Yo Soy Pi$$ed Off

Let’s review: Don’t eat a damn thing anybody TELLS you to. Just don’t eat too MUCH of anything you want to.

Study casts doubt on soy’s heart benefits

So ~ I will tell the scientific foodie community to bite me because I’m sick of them and their track record, the sum of which seems to be as follows:.

10 years from now, whatever they told you was great for you NOW will kill you by THEN.
And what they tell you will kill you NOW WON’T kill you by then.

Got eggs?

    I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: the body is a combination of thousands of feed-back and feed-forward loops, so taking one variable, controlling the entry criteria of a study so that every real-life counter-influence is eliminated (for example only studying a cholesterol lowering drug in people who have not yet had a heart attack), and then extrapolating this to the general population is idiotic.
    There’s a good perspective on animal carcinogenicity testing and this very thing here:

    I bought a dozen eggs last night. I never pay attention to these “studies”, except for amusement purposes.

    If they knew what they were doing they wouldn’t have ditched the food groups for the Pyramid of Confusion or that magic prism crap. CS Lewis once wrote that people were eating their dinners and feeling better long before we knew word one about vitamins and minerals, and would be eating dinner and feeling better long after some other theory came along.
    The moral of the story is that if you’ve eaten yourself into a tight spot, there’s nothing for it but to work your way back out. No substitute for hard work…

    Yeah, and despite what is popular for even the CDC to say, salt is good for you.
    My dad just had heart surgery (valve replacement), and they found his arteries were clean as a whistle. I will continue to eat whatever cholesterol I want. My only concern will be weight gain.

    I just eat what I want. If it kills me, I die happy.

    Well, I must admit to taking supplemental vitamins from time to time. These provide three element essential to human life: sugar, chocolate, and fat.
    Caffeine, alas, isn’t included in this product.

    Wahoo, maybe this will keep people from trying to replace my bacon cheeseburger w/ textured soy protein. No it does not taste the same.

    Typing out Lewis Black’s “What’s Up with Eggs?” rant wouldn’t do it justice. If you can find a clip anywhere, it must be one of the funniest things I’ve ever seen. Then he goes off on how the FDA is going to start putting ingredients and nutrition labels on water.
