: Episode - Radiation Oncologist Dr. Brendan Prendergast talks being a cancer doctor, the Paleo diet, CrossFit, evil sugars, and more on this Friday show.



  • Dr. Prendergast is a radiation oncologist
    • This means he uses radiation for cancer therapy
    • "Flips a switch"
  • He is an incredibly intelligent man
  • Practices in Florida
  • Got into Paleo in med school (and crossfit, too!)
  • This really shaped his idea of health and fitness
  • He and his wife started a blog last year
  • Brendan tries to incorporate his idea of healthy living into his work
  • He hated that doctors give sick people crap just because they're told it's right!
    • Often, the opposite diet is the right one
    • Giving diabetics low-fat jello is not helping anyone
  • Sugar just fuels cancer - this is easy to see!
    • There is quite possibly a correlation between increased sugar consumption and higher cancer rates
