"I appreciate how difficult nutrition science especially when most of the studies are epidemiological. I think Gary highlights the difficulty in drawing conclusions; however, I was not a fan of how dismissive Gary was of the scientists who conducted the studies. Gary questioned their scientific abilities and came off poorly in my eyes."
