By Sanjay Gupta (Original source Thrive Global)
“In his new CNN original series, Chasing Life, Dr. Sanjay Gupta, a neurosurgeon, and a global correspondent, explores the distinct practices around the world to bring us the secrets to longevity and help us better understand overall wellbeing in the long term. He travels to Bolivia, India, Turkey, Japan, Norway & Italy in this six-episode series. I had a chance to chat with him about his new series and the overall connection he is trying to make between health and happiness from his travels to these diverse parts of the world.
1. What was the inspiration for the show?
I think as a person who has traveled all over the world and as a doctor, what I have realized over the years is that there are important and interesting things happening in health around the globe. I think, a lot of times we as Americans tend to get precautious and isolated in terms of how we think about healthcare because in some parts of the world, healthcare is not just the avoidance of disease.”
