Listener Q&A:

As compiled, deciphered, edited and sometimes read by Brock Skywalker Armstrong, the Podcast Sidekick and Audio Ninja.

Is Baby Powder Healthy?

Preston says: He is fresh out of the shower and wants to know your opinion about Baby Powder (specifically talc). Is there a link to cancer? He sees stuff online but is it true?

In my response, I recommend: -EWG's list of talc containing podcasts -HammerNutrition.com Cool Feet (use 15% 80244)

The Best Workout To Look Good Naked

Anonymous says: She feels too big in her clothes. She doesn't want to be super skinny (with a big thigh gap or anything) but she would like to be thin. The catch: she doesn't want to exercise or go on a diet, she just wants to eat normally. Is this even possible?

In my response, I recommend: -This body weight circuit program -Doug McGuff - Body By Science 

Can You Reverse Tooth Cavities?

Chad says: Recently he went to the dentist and they say he needs a root canal. He did some research and has seen that there can be some deleterious effects, long term, from root canals. He would like your opinion and would also like to know if you know of a way to reverse the early stages of an abscess.

In my response, I recommend: -ToxicTeeth.org -Root Canal Cover-Up-Nutritional Cures For Damaged Teeth

How To Get A Stronger Neck

Brock says: I have a serious crick in my neck. The stiffness has been getting worse and worse over the last year (since falling asleep on a plane) to the point where I actually avoid doing long rides on my road bike and primarily ride my commuter. Is there anything I can do myself to strengthen my neck and loosen up adhesions/tightness in there? I am reluctant to go too hard on those little neck muscles and ligaments because they seem very delicate.

In my response, I recommend: -This list of head and neck exercises -The First Rib Mobility exercise here: http://www.allthingsgym.com/overhead-postition-first-rib-mwod/ -Neck traction device
