(35:20) They talk about how today's medical curriculum still needs to be updated. They also emphasize the need to create a "new normal" of people not needing so many medications.

    State of the Union - Episode 2280

    State of the Union - Episode 2280

    Episode 2280 - On this Monday's show, Vinnie Tortorich and Anna Vocino discuss the new Food Compass, a recent CBS article about kids and obesity, a "state of the union" announcement about the podcast,  and more. PLEASE SUPPORT OUR SPONSORS DOUBLING DOWN ON THE LIE Vinnie and Anna start the show discussing Nina Teicholz and the new "Food Compass" published by Tufts University. (3:55) They discuss A1C and getting a CAC score. (9:00) They discuss saturated fat and other items claimed to be bad by prominent vegan "doctors." STATE OF THE UNION The show turns to the topic of a "State of the Union" of the podcast and what's to come. (20:15) The show will go back down to three episodes a week, but still have five days' worth of content. On occasion, there may be a bonus Saturday show. Don't zip past the Villa Capelli ad--you'll hear why! (27:20) Then Vinnie and Anna launch into the topic of a recent CBS article that reports a recommendation by the American Pediatrics Association that parents should consider medication and even surgery for their obese children. (30:45) These organizations are just doubling-down on the lie and misinformation given to the public. It gets confusing and parents aren't necessarily to blame; there are many factors involved. People need to hold Tufts, the APA, and other organizations accountable and demand better. They discuss the medicines for A1C and the misguided opinions from the establishment. Dr. Robert Lustig is mentioned in the article, but not until further into it. Dr. Lusting has been on this podcast and also has a great YouTube video called "Sugar--the Bitter Truth" that you can watch . Vinnie explains his plans for an upcoming workout video where he will demonstrate specific moves. (55:45) He plans to add a little "lagniappe" for you.

Vinnie is a truth sayer

I’ve been listening to Vinnie now for years. He tells the truth, is entertaining, and thoughtful. He’s a long haul guy, meaning a little does of his show won’t do. Check out the next and the next. I’ve been changed by his philosophy and will stick by him for year to come. Thanks Vinnie. Stay motivated. Ross. New Mexico
