    Podcast Questions: Liver Taste and Evolution [23:24]
    Casi says
    I’m a reader/listener since 2010, so thanks for the knowledge and laughs for many years, hope you keep going forever.
    My question… liver seems to be one of the best foods for us. Nutritional density, vitamins, minerals, etc. A ‘superfood’? Anyhoo, I’ve been wondering why, if the above is true, liver tastes so f*****g awful to so many people?? An amateur thinker like myself would think if it’s so great for us, we would have a propensity to desire the taste. But I’m looking to an expert thinker to show me what I’m missing.
    Thanks again.

    Vertical farming... [38:30]
    Susie says
    Hi Robb and Nikki!
    Last week you "debunked" lab meat.
    This week... what are your thoughts on vertical farming?
    I thought this video by Freethink to be excellent... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J4SaSfnHK3I
    Any reason you think this won't work?
    Looks legit to me as a layperson. But what do I know?
    Any thoughts much appreciated!

    Podcast Questions: 1. LASIK [17:19]
    Mark says:
    Hi Robb and Nikki,
    On last week's episode Robb mentioned getting LASIK.
    I don't think I've heard this mentioned on the podcast before.
    I'm short-sighted (-4.00), and have long been considering LASIK. But, something about it just makes me feel squeamish.
    Robb, how much research into the procedure did you have to do before getting comfortable with it?
    Are there any major thoughts/findings from your research worth sharing?
    And, you being someone who's active and does BJJ, did you consider LASEK (ek) over LASIK (ik), which I've read is often preferred by military personnel/police/boxers/the like (anything high impact).
    From an article in The Times (UK):
    "Unlike the most common form of laser eye surgery, Lasik, the operation used on military personnel, Lasek, does not involve slicing a flap in the cornea because there is a slim chance that a hard blow could dislodge the flap. Boxers, police officers and those with a very active lifestyle are also advised to opt for Lasek."
    How was your recovery – being able to get back into physical activity?
    Any and all thoughts that might help me overcome my squeamishness would be much appreciated!
    Mark
    2. Returning to fitness after cancer [29:48]
    Greg says:
    Hey Robb and Nikki,
    I have a friend who has just finished an extensive round of chemo treatments. He wants to know what would be the best way to pursue getting back in shape and getting his health in order post-chemo. Are there any specific things he should focus on in terms of diet and exercise? Thanks for everything you do.
    3. Essential Tremors [32:25]
    Sandy says:
    I have heard you mention several times on Podcasts that you are finding some relief from your essential tremors with lions mane. I would love to do my own experiment to see if this would help me. What form of lions mane would you suggest? What dosage would you shoot for? How long did it take until you saw some relief? All of the drugs I have tried for my tremors gave me side effects that were worse than the tremors themselves. So I had given up. This is the first time in a long time I have felt hopeful. Thanks for what you do!

    Hello Rob,
    I've heard a few of the guys at jiu jitsu talking about Kratom. The reviews online are all over the place, what are your thoughts on Kratom?
    Thank you
    2. "Clean Meat" [25:30]
    Emily says:
    Hi! I'm actually brand new to listening to your podcast. A friend who runs a regenerative farm in Virginia (Franchesca's Dawn Farm) wrote about your podcast in a recent newsletter and I had to check it out.
    I recently read a book called "Clean Meat" about lab created meat (from stem cells) and how this industry (as of the 2016 publishing) is getting ready to boom. I've recently also seen notice of China perfecting a lab meatball that will hit the market shelves by the end of 2022, and FDA approval in 2023 for the US market.
    While I won't claim to know much, my concern lies with the individuals investing in this research and products that are also buying farm land. Some of these same individuals are also involved in vaccination research and implementation. Their agenda and intentions are concerning at the least.
    That aside, where can we go to find research on how this lab grown meat actually impacts the body? There's obviously no blood flow in the bath that this is grown in, and my guess is that many of the nutrients are synthetic.
    The questions that keep rolling around are the impacts on our own cellular growth and reproduction, as well as how our bodies metabolize this stuff. Secondly, the researchers have admitted that they are able to create structures that don't even exist naturally, of course.
    Any rate, I can't be the only person thinking about this. Would love direction and ideas to learn more.
    With Gratitude,
    Emily
    3. Vaccine Trust and Supplements [37:52]
    Hans says:
    Just finished a recent Cleared Hot podcast in which you were a guest and two questions come to mind
    1.) With a lot of concerns and speculation around the Covid vaccine, do you think the publics general "trust" of the vaccine had been more well received had it been offered for free or at cost to governments? Adding the disclaimer that yes, Covid 'could' be bad, but as serious as the problem has been made out to be, we are offering the vaccine not to make money, but to ensure the health and safety of the population.
    2.) As an athlete I've experimented with almost every supplement on the market. And after years of experimenting—protein, creatine and salts (LMNT) have become really the only 3 supplements I use regularly. Fish oils, vitamins, brain boosters, etc—I don't really feel it notice a difference. Outside of any real lacking deficiencies, are supplements as a whole really 'that' necessary? Or just really good marketing?
    Hope these questions find you well.

    Show Notes: This is the third installment of our "fireside chat" with Diana Rodgers. In this salty talk Robb and Diana unpack George Monbiot's recent Guardian piece in which he claims that the literally WORST food that humans can produce is….wait for it….pastured, organic meat. Yes, worse than monocropping, worse than round up and synthetic fertilizer, pastured meat is, in Monbiot's eyes, the worst. We also looked at a recent Mathew Crawford piece that considers director and Hollywood bigwig, James Cameron's efforts to run organic farms in New Zealand. Cameron has invested tens of millions of dollars into various meat alternative projects and is unabashedly anti-meat. Well, Cameron's farms were failing until he did this one weird trick….tune into the episode to discover the ironic punchline to that story!

    Podcast Questions:  
    1. Gut microbiome & antibiotics [36:36]

    Alex says
    Hi Robb!
    I’ve heard you talk about the importance of a healthy gut microbiome and the impact it has on other areas of the body (mental health, etc). I wanted to get your opinion on potential solutions for promoting a healthy gut microbiome in less than ideal circumstances. I have ulcerative colitis and I’ve had my colon removed as well as some of my small intestine, I have been on antibiotics and steroids daily for about 1.5 years to deal with ongoing inflammation issues. I assume that the antibiotics wipe out any good gut bacteria I have on a daily basis, and I struggle to get any answers from my medical team on what I can do to maintain any sort of good gut bacteria. I’ve tried probiotics, but assume they’re counteracted by the antibiotics. Any suggestions or resources you think may help?
    Thanks for all you do!

    2. Queasy running [48:12]

    Eric says:
    Hi Robb - my wife and I are huge fans and she suggested I write to see if you had any thoughts on this. I’ve been an athlete my entire life and always a runner. Lately I’ve experienced nausea about a mile into my runs. I’m not running hard, in fact it’s really just as I’m getting warmed up. I’m breathing harder, but not like race-hard - if that makes sense.
    We are huge LMNT fans and I consistently consume at least 6000mg of sodium daily. Particularly in the summer heat.
    I don’t experience this any other time other than when I start to run. If I stop for a few min, the feeling generally passes and I can go on with my run. I’ve looked at what I’m eating prior to my runs and (1) nothing has really changed, even though this feeling is relatively recent and (2) I don’t see anything that I think would make me nauseous. I’m a pretty consistent and clean eater. Could this be an electrolyte issue??
    For reference: I’m 5’9” 165lbs, lean/muscular.
    We eat low carb (my wife follows Dr Bernstein) so I eat similarly but include dairy & berries
    Would greatly appreciate any thoughts you might have on what could be causing this. Thanks for all you - and Nicki - do to keep us informed and entertained!
