PostHeaderIcon Grain is bad for you?

Just found this on FB:

http://www.marksdailyapple.com/why-grains-are-unhealthy/

He must be right - look, he's got anecdotal evidence:

"From personal experience..."

Plus he talky good science:

"Toxic anti-nutrients"

My warning bells went off as soon as I realised that he's got super-secret information as yet undiscovered by the _entirety_ of mainstream science. For sale.

It looks like junk to me...

PostHeaderIcon An Open Letter to Eric Hovind and the CSE

From http://www.drdino.com/:

Creation Science Evangelism began in 1989 from a desire to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ through the science of God's creation. Today, Creation Science Evangelism has some of the most requested speakers on the topics of creation, evolution, and dinosaurs. With over three decades of research in the sciences, Creation Science Evangelism has become a trusted source for information pertaining to the creation vs. evolution controversy.

Dear Eric Hovind (and Creation Science Evangelism),

What research have you done?

Yours sincerely

Nathan Grange

PostHeaderIcon Oliver Twist is an acupuncturist...

I just watched the Oliver! DVD, and the special features include interviews with Oliver Twist and Fagin.

Apparently Mark Leister blew all his money when he turned 18 and is now an osteopath and an acupuncturist...

PostHeaderIcon 40 years ahead of it's time.

I was reading through an engineering e-mail mag on monday and stumbles across a new building in France that is 40 years ahead of it's time. Why, it had solar, and a few other alternative energy sources to produce all it's own energy.

Now i'm no genius but haven't we had solar panels around since the early 70's? So how is using something that we have presently, and have had for nearly 40 years, 40 years ahead of it's time?

PostHeaderIcon A Storm is Brewing

PostHeaderIcon 1023 - Homeopathy: There's nothing in it

There's a new grassroots campaign starting up in the UK.

http://www.1023.org.uk/

From the site:

"
The 10:23 campaign aims to raise awareness of the reality of homeopathy. We will tell you how it can be proven not to work, why homeopath's claims are impossible, and give patients the right information to allow them to make an informed decision on their healthcare.
"

They're starting with an open letter to Boots pharmacy...

Have a look and sign up.

Maybe we need to do something similar for NZ pharmacists?
