I posted a digest of an article from Science News, and said that I would post the full article as soon as I could find one that was not behind a paywall. I received a sharp, abrupt, and rather rudely worded response from Carol who was, basically, wanting to know WTF I was doing posting such a piece (Korean/Japanese research that high fat and glucose appeared to have a negative impact on the brain, i.e.: dementia. I looked at the protocols, noted the absence of study subjects’ demographics - among other things - and, not being advanced in biochemistry, asked for interpretation. Carol’s reaction seemed to arise from some fear that I was rumor-mongering that high fat caused dementia. I withdrew the post; I am still looking for a “free” copy, and when I do get my hands on it, I will not risk posting it - or perhaps anything else - in the Show Me the Science forum. There is another that is inhabited by hard-core science types, and I will post it, and my questions there.
The response was out of line and it stood in great contraposition to all of the other responses - and experiences - I have ever had with 2 KetoDudes or with the ketogenicforum. So, I asked for posting guidelines.
Her rudeness truly cheapens what is being done here, and it is, as I noted above, not typical of my interactions with folks on this board and on this path. Carol’s reaction serves to undercut any respect she might otherwise be due in any comments she has or may make.
That is the sh!t that happened.
I withdrew the summary. I will not post in this forum again until I have run it through the scientist “geeks” in another group so I won’t run the risk of being dressed down.
Thanks for your comment. I have nothing more to say or to add on this matter.
