…the number one way to keep from getting
a cold or flu is to wash your hands. Most cold and flu viruses are spread
by direct contact. Someone who has a cold or flu and sneezes onto their
hands or picks their nose, (remember, you can pick your friends, and
you can pick your nose, but you can’t pick your friend’s nose) then touches
a glass, a railing, a telephone or a door knob, can spread their illness.
Microorganisms can live for hours, and in some cases weeks, only to be
picked up by the next person who touches the object. So wash your hands
often. (WebMD, Oct 21, 2004)
…soy isn’t what it’s cracked up to be. In fact, many experts claim soy is not only a health risk, but that it can have irreversible side effects. One of these experts is Dr. Kaayla T. Daniel. In her new book “The Whole Soy Story,” she reports that pediatricians are seeing more and more cases of emasculated boys reaching puberty with breasts, tiny penises and undescended testicles due to being fed soy formula as infants.
…soya flour lowers testosterone levels. Low levels of testosterone can be detrimental to gaining muscle mass and strength. There is a direct relationship between the level of your testosterone and your relative strength. A study by British scientists showed that subjects who were given soya flour supplements had a 10 percent decrease in blood testosterone. The test subjects took the supplements for six weeks. All you idiots out there drinking soy milk and consuming other soy products stop immediately. The wool has been pulled over your eyes by the United Soybean Board. And by the way, one of soy beans main uses in Asia is for fertilizer. (Eor. J.Clin. Nutr., 57: 100-106, 2003)
…obesity may be contagious. Thirty percent of the obesity epidemic in America is caused by an infection, according to Dr. Atkinson of the University of Wisconsin Medical School. The infection is caused by the Ad36 virus. He claims that animals infected with the virus increase their body fat by 50 to 100 percent. Could we someday see people standing in line for a fat vaccine? Or a “tub of lard” vaccine? Or an “I haven’t seen my dick in two years” vaccine? Or a “super size me” vaccine? (WebMD, Aug 5, 2004)
