Show Notes

This Week In Wellness a Bolivian hunter gatherer tribe famous for its impeccable heart health has seen an increase in their levels in recent years as their levels of cooking oil intake have gone up.

The Tsimane’ isolated population have traditionally eaten a whole food omnivorous diet including lean meats, fish, fruits and vegetables and occasional honey. Along with an active lifestyle this has led to very healthy hearts. A 2017 study by the NIH National Institute on Ageing showed that they have low average blood pressure, little heart disease and the best coronary artery calcium scores ever measured.
