This post brought to you by Duck Dodgers' arrogance. If there ever were an example of what is wrong with science in the Incestral Health Community, it is the phenomenon that is "Duck Dodgers" and his comments here. A seemingly non-controversial post -- on how the US Dietary Guidelines were never any radical departure from the way humans around the globe have eaten for thousands of years -- went viral, at least in part because of Duck's return. What rubs me personally the wrong way about this person (or persons, though I've been told it is only one person who posts with that ID in comments here so I operate on that assumption) is his response to any challenge to "How Food Enrichment Made Us Fat, Diabetic, and Chronically Diseased" otherwise known as the "Iron Food Enrichment Hypothesis". Despite doubling down on the whole fortification thing at the off-the-grid web rental only around a month ago, this guy comes on here and plays word games regarding whether it is even a theory or hypothesis. Duck behaves as if I somehow owe it to him and the internet to take his unscientific self seriously, and if I don't take him and his ideas seriously it can only be that I find them inconvenient to my comfortable mindset.
I have wasted enough time on this whole nonsense, if anyone wants at it they know full well where they can go to discuss it. I don't dabble in non-scientific mumbo jumbo and I laid out some general thoughts on this in this post: Science ... .
