Industrial seed oils are killing us. They act like toxins in the body, accumulate in our body fat, increase feelings of hunger, hamper the body’s ability to utilize stored energy, and contribute to chronic disease. Dr. Cate Shanahan is a board-certified family physician and the author of “Deep Nutrition" and "The Fat Burn Fix." Today, she identifies what she calls the "hateful eight" oils: canola, corn, cottonseed, sunflower, safflower, soy, grapeseed and rice bran. 

She explains how PUFAs (polyunsaturated fatty acids), in these industrial seed oils, cause inflammation and lead to a host of health problems. She offers insight on how to go about eliminating these oils from our diet and the benefits, such as increased energy and vitality, that we can expect as a result.

What can we learn from the French about how to cook, eat, and live? How is it that they eat such rich, creamy foods and yet remain so slim? Do they still include organ meats in the diet? What are their secrets for healthy cooking and living? Tania Teschke lived for three years in the Bordeaux region of France where she immersed herself in traditional French cuisine and culture. Her experience culminated in the well-researched book "The Bordeaux Kitchen."

Today, Tania shares lessons learned with us. She explains the "French paradox", their tips for cooking (like having the best equipment possible), how they spend time on the preparation and provenance of their meals, and, yes, how many still include organ meats in the diet. She also offers ideas for where to start when it comes to introducing liver into the family's diet and how to shape our own family's dietary and lifestyle habits.

Most supplements are synthetic and just plain don’t work as well for our bodies as the nutrients found in real food. Sally Fallon Morell, President of the Weston A. Price Foundation, explains why the fat-soluble vitamins, A, D, and K are especially important to find in real food. They are key to a healthy immune system and are critical for keen eyesight, optimal fertility, bone and skin health and more. She covers in detail why most supplements simply can’t achieve what real food can. Sally also reviews what’s behind our craving for sweets, problems with the Impossible Burger, and more.

Plastics pervade our lives. From water bottles, toys, food containers, cars, to our cars and clothing, plastic seems to be in everything and just about everywhere! We know that plastic particles pollute the ocean, but they also impact our individual health, as well.

Today, Dr. Anthony Jay from the Mayo Clinic explains the hormone-disrupting effects of plastic on the human body. He talks about its sources--leaching into our food from packaging, for example--and how it can lead to apathy, depression, hormonal dysfunction, and more. He offers ideas for how to minimize our exposure to it and how to detoxify from its buildup in the body.

Fats keep us satiated. They bolster our immune system and help lower inflammation. They protect the brain and help regulate hormone production and mood. They contain fat-soluble activators that are catalysts for mineral absorption. Whether you’re a fan of fats or just reintroducing them to your diet, you may still have questions about them. How much fat was in most traditional diets? And how much should be in our own, today? What kind of fats are best?

Sally Fallon Morell, president of the Weston A. Price Foundation, today explains what fats are best and how they work in the body. She places particular importance on animal fats and discusses how we can all benefit from upping our fat intake, as we review principle #7 of the 11 Wise Traditions principles.
