And let's just say I have a very low tolerance for stupidity when I am tired, and very poor impulse control.
I get really tired of people treating me like an outlier. I have read more in my 30 years (yep, that's how tired I am, I just willingly gave up my age, only I didn't give it accurately) than probably 90% of people will read in their lifetimes. I research topics that interest me thoroughly before I pretend to know ANYTHING about them, because I do not like being proven wrong. But people who don't research anything, whose information relies solely on the opinions of doctors, drug companies, the FD freakin' A (because of course they have our best interests and long term health in mind, not their own bank accounts), and the status quo think I am crazy.
I must be crazy for not trusting high fructose corn syrup, artificial sweetener, or anything made in a lab.
I must be crazy for seeing the link between between heart disease and NOT fat and cholesterol, but adulteration of our food including but not limited to homogenization of milk, refining of grains and sugars, and the industrialization of farming.
I must be crazy for thinking refined sugar is poison.
And I must REALLY be crazy for thinking that grain is an unsuitable food for babies.
You know what? I'll just keep being crazy. Because I've come across studies that suggest if we continue eating the standard American diet we will be infertile in four generations (oh, did I forget to mention link between diet and fertility and the recent spike in fertility issues above? sorry...)
Survival of the fittest and all.
