Why Inflammation Matters For Your Dog (And You) – Ian Mitchell #514

Do you know what a buckminsterfullerene or a carbon nanotube is? Well, you will after this Bulletproof Radio in-person interview with a fellow named Ian Mitchell.

Ian studies a soccer ball-shaped molecule made of 60 carbon atoms that have some really interesting biological properties. Properties that are applicable to you, at least if you like to perform better.

Ian is the Vice-President of Research at Carbon60 Plus, and in this episode, he talks us through the science and implications of his work on our pet’s (and our) health.
