The Food Police Suck More Fun Out Of Life, Again

G_D DAMN IT TO HELL.

I had a great post just about ready to publish and I managed to close the tab by accident. Lost the whole thing. I had a 3 paragraph social commentary, tie-ins to ObamaCare and Big Pharma, links to the Celiac Foundation and everything.

fuggit. It’s too late at night and I’m cranky. But I’ll try to regurgitate the gist of it. I probably needed the editing anyway.

so here’s the damn link to the original story

My whole point: You’ve probably noticed how every food product under the sun that isn’t made with flour now touts “Gluten Free” on it’s label, as if glutens were some new kind of poison worse than eggs, salt, Conservatives, or even those awful trans-fats. And now we’re being pushed to believe that everybody and his uncle, and probably their dog to boot, has celiac disease. 1 in 100, says the foundation. Absolute total horse shit, says the Drew. Someone has lowered the membership bar into a trench dug deeply in the ground, so that anyone with the occasional tummy ache can claim to be a victim of the disease, and being a victim is the thing these days.


BREAD CAUSES LUNG CANCER

Well not just bread, but any foods with a high glycemic index. Cakes, pies, rice and barley. Also sweet fruits and vegetables, including beets, carrots, apples, oranges, and dates. And let’s not forget starchy foods, they’re HGI too. Atkins Diet for everyone!!

White bread, bagels and rice ‘increase the risk of lung cancer by 49%’, experts warn

a new study revealed that carbohydrates may also be bad for your lungs. Consuming a diet with a high glycemic index increases the risk of lung cancer, scientists revealed.

Foods known to have a high glycemic index (GI) include white bread or bagels, corn flakes and puffed rice.

Lead study author Dr Stephanie Melkonian, of University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, said: ‘We observed a 49 per cent increased risk of lung cancer among subjects with the highest daily GI compared to those with the lowest daily GI.’

The findings suggest that cutting out foods with high glycemic index could reduce a person’s risk of developing lung cancer.  Lung cancer is the second most common cancer in both men and women across the US. Furthermore, it is also the leading cause of cancer mortality.

More than 150,000 people in the US are expected to die from lung cancer in 2016, according to an estimate from the American Cancer Society.

Meanwhile in the UK there are around 45,525 new cases of the disease diagnosed each year, while 35,371 people lose their life to the disease annually, according to Cancer Research UK.

And, while tobacco is the leading cause of lung cancer, it does not account for all cases - particularly for those who never smoked.

The study, published in the journal Cancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers & Prevention, is the largest ever to investigate the potential link between glycemic index and lung cancer.

It is also the first to show that GI was more significantly associated with lung cancer risk in specific subgroups - including people who had never smoked and those with the sub-type squamous cell carcinoma.

The glycemic index, or GI, measures how a carbohydrate-containing food raises blood glucose.

Foods are ranked based on how they compare to a reference food — either glucose or white bread.

A food with a high GI raises blood glucose more than a food with a medium or low GI.

Previous studies have found that dietary factors may have an influence on a person’s risk of developing lung cancer.

Diets high in fruits and vegetables were found to decrease the risk - while increased consumption of red meat, saturated fats and dairy products are known to increase the risk of the disease.

So. Can’t smoke, can’t drink. Don’t do drugs! Red meat is bad, sugar is bad, fat is bad, bread is bad. Eggs are OK this week, but are scheduled to be bad again soon. Anything with flour or white sugar is bad. Salt is bad. Sugary fruits are bad. What’s left? Here, chew on this disgusting bitter green shit a starving Mexican donkey wouldn’t eat called kale. And have a big scoop of this re-moistened tasteless puss called quinoa. The Fun Suckers are at it again.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
It's been a long strange trip without you Skipper, but thanks for pointing us in the right direction and giving us a swift kick in the behind to get us going. Keep lookin' down on us, will ya? Thanks.

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
