In this week’s show, we feature an opening with George Carlin riffing on food advertising. Then, we discuss the recent HBO documentary, “The Weight of the Nation.” Sugar, omega 3s and saturated fats have been in the media big time, and we talk about why. Then we weigh in with Dr. Emily Deans regarding sugar, fat, and cognitive functioning. Next, it’s J. Stanton at Gnolls.org discussing nutritionism and n=1 experimentation. We also have a Moment of Paleo segment and an After the Bell featuring Dr. Satoshi Kanozawa, an evolutionary psychologist.
