TIMECODE:

1:21 - In your video on cyclamate you only talk about cancer, but according to the NCI "The FDA's concerns about cyclamate are not cancer related." So what are the FDA's concerns? Should they concern me too?

2:05 - I actually get to watch live today! Aaron, quick, what is your favorite tabletop game?

3:00 - Is very high B12 (like 1500 pg/ml) for at least the last 3 years something to worry about? Doc's (2 PCP's and an endo) say it's non-toxic so no worries... but I found a bunch of studies saying there is correlation with high b12 and some cancers... is cancer screening warranted?

3:58 - All right, so, some background info.
I'm 26, and I'm legally blind with Retinitis Pigmentosa. I tend to be pretty skeptical about most articles that get passed around on social networks and such. However, when it comes to stuff about vision issues, I tend to pay just a bit more attention, though I remain skeptical.
I just got the following article about an "eye acupuncturist," and I wanted to ask in this subreddit (especially since Doc sounds pretty hoarse from his last episode.) The article: http://determinedtosee.com/?p=1633
So, on to the questions:
1: What studies are there about the effectiveness of acupuncture? From what I understand about it, it really shouldn't do much better than a placebo, right?
2: Does anyone else think the article seems a bit suspicious, or even quackish?

7:05 - Hi, do you have any thoughts on cord blood banks? Is it just a waste of money or a great idea worth investing in? What do we know about the quality of that material after a while (say a year)? Maybe it should be considered only by families with certain hereditary conditions?

8:49 - Is there any science behind the recommendation to do 10,000 steps per day? I heard it was a marketing message from a podometer manufacturerer (edited)

10:54 - People tell me that people with pre-existing conditions die while waiting for treatment in Canada, is this just scare tactics or is there actual truth in this?

14:01 - Which is worse in the american diet? Lack of nutrients or over eating?

14:25 - I'm trans and doing HRT. When signing informed consent, it was pretty much "we have no idea what this will do in 20 years". What research is there being done about transition medicine?

16:39 - You've mentioned in previous episodes that you yourself see a doctor. Why do doctors have doctors? Why don't you treat yourself?

20:04 - Do you have any thoughts about weight loss surgery? It seems like a drastic solution but for one w/ morbid obesity and looking at the poor long-term success of just diet and exercise, it's tempting.

20:50 - I'm always worried that I'm not getting enough fruits/vegetables. I see the recommendation of 5-10 servings a day, but I'm lucky to get 2-3. I'm pretty healthy (jogged 3 miles at 6am!) but I worry.

21:42 - How dead is brain dead?
