Dr Bill Ferro: Okay, welcome to another episode of Quacks and Hypochondriacs. I’m your host, Dr. William Ferro from Betr health and with me standing in for my co-host Erin O’Hearn is Barbara Baez, registered dietician. And, we have to admit that you’re also a Betr health coach and former first starting as a client. So, welcome Barbara to the co-hosting position. 

Barbara Baez: Thank you so much, Dr. Ferro. I appreciate the opportunity to be here. I’m so excited about today’s topic. 

Dr Bill Ferro: This is amazing and its really easy shoes to fill because Erin’s really not that good, though she’s an award-winning journalist and a news anchor for ABC and Philly. No pressure, No pressure. Great. So exciting topic today – the best-selling author is with us, Dr. Naidoo, and she has a book called This is Your Brain on Food.
