    "So I also like to really highlight even to people who don't necessarily think they have this innovative entrepreneur or problem solving ability. Every human being had to do this the first day that you were on lockdown, you know, mothers, fathers, children had to figure out what they were going to do with their limited resources in their new world."

    "To make a substantial change, you have to go into what's known as cocooning. You actually have to go through almost a mourning period for what you did accomplish running that company. What did you leave behind? And by necessity, you have to spend some time alone, particularly coming out of that experience of people, people, people coming at you. With that in mind, it is really important to get into nature."

    "There's a certain amount of courage that is needed to move forward to be useful with people."

    DEXA Scans: What They Are, and Why You Should Get One with Nick Holt

    DEXA Scans: What They Are, and Why You Should Get One with Nick Holt

    In this week's episode, we talk with Nick Holt, a passionate health coach and personal trainer, about the ins and outs of DEXA scans. These scans, Nick explains, are not just for measuring body fat and bone health (which is important to keep an eye on as we age), but are also vital for understanding overall metabolic health.

    Additionally, Nick shares insights on the difference between subcutaneous and visceral fat, emphasizing the health implications of each. We also explore the significant role of muscle mass in our bodies, not just for physical strength and function, but also for metabolic health and glucose regulation.

    “I think it's a powerful tool to see how your training is going and if you're on the right track or if you need to change or modify anything which gets into the muscle mass conversation too, which is just as important for metabolic health in addition to performance.”

    “So a lot of the guys that I'm working with, we're on sort of a 6 to 12 month cadence with the test. I think it's a really good idea to have it as sort of like a baseline test at first and then chart out sort of a goal 6 to 12 months later to try to hit either a body composition goal, or a lot of people use it for some of their female friends who have had some osteopenia, osteoporosis.”

    "Visceral fat, which is in and around your organs is really inflammatory and can be quite problematic. But subcutaneous fat, the stuff that's kind of in between muscle, the jiggly stuff that's soft, and maybe doesn't look as nice, but is pretty innocuous."

    Key Moments
    “But also one of the “clinical knowns” of aging is the pillar of inflammation. Inflammation is one of the 12 pillars of aging. And as we accumulate enough birthday candles to set our kitchens on fire, our bodies deal with inflammation less and less well, and that just contributes to this picture of cartilage wear, which is arthritis.”

    “Once you start wearing down your cartilage, it creates an inflammatory environment that we can measure in the joint fluid, which leads to more wear and tear and becomes a cycle. Before I go on with that, I want everybody listening to know that there are profound studies, however, that show that a lifetime of things like endurance running do not cause arthritis because you'll hear some very misled doctors say, ‘you better stop running and you're going to give yourself arthritis.’”

    “How can you create an anti-inflammatory lifestyle? Number one, I want to de-inflame your whole body by cutting out simple sugars and wasteful, simple carb foods. Right? Our bodies are not trash compactors. It matters what you put in them, especially if you want to get out of inflammatory pain.”

    “I used to be a whitewater rafter who did first descents with a team of women around the world. We did rivers that hadn't been done before and that kind of thing. I mean, it's cool to be first at things. When I was a firefighter, I wanted to be the first into the fire.”

    “There are some [awe] triggers for awe. And one of them is just vastness.”

    “Actually, turning your focus away from your self outward has been shown to be much better for your mental health. I'm not taking away from therapy or massages or anything, but it's worth saying that if we need to feel better, focusing outwardly is a valuable component of self-soothing.”

    David:
    Temperature regulation is not something that's talked about a lot, but honestly, it's no joke.

    Shyla:
    Well, I do think overall like to be more gender specific. I think it does affect women more. I mean, we get pregnant, we get birth. We have these huge hormonal fluctuations and then we're trying to work and we're trying to do it all. We're trying to be superwomen, right? Because that's what's expected in our modern world. And then our body, our nervous system is giving us clues that you're not okay.

    "Honestly, isn't that what happens? Right? You become an A-hole. Because you're so irritable. You don't even have patience for yourself. Like, like how far does the lack of sleep go in terms of what's even happening with our world today?"

    Using AI to Predict Death with Sune Lehmann

    Using AI to Predict Death with Sune Lehmann

    In this week’s episode, we welcome Sune Lehmann, a network and complexity scientist at the Technical University of Denmark. Sune shares insights into his revolutionary work using algorithms to predict health outcomes, income, and mortality, drawing on extensive datasets from Danish citizens. He emphasizes the power of viewing human lives as sequences of events, akin to language, and how this perspective can lead to groundbreaking predictions about individuals' futures. We also get into the ethical considerations and future implications of this research, highlighting the balance between predictive accuracy and the importance of shared risk in insurance. Additionally, he touches on the once-Danish-now-global phenomenon of cold water swimming, illustrating how this practice offers a unique sense of well-being and mental clarity.

    “From a certain perspective, human lives are sequences, right? You're born, you are seen by a doctor. They do some measurements and all of that information can be structured to create, let's say, the sentence of your life.

    And so what we did is that we took an enormous dataset and we used the same technology that lies underneath the AI large language models, and we built a kind of general model for human lives.”

    “That model, as long as you have training data, can really predict anything about humans. I mean, it might do things with kind of varying quality, but for the things that we've tested it, it performs better than any other algorithm that we can find.”

    “So lots of people have kind of contacted me saying let's let's use this for something that's actually meaningful and useful. And I think, you know, what's amazing about what we do is that we also model not just the medical data, but the data around the life that people live.”
