This episode is brought to you by Rupa Health, Paleovalley, and Essentia. The leading cause of inflammation is a poor diet—specifically one rich in addictive starches and refined sugars that keep us eating more than we need to because they don't fill us up. This standard American diet (SAD) of refined flour and sugar is the gateway to insulin resistance, diabetes, and other metabolic issues, which cause rapid aging and chronic disease. In today's episode, I talk with Dhru Purohit, Gary Taubes, and Dr. Ronesh Sinha about why we need to ditch the high-starch diet if we want to improve our metabolism and reduce chronic disease. Dhru Purohit is a podcast host, serial entrepreneur, and investor in the health and wellness industry. His podcast, The Dhru Purohit Podcast, is a top 50 global health podcast with over 30 million unique downloads. His interviews focus on the inner workings of the brain and the body and feature the brightest minds in wellness, medicine, and mindset. ⁣Gary Taubes is an award-winning science and health journalist and cofounder and director of the Nutrition Science Initiative. He is the author of The Case Against Sugar, Why We Get Fat, Good Calories, Bad Calories, and The Case for Keto. Gary is a former staff writer for Discover and a correspondent for Science. He has written three cover articles on nutrition and health for The New York Times Magazine.

This year La Niña returns for the third consecutive winter, driving warmer-than-average temperatures for the Southwest and along the Gulf Coast and eastern seaboard, according to NOAA's U.S. Winter Outlook released today by the Climate Prediction Center — a division of the National Weather Service. Starting in December 2022 through February 2023, NOAA predicts drier-than-average conditions across the South with wetter-than-average conditions for areas of the Ohio Valley, Great Lakes, northern Rockies and Pacific Northwest. “The hardworking forecasters at NOAA's Climate Prediction Center produce timely and accurate seasonal outlooks and short-term forecasts year-round,” said Michael Farrar, Ph.D., director of the National Centers for Environmental Prediction. “NOAA's new supercomputers are enabling us to develop even better, more detailed forecast capabilities, which we'll be rolling out in the coming years.” NOAA forecasters, in collaboration with the National Integrated Drought Information System (NIDIS), continue to monitor extreme, ongoing drought conditions that have persisted in the Western U.S. since late 2020, as well as parts of the central U.S. where historic low-water conditions are currently present. “Drought conditions are now present across approximately 59% of the country, but parts of the Western U.S and southern Great Plains will continue to be the hardest hit this winter,” said Jon Gottschalck, chief, Operational Prediction Branch, NOAA's Climate Prediction Center. “With the La Niña climate pattern still in place, drought conditions may also expand to the Gulf Coast.” Temperature The greatest chance for warmer-than-average conditions are in western Alaska, and the Central Great Basin and Southwest extending through the Southern Plains. Warmer-than-average temperatures are also favored in the Southeastern U.S. and along the Atlantic coast. Below-normal temperatures are favored from the Pacific Northwest eastward to the western Great Lakes and the Alaska Panhandle. Precipitation Wetter-than-average conditions are most likely in western Alaska, the Pacific Northwest, northern Rockies, Great Lakes and Ohio Valley. The greatest chances for drier-than-average conditions are forecast in portions of California, the Southwest, the southern Rockies, southern Plains, Gulf Coast and much of the Southeast. The remainder of the U.S. falls into the category of equal chances for below-, near-, or above-average seasonal total precipitation. Drought Widespread extreme drought continues to persist across much of the West, the Great Basin, and the central-to-southern Great Plains. Drought is expected to impact the middle and lower Mississippi Valley this winter. Drought development is expected to occur across the South-central and Southeastern U.S., while drought conditions are expected to improve across the Northwestern U.S. over the coming months. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/carolinaweather/message

This episode is brought to you by Rupa Health and Athletic Greens.CoQ10 is a compound whose job is to help cells generate energy, so it's no surprise there are so many wonderful benefits to getting enough of this critical coenzyme. Although you can find it in supplement form, it is also naturally produced by the body. Unfortunately, however, as you age the production of CoQ10 declines. It also declines with chronic stress, toxin exposures, and certain medications. The decreased amount of CoQ10 in your cells contributes to the gradual loss of energy that most of us experience in our thirties and beyond. In today's episode of my series I'm calling Health Bites, I am talking all about coenzyme Q10, also known as CoQ10—what it is, what it can do for us, and how to ensure we are getting enough of this critical nutrient.This episode is brought to you by Rupa Health and Athletic Greens.Rupa Health is a place where Functional Medicine practitioners can access more than 2,000 specialty lab tests from over 20 labs like DUTCH, Vibrant America, Genova, and Great Plains.

The pendulum in American electoral politics never swung harder than the 1920s to 1930s. In the 1924 presidential election, Democrats lost every state outside the Jim Crow south and barely scraped together 25 percent of the popular vote. In less than 10 years, they built the New Deal Coalition, a tremendously powerful political force that included everyone from the KKK on one side to black communists on the other, with Great Plains populists, backcountry Jacksonians and multilingual urbanites in between. How do electoral coalitions that seem timeless breakdown and reform in the blink of an eye, and what can that tell us about our current political coalitions?To discuss how political realignment happens is today's guest Timothy Shenk, author of the book Realigners. In a history that runs from the drafting of the Constitution to 2022, Shenk discusses characters from James Madison and Charles Sumner to Phyllis Schlafly and Barack Obama. The result is a provocative reassessment of the people who built the electoral coalitions that defined American democracy―and a guide for a time when figures ranging from Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to MAGA-minded nationalists seek to turn radical dreams into political realities.

This episode is brought to you by Rupa Health, Paleovalley, and Beekeeper's Naturals. Environmental toxins can wreak havoc on your body. And our bodies can only handle so much. There is a threshold, and when it's passed, toxins can't effectively be processed out of the body and are left lingering. When our toxic load is maxed out we start to see symptoms and dysfunctions. In today's episode, I speak with Dr. Casey Means, Harriet Washington, and Maggie Ward about reducing your toxic exposure, the compounded effect of toxic exposures, and more. Dr. Casey Means is a Stanford-trained physician, Chief Medical Officer and cofounder of metabolic health company Levels, an associate editor of the International Journal of Disease Reversal and Prevention, and a lecturer at Stanford University. Her mission is to maximize human potential and reverse the epidemic of preventable chronic disease by empowering individuals with tools that can facilitate a deep understanding of our bodies and inform personalized and sustainable dietary and lifestyle choices.

This episode is brought to you by BiOptimizers, Rupa Health, and InsideTracker.If we want to age as well as possible, maintain function and strength, and stay independent as we age, there is a key area of our physiology that we need to pay attention to: muscle.Skeletal muscle is the currency of aging; it's an essential lever in maintaining optimal metabolic health, reducing body fat, and supporting longevity. And a major piece of building and maintaining muscle is protein consumption—which is often a controversial topic in the nutrition space.

This episode—which is Number 64—is all about the importance of temperate grasslands as habitat for birds.When we say “temperate grasslands,” we mean those generally occurring in the middle latitudes.Temperate grasslands exist in several parts of the world. Some of them cover vast areas. Here in North America, we have the Great Plains as a “great” example.The steppes of Mongolia and the Pampas of South America are similarly vast temperate grasslands.Many, many bird species around the world depend on such grasslands for food and breeding habitat. Among them are raptors, sparrows, blackbirds, larks, pipits, a bunch of South American species in the ovenbird family, Furnariidae… and the list goes on. But, unfortunately, temperate grasslands are also among the most threatened ecosystems on the planet. Many of the bird species that call them home are, not surprisingly, also in trouble.Today, we're going to dive into what makes temperate grasslands special, and why they're so important to birds. I'll give you several examples of bird species that depend on grassland habitats. And we'll also talk a bit about grassland conservation.

James Arthur began his journey with regenerative aquaculture as a teenager volunteering at the Nature Interpretive Center in Southern California, where he got first-hand experience with a steelhead trout breeding and hatchery program. For the past ten years, he lived aboard and sailed around the Pacific from San Francisco to Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands. Throughout that time, he's been on a mission visiting ocean aquaculture farms, vetting claims, lab testing seafood, and connecting the best-in-class aquaculture projects with farm-to-table restaurants in California. In 2020 he founded SEATOPIA, a gourmet seafood subscription box now delivering certified mercury-safe seafood, carbon-neutral, direct to homes nationwide. Through SEATOPIA, he is endeavoring to scale a truly regenerative seafood supply chain and empower health-conscious consumers to directly support innovative aquaculture projects producing some of the healthiest protein on the planet.This episode is brought to you by BiOptimizers, InsideTracker, and Rupa Health.Magnesium Breakthrough really stands out from the other magnesium supplements out there.

In the second of this 2-part series of The Response, we pick up where we left off in Episode 1 and continue our deep dive into how communities are responding to the growing abortion access crisis in the United States, sharing the stories of those impacted and highlighting a number of radical grassroots, mutual aid, and solidaristic efforts aimed at helping people access abortion in the places where it's currently outlawed or restricted.  Abortion access has always been limited here in the United States, but since Roe v. Wade was overturned in June of this year and the Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization decision held that the Constitution does not confer a right to abortion — things have gotten dramatically worse — especially in parts of the southern United States, the Great Plains, and parts of the midwest.  In the face of trigger laws banning and criminalizing abortion in many states — as well as state-sanctioned harassment and targeted campaigns against people seeking abortions — the centuries-old movement for reproductive rights and justice has only grown and strengthened. This movement takes many forms, and in the second part of this series we're going to explore mutual aid efforts focusing on medical abortion pills and emergency contraception.

Welcome to November 5, 2022 on the National Day Calendar. Today we celebrate standing out in a crowd and our National mammal.  The genetic trait that causes red hair is found in only two percent of the population, so those of us with natural red have no trouble standing out. If you have both red hair and blue eyes then you are in a 1 percent category and chances are you are also left handed. And while redheads have a reputation for being feisty and stubborn we are also natural born leaders. This may have more to do with getting picked on or singled out in life and learning quickly to defend ourselves. Which seems to have worked well for Carrot Top, Carol Burnett, Ron Howard and Lucille Ball. On National Love Your Red Hair Day celebrate this unique trait and the bonus of standing out in a crowd.   You may think of the majestic bison as existing only in the Great Plains. In fact they can be found in all 50 states. This is good news if you plan to see one today while celebrating National Play Outside Day, but be careful! Weighing in at nearly 2000 pounds they are the largest land mammal in North America. You should know that they can run almost 45 miles an hour and can jump nearly six vertical feet! Here in North Dakota their thick fur comes in handy for its insulation against the cold. The animal can be covered in snow that will not melt thanks to a coat that is ten times more hairy than cattle. Bison have played a central role in the livelihood of Native Americans and because of their impact on our culture and environment they are now protected as our National Mammal. On National Bison Day, we celebrate this essential part of our Nation's history.  I'm Anna Devere and I'm Marlo Anderson. Thanks for joining us as we Celebrate Every Day.

There were a lot of great ballads that originated in points south on the Great Plains and somehow made their way to North Dakota. Bismarck's renaissance man, George Will, collected folksongs from his father's seed company employees more than a century ago, and one of the first songs he reported was “The Texas Rangers.” The expansion of the range cattle industry was the context for the migration of many such ballads north.

This episode is brought to you by Rupa Health, ButcherBox, and InsideTracker.In Western culture, we've gained a negative view of aging. But in other cultures around the world, aging is celebrated and embraced. That's because we define difficult symptoms like aches and pains, cognitive decline, and so many others as “aging” when they're actually signs of dis-ease that can be prevented and often even reversed. Fortunately, there is much we can do to change the trajectory of aging starting at a young age, or at any age. In today's episode, I talk with Dr. David Sinclair, Dr. Frank Lipman, and Dan Buettner about all the ways to age better, from supplements to support mitochondria, to increasing muscle, to cultivating community, and more.Dr. David Sinclair is a professor in the Department of Genetics and codirector of the Paul F.

A healthy liver means your body stays healthy, you don't get sick, and you maintain plenty of energy. A fatty liver, on the other hand, has numerous repercussions including inflammation, which triggers insulin resistance and prediabetes, meaning your body deposits fat in your liver and organs, including your belly (called visceral fat). Fatty liver can also lead to more serious problems including high triglycerides, low HDL (“good” cholesterol), and high amounts of small LDL (dangerous cholesterol particles that can cause heart attacks).

This episode is brought to you by Rupa Health, BiOptimizers, and InsideTracker.Our relationships affect our health and happiness. The problem is that we're never taught how to seek, create, nurture, and assess our relationships the same way we do our careers and bank accounts. But the cost of bad relationships on ourselves and our society truly adds up. The relationships many of us grew up around and might consider “normal” are in fact dysfunctional, creating a negative cycle we often don't even realize we're in. So how can we find good love, create good relationships, and keep them? That's what today's conversation with Mia Lux is all about. Mia merges the playful and the profound—drawing on her experience as a start-up CEO, stand-up comedian, personal growth junkie, and recovering lawyer. For over 7 years, Mia has been an international host, comedian & facilitator, specializing in designing and facilitating top wellness/personal development experiences around the world. Now, Mia is channeling this in the name of love as the Co-Founder & CEO of La Vette, a radical new platform designed to rehumanize dating in the digital era.

This episode is brought to you by Rupa Health, InsideTracker, and Cozy Earth.If you've ever wondered if supplements are worthwhile or just create expensive urine, this is the podcast episode for you. While I wish it wasn't the case, I do believe we need supplements to make up for the nutrients we can no longer get through food alone. It's extra important to note, though, that not all supplements are created equal. And please keep in mind they're called “supplements” for a reason, not “replacements”—they are meant to supplement a healthy diet and lifestyle to provide the most impact.Today, I'm excited to take a deeper dive into this topic with one of my most trusted sources when it comes to nutrition and dietary research, Chris Kresser.

This episode contains mention of sexual assault. Kansas this week became the first U.S. state since the fall of Roe v. Wade to put the question of abortion directly to the electorate.The result was resounding. Voters chose overwhelmingly to preserve abortion rights, an outcome that could have important political reverberations for the rest of the country.Guest: Mitch Smith, a correspondent covering the Midwest and the Great Plains for The New York Times.Background reading: The defeat of the ballot measure in Kansas was the most tangible demonstration yet of a political backlash against the Supreme Court decision to overturn Roe.The result relied on a broad coalition of voters who turned out in huge numbers and crashed through party and geographic lines.For more information on today's episode, visit nytimes.com/thedaily.
