Have you heard of scientific wellness? In this episode, Nathan Price and Joe discuss whether the conventional approach of using pharmaceuticals to treat chronic diseases is effective, or if a preventative approach to complex conditions such as cardiovascular disease and Alzheimer’s is the best choice.
Nathan explains how genes can help predict the success of lifestyle-based interventions and talks about the accuracy of polygenic risk scores vs single variants for disease prediction, and how genetics can be used in healthcare.
Nathan and Joe also talk about nicotinamide mononucleotide (NMN), nicotinamide riboside (NR), DHEA, and other supplements. Plus, Nathan explains the controversy of choline, carnitine, and TMAO, and if you should be worried.

He was named one of the 10 Emerging Leaders in Health and Medicine by the National Academy of Medicine and was appointed to the Board on Life Sciences of the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine.
