In this Premium-exclusive ‘Ask Me Anything’ episode, Alan & Danny answer a range of listener questions. Topics include obesity rates, lowering blood pressure, cholesterol drugs, PCOS, and what issues they have changed their minds on. See the full list of questions below.

[02.37] Do you feel that there is hope (or an effective way forward) for obesity rates to come down? Based on your response, why/why not?

[11.28] In this field, it seems like so many of us have had positions we’ve held very seriously that we now see as poorly supported by research, or just have a significant paradigm change. It would be great to hear you look back to how your views have evolved over the years.

[30.34] Apart from lowering salt intake and eating foods high in potassium are there other things you can take or do to reduce blood pressure?

[40.34] What is the best ratio of DHA vs EPA to increase my Omega 3 index?

[46.20] Statins v Ezetimibe: Differences between the two? Mechanism of action? Are there situations, conditions, genetic markers where one may work better than the other?

[56.20] I’m starting a PhD in the fall concerning the pathophysiology of metabolic diseases and I’d like to take some courses that would help me in my research. Would you have any recommendations for a beginner scientist?

[59.01] Is astaxanthin a good substitute for algae oil for someone who follows a vegan diet?

[60.45] Do you have any suggestions how to better manage hunger in obese women with PCOS?

[64.33] Do you have any recommendations for anyone wanting to get involved in chrononutrition research?
