Comments on “Nutrition offers its resignation. And the reply”


Off the hook

Curt Kastens's picture

I have suspected as much for quite a while. Never really got bent out of shape by it though. Corrupt Generals and corrupt Bankers and stupid Economists can destroy nations and economies. Bad nutrition takes decades to kill someone. Horrible nurition can kill someone quickly but nutritionists are not called upon to solve droughts or tell us that we can avoid scurvey by having some lime in our tequilla. So it seems to me in the grand scheme of things nutritionists are relatively harmless.

Nutrition "Science"

Than you for this. The useless of nutrition “science” should be more widely known. It seems there must be a concerted effort to debunk the false and unjustified claims.

This page is in the section Rationalist ideologies as eternalism,
      which is in Non-theistic eternalism,
      which is in Eternalism: the fixation of meaning,
      which is in Meaning and meaninglessness,
      which is in Doing meaning better.

The next page in this section is Nutrition: the Emperor has no clothes.

The previous page is Perfection Salad.

General explanation: Meaningness is a hypertext book. Start with an appetizer, or the table of contents. Its “metablog” includes additional essays, not part the book.
