Episode Summary

EDIT
In this episode, Penn and Teller offer you a new diet-that you don't eat until the show is over. Sounds like bullsh**? Well it is and so are many health products that claim will make you a healthier person and loose weight. Such as the Hollywood diet, where you don't eat anything for 48 hours except for water and the Hollywood diet shake. Penn and Teller take a look into this diet and see one person's weekend on it.
Also in this episode, Penn and Teller take a look into the movement to ban genetically engineered food, even though it may produce more food for the poor and may even make it healthier. Special Guest Experts include: Fred Anderson (Dieter) Charles Margulis (Greenpeace Spokesperson) Leah Walton (Regional Organizer, Greenpeace LA) Terri Lomax (Professor of Botany and Plant Pathology, Oregon State University) Robyn Anderson (Dieter) Laura Fraser (Author) Phillip Barnett, MD, PhD (Endocrinologist) Norman Borlaug (Agricultural Scientist, Nobel Prize Winner) Juliano (Raw Foods Chef) Alex Avery (Director of Research and Education, Center for Global Food Issues) Simon Harris (Field Organizer, Organic Consumers Association) Carolyn Katzin (Nutritionist)moreless
