Why? Why do I read and post on the regular Diet and Nutrition board? WHY?
It's self torture, plain and simple. A vast majority of the time I'm going to disagree with everyone and everything because most everyone is going to go with the mainstream politically correct rhetoric or else far off in a strange equally incorrect direction. So, it's just stupid to go there...yet I do it.
I disagreed with someone's comment that folate is natural and folic acid is artificial. I was like "...BUH?" Turns out the Mayo Clinic, of all places, is spouting this drivel. I disagreed, linking to both wikipedia and SP's vitamin primer on folic acid, and somehow today my comment is gone. What? And one of the official SP bods had replied and basically backed up what I said. So...why was my comment taken down? Was I too inarticulate? Why wasn't the comment with the wrong info taking down, too?
Okay, time to just /stop/ and only post to my precious Nourishing Traditions spark team. Even though two people have thanked me for steering them in another direction, I just need to stop.
