Show me the evidence!
I read this headline and thought it meant “SI will now show models in sporty swimsuits you could actually swim in.” Nevermind.
I don’t mean, like, “Hey you, subject of this study, it sucks that you personally are white.” 😂
Poor guy. I definitely stopped taking my dog places because of this. She was always getting cornered, and she’s a greyhound, so I can’t let her off-leash when we’re hiking a trail or something. She’s also too big to pick up.
Or in other words, thanks, I’m glad it’s helpful :)
A lot of these studies are reported accurately—and so far I’ve always been able to find articles clearly explaining the caveats, so I’m definitely not the only one bringing a critical eye.:
In 1994 everybody had their own recipe for a homemade eclipse viewer. We made them in school, too!
One of the days I’ll pick a story that you SHOULD worry about, and then what?
1. Anyplace else and my kids will knock it down and dance on its grave
I didn’t know this, thanks! They stopped using beef tallow in the fryers in 1990, but according to this, they currently use a beef flavoring and it is not vegetarian. https://www.eater.com/2015/9/29/9410199/natural-beef-flavor-vegetarian-what-is-it
Oatmeal is on the breakfast menu! And yeah, I’m not sure why fries didn’t make the list. Too obvious?
I stand corrected!
Holy shit. They actually call it Antibiotic.
But you have immunosuppressive drugs for your Crohn’s disease. What if you never got that far because people told you that your problems are caused by plant lectins and thyroid hormones, and you just need to take control of your own health and spend a lot of money on probiotics?
Doesn’t turning up at the ER often mean people don’t have a PCP, can’t afford a doctor visit, or don’t know how to navigate the medical system?
Yes yes yes. I started to write about goop’s take on feminism but decided to focus on just the health claims. Lindy West’s observations (especially the “I HAVE LOTS OF MONEY AND A STAFF” part) were absolutely spot on.
It smells amazing, too!
Totally fine—you’re basically giving yourself a massage.
Yeah, and I think those changes in science are what open the door for goop-style pseudoscience. They say everything doctors know is wrong, and you need to find a doc who’s up on the latest science. There are plenty of things this IS true about! But then, like I said, they stop you from asking the questions that let…
That’s a great question! What do you think is picking up the smell? Carpet? My first thought is to put down a mat or towel beneath you.
