Episode 8 - Nicotine... The Good, The Bad, and the Not-So-Ugly?
Jun 17, 2020 Season 1 Episode 8
Willam A. Seeds, MD

We know nicotine as the deciding factor in addiction to smoking cigarettes and vaping, and probably think it's 'bad'.

And you're right, it's bad, but not for the reason you might assuming... Nicotinic receptors in your cells are an actual thing. When activated the natural way, these receptors can emit the cell signals that have positive cognitive benefits.

But that's the thing-- it has to be activated in the natural way, and that's the ticker!

The science is fascinating. truly. But what's more interesting is Dr. Seeds' approach to the smoking problem. It's completely atypical to what you'd expect to hear from a board certified surgeon...
