Episode 171: Answering questions then questioning the answers – PART III

In episode 171, we finally finish answering, or at least trying to, listener questions. We talk about growth hormone, tramadol, and cardiovascular risk and then realize it is all for naught as we also find out that most published research findings are false. That being the case we go back and erase the previous 170 podcasts.
