Next up a friend shared this with me on FB which has some pretty interesting information about 10 american foods that are banned in other countries. Canada according to the list only has 3 of the 10 foods banned which is somewhat worrisome. You can find that list http://eatlocalgrown.com/article/11944-banned-foods.html
Look at the name of the author though: "Dr Mercola".
That moron has spent years spewing misinformation and bad science to make a fortune out of selling his 'dietary supplements'. Like so many of these scheisters, they have a product to sell, and do it by taking advantage of people's propensity to worry when someone tells them they're eating poison.
Personally I'd avoid reading anything this piece of shit writes, as it's all aimed at making himself more money by dishonest means.
I'm sure that if you look into it he's twisted the truth somewhere, as that's his MO with everything he puts in print.
I agree that diet determines how healthy you are, but I'm not going to start buying this asshole's snake oil because he says I need it.
Oh wow I did'nt notice that until now
Yah Mercola is a quack as far as I am concerned. I've read more than my fair share of stuff about him and his nonsense practice. He is no different than other "experts" in the field who have their own little product agenda that they market to suckers.
I should take that link down and really go over who the authors are in the future before sharing.
btw I just found this by googling Dr Mercola...http://www.quackwatch.org/11Ind/mercola.html
Personally I post this health stuff with no agenda of my own, I simply want to get the opinions of smarter and older people than me and KVR seems like a good place. I trust the opinions of a few people on here because i've been following their posts and most of it checks out IMO. I do try to approach most of the articles I read with a critical mind but still it's always good to get the opinions of others.
Oh and about the gut flora issues, I have had problems with that myself and looked up quite a ton about it. Yes in the worst case scenario they do "fecal transplants" which is pretty gross but that is like WORST case scenario. You almost have to be dying because you can't s*** properly.
Oh and regarding the fecal transplant make sure you don't do what this person asked.. * I know most of you would'nt but i thought this was pretty funny in a demented way* https://answers.yahoo.com/question/inde ... 159AAAPOEs
