We're all gonna die.


The NEW ICE AGE is coming!!!!!!

Rob Crawford

Sounds once more that the goal isn't to find out what's actually healthy, but what they can use to push a peculiar (vegan) diet.

Rick Ballard

The important question is whether Big Fish or Big Egg will put up sufficient dough to fund the denialist counter models necessary to discredit the scientistic efforts of the fear mongers.

I'll think about that one after I make the critical decision tomorrow morning regarding ham, steak or sausage with my eggs.


Just for the fun of it, and because my daughter's health calls for it, I decided to take probiotics (25 billion teensy colonies) to see if I detected a change in how my gut responded. After all, I'd rather have good colonies than bad colonies doing their work down there.

We'll see what happens.


I'm starting to think that these "researchers" don't know what the hell they're talking about.

"I'm starting to think that these "researchers" don't know what the hell they're talking about."


Come now, the point of the exercise is funding for further research.

Scientismists always know what they're talking about.


Is TomM having some kind of midlife crisis?-- enough with the nutrition stuff already. What's next for TomM? leg warmers and Zumba classes at the Y?


NK is TOM wearing those YOGA pants that show of his package/crackage?
Rick, why do you hate SCIENCE?

Frau Spiegelei

Certainly not Kinder eggs!


Eggs may kill you, eventually, but let's get some perspective about more dangerous things;



Wait a minute. Why are the solons at NYT worried about diet and health when most, if not all, of them yearn for the rest of us an early, lightly medically-intervened, death? Y'know, to "bend the cost curve" downward.

I'm too much of a rube, obviously.


Lyle-- they want healthy people when they give us the needle, or untie the burning longboat, or wave goodbye to the ice flow. They find that more... poignant

Hitler was a vegetarian


Who cares about this healthy eating crap. Smoke pot, get STDs & have a good time!

Godwin's law in a diet thread!


Narciso. This Admin. is so completely corrupt. Most of it is based on ideology or politics, but a lot of it is based on partnerships that keep the ball rolling left.
IF, there was a problem with not mirandizing the p.o.s., then why were they allowed to question him at all???? Obama and Holder are sick mutherfuxers.


OMG, Gus, you are too funny. LUN


No sequester cuts in the DOJ's office. Actually I think Americans would take a plane being on time over flunkies in the DOJ twiddling their thumbs and ignoring CIA warnings about radicalized aliens ,legal or illegal in our country.


My Dad has congestive heart failure,lung cancer and last week was hospitalized with an intestinal infection.The hospital dietician sent him home with a recommended list of food.One of my siblings went grocery shopping and Dad grumbled,"don't get anything on that damned list,just get some eggs."

Walter Sobchak

I found a way to reduce my blood pressure and decrease my risk of a stroke.

I cancelled my subscription to the NYTimes, and stopped reading their website.

I feel much better now.


Godwin's law in a diet thread!

Godwin's law is actually in every thread, whether or not Hitler is ever mentioned. It's a law. :)


Me, too, Walter. Right behind foolish nutrition articles I place stupid medical tests that tell you nothing useful.


Gina Kolata? Does she have a sister named Pina?


Hartley, you are under arrest.


I went to a NY TIMES article today. I think I followed an LUN on JOM. Anyway, reading the comment thread after any article is literally painful. The l-tards are so illogical and deluded, that it's hard to relate to what they are saying. Most of it starts with BUSH DID THIS...or BUSH JUST MADE STUFF UP....etc etc. I consider these leftists my enemy. I do. They use the very taxes that we provide to live nicely, yet they hate us.


Another Instalanche


Gina Kolata's sister is Chiquita Banana.


So Bittman's Mediterranean diet is just a warmed over low fat/high carb diet the USDA started pushing decades ago--at the onset of the US obesity explosion--with a nice name, of course.


Actually, Bittman's Med Diet is a moderate fat, moderate carb (and avoiding starches and many sugars), moderate protein diet.

Can't live forever. And, any health kick is fakery.


What's next for TomM? ...Zumba classes at the Y?

NK - Was TomM sneaking off up to Maine for some "Zumba classes"?

That might explain his absence a few months back.

Knoll's Law of Media Accuracy: Everything you read in the newspapers is absolutely true—except for the rare story of which you happen to have firsthand knowledge. —Erwin Knoll, editor, "The Progressive"

Gell-Mann Amnesia Effect: "...You read with exasperation or amusement the multiple errors in a story, and then turn the page to national or international affairs, and read as if the rest of the newspaper was somehow more accurate about Palestine than the baloney you just read. You turn the page, and forget what you know." --Michael Crichton

"Nothing can now be believed which is seen in a newspaper. Truth itself becomes suspicious by being put into that polluted vehicle." —Thomas Jefferson, Letter to John Norvell (June 11, 1807)
