Kevin Gianni is a health author, activist and blogger. He started seriously researching personal and preventative natural health therapies in 2002 when he was struck with the reality that cancer ran deep in his family and if he didn’t change the way he was living — he might go down that same path. Since then, he’s written and edited 6 books on the subject of natural health, diet and fitness. During this time, he’s constantly been humbled by what experts claim they know and what actually is true. This has led him to experiment with many diets and protocols — including vegan, raw food, fasting, medical treatments and more — to find out what is myth and what really works in the real world.

Kevin has also traveled around the world searching for the best protocols, foods, medicines and clinics around and bringing them to the readers of his blog — which is one of the most widely read natural health blogs in the world with hundreds of thousands of visitors a month from over 150 countries around the world.

    Kevin – in reference to your recent blog entry about new ” Blue Zones ” – recently I read an article that said that it wasn’t smoking tobacco that causes cancer but the chemicals that are used to process them in the U.S. – he pointed to cultures that smoke a LOT and have low rates of lung cancer – can not remember for the life of me where I read this article
    You mentioned recently that no real studies have been done on the effects of eating real organic, grass finished beef as opposed to supermarket beef – could it be that the same is true of the Blue Zones ? Are the wine they drink – the cigarettes they smoke – all of the things we see as negative the same as we consume here ? Is the wine they consume processed like wine here ? We believe that the pure, unprocessed things they consume make them healthier – perhaps the pure, unprocessed ” unhealthy ” things they consume are much less unhealthy there !

    We have wall-to-wall carpeting that we’ve had for 20 years because I’m waiting for the carpet industry to come out with carpeting that is non-toxic. Looks like I may wait forever. We did get some pure wool carpeting for the guest house and it’s great. They said it was from humanely raised sheep (PureGrow) because we are vegan. I’m just not sure whether to believe them on that issue AND the carpet is un-dyed and thus light colored. Not sure that would work throughout our house.
    I’m thinking of jute or sisal or some other plant fiber (vegan) but there are probably glues and toxic stuff in those too. We’re living with 20-year-old carpeting because I figure all the outgassing happened years ago.

  4. We have pure wool untreated carpet -the sisal is ok but has some odors as well.
    we have a sealant to block fumes from reguar carpet . call us or email if you need any help.

    american spirits tobacoo. awsome, best, and help u quit much easier probably bc of no chemicals or additives like the thousands in regular smokes, organic bst of course. dirt floors, connect!

  6. I was in the Ashby post office after they installed a new rug, had to go outside as it was making me faint. Worked in Emeryville boss and others were always thirsty and had headaches. We had the carpets taken out.
    Worked in Lafayette when new carpets were being installed told them I’m allergic to the glue and smell, did not work till the smell went away.
    Have a friend who cleans carpets with no toxic stuff. Jon the carpet muse at red rugs 415-685-1422 has good rating on yelp.
    House I lived in MOroccco had tile floors and walls easy to clean with a squegee.

    I have carpet and wood flooring (well, it’s laminate – but no glue – snap together). If I could afford to, I would replace the carpet with more laminate flooring. I replaced part of the about 5 years ago (with the laminate flooring)and love it. The carpet is 22 years old, so I assume there is not more outgassing. Thanks for these interviews. She is delightful.

    We live in Europe, and they don’t really carpet floors here. Often they will have decorative rugs on a tile or wood floor though. Our house has tile floors, laminate floors, wood floors, and our back hall looks like some sort of dark concrete with little chips of marble in it. I love salt lamps for helping to keep the air clean! I do like to have the windows open as well, if the outside air smells clean. We live in a large city, and often the outside air is not smelling great. But I try to do the best I can. We live in a quieter neighbourhood with hardly any cars on our street, we have some trees and grass, and lots of salt lamps in our rooms. :o)
