The “Healthy” Foods That Are Killing You with Dr Steven Gundry and Lewis Howes

  August 2017 WHEN HE STARTED TELLING ME THE FOODS THAT ARE BAD FOR MY GUT, I WAS BLOWN AWAY.

I’ve cut out gluten, dairy, and sugar from my diet. So you can imagine how surprised I was when I sat down with another world-renowned heart surgeon and doctor, Dr. Steven Gundry, last week and he told me foods that were poisonous to all humans.

Friends with Benefits: The Human Microbiome

  March 2013 From birth on, we encounter and become home to hundreds of microbial species. In fact, the 100 trillion bacterial cells inside us outnumber our cells ten to one and bring eight million bacterial genes to cohabitate with our 22,000 genes. This enormous and diverse ecosystem — the human microbiome — functions as another organ. Scientists are only just beginning to understand its influence on human development, physiology, immunity, and nutrition. Some microbes may affect diseases like obesity, Type 1 diabetes, Crohn’s, asthma, multiple sclerosis, and even our mental health. Venture into the mysterious realm of the gut and learn how the microbiome impacts human health.

How do normally harmless external dietary substances sometimes elicit a potentially life-threatening immune response in an individual? Pathologist Cathryn Nagler’s laboratory at the University of Chicago is pursuing several complementary lines of research aimed at examining these questions. She studies non-responsiveness to these stimuli in healthy individuals and the harmful responses in individuals with food allergies or inflammatory bowel disease.

Tucker: Something ominous is happening to men in America

When men fail, all of us suffer. So, how do we fix it? Right now, men are failing physically, mentally and emotionally so what are we doing about it? Men in America’: It’s odd how rarely you hear the problems with American men publicly acknowledged. Our leaders pledge to create more opportunities for women and girls, whom they imply are failing.
