THE SOY BURGER: Burger King's Impossible Whopper Has 18 Million Times More Estrogen Than Beef
I don't agree with many of the statements made in this video, but some of it might be valid. The guy is very opinionated and probably mostly wrong, but he does seem quite sure of himself.

A Twitter friend of mine tweeted the following list of foods that are supposed to increase longevity. Not any explanation, but there's the list:
1) broccoli sprouts (sulforaphanes)
2) pomegranate (elligantans, which are converted to Urolithin A by our gut microbes)
3) spinach (folate)
4) strawberries (fisetin)
5) mushrooms (glutathione and L-ergothioneine) - best kind: porcini

camel: I wonder what a smoothie made using those ingredients would taste like. I think I'd go heavy on the pomegranate and the strawberries, but it should be possible to get enough of the other items to do some good I'd imagine.

Paleo Diet: Gregor pretty much pulls the rug out from under the paleo diet. For that matter any kind of low-carb diet is pretty much debunked. Avoid processed sugar, process flour, saturated fats, trans fats, don't overdo the protein and consume lots of veges, beans, fruits, and nuts and you've got yourself a pretty good formula for good health.

I'd love to try some of these products. The Pogo Bars look really good, but so do the entrees!
