She does NOT represent a true Paleo lifestyle, she isn’t even a huntress, as she said in one of her many posts that have been deleted in the last couple days. She is simply a bored mother of 3 boys living in Worchester MA (check the ISP) and she tends to create aliases who she can talk to online when real people have had enough of her bullying and disingenuous antics. She has been accused of this many times, but it was clearly proven once, in a thread that is now magically disappeared. If you are interested in nutrition or a lifestyle change, please go to a real source, but Laurie here… is not one.

more your can reduce or even prevent damage. Part of the
confusion about superfoods comes from the fact that they are often backed up
by some legitimate scientific research; however, the conclusions may
be blown way out of proportion, becoming dubious
claims eagerly accepted as fact. Not much research has been done to prove that this is
the case though.

This isn’t about this post in particular (though I thoroughly enjoyed it and found it enlightening), but about doing this blog in general. I’ve been vegan for about a year and it’s important to me to not take in bogus arguments for it and pseudo-scientific information, when sometimes I don’t have the time or inclination to thoroughly research every claim.

As much as I try to be a critical thinker, sometimes, like most people probably, I can be a bit credulous, because, for example, it doesn’t occur to me in most cases that people would make claims with apparent certainty that they weren’t really certain about, at least not deservedly so, because, I don’t know, that’s not allowed, or something, or they’d get caught, or people wouldn’t really lie… all things I know aren’t true.

Do you have a post on the claim I’ve heard that milk is actually not a good source of usable calcium because of something to do with acidity and stripping nutrients from your bones? I did a bit of research on that a while ago but didn’t find the sorts of conclusive evidence that would be required to advance that argument so confidently. Any good links on that?

Also, the garden diet website is more like an infomercial than a blog. I dunno if I’d trust anything those scammers said after stealing nearly a million dollars from their followers.

It’s great that you find success in the raw food diet but that is purely subjective. I myself was a rawfoodist and felt similarly but I recently learned about critical thinking and how easy it is to fool ourselves. The benefits of the raw food diet (like most fad diets) are very easy to misinterpret.

When you lash out like this attacking the author it makes it seem like you have no valid argument for raw food. What specifically in this article do you find wrong?

I’m not gong to be polite. I’m tired of people knocking the raw food diet. My boyfriend and I have been raw for seven years. We do go to medical doctors to get regularly “checked”, are test results show that we are extremely healthy human beings. I have not been sick in seven years, enough said.

He commands his readers to drink Ionized water only. “Steamed vegetables are not at all acceptable,” he snaps. “Switch to a raw food diet and disease will disappear from your life for good, or for as long as you remain a raw foodist,” he also proclaims. Sadly, this ridiculousness is the last essay, and thus McCauley gets the last word on the subject. I am reminded of vegan RD Ginny Messina’s quote on the wonderful Skeptical Vegan website: […]

You have really emphasized the good points of adapting this healthy lifestyle. Well done! :)
