#75 – David Light: Zantac recall due to cancer concerns – what you need to know

“We have to come to grasp the reality that there are problems in the medication system in generics, potentially even brand, and all sorts of holes that exist in how the system is now for medications. We want to be a part of that solution and work together to ensure that every patient is getting a high quality medication.” — David Light

#74 – Jason Fried: Optimizing efficiency and work-life balance

“People brag about how little sleep they get, and how much they work. I don’t understand that…if you really ask them about why they’re working so long, it’s not that there’s more work to do, it’s that there’s less time to do good work, because people’s days are broken into smaller and smaller and smaller chunks of time…And before you know it’s the end of the day and you’ve got nothing done even though you’ve been busy all day.” —Jason Fried

#73 – AMA #9: NAD & metformin, fat-burning zone, creatine, estrogenization of men, emergency kit for cold & flu, and more

“The sky is blue, and the trees are green; therefore, I should eat cyanide.” — Peter Attia on the type of brilliant logic people use to suggest you burn more calories while sleeping vs. exercising

#72 – Dan Harris: 10% happier – meditation, kindness, and compassion

“Mindfulness is the ability to know what’s happening in your head at any given moment without getting carried away by it.” — Dan Harris

#71 – Katherine Eban: Widespread fraud in the generic drug industry

“Generics are supposed to be this great leveler. It’s like the democratization of drugs that the rich and the poor alike can have access to for these great cures.

It’s a real great public health hope that has a very dark underbelly.” — Katherine Eban

#70 – David Sinclair, Ph.D.: How cellular reprogramming could slow our aging clock (and the latest research on NAD)

#69 – Ronesh Sinha, M.D.: Insights into the manifestation of metabolic disease in a patient population predisposed to metabolic syndrome, and what it teaches us more broadly

“The way we raise our kids early on might actually set a pattern for how much of an accelerated life, or how much of a stressed out nervous system they might have later on. . . a lot of the behavioral patterns that we’re instilling in our kids are kind of setting the foundation for insulin resistance and inflammation early on.” —Ronesh Sinha

#68 – Marty Makary, M.D.: The US healthcare system—why it’s broken, steps to fix it, and how to protect yourself

“We’re trying to empower people in the United States to say we need a competent and fair pricing system.” — Marty Makary

#67 – AMA #8: DNA tests, longevity genes, metformin, fasting markers, salt, inflammation, and more

“If you are genetically blessed to become a centenarian, the gift you got is that you have genes that delay your receipt of chronic disease by what appears to be about 20 years.” — Peter Attia

#66 – Vamsi Mootha, M.D.: Aging, type 2 diabetes, cancer, Alzheimer’s disease, and Parkinson’s disease – do all roads lead to mitochondria?

“We have 300 different forms of monogenic mitochondrial diseases. . .and these are terrible diseases and we need therapies for them. . .but it’s also our hope that studying some of them will provide insights into the common form of aging as well.” —Vamsi Mootha
