One could make a full-time job of pointing out such scientific illiteracy.
"What we know from science, not just cavemen, is that a diet full of fruits, vegetables, fruits and plenty of whole grains, lean protein and healthy fats – that’s what leads to longevity," said Keri Gans, spokeswoman for the American Dietetic Association.
"Let’s think about how the cavemen lived. They didn’t have very long lives," she added. "Unfortunately it’s another fad. It’s another gimmick of a diet."
First of all, I must register my displeasure with using the term "caveman" to denote what we’re about. It’s bullshit and does us no good. What we’re talking about is the tool making, cunning, hunting, gathering, movement, migration, social milieu, and evolutionary logic of Wild Human Animals. That’s more broad, more widely integrated, and impervious to ridicule. Although…we’ll unfortunately still have to deal with moron illiterates such as "Keri Gans, spokeswoman for the American Dietetic Association," quoted above. You can’t fix stupid.
Listen, dipshit: you don’t even know what you’re talking about. Grains were not, ever, part of the equation until 10-15,000 years ago. They just weren’t, and I haven’t the time or inclination to explain it to you. Go get a good anthropology and archaeology text. Read it. Oh, and you can start right here. That should take only five minutes of your generally wasted time.
But in short, even more than being highly impractical to have consumed many, if any, grains, it likely would have been impossible for most throughout our last 2.5 million years of evolution.
"…Fruits, vegetables, fruits…lean protein…healthy fats?" So lemme get this straight. Double up on the fruits — which were fibrous, tart, and seasonal for wild humans — eschew the fattiest, nutritionally dense animals in the face of winter or an ice age, and, no doubt, lube up on industrial lubricants.
The raw beans are broken down to thin flakes, which are then percolated with a petroleum-based hexane solvent to extract the soya oil…The oil then goes through a process of cleaning, bleaching, degumming and deodorizing to remove the solvent and the oil’s characteristic “off” smells and flavors. The lecithin that forms a heavy sludge in the oil during storage used to be regarded as a waste product, but now it has been turned into a valuable market in its own right as an emulsifier.
"Healthy fats…leads to longevity." Yea, righto.
Next stupidity: "They didn’t have very long lives." Now, I must ask, is this something on which you have done original research, or are you just regurgitating the vomit you were fed? Here, another five minutes of your time. And what the hell? Another five.
"Another gimmick of a diet," eh? Well, then, why shan’t we just add profound arrogance to the (growing) list of offenses?
Who do you think you are, anyway? I’ll tell you who you are: you’re a pompous ass, know-nothing who’s falsely elevating herself to a position of adequacy to comment on — not to mention criticize — something you’re unqualified to even think about, yet. Shorter version: a moron spouting drivel in a laughably authoritative manner and too ignorant to know.
What we’re talking about are people who have taken charge of their health because whoring institutions, such as the one you represent, have failed them miserably, while all they get for your incompetence (and even more whoring) are admonitions of judgment, guilt, shame. It is you who should be ashamed — along with your fellow hucksters.
And how have they gone about achieving such "miracles" for themselves while using their own minds, logic, self experimentation — and on their own authority?
They’ve ditched the real gimmick of a diet…that 10,000-yr-old agricultural monstrosity and disgrace you and your cronies are busy peddling; and instead, have embraced a diet suitable for human consumption that’s 2.5 million years in the making.
