mine and different than what your brother/sister/mom/dad may find to be best for them... BUT! I do believe there are 2 major overarching principles that will help guide you on your journey to discover YOUR OWN ideal diet. I discuss both of these in this video and share an incredible story of improvement in psoriasis with a carnivore diet as well as a recent paper looking at the harms of seed oils in states of critical illness!

Controversial Thoughts: How to tank your Testosterone!

Want to know how to raise your Testosterone? Don’t miss this video!  In it I discuss a recent meta-analysis (summary of 6 interventional studies) showing that low-fat, higher fiber diets lead to lower testosterone levels (and lower estrogen levels in women, along with a higher rate of anovulation/menstrual irregularities)! You know, low-fat, high fiber diets like a plant-based diet that’s claimed to be “healthy” for humans these days… No thanks. I’ll keep eating my organs, meat, and animal fat and getting the unique nutrients needed to make proper sex hormones.  Welcome to #theremembering

This episode is a bit different than my usual content. My friend, and former crossfit luminary, Sevan Matossian came on to interview me!

Controversial Thoughts: Why you can’t lose weight!

Controversial Thoughts: Is there Uranium in your water?

Do you drink San Pellegrino? Gerolsteiner? Tap water? Do you know what’s in your water?  You need to listen to this podcast!  This was a fun rabbit hole to go down after one of my clients brought the possibility of Uranium in mineral waters to my attention.  Guess what?  San P, and Gerolsteiner have a significant amount of this element= no bueno. But the story gets even more complex when we try to find water that doesn’t have a ton of toxins, yet retains the beneficial components of mineral water (minerals like silica, which may actually be at the root of longevity benefits observed in the Blue Zones by preventing aluminum toxicity)...

Controversial Thoughts: Your skin issues are related to your diet!!

Acne, eczema, psoriasis, vitiligo, all have their roots in inflammation and inappropriate immune system activation, but they are rarely discussed in the context of food… And yet the foods you eat are very likely to be triggering your skin issues!  In this Controversial Thoughts video, I begin to look at just a bit of the research regarding this and discuss a few very interesting studies in dogs looking at standard diet (much the like the standard American diet) vs a species-appropriate diet… Guess what? When dogs are fed a diet that’s what they are actually supposed to be eating, their skin conditions, inflammation markers, and genetic markers get much better! Imagine that…🤯 You mean feeding animals (or humans) garbage food could cause chronic illness, and returning them to a truly appropriate diet could correct this? 😜 Yup! I believe strongly that the same is true for humans, and have seen this countless times in patients, and from those in the #AnimalBased community.  What if you don’t need those super expensive rinses and skincare products… What if you just need to return to eating a “species-appropriate diet”, aka an #Animalbased diet and your skin issues will improve?  I’m betting they will!  #Radicalhealth is your birthright! This is what #TheRemembering is all about.

He shifted towards a more proactive approach to health through food and diet changes. Dr. Gundry has successfully treated tens of thousands of patients suffering from autoimmune disorders, diabetes, leaky gut syndrome, heart disease, and neurodegenerative diseases with a protocol that detoxes the cells, repairs the gut, and nourishes the body.

Controversial Thoughts: What I think about the COVID vaccine and long haul COVID syndromes.

I said COVID twice in the title, and vaccine once. I’m pretty sure this video will get censored!    Vaccine thoughts: Apparent benefits but many have side effects with the second dose.    I hope it’s safe for the sake of my parents...   I won’t get it because I’ve already had COVID, it was mild, and I am metabolically healthy…   Here’s hoping there’s not a vaccine mandate. I think that’s a bad idea…   Long COVID: Looks like dysautonomia, could there be an underlying immune component? I think so…    Autoimmune illnesses often respond to dietary changes like removing the most triggering foods… #theremembering

Controversial Thoughts: Is Honey Really the Same As Sugar?

Oooo guys! This is a good one, and it’s going to ruffle some keto-feathers…   There is a tendency within nutritional circles to fall prey to reductionist thinking…   We know sugar is bad, right? Therefore any foods (not matter how evolutionarily consistent) that contain sucrose, or the evil-fructose are bad for you, too, right?   Not so fast seabass!    These apparent evolutionary inconsistencies have always puzzled me and caused me to wonder about how foods like honey or fruit might be different than pure sucrose, or if your body’s response to fructose might be dependent on the food it’s in…   Imagine that! Food might actually be more complex than just calories, and macronutrients…   It might actually have different effects on your body when it’s a “whole” food like honey, or even sea salt vs refined sodium chloride…   Check out this week’s edition of Controversial Thoughts to journey with me down all of these rabbit holes…   I bet you will be surprised at what we find!

Controversial Thoughts: Should you include calcium on your Carnivore or Animal-Based diet?

Short answer: yes!   Just because your blood calcium levels are within normal doesn’t mean you don’t need calcium in your diet.   How can you get this? If you tolerate dairy that’s a good option, but for most, I believe calcium from bones as MCHA (microcrystalline hydroxyapatite) is the best option.    That’s why we made our Bone Matrix supplement at Heart & Soil.     In this video, I discuss evidence for benefits of MCHA, if you should worry about calcium and heart attacks, and a bunch more.    Do you have a calcium source in your diet? If not, you need to check out this video and get your learn on!   For those wondering, the Hadza do eat the ends of bones from birds and small animals like Galagos, as well as breaking bones open to suck out the marrow.  #theremembering   -- Heart & Soil: http://heartandsoil.co

Controversial Thoughts: What I missed most during my trip to Africa

It’s good to be back in the US. My trip to Tanzania to hunt with the Hadza was amazing, and the meals I shared with them were incredible… The meat we had hunted in the bush earlier that day, along with honey and baobab we had found along the way- truly radical… Ironically, It was much harder to always get good food in “civilization” and this was the hardest part of the trip… In this edition of Controversial Thoughts, I share a bit about these struggles and the “creep” of processed foods into our food supply, making it difficult to obtain really good food unless we are very intentional about what we are eating! #theremembering If you’re not subscribed to my newsletter, you are missing out!

Controversial Thoughts: How is an Animal-Based diet different than a Paleo diet?

Animal-based vs Keto vs Paleo Though at first glance an #Animalbased diet may look like a ketogenic or paleo diet, there are some key differences. Though a paleo diet includes meat, this type of eating forgets about the incredible nutrient richness found in organs like liver, heart, kidney, etc. A paleo diet also leaves in nuts/seeds/and leafy greens which don't really provide any unique nutrients but do lead to a lot of gas 💨, bloating, and digestive issues for many people. These are full of anti-nutrients and digestive enzyme inhibitors and are best avoided. Though a very low carbohydrate ketogenic diet can be incredibly powerful for many people with diabetes, and obesity, this way of eating isn't really sustainable long term. The fact of the matter is this, eliminating carbs can help with insulin resistance but didn't cause it in the first place. To truly treat these issues we must remove seed oils and excess linoleic acid from our diets. Once you are metabolically healthy, including carbohydrates from the least toxic plant sources (sweet/non-sweet fruit- no fructose is not toxic in fruit) can be a positive addition to your diet! Animal-based diets can take many forms to suit your needs, but don't fall into overly rigid ketogenic dogma by fearing all carbohydrates long term. Cycling in low-carb periods or periods of a carnivore diet is great, but it's also nice to bring in a few low toxicity plant foods from time to time for variety, flavor, color, etc. Just know that if you chose to include nuts/seeds/leafy greens you may run into digestive issues by trending too much toward paleo. Here's to reclaiming your birthright to radical health! #theremembering SOCIAL MEDIA Heart & Soil: https://heartandsoil.co  Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/paulsaladinomd Website: https://www.paulsaladinomd.com

87. The Omega-6 Apocalypse, are seed oils to blame for diabetes, heart attacks, and chronic disease ?

Dr. Knobbe began his practice of ophthalmology in 1994, after completing his residency training at the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center, in Denver, Colorado, USA. He was certified by the American Board of Ophthalmology in 1997 and has remained board-certified since then. Eye physician and surgeon, Chris A. Knobbe, MD, had been in practice nearly 20 years when, in 2013, he asked himself the question, “Could macular degeneration be a ‘Westernized disease’? Could AMD be a disease that is the result of a Westernized diet?” That question would forever change his life. The hypothesis that Dr. Knobbe would proffer holds that macular degeneration, which is the leading cause of irreversible vision loss and blindness in developed nations, is not only preventable but treatable in the early to moderate stages, with an ancestral diet.   Time Stamps:  0:09:24 Podcast Begins 0:12:39 200 years of nutritional research 0:23:09 Needs a title 60-sec audiogram 0:30:09 Timeline for Processed Food Introductions 0:36:44 Non-negotiable: Animal fats are essential 0:44:17 150 years of Vegetable Oil Consumption 0:49:07 Who's the real culprit? 0:51:46 Heart Disease Deaths vs Sturated fat and Vegetable Oil 1:05:32 Can linoleic acid contribute to coronary artery disease? https://www.researchgate.net/publication/15005994_Can_linoleic_acid_contribute_to_coronary_artery_disease 1:08:12 Why do we blame the carbs? 1:11:35 Sweden vs US adipose Linoleic Acid and obesity 1:14:02 The Case Of Japan 1:27:20 The problem is neither calories nor carbs 1:33:49 Is processed sugar harmful in and of itself? | What carbs to eat 1:43:36 The Case Of Okinawa 1:55:41 Diets could prevent many diseases Https://www.researchgate.net/publication/10673140_Diets_could_prevent_many_diseases 2:02:50 Lowering dietary linoleic acid reduces bioactive oxidized linoleic acid metabolites in humans https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3467319/</spa

Find out in this Controversial Thoughts video along with why alcohol causes a hangover and what you can do to mitigate it prior and ameliorate it once it’s besieged you. Hint:  these answers may have to do with things I’ve discussed before like avoiding toxic seed oils to limit lipid peroxidation in your liver from alcohol byproducts, and making sure to get enough nutrients into your diet on a daily basis to optimize your glutathione and NAD/NADH statuses.  If you’re looking to lose weight, or kick more ass in 2021 you should join us at Heart & Soil for our 30 day animal based reset in January. Go to www.AnimalBased30.com to sign up and become part of the tribe that will be starting off the new year right! There will be lots of content, support, and a chance to win some of our desiccated organ supplements as well as signed copies of my book, The Carnivore Code. Welcome to #theremembering.

Controversial Thoughts: Should you include dairy on your Animal-Based diet?

In short, yes (as long as you tolerate it)!   Milk, yogurt, butter, ghee and colostrum are amazing sources of nutrients that have been highly valued by many indigenous groups for millenia. Dairy has a long tradition in Northern Europe, and among hunter-gatherer groups like the Maasai, or historically among groups like the Mongols (think warriors whose diets were basically milk, meat, and organs).    Dairy isn’t for everyone, and some may have issues with lactose (a deficiency on the lactase enzyme), or the casein and whey proteins within it. Personally I can’t tolerate dairy, but I am incredibly jealous of all of you who can because it’s delicious and nutrient-rch.  In this controversial thoughts video I discuss evidence linking dairy with cancer (most observational studies suggest an inverse correlation, i.e. higher intakes are associated with better outcomes), most of which suggests dairy is totally safe. I also discuss colostrum (the immunoglobulin-rich first milk from mammals) in detail. This stuff is chocked FULL of unique peptides, immunoglobulins, and growth factors that aid in gut healing, wound healing, and immune fortification.    Colostrum has even been studied in comparison to flu vaccinations in small studies and found to be just as effective at preventing influenza. More research is needed here but the findings from at least two studies are intriguing.    If you have questions about dairy in your diet, this video is for you! #theremembering

Controversial Thoughts: Think red meat causes cancer? Think again! The full breakdown with Ivor Cummins

I get the “doesn’t red meat cause cancer” question ALL. THE. TIME. What better way to address it yet again (there’s a whole chapter about in my book, The Carnivore Code), than with my man, Ivor (see multiple previous podcasts including a recent debunk of the COVID response- Fundamental Health).  In this extra nutrient dense edition of controversial thoughts we address the WHO (looking mighty sketch these days), TMAO, neu5gc, and much more about how we’ve been misled regarding meat and cancer. Watch/listen/learn and never again not have an answer for your clueless friend who thinks meat causes cancer.  Red meat and organs have been at the center of the human diet for millions of years. They are also the most nutrient-rich foods on the planet. Does it make even one iota of sense that they would cause harm to us? Nope. Welcome to #theremembering.  If you need more nose to tail nutrition in your life, check us out at heartandsoil.co. Our newest product, Heart of the Warrior just released today, and our grass-fed colostrum (the immunoglobulin rich first milk from mammals), Immunomilk, will be available next week!

82. Get ready for the return of lockdowns. Is this the right way to deal with COVID? With Kirk Parsley, MD

Kirk Parsley served as an Undersea Medical Officer at Naval Special Warfare Group One from June 2009 to January 2013. While there, he led the development and supervised the group’s first Sports Medicine Rehabilitation center. He is a former SEAL, and received his Medical Degree from Bethesda, Uniformed Services University of Health Sciences (USUHS) in 2004. He interned in Obstetrics and Gynecology at Balboa Naval Hospital San Diego in 2005 and subsequently completed a Navy residency in Hyperbarics and Diving Medicine in 2006.    His philosophy for wellness is simple; in order to optimize our health and get the most out of our bodies and minds, we must live more closely to the way we evolved as a species. He believes that many diseases and disorders that we accept as “inevitable” in modern society are unnecessary complications of poor sleeping habits, living in a toxic environment, eating foods we were not designed to digest, and allowing stress to overwhelm us. His passion is to help his patients and clients achieve the highest quality of life possible, and realize their health, performance, and longevity goals.   Time Stamps: 0:11:37    Podcast begins 0:12:37    Why is the mRNA vaccine ready so soon? 0:15:54    Biology is too complex for soundbites  0:20:48    Do we really know how safe the mRNA vaccine will be? 0:23:03    An mRNA Vaccine against SARS-CoV-2 — Preliminary Report    https://www.nejm.org/doi/full/10.1056/NEJMoa2022483 0:25:41    Is it better to just catch the virus? 0:31:33    The concerns surrounding mandatory vaccines 0:34:49    The evaluation of immune responses to hepatitis B vaccination in diabetic and non‐diabetic haemodialysis patients and the use of tetanus toxoid    https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/abs/10.1111/j.1440-1797.2008.00936.x 0:35:00    Obesity is associated with impaired immune response to influenza vaccination in humans    https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/22024641/ 0:35:00    Vaccines won't help the people who need them the most 0:37:13    What the MSM won't tell you (the full narrative)  0:42:43    Is covid actually causing excess deaths 0:47:20    Build robust health, build resilience 0:55:46    We will all contract Covid 0:59:06    FluView Interactivehttps://gis.cdc.gov/grasp/fluview/flu_by_age_virus.html 1:04:03    Is Covid really as virulent as proposed? 1:10:31    Working Paper: Exceptionally Many Vulnerable – 'Dry Tinder' – in Sweden Prior to COVID-19https://papers.ssrn.com/sol3/papers.cfm?ab

Controversial Thoughts: Dry Tinder, Assessing the true impact of COVID

Is it time to get scared of COVID, or is the media just back on the hysteria train?    Remember 6 months ago when everyone was trashing Sweden for their coronavirus response? Well guess what, they are looking pretty good right now despite having essentially no lockdowns or other measures in place. In this Controversial Thoughts video I discuss the concept of “dry tinder”, or the amount of any population that is most frail, elderly, and susceptible to illness and how this relates to the impact of COVID in different countries. I also share data regarding the continued importance of being metabolically healthy and having an optimal vitamin D status. As we head into winter how are your vitamin D levels looking, and how metabolically healthy are you?   If you’re interested in my thoughts on the vaccine, I discussed these in much more detail on last week’s controversial thoughts episode. Look for a podcast with @kirkparsley coming next Tuesday elaborating on all of these concepts.    Being metabolically healthy is central to long term quality of life and a robust immune system. #theremembering.

Born in South Africa, Eric Edmeades has been fascinated by human history and the origins of our species since childhood when he learned that his great-grandfather, T.F. Dreyer, had discovered the Florisbad skull; a 259,000 year old sapien skull.   Eric has undertaken a 25-year Indiana Jones-like series of adventures to explore our origins; adventures that have included exploring caves, archeological sites, and conducting many visits, over a ten year period, with the Hadza people of East Africa, some of the last truly hunter-gatherer people left on earth.   Eric is also the founder of WILDFIT®️, a health transformation company that combines nutritional anthropology and food psychology to help people create effective and lasting lifestyle transformation. WILDFIT has served over 35,000 people in more than 130 countries and has 300 certified coaches around the world.

Controversial Thoughts: The COVID vaccine will not save you from the true pandemic!

Will an mRNA vaccine save us from COVID? Doubt it, and it certainly won’t save us from the massive amount of metabolic dysfunction that is driving severe COVID outcomes. In this Controversial Thoughts episode I describe recent research with both vaccines (Moderna/Pfizer), what looks good, things we still don’t know, and major potential problems possible in the future. How do you fix metabolic dysfunction? Listen until the end of the video in which I describe a striking interventional study with a carnivore-ish diet! #theremembering

80. Is it Saturated Fat or Polyunsaturated Fat (PUFA) that’s making you Fat and Unwell? Part 2 with Peter from Hyperlipid

This stuff is technical but critically important to understanding the possible underlying mechanisms by which excess PUFA may be hurting you. If this is confusing you may want to start with the first episode Peter and I did, all of which are at heartandsoil.co.    Petro Dobromylskyj is a veterinarian, trained at the RVC, London University. He was fortunate enough to intercalate a BSc degree in physiology into his veterinary degree. He was even more fortunate to study under Patrick Wall at UCH, who set me on course to become a veterinary anaesthetist, mostly working on acute pain control. That led to the Certificate then Diploma in Veterinary Anaesthesia and enough publications to allow him to enter the European College of Veterinary Anaesthesia and Analgesia as a de facto founding member. Anaesthesia teaches you a lot. Basic science is combined with the occasional need to act rapidly. Wrong decisions can reward you with catastrophe in seconds. Thinking is mandatory. He stumbled onto nutrition completely by accident. Once you have been taught to think, it's hard to stop.

Controversial Thoughts - BONUS

If you missed yesterday's controversial thoughts podcast/video, you might also want to check that one out. I had a few ideas I wanted to discuss on COVID after I finished recording and knew I had to do another. The concept of "long COVID" is increasingly discussed today, but I'm not convinced this is anything new. First, it was "healthy" people (sadly) suffering from COVID who were obese or likely had metabolic dysfunction, and I think it's the same issue now. The majority of those with underlying metabolic dysfunction DON'T know they have it, which is why discussions of this are so important.   If you're new here and don't know what I mean by metabolic dysfunction, this might be thought of as insulin resistance, though that terminology is imprecise. Listen to the podcast next Tuesday (Fundamental Health) for part 2 with Peter from Hyperlipid to hear more discussion of this, or listen to the many podcasts I've done discussing it previously.   Take away: Long COVID is an underlying, undiagnosed metabolic illness IMO. Be metabolically healthy.#thremembering

Controversial Thoughts: Why isn't the media talking about metabolic health? And Welcome to Hogwarts.

If you are curious about connections between metabolic dysfunction and the strength of your immune system but don't have time to listen to this video you disappoint me! 🤣 JK! But you should listen to this one and share it with someone in your life who is obese (and likely pre-diabetic) who doesn't think they are at risk of a bad COVID outcome, or maybe they are terrified but don't know what they can do about it other than cowering in their homes and continue eating junk. Nothing changes without a spark. Maybe you showing these ideas to someone will be the spark that saves their life. Or not, which is why I'll keep doing what I'm doing even amidst worsening censorship. Can't hold the truth down forever. #theremembering

Controversial Thoughts: Which Plants are Most/Least Toxic?

Last week’s Controversial Thoughts was on The Carnivore Diet for Beginners. This week, I wanted to discuss the spectrum of plant toxicity a bit more. Thinking about this from the perspective of plants makes it a whole lot easier. Plants don’t want their seeds (nuts, grains, seeds, legumes), leaves, stems, or roots eaten. Avoid these foods while focusing on the least toxic parts of plants (fruit- sweet and non-sweet) while making meat and organs the centerpiece of your diet and you will thrive. #theremembering

Areas of expertise include risk management, systems management, and cyber-security.    After experiencing some personal health crises and realizing that the ‘solutions’ offered by medical professionals weren’t working or addressing causation he started applying the same approach in research and evaluation of data to his own health issues to determine root causes.    His interests have focused on dietary and environmental drivers of chronic disease, including carbohydrate, wheat, and various classes of fats. Specifically, he's attempting to understand and popularize understanding of the mechanisms driving the diet-derived explosion in so-called chronic diseases (or diseases of civilization). He is active on twitter (@tuckergoodrich, has a blog called Yelling Stop, is an Expert Advisor for the nutrition start-up Nutrita, and has been a guest on numerous podcasts.

Controversial Thoughts: Why Epidemiology Is So Misleading and more on PUFA.

The number of ways that observational epidemiology is misinterpreted never ceases to amaze me. I wanted to make a video about this and truly explain in detail healthy user bias and unhealthy user bias, as well as why these two things can be such fatal confounders in this type of study. By contrasting epidemiology from the West and East, this becomes more apparent, and studies done on the UK cohort in this video illustrate that epidemiology seems to be telling us more about how beneficial healthy behaviors like exercise and avoiding alcohol and smoking are rather than eating meat vs vegetables. If you or someone you know has been misled by the mainstream reporting of epidemiology you need to watch and share this video!    Check out heartandsoil.co if you need more nose to tail nutrition in your life.

Controversial Thoughts: When high cholesterol is GOOD!

Is high cholesterol always a bad thing? I say no! Context matters greatly here, as in are you metabolically healthy? Do you know how to assay this? Many people eating an ancestral type diet like carnivore, carnivore-ish, keto, paleo, etc.  (like me!) will see LDL rise, but I don't believe this is a bad thing if we are insulin sensitive/metabolically healthy- this is the importance of context. I discuss the importance of considering context in discussions of LDL, Lp (a), uric acid, and APOE4 in this video.

74. Is it saturated fat or polyunsaturated fat that’s killing you? With Peter Dobromylskyj from Hyperlipid.

Petro Dobromylskyj is a veterinarian, trained at the RVC, London University. He was fortunate enough to intercalate a BSc degree in physiology into his veterinary degree. He was even more fortunate to study under Patrick Wall at UCH, who set me on course to become a veterinary anaesthetist, mostly working on acute pain control. That led to the Certificate then Diploma in Veterinary Anaesthesia and enough publications to allow him to enter the European College of Veterinary Anaesthesia and Analgesia as a de facto founding member. Anaesthesia teaches you a lot. Basic science is combined with the occasional need to act rapidly. Wrong decisions can reward you with catastrophe in seconds. Thinking is mandatory.

73. How High Cholesterol Can Be Healthy, and Low Cholesterol Could be Harmful, with Dave Feldman.

If you are interested in lipids, you’ve probably heard of Dave Feldman and his work. If not,  you’ve got some homework to do, and I think you’ll be  amazed at what you find. Dave’s work can be found at cholesterolcode.com where he details his multiple, meticulous self-experimental projects. Prior to cholesterol adventures Dave was a senior software scientist and an engineer. He brings this “out of the box” thinking to the world of medicine and we are all better off for it.    He began a low-carb, high-fat diet in April 2015 and has since learned everything he could about it with special emphasis on cholesterol. He saw his own lipid numbers spike substantially after going on the diet and spotted a pattern in the lipid system that’s very similar to distributed objects in networks.   Time Stamps:   0:08:46  Podcast Begins 0:14:21  The Bradford Hill Criteria 0:15:29  Context matters in lipids 0:19:44  Carnivore MD's Lipid Panel 0:30:15  Why LDL can't be the root cause of CVD 0:35:57  Testing the Lipid Hypothesis  0:41:20  Why you can't look at LDL in a vacuum 0:47:38 High-density lipoprotein as a protective factor against coronary heart disease The Framingham study - The Framingham Study  https://www.amjmed.com/article/0002-9343(77)90874-9/pdf 0:49:19  Metabolic health is what really matters 0:52:01  Premature Atherosclerosis Associated With Monogenic Insulin Resistance  https://www.ahajournals.org/doi/10.1161/01.cir.103.18.2225?url_ver=Z39.88-2003&rfr_id=ori%3Arid%3Acrossref.org&rfr_dat=cr_pub++0pubmed& 0:54:19  LDL quality is what actually matters 1:00:39  What's the root cause of oxidized LDL?   1:06:20  Why most LDL lab tests are bonk! 1:07:41  Dave's latest experiment results 1:16:12  Summary of Dave's Energy Model 1:21:21  The body holds onto and reuses cholesterol. 1:24:28  The vital importance of ample cholesterol 1:25:40  Fasting Increases Serum Total Cholesterol, LDL Cholesterol and Apolipoprotein B in Healthy, Nonobese Humans  https://academic.oup.com/jn/article/129/11/2005/4721856 1:26:19  Brown Bears (Ursus arctos) Seem Resistant to Atherosclerosis ­Despite Highly Elevated Plasma Lipids during Hibernation and Active State  https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5439871/ 1:28:40  Strong increase in hydroxy fatty acids derived from linoleic acid in human low-density lipoproteins of atherosclerotic patients  <a href= "https://pubme

72. Are Excess Polyunsaturated Fats (PUFAs) to blame for the epidemic of Chronic Diseases? With Chris Knobbe, MD

Dr. Knobbe began his practice of ophthalmology in 1994, after completing his residency training at the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center, in Denver, Colorado, USA. He was certified by the American Board of Ophthalmology in 1997 and has remained board-certified since then.   Eye physician and surgeon, Chris A. Knobbe, MD, had been in practice nearly 20 years when, in 2013, he asked himself the question, “Could macular degeneration be a ‘Westernized disease’? Could AMD be a disease that is the result of a Westernized diet?” That question would forever change his life.   The hypothesis that Dr. Knobbe would proffer holds that macular degeneration, which is the leading cause of irreversible vision loss and blindness in developed nations, is not only preventable, but treatable in the early to moderate stages, with an ancestral diet.   Time stamps:   0:11:08 Podcast Begins 0:12:15 Chris Knobbe's Background 0:19:07 The History of macular degeneration and human diets 0:37:32 Chronic illness and obesity was once virtually nonexistent  0:48:41 When did PUFAs come onto the scene? 0:55:40 Increase in adipose tissue linoleic acid of US adults in the last half centuryhttps://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4642429/ 0:57:18 Is olive oil healthy? 0:58:47 PUFA's are the cause of chronic illness 1:02:29 The best health advice anyone could give 1:09:35 Dietary Stearic Acid Leads to a Reduction of Visceral Adipose Tissue in Athymic Nude Micehttps://www.researchgate.net/publication/265650090_Dietary_Stearic_Acid_Leads_to_a_Reduction_of_Visceral_Adipose_Tissue_in_Athymic_Nude_Mice 1:14:41 Why you need animal fats 1:17:32 Effects of diets enriched in linoleic acid and its peroxidation products on brain fatty acids, oxylipins, and aldehydes in micehttps://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC6180905/ 1:18:41 Beef tallow increases apoptosis and decreases aberrant crypt foci formation relative to soybean oil in rat colonhttps://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/15572298/ 1:21:56 Role of Physiological Levels of 4-Hydroxynonenal on Adipocyte Biology: Implications for Obesity and Metabolic Syndrome https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4038367/ 1:23:26 Fat and essential fatty acid in mammary carcinogenesishttps://academic.oup.com/ajcn/article-abstract/45/1/218/4694942?redirectedFrom=fulltext <span style="font-weigh

Do the Hadza really consume 100g of fiber per day? Do we really know what a healthy gut microbiome is? Doubt it! When asked to rank their preferences for food (their diets are essentially meat, honey, berries, baobab fruit, and tubers) they consistently rank honey as their favorite and tubers last! In this video, I break down a number of articles looking at how the Hadza eat, their predilection for honey and meat, their oral health, and the seasonal cycling of their microbiota.

Controversial Thoughts: What’s the deal with Stearic Acid- Magical or Hype?

Stearic acid is an 18 carbon saturated fat that has intriguing effects on the human body. It's been shown to positively affect mitochondrial activity, and diets that are low in cause mitochondria to change activity and phenotype in negative ways. Mouse models of this fatty acid also suggest some profoundly powerful effects on glucose tolerance and visceral fat when compared to oleic acid (18C monounsaturated fat), and linoleic acid (18C polyunsaturated fat). I break it all down in this video and share my RBC fatty acid levels as well as a compelling n=1 case study of Emmy's weight loss with dietary shifts away toward more stearic acid and less linoleic acid.    Check us out at Heart & Soil (www.heartandsoil.co) if you need more nose to tail nutrition in your life!
