I can't believe they could print this stuff with a straight face.
If they suggested some vitamins don't work or some are less effective than prescription drugs that would have given them some credibility.
Making these outrageous claims is asking people to doubt their own five senses and instead believe in whatever they invent out of thin air.
The difference between this garbage and Pravda during the heyday of the Soviet Union is that the average Russian knew perfectly well that Pravda was State-sponsored propaganda. This rubbish is printed as though it were something to be taken seriously.
It is as if the newspaper ran a huge "expose" that debunked the notion of grass being green. People can look in their front yard and see that grass is green but the newspaper printing that it is an often repeated urban myth and experts and scienmagists have discovered that grass is actually orange. You would have to decide between what you are reading and what you can see out your front window.
It was funny reading this study last week in tandem with the announcement of the total ban on sunlight machines coming in 2015 here in Victoria. You won't be able to buy ten minutes of sunlight in Victoria in a solarium in a year because these genetic misfires have decided that they know better than I do what is best for me. I cannot even begin to tell you how good two sessions a week in a solarium is for me. My muscles get bigger, my eyes are clearer, my skin glows and my sleep cycles are almost normal. In addition I start to feel cheerful and optimistic instead of like the living dead. Solariums are the only thing standing between most people and depression year round. The government. Some people know what the government is.
If government officials were really serious about making the world a better place, they could start by running mass suicide rallies for all government employees around the clock with gigantic tubs of cyanide-laced grape koolaid. In six months we'd all be living in the earthly paradise with rainbow stew served on every corner and a guy flying around in a helicopter chucking out gold bullion and free butter. The government. This is a damn fine planet to live on and it might even be a decent place to live ... if the government went over a cliff in a bus into the sea, god forbid. Who'd miss'em? I reckon we'd work it out. They are not special pets. All mankind probably has some better purpose possible to their lives ... except for the sorts that are attracted to government.
When I was in the Army, the U.S. War College determined that the people most likely to be attracted to positions of authority were the most inferior human beings in every single metric they could apply. They were working on a policy under Reagan of avoiding recruiting people for officer school who were strongly motivated to apply despite having insufficient aptitude for the job. Obviously, they went the other direction and today the whole military is staffed with the usual suspects. They're not the best and the brightest. They're the worst and the least. For those who fail at nearly everything, there is still the option of getting government work or running for politics. People like this fancy themselves great architects of human happiness.They don't even know what they don't know and they don't know that they never do know that they don't know.
