Essential contemporary perspective on human health

An essential contemporary perspective on human health. Dr. Dan’s presentations are keen and lucid, integrating peer-reviewed scientific evidence. His approach promises greater intelligibility, broader scope, and higher accuracy than other voices on the subject.

Best podcast ever

Dr. Dan is SO concise with his content and only talks about SCIENCE based information. Every episode is a topic I want to learn more about. They are short so I can listen to them while doing a simple short task, even though I find myself taking notes all the time. His analogies to explain how certain chemical reactions work help me make sense of the science jargon I am listening to. This podcast is by far the BEST content I have ever listened to.

Spot on

The editing on this podcast gives it a surreal effect that you are listening courtside to the man Dr Dan drop knowledge that is quite literally life changing.
