“We’ve grown up in under an antibiotic umbrella where we think antibiotics are going to cover and cure everything.” - Dr. Martin Blaser

Health is more than a diet and exercise regimen. 

When we take a minute to examine our health from a more global perspective, the other factors of well-being surface. Our lifestyle, our habits, our mindset—these are the things that shape a person’s vitality.  

And on today’s episode of The Tai Lopez Show, we are joined by Dr. Martin Blaser, the Director of The Human Microbiome Project at NYU’s School of Medicine, to discuss the dangers of antibiotic use. Dr. Blaser has 28 patents, and is the author of Missing Microbes, a book that examines how our species is devolving with the declining supply of microbes in our system.

Tune in to this conversation to capture an educated perspective of the whole health ecosystem!

“Our system is completely backwards. It’s a false economy. People are making a lot of money out of germaphobia.” - Dr. Martin Blaser

Points to Keep In Mind

  • Humans are actually a partnership between microbes and us (equal numbers of cells)
  • Without microbes we would not be alive
  • There is evidence that our supply of microbes is disappearing
  • Evidence that this is at the root of the rising rates of autism, celiac disease, Alzheimer’s, etc. 
  • Most probiotics have not been tested in scientific studies over the long term
  • Kids who take on average more antibiotics than others turn out fatter
  • We only look at the benefits of antibiotics because doctors are too concerned about liability
  • Babies pick up their mother’s microbes in the birth canal
  • Rising rates of cesarean sections are preventing this from happening
  • 70 years ago, agriculture experts figured out that if you feed antibiotics to animals, they gain weight faster
  • Some cities have an antibiotics in their drinking water
  • Sweden uses 40% of the antibiotics we use
  • Epidemics come from the lack of diversity in our current living situations
  • Kids born by C-section are more prone to disease (celiac disease, juvenile diabetes, etc.)
  • The rate of juvenile diabetes is doubling every 25 years
  • A Denmark study showed that antibiotics increase risk of inflammatory bowel disease by 14% in kids
  • We’ve engineered a system where the doctor-patient relationship is sterile 
  • Antibiotics change the metabolism in adults 
  • We need better diagnostics to determine viral vs. bacterial infections
  • Food preservatives are antibacterials destroying our microbiome
  • Our good bacteria fights the bad bacteria; this is the problem with anti-bacterial products
  • Hospitals and doctors like C-sections because they’re scheduled
