If the intention is to kill us, they are doing a good job!
"I took one look at that in the paper yesterday and thought same as you.
Our world standards have dropped: we need to go back to 30/40yrs before all the processed "food" arrived. Why do they not promote how cheap, easy and fun it is to grow a small vegetable plot, especially in our summertime?"
The following article contains some of the worst nutrition advice you would ever expect from officially anointed experts. So for who are these nutritional experts working? Big Food? Big Sugar? Big Agriculture? Uber Eats? Oh, the Food and Grocery Council? Themselves? Whatever! In the end, it is the message that cries out for scrutiny.
Hey, Nikki and Helen, how about a public debate with me about nutrition?
Talk about setting the bar low!
Here we go:
"If you and your household have to go into sudden self-isolation, do you have what you need in the pantry to go the 14-day distance?
Even if you don’t fall sick, you’ll have to stay put for at least another 10 days after your family member or flatmate with Covid-19 gets released. So it’s worth giving a little thought to how and what you’ll eat now.
We asked nutritionists to draw up a household shopping list for 21 days of self-isolation, so you don’t have to rely on UberEats for every meal."
Read the rest of the article, including the links, then come back here.
Here it is:
They seem to be promoting a carbohydrate (sugar) soaked diet that is largely devoid of vitamins, minerals, and fresh, unprocessed fats and oils. If we stick to their list, there is no way that we will reach the daily optimum for nutrients other than sugar in abundance and excess.
Check this Emergency Food List if you haven't already.
Crikey: They recommend two kilos of sugar!
Sugar is the food of yeast, viral, bacterial and viral infections. Cancer cells love sugar. Excess sugar drives up unhealthy cholesterol profiles, drives diabetes and eventually becomes body fat. It rots the gums and teeth.
Where's the fresh fruit and vegetables? Indeed some can be stored in the veggie compartment of the fridge and restocked several days later? Where's the fresh unhomogenised silver top milk that is rich in healthy fats and all of the fat-soluble vitamins? It is possible to arrange deliveries of fresh produce, and people are not isolating in a Siberian Gulag. Well, not yet anyway.
Beautiful NZ butter is not there; instead, they recommend margarine which not even blowflies will touch (yes, I have experimented - the flies don't like it!).
Why can't a quarantined person spend as much time as they like outside, relaxing, exercising, getting sunshine and fresh air? After all, there is no convincing evidence, mask or no mask, by the way, that being outdoors, communing with Mother Nature represents a health risk to others. On the other hand, there is convincing evidence that being in confined and poorly ventilated spaces is a health risk, as is rebreathing contaminated air by wearing masks (face nappies).
So what more can we say? Actually, I am almost lost for words. Good on Stuff News, the propaganda arm of the Source of all Truth and congratulations to the Ministry of Health; they sure know their stuff!
