Dr. Gearoid O'Laoi, Irish Pathologist - on strategies to achieve health - Podcast Ep14

 Dr. Gearoid O'Laoi is an Irish doctor and Histopathologist who embraced #LCHF 5 years ago - to stunning effect. He is extremely well-researched and shares many insights in our rambling conversation here(!). Gearoid is also a proponent of the Calcium Scan, with a zero score at 63 years of age. He has seen much calcium buildup in the many autopsies he has conducted, and knows the power of the scan to save lives, if only it was widely deployed.

 The best place to catch up with Gearoid is on Twitter:  @Gearoidmuar
