Confused about nutrition? This podcast episode is a great place to get a handle on an approach to eating that is sensible and satisfying, with no need for deprivation or fad dieting. In today's discussion, Sally Fallon Morell, the President of the Weston A. Price Foundation, explains how eating whole, real, natural foods, as our ancestors did, will nourish us in body and soul. She points to principles based on Dr. Price's research of traditional diets around the world. We can enjoy the same nutrient-dense food that they did, back then.

For years we've seen cholesterol and fat as enemies to our health. Research scientist Stephanie Seneff makes it clear that we've been looking in the wrong direction. Because of her husband's diagnosis of heart disease, she began investigating the root cause of the condition. In the process, she found that dietary deficiencies and environmental toxins were the real problem. And that the statins that doctors were prescribing were harming, rather than helping patients. (Statins have been linked to many conditions, including those we associate with aging: cataracts, diabetes, hair loss, and arthritis, for example.) She also discovered that glyphosate, the active ingredient in the herbicide Round Up, threatens everyone's well-being, and links it, among other things, to autism and Alzheimers, and, yes, to heart disease. What does Stephanie recommend for safeguarding your health? For starters, a diet of organic foods, rich in sulfur, and, surprisingly, fat and cholesterol.
