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 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.

    The Detox Scam: How to spot it, and how to avoid it � Science-Based Medicine

    Someone brought this topic up on facebook today, and it's a great one and a personal one because I was totally swept up into this food fad thing this year--and I feel like a numbskull still about it. And naturally the best way to feel better for me is to recover by finding knowledge to prevent it from happening again.

    The story of detox diets is not a new one, it's been played for years and years.. being spun into nearly every diet fad ever. Recently, it's been spun into juicing.. which is potentially pretty harmful for the body. "Spend 14 days drinking nothing but juice and it will rid you of your horrible cheeseburger sins! Only $149.99 a week! Delivered to your door! You don't even have to step foot outside and you're already going to be healthier for ordering!" Only diets and fashion could trick people into thinking being dizzy, nauseous, cramping in pain, and fatigued is a good thing and the right thing for them to do.



    The only ways to truly detox are to eat right, exercise, get sleep, drink water, be proactive about your health, and be proactive about your environmental and psychological health.

    If there is any hippy website I hate, it's greenmedinfo.

    New Study Signals Wheat-Autism Link | GreenMedInfo | Blog Entry

    Not only do the massively profit off of the people visiting the site and, in turn, buying their products.. but they twist science constantly to their cause. They purposefully mislead people. One of my friends always links their bullshit, and she's totally swept up by them. I'm not angry at her.. I'm angry at the site. The site throws around just enough science-y sounding things to convince people but twists it in such a delicate way as to make themselves sound right while, in fact, evading any true misrepresentations and allowing people to 'assume' the misrepresentations they lead them directly into.

    And as vaccines + autism are showing no link and more and more people are believing it.. people are quickly looking for new sources of blame.

    Wheat has the same problems as anything else though. Wheat has been consumed for centuries, autism is a recent epidemic (though the prevalence rates are a bit of a mystery because it is a recent diagnosis), and the two just don't correlate even close enough to be a source of blame. But throw some IgG's in there, and some protein-this-and-that, and suddenly you have something scary sounding enough.


    I really think we need a name for these guys. they aren't quite hippies (as I can associate peace-sign-throwing, weed-smoking loving hippies of the 60s with the word too), they're not hipsters at all though they have that 'I rebel against the norm' attitude, they aren't foodies because that ranges from Andrew Zimmerman style all the way to whole foods only persons and raw vegans. And Raw vegans don't cover the boundaries, many vegetarians are completely sensible, and vegans even have a bit of merit to them in and of themselves.


    No, this is a particular trend of .. duped people, pseudo science, buzzword overkill, and angry resentful stuff without really seeing who's profitting off of all of these movements and paradoxical rebel-against-american-mentalities-with-american-mentalities. I was thinking about the neckbeard thread where I was unaware there was a perfect term for the females--legbeards. There's got to be a cutesy term that defines this.

    So if anyone knows of a good term for these guys I'm all ears.
