I've collected three examples below....an outdated idea promulgated by the state health department, weird nonsensical claims from an alternate reality, and new cutting-edge research from a man who steals aboriginal poop.
20-years out of date: 2% milk is making you fat! ...according to NM Department of Health and their new foodstamp guidelines. (Seems they missed the last 15-20 years of research showing that its actually a high-carbohydrate diet of processed foods that has led to the obesity epidemic, not the extra 1% milk fat in 2% milk!)
Alternate reality: Try pH 8.8 water! Straight from the Himalayas, with minerals added! (what minerals? Baking Soda? I can make water any pH I want by adding baking soda or vinegar....)
20-years in the future: Jeff Leach, co-founder of the American Gut Project, is definitely a good 10-20 years ahead of his time. In the tradition of those brave scientists who self-infected themselves with the cutworm parasite in try to cure allergies and autoimmune dieseases, Mr. Leach has given himself a fecal transplant from an aboriginal in Africa. What happens? Stay tuned!
