Episode 1602

As more and more people have become wise to the negative health effects of consuming things like rice, they are embracing more low-carb, keto-friendly options such as cauliflower rice instead. But this growing trend of eschewing the carbs for healthier options has started to cut into the sales of traditional rice in states like Arkansas so much now that state lawmakers there have passed a bill banning the sale of cauliflower rice. Read the shocking details of this below.

Arkansas Legislature Saves Residents From Accidentally Eating Rice Made From Cauliflower: https://reason.com/2019/03/29/arkansas-legislature-saves-residents-fro/

This is yet another all-out assault on real food and keto says health podcaster and international bestselling author of KETO CLARITY Jimmy Moore who encourages people to stand against this kind of thing when it happens. Their stated reason for doing this is because of the economic implications on the state of Arkansas being much more important than the collective health choices of the residents there. Watch to hear Jimmy share more about this and how truly ridiculous it is in this video.
