One of the saddest lessons of history is this: If we’ve been bamboozled long enough, we tend to reject any evidence of the bamboozle. We’re no longer interested in finding out the truth. The bamboozle has captured us. It’s simply too painful to acknowledge, even to ourselves, that we’ve been taken. Once you give a charlatan power over you, you almost never get it back.” ― Carl Sagan, The Demon-Haunted World: Science as a Candle in the Dark

Podcast Questions:

1. Brain Fog [30:01]

Ryan says:

Hi Rob, I’ve been noticing more over the past few years the phenomenon of brain fog. It seems to most often set in after eating breakfast which is a rotation of Eggs, Sausage, and Cheese with the occasional bread and Oatmeal. Plain eggs is the most frequent breakfast. My question is: Are there other foods besides gluten known to cause this fatigue/fogginess (like eggs and dairy) and how long does it typically take to set in? Most mornings when I experience the fogginess it is accompanied by an irritable mood. Important to note that this was never an issue until after high school when my diet changed to include significantly less breads, often going a week or more between consuming glutens and obviously getting older too.


P.S Maybe I see you at Costco sometime.

2. The Next Generation - Veganism [35:32]

Janeen says:

A topic I do not hear addressed much is that with veganism on the rise, what is going to happen to the children born to vegans? I have a friend who is an RN and is an internationally certified lactation consultant (or some such title) and she says the babies of vegans are smaller, have lower APGAR scores, do not seem to thrive as well as non-vagan babies. But this type of information never makes it to the news. Those babies were denied so much nutrition while developing, and once born, the mother's breast milk is less than ideal. Will these kids not be able to reach their full potential despite the lack of nutrients that was in their diets? Our 32 year old daughter has been a vegan for 4 years or so and is about to get married. She believes the vegan line that it is a perfectly fine diet. I have a degree in anthropology and there has never been a healthy vegan society since we came down from the trees. My daughter does not believe me. I am and NTP, all I know about nutrition is wrong, according to her. She feels my course was taught by pro-meat eaters and therefore they had an agenda. What will happen to our society if there are not enough intelligent people left to do be able to make the hard, philosophical decisions that need to made to keep this ship floating?
