Health Food

When I shop at a health food store, I expect to buy healthy food.  Back in the day, a health food store did not have coffee.  Certainly not chocolate.  It was about pure food that was fresh.

Today we are busy, busy, busy.  We need to cut some corners with cooking.  Believe me, I get it. 

But do we have to sacrifice our health?  I want to start a write in campaign to “health food companies” and ask them to use ingredients that don’t cause many of the illnesses we have today, like macular degeneration.

Many illnesses have increased at the same rate that vegetable oils have increased in our diet.  Vegetable oils are not our friend.  So why are all the processed health foods processed in vegetable oils?   Almost all of them have safflower oil or sunflower oil.  It might be organic, but it is a vegetable oil.

To avoid them, we need to eat unprocessed foods.  Or they need to change their oil. Let’s start a write-in campaign and ask them to change their oils. They do not need to use vegetable oils that cause us illness.

The Scientific Method

Science is interesting, isn’t it?  Recently I’ve heard people say, “I believe in science.”  Don’t we all?  But honestly, we don’t have to “believe” in science because it can be proven.  That is the scientific method.  

Through the scientific method, we can determine if something works or does not work as presented, that is, if the scientific method is allowed to complete its research.  And that is why it is so important to support our good scientists and make certain they can rely on science and not have to support a narrative.

The scientific method is skeptical.  Someone says, “this will work.”  For instance, when the doctors wanted to use ivermectin or any other drug, the scientists would then set to prove that they are wrong.  That is the skepticism of science.  Let’s see if we can prove them wrong!

And the scientist do their research and find that they can or cannot prove that the person is right.  It is continued until there is enough research to determine they are right or they are wrong.  It is a beautiful system! There is much discussion back and forth. All ideas are welcome and must be considered because EVERYTHING can be ruled in or out with your work out in the public where other scientists can view it and comment.

Because we know numbers can be fudged and that is why other scientists go through their work, trying to poke holes in it or re-do the research to see if they confirm the original conclusion or find a different conclusion.

That is the scientific method in its simplest form.  If this has not been done and reported in such a way that we, and other scientists, can read it and re-do the experiment, it is NOT the scientific method. It is awesome when all scientist come to the table to find the best outcome.
