    • Hi,
      This is such an amusing thread, and it's taken so very long to get through, but it's been a fun, giggle/cringe journey. Somewhere along the line someone mentioned the idea of having a T-shirt that read "Body by Bacon" I thought that was fantastic, as like most of you I'm a little obsessed with the bacon after turning primal... so I googled it, and indeed they make them.... but it's marketed in another classic CW missconception.. (I'll most likely get one anyway... I wonder how much you have to pay for XS?)

        The doctor was implying that the only way my friend could get it was through eating red meat from cows. IF that's true, then how did the cow get it? Get it?

        But eating foods containing certain compounds can also have deleterious effects - take kidney stones and oxalates, for example. Spinach, kale, et al. are all high in oxalic acid, which can lead to kidney stones; it's not the body manufacturing oxalic acid from these foods, it's the oxalic acid content of the food itself. Thus, your logic still made no sense, as it is perfectly plausible that eating foods high in uric acid might contribute to gout.

          Ha!! That cracks me up that you have to pay extra for regular-sized shirts. I guess its them trying to get revenge for having to pay extra for multiple-X shirts

            Try sending him this article which directly attributes soda as a producer of uric acid for gout:
            Sugar-sweetened soft drinks, diet soft drinks, and serum uric acid level: The third national health and nutrition examination survey - Choi - 2007 - Arthritis Care & Research - Wiley Online Library

            To sum up...
            "Choi's research has shown that study participants who consumed two or more servings of sugar- or fructose-sweetened soda each day had an 85 percent increased risk of developing gout, compared with participants who consumed less than one serving of sugary soda per month. Even sugary fruit juice, such as orange juice, raises the risk. "

            • I understand your point.

              I just don't think you're getting what I was saying and why it was funny. Oh well.

              • No, I understand what you were saying. It wasn't funny and didn't make any sense.

                  • I was at REI yesterday picking out a pair of Merrel Trail gloves for my 6 year old son because his school will not allow him to wear his Vibram Five Fingers due to dresscode. I mentioned that to the lady and here is an approximation of the conversation that followed.

                    Her: "I have to agree with the school a little bit."
                    Me: "Huh?! Why?"
                    Her: "Well, kids aren't very observant or cautious of other people so he could really get hurt if someone steps on his toes."
                    Me: "Huh???!!!!"
                    Her: "And what if he hurts himself runing around and jumping in them? You don't know what sort of surfaces he's playing on at school."
                    Her: "I got my 15 year old son a pair of Vibram's and I told him he couldn't run, jump, or climb in them and he asked what he COULD do in them."
                    Her: "He needs to slowly work up to them, but he never wears them."
                    Me: "Well if he's not sprinting or distance running in them, and he spends some good time barefoot which most people do around the house these days, it shouldn't be a problem."
                    Her: "Well I really think that it's important for... " INTERRUPTION
                    My Wife: "O.k. let's go!"

                    My wife and I drove home talking about how the gal obviosuly didn't get it. Feet are designed to work, regular shoes don't offer much more protection against getting stepped on (most first graders aren't wearing steel toes), and she scared her son into never wearing the shoes that she spent a decent amount of money on. I just don't get it! Meanwhile she didn't seem to have any concern over the fact that despite a little extra insole cushion and a closed toebox, the Trail gloves are the same as the Vibrams.

                    • I will say that I do stub my toes a lot more with the VFFs while hiking (or, worst, is when I "stub" the ball of my foot while passing it too low over a rock. That hurts far more for some reason). But then this is probably because my body didnt grow up learning to be careful about where I step. Which, hopefully, your son's body will.

                          • Nuggets from a conversation with my yoga instructor today about diet:

                            "You should eat a variety of foods. It's not good to cut out any food group... except for meat of course. I haven't eaten meat in a year."

                            "You shouldn't eat eggs for breakfast everyday. Try oatmeal. It's very filling and will help you lose weight. In fact, I eat oatmeal (and I'm thin!) My whole family eats oatmeal (and we're all thin!)"

                            "It's not good to completely stop eating grains because once you start eating them again you will gain weight."
                            (Well, yeah, that's the idea...)

                            Her: "Brown rice is very very good for you and will help you lose weight."
                            Me: "I eat yams a few times a week (so as not to be constantly VLC)."
                            Her: "That's not good, yams have too much sugar."
                            Me: "But doesn't brown rice also have sugar?"
                            Her: "But brown rice has lots of nutrition and it will give you energy."
                            (Here I'm thinking to myself that even if that's true, which I doubt it is, yams are so much tastier.)

                            Later I looked up some nutrition facts:
                            1 cup of yams (boiled or baked without salt)
                            158 calories
                            0g fat, 2g protein, 37g carbs (5g fiber, 1g sugar)
                            glycemic load of 16
                            nutrient balance score of 43 (nutrition data)

                            1 cup of brown rice, long-grain, cooked
                            216 calories
                            2g fat, 5g protein, 45g carbs (4g fiber, 1g sugar)
                            glycemic load of 22
                            nutrient balance score of 33

                            Nutrition Data also ranks yams as 1/2 star better than brown rice for weight loss (I'll admit this is a kind of weird scale, but lots of people do use nutrition data), and a whole star better than brown rice for optimum health.



                            The worst part of CW is that people think that, of two choices, the one that tastes worse must be the 'healthier' option.

                              Not to mention the phytic acid in brown rice that gives lots of people a ton of horrible sideeffects!

                                The other thing that's interesting is that white rice is a better choice because it is missing the outer layer that contains the toxins.
