90% of Americans are considered "dietary deficient", with 60% of Cancers being attributed to poor diet. In this episode, we talk about:
--The disastrous results of a January 2016 government study on the nutritional health of Americans.

--The groups most at-risk for being nutritionally deficient, such as pregnant women, the elderly, the obese, and even athletes.
--The increased chance of birth defects and Autism if a pregnant mother is nutritionally deficient. Plus, how low Iodine in pregnant women will lead to lower IQ in the baby.
--How the aging process is slowed with proper nutrition as many of the effects of the aging process are actually nutritional deficiencies.
--How correcting nutritional deficiencies in an obese person makes it easier for them to lose weight.
