202  Politics, Religion, Science, Culture and Humanities / Science, Culture, & Humanities / CD, FWIW I agree with GM on: April 22, 2017, 01:03:53 PM
https://www.theatlantic.com/health/archive/2013/07/the-vitamin-myth-why-we-think-we-need-supplements/277947/

Crafty,
most if not all the supplement sales carry a similar pattern of promotion.   You get someone with a science background who recites biochemical pathways that show a particular substance is involved in some sort of function that is needed for health.   From Vit C to B 12 to cofactor with magnesium and hundreds and probably thousands more

They impress the non scientist with "co factors" long chemical names and site studies that show some relationship to our health.   Then they may state taking large doses of the cofactor or other chemical increases the benefit to our health over just normal doses.  Or they will vary the presentation with claims that the nutrient or chemical has to be taken in a certain way with other substances and then, and lonly then we would all reap some increase benefit to our "prostate health, our cognitive health, our digestive healthy, more energy etc.

Then they find mostly obscure studies by usually second rate or no name researches who are spending grant money , trying to make some sort of name for themselves, or I even suspect are at times making up data for bribes  and then publish the date and their "research" in one of the money making journals that are usually second rate or are not well monitored or peer reviewed (even that process is subject to outright fraud).

So now they cite the impressive sounding biochemistry in order to sound like they understand something that the rest of us do not and they "discovered" this chemical (s) that is found by these usually insignificant if not fraudulent studies to suggest some sort of benefit.   

The chemicals are often obscure from some exotic jungle of far away ocean or island or with some claim of being the only ones who can provide in the proper purity or concentration or mix or other elixir that no one else can duplicate .

If any real scientist or doctor disputes their claim they come back with a vengeance arguing that the doctor or scientist is just threatened by this "cure" that would put the doctor or scientist out of business.

You don't have to take my word for it but the vast majority of these things , if not all , are scams.  They all have similar themes with variations that play over and over again to people who are looking to stay healthy, stay young, get an edge in life, have more sexual prowess ,  remember more , be smarte.

There si billions to be made. 

I hope I don't sound like some condescending doctor who thinks he knows it all.  I don't.  And I know I don't. 
But even on Shark Tank when some entreprenuer came on trying to get the sharks to buy into some sort of supplement they said all the supplements are just a "con".

FWIW I agree with it.

was incensed on how the LEFT and the class (less) action lawyers can get away with  destroying someone with allegations
He was not defending OReilly if he did harass women only that there is no due process.  He is already guilty in the court of public opinion and he will be forever tarnished over this. He also added most of what we have heard is so over blown.

Thanks GM

Nothing convincing to me the OBamster and all were not using this "Russian connection " thing as cover to spy on Trump et al.

"A lot more did come Thursday in a new report published by The Guardian. The report indicates that Napolitano was on the right track: GCHQ and other European spy agencies did pass on incidental electronic surveillance (SIGINT) to the Obama administration revealing "contacts between members of Donald Trump’s campaign team and Russian intelligence operatives." But according to the Guardian's anonymous sources, the intelligence was passed on to the United States "as part of a routine exchange of information" -- not at the behest of the Obama administration, as Napolitano had suggested."


"according to one of the Guardian's sources, the investigation is making progress:
They now have specific concrete and corroborative evidence of collusion. This is between people in the Trump campaign and agents of [Russian] influence relating to the use of hacked material."

Always a lot of unnamed "sources"
I still do not see any proof  of collusion between Russians and Trump people on wikileaks.
Just "corroborative evidence" ->

some Trump guy met with some Russian guy.......... The usual Leftist crap story line .

Didn't Clinton people meet with Russians.  
For God sake.  I have worked with Russian doctors.

"Republicans (conservatives?) just won the House, Senate and White House.  They should have cut tax rates, spending and the deficit on the first day, retroactive to the first of the year - by whatever amount that could be agreed on.

All these new ideas are so clever and complicated that they will never be understood and passed in time to do any good.  By the time they could get passed, Democrats will just raise them back up anyway.

R's act like Democrats, thinking this is some kind of permanent political majority - after winning by -2.5 million votes.

How about governing with some sense of urgency, like we believe what we said - that the left's policies, taxes and programs are destroying the country."

Yup.  They refuse to give up their power which is to spend our money and also afraid of being labelled the usual Democrat mantra 'tax cutters for the rich"
(even though 47 % pay NO federal income tax so who the hell are they to complain? and the top 20% pay the majority of all taxes)

The only 'valid' reason for *caution* is the Deficit but we know that is not the main reason they will not cut taxes.

Whatever we do get it will be watered down ,  not for those who really need it, those who pay nothing continue to do so, and in the end it will likely be shell game.
