The Mountain Life | Nov. 3, 2021

Today's guests on The Mountain Life are authors Dr. Ruchi Gupta and Laura Galloway

World-renowned researcher on food allergies and founding director of the Center for Food Allergy & Asthma Research , Dr. Ruchi Gupta ( 1:54) discusses her new book: Food Without Fear with Pete and Lynn. In the book Dr. Gupta details how one in five people in the U.S. has a health condition related to food—from disruptive sensitivities and intolerances to serious allergic reactions that can send them to the ER. These food-related problems are on a historic rise across all ages.

Then, author Laura Galloway ( 29:06) joins the show and talks about her memoir called Dálvi: Six Years in the Arctic Tundra. An ancestry test suggesting she shared some DNA with the Sámi people, the indigenous inhabitants of the Arctic tundra, ultimately led Galloway to leave New York for a tiny town in the Arctic region of Norway. Dálvi is the story of her time in a reindeer-herding village in the Arctic, forging a solitary existence as she struggled to learn the language and make her way in a remote community for which there were no guidebooks or manuals for how to fit in.
