Despite this, Dr. Jeffrey Rediger has found that most of his colleagues are aware of at least one case that defies explanation by conventional science. He set out to learn […]

Very useful info, but...

Very useful- discussions with experts in their fields on subject concerning everyday health. I’ve learned much that I apply, often on a daily basis. But, FRUSTRATING that it takes Joel forever to get out a question, going on needlessly with details that are obvious or were even just discussed. It’s like he’s trying to fill in time, which is also the impression from so many re-introductions with long titles. That said, I grin and bear it, or grimace; it’s usually worth it.
