Some say soy is heart-healthy. Others consider it a food that is a perfect protein, making it an ideal meat substitute. Dr. Anthony Jay has a different perspective. He suggests that soy is problematic. Anthony has a Ph.D. in biochemistry and works at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota. He is also the author of “Estrogeneration.” He describes soy as an “estrogenic” food, meaning that it acts like estrogen in our bodies, which can lead to dysfunction and a number of ailments. In today’s episode, Anthony explains why there is so much conflicting information on soy and how to make sense of it all. He makes clear why we should care, guides us on how much—or rather, how little—we should consume, and describes in detail the cumulative effects of soy on our health.

We let our kids play with them, sleep with them next to our heads, and can’t seem to live without them. But cell phones just may be one of the most hazardous objects in our house. Our guest, Dr. George Carlo, a world-recognized medical scientist, tech expert, and the Chairman of the Science and Public Policy Institute, explains why. George is not an alarmist and yet today he does sound some alarm bells to wake us up to the dangers that radiation poses to our health--specifically the radiation emitted from our devices and wifi networks. George was featured in the recently released documentary “Generation Zapped.” In that movie, and on today’s show, George discusses how we got to where we are today, why the cell phone industry has chosen to ignore evidence that radiation damages us on a cellular level, and what we can do to protect ourselves from its effects.

Most of us believe that our dental health is directly related to how much we brush and floss. But what if there is more to it than that? The traditional groups that Dr. Weston A. Price visited so many years ago did not have wonderful dental hygiene, yet their teeth were perfectly straight and surprisingly free of decay. Their secret? Their diet! These populations were eating a diet devoid of processed foods, and extremely rich in minerals and fat-soluble vitamins A, D, and K.
On this episode, Dr. Steven Lin, the author of The Dental Diet, explains how to maintain a healthy smile, naturally. He covers how we need to increase vitamin and mineral consumption from the foods we eat, what foods to avoid that are destructive to our health, and how to breathe and hold the mouth properly. He also busts many common dental myths and replaces them with truth that we can apply, to enable vibrant dental health.

Farmer Paul Grieve, of Primal Pastures in Southern California peels back the curtain on how life on the farm affects our own lives. We all want to be healthy and eat real, nutrient-dense food. This becomes a reality when we begin cooperating with nature and regenerating the soil. When we help the land heal, we heal ourselves.
On today's episode, Paul describes what regenerative agriculture looks like and why it's important. It's healthy farming at its best--restoring the soil, the air quality, ground water, and wildlife, while at the same time providing nutrient-dense food for people.
He also talks about how challenging it is to come by. He describes how labels like "organic," "cage-free,""antibiotic-free," etc. don't tell the whole story. He explains why organic food costs producers and consumers more. In sum, he describes the how and why behind sustainable, regenerative agriculture and how it is worth the effort--since it benefits us, our children, and grandchildren.

"Cancer" is a word that should never be uttered in the same sentence with the word "child." But it is, and with increasing frequency. In 2018, it is estimated that 16,000 kids will be diagnosed with cancer. Today's episode is about how to best help these children through cancer treatment. Season Johnson's son, Kicker, was diagnosed with leukemia as a little boy, and Season supported him through his chemotherapy regimen with a combination of nutrient-dense foods and detoxification protocols. She observed the benefits he experienced and now she is on a mission to support and educate parents whose children have also been diagnosed with cancer.
Season, a nutritional therapy practitioner, is the founder of KICK CancER, an organization with a science-based, holistic approach to healing. Its focus is to educate and empower parents to shore up their children's health with dietary advice--emphasizing real, whole foods--and methods to support the health and quality of life of their children.
