    "It all starts with the dirt," with Melinda Turner of Farm Nutrient Advisory

    "It all starts with the dirt," with Melinda Turner of Farm Nutrient Advisory

    In this week's podcast, discover how optimising soil health is your key to farming profitability. We're joined by Melinda Turner from Farm Nutrient Advisory, a specialist in the fields of animal science, soil and plant sciences. Melinda brings a straightforward, no-nonsense approach to this complex subject. 

    Melinda discusses some of the common challenges in nutrient management. It's such a vast topic and, with many 'snake oil' sales people out there, it’s no wonder many farmers find it overwhelming. Melinda runs us through mineral imbalances in the soil, like low levels of calcium among others, and how they affect other nutrients and their availability. 

    “You quite often get high potassium soils that can play havoc with magnesium interaction and also in terms of your calcium uptake, because the magnesium is needed for the hormone release that triggers calcium absorption,” she explains. “So, if you've got too much potassium in your soil and you're not applying appropriate magnesium and calcium, you can have quite a knock-on effect with a number of those minerals and vitamins as well. "

    Melinda also shares her expertise in soil testing and analysis, underscoring its importance in maintaining optimal nutrient levels. She advises regular testing, "For both soil and herbage, every couple of years would be a minimum." She highlights that the cost of extra testing is soon reaped by the benefits of healthier, productive and, more importantly, optimised livestock, soils and forage. 

    She also highlights the importance of how variable soil conditions are from farm to farm, so relying on what your neighbours, or the local fert rep, tells you to do, without proper scientific testing beforehand, can waste a lot of time and money. 

    And, of course, we dive briefly into the world of genetics with Melinda explaining how soil health influences genetic expression in plants, much like nutrition does in livestock. Tune in to gain valuable insights into nutrient management and its crucial role in successful farming.

    How Sugar & Processed Foods Impact Your Health

    How Sugar & Processed Foods Impact Your Health
    In this episode, we address the “calories in- calories out” (CICO) model of metabolism and weight regulation and how specific macronutrients (protein, fat, carbohydrates), fiber, and sugar can modify the CICO equation. My guest is Dr. Robert Lustig, M.D., neuroendocrinologist, professor of pediatrics at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF), and a bestselling author on nutrition and metabolic health. We cover how different types of sugars, specifically fructose, sugars found in liquid form, taste intensity, and other factors impact insulin levels, liver, kidney, and metabolic health. We also explore how fructose in non-fruit sources can be addictive, acting similarly to drugs of abuse, and how sugar alters brain circuits related to food cravings and satisfaction. The discussion then shifts to the role of sugar in childhood and adult obesity, gut health and disease, and mental health. We delve into how the food industry uses refined sugars to create pseudo foods and the implications of these on the brain and body. This episode is replete with actionable information about sugar and metabolism, weight control, brain health, and body composition. It ought to be of interest to anyone seeking to understand how specific food choices impact the immediate and long-term health of the brain and body.

    Does Eating Meat Help Or Harm Our Health?

    Does Eating Meat Help Or Harm Our Health?

    This episode is brought to you by Rupa Health, Mitopure, and Super Simple Grassfed Protein.

    While anti-meat advocates and scientists have tried to scare Americans by linking meat to everything from cancer to heart disease, diabetes, and even obesity, research actually shows meat is a nutrient-dense food that can help prevent disease and nutritional deficiencies when you eat it with plenty of plants and vegetables (and not as part of the typical Western diet and lifestyle). That doesn’t mean there isn’t a dark side to eating meat, but there are good scientific and health-minded reasons to eat high-quality, organic, grass-fed, sustainably raised meat as part of an overall healthy diet.

    In today’s episode of my series I’m calling Health Bites, I discuss why meat is such a contentious food, whether meat really contributes to global warming, and how to make the most informed decision about purchasing and eating meat.
