dj_bigbird: Kimberly Snyder, celebrity nutritionistStopped reading right there
mamoru: Marcus Aurelius: Cake Hunter: I was behind a guy at an airport salad bar and he kept asking the woman behind the counter if the lettuce was organic. Every time she said that it was, he would say "are you suuuure it is?" and would get even more condescending. He did this four or five times. He finally told her he was allergic to non organic lettuce.I farted near his luggage.Point: me.I was at the deli counter and the woman ahead of me wanted organic ham. I shiat you not.Well, to be fair, the last time she didn't specify, and they served her a slice of rusty iron covered in salt. Of course, this time they could have easily served her a ham-shaped piece of plastic. ;)
nickdaisy: Are eggs fruit?
Bonzo_1116: Duane Dibbley: Barfmaker: "Not only are organic foods generally more nutritious since they are usually grown in better quality soil, but they also do not contain pesticides,"Well that is absolutely not true.That's where I stopped reading. Because not only does "organic" have precisely fark all to do with soil quality, neither does nutrient level. That's determined by the plant's DNA. The most nutritious produce, therefore, must be GMO crops modified for that purpose. Why won't nutritionists, with all the expertise of their made up qualifications, tell us this?Crops aren't GMO'd for more nutrition...they get modded for higher yield, pesticide/herbicide resistance, drought tolerance, longer storage for shipping...just about everything but nutrition or flavor.

Gyrfalcon: sjcousins: Goddammit. Why do people believe that a) their body is full of 'toxins' and b) that your body needs your specific help in the form of magical fruits and elixirs?I swear to god the average human still lives in the dark ages./I eat the skin of many fruits//who can be farked peeling a grape?Because it SOUNDS so good and so right. They feel "bad" and their doctor says there's nothing wrong with them (i.e. they're not sick with a disease and they don't have cancer), so they listen to some dipsh*t on TV or read a supermarket takeout magazine and it tells them they feel tired and irritable because of "toxins" or "liver imbalance" or whatever, and if they take this or drink that or peel their fruit or drink 96 ounces of water a day they'll "purge the toxins" and feel better.And strangely enough, they do! because whatever was intermittently wrong was self-limiting, or genuinely due to a temporary bowel interruption, and they think Aha! I was "toxic" like TV Guru said! and they follow along until the next time they feel "bad" and its on to the next fad fix.Those of us who eat and exercise in moderation and are aware that sometimes you just feel like crap or have a little diarrhea once in a while don't have these issues; but just try to tell Toxic Tillie at work that. She'll look at you with sympathy and try and convert you to the acai berry colon cleanse.
