Awesome!!

Somehow Leo and the crew manage to do so many shows every week and then every now and then on top of their busy schedules they throw in a special interview or discussion. This feed is a great one to subscribe to because even though there isn't content every single week, around big events like CES, NAB, E3 and other there are tons of great content!

Be careful with dietary advice

The recent specials on the zero-carb diet set off some alarm bells. A while ago, Steve Gibson talked about the need to take in vitamin D, since many people in Northern areas may be deficient. This idea has some merit. However, the enthusiastic reports on the great life-changing benefits to Steve of a zero-carb diet starts getting into a risky area. Despite the disclaimers in the show about getting medical advice, many people will simply start doing what Steve is suggesting. This diet can easily put a person into acidosis unless there is some medical supervision. This type of unbalanced diet as supported by Atkins and Rosedale can lead to complications, which people may not recognize until some damage is done. There is a kind of hidden assumption that our prehistoric ancestors were strong and healthy because they didn't ingest carbs. But they were lucky to live to age 30, so complications from such a diet never had a chance to become a factor. Advice to Steve and Leo - be careful what you enthusiastically promote. Even if you think you are just reporting, disclaimers get lost and it gets interpreted as promotion.
