So I love watching documentaries and educating series. Often I stumble upon series that are supposed to be educational but end up being a pile of rubbish on tape.
Today I discovered one of those crappy shows. It is called "You are what you eat".
It begins with a man describing an obese woman featured in each episode like some nasty high school bully. Degrading comments are made all the time, adjectives like "disgusting, lazy" etc are thrown around constantly and the poor obese person gets treated like some criminal.
If that wasn't enough the so called "nutritionist" throws around her garbage advice. "Your body can't do anything with sugar" "The preservatives you eat will preserve your body if you die" are just examples of uneducated quotes.
And there is more. On the show they take samples of the obese "victim's" feces and talk about how much it stinks.
I hadn't heard a claim like "fat people's feces stinks more" before and decided, as always, to check how much truth there is to it.
The result was that instead of finding any scientific evidense I found sites with people cursing at fat people in general, or specifically about fat ex wives/husbands, fat friends and so on.
Days like these make me feel pretty sad for our species. It comes as no surprise to me of course that we are an intolerant bunch of creatures and how easily we accept pseudo-scientific crap just to fit it into a childish point of view...
I feel very, very sad...
How many people's lives are being ruined just because some oversized under-brained bullies can't find a hobby!
