I was really excited for this episode. After first hearing about the Blue-zones I knew I wanted to find out more. And who better to learn off than one of the resident doctors involved with one of the Blue Zones, Loma Linda.
If you are not familiar with the Blue Zones, these are the longest living populations on the planet. Some of which eat small amounts of meat others that eat no meat or animal products of any kind. I talk to Dr Renae about the differences the diet have on life expectancy as well as other key things the blue zone populations do to have such a long life. Not only do they live long, their quality of life is high too.
Dr Renae and I also speak about her upbringing, how to read scientific studies, her time working with Dr Greger as a moderator at nutrtionfacts.org and what else you can do to insure you have a high quality of life. After all, if there is tens of thousands of people living over 100, would you not want to learn how to "copy" them so you can too?
Please go check her out @drrenaethomas as she is highly knowledgable, well -spoken, fun and most importantly very passionate about helping people better understand preventive medicine.
