Episode 253: Food and You – the evidence conundrum – PART II

In episode 253, James and Mike continue biting off the evidence around nutrition. We discuss salt, breakfast, eggs, fiber, coffee, fruit and vegetable servings, and alcohol. At the end, we get terribly confused and go out and have a smorgasbord.
