the angry chef, A Warner

Yep we all be muppets

isbn: 97817866072160 is about food fads like the people who only eat steamed fish* to avoid getting cancer and who then get cancer.

So this is book that delves into the dubious area of food ‘science’ which has huge number of loonies and hollywood stars (my blog) who somehow get attracted to living on air or smelling there poo (my blog).  It is not particularly well written compared with Goldacre (my blog) but since its dealing with people making money rather than advancing science i suppose it will do.

The blog is written in the same style.  It is not completely useless as i got the low down as to why people think white bread is bad its a mentally retarded view..

Matthias Rath – who causes the death of 300,000 south africans a year from hiv aids.

The sugar chapter is also interesting.

Newpaper reporting gets it in the neck too.

The chapters on cancer (my blog) and autism (my blog) are the usual quacks offering hope to retards which is sad but that’s people like Rach  and ilk for you

3/5 bananas

*even in restaurants when it is not on the menu – such people do exist..

The second stomach

Professor (my blog) had a ‘quick’ surgery to remove something in a leg and ‘quick” sort of became over an hour to remove said object professors other half tells us. He is not eating after a week which makes us wonder if a second stomach is located in the leg.

I know such a thing does not exist but it does make you wonder

Anyhow if professor sees this get well soon.

 

Stupid black men (a homage to film maker Michael Moore)

I like you may have reading (not here) that the world health organisation or ‘who’ appointed dictator for life in Zimbabwe as ambassador for health.  El presidenre has to go elsewhere for his health services and has a life span three times that of the average zimbabwean.

.zw – Its a weird place (my blog) and i read while it might have a medical system in name but apparently getting paid and medicine are in short supply – no wonder Mugabe does not use it.

This decision was made by Dr Tedros who is the first african to run who, it appears he is sexist as mrs Mugabe should also be the ambassador how dare he not make her a health ambassador as well after all her talents are well noted as a lady torturer (my blog).

If having a health service in name only is deemed exceptional then clearly there is not much difference between the stupid white men who believe in private health care and the black ones**.

Perhaps its something Mr Moore can explain as to why private health is better – you know the one.

Mind you it is like Saudi Arabia having a conference on womens rights, and being chair of human rights at the un, and yes those two things actually happened.

At least mr and mrs mugabe can afford* private health care and that’s got to be progress right ?

*probably paid by China (my blog) ** mr moore is a left wing film maker in america

 

 

What I talk about when i talk about running,Haruki Murakami

Druggie Liliya Shobukhova

isbn: 9780995266155 dates from 2007 and is non fiction from an author i like (my blog) any delay in reading this might have been as I walked to a library.*

mr s from kes a class example of the role model for pe teachers

It is a small book and while ignoring drug cheats it does point out the failings of physical education in schools – most of of which is useless.

If you like Murakami’s non fiction it complements that and while perhaps not the most interesting subject reveals something of the author.

3/5 bananas.

Cancer charity scams

Meet Wendy Watson MBE (not here) of National Hereditary Breast Cancer Helpline

Since 2012, the charity’s accounts also show that as little as 2.8% of annual donations has been spent on “charitable activities”, such as running the helpline

No wonder there is no cure for any cancer, its a nice little owner for Wendy Watson and ilk for the pink trademark as well, after all if you cure something you dont need scam artists like Watson MBE.

Think about it.

‘healthy’ food

Milliband s come with rent boys - On your side ?

one of the five/ten a day


Food is supposed to be healthy right ? Professor told us an strange story about his lady mate who eats healthy (my blog) but still has an in balance of chemicals resulting in a condition for a doctor to diagnose.

Siince we know there are a lot of crooks in ‘vitamins‘ (my blog) perhaps too there is also a lot of bad science in food consumption* recommendations.

Apparently i now need to ten bananas a day but such is advice from people with an agenda lets all say it is best to avoid these fraudsters.

*fish.brown bread too

the life project,Helen Pearson

hokeyisbn: 9781848146282 was an economist pick about cohort studies and how people live.  It is a bit buzzwordy and a gentle introduction but the data from 1946 has become more accessible and relevant with modern stuff like computers.

Politicians are as usual unwise and foolish to this stuff and it appears many problems continue and neither red nor blue party really cares for them or takes advice from them unless its part of there party line.

You may know of these large studies by headlines like fat children,divorce and the family in newspapers.and such like

Not all studies work and there is a lot failure  in practice before these things work which is something america discovered.  Oddly a question like how much change from £2 will you get from a item costing 0.64p can tell you a lot about a group of people.

Something worth celebrating as an idea even if politicians see what they want to (failing) and the msm finding a negatives for headlines.

5/5 bananas.

cancer charities and failure

olivecookeCancer is a rich persons disease.  it is also a nice jolly for rich people (my blog) and politicians to administer charities who get money for something but do not solve cancer since that would make them out of a ‘job’.

On the radio is a cancer victim, who is explaining the limitations of cancer ‘solution providers such as the charities who it appears dont do a great deal and a victim with cancer still pays for treatment.  I suppose that’s patents and stuff none of this being open source.

I could go on and link science journals to this malaise but i am sure your well aware of open access to research you fund.

Anyhow – It’s got to a point where even Microsoft think they can fix cancer*.  So much for charities.

pinkcakeWhen i see cancer charities i see a nice job for a spouse of a politician or star, or a person who trademarked pink for the $ but not a cure.

While it can be a good cause i do wonder if the means to the end is a money making first for as long as they can via fees and income from patents.   It is kind of bonkers crazy when no cure is better for some – think on it.

*Microsoft cancer – has a level of truth even now.

10 day unknown maladies

hellotmobileThe lady in the zoo on the phone (my blog) was back this time explaining to all including the monkey house her recent stint with the doctors and second opinions now with an eye patch which i think is not a fashion statement.

At least we and gchq and its friends in the five eyes all know why it took five days to discover the reason, or not.

I bet she will be back to bore us all with a confirmation of the problem at a latter date- i bet gchq and the nsa will be delighted to know that too.
