And as I mentioned to the mom who sent the sheet my way, these sorts of partnerships are so commonplace nowadays that they can be considered the norm.
People tend not to question norms.
Our new norms are awful.
"Data based on consumer perception after a 60 day home-use trial of PhystoSport products by 25 Arbonne Independent Consultants, Arbonne employees, and friends."
"Please remember - More than one (1) drink each day (if you are 21, of course) increases your odds of developing breast cancer. Alcohol can increase the levels of some hormones such as estrogen and unusually high levels of estrogen increases the risk of breast cancer. We know it's not fair, but think of the consequences if you drink too much. Be responsible and drink in moderation if you do."But beyond ironic is what's odd.
"I have read and understood BMJ policy on declaration of interests and declare I have received modest honorariums for presenting my research findings to a variety of groups related to the medical, restaurant, financial, meat, and dairy industries. I am also a board member of a non-profit organization, the Nutrition Coalition, dedicated to ensuring that nutrition policy is based on rigorous science. This article was fully funded with a grant from the Laura and John Arnold Foundation."What wasn't as odd, or at least not as unexpected as Teicholz' original lack of disclosure, was the passionate nature of responses to her piece, and then of course the passionate and rather partisan nature of the rebuttals to the rebuttals, and rich in all of them were cries of conflict of interest.
"There is emerging evidence to suggest that the health effects of saturated fats could vary depending on the food sources in which they are found."They then make a series of recommendations that eschew a threshold or limit for saturated fat and instead are reminiscent of Brazil's recently published national dietary guidelines - which can be boiled down to cooking more with fresh, whole ingredients while minimizing restaurant and ultra-processed foods.
This back & forth is becoming so stale. Can we focus on what we agree upon? I.e. more whole foods, less processed https://t.co/FHdEnV3yrN— Sarah Kunkle (@sareve) September 25, 2015
