Soil science, grains, technology, and the future of health care
In this week’s episode of Ventures, my guest Joni Kindwall-Moore and I discuss the science behind grains, soils, and microbiomes. We also talk about the story of her startup (https://snacktivistfoods.com/) and how her team is helping to regenerate healthy soils and grains to improve human health.
Technology and the future of health care
Sponsored by IBM, Stat News recently published this eBook: “How technology is designing the future of health care” which includes the following fascinating topics:
- “Former Google CEO Schmidt says AI ‘will have its biggest impact’ in health care
- ‘More Amazon and less pharmacy’: one exec on the company’s strategy for prescription drugs
- Measuring blood sugar in real time is a game changer for patients —and a health tech success story
- How Cityblock Health is tapping into technology to better care for Medicaid patients
- From big tech to small tech: A health care visionary pushes for a patient-centric approach to technology
- How digital pharmacies can expand access to specialized care
- There’s a gold rush in health tech. Here’s how the smart money stays ahead
- Illumina CEO insists GRAIL merger will be good for competition, and ultimately, patients
- Amazon, Salesforce execs weigh in on how tech can help with Covid — and how it can’t”
All these topics are super interesting, but I’m an especially huge fan of continuous glucose monitoring (CGM). In fact, on this topic, Peter Attia recently did a podcast: AMA #24: Deep dive into blood glucose: why it matters, important metrics to track, and superior insights from a CGM, which I’d encourage you to check out.
In fact, I personally did some N=1 experiments last year: Whoop vs. Oura Ring vs. Apple Watch for Optimizing Sleep and Workout Performance with Continuous Glucose Monitoring and One Meal a Day: Part 1 & Part 2. It was fascinating to learn how my own blood sugar control works in response to various foods, exercise, and sleep patterns.
Have a great rest of your week!
