    #364: COVID 19: What No One's Telling You, with Ivor Cummins

    Since 2012 Ivor Cummins, The Fat Emperor, has been intensively researching the root causes of modern chronic disease. With an undeniable ability to detect contradictory science (and flat out lies) Ivor has correctly predicted so much of what has already happened during the pandemic and it appears he has a good idea of what’s still to come.  
    In this episode of Renegade Radio the author of the excellent book “Eat Rich, Live Long” gives us an absolute masterclass on getting and staying healthy during the pandemic (and beyond).  He also exposes so many of the lies we’ve been led to believe since March 2019.  
    Regardless of who you are, chances are you’re interested in protecting yourself and the people you love.  With that said, this incredible episode is for everyone.  Listen as we discuss:

    #360: A Masterclass in Health with Shawn Stevenson

    “4 TRILLION dollars was spent in the US healthcare system this past year and you can’t even prevent a f*cking cold?  We could be saving so many lives if the system was focused on health.”
    Shawn Stevenson is the creator and host of The Model Health Show.  Each week he releases a “masterclass” episode diving into a wide range of health-related topics.  He uncovers the very best health information in the world and helps people create their own unique model of health, happiness and success.

    Listen as we discuss:
    Why Shawn is grateful for the struggles 2020 has presented him.  [4:04] How does he personally handle the stress of the pandemic and everything else that has gone on this year?  [8:06] Is community and connection the real secret of the blue zones?  [12:05] Why we should question the methods we’ve been forced to follow during the pandemic.  [13:04] What we SHOULD be doing to protect ourselves against the virus instead of what we’re being forced to do.  [16:48] The number ONE thing that makes you susceptible to the virus.

[1:25:37] The incredible health benefits of coffee.  [1:28:54] Why what we’ve been led to believe about the pandemic is not what we should actually fear.  [1:31:35] This episode is brought to you by Belcampo.  Food quality matters, especially when it comes to the meat you eat!  Belcampo’s farms produce only the highest quality grass-fed, grass-finished meat.  Their beef, lamb, pork and poultry is certified organic and humanely raised on a climate positive farm.
