    I loved this podcast. Most of us In the U.S. have yet to figure out that it is largely our Standard American Diet (SAD) that is responsible for all of our chronic and autoimmune illnesses that have become so prevalent. My one concern though, and maybe I just missed it, but I did not hear one mention of fruit. Fruit is also high in fiber and all the nutrients that our bodies need to help keep us well and functioning properly.
