More and more people are diagnosed with cancer every day, including children. The rates of invasive cancer in the general population in the U.S. (and abroad) are alarming. Those who are diagnosed with it are faced with conventional treatments that seem to ravage the parts of the body that should be relatively healthy.
In today's episode, we focus on nutritional supports for those in the throes of cancer. And for those who are healthy today but want to avoid the disease down the line, we discuss foods that may help keep it at bay.
In this "fall journal highlights" episode, Sally Fallon Morell, the president of the Weston A. Price Foundation touches on the numerous factors that are damaging our bodies, including 5G technology. She also explores cancer support for children, homeopathy, and even GcMAF, a controversial, anti-cancer food.

Plant-based and delicious, coconut oil has become more and more popular in recent years. Studies point to its many beneficial properties which include boosting the immune system, decreasing inflammation, fighting heart disease, and more. If this is the case, why did the American Heart Association (AHA) issue a statement earlier this summer re-categorizing coconut oil as a bad fat?
Nutritional therapy practitioner Lindsea Willon discusses what is driving the AHA (hint: food politics is often more about money than our health) and she makes a case for why we can and should embrace coconut oil--and other natural, well-sourced saturated fats--in our diets.

Although conventional medicine may recommend a low-sodium diet, is this really the best for us? Low salt consumption has been linked to metabolic syndrome, insulin resistance, poor digestion, parasites, and even depression. Salt is critical for proper brain and body functionality.

You will gain a new appreciation for the role of salt in your diet and how it protects your health.

How easily we forget! Raw milk has been part of the human diet for thousands of years, yet only after a century of introducing pasteurization, many people think that the only way to consume milk is to pasteurize it first. Our raw milk heritage is getting lost. But thanks to farmers and activists who believe in the value of raw milk and who are brave enough to fight against the establishment, raw milk is coming back. From being legal in only 27 states in the 1990s, raw milk is now legal in all but 7 states and more people are consuming it every day.
In today's episode, Pete Kennedy, lawyer and defender of food freedom, explains the history of the raw milk movement, what's left to be done, and what we can do to be a part of it all!

In some circles, it seems that sustainable farming is on the rise. Farmers markets are growing more and more popular, and young people are volunteering to work on organic farms. But sales at farmers market are down, overall, and less than 2% of the population is directly responsible for growing our food in the U.S. So what is the truth of the matter: is sustainable, soulful farming here to stay or a pipe dream? It’s critical to our future, so how can we make it work? How do farmers balance making a profit with still being true to their core values: establishing farms that properly care for the land, the animals, and the customers?
Today we converse with Forrest Pritchard, farmer and author of “Growing Tomorrow: Behind The Scenes With 18 Sustainable Farmers Who Are Changing The Way We Eat.” We discuss the advantages and problems facing farming today, and what can each do to make tomorrow’s farming landscape more promising.
