This week’s guest is the adventurous Stephen Le, author of 100 Years of Food. This conversation is jam-packed with incredible anecdotes from Stephen’s many travels to foreign countries, including the most memorable meals he has had. Stephen tells us all about hitchhiking through Malaysia, blending in with the locals, eating insects and fermented shark, and about the chili-loving dogs in Mexico. We get serious about the dangers of eating too much of the same vegetable, how the agricultural revolution affected our nutrition, and what we can do today to combat obesity. Stephen shares what he has learned about the impact of different climates on our health, including what he has discovered about the complicated balance between too little and too much sun exposure. He gives us helpful information about knowing how much sunlight each skin type requires, why we might need more parasites around, and why our red meat intake should increase as we get older. Tune in to hear this exhilarating conversation!
