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.

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.)

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.

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,

More about today’s show:

Structuring our diet so as to minimize our environmental footprint is baked into the nutrition narrative.

It’s why Dr. Shawn Baker says, “The best diet for the environment is the one that keeps you out of the hospital!”


The US healthcare system alone generates five times more greenhouse gasses (GHG) than animal agriculture does.

That wasn’t a typo: the healthcare sector adds significantly to air pollution, including acid rain, greenhouse gas emissions, smog formation and more.
So, if you care about the environment, a diet and lifestyle that help you avoid hospitalization is best!

Here are some of my favorite key moments in this conversation:

17:38 The environmental burden of the US healthcare sector
22:00 Low levels of carnitine
48:25 Is fiber actually healthy?
52:37 Headlines and health-risk warnings: relative vs. absolute risk

About Today's Show: 

Certain “longevity experts” talk about how mTOR is an initiator for cancer and other diseases, so in seeking to avoid these diseases, folks should strive to avoid mTOR activation.

Naturally, the conversation will then lean towards avoiding protein and eating more plant-based foods.

The problem with this narrative is that it’s only half the story: plant-derived foods can stimulate mTOR just like animal foods can.

This new video may clear up the confusion and help you better understand the loads of confusion about mTOR, protein, cancer and other diseases.

About Today's Show: 

New testing, aka the myDNAge test, reveals our “epigenetic aging clock” that’s been characterized by Dr. Steve Horvath. This test analyses methylation patterns on more than 2,000 gene regions.

So, while we’re all aging at the same chronological time, our biological age is variable based upon our diets and lifestyles.

In fact, Dr. Horvath recently published data showing how low-dose growth hormone DHEA combined with berberine can actually slow down biological aging.

Here’s the video review and link to the study:

We discuss more about:

-Age-associated inflammation or “inflammaging” (chronic, low-grade inflammation) as the reason why you age
-How this protocol enlarges the thymus gland, which has been shown to shrink with age
-DHEA and metformin as tools to slow down age-related changes in glucose metabolism

Personally, I’ve been a huge fan of both DHEA and berberine (which functions similarly to metformin) for a long time.

Key Timestamps: 

04:38 Some manufacturers are deceptive and substitute ingredients.

05:57 European materials have more active ingredient. Chinese ingredients tend to have less active ingredient and more water.

06:55 Moisture and heat accelerate degradation. Keep the desiccant in your supplement bottle.

07:33 New packaging is being designed that builds the desiccant into the plastic of the bottle/vial.

09:53 Humidity and temperature control are key in manufacturing quality.

10:47 There are about 1,000 supplement manufacturers in the US and the number seems to double every year.

11:40 The FDA is shutting down small garage style shops with the 483 inspections. 

13:25 Finished product testing, does not include every ingredient on an ongoing basis.

16:40 FDA requires that identification testing and content/quality testing be done on any new component coming into the manufacturing facility. It is also required to do a full assay of the product at least 3 lots/year.

20:30 Residual solvents used in the extraction process of herbs are detected in testing.

21:06 Magnesium stearate is used to reduce friction and heat in manufacturing. Magnesium stearate is the most common fatty acid on the planet.

21.38 Natural fat is used to lubricate high speed machines. Friction must be reduced.

23:46 Controlling humidity for an entire facility adds about $50,000 per month to the cost of production.

27:25 The alu alu blister packs are aluminum with nitrogen shot between the layers. There is no air or moisture with the product, which is sealed away from the aluminum by plastic.  

28:49 HDPE bottles are better than a box, but not much. Glass is good, but humid air is introduced when the lid is removed.

31:15 If you have a product that is clumping or shrinking in a capsule, moisture has invaded and likely less than label claim in potency.

34:36 The shelf life for supplements is 2 years from manufacture. With probiotics or unstable products, shelf life is about 18 months to 2 years. Overage is added to compensate for die off.

36:06 MCT oil powder will have less fat than MCT oil.

38:44 Daniel makes his own pre and post-workout supplement powders fresh every day. He uses nootropics and caffeine to pre-workout.

43:27 Daniel has been low carb for about 3 years. He has more energy for CrossFit and endurance activities.

Thomas Cowan, MD shares compelling evidence that ‘charged water’ drives peripheral circulation and the heart’s job is to actually slow this down.

This discussion is super fascinating (and may challange your biases). 

➢This episode is brought to you by Best Blue Light Blocking Glasses Avail BluBlox! http://bit.ly/32IuFXA

*Their new REMedy sleep mask is amazing!

Book: Human Heart, Cosmic Heart by Cowan

Cancer and new biology of water: https://amzn.to/2IpNVBi

04:38 Filtering your water leaves water unstructured and demineralized. It needs to be remineralized and placed in a vortex to be restructured.
08:05 In the 1920s Rudolph Steiner said that the heart does not pump the blood.
12:15 Blood goes slower as it proceeds through the arteries until it gets to the capillaries where it stops, shimmies and gets going again.
16:07 Your heart does not have the force you would need to push blood through your blood vessels.
20:07 The motive for movement is at the level of the capillaries.
03:39 There are 4 phases of water. The water in cells is in a gel phase.
24:46 The gel layer of your cells is always negatively charged, which means it has separated the charges. There are positive charges in the water inside the cell. The positive ions/protons repel each other and start the water flowing.
26:50 Water cannot go up a tube more than 33 feet before the pressure of the weight of the water is too heavy.
27:30 Xylem tubes in plants are lined with hydrophilic proteins that separate the charges, shifting fluid using the same method as your body uses to move blood up your veins.
28:20 A vein is a thin walled tube with hydrophilic surfaces that creates a gel layer.
29:12 Muscle contraction in the legs is not a primary mover, though it is a contributor.
30:24 Your heart stops the blood. Incoming flow hits the cavity of the left ventricle which contains a valve. The heart holds the blood back a few milliseconds, converts the laminar flow into a vortex.
32:12 Your heart participates in the movement of the blood, but not because of a pushing of the walls. Movement comes from the movement of the blood.
33:07 The heart is like a hydraulic ram.
33:45 The efficiency of the hydraulic ram is about 70%. Only 70% comes out each cycle. A pump must always work at 100% efficiency. The efficiency of the heart is 70%.
35:06 Congestive heart failure is when the blood stops moving forward and only a small percentage comes out.
35:17 Since the heart is not pumping, the problem in congestive heart failure is insufficient flow.
36:22 Hypertension and hypertrophy are not the disease, they are the compensation response and therapy.
37:50 Flow is increased with sunlight, direct contact with the earth, good diet, and increased exercise.
38:50 Earthing/grounding causes you to absorb negative ions, a sort of energy source.
41:44 Our ability to make gels is destabilized by the insults of modern life.
42:54 The vortex of blood created by your heart is like a tornado. Vortex is the creative form of life.
44:12 We ignore life force in today’s science.
50:41 Any plant takes water and structures it.
53:55 The structuring of water occurs naturally through the interaction of blood vessels and the natural energy sources that are freely available to us.
54:48 The flow through a hydrophilic tube increases when you place your hand upon it.
01:04:11 The traditional way to eat vegetables is wild and perennial.
01:16:42 Dr. Cowan’s favorite morning activity is going right out to the garden and spending hours there.
01:18:18 Dr. Cowan’s desert island nutrient is eggs.
01:18:58 Dr. Cowan’s elevator pitch is that any form of coercion (ie: going to school, paying taxes, getting vaccinated) is the opposite of freedom.

03:03 Steph has been doing keto since 2009. Her mother was going to die from glial blastoma cancer…but, with interventions like keto, she is still alive.
04:48 Steph is keto/carnivore. She is aware of the anti-nutrients in plant foods.
05:04 Steph had her clients use glucometers, track sleep and track digestive issues, starting long before it is popular.
05:59 Animal fats work better for her clients than plant fats.
06:47 She is the 200 grams of fat person. Increasing animal fats tended to increase ketones and her clients began to feel better.
08:06 Steph encourages her clients to avoid “fat bombs”. Instead they should add fat to bone broth, meat broth or fatty tea.
08:58 If you have an energy crisis, you should not be drinking coffee to get through your day. Steph has gotten thousands of people off coffee and they all have done better.
15:08 Steph used to be a pro vert skateboarder and had an accident with a disabling knee injury. She had 10 surgeries and was on crutches for 4 years. She didn’t skate for 18 years. She skates now, but adaptively due to her injuries.
20:01 Steph’s strategy is gym workouts, dietary measures, minimize stress, improve sleep quality and keto. Steph appreciates every physical gain.
21:10 Women need to get out of their head that they will get big bulky muscles.
21:59 You don’t need the gym. You can use body weight and calisthenics or things like it.
22:50 Work out with the posture of a ballerina to maximize gain.
23:38 Food entrains your circadian rhythm.
25:26 Fasting and keto often plays into the obsession to be thin.
28:51 It is important to address the issue that is prompting people to need to fast.
34:16 Steph coaches and has a course to teach people to do low carb/high fat the right way.
35:57 Steph’s desert island nutrient is liver. Everything you need to survive is in it. She eats it every day. Consuming kidney helps with histamine issues and leaky gut.

Save 15% on NED's hemp-derived sleep-enhancing CBD tincture derived from biodynamically grown Hemp.


Check out Bret's new book Glute Lab: https://amzn.to/359PwVI

Check out the video interview: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hx3F8IzBcMw

Key Takeaways: 

04:07 Bret invented the barbell hip thrust exercise, basically a pushup for the glutes.
05:05 Bret is on a quest for maximum understanding glutes, which lead him to a PhD in Sports Science.
08:09 Everyone has a weak muscle that does not respond well to training.
11:11 Glute activation is complicated and individual.
12:52 Published research on physiology is based upon averages.
15:57 Not every body was built to squat or deadlift or whatever, but there is a variation for you. If not, omit it. Pain inhibits muscle activation.
17:46 A study of 200 hips for hip flexion and range of motion showed that hip flexion range was 80 degrees and 140 degrees, a 60-degree spread. The hip extension spread was 5 degrees to 40 degrees.
20:21 Squatting deep is not a prerequisite for glute development.
24:51 Strengthened glutes result in increased activation by your body in movement.
28:41 Old healed injuries can still be perceived by the brain as a threat and pain can continue long after being healed.
29:47 Stretching and foam rolling, for the most part, works on the nervous system.
31:20 Visualization of the contraction of muscles is especially helpful in maintaining strength when recovering from an injury, by working on the nervous system.
32:45 You see better results when you visualize yourself in first person, not watching you do the movement.
50:32 You need a good strength coach who knows all the lifts to help you figure out your weak links.
51:33 No one hurts themselves with hip thrusts done properly.
55:25 In Bret’s experience, the gold standard coach is CSCS certification along with years of internship.
01:00:58 Your knowledge as a coach is a pie chart: 33% is experimental self-experience lifting/training, 33% comes from working with others from all walks of life, and 33% is reading, listening to podcasts, watching videos and attending conferences.
01:04:52 Men have better results by splitting leg day into 2 days: quad day with glutes and a hamstring day with glutes and interspersing this with 3 upper body days.
01:07:18 Women have better results with 3 full body days.
01:12:20 The hormone hypothesis (growth hormone, cortisol and testosterone) of weight lifting is pseudo-science.
01:14:08 Bret prefers dumb bells, body weight and bands for beginners over barbells.
01:16:35 Bret films new videos and writes new programs for his membership program every month.

Thomas O'Connor, MD, is an anabolic steroid and testosterone replacement therapy (HRT) expert.

He's the author of America on Steroids and in this video he discusses the good, bad and ugly when it comes to testosterone, steroids and steroid-like compounds, namely SARMS (selective androgen receptor modulators).

Since all of these compounds are widely used by millions of men and women, yet rarely talked about, it’s important that we all better understand how they impact the body, why users use them and how they feel when they’re cycling off them.

After decades of recommending the American Heart Association’s high-fiber, whole-grain–rich diet to his patients, Dr. Berry’s nutrition advice was causing him to gain weight and decrease his health.

His knees ached and he was on the path to developing metabolic syndrome, the very condition this “evidence-based” diet was supposed to prevent.

Two years ago, Dr. Berry went out on a limb and tried a meat-only (carnivore) diet. 

Although there are zero published human trials supporting this way of eating, Dr. Berry’s blood sugar markers dramatically improved.

In this show, Dr. Berry discusses more about:

- How chronic gut issues often disappear when on the carnivore diet
- How to go on carnivore and transition off easily
- Why Dr. Berry feels better at 50 than at 30
- Thyroid hormone optimization for keto dieters

About Today’s Show

Fasted- vs. fed-state exercise is a controversial topic amongst fitness and weight loss experts nowadays.

Check out the show notes:


Many folks find that exercising in a fasted state enhances fat loss and accelerates body composition changes.

But some experts say there’s really no additional fat loss benefit to fasted-state exercise—being in a calorie deficit matters most.

10 years ago, fitness celebrity Thomas DeLauer lost over 60 pounds and reclaimed his health from regular “fasted” exercise.

He’s biased in this respect, but he discusses some new science that may help you decide which path (fasted vs. fed exercise) is best for your health goals.

We also discuss:

- Targeted ketogenic dieting and carb cycling
- Tips to improve protein synthesis (muscle repair) in the post-workout period
- Preserving muscle mass by training while fasting (the hormones involved)

Upcoming eCourse: Autophagy Enhancer MasterClass: http://bit.ly/2VTEy12

Key Timestamps:

10:47 Powerlifting is its purest form is the squat, bench press, deadlift done for one rep as heavy as you can possibly handle. In competition, you get 3 attempts to do this in front of judges. There is a specific type of form and cues that must be followed.
13:35 People should learn powerlifting so they learn to do the major lifts correctly. A good training partner or bodybuilding coach can show you as well, but that is not common.
16:08 Powerlifting requires time to develop and get momentum. Learn what a pump is supposed to feel like. Learn to contract your muscles. Learn the movements. Then you may be ready to move into more powerlifting.
17:19 The progress at the start of powerlifting is exciting, but a base of muscle must be built. Accessory movement, like bicep curls, are beneficial in building smaller muscle groups.
19:08 To find a coach, go to a powerlifting meet. Inquire there for a power gym. You’ll learn by observing there as well.
20:22 90% of the training done is assistance exercises, and not just the squat, bench and deadlift.
22:40 It is crucial to take your time with your warmups. Strategically increase the weight by small amounts. Do a lot of assistance exercises.
23:53 When new lifters breathe, they do chest breaths. It bends the back. Breathe into the diaphragm or use nasal breathing.
26:33 If you overarch, many times your back will round over as you lift, creating a 2-part motion.
27:17 Powerlifting is all about going through a range of motion while maintaining a certain posture.
28:13 You want your first rep to look like your last rep on any given set, no matter how heavy it is. If the last rep is ugly, lower the load so it looks technically like the first rep.
29:34 If you are having difficulty executing full range of motion, do less range of motion. When prepping to brace, drive your hips forward and drive your sternum down, creating as much intra-abdominal pressure as possible to help maintain solid positioning.
31:26 There is great variation between body types and different lifters. If it doesn’t look right or feel right, try different strategies: different foot positions, different shoes.
32:50 You should try to be a professional in the gym. Look like you know how to lift. Execute the moves the best possible way you can. If you want to be great, your mind won’t be 10 to 20 years down the road. You can work at 60% of your 1 rep max and get great health benefits.
38:00 If you are going to be a little reckless and swing weights around to get the pump and get the mindset, be cautious and do it infrequently with light weight. Bouncing at a deadlift produces and immediate sheer on the back, where the weight pulls you down a bit and then you lift. It is not good for your back. It also does not reinforce proper mechanics.
39:27 Be a good role model. Be excited about the technique you use, not that you lift like an animal.
41:00 Powerlifting and bodybuilding are both effective for promoting health. People who do bodybuilding-type workouts tend to be able to do it into old age. In Olympic lifting and CrossFit, you tend to get hurt easier. Fewer old people do them.
42:15 Keep your form, keep your technique, and follow your deadlift to the ground, rather than let them drop to the floor.
45:55 Done strategically, increasing frequency of specific workouts can build a tremendous amount of strength…to a certain point. Powerlifting trains your nervous system.
50:29 The Slingshot was invented in response to a minor pec tear. With the bench shirt in mind, Mark eventually developed the Slingshot.
57:50 Mark made a deadlift suit that has straps like the Hip Circle. When you bend down to grab the bar, it feels like you’ll be launched through the ceiling. Many people squat poorly so Mark invented the Hip Circle.
63:48 Knee wraps take some of the tension off the knees for squats so you can overload a leg press or squat. They provide warmth and stability.
65:57 The Kratom is Mark’s newest product. He calls it a Mind Bullet. The plant, mitragene specioso, has been used to help people come off opioid addiction. It is a tea leaf that has been used for hundreds of years.
01:15:50 Specialty bars give you a different center of gravity and works different parts of your body. They can also give you the ability to lift while injured without further injury.
01:19:08 For gaining muscle and size in a short time, eat more and better-quality food and increase your frequency of certain movements to 2 to 3 times each week. If you have a lagging body part, go to 3 times a week.
01:20:51 Recovery is huge. Get enough sleep. Drink enough water.
01:21:33 Protocol for micro-dosing psilocybin mushrooms: You can take one small psilocybin no more than every 4th day.

According to some, weight loss is simply 2nd grade level math.

Burn more energy than you eat, and fat is lost.

Eat more energy than you burn, fat is gained—easy math, right?

In this new show, we review how nutrient sensing enzymes that detect “energy balance” are also influenced by a range of non-nutritive factors, like hormones, inflammation and even oxygen levels.

More About Today’s Show:

MCTs are a hot topic as of late.

You know, the ketone-promoting medium-chain triglyceride (MCT) fats that you likely used in your coffee this morning.

However, there’s another group in the MCT family that we should start paying closer attention to: monocarboxylate transporters.

Without these specialized transporters, exercise, fasting and the ketogenic diet would be, well, nearly impossible.

Today we discuss the specific ways we can “increase” the activity of these special cellular MCT transporters—potentially enhancing ketone use by our muscles, heart and brain.

This information may help you learn new ways to enhance the health benefits of fasting and make going keto easier.

About this show: 

Like it or not, we all lose muscle with age—which, honestly, kinda stinks.

And much of our metabolic rate and fat-burning potential depends on muscle.

Thus, strategies that can prevent age-related muscle loss are hot topics among scientists nowadays.

In fact, new research suggests that ketones have “anti-catabolic” effects in muscle—meaning: they may slow muscle loss.

This is attractive to us as we age, but it’s also important to consider if/when one has an elective procedure—say surgery—or has to travel or be sedentary.

Here’s a quick breakdown of the study and key takeaways:


All the best,
