- Teen who ate almost nothing but ramen noodles for 13 years has health of 80-year-old (Natural News, April 25, 2013):
Since she was about five years old, Georgi Readman from the Isle of Wight in the U.K. has been eating primarily ramen noodles and nothing more for virtually every meal. And now the 18-year-old girl is suffering the health consequences, as reports indicate that her persistent aversion to fruit and vegetables has rendered her severely malnourished and about as healthy as an average 80-year-old.
It all began when Georgi first savored the artificial flavors and salt chemicals laced in a packet of ramen noodles when she was a child. She almost immediately decided that ramen noodles were her food of choice, and gradually phased out all other foods, including nourishing foods like whole fruit and vegetables. Today, she eats ramen noodles for almost every meal, even though it has caused her quite a few problems both bodily and socially.
“I hate the texture of fruit and vegetables,” says Georgi, as quoted by the New York Daily News (NYDN). “I can’t go to my friends’ for dinner or go out for meals because I don’t want them to see me freak out if the side salad touches the stuff I eat.” Continue reading »
- McDonald’s Hamburger Looks the Same…14 Years After Purchase! (Liberty Blitzkrieg, April 23, 2013):
I’ve heard rumors about this before, but figured it was just an urban legend. Apparently not! So Utah resident, David Whipple, originally decided he wanted to save a McDonald’s burger for a couple of months to see what would happen. It didn’t decompose at all. Then he forgot about it in a coat pocket for a year or so until his wife accidentally found it. Still no change. So he decided to save it even longer. Now, 14 years later, he has informed the world that amazingly it still looks the same.
From the Daily Mail:
A Utah man has unearthed a McDonald’s hamburger he bought in 1999 – and the sandwich looks exactly the same as the day it was first flipped.
David Whipple kept the fast food meal for a month to show friends how the preservative-packed hamburger would keep its composure.
‘My wife didn’t discover it until at least a year or two after that,’ he said. ‘And we pulled it out and said “oh my gosh. I can’t believe it looks the same way.”‘
However, even he was shocked to see that the hamburger still looks the same a whopping 14 years later.
The burger had no signs of mold, fungus or even a strange odor, the show’s hosts said. The only thing that had changed over the years was that the pickle had disintegrated.
Whipple, who still has the original receipt for the burger, said he now shows the sandwich to his grandchildren to encourage them to eat healthily.
Who needs canned beans, spam and freeze dried food when apparently all you need are Happy Meals?

- It’s A Brain? It’s A Kidney? It’s KFC’s Next PR Nightmare (ZeroHedge, Jan 8, 2013):
As if Yum Brands were not suffering enough this morning – as they forecast China comp sales to drop 6% (more than the forecast 4% decline), it seems the UK has their next PR disaster waiting to happen, courtesy of their KFC brand. After a 19-year-old Brit found a “horrible wrinkled foreign body” in his fried chicken meal, KFC has apologized (rather magnanimously) saying “while there was no health risk, we agree it was unsightly.” Judge for yourself just how puke-worthy and generally emotionally scarred you would have been after biting into this ‘brain-looking’ image. KFC clarifies: “Although we haven’t received the product, it appears from a photograph that unfortunately on this occasion a kidney, and not a brain as claimed, was not removed in the preparation process.” Oh, just a kidney? Pass the salt then.

- “Survival Of The Fattest”: It’s A Fat, Fat World After All (ZeroHedge, Nov 24, 2012):
Back in March, we first presented a rather stunning finding: by 2020 75% of Americans will be obese or overweight. This was promptly followed up with a post showing just how it is transpired that America became the fattest nation in the world in less than 20 years. What however may not be known, is that America’s fatness epidemic is not localized to the country that gave the world the McDonalds burger (and the McMansion): it really is a fat, fat world, after all. Behold – survival of the fattest:
It is hardly surprising in this light, then, that the estimate for number of people living with diabetes has been increased, to 371 million – an increase of 11% over 2011.
… and we certainly do have more than one problem.
This is the ‘Greatest Depression’.
- Chart Of The Day: When $0.99 Becomes Unaffordable, We Have A Problem (ZeroHedge, Nov 8, 2012):
Earlier today, fast food juggernaut McDonalds reported same store sales for the month October. At -1.8%, this number was well below expectations of -1.1%, and a drop from September’s 1.9%. It was driven by a 2%+ drop in comp store sales across all locations: US, Europea and APMEA, with the US performing just as bad as Europe. Most importantly, this was the first monthly drop in MCD comp sales since March 2003! So our question is: at what point does the perpetually self-deluded US population finally admit to itself that when even 99 cent meals are no longer affordable, that this country has a problem?
Charting the last 4 years of McD sales, and eagerly looking forward to 4 more years.
- Study of the Day: See Big Mac, Want Big Mac (The Atlantic, June 26, 2012):
PROBLEM: Though previous studies have predictably shown that food advertisements make people think of eating, little research has been done to understand how the brain responds to such visual cues and what feelings they elicit.
METHODOLOGY: University of Southern California researchers led by Kathleen Page used functional magnetic resonance imaging to measure the neurological responses of 13 obese, Hispanic women ages 15 to 25 and see if food reminders trigger hunger and cravings. They chose women for their known responsiveness to food cues and Hispanics because of the high risk of obesity and type 2 diabetes in their community.
RESULTS: Viewing images of high-fat food items stimulated the appetite and reward centers in the respondents’ brains. Interestingly, taking in glucose and fructose through sweetened drinks while inspecting the pictures also led to a desire for savory foods. Continue reading »
- Why You Should Avoid Fast Food at All Costs (Natural Society, Mar 24, 2012):
It is no secret that the average American diet is in completely in the slumps. Consuming packaged foods, fast food, artificially enhanced products, and especially low quality cheap food is the norm, but is it any wonder that being overweight while also falling victim to a host of illnesses is also the norm. Being raised in this era of poor health makes it difficult to know what is truly healthy and unhealthy. Food has drastically changed since decades ago, and so parents often aren’t aware of the severe decline in food quality. Fast food in particular is one of the primary reasons for the drastic health decline seen today.

“This is all part of the vaccine eugenics agenda, of course, which specifically targets minorities and low-income families.”
- Health insurance company preys upon the poor with junk food reward program for vaccinating your baby (Natural News, Jan. 23, 2012):
“Will vaccinate my baby for food!” That seems to be the goal of a program launched last year by the UnitedHealthcare health insurance company of Michigan. It has resorted to enticing parents with junk food to convince them to inject their infants with potentially deadly vaccines containing brain-damaging chemicals. This has been revealed in a letter acquired by NaturalNews and signed by Stephanie Esters, a vaccine-pushing RN who works for UnitedHealthcare.
The letter declares “Get a FREE $20 McDonalds, Rite Aid, Target or Meijer Gift Card when your child gets recommended shots before their second birthday.” It even goes on to offer a “FREE ride to the doctor” for those who are so poor that they don’t own cars.
Childhood vaccines, of course, are loaded with extremely toxic chemical adjuvants — chemicals designed to cause neurological inflammation in order to invoke an immunological reaction. Vaccines also contain both mercury and aluminum, both of which are highly toxic brain poisons. This is why many children who are injected with such vaccines become autistic virtually overnight (their brains are poisoned beyond their biological threshold).
