It's probably the same 8 people who made all those transactions. Surprised that they even had that many sales!
It's being debunked and torn apart left, right and center. The Obama plan it 'copies' only affected Iraqi refugees (not green card holders, etc) for example. This is just a really, really weak attempt to shift blame away from Trump and at others (like Obama), and you got suckered in. I'm sure there's a "You've been manipulated!" gold star button in the mail for you though. Those who can't actually substantiate their 'fake news everywhere else' pleas are very likely fake news themselves.
Has no one else tried to click on the second link in the summary? It directs to "https://news.slashdot.org/story/17/01/29/068214/gizmodo.com/all-corn-diet-turns-hamsters-into-cannibals-who-eat-the-1791736449" - shouldn't Slashdot editors know how to set up a URL (in addition to preview/edit)? : \
I'm guessing you're just making a joke, but corn is actually not too bad at 7% protein: http://nutritiondata.self.com/...
Not to mention how important fiber is to gut flora, which they're finding also influences many systems, from immune system to mood.
Take a look at the comments in that article; while he's calling out CNN and others for reporting 'fake news', he's the one that's actually making conclusions that aren't based on fact. Scan through the comments, it's not quite the story he claims.
Not yet anyway! And that's PRESIDENT Zuckerberg.
Was going to post something similar...plus, the planet is trying to kill you. They don't have to worry about their suits or habitats failing.
We're never going to be able to test the actual psychological toll of these factors, and they're pretty significant ones, and who knows how they'd affect behaviour over time -- even in the 'right' people. Funnily, the submarine comments above are probably more relevant than people give them credit for. It would add a bit more weight and realism to what they're doing. Or sniper robots set up around the perimeter that might go off at any time.
This is not to discount the simulation, there's still a lot more to prep and plan for, but there's an extreme psychological pressure that we won't know the effect of.
Consider people who say 'darn, frick', etc.. We all know what they're saying, and they're really lying to themselves by 'editing' how they're expressing themselves. Those who would express the actual terms they mean are demonstrating a higher degree of honesty in expression.
Well, no, you targeted me specifically. Cheap shots rarely improve a conversation as well, as something to consider.
Why do you disagree about saturated fats? What do you know that nearly every other dietician doesn't know, and that countless studies have determined? Just because you like how something tastes doesn't mean you should eat it. Dogs love the taste of antifreeze, but it'll kill them every time.
You're probably right about the subsidies, smaller scale agriculture gets even less subsidies. Crops like soy, wheat and corn are helped quite a bit, but part of the reason is that 70% or more of all that's grown is fed to livestock (at least here in Canada and the US.) It's all pretty slanted, and not towards what really improves our health.
10kgs of cow's milk goes into making 1kg of cheese. How can you possibly say that's not 'concentrated'?
By your standards, they shouldn't call 'concentrated orange juice' concentrated either...it's only 3 cans of water to make 4 cans of OJ, and is significantly less concentrated than the 1:10 cheese ratio (at least, by every other standard than yours.
Please show me one credible study that shows animal fats are "good for you". There have been some recent studies indicating they may not be "as bad" as some other studies suggest, but I've not come across any that say they're "good", as-in, everyone should increase how much you eat. Every nutritional body (ADA, WHO, etc) recommends restricting animal fat consumption. For example:
Less than 30% of total energy intake from fats (1, 2, 3). Unsaturated fats (e.g. found in fish, avocado, nuts, sunflower, canola and olive oils) are preferable to saturated fats (e.g. found in fatty meat, butter, palm and coconut oil, cream, cheese, ghee and lard) (3). Industrial trans fats (found in processed food, fast food, snack food, fried food, frozen pizza, pies, cookies, margarines and spreads) are not part of a healthy diet. http://www.who.int/mediacentre...
Do a little research into how much egg is in mayo. (Spoiler: very little.)
You say milk is for kids, yet cheese is concentrated milk. It's like saying Kool Aid is for kids, but eating the packets without water is okay.
Fruits, vegetables, grains, etc, are typically cheaper than animal products. Here in Canada, animal products are heavily subsidized. So while someone might pay $4/lb for hamburger, the actual cost is a lot higher, and it's taxpayer money that makes it more 'affordable'. Produce doesn't get nearly the 'help' from governments. Still, with a little effort, you can save a ton buy sticking to plant-based foods. Certainly more than eating animal products. For a few dollars I can get enough brown rice to last me 15-20 meals. What animal product can you get that will add a substantial amount to 15-20 meals for a few dollars?
For the record I live below the poverty line, and 'consume' less than nearly anyone I know, but thanks for playing. Best you stay out of the profiling industry.
It isn't the studies, it's the industries behind the studies. Livestock is big business in the US and Canada, and have powerful lobbies and influence school programs very heavily. Cow's milk is practically devoid of nutrition (short of protein, which virtually ALL of us are already well in excess of), and there are plenty of other common foods that provide the same nutrients in higher amounts, and without the 'baggage' (like saturated fat, hormones, fecal matter, blood, pus, etc). Milk is credited with having iodine for example - fresh milk straight from a cow doesn't have much iodine, it's in the milk because they use iodine to disinfect the machinery. They may as well brag about there being soap in it as well. Vitamin D? It's an additive, an ingredient they add.
There are some interesting books that cover the history of the industry, Cash Cow and Got Milked? are two specifically on dairy, and reveal how cow's milk was lobbied into our fridges, and science and nutrition really had little to do with it. The milk industry has their inane 'Got Milk' campaign, and were willing to provide 'nutritional' information to schools, so long as it helped sell their products. (No human should be consuming ANY animal milk past being weaned, let alone the singularly bizarre act of consuming the milk from ANOTHER species! Give up ALL dairy for a week, then dig into a cheese pizza - you'll really start to see how ill equipped our bodies are at digesting dairy. Most people are just used to feeling a certain way, and don't realize the negative impact it has on how they feel since they've never considered living without it.)
Do some research into the 'four food groups' - why on earth are meat and dairy fully 1/2? Study after study after study after study shows that the more animal products you consume (almost always at the cost of reducing plant-based foods), the more diseases you're likely to inflict on yourself. Yet we get the impression that they ought to be at least fully half our diet. Going further back in time before this influence, there were 8, 12 or more food groups - back when dieticians called the shots, and not industry.
Plant-based food lobbies have much less sway. Just look at the wacky story of Hampton Creek, and the collusion between the egg industry and government agencies because their 'mayo didn't have eggs in it'. Oh, the horror. Unilever (Hellman's) was a part of this as well, and after losing stuck their own eggless vegan mayo on shelves. (Shows how critical eggs are to mayo.)
I could go on, but look at where the studies come from before what the studies say, and it becomes clear why we hear what we hear. These trends (high fat, high protein, gluten-free, paleo) come about because there are industries making profits with products and books to sell, and people desperate for an answer to their health issues. Ever ask why they almost all all focus on increasing animal-based foods?
Want to be healthier? Start where there's less money to be made: eat plants. Fruits, veggies, legumes, whole grains, nuts and seeds. Center your diet around these, and chances are you'll find yourself feeling better and see your health improve. Simply put: if you see a commercial for it, chances are you're better off not eating it.
hahaha - are you having a laugh? Okay, pretending for a minute this is actually true (let's see some evidence, apparently the US dumped money into Russian campaigns, but that's fairly legitimate and above-board - if Putin or Russia publicly funded US candidates, I wouldn't be too chuffed, if it's legal) no one has had a snowball's chance in hell for decades of upsetting the dominant power regime in Russia.
