The GeneFood Podcast

Many of us have found great benefit in building a personalized health regimen, but how much health and wellness information is too much? Should we tune into nutrition conversations, like this one, only for as long as we need to to learn what works for us, or is there a benefit to continually staying on the "cutting edge?"  In today's show, we discuss Orthorexia, a condition defined by unhealthy obsessions with health and wellness, and specifically food. People suffering from orthorexia take clean eating too far, transitioning a healthy instinct into an unhealthy obsession.  Later...

The GeneFood Podcast

Many of us had that “occasional” cocktail with a little more frequency during the past year. There is no doubt that alcohol is fun, but is it healthy?
