Now, on to our guest…
My guest this episode is Rhonda Perciavalle Patrick, Ph.D., who works with Dr. Bruce Ames, the 23rd most-cited scientist across ALL fields between 1973 and 1984 (!).
Dr. Patrick also conducts clinical trials, performed aging research at Salk Institute for Biological Studies, and did graduate research at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, where she focused on cancer, mitochondrial metabolism, and apoptosis.
What does that all mean? Time is precious, right? Long podcast needs to be worth it, right? Here you go…
Whether you want to extend life, inexpensively buy a stem-cell “insurance policy” (hint: related to the Tooth Fairy), or guard against cancer, she will have a surprise insight for you.
In this episode, we cover a lot:
- Are there simple methods for extending lifespan? What looks most promising?
- What are the easiest ways to minimize your risk of cancer?
- What are the dangers of taking certain common supplements? What’s worth it and what isn’t?
- How can diet change the expression of your genes? How can this can be passed on to offspring?
…and much more.
