    So very interesting, the whole Podcast.
    As a relative layman medically, and Type 2 Diabetic, I have been using a fairly low-carb diet of about 20-40 grms. a day,for 6 years now, and have kept free of any drug treatment, with corresponding good numbers.
    But my senses point me the the feeling that people who have Cardio-vascular problems, cancer, Diabetes, so called High cholesterol and some other complaints, are usually guided away from ‘unhealthy’ Meats, Cheeses eggs etc. and told to eat plenty of ‘Healthy’ carbs., like Bread, pasta, potatoes etc., myself included. My Diabetic nurse almost goes into panic mode when I mention my Diet.
    Let’s hope our craze for everything sweet and over-convienient, goes away and leads
    to a generally healthier population, even if it hits Pharmaceutical sales.
    Again, good eye-opener Podcast, Stan
