Upgrade your health by changing the foods you eat with Matthew Nagra, ND

In Episode 113 I sit down with Naturopathic Doctor Matthew Nagra to talk about how he uses evidence based nutrition science to help his patients upgrade their health. If you are looking for an episode that consolidates several things previously spoken about on the show, along with findings from new research then I think you will really enjoy this episode. Particularly if you like the more in-depth science episodes.

In this episode we talk about:

  • The latest EPIC-Oxford study on bone health

  • Common questions Dr Nagra gets from patients (Including questions about protein, soy, lectins, cooking oils etc)
  • His personal food philosophy
  • LDL-Cholesterol being an independent risk factor for cardiovascular disease and his thoughts on the carnivore diet
  • Important nutrients and supplements for people reducing their consumption of animal foods

Bone Health:
2 – How we know this study failed to properly adjust for BMI and calcium intake. Twos studies below show the risk of fracture at varying BMI’s and levels of calcium intake. In the EPIC-Oxford study the researchers adjusted for the wrong part of the risk curve. As this is quite complex, it will be summarised in a blog post and a post on my Instagram profile in the coming week.
https://www.bmj.com/content/342/bmj.d1473 (calcium and bone fracture risk is non linear)
https://link.springer.com/article/10.1007/s00198-005-1863-y (BMI and bone fracture risk is non linear)
4 – For a deep dive into these above studies I recommend watching Dr Avi Bitterman’s summary https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9RULbeJnfIg&t=3819s
 
Soy:
1 – 2020: Umbrella Review: https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/31584249/
2 – Case study of male consuming around 12 serves of soy a day. https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/18558591/
3 – Second case study on a male subject consuming high amounts of soy https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S089990071000359X
 
 
Health advantages of a vegan or plant-based dietary pattern:
1 – 14% lower risk of premature death in vegetarians and vegans (from two UK cohorts) under 75 years of age who havent changed their diet:
2 – 12% lower risk of premature death in vegetarians (including vegans) compared with non-vegetarians in the AHS-2 American cohort
3 – Lower risk of diabetes in people adopting plant-based dietary patterns
4 – Lower risk of developing and dying from heart disease in people adopting plant-based dietary patterns
5 – Lower risk of developing cancer in people adopting plant-based dietary patterns
 
LDL as an independent risk factor for cardiovascular disease
1 – The consensus statement from the European Atherosclerosis Society Consensus Panel
