Change Your Diet, Change the World show

“If venture investing is a trustworthy indicator…, Americans can be optimistic about the future of the US healthcare system.” Ezekiel Emanuel.

This show explains why Barack Obama will not be remembered as the “Agricultural President”, and why candy is probably not a big driver of obesity. We also note that tick larvae look a lot like tiny adult ticks, and Jean gets to vent on the Affordable Care Act. St. Claire dietitian Jean Jones and UK dietetic intern Jordan Bressler are our guests.

Tip:  It is tick season, but remember ticks rarely transmit disease in the first 24 hours. Check yourself when you come indoors.
