Hank Pym,I don't know if my first post to you will get
published. I refuted your stubbornness and feeling of being nagged just by the
existence of other opinions. But for now I have a better point to bring up.If you are correct, then no one ought to ever publish what is
'right' ever again. Because obviously everyone will fair better
without any amount of instruction whatsoever. Or is one instruction all it
takes? Perhaps for you, but does that mean everyone else is the same?Again, heaven forbid that the New England Journal of Medicine publish
something that you don't want to hear. Absurd! How dare they!?
Hank Pym,Other people expressing their opinion is not
"projecting their needs" onto you.My saying that "all
people need reminding" is a fact of life that is self-evident. But I suppose
you are perfect and never need anyone's help to improve. I didn't say
that I needed this article, but that someone may feel that it is useful- which
justifies it's publication. If you can't handle that, go be a hermit
and quit bothering the rest of us human beings that are willing to be civil and
decent to each other.But clearly I must be wrong! The New England
Journal of Medicine surely MUST be nagging and trying to molly-coddle everyone.
Everyone, run for your lives! Not molly-coddling! In all seriousness, your reply
is as illogical as it is immature. If you feel nagged by other people's
opinions you ought not read them or provoke any discourse with them.One could argue that this article could potentially save someone's life.
But I guess your not feeling pestered is far more important than others trying
to help the world. Friendly advice: grow up and quit whining. :)
re A voice of Reason"...Consistent repetition is just as
essential in order to exercise the mind until it has the strength to overcome
habit, or learned behavior....But personally I need constant reminder of it.
Without such reminders, I am more inclined to do what is wrong. I believe
everyone else faces that very same challenge."Finding your
trigger for making bad decisions & correcting them will lead to better
behavior.The more I'm badgered to do thing A rather than thing
B; you can be sure I'll do thing B just because I can.If you
need to be nagged & molly-coddled into doing the right thing fine. But,
don't project your needs onto the rest of us.
NedGrimley,Believe it or not, there are indeed a great deal of
people who believe that such drinks have little to do with health. Deep down, do
we all know better? Yes. But as true as that is- it is even more evident that
people need further reminding of the truth.Water is essential for us
to live. Consistent repetition is just as essential in order to exercise the
mind until it has the strength to overcome habit, or learned behavior. I'd
spend 1 Billion more if it influenced more people to choose more wisely. Do I
think such beverages are at the top of our list of priorities? Not really. But
is putting effort into 'what is right' a bad thing? Not really.I would agree with you if you argued that there are more important
things to talk about. But whether it is necessary to retell the truth is
something I think you may have overlooked here. I know what is right and wrong.
But personally I need constant reminder of it. Without such reminders, I am more
inclined to do what is wrong. I believe everyone else faces that very same
What? Another high profile study linking sugar to obesity? Very impressive!
Maybe someone else should see if suger has an effect on obesity. Maybe the
government can chip in a couple of million to find out if there is a connection.
The food was changed in the USA, UK and Australia 30 years ago when dangerous
food chemicals from the USA was allowed into Europe. The food today causes
stubborn insulin If you have stubborn insulin you hold fat and have a hard time
losing weight. You can eat very little and the weight still does not come off.
Stubborn insulin will hold fat and diets won’t work. When researchers used
a specialized diabetes diet on overweight people all lost weight even those who
did not have diabetes.just google SPIRIT HAPPY DIET
