Stress expert and retired NASA Life Sciences Division Director Dr. Joan Vernikos is our guest today in Episode 606 of The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore!
After a highly successful career serving at NASA from 1993-2003 as both a researcher and administrator, Dr. Vernikos has been committed to bringing her vast amount of knowledge and experiences to the health of the general public. Working with astronauts for many years and helping them deal with the stresses of a job that keeps them at zero gravity for long periods of time has given her a unique perspective on an aspect of healthy living that many people don't have on their radar screen. Dr. Vernikos has written a book about it called Sitting Kills, Moving Heals: How Everyday Movement Will Prevent Pain, Illness, and Early Death - and Exercise Alone Won't that will probably have you avoiding sitting as much as you possibly can after you hear this interview today! Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Vernikos talk about what's wrong with sitting for long periods of time and the health impact of being deliberate about including movement into every aspect of your daily life.
