We welcome Shannon Dowler, a family physician and author of the book Never Too Late: Your Guide to Safer Sex after 60. In this episode, we delve into the sexual revolution that began in the 1960s and how it challenged social norms, liberated individuals from sexual repression, and transformed society's perception of sex. We also discuss the misconception that only the younger generation is susceptible to sexually transmitted infections (STIs) and the alarming rise of STIs among seniors over 55, making them one of the fastest-growing demographics contracting STIs. We explore why seniors are engaging in unprotected sex at an alarming rate and how they have the lowest condom use of any population. We also emphasize the importance of barrier methods in preventing unwanted infections by blocking the exchange of body fluids. As STIs and infections are at an all-time high, with increases year after year for the past decade, we must confront this rapid increase in people contracting STDs. It's crucial to educate ourselves about all these common infections and make informed choices about our sexual health, regardless of our age. So tune in to this informative episode, where we dispel the myths and misconceptions around senior sex, and learn from Shannon's expertise about the importance of safe sex for seniors. Shannon Dowler is a family physician and author of Never Too Late: Your Guide to Safer Sex after 60. She shares her story and discusses her KevinMD article, "Golden years, golden risk: the startling increase of STDs in seniors."

So may headlines reference obesity as an "epidemic". For generations, it has been dogma that larger bodies are bad for your health. It has also widely been assumed that if you have a higher weight, it is because you have made bad health decisions and therefore you are to blame. For many folks, (doctors included) we were taught these ideas as simple, undeniable facts: Obesity will kill you. You only become obese by eating too much and not exercising. So, if someone is obese, it is because they aren’t doing the "right things". We just need to counsel them to do the right things and they will “choose” to be healthy. And make sure to bring it up at every appointment so they don’t forget!But what if all of this was wrong?Is it possible that having a higher weight does not actually mean you are unhealthy? Thankfully we have Ragen Chastain to educate us. She has over 20 years of experience researching weight and healthcare.
