Re: The food we were designed to eat- Dr. McDougall-very low fat diet( page 8)

Bottom of graduating class? Why, Doctor, of course. Perhaps we’re blessed with The Mayo after all. Everyone of Drs are well versed and quite brilliant. Even the dummies have far more education and skills than any internet’s expert. But I guess I’m just dummer than average for having more trust in th...

Re: The food we were designed to eat- Dr. McDougall-very low fat diet( page 8)

Congrats on your results so far. Yes, i also have a big problem with doctors in general.. What do you call the bottom of the graduating class? That said, a Dr doing due diligence on diet has far more education, time re viewing peer reviewed stdies than you and I will parse in several decades. Caref...

I don't have seizures and that is what John Hopkins studied. Again, where are the peer reviewed studies linking this diet to the general public and in the long term? Look, I'm not asking to be pissy or argue. I just always distrust claims of studies and results that are still inconclusive. Reading t...

There are. many youtube videos showing how to disassemble.

I think you missed the fact that this study was done for decades over generations of cats. Since you've owned plenty of cats, you'd know that many of them go hunting on their own time to supply the nutrients they need. The cats i owned that willingly went outdoors to do their cat business were vast...

Re: I did it - I launched my Bafang Ultra based ebike! Also selling Bafang Ultra spares !

Hah! For a Bafang product...that not even the claimed largest USA distributor can keep parts in stock for... It’d be swell if all Bafang dealers brought some pressure to bear. Sadly as long as we act like the Chinese businesses we deal with, Bafang remains an irresponsibly difficult source. Sad that...
