97: Young at Heart

97: Young at Heart

Vegan of 41 yrs, Dr. Joel Kahn is one of the world's top cardiologists and best selling authors. According to the CDC, about 610,000 Americans die from a heart attack EVERY YEAR. That’s one in every four deaths! Heart disease has also been rated as the leading cause of death for both men and women. In addition, every year about 735,000 Americans have a heart attack, and of these, 525,000 are first heart attacks, and 210,000 are repeated. What’s even more alarming? A lot of this can be prevented! In fact, did you know that some nations don't even have a word for "heart attack"? This is because heart disease is RARELY genetic, but rather a product of our lifestyles! Dr. Kahn mentions a study that was done in Sweden and the Netherlands with a sample size of 25,000 participants. Various questions were asked regarding the participants' lifestyle choices. Then another 20 years later, the analysts researched who was alive, who died, who had a heart attack, what kind of medical procedures were performed...

After the study they found that if you follow a few simple steps, you can absolutely avoid a heart attack about 85-90% of the time (only 3-4% of Americans meet this criteria!):

  • 1st: Don't smoke
  • 2nd: Men, your waistline is less than 40 inches, women, less than 35
  • 3rd: Walk at least 30 minutes per day
  • 4th: Drink 1-4 alcoholic drinks per week (Helps the blood flow. More than 7 is counter-productive)
  • 5th: Sleep more than 7 hours per night
  • 6th: Eat 5 or more servings of fruits or vegetables every day

96: Change Your Mindset

Dr. Kasey Johnson is a vegan, a mother, a chiropractor, and a badass babe! While she was training for her current career, she started adopting the principles of the Paleo and Ketogenic diets; compared to her dorm-style junkfood college days, this was a huge improvement! However, it was also just a stepping stone in her towards an even more positive goal of being vegan! After giving birth, she ended up with the extremely painful condition known as mastitis (inflammation of the breast tissue). After researching how meat and dairy cause inflamation, she cut out the animal products and saw immediate results!

95: Bro Science

95: Bro Science

Multi-sport enthusiast, Ryan Nelson talks all about his journey with sports and fitness. Ryan has always been active, but at one point, started realizing that he just wasn't losing that extra fat in his mid-section; then, almost immediately after removing dairy from his diet, he lost about 10 lbs in his midsection alone!
Being raised in Wyoming, Ryan had the typical "Bro" type attitude towards meat and hunting, and therefore had some aprehension towards the idea of a plant-based diet. However, after he started seeing almost immediate results, his old ideas were smashed.

Also, guys, did you know that on average, vegan men have higher levels of testosterone than non-vegan men? 😉

94: A Storyteller For The Animals

Ellen Ericksen, returning guest from Episode 88, dives a little deeper into the Del Mar Racetrack and exposes more of the hideous truths behind the business. With money being a key motivator, a lot of work is done to cover up what really happens on the track! Recently, there was some minor coverage for the death of horse, Bobby Abu Dhabi, but unfortunately rider Victor Espinoza has received much greater attention for his non-fatal injury. The last part of the podcast dives into the more widely known topic of Sea World.

Kaiser Permanente's Dr. Raymond Berdugo, and Chris Heslin talk about the implementation of whole food plant-based nutrition into the doctor's office!

  • "Of the top 15 causes of death, only one is NOT related to food, and that's accidents."
  • "Our number one killer in the world, noone ever has to die from!"
  • "We don't need animal protein. We don't need more protein at all. We need more energy; complex carbs in their whole form."
  • "Heart disease has now climbed to be not only the #1 killer in the US, but also the world."

Today's episode focusses on all things health! From prevention to termination and even reversal of some of the world's deadliest conditions, all by switching to plants (in their un-processed, original form)! Oh, and by the way, Plants Have Protein; you don't need to consume animals to bulk up at the gym!

In this episode she discusses some vegan travelling tips, along with advice on how to still leave room for compassion for YOURSELF as a vegan (many of us forget about that)!
