  1. GUNDRY ??? I can't trust anything he says, after he already fooled me once in the early days of his lectin sham to sell bookssupplements. He's just sad. Frankly, I'm rather surprised you would have him on your show.

  2. Thank you for your explanation, but showing foto or some kind of picture of these mechanizem proces in the body,will make more understandable and not forgotten.
