Unfortunately, the vast majority of popular books on nutrition insist that humans can obtain vitamin A from fruits and vegetables. Even worse, FDA regulations allow food processors to label carotenes as vitamin A. The label for a can of tomatoes says that tomatoes contain vitamin A, even though the only source of true vitamin A in the tomatoes is the microscopic insect parts. The food industry, and the lowfat school of nutrition that the industry has spawned, benefit greatly from the fact that the public has only vague notions about vitamin A. In fact, most of the foods that provide large amounts of vitamin A—butter, egg yolks, liver, organ meats and shellfish—have been subject to intense demonization. ... It is very unwise, therefore, to depend on plant sources for vitamin A. This vital nutrient is needed for the growth and repair of body tissues; it helps protect mucous membranes of the mouth, nose, throat and lungs; it prompts the secretion of gastric juices necessary for proper digestion of protein; it helps to build strong bones and teeth and rich blood; it is essential for good eyesight; it aids in the production of RNA; and contributes to the health of the immune system. Vitamin-A deficiency in pregnant mothers results in offspring with eye defects, displaced kidneys, harelip, cleft palate and abnormalities of the heart and larger blood vessels. Vitamin A stores are rapidly depleted during exercise, fever and periods of stress. Even people who can efficiently convert carotenes to vitamin A cannot quickly and adequately replenish vitamin A stores from plant foods. - Weston A.

The press is abuzz over some stupid study that claims that eggs are as bad for you as smoking. This study is easily proven wrong but even more our whole approach to health care is wrong. First everything in life is bad for you. If you keep it in balance you will be fine. Cigarettes don't give you cancer. Being fat, out of shape, poisonous in your emotions and having nothing you really enjoy in life, and also smoking on top of that, gives you cancer. Even more genes play the biggest role. Who mostly gets cancer? Obese poor people from minority groups. They live in toxic parts of cities, eat cheap boxed food, are fat and out of shape, and smoke horrible cigarettes like Newports. Our society has wronged these people and it wants to blame all cigarettes for what's basically a coordinated but semi-inadvertent effort to kill off the impoverished. Nutrition is misunderstood, we should correct that. Here is some enlightening truth about eggs and vegetarianism:
It's a way of life in the right-wing community: informers and informants exist among us because many people want to stop us from being effective. Informants/informers generally come in two types:
- People compromised by government. They committed a crime, got caught, and got offered a deal. They escape prosecution (basically go on an extended probation conditional on their informant activities) and get $$$ in exchange for spying on their former comrades. Governments have done this for 100s of years.
- People who are crazy. Most of these are getting disability checks from the government and so can never actually participate in effective activism, because then they'd lose their free ride. These people just want to draw attention to themselves, and so they create drama, stir up trouble, and watch other people take the fall. This makes them feel important and satiates their desire for revenge on a world that has passed them by, because it's not on disability with nothing in life but a computer and a grudge.
- Asserts a true/false orthodoxy. They need you to classify yourself as an extremist, so they will offer up true/false type decisions and use them to polarize you. "Either the Jew runs our sandwich industry, or it doesn't. Are you pro-Jew or pro-liberation of sandwiches?" You are either with the radicals, or you're fake and they may even accuse you of being the informer.
- Pushes you to do more radical things. They use these true/false equations to divide the group into those who want to get more radical and those who want to be reasonable, and use this to portray the reasonable people as wimps, fakes, poseurs. This both enables them to get convictions and to make themselves look more "for real."
- Has no purpose and visible means of support. Normal people have goals in life and careers. Informants are getting paid by the government, or are insane people living on disability, and so they don't need these things.
- Encourages futile "action." Informants want you to expose yourself so you can be arrested with clear evidence of your guilt. That way everyone else nods and goes, "They got a bad one there." They like futile action like blowing up strategically inconsequential targets, beating up inconsequential people, and engaging in riotous, illegal and criminal behavior for the sake of staying true to a lifestyle. All of these make nice tidy convictions.
- Always draws attention to themselves, then vanishes. The classic informer behavior is to create an orthodoxy, radicalize the participants, then encourage "action" which is futile and then to vanish so that the police can make the bust.
- Sebastian Ernst Ronin. Revealed personal information about right-wing activists to an open group that he knew contained ANTIFA.
- Criostoir O'Domhnallain. Passed on personal information about right-wing activists to leftist groups.
- Maury Knutson. Repeatedly reposted personal information about right-wing activists to left-wing users and groups. Also has a blog at Maury2k.com.
- Jake Kelk. In response to this article, posted wrong information about the person he assumed was the writer, but believed it was correct at the time and, by posting it on a public profile of a leftist activist, clearly intended it to reach the wrong hands.
One of our writers goes off on the article farm that he's been writing for. Amusing in that it's true but pointless.
It's stuff like this, Examiner: Examiner CommunityThis is why I write for blogs, not for article banks or other communities. The independent press is the best because we're not for profit and thus we don't count heads, thus we don't care if we don't have 500,000 people every day who want to read about Twilight or Nadya "Octomom" Suleiman. We wish Examiner.com a speedy path to the pits of hell and failure where it belongs, along with all other for-profit "journalism" by "citizen journalists" who are basically unemployed drama queens with Oxycontin habits.
