I thoroughly respect and understand Wooo's attempts to conceal her identity. There are a lot of jerks who would LOVE to make her life difficult. Sidereal too -- her professional future could be made a no-go before it has a chance to really start -- she hasn't minced words when it comes to the malfeasance of her field! I still hope that "outing" Lifextension isn't going to be a problem for her!
Me -- I LOVE being in the position I am! I can say what I think about assholes and their professional associations in any field I want! What can anybody do? I don't depend on any business or organization for my livelihood or any benefits. Damaged reputation? BULLSHIT. :-D
I just read the short AND the long versions of the report by the Dieticians for Professional Integrity about the annual RDs' conference. Seems like there's a ban on photography on the "floor" where all the sponsors display! Wonder why that could be -- you think they may not be proud of the propaganda they're spreading? Maybe they think it looks bad that Coca Cola and Frito-Lay are providing informational materials to dieticians and YOUR CHILD'S SCHOOL PRINCIPAL on what a healthy diet is?
Do you suppose there MIGHT be some bribery and malfeasance at play, when the AUTHORITIES tell you that it's fine to eat all the starch you want, so long as you take the stairs instead of the elevator at the mall? Perhaps the cheap, synthetic vitamins added to the sugar-based cereals and pastries aren't REALLY part of a NUTRITIOUS breakfast???
We can't allow these doubts!!! It's better if Mom doesn't know that her guidance about what she should feed her kids, so that they can grow up healthy and be "the best they can be", comes straight out of the advertising department of Monsanto....
I left what I consider a scathing comment, naming a name which the (short) web article was too cautious to add. It will be interesting to see if it passes the moderator.
There's dirty work at the crossroads, babies! I consider it my duty and privilege to pour contempt and scorn for the duplicitous and absolutely CRIMINAL companies, associations, and -- yes -- INDIVIDUALS who are making big money by fucking you over. Being old and retired is a goddam LUXURY.
Feel free to vent here! :-D I LOVE it!
