Brief Episode Summary:

“In a world of change, the learners shall inherit the earth, while the learned shall find themselves perfectly suited for a world that no longer exists.” - Eric Hoffer. In his book, Health in Flames, V. Thomas George, MD, MSc, asserts that Americans have been hearing the same old tired advice from doctors who preach the virtues of exercise and following a healthy diet for years. He acknowledges with complete honesty that it is not working. There is a better way! The quality of life on our planet for almost all of us, may depend on how we respond to what we discover in the book! 

Key Topics:

  • Chronic disease in the U.S. has been rising steadily, possessing the highest chronic disease burden among OECD countries, the highest rate of avoidable deaths and among the highest numbers of hospitalizations from preventable causes. What's the source, are we past the point of no return and how do we start making progress?
  • Consumerism on multiple levels is adversely impacting our world and its future, whether it's the food industry, the animal question, technology or the environment. In what way (s) is each contributing to the unfolding devastation? What would capitalism with a heart look like?
  • The goal of everyone and every pursuit is happiness. Why do we so easily conflate happiness and pleasure?
  • Why is a countries GNH (Gross National Happiness) a superior metric to its GDP (Gross Domestic Product)?
