#104, HOW TO LIVE with Professor Robert Thomas

The Doctor's Kitchen Podcast

Professor Robert Thomas is back on the podcast talking about his incredible new book, How to Live.I’ve recommended his previous books that have focused on the topic of cancer such as “Keep Healthy After Cancer”, but this new book appears to cover every FAQ I’ve come across throughout the years of lecturing, speaking and demoing across the country and internationally.I highly recommend this read. With over 500 references in the back, but explained in plain language in the text, Prof has really created a book that is super engaging and cuts through the noise. But it also tackles some of the most controversial topics in an open minded manner which is incredibly useful in todays misinformation environment. On Today’s podcast you will learn about:Toxins in foodChemicals in household productsHormone disruption and what Toxic Load refers toMilk and cancerXenoestrogens, what they refer and how to avoid themEMF and whether there is evidence of harmThe beauty and utility of colourful foodWhy the gut is central to health and wellbeingTips and actions for you to take today to Live BetterAs a reminder, Professor Robert Thomas is a Consultant Oncologist at Bedford and Addenbrooke’s Hospitals, a clinical teacher at Cambridge University and visiting Professor of Sports and nutritional science at the University of Bedfordshire. He is lead of a Lifestyle and Cancer Research Unit, and is also medical advisor to the website Cancernet.co.uk. Through his amazing work - Prof Robert Thomas has previously been awarded The British Oncology Association’s “Oncologist of the Year” and The Royal College of Radiologist medal.Check out The Doctor's Kitchen website for full show notes and social media links for this and all other podcast episodes See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

BONUS EPISODE Lifestyle and Long Covid with Professor Robert Thomas

The Doctor's Kitchen Podcast

Professor Robert Thomas is back on the podcast talking about all things to do with Long COVID and some preliminary results from the UK’s only Covid nutrition intervention trial - The Phyto V study. A randomised double blind placebo controlled trial evaluating the influence of a phytochemical rich whole foods capsule plus a probiotic capsule on clinical outcomes among individuals with covid-19 viral infection. The hypothesis for this study is that starting a nutritional intervention in covid-19 positive patients displaying symptoms could shorten the severity or duration of illness. This may or may not have an impact on Long Covid and there are some anecdotes of benefit, however we can’t say for certain whether it’s useful for everyone.What polyphenols were included in the supplement I hear you ask? The researchers used ones that show promise in other viral illnesses and are found in common foods including: The flavanone polyphenol hesperetin found in citrus fruits; the Anthraquinone derivative aloe emodin found in Aloe Vera; Quercetin, a flavonoid found in, onions, apple, pomegranate and citrus fruits; Apigenin a polyphenol found in parsley, chamomile tea and fruit. Curcumin curcuminoids found in turmeric; ellagic acid found in pomegranate.As a reminder, Professor Robert Thomas is a Consultant Oncologist at Bedford and Addenbrooke’s Hospitals, a clinical teacher at Cambridge University and visiting Professor of Sports and nutritional science at the University of Bedfordshire. He is lead of a Lifestyle and Cancer Research Unit, and is also medical advisor to the website Cancernet.co.uk. Through his amazing work - Prof Robert Thomas has previously been awarded The British Oncology Association’s “Oncologist of the Year” and The Royal College of Radiologist medal. On Today’s podcast you will learn :About the details of the study that is yet to be publishedThe theory behind using a probiotic and a nutrient dense supplementThe tips for covid that are evidence based which could reduce severityThe new study looking at how to potentially enhance the antibody response of the immune system from the vaccine Rather than to try and demonstrate the need for a supplement, what prof hopes to show is that using a polyphenol rich diet may be beneficial to prevent prolonged covid symptoms. The details for the trial and other trials that professor mentions are on theDoctorskitchen.com podcast show notes. We’re doing another podcast dedicated to Robert's new book “How to Live” which I can’t recommend enough, but for that I think it needs its own distinct episode.Please do enjoy this conversation with Professor Robert Thomas and do check out The Doctor's Kitchen website for full show notes on this and all other episodes See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
