063: Ask Me Anything About Nutrition, March 4, 2019

On March 4, you joined me in a live Zoom meeting to ask me anything about nutrition, and here’s the full recording!

We talk about things like:

  • How much spinach, broccoli, and kale is too much?
  • Can frozen vegetables be trusted for their folate? 
  • Do cooked legumes lose folate when frozen?
  • I go on an extended rant about the harm done by exaggerating the harms of synthetic folic acid.
  • We use labs to identify a probable genetic defect in glutathione synthesis.
  • When to think about supplementing with calcium.
  • When a drug makes histamine intolerance and blood sugar dysregulation collide.
  • My thoughts on root canals.
  • Should you take leucine to gain muscle mass, or just eat protein?
  • A GREAT discussion on how our detoxification system evolved to handle fruits and vegetables, and why eating them can help us out through the principle of "hormesis."
  • Could low LDL levels compromise female fertility?

All this and much more!
