Latest in Paleo 164: Sweetening the Research

Evelyn Kocur and Meredith Rhodes join me, Angelo Coppola, to discuss News & Views*. Stories include: the sugar industry's influence on research, David Katz on the Paleo Diet, alcohol and exercise, and how daily cannabis use might affect BMI. The Moment of Paleo segment covers trust in the media. After the Bell features Dr. David Agus' new strategy in the war on cancer.

*Many listeners have noted Kocur's passionate/combative style. I believe this was genuinely unintentional. She has graciously apologized on the show, on Twitter, and privately. I harbor no hard feelings and consider it water under the bridge. The episode is still thought-provoking and informative! If the tone makes it difficult for you to listen, though, you may still enjoy fast-forwarding to the Moment of Paleo and After the Bell segments.
