Episode 149: Definitively vague questions with vaguely definitive answers – PART III

In episode 149, Mike and James finally get to the last of the questions and discuss the use of vinegar for weight loss, surrogate markers and what to do about them, steroids for migraine, niacinamide for acne, statins for women, and what is the meaning of life. We discuss, all of these issues in depth and believe it or not at the end of the podcast we actually figure out the meaning of life but accidentally erase that part. We’ll bring that issue up at a later date in a PREMIUM podcast.
