Uh, maybe, maybe not. PETA's top priority is serving animals and nature, not society. I suspect most members of PETA would think it perfectly acceptable, and probably even good for the planet, if there weren't so many humans (they died off earlier in life, etc), especially if it means better treatme...

Well ok, but that's just more evidence of incompetence and group-think, not conflict of interest / bias or malice.

PETA, with years of those anti-meat and pro-carbohydrate ads have probably done more than any other single non-profit organization to harm the health of Americans.

5:3 sounds about right - but I could see 6:2 pretty easily, and of course GSP in the personal fight.

So, analogizing your examples, you think "Given that libertarian X believes a child becomes a legal person is prior to birth" is a logical fallacy? Ie, it's impossible for a libertarian to believe that an unborn child is a legal person? It's impossible for them to believe the child is LEGALLY a per...

"Non-interest budget" is a commonly used measure in any accounting situation. If you include interest then everything else goes down by the same factor. That's not "spin." The idea that SS and Medicare are taxed "separately" definitely is spin. There is no "lock box" - it's all one pile of fungible ...

I'm not sure they were trying to "fool people" into thinking that only the food industry leverages political power and litigation. I think it was more that they were trying to make a feature-length film without getting too deep into a boring science lecture, so they wanted to have some other filler ...

Could be. If there's evidence that any of these doctors are a member of PETA, or getting funding from the corn industry etc, I'd be more inclined towards the conflict of interest or bias explanations.

No one's used Creatine HCL here? There are apparently only 2 brands out right now that have it, one of which (GNC) I found an article saying the combination of ingredients inhibited absorption. That leaves one brand, "Con-Cret", which I'd be most curious about...

Skipping every other stair should bring more glute/ham in. I think I saw that recommended by some football coach one time... but yea hundreds of reps of anything is going to be cardio, but as far as cardio goes, I'd think stairs would be one of the better choices - up there with the (I imagine) tort...

I'll sometimes do 100mg caffeine pre-workout. I only do it on weekends, since I feel like it impacts how long it takes me to go to sleep. Caffeine is the only supplement I've ever taken that seems to have a noticeable impact on my workout. My rough estimate would be on a 4x10 series, it seems to be ...

A "legal person" is a person as recognized by society's legal system. Yes, you can kill people in certain situations and have it not be "murder". Who -should- be a legal person is a matter of opinion. Who -is- a legal person is a matter of law. For instance, I suspect there are some members of PETA ...

Right, lies supporting lies is good synopsis of the group-think phenomenon. It's easy to assume everyone else has already validated the underlying hypotheses that you're using as the basis of your research. In this specific example, they all apparently thought that 30-60% of calorie intake from carb...

Yes, if you want to feed an army and keep them just barely alive enough to keep working, using the least possible land, then grains is the way to go.

Also, not sure where "raw veg only" came from - pretty much everyone on the exrx forums are pro-meat.
