An Addendum to Paul’s Metabosyn Review…

I’ve been pretty busy lately, so I haven’t kept up with the newest material on the main domain. But I had some extra time today, so I thought I’d take a look. There’s some good stuff there (kudos to Paul and Sumi!). I was especially amused by Paul’s Metabosyn review. The review itself wasn’t funny, but whenever I see the address, 3165 Millrock Dr. Ste 500, SLC Utah, my eyes start to spontaneously...

Too Funny…

While sipping my a.m. coffee, I stumbled on over an article from The League of Ordinary Gentlemen, about a blogger who thinks he’s invented the perfect alternative to food. Yes… you read that right. An alternative to food. SRSLY. The author of the “League” article, Russell Saunders, is a pediatrician, so he knows a thing or two about human physiology, nutritional needs, blood tests and… medical food...

They Don’t Warn ‘Loud” Enough, Methinks…

Toxins… not “Toxins”

Vibrational HCG… Really?!

Over the weekend, I surfed over to Science-Based Medicine, and scanned this post by pharmacist Scott Gavura about HCG and weight loss. It’s a well-written article, although if you’ve seen what Paul and I have had to say on the topic, in general, you won’t see much that’s new. There was one thing in his article, however, that took me by surprise. It was inserted into a paragraph about the FDA crackdown on...

Boiron Settles Lawsuit for $5 Million

This video has been making the rounds… I really don’t have the heart to make fun of these folks. But seriously: so many random patterns occur in nature, it’s not the least bit surprising that some of them make “sense” to human minds. The phenomenon is so common its been given a name: pareidolia. Personally, I’ve seen tons of “faces” and familar shapes in cottage cheese ceilings, ripple...
