I clicked the link to the study and got a 404. I went to the CRIIGEN
site. That study isn't in their files of studies.
A few years ago, a couple of reputable scientists fed beagles various
doses of borax for three months. The highest was equivalent to my
eating nearly a pound a week for three months.
They noted that all the beagles appeared and acted healthy. Then they
butchered a male and a female from each group. They noted that the brain
and testicles of the male fed the highest dose weighed less than those
of the beagles who had been fed less or none at all.
Suddenly, borax was out of fashion among bodybuilders. Scientists who
reviewed the study said one could not draw meaningful conclusions from a
single dog. I don't think the scientists who did the study drew a
conclusion. I think the pharmaceutical industry used that anomaly as
propaganda. Shortly after discontinuing the borax, the scientists had
butchered a second set of beagles and found that those fed the most
borax had the same organ weights as the others.
That's why I'd like to see on what basis they say GMO corn or Roundup
causes problems. CRIIGEN was founded as an anti-GMO group. French
authorities have banned words of English origin ever since Shakespeare's
time. I think CRIIGEN is a manifestation of the same French bigotry.
I don't eat French fries. I have my own secret recipe for freedom
fries. I'll bet CRIIGEN would love to find out what it is so they could
lobby the EPA to outlaw it.
I play it safe by eating freedom fries in the morning and pinto beans in
the evening. Potato and bean farmers don't use Roundup.
This page talks about the benefits of French fries, which they point out
are actually Belgian fries. I suspect that Belgian fries are identical
to my freedom fries because freedom from France is the whole point of
#7 says without adequate potassium, you'll be tireder, weaker, and
slower in reflexes. Not good for working on a sloped roof.
I'll have to measure how much oil I use. It's just enough to transfer
heat from the pan to the bottoms of the potato cubes. If it's a
tablespoon, and it all ends up on my plate, that's about 100 calories.
The government recommends that 30% of calories be fat, so that's a
fraction of what I need.
It's probably not more than 150 grams of potato. That would be about
600 mg of potassium and 140 calories. Hmmm.... 41% of calories from fat,
not far from government guidelines.
My butter consumption went down after I started eating freedom fries
every day. So I guess they help meet my fat needs. I use canola oil.
It's mostly monounsaturated, like olive oil, which Popeye loved as much
It has lots of omega-3, which is supposed to improve cognitive ability
for those of us who are a little slow. Maybe that explains how after
all these years, I finally figured out how to use a stud finder, and it
took only 15 minutes! I'm a regular wiz kid!
lol you're funny! I appreciate the humor. :D
I have southern blood running through my veins, and fried potatoes are
like home town cooking for me. The oil in them doesn't like me as much
as I like the oil in the fried potatoes ever since I had my gall bladder
out some years ago.
Missing Gall bladder? So you have weight problem and digestion problem
which cauases it. However small it is VERY important organ for us.
When talking about Potassium, don't forget Magnesium, you ought know.
My gall bladder started going bad on a Sunday night. Had a sudden attack
and was on the floor crying from the pain for a good 45 minutes. I went
to the Dr's office Monday morning for an ultrasound. I was scheduled to
have it take out that Friday. Tuesday through Thursday before the
surgery I have multiple gall bladder attacks - excruciating pain to the
point I'd be on the floor crying, and they were causes by eating
anything that had even the smallest amount of fat in it. By Friday
morning I was ready to rip the thing out myself.
Right after the gall bladder surgery I had extreme digestion problems.
Couldn't eat anything with fat in it for a long time because I couldn't
digest the fat. Eventually, my body adjusted to where I could eat more
normally, but it took about 10 years to get to this point, although,
sometimes high fat foods still don't agree with me. The fat in fried
foods just me feel bad, too.
I'd rather live w/o a gall bladder than live with the pain when it went
bad. I pay more attention to Potassium, but not so much to Magnesium,
although I'm sure I get magnesium in my diet.
I imagine the trick is not to eat too much fat at one time.
I weighed my Canola bottle when I made fries this morning. I used 10
grams of oil, about 85 calories. Some of the oil ends up on the stove
top, where I have to wipe it up, so I consume less than 10 grams. (My
secret recipe uses silicone.)
One reason I eat fries at breakfast is so I'll get a shot of bile in my
stomach because it takes bile to start to turn the beta carotene in my
vitamin pill, into Vitamin A.
I usually drink a chocolate Boost for breakfast. If I eat something
fried first thing in the morning it has a bad effect on everything and I
can't digest the food at all because of the fat. Everything I eat goes
through in about 20 minutes after I eat, then I feel poorly for a couple
of hours and don't feel like eating anything at all. OTOH, if I don't
eat anything with fat in it first thing in the morning, then 95% of the
time I can handle some fat in the food around lunch time.
I used to put powdered creamer into my morning coffee, but that had a
bad effect, too, so I went to using canned milk (a little sweetness and
a little fat) and my body didn't reject that.
I just can't tolerate much fried foods any more, or high fat foods.
I saw a case of boost (or was it Slimfast) in a custial
closet at church, one time. Asked the custodian if he
was on a diet. No, he keeps em in case he gets hungry
between meals. No cooking or refrigeration needed. Open
it up, drink it in, and he's good till the next meal.
I thought that was clever.

Congratulations Sir! Your skepticism and critical thinking is spot
on. There's a reason you got a 404 error. That study was withdrawn
from the peer reviewed science journal it was published in because
of overwhelming criticism and debunking by peer scientists, with concerns
ranging from poor methods to fraud.
"This article has been retracted: please see Elsevier Policy on Article Wit
hdrawal (http://www.elsevier.com/locate/withdrawalpolicy ).
The journal Food and Chemical Toxicology retracts the article "Long term to
xicity of a Roundup herbicide and a Roundup-tolerant genetically modified m
aize," which was published in this journal in November 2012. This retractio
n comes after a thorough and time-consuming analysis of the published artic
le and the data it reports, along with an investigation into the peer-revie
w behind the article. The Editor in-Chief deferred making any public statem
ents regarding this article until this investigation was complete, and the
authors were notified of the findings."
But the folks with an agenda apparently keep using it anyway and some
people are easily duped.
Unfortunately, "the guys wearing lab coats at the EPA" do not make
policy. The bureaucrats at the EPA do. Who are they? Why "they" are
mostly ex-Monsanto 'crats. Whatta surprise!:
I can drink orange juice, but that doesn't mean it
is safe to pour in my lawn.
Can't quote the source, but on TV one time I saw
a guy claim it was drink it safe. The TV guy
reached under the table and pulled out a spray
bottle of roundup he said he bought earlier that
day. Invited the guy to drink it, the guy
refused. Wisely so, I think.
I use boiling water. A friend gave me her old electric teakettle, I
keep it in the garage and fill it from the outside tap when I take
action against the weeds in cracks. If you've got a surplus tank
sprayer, just fill that with boiling water and you won't even have to
lean over to nail the weeds.
Yes, more weeds will eventually sprout, but it's no big deal. I only
need to do it three or four times a season.
You probably have every thing you need in your kitchen and/or laundry room.
Take a gallon of vinegar mix in a cup of salt and a half cup of dish dete
rgent. Mix it up and spray it on a nice day with no rain in the forecast.
You will notice it to start dying in a couple of hours. In a day or two i
t will all be dead. That is what I do and it works great.
