Here is the concept I found most interesting:
We can say flaxseeds (my example) are good for you or that some part of the seed is good for you. What part survives food processing? What compound results in your body’s metabolism of the seed? What compounds (if any) remain bio-active and move systemically? I think I got that right, feel free to listen and provide feedback. He explains why it is not simple to see the mechanism or reality of why a particular food is good for you.
