This seems apropos:



Loved this further explanation below the comic (The Red Flags of Quackery v2 | Sci-ence):
Quote:
Helps Your Body…: I once met an Osteopath at a small gathering. I nearly bit my tongue off as she told me about how she “helps the body heal itself.” Which is a clever way of saying “I don’t do anything, but feel free to thank me when you get better. Toodles!” Also note that if your body was really “off balance” or needed help “removing toxins,” you’d be at a real doctor, not buying herbs at CVS, because your skin would be yellow and you wouldn’t be able to stand."
Note: Osteopaths do actually receive a medical education comparable to MDs, but the origin of the profession was a little dubious.

Like! And I can add to those X 100.

It's interesting how much is being debunked in recent months.

It's interesting yet not at all surprising.
Food, additives, and their general healthfulness aren't all the media treats the general public poorly about.

I love salt. But it is really tirying when everything we buy is salty.

Salt restriction

KFC, Zatarain, Hamburger Helper, Ramen Noodle packets, bullion cubes, so far. Any other foods we find too salty? Just add to the list.

I have to agree with you Andy. I have had some dishes come out of the kitchen that were almost garbage due to the salt content. What brilliant person ever came up with the concept of salting every single layer or addition to a dish?

I haven't had them for awhile, but as I recall, Zatarain's came out with a low sodium version of some of their stuff. It's not bad, but I do prefer me some real hambone!

Having lived in South Texas for four years, I can honestly say, I never had Cajun food. The closest I ever came to it was Grits with an egg over it. And there sure were a lot of Cajuns in the town I lived in. Had to be for the shrimping fleet.
