Dr. Mike Roussell Nutritional Consultant

Welcome Dr. Mike:

We’re joined on the Starline by an educator, author and advisor to Men’s Health magazine. He’s published over 600 articles on health and nutrition. We welcome Dr. Mike Roussell

Mike, let’s go Beyond the Mic. You have tackled the effects of lifestyle interventions on high-density lipoprotein cholesterol levels and the effect of a DASH-like diet containing lean beef on vascular health. Why were you intrigued on a recent study conducted by Cornell University on pistachios?

You have done so much research on cardiac health and antioxidants. Was there someone in your family that has driven you to these goals or was it just interesting to you?

With groceries costs increasing, what are some inexpensive ways to support healthy heart health?

In your own house, you have limited access to snacks by making it easier to see, but harder to get to by putting it in airtight containers adding a barrier to eating an entire bag of chips.

Why did that work with your kids?
