Weekend Link Love – Edition 302

Episode #25 of The Primal Blueprint Podcast [1] is now live. Host Brad Kearns and I talk to Dr. Ron Sinha (author of The South Asian Health Solution [2]) about his battle to change the position of the mainstream medical community on dietary fat and cholesterol and help them realize the roles of stress, inactivity, and high insulin in heart disease. It’s certainly hard fought, but he’s working from the inside and has as good a shot as anyone. If you have any ideas for future podcasts, please let us know by using the blue “Submit a Question” button in the sidebar!

If you know someone who could use a lifestyle overhaul but hasn’t the time or inclination to read, the perfect solution is now available: the Audible audiobook version of the bestselling The Primal Blueprint 21-Day Total Body Transformation [3].

Comment of the Week

I get dirty every day in the garden, but I stopped having dirt smoothies b/c I found out that soil has giardias in it sometimes. I don’t know how common this is, but giardias are not just in lakes and streams.

– In case it wasn’t clear, I was kidding about the soil smoothies [21]. Though I suspect it could be therapeutic or helpful in some cases to consciously eat dirt, it’s too risky for precisely this reason.
