I Don’t Believe You or the Other Guy

Yesterday I read an article that told me red meat is carcinogenic, then I read a critique of that same article no more than two hours later in response.  I have been told that the paleo diet is good, then I was told it was bad.  Mind you both sides cited experts that may or... Continue Reading →
