Inspired by Dr. Lagakos and his book The poor, misunderstood calorie and it’s chapter on nutrient partitioning I decided to take a look at it. This is a really interesting effect.
Different episode today. Just free-sharing my thoughts on 50 episodes.
I have written about trans fats before, but in this episode I wanted to focus more narrowly on a potential link between trans fats and aggression.
I have written about saturated fats before but there are still many dietary recommendation agencies that are obsessed with them and I cannot figure out why.
I just read a paper that changed many of my perceptions about intermittent fasting, which in the past I thought had no benefits in excess of or in lieu of calorie restriction. I may be totally wrong.
In this episode I discuss why I think open journals, open data, and maybe even open review are important if we want science to continue to progress.
This episode was a request from Al Boulley, who was curious about the effect of certain minerals on human health, and in this one I focused in on magnesium. Magnesium may have benefit for depression, anxiety, insulin sensitivity, glycemic control, and even testosterone.
This episode is a request from a fan of the site. They wanted to know whether arginine precursors may help with recovery by interacting with macrophages. This is a little bit heavier science than many of my episodes, but it was interesting to me and I hope it will be interesting to you too.
This episode is a special request from my good friend Jeff Jenkins. He is a dip user and was curious about the health effects of nicotine and so this episode is focused on that.
Before I start what is likely going to be one of my controversial episodes, I need to make it very clear that I love football. I played for a decade and coached for seven years. However, there is emerging evidence of a link between football and heart disease. On a more personal note, several of the men who have coached me at different points in my career have died from heart attacks. Take every effort you can to control the risk factors you can. Consult regularly with your physician, and make sure that you are working with him to control your blood pressure, your cholesterol, and everything else you can.
