100,000 times more potent than metformin!!!
This sort of thing makes me very VERY angry. All of us here realize how potent diet is in bolstering health, but bitches like this, who claim that eating an occasional curry is equivalent to a CURCUMIN experiment, make everyone look stoopid.
No wonder most of my friends don't believe certain foods impact health. Frauds and grifters dominate the conversation with their ravings about the benefits of junk and unrealistically-necessary quantities of medicinal substances. Resveratrol, raspberry ketones, acai, blueberries, cinnamon, turmeric....
If these shills REALLY had the well-being of their fellow humans at heart, we'd get rational, practical, PRACTICABLE recommendations, with caveats for those who might have trouble with their suggestions.
NO. We get blanket raves for dangerous exercises and worthless "supplements" of things NOBODY needs. Hypothetical tweaks that were never tested. Extrapolation of the results of one group to entirely different and inappropriate groups.
When reputable INDIVIDUALS present these promoters, they're lending a mantle of respectability where it is not deserved. It doesn't matter whether or not they're on our LC or clean-food team -- if they're not being scientifically straight, they're the enemy of the message, and i resent it.
