    Anecdotally speaking

    Post by graham64 on Fri Sep 15 2017, 22:07

    Don't forget: The plural of anecdote is data

    This purpose of this point is to preserve the true meaning of Raymond Wolfinger’s oft-misquoted aphorism.

    Yes, data is just anecdotes that someone has paid for.

    I've seen complaints that Virta Health is "just" a commercial operation. Well that's partly true but at least they are in a position to collect and publish the anecdotes they collect as data. That won't shut up the McAlpines or the dieticians, obviously, but perhaps some other doctors might take notice.

    Virta Health maybe a commercial operation but as they will do nothing to line the pockets of Big Pharma and go against dietary dogma their bound to come under attack from the DODO's

    Things are starting ti change, albeit glacially slowly

    still too much emphasis on weight which for you, me and a bunch of others is non-causal and more likely a symtom of insulin resistance.

    Half good

    They're all over blogs and Twitter at the moment, along with dieticians of course. The PURE study was rather unconvincing but they all need to chime in and refute it anyway. Along with David (Where's My Cheque?) Katz and Frank (Mr Unilever) Hu.

    Yes there does seem to be a surge in vegan propaganda at present and they have got the backing of the BDA too Rolling Eyes

    Meanwhile whilst I'm on about the BDA

    In a word, nutribollocks!

    Vegan diets aren't too bad when you add them to meat though <G> oh and miss out all the Grainz and "veg oils". But for babies, growing children, pregnant mothers, are they trying to produce a stunted generation? I believe yes.

    As Any Fule Kno, protein leaks out through kidneys that have been damaged by GLUCOSE . . .
