Credibility Of Research Studies We See On The News
We’re talking with Dr. Jonny Bowden today about the credibility of the research studies we see constantly in the news. It seems every health article cites a study like “Bacon causes heart disease” or the numerous studies on COVID. How do we know what to believe? Dr. Bowden heard a study on the news this morning, “It’s safer to fly on airplanes than go to the grocery store.” The study was done by the airlines! It doesn’t mean that it’s not valid, but they do have something to gain. When you pay for a study, you’re 5Xs likely to get the results you want.
You want to look at the study and who did it. Were there phases to the study, i.e. Phase one, two & three? How many people participated? The vast majority of drug studies are done by Big Pharma. Studies are like diamonds, some are fake, some real. Have a healthy skepticism when looking at these studies and do your own research. Also, listen to the podcast to hear what Dr. Bowden has to say about holiday eating! It’s great advice and something you can use every day!

Sunwarrior and Nutrigenomics
Dr. Jen Myers talks about Nutrigenomic Testing. It’s a way to look at our cells and genes and find out if we have any glitches in our DNA that may cause us to have issues with nutrition and weight. It looks at your nutritional pathways. Do you utilize nutrients effectively? She says that more than 75% have a significant genetic issue with nutritional pathways and converting certain nutrients. For instance, some can’t absorb folic acid normally, and we need that for our “gasoline” to run our system.
Dr. Myers says don’t wait until you have a health issue to take a nutrigenomics test. Would you wait for your car to run out of oil? Everyone should have this test to know which vitamins to take. The number one reason people use supplements is to feel better. What if you could know exactly what your body needed? It’s just a cheek swab to get the results.
