Listener Beware

The pressure of being an academician is to keep publishing "insightful" papers. 

The pressure of being labelled an intellectual is up keep coming up with intelligent hypotheses, observations , and conclusions. 

Finally, you reach a stage when you have nothing intelligent to say, but the eco system around you expects you to say intelligent things.

Which is when you start spouting intellectual nonsense. There is an entire ecosystem waiting to lap it up, amplify your sayings and disseminate your wisdom. They will of course do all that since their salaries depend on it. 

The only defence against this can be exercised at the consumer's end. You need to have a very strong bullshit detector and not waste time on pseudo intellectual stuff that adds no value to you. 

That caveat applies to all kinds of "experts" in all kinds of fields. 

Listener / Reader/ Consumer beware!

The spread of Diabetes, what is the reason? It all boils down to nutrition and lack of vital minerals in the body. 

Ah well. There are 1000 different ways that the body can get sick, and diabetes is just one of them. The medical industry focuses on the 1000 different ways in which you are sick since that is how they make their money. 

In your case, all you need to do is to focus on the one way which will keep you well, and ignore the 1000 sicknesses entirely. 

And what is that one way? 

Eat food. Yes food. Not processed mash made in factories where the manufacturing process strips out the minerals from the food. 

Eat food, yes food,  not from chain restaurants with a "supply chain", which could not care less about your nutrition, they care only about their profit. 

Eat food, yes food,  not from cloud kitchens, which are anonymous cost cutting mass producing factories.

Eat food, yes food,  made from good ingredients, not from "refined" oil, "manufactured" salt, "analogue" cheese substitutes or white sugar.

Eat food, yes food, which has not been doused in pesticides. 

Eat food, yes food,  which you can trace to the source. So that you know who grows it, and how. And you buy what grows. And cook it. At home. And eat it when it is still fresh. 

Yes, it is that simple. You want to be healthy? 

Eat food.
