The original article does mention that he did have surgery to have the tumor removed, he just opted out of the chemo treatments
    And preying on people's lack of education to make money. Disgusting.

    My friend always posts on fb from fear mongering sites like food babe and green med tv. I tried to very nicely point out that these people make and market themselves and collect tons of money that really isn't getting repurposed for anything but lining pockets. There's a reason those disclaimers need to be legally claimed. And why doctors practicing natural medicine have lost their licensures sometimes in modern medicine before turning to natural medicine.

    I agree.ugh I've seen food babe bs. I don't have a lot of friends who can't/don't think critically and I'm quick to post a link that explains why they're a dumb ass. So this was a friend of a friend and I couldn't reply to the post. I tried explaining to my roommate that kombucha can't get you drunk. Didn't get it and said she was gonna bitch at the manager. I pointed out that the bottle says
    contains trace amount of alcohol
    smh.I feel bad for the employee. She thinks organic is healthier and that you lose weight by eating organic, so yeah

    Let's get wasted off Kombucha! hahaha.. ... I mean, yeah, organic food is healthy. But the organic label isn't really so regulated. Organic fresh vegetables has a VASTLY different nutrient density and health rating as organic pop-tarts. The label itself doesn't mean you're in the clear.

    My sister's still stuck in the 80s and 90s somehow, thinking fat-free foods help you lose weight by virtue of being fat free. It's like pulling teeth trying to get her used to the idea of eating enough calories to sustain her energy levels so she can actually lose weight vs mini starve/binge sessions she tends to do with these 1 1/2 meals a day. Low fat low protein diets are just.. bleh. All around bleh.

    yeah I can't imagine low protein diets being good, I've inadverntently done them same with low carb (never intentional) and i felt so weak it wasn't fun.

    I tried to explain that fermentation no matter what produces alcohol. she's not super smart, but i really think the most people who are vastly successful in the rat race are of average intelligence and don't question things, or really think critically. probably .01% of successful people are really smart but that's because they had the oppurtunity or created the oppurtunity to do what they were good at and didn't answer to any one, did so just long enough to break off on there own. But you know everyone thinks they're a genius, no one is. ok maybe some are, but you or me probably aren't

    After that stunt I did last night (thinking my plant was a monster because of the shadow on the wall) I'm definitely not.

    tbh i don't think they use eye tricks as a measure of intelligence. then again i don't professionally measure intelligence so prove some other way how you're not a genius, i don't think you are, but that evidence would be thrown out of court.
