084: The “global pandemic” no one is talking about

by | Mar 9, 2020 | 2 comments

70% of Americans are either overweight and obese (40% are obese).

Nearly 1 in 3 Americans is suffering with diabetes or prediabetes.

And 1 in every 4 deaths in this country are caused by heart disease.

According to my guest on today’s episode of The Dr. Gundry Podcast, all of these problems can be traced back to a single source: Food!

Dr. Mark Hyman is the head of strategy and innovation for the Cleveland Clinic Center for Functional Medicine, host of The Doctor’s Farmacy podcast, and the author of a brand-new book, Food Fix: How to Save Our Health, Our Economy, Our Communities, and Our Planet — One Bite at a Time.

We talk about how and why our health problems are so connected to the food we eat, the greedy players at the root of the problems, and the best ways to take back control of our food and health.

So join us — you’ll be blown away by what Dr. Hyman has discovered.

In this episode, you’ll learn:

  • The global pandemic NO ONE is talking about (hint: it’s not coronavirus) (3:10)
  • What the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics is hiding (and why you can’t even take photos at their convention) (4:45)
  • Why it’s cheaper for companies to make soda than bottled water (7:50)
  • Which former presidential candidate lobbied for PIZZA to be considered a vegetable (12:15)
  • The one simple change that could delay the worst effects of climate change for 20 years (16:15)
  • Why THIS common farming practice is actually an “uncontrolled experiment” on the U.S. population (21:10)
  • The common American food that’s making kids’ brains SHRINK by 10% (and may even lower their IQ by 7 points!) (24:55)
  • How changing this one thing for juvenile delinquents resulted in a 100% reduction in suicide (26:00)
  • Why asking yourself this one simple question every time you open the refrigerator can help you significantly reduce food waste (31:30)
  • Why mold on your food is actually a GOOD sign (38:45)
  • The best “drug” for treating the coronavirus (hint: it’s readily available and it doesn’t cost $3,200) (43:30)
