This week, Tristin and Juanique are joined by Dr. John Sanders, a doctor who has focused on fixing the broken medical system in the United States. Dr. Sanders graduated medical school with a focus on family medicine and rural medicine, which he practiced in Moab, Utah until he moved north to Utah County. He graduated from Nova Southeastern University College of Osteopathic Medicine and has been in practice between 6-10 years.

He works to keep his practice transparent and even negotiates prices on behalf of his patients. In this episode, Tristin, Juanique, and Dr. Sanders talk about how the American medical system is broken from an inside and outside perspective.
Atoms, molecules, organelles, cells, tissues, organs, organisms (us). That is how the building blocks of life are ordered.
But we need to understand the most fundamental building block, the atom, in order to understand everything else that is constructed from them.
The Newtonian diagram of an atom and what reality is are two completely different things.
And any honest scientist would tell you that we still aren’t entirely sure what the atom looks like. Multiple models are used depending on what scientists are trying to measure.
However, I want to bring some understanding to the scale of an atom for you and show you how atoms are actually mostly empty space.
Imagine a professional football field/stadium and in the center a grain of rice. Now imagine 5 or so grains of sand rotating around the outside of football stadium. That is a more accurate scale of what an atom consists of. Empty space...mostly empty space.
But how can this be? How can...
