Around 2001, Dr. Cate Shanahan acquired a mysterious pain and inflammation in her knee, which her medical providers could not explain and even surgery could not fix. The pain sometimes made her febrile and even unable to walk. When she finally learned that it was caused by a virus in her knee resulting from a diet she had once believed to be healthy, she became inspired to learn more.

A medical professional herself, Dr. Cate is familiar with the nutritional science training, or lack thereof, provided in medical school. She has turned her pursuit of knowledge of nutrition into a book, Deep Nutrition: Why Your Genes Need Traditional Food, with a new edition recently out. She joins us today to share her insights on nutrition. Press play to hear more.

Find her book on most online retailers, including Amazon and Audible. You can find out more about Dr. Cate and what she does at
