SHOW 212 – Wild Salmon
Tonight on the show we are discussing the wellbeing of the wild salmon. It’s a species we take for granted whether we eat fish or not. Nutritionists champion fish in the diet, but how often do any of us consider a fish like salmon foremost as an integral part of its own ecosystem? And do we ever consider ourselves individually responsible for endangering the wild salmon population?

SHOW 198 – The Microbiome
Did you think a healthy body is a squeaky clean and bacteria-free one? Think again! Our body is full of microscopic creatures and we don’t do well without them. the bacteria in our bodies move in mysterious ways. Beneficial bacteria are called probiotics.

Did you buy coffee “to go” this morning? Or wrap up a sandwich for lunch? Have you been to the grocery store lately? This episode is all about what wraps up, protects and preserves our food.
