Episode 250: New Studies – two podcasts for the price of one

In episode 250, Mike and James double up on the value by giving you close to 60 minutes of pure gold – fools gold actually. We discuss a number of new studies that help answer questions about dual antiplatelets, niacin, OST, the number of fruit and vegetable servings, and acetaminophen for acute low back pain. At the end we realize 250 podcasts is a lot and we so much thank all the people who have chosen to listen over the years.
