If you’re new to me and my website, I worked daily in the Fitness-, Bodybuilding-, Gym-, and Competitive Sports industry for almost 22-years with nutrition, supplementation, and training — and was involved in it for a total of more than 26 years. Most of that time, I too was trapped in the pseudo-science of “nutrition science” and was fooled by the synthetic toxic crap of the pharmaceutical and supplement industry. My outlook and understanding took a sharp turn as I became severely ill in late 2017 with several tumors, liver and kidney damage and my thyroid shutting down. In a last effort I turned it around in a matter of a few weeks by adopting our natural species appropriate diet of the raw flesh and fat of animals and by following up with regular water-fasting combined with days of dry fasting. You can read more about that here:
For this week’s articles we’ll take a look at T-Nation, the website that once tried to compete with our Ironmag.com back in the late 90’s and early 2000. One of the latest “nutrition” articles is called, “The Healthy Eater’s Guide to Rice,” which is a frikkin’ contradiction in itself. Humans are carnivores, hence there are no plant-based foods that are healthy; as they are not part of our species appropriate, specific specific diet. That’s a no-brainer. However, with that being said, white parboiled rice is still one of the lesser toxic and harmful alternatives if one must turn to slave-foods in case of food scarcity or famine. So, for kicks, let’s take a quick look at this article by TC Luoma, the co-founder of T-Nation.
The article begins with a story, in usual TC fashion, about some snobby brat who want to order ‘brown rice’ at a sushi restaurant. And then he sums up the whole article by stating that white rice is healthier and a better choice than brown, before diving into the comparisons which make up the rest of the article. I do give him props for that, brow rice is pure evil, toxic fibrous sludge better served to pigs than to humans.
“1. Brown Rice Vs. White Rice – Glycemic Index“
BAM! TC falls flat on his face even before he’s off the launch pad. Are you all right, my good man? That seemed to hurt! Mentioning something as heavily debunked and useless as the ‘glycemic index,’ and as your first argument to boot. Oh, the embarrassment. Anyhow, I covered the ‘glycemic index’ in depth here, for those who actually want to learn something. I even named the article most appropriately to avoid any misunderstandings:
And that article goes hand in hand with the following, which is even more important, as it explains the error in even writing about rice and carbohydrates:
Also, carbohydrates are not only toxic and harmful, as your body treats it like a poison — carbohydrate sources also contain deuterium which damages our cell’s mitochondria, something not a single “nutritionist” dare talk about.
Now that new readers properly understand that all carbohydrates (sugar) turn into glucose, and that they all require the same amount of insulin as they are toxic as f**k and need to be removed as quickly as possible, or it would kill us, let’s move on.
“2. Brown Rice Vs. White Rice – Arsenic“
Yes, not only does rice, as all plants, contain a lot of defence chemicals, antinutrients and other toxins, rice is well-known for its high concentrations of arsenic. Now, TC does differentiate between organic and inorganic arsenic. However, none is required by humans and the inorganic kind that is being dumped on all plant-based crops in form of pesticides and fertilizers are extremely toxic. No matter what plant-based slave-crap you consume, there will be residues that enter your body. Rice just happens to be very susceptible to absorbing arsenic.
He does give some advice on how to ‘parboil’ rice to somewhat lower the contents of arsenic (pre-boil for 5 minutes, rinse, and continue to boil in fresh water.) He then claims that this can reduce arsenic up to 73% while preserving minerals. Well, the minerals are bound to antinutrients, as in phytic acid, so they are totally useless anyway. There is no nourishment from rice. It’s simply sugar and some harmful fiber. Emergency energy.
“3. Brown Rice Vs. White Rice – Nutritional Value“
This bullet-point could just as well have been left out. There is pretty much ZERO nutritional value in rice, just as there are abysmal amounts of bioavailable nutrition in any plant food, vegetable, or whatever. The minerals are bound to antinutrients and to fiber. The vitamins, if any, are not bioavailable for humans and need to be converted in enzymatic processes which yields less than 8%. And of course, most vitamins are destroyed or washed out if you cook the plant-based sludge.
“4. Brown Rice Vs. White Rice – Fiber“
Another nosedive by Mr. Luoma. There is not a single paper in any literature supporting the ludicrous idea that humans need fiber in their diet. Actually, there is a lot of research claiming the exact opposite. And a lot of supporting evidence for all the ailments caused by fiber. I covered fiber in this fine piece of work, where I capitalized the most important word, so even vegtards would understand:
So, yeah, that bullet-point was totally useless. Let’s move on.
“The Judges’ Decision“
Oh, that was it, I suppose. And as you already know, TC gave the victory to white rice. And if you had to chose your poison, I would agree. However, there is no need to consume this slave-sludge ever, not unless there is a severe food crisis. In that case, white rice would be the least damaging offender and a thousand times better than extremely toxic oats, bread or anything grains, seeds, or nuts.
To be fair, I do like TC Luoma and he has written a lot of good articles. However, he needs to get his head out of the pseudoscience that is ‘nutrition.’ There is no such thing as “Nutrition Science,” there is only Nutrition Ideology. Here, old friend, read this, you’ll thank me later:
Otherwise, you might have to change your company name to E-Nation, just saying…
