  1. Not related to this podcast but related to healthy foods. I hear about the health benefits of Manuka Honey. I wonder if there has been any scientific studies on the claims for this medical marvel ?

    • Hi Blair,

      A great question! Despite the health claims of “honey,” in my mind, it is still mostly sugar. Here is an article I previously wrote on honey: https://drjohnday.com/honey-vs-high-fructose-corn-syrup/

      Given the metabolic toxicities of sugar, especially when it comes to insulin sensitivity, I encourage people to minimize or avoid all forms of sugar (which includes honey).

      Hope this helps!
