Why You Should Avoid Sweet Fat
Many of us were taught that eating dietary fat makes us fat and leads to heart disease. This assumption has been catastrophic for our health. In fact, fats are essential for optimal health, and saturated fat, specifically, is not the boogeyman we once thought. We know now that there is no monolithic saturated fat. There are many saturated fats, each with its own effects. The saturated fat in coconut, for instance is different from the saturated fat in butter.In this mini-episode, Dr. Hyman talks with neurologist Dr. David Perlmutter about how saturated fat came to get such a bad rap. They dive into many of the ways the right saturated fats are beneficial to your health and discuss why, what Dr. Hyman calls â€œsweet fat,â€ is so harmful.To hear Dr. Hymanâ€™s full length interview with Dr. David Perlmutter please visit https://DrMarkHyman.lnk.to/DrDavidPerlmutter

How Our Food System Acts as an Invisible Form of Oppression
We know all too well the visible forms of racism in our society. Less visible, however, is how our food system acts as the deadliest weapon used against the poor and minoritiesâ€” keeping them poor, sick and fat, hijacking their brains and biology.The science is clearâ€”our processed, sugary, starchy diet is the single biggest cause of disease and deathâ€”type 2 diabetes, obesity, heart disease, stroke, high blood pressure, cancer, and even dementia. And your zip code is more important than your genetic code in determining your risk of disease and death. If you are African American you are 80% more likely to be diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, over 4 times as likely to have kidney failure, and 3.5 times as likely to suffer amputations as whites. Iâ€™ve explored these topics with a number of my guests on this podcast. This mini-episode of The Doctorâ€™s Farmacy includes portions of my past conversations on this podcast with president of Black Lives Matter for the area of Greater New York, Hawk Newsome, Columbia University and Teachers College researcher Pam Koch and award winning NIH funded investigator and practicing family physician, Dr. Sean Lucan.

How Do Stem Cells Heal?
Stem cells are a major player in the future of medicine. They have the potential to become many other types of tissueâ€”they are essentially like a smart-bomb that we can use to target a specific problem. But the magic doesnâ€™t stop there. Not only can stem cells home in on damaged cells and tissues, they then send signals to those damaged cells or tissues encouraging them to heal. As someone who is always trying to improve my own health, and since I want to live to be 120, I love to seek out the latest therapies and try them myself so I can truly understand the benefits and improve my longevity.27 years ago I had surgery for a ruptured disk and Iâ€™ve been plagued with issues from that as Iâ€™ve aged (which I know many of you can relate to); I was excited to try stem cell therapy as a treatment option for my own pain and mobility. So today on The Doctorâ€™s Farmacy podcast, Iâ€™m going to share my conversation with the very doctors I trusted to do my own stem cell makeover. Dr. Harry Adelson, Dr. Amy Killen, and Dr. Duckworth sat down with me at Docere Clinics in Park City, Utah to talk about regenerative medicine and what stem cell therapy can do for every part of the body from joints to hair and even our sex organs.Learn more about Dr. Adelsonâ€™s work by visiting https://docereclinics.comLearn more about Dr. Killenâ€™s work by visiting https://doceremedical.com
