    I’ve yet to see Mr. Seifert’s doc but this New Yorker article indicates he did very little research into what he’s saying is good and bad.

    Docs like this (and “Forks Over Knives”) seem to be propaganda that, while not nearly as dangerous as right wing propaganda, is still a lie blown out of proportion to scare people. I’m still looking forward to this episode, keep up the awesome work Ondi!
