Watched this fool once, realized a can of Doctor Pepper gave out better health advice than this quack.

Great Janitor: Watched this fool once, realized a can of Doctor Pepper gave out better health advice than this quack.


He still pushes the whole "don't consume cholesterol" bit.

That said, cues to eat are real, so the assload of healthy people eating bad food on every show sure isn't helping.
I've also read that one's body changes when it expects a meal such that watching a commercial might stimulate you to deposit more fat. That is a nasty thought.

I make it a rule to only trust doctors on daytime tv when they wear scrubs.

You can tell he's a doctor because he wears scrubs at all times. Real doctors always wear scrubs in case they have to perform an appendectomy on a moment's notice.

He is a real cardiologist in NYC and still practices. He means well but often goes too far with shows like this and the "IS CYANIDE IN YOUR APPLE JUICE?" episode.

I refer to him as Dr. Fear.

You will die someday of something and perhaps by doing as he says you may indeed live a bit longer. Maybe...if you don't get hit by a car crossing a street or a plane crash or any other number of random events not involving your health.

Or you may just not have any fun in life if you listen to him. Either way moderation is the key. Don't watch him unless its a show about women being insecure about their clitoris size.

He's a heart surgeon, not a general surgeon.

Mrs Thunder gets new recipe ideas from them. I like watching Drive-Ins Diners & Dives and noting where to eat the next time I travel. I saw an episode featuring my parents' town before heading to visit them. We ate well those nights.

That's... terrifying. Having discovered him through idle channel surfing, I thought as you did; that he was just fearmongering for ratings, but still retained a basic grasp of medicine. Since that time, he's gone way off the deep end.

I hope for his patients' sake that he remembers enough about medicine to know precisely when and where he's sold out. I suppose if he's a cardiologist, the risk to his patients is probably minimal - there are lots of quack "cures" for cancer and other slow-developing conditions characterized by nebulous symptoms, and relatively few for cardiovascular disease. Attempting to treat a heart attack or stroke with quackery tends to results in a patient who dies before the bill comes due. (Attempting to prevent CV events by natural means like putting down the farking cheezburger and going out for a brisk walk or bike ride is surprisingly effective, but it's hard for quacks to make money off it, so the only people who recommend that sort of thing are actual doctors.)

You know what they call alternative medicine that works? Medicine.

You said everything I came to say and even provided a link to Respectful Insolence, a fantastic blog that shines light on crap like this. Well done, sir

Very few people get extremely fat from making and eating the stuff on foodie shows, and all those who do would get at least as fat and a lot less healthy if they didnt.. They would get fat eating complete shiat fastfood and packaged goods. The kind of people who are 'into' food are on the whole less likely to be fat and much less likely to be unhealthy than those who aren't. guy is a prat.

Ahhh, Gianni. AKA "I'm Italian therefore I must be hot and have more than the usual cleavage". Not saying she isn't damn fine, but it's just funny how you can spot the Italian chick a mile away.

Food Network caused me to associate food with sex in my late teens, just as I went off to college. And that's a good thing.

The only good dates I've ever had involved me doing the cooking.

If Food Porn has any of the effects that Porn Porn has it should result in less eating. Or... what's the eating equivalent of masturbation? McDonalds? Briefly satisfying but leaving you unfulfilled.

Occam's Disposable Razor:

Respectful Insolence has been on my daily blogroll since before I can remember. His recent essay on SBM vs EBM should be required reading before anyone goes to a physician. (I missed the breast-cancer vs prostate-cancer subthread in the SGK flamewar a couple of days ago. Prostate cancer's a great example of where increased screening might lead to a worse outcome, because of the complications from unnecessary surgeries.)

And Orac, if you ever read this, I'll spare everyone the CSB and merely answer that yes, it does.

Yeah, but if I start eating well and working out, I'll get all sexified.

I'll be banging chicks left and right, then I'll catch some nasty STD that will shorten my life anyway.

I learn a lot from watching Good Eats; Alton Brown explains the science behind WHY you do things a certain way in the kitchen. Plus, his recipes are very methodical and easy to follow for a novice like me.

I also watch No Reservations and The Layover, but not necessarily because of food. Anthony Bourdain is really good at exploring cultures in ways you haven't really seen before, and his production crew is top-notch. It's not really a tv show as much as it is a series of well-shot, well-produced documentaries.

If anything, the food shows encouraged me to try new things, and when I cook at home, I tend to eat healthier.

i want to bang Giada and Rachael so bad it makes my back teeth ache. ache, i tell you. to be honest, i think Martha is one good looking broad too, and i would love to cook for her, pour wine for her, dance with her, seduce her and get her to do unspeakable things. oh yes. yes i would.

--these days i have to babysit my 82 yr old mom a lot. she likes having on some Doctors show with this model handsome young fellow with a Mark Trail lantern jaw, some old Jewish stereotype in a suit, a broad with wide hips and maybe some other person, they are all doctors, supposedly. the show is abysmal. simply pathetic. if i were their parents i'd be so pissed i wasted money sending their little TV asses to med school.
