Automatic TRANSCRIPT

Really been thinking recently about our relationship with food and how intimate of a relationship it is we think about intimate relationships being with you know the people in our lives significant other but food is a truly intimate relationship. Because we're taking something from the outside world in putting it into our bodies all right name one thing that's more impactful and intimate than that because as my guest today said food isn't just food. Food is information so what we're taking in from the outside world in the form of food is informing every single sell our DNA our jeans on what to do on how to express themselves on how to build proteins on how do move hormones and neural transmitters throughout our system to communicate cholesterol building and The transport of those things are liver function our brain function all of it is intimately impacted by every single by a food. We eat too big thing very powerful and this is something we come out of the womb. Knowing how to do we come out consuming. We come out ready to eat now for many of us. We have play as our first source of food You know mother's milk but today's system was a little bit different. Our society is different. There was a time. Things are shifting is a time. When mother's milk was pushed in science to be inadequate and formula was actually pushed as the ideal first food for babies. Now we've cleared up our misconceptions about that. We know that mother's milk is the most valuable thing for newborn babies but even soon thereafter we are bringing in different foods and thrive. Aleutian will be a wide variety of different food but again in recent years in recent culture that variety has begin to become more and more and more minimal and the impacts on. Our health has become a place where we're seeing disease and obesity at a place of epidemic proportions. And I think that a big part of this is just kind of if if I'm thinking about the way that I grew up I grew up in an environment where I didn't really know that there was a difference in the food that I ate. I didn't know that there was a difference between a fast food. Hamburger and a wild caught salmon or Broccoli or candy bar. I just thought it was stuff you eat and growing up in the environment that I did even in high school. We'd have a lunch line where there's like the meal of the day you got the mystery meat. You know what is it? I don't know but you know the lunch lady would be doling out preparing some stuff in the back. But it's largely you know processed foods from not the best sources most likely but predominantly most kids. I'd say nine out of ten kids are going through the fast food lines. Were getting our burgers getting our pizza. I say five days out of the School Week. Four days eating the little personal pizza and also get a pretzel with cheese. I don't really care too much for the Pretzel. I needed that cheese. I need that cheese Whiz hitter to dip my pizza in and that was my fuel for the day you know and maybe have a soda or juice or the Soda. Companies were actually on our school campus in highschool doling out and giving away samples of their new products whenever they come out. Search was one that hit when I was in high school. Right there was supposed to be this Energy drink slash soda. How on Earth are they able to come in to infiltrate our bodies and our minds of our students on a on a high school campus? Like that is wildly inappropriate. But the thing is if we're not aware we're really not aware because I just saw it as. Oh this is cool right. We got free samples one of the biggest drawing points for so many people. Especially if you're growing up impoverished. He is my favorite price which is free. If it's free. I'll have some of that right. And that's something that can fuel you get you to another day. But it's also potentially fuelling chronic illness because many of the programs that are designed to support people's health and wellness are actually a largely giving food from government subsidies and also giving access to highly processed foods. And so how do we break the cycle? How do we really figure out how to get healthy food into people's hands into their communities and that's why I'm so excited about this episode today to change the culture in our schools in our communities at large and this book and this project from our guest? Dr Mark Hyman is a total game changer. So I'm really excited to have him on today and just really quickly one of the things that I've learned about in recent years it's been easily over a decade that I've been really trying to help break down the misconceptions about dietary fat. But only recently in the last few years has medium chain triglycerides or mcat's become very popular and something that people are really striving to get a nutritive source of these mcat's and part of the reason is that medium trained Triglycerides have this really interesting ability to be able to cross the blood brain barrier into feed your brain cells. There's only a couple of dozen nutrients that have that ability of the hundreds even thousands of nutrients mini that. We still don't even know yet. Only only a few dozen have the ability to actually go into the VIP session in your brain via crossing over that blood brain barrier and feeding your brain cells as pretty frequent
