Internet has been down for a while. ISP must have ‘upgraded’ something again. I hope I can get this posted tonight. Oho, I did, just in time!
There is a man who looks in good health, and who ignores all healthist propaganda. There are likely to be many more out there, keeping quiet in case the health Stasi spot them.
He takes it to the extreme – he has eaten no fruit or vegetables at all for ten years. Now, I do like some veg with a roast and have been known to eat quite a bit of fruit. I even grow some myself. So while I don’t count to see if I’m matching the pretend science of five-a-day, and while I do count chips, onion rings and chocolate as vegetables, I don’t exclude them from my diet. Neither did the man in the article until ten years ago. So what changed?
Mr Jeffries, who has been married to wife Dawn for 42 years, admits his tastes became fussier after he suffered two heart attacks 10 years ago.
I have heard of people waking from traumatic events and finding their personality has changed. Sometimes they develop the accent of another country – and there was someone once who woke up only able to speak and understand Welsh! So it’s possible that the trauma of his heart attacks changed his taste in food.
So what does The Expert have to say?
Nigel Penny, Lecturer in Applied Human Physiology at Birmingham City University’s Faculty of Health said: ‘I would definitely not recommend anyone pursue a diet like David’s.
‘I think the facts speak for themselves. The fact he had two heart attacks 10 years ago is largely due to following such a diet, rather than a hereditary predisposition.
‘Although, he could have been genetically predisposed to an increased risk of coronary artery disease, had he not followed such a diet he may well have not had heart disease or heart attacks in his mid 50s.’
The expert says that the diet he has followed in the ten years AFTER his heart attacks was the cause of his heart attacks. Not only has the expert had no involvement in Mr Jeffries’ medical history, he also declares that the effect of diet is retrospective. If you have a heart attack now it’s because you will have a lousy diet in the future.
Just wait until the medicoloons latch on to that one. Everything can be smoking or diet related – you might not smoke now, but if you have cancer then you must be destined to smoke in the future. Therefore they can deny you treatment.
That is the calibre of medical scientist we have in the UK now. Total bloody moron. He is teaching students, you realise? He is producing a whole new generation of unthinking idiots who will be in charge of telling your children what to eat and how to live. They will look at your current diet, look at your ten-years-ago illness, and instantly link the two. Even if you gave up fruit last week.
The drones in the comments have not noticed this. They didn’t get past ‘he smokes…’ before declaring that he must be ill, he just thinks he’s fit. Also that he must have terrible breath and stink of smoke all the time. It comes out through the screen, that second hand smoke.
Since the Mail insists on showing the large mole on the man’s forearm in every photo, the drones have decided that it is smoking-related skin cancer. Does anyone believe he hasn’t had that lump checked? Does anyone believe that his doctor hasn’t made sure it’s nothing more than just a big mole?
And yet, how can we blame the idiot drones for making connections based on spurious prejudices?
Birmingham University’s Faculty of Health has lecturers that do the same thing. Teaching future medics to do the same thing too.
Guess who’s paying for it all?
