      He can be more science-y than others.

    Well this young man is wonderful I look forward to time at his site!
    Yes the fecal transplant might be a tough sell (but super interesting)….I helped a friend who was marketing a line if supplements that needed to be taken in an anal suppository form (as the gut destroyed what was being delivered) and I’ll tell you only colon hyrdotherapists and in the know medical docs understood. The general public may need a little coaching before they get the fecal transplant idea.
    Geesh I’m still surprised when clients look at me funny when we talk about their bowel habits and appearance in the bowl! Really? people still don’t look at their urine or feces? I guess not!
    Loved the show Jimmy, Mahalo yet again!

      People are so ambivalent. They’ve been conditioned to just take a pill for whatever ails them and nothing else matters. Sigh.

    I checked out Lucas Tafur’s website and it rivals Dr. Emily Dean, Stephan Guyenet, and Chris Masterjohn, etc. etc. in drawing attention to the science that reveals conventional dietary recommendations to be harmful and fraudulent. I was interested in his comment that university nutrition and dietary degree programs are based on *guidelines* rather than actual science. Thanks for bringing his blog to our attention.
