Bob Lazar is an honest man. 100% true & hasn't made a dime off of it. He's a brilliant engineer as well. As an engineer myself, I'm a very good judge of character. Not too mention so much of what he said has been proven true over the years. 115

If I am not mistaking there is an impact on body cell with food like sugar when there is a disease like cancer. Cancer love sugar to reproduce so what you eat sometimes can affect some cells in the body. Cool podcast guys.
