Cancer researcher Eleanor Rogan, PhD, discusses the details about how your liver can transform your own hormones into cancer-causing compounds (AKA carcinogens).



Briefly, some of us have variable activities of important enzymes that metabolize estrogens in our liver.


Imbalances in these enzymes create “sticky estrogens” that can cause mutations in DNA which, over time, can lead to cancer.


Here are the full details:


Here are some important time stamps!


07:18 How estrogens become carcinogens

10:40 Higher levels of estrogen-DNA adducts in women with ovarian cancer

13:50 If your catechol-O-methyltransferase is not working well, your catechol estrogen can go on to become a quinone and react with DNA.

An exhausted immune system maybe to blame for severe COVID-19 disease states, says new research.

Biomarker data emerging from case reports suggest that immunosenescence (aged immune system) plays a role in the disease progression in those infected with COVID-19;

Since only 15% of subjects who test positive transition to this ‘severe’ disease state, we explore the hypothesis that perhaps immunosenescence is playing a roll.

Jeff Grimm is very versed on the topic of autophagy, longevity and cellular senescence particularly as it relates to immune health.

Normally eyes roll when senescence is mentioned, but with multiple reports coming out showing an age-related decline in immunity is linked with poor COVID-19 outcomes, it’s a timely conversation.

Today’s show is brought to you by Redmond Real Salt, hand-harvested and microplastic free salt:


In today’s show Jeff discusses science-based ways to get rid of these senescent (old) cells—which may help both longevity and immunity.

I know the words may be complex, but the conversation is well worth the listen and we have show notes to help you learn along the way.

Hope you enjoy this deep dive into immunity, longevity, autophagy and more,

Scientists at Duke University have been studying how other mammals like bats are seemingly unaffected by coronaviruses (including SARS-CoV).

**This audio was stream live and is un-edited**

Link to associated studies: https://bit.ly/2JlM7ZW

When infected by the same viruses that land humans into the ICU and onto a ventilator, bats mount an early and robust initial immune response but don’t have the ongoing, exaggerated pro-inflammatory response that’s often fatal to us.

Translation: bats have a unique way to throttle down their immunity after an initial burst.

Here’s a video that’ll explain more: https://bit.ly/2JlM7ZW

In humans with severe COVID-19 illness, the characteristic cytokine storm (exaggerated, pro-inflammatory response) is thought to be the driving factor behind respiratory and organ failure leading to poor outcomes and non-survival.

Here are two reasons why you should care about this animal research:

  • The immunological switch bats use to tame their inflammation is the NLRP3 inflammasome. This might sound familiar to you as ketones (BHB) have been shown to inhibit this signaling up.
  • The interferon response (the early initial immune burst that helps bats) is reduced in individuals with nutrient deficiencies (namely vitamins A and D) and in type 2 diabetes. (This is one of the reasons behind the recent push to take vitamins A and D.)

In this brief solo podcast we explore some of the published science and discuss how to incorporate these things into your lives.

After reading these recent pathology reports (which found extensive lung tissue damage even prior to the onset of any symptoms) I’ve become fascinated by this highly transmissible virus.

Check out the references and show notes: http://bit.ly/2QgMQzy

To help you better understand some oft overlooked details about this highly-transmissible virus and possibly better manage your risk, I’ve summarized this recently published research.

Keep in mind my physician friends in the trenches have informed me this SARS-Cov2 virus doesn’t discriminate--even otherwise healthy 30 somethings are affected and can have severe disease requiring significant ICU time.

That said, the published clinical characteristics show increased disease severity and mortality in older males and adults with cardiometabolic disease comorbidities.
If nothing else, I hope you find these findings interesting.

Stay healthy,

About Today's Show:

We hear various opinions online about how fasting impacts levels of your human growth hormone (HGH), thyroid and adrenals.

“Don’t fast if you have low-thyroid levels,” people say.

Well…what if your thyroid levels are out of whack because of inflammation, which could be reduced via fasting?

To help you better decide which, if any, intermittent or prolonged fasting plan is best for you, I put this video snippet together.

It’s from a Keto Summit Omaha 2002..more on that later.

Show Notes and Float Tank Science: http://bit.ly/2RBQ1CV

If there was a pill that reduced your stress, anxiety, blood pressure and feelings of burnout plus deepened your sleep, decreased your pain and shortened your learning time, would you take it?

What if this pill was also free of unwanted side effects and only cost approximately $170 per month?

If you captured the many benefits of float tanks into one pill, my guess is it would be the hottest-selling pill ever.

Float tanks, often referred to as a sensory deprivation tanks and formally known as restricted environmental stimulation therapy (REST), has been scientifically studied since 1959.

You’ve probably driven by a float center on your commute, right?

Well, in 2017, when I discovered that Navy SEALs regularly use float tanks to compress the time it takes to learn a new language—six weeks with floating vs. six months without floating—I’ve been very intrigued.

Today’s guest and floatation therapy expert Sean McCormick dives into the science and the best strategies to get the most mileage out of float tank usage.

You can benefit from learning about:

- How athletes and high performers use float tanks to visualize themselves succeeding
- How floating changes your brain waves, making you more suggestible to positive affirmations and self-talk
- A Swedish scientific study on best float tank practices
- How I use float tanks to deepen sleep before events

Enjoy floating,
