Podcast Series “Bad Batch”: Definitely Worth The Listen

Laura Beil is an award-winning investigative reporter who chronicled the infamous neurosurgeon Christopher Duntsch in the podcast “Dr. Death”. In this podcast series, “Bad Batch”, she tells the story of greed and deception that permeated the character of “John K.”, the charismatic founder of Liveyon. It describes how unsafe production of umbilical cord product marketed as “stem cells” cause serious injury to patients due to contaminated sourcing. The irony is that all of these “off-the-shelf” birth products have no live stem cells. This is not just my view but the consensus opinion of a distinguished panel of experts (please refer to an earlier blog post “Consensus Statement on the Amniotic and Umbilical Cord Stem Cell Scams”.

This is why I always tell patients the best and safest source of stem cells is from your own body–either from bone marrow or adipose (fat) tissue. To listen to the “Bad Batch” podcast, click the link below:
