How problematic really is the radiation emitted by our cell phones, cell phone towers, & wifi networks? Brandon LaGreca, author of "Cancer and EMF Radiation," helps us understand the consequences of radiation exposure from non-native electromagnetic fields (EMFs) like that which comes from these sources, compact fluorescent lightbulbs, our electronic devices, & more.

Among other things, Brandon explains how EMFs can be measured, how they suppress melatonin production, and how magnesium protects our cells from EMF damage. He also gives concrete tips for lessening the risk and lowering our EMF exposure in the day to day.

The Aboriginal culture is one of the earth's oldest. What did these indigenous people eat to survive over 60,000 years in the harsh climate of Australia? Australian author John Newton explores this subject in his book "The Oldest Foods on Earth."

His own curiosity got piqued when he tried kangaroo for the first time. It dawned on him that it was actually the first time he had ever knowingly consumed a native Australian food. That moment led to his interest in, and advocacy for local, traditional foods.  

Today, John shares with us some of the stories behind his books, which describe the history of traditional foods and recipes, along with resources for finding these foods. He also discusses our penchant for foreign "super foods" over foods closer to home, insights into the complicated relationship between indigenous people in Australia and European Australians, and the growing movement to embrace indigenous food worldwide.

Have you ever wondered what life is really like on a farm? What does it take to run a farm? The romantic allure of fresh air, a slower pace, and ethically sustainable foods make farm life appealing, but it honestly takes a lot of hard work and sacrifice.  

Today, Paul Grieve of Primal Pastures, a regenerative farm in Southern California, offers insights into the realities of running a farm and walks us through a day-in-the-life of a small farmer, sharing some of his early struggles and how he overcame them. Paul also explains why balance is key--how farms need to be not only economically and ecologically sustainable, but also socially sustainable for the communities they serve and the families that run them. If you haven’t visited a local farm yet, this conversation may inspire you to do just that!

Weight loss is often on the mind, even for those who "eat right." Today, Sally Fallon Morell, author, real food advocate, and the president of the Weston A. Price Foundation, offers ideas for how to best nourish ourselves to maintain a healthy weight and mind. As she reviews the summer Wise Traditions journal, Sally highlights topics such as the keto diet, coconut oil as a food to boost memory, and how to build up good bacteria in our bodies to fight infectious diseases. She also celebrates dietary traditions in the Ukraine--such as  consuming organ meats and raw dairy--and looks at trends in the U.S. (particularly for how we nourish our children) that are troubling.
