Episode 223: PREMIUM – What pioglitazone, fever, bone density and tennis elbow have in common

In episode 223, Mike and James get back to being PREMIUM and briefly discuss 4 new studies that we think you might find interesting. These studies primarily back up a lot of what we have said in the past so we present this evidence with vigour and ignore the rest of the contradictory data – JUST kidding.
