160: Gary Collins: Former FDA Special Agent Exposes Big Pharma And Medical Corruption


Brief Bio:

Gary Collins was a special agent for the FDA. Now, he’s a ruthless consumer watchdog—down in the dirt trying to keep the pharmaceutical and medical industries clean and honest, which is quite a monumental task.

In this week’s episode, Gary pulls back the curtain on what the FDA knows that the public doesn’t—information that may be keeping you from having a better health.


In this episode, you’ll learn:

  • Why you need to be careful with the doctor you choose
  • Why being healthy is a lifestyle–not a diet or “cleanse”
  • How traveling the world teaches you about health and nutrition
  • Here’s why you should avoid extremes in health & nutrition
  • What you need to know about how modern medicine works
  • Why our health is our responsibility
  • How drug companies manipulate research
  • The truth about the drug companies
  • Why you should “shop around” for a good doctor
  • 3 Questions you should ask your doctor
  • Why you need to practice what you preach
  • Why health experts and doctors don’t know everything
  • The biggest mistake people make about their health
  • Why eating right for your genetics is guessing
  • Why ketogenic diets aren’t good long term
  • Why Gary isn’t a fan of blood testing
