Health News Digest: Food and Nutrition

We discuss the latest in health news. This week, we discovered  that Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump can agree on one thing: Pharma is “getting away with murder,” by inflating the prices of drugs in the US. We also talk all things food and bugs, which coincidently is right up Juliet Jacobs’ alley as the producer for Earth Matters. Find out what we learn about eating insects for protein, a superbug that killed an American woman in India, and whether Nutella really causes cancer.
