Your Go-To Reference Guide For Evidence-Based Health Info

As big as health as a topic is today, it is often hard to sift out the fake from the real. Every second person calls himself or herself a health and wellness expert and spews out advice. Which is why a podcast series by renowned author and co-director of the California Center for Functional Medicine Chris Kesser gains credence. Chris is considered to be one of the most influential names in health and fitness today and has been featured in several magazines and TV shows.

The podcast is an extension of his website that was created as a go-to destination for evidence-based health information. Just like the website does, the podcast episodes investigate common health misconceptions, debunks long-held theories, and provides a whole host of advice and help to those looking for information on common ailments and diseases.

Particularly enriching are episodes that look at diet and nutrition, such as the one that argues about what the Lancet got wrong about global diet patterns. Another one on healthy fat for the guts warns its listeners to not blindly trust manipulative studies that imply fats harm gut health.

Chris speaks to experts in the podcast, gleans out information and tips from them, and presents his own analysis of the issue at hand as well. The overall effect is one of a good doctor sitting down patiently to explain all the queries you might ever have about an illness or a disease. Which is why it makes sense to bookmark this podcast as an anytime health reference guide.
