Dear Lord Jesus, I am so happy you are real and are for me and not against me. How horrible life was before you saved me. I am so glad to be your child. Will you rescue me from myself and help me to serve you in your wisdom and grace? I love you Lord! How precious are your thoughts to me. How great is your faithfulness! Will you bless this time of writing?
So, today I would like to start with toying with breaking down an idea that science is based upon. Double blind studies stand upon the premise that the placebo effect is true which I find curious since the placebo effect somewhat blends psychology with medicine. I imagine many people could come up with several ideas why those taking a placebo respond positively to the placebo, but my little attempt and I mean little because I am not smart, is based on psychology and how some people have a disposition toward niceness and a how do you say, propensity toward non-confrontation. Has the placebo effect been tried on a group of people with this one same personality trait – the people who will say, “Yes, that dress makes you look fat.”? I am just wondering. I don’t think scientists actually want to poke holes in the placebo effect, but it is based on psychology and is only explainable by a theory. What if there’s actually another explanation than the one given? I imagine that brilliant minds could come up with alternate explanations much better than mine. How fun to think about such things although I do feel a bit guilty and think I should be thinking about Christ all the time! He really is so much more interesting and fulfilling than trying to help people break free from their diseases. Science is what most people go to for proof so I must too. Just look at this blog chock full of science and proof.
Anyway, I need to make a call for a double blind study on vitamin E and lysolecithin. Some doctoral student out there needs to pick up this idea and follow these steps to determine if certain doses of vitamin E increase lysolecithin levels. I am most interested in you determining how much vitamin E is used by someone eating purely health foods and using products with tocopherols. So, I suggest buying a lot of processed health foods (like Cascadian Farm) and products (like Burt’s Bees and 100 Percent Pure) and determining how much vitamin E is used as tocopherols in these. Then you’d need to determine about how much one is consuming on a high end including vitamin E supplements and how much on a low end perhaps with just one food item or product a day. I think many people would be interested in this information, and it would be helpful for those trying to live a healthy lifestyle. I am certainly interested in knowing. Is vitamin E as tocopherol harmful to our central nervous system by raising lysolecithin levels?
Another thing, with my blog, you really must read it like a webpage and start at the very beginning = Death by Food and read up. Using the Search feature is great to pinpoint information on the disease you are dealing with. I don’t really recommend following my blog at all until you’ve started at the beginning and then read up; there’s really no way to follow what I’m saying otherwise.
Also, I am here to help you even though I may not like you and your old crotchety self. :) I do wind up liking some people, like Sue, who comments and keeps it real. I don’t mind pertinent websites even if you are trying to sell something helpful. I’m not selling anything for sure. I am just trying to help. So, thanks for reading and remember to start with Death by Food, and of course read about infant formula and the food lists if you have children.
Dear Lord Jesus, thank you for this time to write and think and be your child. I love you. You are great. Thank you for teaching me about the gospel, that you died for sins on the cross and rose from the dead and are alive in heaven now. I praise you Lord.
