Earlier this week, San Francisco Board of Supervisors unanimously voted to ban e-cigarettes in San Francisco. It will be the first city to do so.

In the game of "which one is unlike the others," it's really not obvious that amongst alcohol, chewing tobacco, marijuana, tobacco cigarettes, and e-cigarettes, that you'd pick e-cigarettes as the one with the highest danger and harm potential.

A blanket vape ban feels like a rash, politicized, and overly emotional policy making...and I'll be explaining why.

I also talk about the recent comments by the Pentagon eyeing the ketogenic diet, and the negative effects the popular anti-aging drug metformin has on exercise.
