"How Inflammation Triggers Chronic Illness and the Tools We Have to Fight It" (Encore)
(Note: This discussion first aired back in March.) Our guest is Dr. Monica Aggarwal, the director of Integrative Cardiology and Prevention at the University of Florida, where she teaches plant-based nutrition while also performing various mind-body techniques with her students and patients, including yoga and meditation. (You can visit her website here.) Dr. Aggarwal joins us to discuss her latest book, "Body on Fire: How Inflammation Triggers Chronic Illness and the Tools We Have to Fight It," which came out last year, and which she co-wrote with Jyothi Rao. The volume draws upon personal experiences as well as ample scientific data to argue that disease prevention and reversal are not only theoretically possible but, indeed, broadly achievable.
