Okay, honestly people.
When do I get to go on the Today Show and peddle my craziness? "From the lady who brought you the Thighmaster and Boob Lifter, comes the latest in her plight to fight fat and leaky gut syndrome."
I'm not kidding. In the interview, she cites "leaky gut" syndrome as a medical condition, caused by eating corn fed beef. I might be a little bit sensitive to this, but I am indeed taking offense to the latest installment of Suzanne Somers' attack on American Livestock Producers and their products.
This has got to stop.
This is the second time this month that this woman, a person who is famous for her short shorts and blond hair, not her medical expertise, has come out proclaiming that beef, unless grass fed and organic, is basically toxic for your body, causing holes that lead to "leaky gut syndrome."
Now, I am not saying that in a country where we value our freedom of expression, speech and choice, should one not be able to choose his or her own food, and where it comes from. HOWEVER...one should have actual medical or scientific facts behind the choice, especially before going on national television and shooting down an industry entirely.
Somers's take on beef is that the corn fed to the animals has antibiotics in it, and that is what is making us all sick and fat. The CORN has antibiotics in it.
Huh. Now, we all know we have the option to give our plants Miracle Grow or put some sort of fertilizer on them, but I have never seen or heard about plants being administered antibiotics through injections.
This information is also coming from the woman who takes over 100 vitamins and supplements per day and has obviously injected most of her revenue from her crazy books into the the Botox injections in her face.
Thanks for keeping it au naturale, Chrissy.
This is obscene. How come there was no rebuttal position from a livestock farmer, beef industry executive or even MEDICAL DOCTOR during this segment? Thankfully, Natalie Morales did point out that Somers basically was peddling craziness (not in so many words), citing that there were no actual medical doctors used as experts in her book, and that such illnesses as "leaky gut" were not actual medical conditions, nor were her claims of eating corn fed beef causing holes in the stomach valid, according to the FDA. Thanks for that, Natalie, but WHY THE HECK IS THIS LADY ON YOUR SHOW ANYWAY???
Honestly people, please do not get your information about food and eating and whatever from Suzanne Somers. Please do not accept this as something that is anything other than a famous person with a platform that is doing essentially what I do, which is RANT!!!! I at least have some sort of expert around whom I can ask questions to.
My hope is that whatever choice you make, base it upon FACTS, not a woman who roller skated her way into the hearts of Americans in the seventies.
Come and knock on my door, Chrissy. Bring it on.
