    Clueless 'experts' - GAWD!

    Primal Blueprint Expert Certification
    Aren't people like these two supposed to be up to date on things related to their specialties? Head/desk/head/desk/head/desk ...

    Link's not working for me, possibly a good thing?

    This whole exploration into health science has taught me that just because a group are the official "experts" doesn't mean that they aren't dogmatic, lazy, corrupt, and unwilling to ever admit that they were wrong about anything ever. I would probably defer to a physics professor about atomic theory but I would never defer to an "expert" on a hypothesis.

    Sorry, I should have tested the link and sorry again, I don't know how to make it work.

    The subject of the piece is taking obese kids away from their parents on grounds of child abuse. The justification being, the state would remove them if they were being starved, why not the reverse. OK, I'm not sure how I feel about that, but then they launched into educating the parents about nutrition and it was 95% CW garbage.

    One of these guys was a heart, diabetes and weight-loss specialist, from Harvard fercrissakes, and the other guy was something to do with the ethics end. Brilliant men, no doubt, but on the subject of health & weight loss it was like dumb & dumber, thus the repeated head/desk.

    Consider the source on both videos. Fox News, Fair and Balanced.

    If the UK shit storm about News Corp makes it over the pond, Fox News might not even exist in a few months.

    Oh gosh, is that really their slogan? For fuck's sake.

    I also like how they ran an advertisement for a pharmacy before their video. Really subtle, guys.
