New York Times Best-selling author and wellness guru, Dr Joseph Mercola, took to the stage for he final presentation of the day. Dr Mercola urged attendees to reconsider their diets, and to move away from the ultra-processed foods that now constitute 60% of the calories consumed by Americans.
Dr Mercola shared the newest insights on simple ways to help prevent disease, including cancer, by implementing strategies that will improve the body’s energy production at the cellular level.
Topics discussed included: boosting mitochondrial function, why everyone should have their serum ferritin levels checked, and why fat should make up the bulk of the energy we consume.
"Ninety-five percent of our energy stores are as fat," he said, "with only 5% as carbs, but most people are using carbs as the primary sources of energy. It's wrong."
