False Knowledge


Health Food

Most of what passes as common knowledge of what is healthy food is based on junk science. Even people who are not vegans tend to think that a vegetable diet is healthy - yet vegans suffer from more health problems as seen in these studies.

Nutrition and Health – The Association between Eating Behavior and Various Health Parameters: A Matched Sample Study

"Vegetarians were twice as likely to have allergies, a 50 percent increase in heart attacks and a 50 percent increase in incidences of cancer." ..... “suffer significantly more often from anxiety/depression.”

And even reproductive health Vegetarians have much lower sperm counts

"A diet rich in fruit and vegetables may harm fertility, say researchers at Loma Linda University Medical School "


Rodent studies

That progress comes from theory

Actually it is almost always the other-way-round; Theory is derived from practice.

Organic Food

While there is much hype about organic food, the reality seems a bit different. Normal crops are grown without pesticides until the pests appear - Once there the farmers use pesticides that have been tested for safety.

Organic foods are typically breeds that have good pest resistance - often by organic chemicals the plant constantly produces to kill or repel pests. These 'natural' substances have often been bred into the plant (well not really natural - but thought so by organics lovers). These substances have not been tested for safety. (Plants can and do make nasty poisons - hemlock - . )

Organic foods are also grown with out using fungicides - thus you will see them looking a bit worn and having bits of mold on them. Molds produce mycotoxins - also see Aflatoxins, ergots, Fumonisins, Ochratoxins, Trichothecenes, Zearalenone(a xenoestrogen that maybe effecting US boys). The tiny risks presented by fungicides prevent some rather big risks.

Anti-oxidants

There is not agreement on how to test if something actually IS an anti-oxidant in vivo. Many of what they call Anti-oxidants the body works very hard to get rid of - some are apparently toxic - they could be doing some good via hormones, but the quality of the science doesn't really tell us appropriate dosages (that would take huge amounts of money - like any drug). What is an anti-oxidant? Not the same as storage antioxidants - see ANTIOXIDANTS IN FOOD AND BIOLOGY: FACTS AND FICTION by Edwin N. Frankel..

Rights

People don't have a natural right to the fruits of others labor.

It is not a right if it is at someone else's expense. We now have people speaking of all sorts of newly found Human rights - but if they are at the expense of others it isn't true. It is also strange that we have human rights, but not human responsibilities (such as working). As a human, I do not have the right to force my neighbors to pay for my children's education, my mortgage, my health-care. Those are responsibilities.

The attempt here is a no different than racism - using force to take from one group to provide for another is nothing other than divisive politics - pitting one group against another to get their votes. Any group membership that provides special rights is no different than racism. Membership in such groups as unemployed, veteran, handicapped, buyer of green products etc. when it provides special rights/privileges is just a different grouping than skin color or ethnic background.
