Join the Wheat Belly defense!

First he claims that every instance of produce and meat is GMO'd and hormoned to the point of poison; then he says he wasn't talking about produce and lean meat! I don't know what's up with him; but it's Conventional Wisdom all the way... "everybody knows" fat causes heart disease.

It's an uphill battle.
It's was waste of time to try to have a discussion with someone who has a closed mind.

I was once cautioned 'Never wrestle with a pig. You both get covered in s**t, and the pig likes it'. Same goes for Trolls I guess.

That's always an immediate turn-off for me. As for the rest of it, good grief!

Yes; it's just that, like a lot of people, I hate to see lies go unchallenged. There's always someone who might come by and believe them.
