Salute to Vladimir Putin Show

Aug 9, 2016

Health Matters takes a moment to salute ex KGB agent, judo and firearms expert, law school graduate, Russian president and now US political broker Vladimir Putin. This week’s show includes news on short people, the high cost of medical care in the US, and the price of reversing drug overdoses.  It’s worth a listen just to hear Rick and Tony discuss single-serving packages.

Tip: if you are on a sodium restricted diet, remember that more than 75% of your sodium comes from packaged and restaurant foods. Saltiest foods include bread, cheese, deli foods, pizza, soup, “savory snacks” and mixed pasta and meat dishes.
