We live in an incredibly strange world these days when the food supply has become so bastardized that we have to use a qualifier like “real” to describe what we mean by the word “food.” But it’s undeniable that the further and further away from real food we have gotten over the past few decades, the more and more obesity and chronic disease has taken hold impacting tens of millions of people worldwide. This is something that has become greatly concerning to a Brisbane, Australia-based consumer health advocate named David Gillespie (listen to Jimmy’s previous interviews with David on the podcast in Episode 761, Episode 592, and Episode 219).

David has watched how the food companies have devised a clever plan to replace the most expensive real food ingredients with cheaper, industrialized foods comprised of mainly sugar, vegetable oils, and processed grains and promote them to the public as healthy with the blessing of the major health organizations. He’s written a brand new book about this topic entitled Eat Real Food: The Only Solution To Permanent Weight-Loss And Disease Prevention (currently only available in paper form in Australia, but the e-book version is available for download in the United States). Listen in as Jimmy and David have a compelling conversation about how the food supply has become changed so radically and what we can do to turn things around by switching back to real food again for the sake of our weight and health.

Beef has been under assault in recent years as a primary culprit in both global warming and health decline. But the only problem with these public perceptions of cattle is that they are dead wrong. For an environmental lawyer turned rancher named Nicolette Hahn Niman, who just happens to be a longtime vegetarian, says none of the arguments made against red meat from an environmental or public health perspective are valid. She’s written a new book about it called Defending Beef: The Case for Sustainable Meat Production to make a compelling argument for responding to these charges against meat.

Listen in as Jimmy and Nicolette talk about why people believe cattle are bad for the Earth and their health, how livestock actually contribute to the ecosystem making the land better off, why small-scale farms producing grass-fed meats can and should become the primary basis for the American food supply, how factory farming has caused damage to animal, the environment, and the humans that consume the meats produced by them, why none of the claims about beef on health have been shown to be true, how the popular notion that it takes more water to create a pound of meat is just plain wrong, how the human diet has changed so radically in just the past century, and how real sustainability in the food supply is the wave of the future of human survival.

The rise of interest in the relationship between gut health and virtually every other aspect of overall health has been quite stark over the past couple of years. And for a Naples, Florida-based board-certified neurologist and perennial #1 New York Times bestselling author Dr. David Perlmutter (listen to our previous interviews with him in Episode 867, Episode 725, and on Ask The Low-Carb Experts Episode 51), the impact of the microbiome on the brain is indelibly connected. You probably know him well for his focus on the dangers of consuming grains on your brain health with his recent runaway hit books Grain Brain: The Surprising Truth about Wheat, Carbs, and Sugar–Your Brain’s Silent Killers and The Grain Brain Cookbook: More Than 150 Life-Changing Gluten-Free Recipes to Transform Your Health. But now he’s back with a brand new book in 2015 zeroing in on this banding together of gut-brain health entitled Brain Maker: The Power of Gut Microbes to Heal and Protect Your Brain–for Life.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Perlmutter have a fascinating discussion of how the gut bacteria plays a critical role in brain health, the scientific relationship between poor gut health and issues like depression, mood disorders, and other cognitive disorders, why inflammation and bowel permeability develop in someone with poor gut health, the damaging effects that women having a C-section are putting on the future health of their babies, the devastating impact of overusing antibiotics on the human microbiome that leads to obesity, the key markers to look for demonstrating gut permeability, how fecal transplants can be helpful in treating infections as well as replenishing gut flora that’s been depleted, how reducing carbohydrates and consuming more probiotic foods is critical to reestablishing gut and brain health, why the foods you choose to consume are the biggest factor in revolutionizing brain health through the gut, the kind of fermented foods you should be eating in your low-carb diet, and so much more! If you’re just eating low-carb and thinking that’s enough to make every aspect of your health optimal, then you’ll want to hear what Dr. David Perlmutter has to say about enhancing your low-carb lifestyle to improve your health, especially in the brain, even more!

953: Harriet Brown Shows The Body Of Truth Behind Our Weight Obsession

Ask anyone what it takes to get healthy and very likely their first thought is to lose weight. It seems our culture over the past few decades has begun equating and quantifying health gain almost exclusively through the prism of weight loss. This movement didn’t sit too well for a science writer for The New York Times named Harriet Brown who regularly speaks on topics such as body image, food obsession, and eating disorders. In her research into these topics, she identified where these ideas came from that made having extra body fat the last acceptable form of societal discrimination there is and what can be done to change this mindset hellbent on making weight and health interchangeable. She’s put all of that into a compelling new 2015 book entitled Body of Truth: How Science, History, and Culture Drive Our Obsession with Weight–and What We Can Do about It.

Listen in as Jimmy and Harriet discuss why “fat” has become a four-letter word in our culture, why there is such an obsession about weight where people become desperate to lose it, the people who benefit the most from keeping us fat and telling us we’re unhealthy, the four big lies we’ve been told about weight and health, the role Big Pharma is playing in creating confusion about this issue, the impact these behind-the-scenes shenanigans are having on virtually everyone everyday, why all the fad diets that are being offered as the answer may not be what people want or need, the damage we are causing our bodies by the constant weight fluctuations up and down, the bright side of shifting away from being weight-focused to health-focused, and a whole lot more. If you or someone you love is struggling with thinking their self-worth is found in that number on the scale, this you won’t want to miss what Harriet Brown shares in this compelling and controversial interview today!

952: Sally Pacholok Says Vitamin B12 Deficiency Impacting Child Brain Development

The state of modern health is in shambles and everyone knows it. While there is so much attention placed on this diet or that diet as a means of fixing this problem, it’s a much more complicated issue than simply the food you eat. Embracing real food certainly provides you with the proper nutrients your body needs to function optimally, but there are unintended consequences to health when people don’t get certain micronutrients like Vitamin B12 into their body. This has been the passion of nearly three decades of work by a Shelby, Michigan-based ER nurse and paramedic named Sally M. Pacholok, RN (listen to her previous interview sharing about her book Could It Be B12?: An Epidemic of Misdiagnoses on the podcast way back in Episode 411).

WATCH THE TRAILER FOR SALLY PACHOLOK THE MOVIE

https://youtu.be/kuiu5_T4zB4
Sally herself was diagnosed herself with Vitamin B12 deficiency after doctors failed to properly identify her condition. That’s what started her on a rebellious mission to share with the whole world about the impact this is having on people. What she began to notice over the years of observing patients was a significant lack of this one micronutrient was leading to some rather profound issues with children beginning in the womb and all the way through adolescence and their brain development. That’s why she decided to write a new book in 2015 detailing this unspoken health concern in our kids (and adults too!) entitled What’s Wrong with My Child?: From Neurological and Developmental Disabilities to Autism…How to Protect Your Child from B12 Deficiency where she outlines the symptoms to be on the lookout for and offers up solutions for parents on how to best prevent this from happening in their children. In fact, Sally’s work with Vitamin B12 deficiency has made such a profound impact on the lives of real people that they released a feature film entitled Sally Pacholok about her life story in 2015 (coming soon to theaters–watch the trailer above!).

Listen in as Jimmy and Sally discuss what has been happening in her work since her last appearance on the podcast in 2010, why she decided to focus primarily on children’s health in her new book, why the mainstream medical establishment basically dismisses the Vitamin B12 deficiency connection to disease, the vital importance Vitamin B12 plays on brain development in kids, how Vitamin B12 deficiency may be directly contributing to autism and other issues on the autism spectrum, why an expectant mother needs to have proper Vitamin B12 levels to pass on to her baby, the feature film that was made about her life story, and so much more! We are honored and thrilled to have such an illustrious expert joining us on the show today. Soak this one in and ENJOY!

Listen in as Jimmy and Nicolette talk about why people believe cattle are bad for the Earth and their health, how livestock actually contribute to the ecosystem making the land better off, why small-scale farms producing grass-fed meats can and should become the primary basis for the American food supply, how factory farming has caused damage to animal, the environment, and the humans that consume the meats produced by them, why none of the claims about beef on health have been shown to be true, how the popular notion that it takes more water to create a pound of meat is just plain wrong, how the human diet has changed so radically in just the past century, and how real sustainability in the food supply is the wave of the future of human survival.

The rise of interest in the relationship between gut health and virtually every other aspect of overall health has been quite stark over the past couple of years. And for a Naples, Florida-based board-certified neurologist and perennial #1 New York Times bestselling author Dr. David Perlmutter (listen to our previous interviews with him in Episode 867, Episode 725, and on Ask The Low-Carb Experts Episode 51), the impact of the microbiome on the brain is indelibly connected. You probably know him well for his focus on the dangers of consuming grains on your brain health with his recent runaway hit books Grain Brain: The Surprising Truth about Wheat, Carbs, and Sugar–Your Brain’s Silent Killers and The Grain Brain Cookbook: More Than 150 Life-Changing Gluten-Free Recipes to Transform Your Health. But now he’s back with a brand new book in 2015 zeroing in on this banding together of gut-brain health entitled Brain Maker: The Power of Gut Microbes to Heal and Protect Your Brain–for Life.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Perlmutter have a fascinating discussion of how the gut bacteria plays a critical role in brain health, the scientific relationship between poor gut health and issues like depression, mood disorders, and other cognitive disorders, why inflammation and bowel permeability develop in someone with poor gut health, the damaging effects that women having a C-section are putting on the future health of their babies, the devastating impact of overusing antibiotics on the human microbiome that leads to obesity, the key markers to look for demonstrating gut permeability, how fecal transplants can be helpful in treating infections as well as replenishing gut flora that’s been depleted, how reducing carbohydrates and consuming more probiotic foods is critical to reestablishing gut and brain health, why the foods you choose to consume are the biggest factor in revolutionizing brain health through the gut, the kind of fermented foods you should be eating in your low-carb diet, and so much more! If you’re just eating low-carb and thinking that’s enough to make every aspect of your health optimal, then you’ll want to hear what Dr. David Perlmutter has to say about enhancing your low-carb lifestyle to improve your health, especially in the brain, even more!

Ask anyone what it takes to get healthy and very likely their first thought is to lose weight. It seems our culture over the past few decades has begun equating and quantifying health gain almost exclusively through the prism of weight loss. This movement didn’t sit too well for a science writer for The New York Times named Harriet Brown who regularly speaks on topics such as body image, food obsession, and eating disorders. In her research into these topics, she identified where these ideas came from that made having extra body fat the last acceptable form of societal discrimination there is and what can be done to change this mindset hellbent on making weight and health interchangeable. She’s put all of that into a compelling new 2015 book entitled Body of Truth: How Science, History, and Culture Drive Our Obsession with Weight–and What We Can Do about It.

Listen in as Jimmy and Harriet discuss why “fat” has become a four-letter word in our culture, why there is such an obsession about weight where people become desperate to lose it, the people who benefit the most from keeping us fat and telling us we’re unhealthy, the four big lies we’ve been told about weight and health, the role Big Pharma is playing in creating confusion about this issue, the impact these behind-the-scenes shenanigans are having on virtually everyone everyday, why all the fad diets that are being offered as the answer may not be what people want or need, the damage we are causing our bodies by the constant weight fluctuations up and down, the bright side of shifting away from being weight-focused to health-focused, and a whole lot more. If you or someone you love is struggling with thinking their self-worth is found in that number on the scale, this you won’t want to miss what Harriet Brown shares in this compelling and controversial interview today!

952: Sally Pacholok Says Vitamin B12 Deficiency Impacting Child Brain Development

The state of modern health is in shambles and everyone knows it. While there is so much attention placed on this diet or that diet as a means of fixing this problem, it’s a much more complicated issue than simply the food you eat. Embracing real food certainly provides you with the proper nutrients your body needs to function optimally, but there are unintended consequences to health when people don’t get certain micronutrients like Vitamin B12 into their body. This has been the passion of nearly three decades of work by a Shelby, Michigan-based ER nurse and paramedic named Sally M. Pacholok, RN (listen to her previous interview sharing about her book Could It Be B12?: An Epidemic of Misdiagnoses on the podcast way back in Episode 411).

WATCH THE TRAILER FOR SALLY PACHOLOK THE MOVIE

https://youtu.be/kuiu5_T4zB4
Sally herself was diagnosed herself with Vitamin B12 deficiency after doctors failed to properly identify her condition. That’s what started her on a rebellious mission to share with the whole world about the impact this is having on people. What she began to notice over the years of observing patients was a significant lack of this one micronutrient was leading to some rather profound issues with children beginning in the womb and all the way through adolescence and their brain development. That’s why she decided to write a new book in 2015 detailing this unspoken health concern in our kids (and adults too!) entitled What’s Wrong with My Child?: From Neurological and Developmental Disabilities to Autism…How to Protect Your Child from B12 Deficiency where she outlines the symptoms to be on the lookout for and offers up solutions for parents on how to best prevent this from happening in their children. In fact, Sally’s work with Vitamin B12 deficiency has made such a profound impact on the lives of real people that they released a feature film entitled Sally Pacholok about her life story in 2015 (coming soon to theaters–watch the trailer above!).

Listen in as Jimmy and Sally discuss what has been happening in her work since her last appearance on the podcast in 2010, why she decided to focus primarily on children’s health in her new book, why the mainstream medical establishment basically dismisses the Vitamin B12 deficiency connection to disease, the vital importance Vitamin B12 plays on brain development in kids, how Vitamin B12 deficiency may be directly contributing to autism and other issues on the autism spectrum, why an expectant mother needs to have proper Vitamin B12 levels to pass on to her baby, the feature film that was made about her life story, and so much more! We are honored and thrilled to have such an illustrious expert joining us on the show today. Soak this one in and ENJOY!

956: David Gillespie Says The Time Has Come For People To Eat Real Food Again

We live in an incredibly strange world these days when the food supply has become so bastardized that we have to use a qualifier like “real” to describe what we mean by the word “food.” But it’s undeniable that the further and further away from real food we have gotten over the past few decades, the more and more obesity and chronic disease has taken hold impacting tens of millions of people worldwide. This is something that has become greatly concerning to a Brisbane, Australia-based consumer health advocate named David Gillespie (listen to Jimmy’s previous interviews with David on the podcast in Episode 761, Episode 592, and Episode 219).

David has watched how the food companies have devised a clever plan to replace the most expensive real food ingredients with cheaper, industrialized foods comprised of mainly sugar, vegetable oils, and processed grains and promote them to the public as healthy with the blessing of the major health organizations. He’s written a brand new book about this topic entitled Eat Real Food: The Only Solution To Permanent Weight-Loss And Disease Prevention (currently only available in paper form in Australia, but the e-book version is available for download in the United States). Listen in as Jimmy and David have a compelling conversation about how the food supply has become changed so radically and what we can do to turn things around by switching back to real food again for the sake of our weight and health.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Perlmutter have a fascinating discussion of how the gut bacteria plays a critical role in brain health, the scientific relationship between poor gut health and issues like depression, mood disorders, and other cognitive disorders, why inflammation and bowel permeability develop in someone with poor gut health, the damaging effects that women having a C-section are putting on the future health of their babies, the devastating impact of overusing antibiotics on the human microbiome that leads to obesity, the key markers to look for demonstrating gut permeability, how fecal transplants can be helpful in treating infections as well as replenishing gut flora that’s been depleted, how reducing carbohydrates and consuming more probiotic foods is critical to reestablishing gut and brain health, why the foods you choose to consume are the biggest factor in revolutionizing brain health through the gut, the kind of fermented foods you should be eating in your low-carb diet, and so much more! If you’re just eating low-carb and thinking that’s enough to make every aspect of your health optimal, then you’ll want to hear what Dr. David Perlmutter has to say about enhancing your low-carb lifestyle to improve your health, especially in the brain, even more!

Ask anyone what it takes to get healthy and very likely their first thought is to lose weight. It seems our culture over the past few decades has begun equating and quantifying health gain almost exclusively through the prism of weight loss. This movement didn’t sit too well for a science writer for The New York Times named Harriet Brown who regularly speaks on topics such as body image, food obsession, and eating disorders. In her research into these topics, she identified where these ideas came from that made having extra body fat the last acceptable form of societal discrimination there is and what can be done to change this mindset hellbent on making weight and health interchangeable. She’s put all of that into a compelling new 2015 book entitled Body of Truth: How Science, History, and Culture Drive Our Obsession with Weight–and What We Can Do about It.

Listen in as Jimmy and Harriet discuss why “fat” has become a four-letter word in our culture, why there is such an obsession about weight where people become desperate to lose it, the people who benefit the most from keeping us fat and telling us we’re unhealthy, the four big lies we’ve been told about weight and health, the role Big Pharma is playing in creating confusion about this issue, the impact these behind-the-scenes shenanigans are having on virtually everyone everyday, why all the fad diets that are being offered as the answer may not be what people want or need, the damage we are causing our bodies by the constant weight fluctuations up and down, the bright side of shifting away from being weight-focused to health-focused, and a whole lot more. If you or someone you love is struggling with thinking their self-worth is found in that number on the scale, this you won’t want to miss what Harriet Brown shares in this compelling and controversial interview today!

952: Sally Pacholok Says Vitamin B12 Deficiency Impacting Child Brain Development

The state of modern health is in shambles and everyone knows it. While there is so much attention placed on this diet or that diet as a means of fixing this problem, it’s a much more complicated issue than simply the food you eat. Embracing real food certainly provides you with the proper nutrients your body needs to function optimally, but there are unintended consequences to health when people don’t get certain micronutrients like Vitamin B12 into their body. This has been the passion of nearly three decades of work by a Shelby, Michigan-based ER nurse and paramedic named Sally M. Pacholok, RN (listen to her previous interview sharing about her book Could It Be B12?: An Epidemic of Misdiagnoses on the podcast way back in Episode 411).

WATCH THE TRAILER FOR SALLY PACHOLOK THE MOVIE

https://youtu.be/kuiu5_T4zB4
Sally herself was diagnosed herself with Vitamin B12 deficiency after doctors failed to properly identify her condition. That’s what started her on a rebellious mission to share with the whole world about the impact this is having on people. What she began to notice over the years of observing patients was a significant lack of this one micronutrient was leading to some rather profound issues with children beginning in the womb and all the way through adolescence and their brain development. That’s why she decided to write a new book in 2015 detailing this unspoken health concern in our kids (and adults too!) entitled What’s Wrong with My Child?: From Neurological and Developmental Disabilities to Autism…How to Protect Your Child from B12 Deficiency where she outlines the symptoms to be on the lookout for and offers up solutions for parents on how to best prevent this from happening in their children. In fact, Sally’s work with Vitamin B12 deficiency has made such a profound impact on the lives of real people that they released a feature film entitled Sally Pacholok about her life story in 2015 (coming soon to theaters–watch the trailer above!).

Listen in as Jimmy and Sally discuss what has been happening in her work since her last appearance on the podcast in 2010, why she decided to focus primarily on children’s health in her new book, why the mainstream medical establishment basically dismisses the Vitamin B12 deficiency connection to disease, the vital importance Vitamin B12 plays on brain development in kids, how Vitamin B12 deficiency may be directly contributing to autism and other issues on the autism spectrum, why an expectant mother needs to have proper Vitamin B12 levels to pass on to her baby, the feature film that was made about her life story, and so much more! We are honored and thrilled to have such an illustrious expert joining us on the show today. Soak this one in and ENJOY!

956: David Gillespie Says The Time Has Come For People To Eat Real Food Again

We live in an incredibly strange world these days when the food supply has become so bastardized that we have to use a qualifier like “real” to describe what we mean by the word “food.” But it’s undeniable that the further and further away from real food we have gotten over the past few decades, the more and more obesity and chronic disease has taken hold impacting tens of millions of people worldwide. This is something that has become greatly concerning to a Brisbane, Australia-based consumer health advocate named David Gillespie (listen to Jimmy’s previous interviews with David on the podcast in Episode 761, Episode 592, and Episode 219).

David has watched how the food companies have devised a clever plan to replace the most expensive real food ingredients with cheaper, industrialized foods comprised of mainly sugar, vegetable oils, and processed grains and promote them to the public as healthy with the blessing of the major health organizations. He’s written a brand new book about this topic entitled Eat Real Food: The Only Solution To Permanent Weight-Loss And Disease Prevention (currently only available in paper form in Australia, but the e-book version is available for download in the United States). Listen in as Jimmy and David have a compelling conversation about how the food supply has become changed so radically and what we can do to turn things around by switching back to real food again for the sake of our weight and health.

955: Nicolette Hahn Niman Has Dedicated Her Life To Defending Sustainable Beef

Beef has been under assault in recent years as a primary culprit in both global warming and health decline. But the only problem with these public perceptions of cattle is that they are dead wrong. For an environmental lawyer turned rancher named Nicolette Hahn Niman, who just happens to be a longtime vegetarian, says none of the arguments made against red meat from an environmental or public health perspective are valid. She’s written a new book about it called Defending Beef: The Case for Sustainable Meat Production to make a compelling argument for responding to these charges against meat.

Listen in as Jimmy and Nicolette talk about why people believe cattle are bad for the Earth and their health, how livestock actually contribute to the ecosystem making the land better off, why small-scale farms producing grass-fed meats can and should become the primary basis for the American food supply, how factory farming has caused damage to animal, the environment, and the humans that consume the meats produced by them, why none of the claims about beef on health have been shown to be true, how the popular notion that it takes more water to create a pound of meat is just plain wrong, how the human diet has changed so radically in just the past century, and how real sustainability in the food supply is the wave of the future of human survival.

In her research into these topics, she identified where these ideas came from that made having extra body fat the last acceptable form of societal discrimination there is and what can be done to change this mindset hellbent on making weight and health interchangeable. She’s put all of that into a compelling new 2015 book entitled Body of Truth: How Science, History, and Culture Drive Our Obsession with Weight–and What We Can Do about It.

Listen in as Jimmy and Harriet discuss why “fat” has become a four-letter word in our culture, why there is such an obsession about weight where people become desperate to lose it, the people who benefit the most from keeping us fat and telling us we’re unhealthy, the four big lies we’ve been told about weight and health, the role Big Pharma is playing in creating confusion about this issue, the impact these behind-the-scenes shenanigans are having on virtually everyone everyday, why all the fad diets that are being offered as the answer may not be what people want or need, the damage we are causing our bodies by the constant weight fluctuations up and down, the bright side of shifting away from being weight-focused to health-focused, and a whole lot more. If you or someone you love is struggling with thinking their self-worth is found in that number on the scale, this you won’t want to miss what Harriet Brown shares in this compelling and controversial interview today!

952: Sally Pacholok Says Vitamin B12 Deficiency Impacting Child Brain Development

The state of modern health is in shambles and everyone knows it. While there is so much attention placed on this diet or that diet as a means of fixing this problem, it’s a much more complicated issue than simply the food you eat. Embracing real food certainly provides you with the proper nutrients your body needs to function optimally, but there are unintended consequences to health when people don’t get certain micronutrients like Vitamin B12 into their body. This has been the passion of nearly three decades of work by a Shelby, Michigan-based ER nurse and paramedic named Sally M. Pacholok, RN (listen to her previous interview sharing about her book Could It Be B12?: An Epidemic of Misdiagnoses on the podcast way back in Episode 411).

Sally herself was diagnosed herself with Vitamin B12 deficiency after doctors failed to properly identify her condition. That’s what started her on a rebellious mission to share with the whole world about the impact this is having on people. What she began to notice over the years of observing patients was a significant lack of this one micronutrient was leading to some rather profound issues with children beginning in the womb and all the way through adolescence and their brain development. That’s why she decided to write a new book in 2015 detailing this unspoken health concern in our kids (and adults too!) entitled What’s Wrong with My Child?: From Neurological and Developmental Disabilities to Autism…How to Protect Your Child from B12 Deficiency where she outlines the symptoms to be on the lookout for and offers up solutions for parents on how to best prevent this from happening in their children. In fact, Sally’s work with Vitamin B12 deficiency has made such a profound impact on the lives of real people that they released a feature film entitled Sally Pacholok about her life story in 2015 (coming soon to theaters–watch the trailer above!).

Listen in as Jimmy and Sally discuss what has been happening in her work since her last appearance on the podcast in 2010, why she decided to focus primarily on children’s health in her new book, why the mainstream medical establishment basically dismisses the Vitamin B12 deficiency connection to disease, the vital importance Vitamin B12 plays on brain development in kids, how Vitamin B12 deficiency may be directly contributing to autism and other issues on the autism spectrum, why an expectant mother needs to have proper Vitamin B12 levels to pass on to her baby, the feature film that was made about her life story, and so much more! We are honored and thrilled to have such an illustrious expert joining us on the show today. Soak this one in and ENJOY!

We live in an incredibly strange world these days when the food supply has become so bastardized that we have to use a qualifier like “real” to describe what we mean by the word “food.” But it’s undeniable that the further and further away from real food we have gotten over the past few decades, the more and more obesity and chronic disease has taken hold impacting tens of millions of people worldwide. This is something that has become greatly concerning to a Brisbane, Australia-based consumer health advocate named David Gillespie (listen to Jimmy’s previous interviews with David on the podcast in Episode 761, Episode 592, and Episode 219).

David has watched how the food companies have devised a clever plan to replace the most expensive real food ingredients with cheaper, industrialized foods comprised of mainly sugar, vegetable oils, and processed grains and promote them to the public as healthy with the blessing of the major health organizations. He’s written a brand new book about this topic entitled Eat Real Food: The Only Solution To Permanent Weight-Loss And Disease Prevention (currently only available in paper form in Australia, but the e-book version is available for download in the United States). Listen in as Jimmy and David have a compelling conversation about how the food supply has become changed so radically and what we can do to turn things around by switching back to real food again for the sake of our weight and health.

Beef has been under assault in recent years as a primary culprit in both global warming and health decline. But the only problem with these public perceptions of cattle is that they are dead wrong. For an environmental lawyer turned rancher named Nicolette Hahn Niman, who just happens to be a longtime vegetarian, says none of the arguments made against red meat from an environmental or public health perspective are valid. She’s written a new book about it called Defending Beef: The Case for Sustainable Meat Production to make a compelling argument for responding to these charges against meat.

Listen in as Jimmy and Nicolette talk about why people believe cattle are bad for the Earth and their health, how livestock actually contribute to the ecosystem making the land better off, why small-scale farms producing grass-fed meats can and should become the primary basis for the American food supply, how factory farming has caused damage to animal, the environment, and the humans that consume the meats produced by them, why none of the claims about beef on health have been shown to be true, how the popular notion that it takes more water to create a pound of meat is just plain wrong, how the human diet has changed so radically in just the past century, and how real sustainability in the food supply is the wave of the future of human survival.

The rise of interest in the relationship between gut health and virtually every other aspect of overall health has been quite stark over the past couple of years. And for a Naples, Florida-based board-certified neurologist and perennial #1 New York Times bestselling author Dr. David Perlmutter (listen to our previous interviews with him in Episode 867, Episode 725, and on Ask The Low-Carb Experts Episode 51), the impact of the microbiome on the brain is indelibly connected. You probably know him well for his focus on the dangers of consuming grains on your brain health with his recent runaway hit books Grain Brain: The Surprising Truth about Wheat, Carbs, and Sugar–Your Brain’s Silent Killers and The Grain Brain Cookbook: More Than 150 Life-Changing Gluten-Free Recipes to Transform Your Health. But now he’s back with a brand new book in 2015 zeroing in on this banding together of gut-brain health entitled Brain Maker: The Power of Gut Microbes to Heal and Protect Your Brain–for Life.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Perlmutter have a fascinating discussion of how the gut bacteria plays a critical role in brain health, the scientific relationship between poor gut health and issues like depression, mood disorders, and other cognitive disorders, why inflammation and bowel permeability develop in someone with poor gut health, the damaging effects that women having a C-section are putting on the future health of their babies, the devastating impact of overusing antibiotics on the human microbiome that leads to obesity, the key markers to look for demonstrating gut permeability, how fecal transplants can be helpful in treating infections as well as replenishing gut flora that’s been depleted, how reducing carbohydrates and consuming more probiotic foods is critical to reestablishing gut and brain health, why the foods you choose to consume are the biggest factor in revolutionizing brain health through the gut, the kind of fermented foods you should be eating in your low-carb diet, and so much more! If you’re just eating low-carb and thinking that’s enough to make every aspect of your health optimal, then you’ll want to hear what Dr. David Perlmutter has to say about enhancing your low-carb lifestyle to improve your health, especially in the brain, even more!

What she began to notice over the years of observing patients was a significant lack of this one micronutrient was leading to some rather profound issues with children beginning in the womb and all the way through adolescence and their brain development. That’s why she decided to write a new book in 2015 detailing this unspoken health concern in our kids (and adults too!) entitled What’s Wrong with My Child?: From Neurological and Developmental Disabilities to Autism…How to Protect Your Child from B12 Deficiency where she outlines the symptoms to be on the lookout for and offers up solutions for parents on how to best prevent this from happening in their children. In fact, Sally’s work with Vitamin B12 deficiency has made such a profound impact on the lives of real people that they released a feature film entitled Sally Pacholok about her life story in 2015 (coming soon to theaters–watch the trailer above!).

Listen in as Jimmy and Sally discuss what has been happening in her work since her last appearance on the podcast in 2010, why she decided to focus primarily on children’s health in her new book, why the mainstream medical establishment basically dismisses the Vitamin B12 deficiency connection to disease, the vital importance Vitamin B12 plays on brain development in kids, how Vitamin B12 deficiency may be directly contributing to autism and other issues on the autism spectrum, why an expectant mother needs to have proper Vitamin B12 levels to pass on to her baby, the feature film that was made about her life story, and so much more! We are honored and thrilled to have such an illustrious expert joining us on the show today. Soak this one in and ENJOY!

956: David Gillespie Says The Time Has Come For People To Eat Real Food Again

We live in an incredibly strange world these days when the food supply has become so bastardized that we have to use a qualifier like “real” to describe what we mean by the word “food.” But it’s undeniable that the further and further away from real food we have gotten over the past few decades, the more and more obesity and chronic disease has taken hold impacting tens of millions of people worldwide. This is something that has become greatly concerning to a Brisbane, Australia-based consumer health advocate named David Gillespie (listen to Jimmy’s previous interviews with David on the podcast in Episode 761, Episode 592, and Episode 219).

David has watched how the food companies have devised a clever plan to replace the most expensive real food ingredients with cheaper, industrialized foods comprised of mainly sugar, vegetable oils, and processed grains and promote them to the public as healthy with the blessing of the major health organizations. He’s written a brand new book about this topic entitled Eat Real Food: The Only Solution To Permanent Weight-Loss And Disease Prevention (currently only available in paper form in Australia, but the e-book version is available for download in the United States). Listen in as Jimmy and David have a compelling conversation about how the food supply has become changed so radically and what we can do to turn things around by switching back to real food again for the sake of our weight and health.

955: Nicolette Hahn Niman Has Dedicated Her Life To Defending Sustainable Beef

Beef has been under assault in recent years as a primary culprit in both global warming and health decline. But the only problem with these public perceptions of cattle is that they are dead wrong. For an environmental lawyer turned rancher named Nicolette Hahn Niman, who just happens to be a longtime vegetarian, says none of the arguments made against red meat from an environmental or public health perspective are valid. She’s written a new book about it called Defending Beef: The Case for Sustainable Meat Production to make a compelling argument for responding to these charges against meat.

Listen in as Jimmy and Nicolette talk about why people believe cattle are bad for the Earth and their health, how livestock actually contribute to the ecosystem making the land better off, why small-scale farms producing grass-fed meats can and should become the primary basis for the American food supply, how factory farming has caused damage to animal, the environment, and the humans that consume the meats produced by them, why none of the claims about beef on health have been shown to be true, how the popular notion that it takes more water to create a pound of meat is just plain wrong, how the human diet has changed so radically in just the past century, and how real sustainability in the food supply is the wave of the future of human survival.

The rise of interest in the relationship between gut health and virtually every other aspect of overall health has been quite stark over the past couple of years. And for a Naples, Florida-based board-certified neurologist and perennial #1 New York Times bestselling author Dr. David Perlmutter (listen to our previous interviews with him in Episode 867, Episode 725, and on Ask The Low-Carb Experts Episode 51), the impact of the microbiome on the brain is indelibly connected. You probably know him well for his focus on the dangers of consuming grains on your brain health with his recent runaway hit books Grain Brain: The Surprising Truth about Wheat, Carbs, and Sugar–Your Brain’s Silent Killers and The Grain Brain Cookbook: More Than 150 Life-Changing Gluten-Free Recipes to Transform Your Health. But now he’s back with a brand new book in 2015 zeroing in on this banding together of gut-brain health entitled Brain Maker: The Power of Gut Microbes to Heal and Protect Your Brain–for Life.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Perlmutter have a fascinating discussion of how the gut bacteria plays a critical role in brain health, the scientific relationship between poor gut health and issues like depression, mood disorders, and other cognitive disorders, why inflammation and bowel permeability develop in someone with poor gut health, the damaging effects that women having a C-section are putting on the future health of their babies, the devastating impact of overusing antibiotics on the human microbiome that leads to obesity, the key markers to look for demonstrating gut permeability, how fecal transplants can be helpful in treating infections as well as replenishing gut flora that’s been depleted, how reducing carbohydrates and consuming more probiotic foods is critical to reestablishing gut and brain health, why the foods you choose to consume are the biggest factor in revolutionizing brain health through the gut, the kind of fermented foods you should be eating in your low-carb diet, and so much more! If you’re just eating low-carb and thinking that’s enough to make every aspect of your health optimal, then you’ll want to hear what Dr. David Perlmutter has to say about enhancing your low-carb lifestyle to improve your health, especially in the brain, even more!

953: Harriet Brown Shows The Body Of Truth Behind Our Weight Obsession

Ask anyone what it takes to get healthy and very likely their first thought is to lose weight. It seems our culture over the past few decades has begun equating and quantifying health gain almost exclusively through the prism of weight loss. This movement didn’t sit too well for a science writer for The New York Times named Harriet Brown who regularly speaks on topics such as body image, food obsession, and eating disorders. In her research into these topics, she identified where these ideas came from that made having extra body fat the last acceptable form of societal discrimination there is and what can be done to change this mindset hellbent on making weight and health interchangeable. She’s put all of that into a compelling new 2015 book entitled Body of Truth: How Science, History, and Culture Drive Our Obsession with Weight–and What We Can Do about It.

Listen in as Jimmy and Harriet discuss why “fat” has become a four-letter word in our culture, why there is such an obsession about weight where people become desperate to lose it, the people who benefit the most from keeping us fat and telling us we’re unhealthy, the four big lies we’ve been told about weight and health, the role Big Pharma is playing in creating confusion about this issue, the impact these behind-the-scenes shenanigans are having on virtually everyone everyday, why all the fad diets that are being offered as the answer may not be what people want or need, the damage we are causing our bodies by the constant weight fluctuations up and down, the bright side of shifting away from being weight-focused to health-focused, and a whole lot more. If you or someone you love is struggling with thinking their self-worth is found in that number on the scale, this you won’t want to miss what Harriet Brown shares in this compelling and controversial interview today!

The state of modern health is in shambles and everyone knows it. While there is so much attention placed on this diet or that diet as a means of fixing this problem, it’s a much more complicated issue than simply the food you eat. Embracing real food certainly provides you with the proper nutrients your body needs to function optimally, but there are unintended consequences to health when people don’t get certain micronutrients like Vitamin B12 into their body. This has been the passion of nearly three decades of work by a Shelby, Michigan-based ER nurse and paramedic named Sally M. Pacholok, RN (listen to her previous interview sharing about her book Could It Be B12?: An Epidemic of Misdiagnoses on the podcast way back in Episode 411).

David has watched how the food companies have devised a clever plan to replace the most expensive real food ingredients with cheaper, industrialized foods comprised of mainly sugar, vegetable oils, and processed grains and promote them to the public as healthy with the blessing of the major health organizations. He’s written a brand new book about this topic entitled Eat Real Food: The Only Solution To Permanent Weight-Loss And Disease Prevention (currently only available in paper form in Australia, but the e-book version is available for download in the United States). Listen in as Jimmy and David have a compelling conversation about how the food supply has become changed so radically and what we can do to turn things around by switching back to real food again for the sake of our weight and health.

Beef has been under assault in recent years as a primary culprit in both global warming and health decline. But the only problem with these public perceptions of cattle is that they are dead wrong. For an environmental lawyer turned rancher named Nicolette Hahn Niman, who just happens to be a longtime vegetarian, says none of the arguments made against red meat from an environmental or public health perspective are valid. She’s written a new book about it called Defending Beef: The Case for Sustainable Meat Production to make a compelling argument for responding to these charges against meat.

Listen in as Jimmy and Nicolette talk about why people believe cattle are bad for the Earth and their health, how livestock actually contribute to the ecosystem making the land better off, why small-scale farms producing grass-fed meats can and should become the primary basis for the American food supply, how factory farming has caused damage to animal, the environment, and the humans that consume the meats produced by them, why none of the claims about beef on health have been shown to be true, how the popular notion that it takes more water to create a pound of meat is just plain wrong, how the human diet has changed so radically in just the past century, and how real sustainability in the food supply is the wave of the future of human survival.

The rise of interest in the relationship between gut health and virtually every other aspect of overall health has been quite stark over the past couple of years. And for a Naples, Florida-based board-certified neurologist and perennial #1 New York Times bestselling author Dr. David Perlmutter (listen to our previous interviews with him in Episode 867, Episode 725, and on Ask The Low-Carb Experts Episode 51), the impact of the microbiome on the brain is indelibly connected. You probably know him well for his focus on the dangers of consuming grains on your brain health with his recent runaway hit books Grain Brain: The Surprising Truth about Wheat, Carbs, and Sugar–Your Brain’s Silent Killers and The Grain Brain Cookbook: More Than 150 Life-Changing Gluten-Free Recipes to Transform Your Health. But now he’s back with a brand new book in 2015 zeroing in on this banding together of gut-brain health entitled Brain Maker: The Power of Gut Microbes to Heal and Protect Your Brain–for Life.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Perlmutter have a fascinating discussion of how the gut bacteria plays a critical role in brain health, the scientific relationship between poor gut health and issues like depression, mood disorders, and other cognitive disorders, why inflammation and bowel permeability develop in someone with poor gut health, the damaging effects that women having a C-section are putting on the future health of their babies, the devastating impact of overusing antibiotics on the human microbiome that leads to obesity, the key markers to look for demonstrating gut permeability, how fecal transplants can be helpful in treating infections as well as replenishing gut flora that’s been depleted, how reducing carbohydrates and consuming more probiotic foods is critical to reestablishing gut and brain health, why the foods you choose to consume are the biggest factor in revolutionizing brain health through the gut, the kind of fermented foods you should be eating in your low-carb diet, and so much more! If you’re just eating low-carb and thinking that’s enough to make every aspect of your health optimal, then you’ll want to hear what Dr. David Perlmutter has to say about enhancing your low-carb lifestyle to improve your health, especially in the brain, even more!

953: Harriet Brown Shows The Body Of Truth Behind Our Weight Obsession

Ask anyone what it takes to get healthy and very likely their first thought is to lose weight. It seems our culture over the past few decades has begun equating and quantifying health gain almost exclusively through the prism of weight loss. This movement didn’t sit too well for a science writer for The New York Times named Harriet Brown who regularly speaks on topics such as body image, food obsession, and eating disorders. In her research into these topics, she identified where these ideas came from that made having extra body fat the last acceptable form of societal discrimination there is and what can be done to change this mindset hellbent on making weight and health interchangeable. She’s put all of that into a compelling new 2015 book entitled Body of Truth: How Science, History, and Culture Drive Our Obsession with Weight–and What We Can Do about It.

Listen in as Jimmy and Harriet discuss why “fat” has become a four-letter word in our culture, why there is such an obsession about weight where people become desperate to lose it, the people who benefit the most from keeping us fat and telling us we’re unhealthy, the four big lies we’ve been told about weight and health, the role Big Pharma is playing in creating confusion about this issue, the impact these behind-the-scenes shenanigans are having on virtually everyone everyday, why all the fad diets that are being offered as the answer may not be what people want or need, the damage we are causing our bodies by the constant weight fluctuations up and down, the bright side of shifting away from being weight-focused to health-focused, and a whole lot more. If you or someone you love is struggling with thinking their self-worth is found in that number on the scale, this you won’t want to miss what Harriet Brown shares in this compelling and controversial interview today!

952: Sally Pacholok Says Vitamin B12 Deficiency Impacting Child Brain Development

The state of modern health is in shambles and everyone knows it. While there is so much attention placed on this diet or that diet as a means of fixing this problem, it’s a much more complicated issue than simply the food you eat. Embracing real food certainly provides you with the proper nutrients your body needs to function optimally, but there are unintended consequences to health when people don’t get certain micronutrients like Vitamin B12 into their body. This has been the passion of nearly three decades of work by a Shelby, Michigan-based ER nurse and paramedic named Sally M. Pacholok, RN (listen to her previous interview sharing about her book Could It Be B12?: An Epidemic of Misdiagnoses on the podcast way back in Episode 411).

WATCH THE TRAILER FOR SALLY PACHOLOK THE MOVIE

https://youtu.be/kuiu5_T4zB4
Sally herself was diagnosed herself with Vitamin B12 deficiency after doctors failed to properly identify her condition. That’s what started her on a rebellious mission to share with the whole world about the impact this is having on people. What she began to notice over the years of observing patients was a significant lack of this one micronutrient was leading to some rather profound issues with children beginning in the womb and all the way through adolescence and their brain development. That’s why she decided to write a new book in 2015 detailing this unspoken health concern in our kids (and adults too!) entitled What’s Wrong with My Child?: From Neurological and Developmental Disabilities to Autism…How to Protect Your Child from B12 Deficiency where she outlines the symptoms to be on the lookout for and offers up solutions for parents on how to best prevent this from happening in their children. In fact, Sally’s work with Vitamin B12 deficiency has made such a profound impact on the lives of real people that they released a feature film entitled Sally Pacholok about her life story in 2015 (coming soon to theaters–watch the trailer above!).

Listen in as Jimmy and Sally discuss what has been happening in her work since her last appearance on the podcast in 2010, why she decided to focus primarily on children’s health in her new book, why the mainstream medical establishment basically dismisses the Vitamin B12 deficiency connection to disease, the vital importance Vitamin B12 plays on brain development in kids, how Vitamin B12 deficiency may be directly contributing to autism and other issues on the autism spectrum, why an expectant mother needs to have proper Vitamin B12 levels to pass on to her baby, the feature film that was made about her life story, and so much more! We are honored and thrilled to have such an illustrious expert joining us on the show today. Soak this one in and ENJOY!

The rise of interest in the relationship between gut health and virtually every other aspect of overall health has been quite stark over the past couple of years. And for a Naples, Florida-based board-certified neurologist and perennial #1 New York Times bestselling author Dr. David Perlmutter (listen to our previous interviews with him in Episode 867, Episode 725, and on Ask The Low-Carb Experts Episode 51), the impact of the microbiome on the brain is indelibly connected. You probably know him well for his focus on the dangers of consuming grains on your brain health with his recent runaway hit books Grain Brain: The Surprising Truth about Wheat, Carbs, and Sugar–Your Brain’s Silent Killers and The Grain Brain Cookbook: More Than 150 Life-Changing Gluten-Free Recipes to Transform Your Health. But now he’s back with a brand new book in 2015 zeroing in on this banding together of gut-brain health entitled Brain Maker: The Power of Gut Microbes to Heal and Protect Your Brain–for Life.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Perlmutter have a fascinating discussion of how the gut bacteria plays a critical role in brain health, the scientific relationship between poor gut health and issues like depression, mood disorders, and other cognitive disorders, why inflammation and bowel permeability develop in someone with poor gut health, the damaging effects that women having a C-section are putting on the future health of their babies, the devastating impact of overusing antibiotics on the human microbiome that leads to obesity, the key markers to look for demonstrating gut permeability, how fecal transplants can be helpful in treating infections as well as replenishing gut flora that’s been depleted, how reducing carbohydrates and consuming more probiotic foods is critical to reestablishing gut and brain health, why the foods you choose to consume are the biggest factor in revolutionizing brain health through the gut, the kind of fermented foods you should be eating in your low-carb diet, and so much more! If you’re just eating low-carb and thinking that’s enough to make every aspect of your health optimal, then you’ll want to hear what Dr. David Perlmutter has to say about enhancing your low-carb lifestyle to improve your health, especially in the brain, even more!

953: Harriet Brown Shows The Body Of Truth Behind Our Weight Obsession

Ask anyone what it takes to get healthy and very likely their first thought is to lose weight. It seems our culture over the past few decades has begun equating and quantifying health gain almost exclusively through the prism of weight loss. This movement didn’t sit too well for a science writer for The New York Times named Harriet Brown who regularly speaks on topics such as body image, food obsession, and eating disorders. In her research into these topics, she identified where these ideas came from that made having extra body fat the last acceptable form of societal discrimination there is and what can be done to change this mindset hellbent on making weight and health interchangeable. She’s put all of that into a compelling new 2015 book entitled Body of Truth: How Science, History, and Culture Drive Our Obsession with Weight–and What We Can Do about It.

Listen in as Jimmy and Harriet discuss why “fat” has become a four-letter word in our culture, why there is such an obsession about weight where people become desperate to lose it, the people who benefit the most from keeping us fat and telling us we’re unhealthy, the four big lies we’ve been told about weight and health, the role Big Pharma is playing in creating confusion about this issue, the impact these behind-the-scenes shenanigans are having on virtually everyone everyday, why all the fad diets that are being offered as the answer may not be what people want or need, the damage we are causing our bodies by the constant weight fluctuations up and down, the bright side of shifting away from being weight-focused to health-focused, and a whole lot more. If you or someone you love is struggling with thinking their self-worth is found in that number on the scale, this you won’t want to miss what Harriet Brown shares in this compelling and controversial interview today!

952: Sally Pacholok Says Vitamin B12 Deficiency Impacting Child Brain Development

The state of modern health is in shambles and everyone knows it. While there is so much attention placed on this diet or that diet as a means of fixing this problem, it’s a much more complicated issue than simply the food you eat. Embracing real food certainly provides you with the proper nutrients your body needs to function optimally, but there are unintended consequences to health when people don’t get certain micronutrients like Vitamin B12 into their body. This has been the passion of nearly three decades of work by a Shelby, Michigan-based ER nurse and paramedic named Sally M. Pacholok, RN (listen to her previous interview sharing about her book Could It Be B12?: An Epidemic of Misdiagnoses on the podcast way back in Episode 411).

Sally herself was diagnosed herself with Vitamin B12 deficiency after doctors failed to properly identify her condition. That’s what started her on a rebellious mission to share with the whole world about the impact this is having on people. What she began to notice over the years of observing patients was a significant lack of this one micronutrient was leading to some rather profound issues with children beginning in the womb and all the way through adolescence and their brain development. That’s why she decided to write a new book in 2015 detailing this unspoken health concern in our kids (and adults too!) entitled What’s Wrong with My Child?: From Neurological and Developmental Disabilities to Autism…How to Protect Your Child from B12 Deficiency where she outlines the symptoms to be on the lookout for and offers up solutions for parents on how to best prevent this from happening in their children. In fact, Sally’s work with Vitamin B12 deficiency has made such a profound impact on the lives of real people that they released a feature film entitled Sally Pacholok about her life story in 2015 (coming soon to theaters–watch the trailer above!).

Listen in as Jimmy and Sally discuss what has been happening in her work since her last appearance on the podcast in 2010, why she decided to focus primarily on children’s health in her new book, why the mainstream medical establishment basically dismisses the Vitamin B12 deficiency connection to disease, the vital importance Vitamin B12 plays on brain development in kids, how Vitamin B12 deficiency may be directly contributing to autism and other issues on the autism spectrum, why an expectant mother needs to have proper Vitamin B12 levels to pass on to her baby, the feature film that was made about her life story, and so much more! We are honored and thrilled to have such an illustrious expert joining us on the show today. Soak this one in and ENJOY!

956: David Gillespie Says The Time Has Come For People To Eat Real Food Again

Screen Shot 2015-05-03 at 7.15.30 AM

We live in an incredibly strange world these days when the food supply has become so bastardized that we have to use a qualifier like “real” to describe what we mean by the word “food.” But it’s undeniable that the further and further away from real food we have gotten over the past few decades, the more and more obesity and chronic disease has taken hold impacting tens of millions of people worldwide. This is something that has become greatly concerning to a Brisbane, Australia-based consumer health advocate named David Gillespie (listen to Jimmy’s previous interviews with David on the podcast in Episode 761, Episode 592, and Episode 219).

David has watched how the food companies have devised a clever plan to replace the most expensive real food ingredients with cheaper, industrialized foods comprised of mainly sugar, vegetable oils, and processed grains and promote them to the public as healthy with the blessing of the major health organizations. He’s written a brand new book about this topic entitled Eat Real Food: The Only Solution To Permanent Weight-Loss And Disease Prevention (currently only available in paper form in Australia, but the e-book version is available for download in the United States). Listen in as Jimmy and David have a compelling conversation about how the food supply has become changed so radically and what we can do to turn things around by switching back to real food again for the sake of our weight and health.

955: Nicolette Hahn Niman Has Dedicated Her Life To Defending Sustainable Beef

Beef has been under assault in recent years as a primary culprit in both global warming and health decline. But the only problem with these public perceptions of cattle is that they are dead wrong. For an environmental lawyer turned rancher named Nicolette Hahn Niman, who just happens to be a longtime vegetarian, says none of the arguments made against red meat from an environmental or public health perspective are valid. She’s written a new book about it called Defending Beef: The Case for Sustainable Meat Production to make a compelling argument for responding to these charges against meat.

Listen in as Jimmy and Nicolette talk about why people believe cattle are bad for the Earth and their health, how livestock actually contribute to the ecosystem making the land better off, why small-scale farms producing grass-fed meats can and should become the primary basis for the American food supply, how factory farming has caused damage to animal, the environment, and the humans that consume the meats produced by them, why none of the claims about beef on health have been shown to be true, how the popular notion that it takes more water to create a pound of meat is just plain wrong, how the human diet has changed so radically in just the past century, and how real sustainability in the food supply is the wave of the future of human survival.
