Parents use religion to avoid vaccines – Yahoo! News
Seriously, people? Autism is a very complicated condition, and it is not – repeat NOT – likely to be caused from something simple like a vaccine. People that make the link say that autism rates are rising…but could it be that, like diabetes, the rates are rising because the definition of autism has changed?? I’m certainly not saying that autism is not a serious condition – for those that are affected, it certainly is – but it seems that autism is the new ADD – fucking everyone has it, and if you can’t figure out what is “wrong” with a kid, s/he is autistic. Let’s let diseases be, and accept that individual variations in a person aren’t always a clinical problem that needs to be treated.

Junkfood Science: Junkfood Science Exclusive: The big one — results of the biggest clinical trial of healthy eating ever
Best ending to an article ever:
Health is not evidence of moral
character and pristine diets. Don’t let anyone try to scare you,
threaten you, or get you to believe that if you don’t eat “right”
(whatever their definition) you’ll get fat, cancer, heart disease, or
die sooner. There is simply no good evidence.

Damn, I love this woman. I hate Ann Coulter with a hatred I usually reserve for ex-husbands, but Melissa totally put the smack-down on Maxim for hating her in a stupid way.

As you might have noticed, I have become a great lurker on the fatosphere. I don’t have anything particularly interesting to say, and when I do, other woman have said it best. I find that many weeks my best “clippings” come from these woman. Yay!

For fuck’s sake (see “CUSS”, above). When we people fucking learn about what PP really does? Also, you thorn-in-my-ass anti-choice people, if you don’t give access to/information about birthcontrol, there are MORE abortions. The best way to prevent abortion? Prevent unwanted pregnancies!

Oh, another wonderful thing on my Christmas list. I really, really need to find some rich relatives.
From Overheard in Chicago:
Man: “I try to help as much as I can.”
Woman: “But you don’t do anything. When I ask for help, you always say you can’t, or you’ll do it later, or some other excuse.”
“But, honey, you don’t understand. The more I help, the more I cause
problems. I can get in the way. I can do something wrong. I can mess
something up. The more I’d help, the more you’d need to clean up after
me. By NOT helping, I’m actually doing more than you think.”
