Why Can't We All Just Get Along?

One of the things I both love and hate about nutrition and healthy living blogging and research is the tremendous amount of passion with which people fuel their convictions.

I love it because it sure makes life interesting. I hate it because oftentimes (and I'm certainly not innocent here either) it leads to people taking a difference of opinion as a personal slight.

At the end of the day, whatever strategy or theory you might espouse, sometimes it's a good idea to remember that we're all in this together and more likely than not, have the same end goals in mind - a happier and healthier population.

So for today's Funny Friday picture your favorite feuding duo and then watch this video.  Maybe we can learn to all get along.

Have a great weekend

    Can I get a massage too? ;-)

    " ... have the same end goals in mind - a happier and healthier population."

    Therefore it's difficult to understand where all hatred, bitterness and smearing is springing from. Afterall, we have some contradictory studies and data but the big picture on healthy diet is pretty clear for open-minded ones.

    That said, most of the discussion takes place in good spritit -sometimes even in dialectic manner. And that's really the fun part!

  4. So, you going to offer to give a back massage to Rhona Applebaum, Coke's chief scientific officer?

    The reason we cannot get along is because there is no clearly defined and agreed-upon "enemy," so we keep seeing enemies hiding behind every rock.

    1. Nope, industry not part of post above.

      Maybe me and Gary Taubes can give each other back massages, but not me and the food industry.

      They're not part of the solution. Not the same team.

  6. That's such a great video. Instantly put a smile on my face. Thanks for sharing it. I want to have a family of pets that can do that!
