  1. Oops. Sorry. Apparently he has pulled that video. Not sure what’s going on. In the video, he stated that Saigon cinnamon has a naturally occurring toxic chemical (I believe it was courmarin or coumarin – not sure of spelling) in it and that Ceylon cinnamon does not. Frontier markets a Ceylon cinnamon but the most common on the market is Saigon cinnamon. Perhaps there was a challenge to this. My apologies.

  2. Dear Dana,
    I have just discovered your podcasts and wanted to say how much I enjoy them! I have already learned a lot. Thanks for the motivation and great information!
    best regards,

  3. Hi, Dana,
    I’m also an Aldi’s shopper, and the last duck I bought came from there. Here in Wi, they also have avocados, broccoli, cauliflower, mushrooms, tomatoes, cukes, etc.
    I’m really curious about the 14 French meats. I can think of several birds that aren’t commonly available here, though we did have a xmas goose. Quail, rabbit, bison, emu – I’ve see all for sale here, though they’re expensive and hard to find. I would count cured meats separately from fresh, and I’d think they’d count each species of fish and seafood. That could put any list over the top.

    It’s fun speculating, isn’t it?


  4. I’m glad I listened to this post because I got my blood test performed last year, and My cholesterol was below the limit, my HDL was above the minimum good, and my
    Triglycerides were 36. the normal range is <150mg/dL

    But my LDL was 106 which was above the <100 mg/DL. I felt like I had done something wrong because my LDL was above normal. Now i realize my Tris were very low and that the LDL is based on a formula based on a high Tri level. I feel vindicated.

    So is 36 not a normal low Trig Level? I guess it's a really good number since you said you got down to that number.
