13:57 – Why is alternative medicine the 2nd class citizen? The hierarchy of medicine and the reason there isn’t better nutrition science.
18:11 – How modern meat could be making your breasts and hips bigger than they should be … and what you can do to “poop out” some extra estrogen.
29:48 – The subtleties of coffee science: why the final answer on whether or not to drink it will always be “it depends.”
36:27 – The reason you might not be able to hear your body say “dude, put the fork down.”

42:01 – What fat-free potato chips have to do with reducing your toxic load … and why you probably shouldn’t eat them anyways.
