    Are you still around? I'm a public health student interested in working on obesity/weight loss/etc. issues. I'd love to talk with you!

    ps. You are very abrasive in your message board posts, but I could see how it would be frustrating given the amount of mythical information in nutrition/weight loss/health

    I just wanted to drop you a line, because I was quite upset with your approach on the message boards-and I've noticed that you communicate that way alot.

    You sound like a knowledgeable person in your field, perhaps it's time to start working on those communication skills.

    I'd like SPARK to be a positive place to come to-and your responses are unnecessarily harsh. Just wanted to let you know you what a negative impact you had on me.

    After reading many of your blogs/posts, I wanted to let you know that I appreciate your knowledge, and I actually agree with 99% of what you have to say (which you may not care either way-as I am simply a lay person when it comes to your field of expertise).

    I believe your message gets lost, however, underneath the hostile presentation of it. I'm sure that you have been frustrated for years with lay people "sharing" their stories and whatnot, but try to cut us a little slack. I am interested in what you have to say, however, it's hard to get past the angry insults.

    Not all of us have access to the information you have. And we tend to "trust" those with the MD titles.

    I was so upset by your hostile response to my comment, that I said some sarcastic things myself. I apologize for my part of our arguement.

    I think if you had more details on my experience with the so called "cleanse" that I did, you would see that it wasn't the type of cleanse/detox you are against (which I am also against). I don't advocate detoxes. I was just sharing my experience.

    In any case, (whether you care or not) I wish you well, and look forward to reading your future posts/blogs. Take care!
    A little more patience - emoticon

    Greetings, OPUSEVA! I just wanted to say, you made me LOL with your post on the message boards about the daikon/carrot thread. I think a lot of us were thinking the same thing.

    I appreciate your comments on the message boards. I'm a biochemist myself, so it's good to hear someone else knock down all these nutso body myths that people have come up with and just give the facts. Cheers!

    Some people hate to be confused by the facts. My goal is to stop making comments on obvious myths and allow others with the background to be able to at least try and make some kind of factual impact. I for one, appreciate your comments,,, Lizzy
