“Inflamed: Deep Medicine and the Anatomy of Injustice”: Extended Interview with Dr. Rupa Marya

In an extended interview, we continue our conversation with Dr. Rupa Marya, co-author with Raj Patel of the new book, Inflamed: Deep Medicine and the Anatomy of Injustice which examines the social and environmental roots of poor health. “We need to understand that it has to be a multi-modal response to this pandemic,” says Dr. Marya. She also discusses the influence of indigenous resistance on the creation of this book, and how this matters today in understanding the fight to stop the Dakota Access Pipeline and Enbridge’s Line 3.
