BACKING OUT OF THE ROOM

    • This leads to s discussion of Halloween, candy, and trick-or-treating stories.
    • Then somehow this segues to Richard Simmons and nude-colored stockings.

    • The link is to the PubMed website here.
    • Vinnie feels vindicated but feels that government agencies are “slowly backing out of the room”.
    • Vinnie and Anna agree that those agencies can’t commit to a decisive stand because of the origins of funding.
  • Anna and Vinnie discuss the challenge of getting into grocery store chains and the immense expense. (30:00)
  • Anna asks how are people supposed to learn what is better for their health if agencies like NIH won’t commit to a recommendation.
    • Anna reads more from the PubMed article, and Vinnie gives her some pushback. (38:00)
    • Vinnie goes over the “quality of carbs”, simple carbs, and complex carbs.
    • He also goes over what leads to insulin resistance. (43:00)
  • Vinnie plays an Instagram which is relevant to the conversation. (48:00)
    • People get so confused because of certain things they hear on the internet.
    • Some doctors find an item to hang their hat on, and that becomes the new thing (and point of confusion).
