Chazerai is Yiddish for “stuff.” In this episode of The Foodcast, I explore a decree from the World Health Organization (WHO) that eating meat causes cancer and put it in context so you know how seriously to take the threat. Then I help a friend who is considering giving up meat and all animal products by advising what nutrition deficiencies he’ll need to work around. We also discuss the best fish to eat, the apple cider vinegar fad, the dangers of eating bread and more.
