Yep--just read this on another forum....I mean no wonder we're a nation of fatties....utter...total....mind-boggling stupidity....I'm not terribly suprised by this to be honest.....as depressing a thought as that might be. I don't think it's so much stupidity as the fact that we all have something of a credulous believing brain to some degree......and the advertising world knows how to make full use of it.Terms like "natural", "organic", "holistic" etc. are bandied around and sell a lot more products or services than you'd expect. Look at how "low fat" managed to pursuade so many folk that, say, Snackwell cookies and soda and whatnot were reasonable additions to a nutritious diet......and look at how the low carb gurus are now making out like bandits by pursuading those same folk that their obesity is due to faulty advice rather than their own credulity or that weight management is not a matter of calories in vs calories out etc. etc.I'm no better. I'm a sucker for skin care products and slick marketing and would spend money like there's no tomorrow but for the fact that so much stuff I squandered my $$bucks on has caused me to break out.You have to shake your head at it all.
