On today's show: I'm annoyed by the lack of journalistic excellence in reporting the new guidelines on statins; transfats may be banned all together, health benefits of vegetable oils questioned, red meat consumption linked to diabetes, and how saying no to McDonald's can be dangerous. Sriracha lessons in the Moment of Paleo. After the Bell includes clips from Statin Nation, a sales rep turns Whistleblower, and the Triumphs of Experience from the TakeAway.
