Show Notes

“What the Health” is a new documentary on Netflix that shows the horrors of the industrial food system, and the influence of money on food policy; but it also claims that eating an egg a day is as bad as smoking 5 cigarettes, chicken causes cancer, and fat causes diabetes…

In today’s show, we separate fact from fiction, and also discuss a practice that is as old as time: fasting. Fouad goes on a one meal a day experiment and tells us about his experience!
