    There are that many now! I started to read it, reached page 5 or 6, started to watch some video where a medical doctor conflated Copernicus with Galileo right at the beginning and got discouraged. But I am trying to remember to add some kombu to soups.

      That thread just got locked, FWIW.

        Oh thank GOD for that. Hope they don't start a new one. They should take their craziness, nutjob conspiracies and ridiculous 'protocols' over to yahoo and stay there.

            Hahahha! Best comment. As a former chemist who worked in the molecular biology field, it is actually entertaining to read some of these threads when they go awry. I might have a degree in chemistry but I didn't get training in nutrition. I do think many people mean well in trying to post journal articles on nutrition and health, but when people get militant and argumentative, I generally don't even take their journal references seriously.

              The annoying thing is that I suspect the crazies actually did jump ship just before the thread got locked, making the locking unnecessary... *sigh*

              Argue not with idiots, lest they drag you down to their level and beat you with experience.

                Yes but it quickly became Grizz's iodine monarchy where all were not permitted to raise questions about the safety of extreme iodine supplementation without being shouted at in caps and called a troll. Were the crazies for some reason drawn to iodine, or did the iodine turn them crazy? We may never know.

                  Here's an example.

                  I heard Robb Wolf say, in the middle of a sprawling formless monologue, on his latest podcast that weight-gain is caused by salting your food -- apparently, on the grounds that Stephan Guynet said so, and that he once knew a fat guy who ate a lot of salted peanuts. Even the co-host seemed taken aback.

                  And yet Robb is often fairly sensible.

                  Maybe I need to thin out my iTunes subscriptions again ...

                  Anyone else got any recent craziness from the movement?
                  Huh? Are you joking? He's crazy for suggesting making food taste better is going to make people eat it more?

                  This is so dumb.
