184. The problem with eating plants
Manage episode 343614099 series 2547012
Are plant defense chemicals real? Are they a problem for humans? Paul addresses these questions in today’s podcast along with why he believes they are harmful for many people at a molecular level.
A note from Paul: Throughout my training and practice as a physician I have come to one very disappointing conclusion: Western medicine isn’t helping people lead better lives. Now that I’ve realized this, I’ve become obsessed with understanding what makes us healthy or ill. I want to live the best life I can and I want to be able to share this knowledge with others so that they can do the same. This podcast is the result of my relentless search to understand the roots of chronic disease. If you want to know how to live the most radical life possible I hope you’ll join me on this journey.
