I previously touched on this topic in Survival of the Firmest: Erectile Dysfunction & Death (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/survival-of-the-firmest-erectile-dysfunction-and-death/) and 50 Shades of Greens (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/50-shades-of-greens/).
Might better sexual function lead to better health? Hasn’t been studied in women, but in my last video I reviewed the available evidence for men: Do Men Who Have More Sex Live Longer? (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/Do-Men-Who-Have-More-Sex-Live-Longer).
What effect might that inflammation directly following an unhealthy meal have on our artery function? Check out my 3-part endotoxins series starting with The Leaky Gut Theory of Why Animal Products Cause Inflammation (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/the-leaky-gut-theory-of-why-animal-products-cause-inflammation/).
And why again, is fiber anti-inflammatory? Watch my video Prebiotics: Tending Our Inner Garden (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/prebiotics-tending-our-inner-garden).
