    A lifetime of watching crappy football adversely affects that male/female ratio. [#%^& Bears]

      Happy New Year, Chief and all Bears fans. Thanks for the total gift!

      • Chief Tomahawk says:

        Thanks, Hoosier. And same to you.

        Bears put up only 7 points in the 1st half against a Clay Matthews-less Packers defense. Ugh.

    …If a Jumbo Jet crashed and killed 280 people everyday… 365 days a year… year after year… would you be concerned about flying??

    Would you question the Federal Aviation Administration? Would you demand answers??

    Think about it!

    Close to 100,000 people dying every year from plane crashes?

    Sounds Ridiculous??!!

    Well think again. What if you were told that over 100,000 people are killed and over 2 million people maimed and disabled every year…year after year from modern medicine…would you believe it??

    Well these may be my words…but read the following articles from the most respected medical journals and institutions (Journal of the American Medical Association, Harvard University, Centers for Disease Control, British medical journal The Lancet, New England Journal of Medicine and national news (New York Times, Washington Post, CNN, US World Report) and you be the judge.

    Writing in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), Dr. Starfield has documented the tragedy of the traditional medical paradigm in the following statistics:…

    It’s a shame the men’s health graphic trots out the same old tired, discredited diet information of ‘low fat/high fiber/fruits and grains.’ Empirical research has show this ‘food pyramid’ to be dangerous nonsense, based on manipulated data from half a century ago. High intakes of fruit and fiber (read sugar and carbs) play a large part in the explosion of diabetes and obesity. Read Gary Taubes’ work, among others, on this issue.

    • I agree — HFCS is a disaster

      Low carbs / high protein is the way to go

      “High intakes of fruit and fiber (read sugar and carbs) play a large part in the explosion of diabetes and obesity.”

      That’s ridiculous. I know there is a never ending debate for and against carb intake, but, are you trying to tell us that the obesity and, consequently, the diabetes epidemics are due to so many eating too much fruit and whole grains?? C’mon.

      • HIGH FRUCTOSE CORN SYRUP.

        Thats the real American killer

      • BennyProfane says:

        Totally agree, along with high fat content (including most beef products), deep fried anything, super processed foods, and way too much alcohol, usually in the form of beer. But I have never heard anyone until now blame too much actual real fruit intake for health problems. And, I’m sorry, but, I have no fear of my whole grain cereals at breakfast and light pasta dinners at times. Everything in moderation.
