Every week my browser fills up with tabs of stories I want to talk about. I never get to them all so this is everything I think is interesting in the Low Carb/Keto/Healthy Diet field from this week.
The Keto Crotch Deception – Surely you heard all the hubbub surrounding Keto Crotch this week. You might be surprised to learn that it is an example of targeted native advertising disguised as a grassroots story covering the dangerous ketogenic diet. If you read one story on this page, you need to read this one.
Weight Watchers is Getting Crushed by Keto – I wonder where the money for this massive campaign came from? Maybe from the Oprah backed Weight Watchers? Perhaps the people are tired of something that is expensive and doesn’t work.
Drug Maker to Sell Cheaper Insulin – Finally someone is going to start putting out a generic insulin that is identical to the name brand stuff at half the price. While this is a step in the right direction, insulin is still way too expensive. It is my belief that insulin should be reserved for Type 1 Diabetics only with Type 2s being put on dietary and lifestyle interventions to remove the need for insulin. I think a dramatic fall in the demand of insulin should also result in a drop in price.
One More Time, With Big Data: Measles Vaccine Doesn’t Cause Autism – A fantastic look at 60,000 vaccinated children over a 10 year timespan. There is just no statistical difference between the rates of autism in vaccinated and unvaccinated children. None. Whatever is causing autism, it isn’t vaccination.
Fiber and Colon Health On A Well-Formulated Ketogenic Diet: New Insights Question Its Role As An Unconditional Requirement – Fiber isn’t important! This is another one of those truths that is slowly being backed up by the evidence.
