Episode 411: PREMIUM – Eggs and omega-3s yet again – DIABEGG and REDUCE-IT

In episode 411, Mike and James get annoyed – obviously in a nice way – having to talk about a new cohort study on eggs and an RCT of yet another omega-3 product. We try to put them into the context of all the other evidence available for these “products”.
