8 Foods Even The Experts Wont Eat

http://eatlocalgrown.com/article/122...won-t-eat.html

We already don't eat most of those foods, for the same reasons. I am looking to change to grass fed beef.

"But Kastel counters that it’s just common sense to minimize exposure by avoiding the most doused produce, like apples."

Sometimes, common sense is not very common. You can find articles out there that claim that cooking foods in the microwave causes it to become radioactive; that's not true, either. The fact is, there are many causes of obesity, cardiovascular disease, diabetes and cancer, primarily genetics combined with living long enough to acquire them and too many calories combined with not enough exercise. Check out the research into the Hygiene Hypothesis. It's very interesting.

Sorry, TL. To me, this just looks like another scare-mongering article.

This is a website with an agenda. Read the opening paragraphs in the "About Us" section.

I was delighted to find someone else reads Web articles 'from the bottom up' I always start with About Us----- many tidbits in that!

Then LinkedIn furnishes this:

[Rick Davis, the founder of eatlocalgrown, is a very busy man!]

Rick Davis' Skills & Expertise

E-commerce Social Media Marketing Analytics Email Marketing Guerrilla Marketing Profit Maximization Operational Efficiency Leverage Leadership Management Start-ups Entrepreneurship Website Development Website Promotion SEO Team Building Selling Strategy Sales Sales Operations Social Media Marketing Facebook User Experience Enterprise Software Small Business Web Design Strategic Partnerships Online Advertising Brand Development Social Networking Online Marketing
********************
Those foods---- yeah, those are mostly true---- but perhaps Mr Davis thought that was new news. :)

And I'm with Aunt Bea------ better not come to MY house----except I definitely draw the line at microwave popcorn!

Rant coming----- Wild salmon?---- is that really safer than salmon that live in the wild? Answering my own question----- pretty sure they are, but they're not ''pure" and won't be if we don't stop polluting the ocean.

That article was marketing for the easily swayed----- and shows Mr. Davis at his best. Purportedly.

Personally, I thought most of that list was good advice.

That's not common sense that's common nonsense.

Yeah, the hygiene hypothesis is interesting and I've been saying that for years. What does that have to do with these eight foods?

Scaremongering? Those foods are on that list for good reasons.

Thank you for pointing that out. I hadn't bothered reading it. I had already dismissed the site as a bit wacko from the name of the website.

But, he sounds much more reasonable than I expected from your comment. His agenda seems to be to encourage people to buy local, healthy tasty food and support the farmers who produce. Sounds good to me.

That list summarizes what I had already researched and concluded and gave good reasons.

Correlation does not equal causation. X may be "linked with" Y, but that doesn't prove that X caused Y. Making a decision because something "seems to make sense" is not based on evidence, so it may or may not be true.

Question: Did you wake up this morning? So did I! So did your waking cause mine, or did my waking cause yours? Or are they unrelated? If they're "linked" because they both happened at the same time, what is the hypothesis that explains why?
