 EP 1,023B - What You Need to Know about the Politics of Food, Nutrition and Health | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: Unknown

For decades, Marion Nestle has been driving the conversation about food and nutrition. For decades, Marion Nestle has been driving the conversation about food and nutrition. From her prize-winning books like WHAT TO EAT and FOOD POLITICS to her blog by the same name, Nestle has laid out how the food industry’s focus on profit is often at odds with public health, and what one should eat given that distressing reality. In her new book, LET’S ASK MARION: WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THE POLITICS OF FOOD, NUTRITION, AND HEALTH, Nestle showcases her decades of thinking about food politics in 18 short essays that explore the ways food intersects with politics, culture, identity, social class, inequity, and power. The book covers personal dietary choices and nutrition, community issues like food safety and school food, and global matters like the worldwide food chain— which has shown weaknesses during COVID-19—and climate change. Let’s Ask Marion is a savvy and insightful question-and-answer collection that showcases the expertise of food politics powerhouse Marion Nestle in exchanges with environmental advocate Kerry Trueman. Marion joins Dr. Roizen today to talk about these queries. Among the questions Nestle addresses in the accessible, science-based style for which she’s known: Why does nutrition advice always seem to be changing? Are low-carb diets really better for us? Why don’t we demand a higher standard of food safety? Why do we waste so much food? Can we feed the world well? Can we stop agriculture from contributing to global warming?

 EP 1022B - Heart Attack Damage Reduced by Shielded Stem Cells | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: Unknown

Bioengineers and surgeons from Rice University and Baylor College of Medicine (BCM) have shown that shielding stem cells with a novel biomaterial improve the cells' ability to heal heart injuries caused by heart attacks. Bioengineers and surgeons from Rice University and Baylor College of Medicine (BCM) have shown that shielding stem cells with a novel biomaterial improve the cells' ability to heal heart injuries caused by heart attacks. In a study using rodents, a team led by Rice's Dr. Omid Veiseh and Baylor's Ravi Ghanta showed it could make capsules of wound-healing mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) and implant them next to wounded hearts using minimally invasive techniques. Within four weeks, heart-healing was 2.5 times greater in animals treated with shielded stem cells than those treated with nonshielded stem cells, the researchers found. Someone has a heart attack every 40 seconds in the United States. In each case, an artery that supplies blood to the heart becomes blocked and heart muscle tissue dies due to lack of blood. Hearts damaged by heart attacks pump less efficiently, and scar tissue from heart attack wounds can further reduce heart function. Dr. Omid Veiseh is on the show today to tell us more about these findings.  Want better health and nutrition?

Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is a spectrum of disease characterized by the accumulation of lipids in liver cells not associated with the consumption of alcohol. Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is a spectrum of disease characterized by the accumulation of lipids in liver cells not associated with the consumption of alcohol. It causes cellular dysfunction and, in some people, leads to non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH), fibrosis, and cirrhosis. Estimates show that 357 million people will have NASH globally by 2030. Because NASH symptoms are not obvious, it is often underdiagnosed and underreported. Federally Qualified Health Care (FQHC) centers and their staff of community-based healthcare providers play a critical role in meeting the primary healthcare needs of underserved populations and ensuring access to care. Part of the epidemiology of chronic diseases that are managed in the FQHC system also includes diabetes, hypertension, and obesity. Dr. Robert Gish, Medical Director, Hepatitis B Foundation, WILL discuss the burden of these diseases and the importance of early detection for liver diseases like NAFLD and NASH in a community health center setting. To learn more about liver diseases, check out this podcast from NASHNET, a global network of thought leaders dedicated to innovating NASH care delivery. Want better health and nutrition?
