I couldn't bear to continue reading on the blogs and facebook this morning -- the stoopid was getting really thick. "OMG, when you eat asparagus, your urine stinks because DETOX!" :-O
Okay, i'm used to that kind of thing. I rarely comment anymore.
I followed a link on MDA to what was supposed to have been a summary of Prof. Noakes' talk at the recent CapeTown convention. It must have been the opening speech, because it was just the same-ol'-same-ol' public criticism of LCHF by entrenched academics who see their career-theories crumbling. How many times will we hear the same story? TN seemed philosophical but aggrieved -- though they ignored science, they were sincere believers....
WHEN ARE WE GOING TO TAKE OFF THE GLOVES? When "the other side" lies like a rug, why do we insist on playing like gentlemen? This is not the first time i've resolved to speak the truth, the whole truth and nothing but, and whenever i come up against some mendacious dickweed, go right ahead and call him/her a FUCKING LIAR.
Like Dr. Kendrick with his arch-enemy Sir Rory Statin, playing nice just doesn't work. Those assholes are willing to say and do anything to protect their phony-baloney jobs here (name that movie!) -- we should be willing to be JUUUUST a little bit unladylike, in defense of Truth as well as public welfare. THEY are in it for money and power; WE are in it because they are hurting the ones we love.
All you have to do is hang out on the internet, on sites where "ordinary people" congregate, to hear what a hash has been made of people's understanding of nutrition and health. It's a SLOUGH. The press might actually cover it better, and the public pay a little more attention, if there were a little "blood" (figuratively speaking) involved.
...Kinda like a road-side accident. Rubber-neckers can't resist.
