EP 94: WTH?!? Health in Flames: A doctors RX beyond diet and exercise, Dr. Vimal George
Dr. Eckel and Vimal George will be talking about Chronic disease as their main topic. Within this they will touch upon: – The rise of chronic disease even as infectious disease has declined. – How modern day employment often adversely affects health (sedentary jobs, long hours, minimal attention to diet due to time constraints, poor sleep and stress). – Other ways that consumerism adversely affects health (environmental degradation, engineering out the need for exercise by chasing convenience instead of happiness). – How any person can escape the toxic mix of factors that push people toward unhealthy living. – How society as a whole can also escape this toxic mix of factors by implementing a few sensible policies.
