    Thank you so very much for another excellent podcast. It is helpful to get a much more “balanced” view of IGF-1.
    Very best to you both.

    Congratulations to the Bagnulo family! Twins! In Costa Rica no less, so glad to hear everything went well.
    My stunned reaction made me realize the bond I feel with you two as a result of the last two years listening and learning from The Health Edge. The “news to use” provided has directly changed my life and health, and the inspiration sparked to dig deeper is exciting and fun, I’m deeply grateful. Please keep the occasional personal updates coming, your tribe cares.
