Introduction (00:00 – 01:05)
Due to an audio issue, we don’t have a regular Honest to Goodness episode for you this week. Our apologies! To make it up to you, we’re bringing you a classic segment from Janet’s old radio show, Just for the Health of It! Janet hosted this show on Hamilton’s AM 900 CHML station for more than twenty years, bringing in-depth discussions about health and wellness right into people’s homes every Saturday morning.
Main Segment (01:09 – 24:51)
In this segment, Janet talks with Dr. William Davis about his latest book Undoctored: Why Health Care Has Failed You and How You Can Become Smarter Than Your Doctor. Dr. Davis brings a lot of authority to the subject of healthcare: he’s a cardiologist and the New York Times’ bestselling author of the Wheat Bellyseries, which detail how modern, genetically modified “Frankenwheat” has degraded our health and caused myriads of chronic illnesses. In Undoctored, Dr. Davis details how conventional healthcare, much like the food industry, has failed so many people, and what the average patient can do to counteract the bad advice.
Regular episodes will return next week. Thank you for your patience, and we hope you enjoy this special episode!

Recipe (24:52 – 25:55): White Bean and Kale Soup
This is one of my favourite soup recipes, and it’s so easy to make. It can be modified to appease even the pickiest eater; if they don’t like kale, there are so many other wholesome, healthy ingredients!
Sauté onion and garlic in butter or ghee until fragrant (roughly five minutes). Add carrots, broth, and beans, cover and simmer for about twenty minutes until the carrots are softened. Uncover, turn off heat and add kale to wilt, around five minutes. Throw in cooked chicken if you are using and season with salt and pepper to taste.
To serve, shave a few pieces of Parmesan on the top.
