On this episode, Dr. John McDougall takes us on a near-50-year journey as a doctor, educator, and even a 15-year stretch as a radio talk show host. He explains his dietary positions, and why he believes the human diet should be based on starch. While Dr. McDougall doesn’t consider himself a vegan, he recommends no meat in the diet and explains why (his answer may surprise you). Dr. McDougall also holds strong opinions with regard to medical screenings, and he discusses these views as well. Listen in for an audio experience I hope you’ll enjoy.

The Moment of Paleo is my best sales pitch juxtaposed against high octane brains and upgraded marketing. After the Bell, it's Denise Minger who says Paleo can learn from the Vegans.
