Today we have a sort of “video podcast” for you. As in, Chloe and I chit-chat at length and drink a vat of tea, while also answering your burning questions!

And the belief that calcium can only be found in dairy products is now hard-wired into our collective consciousness. But what if this was a myth propagated by those who profit from widespread consumption of dairy products? What if we ...
