Several individuals have asked to post the "other" big news that made the rounds of newspapers today, i.e., that the organization which stated the entire weight-epidemic hoax has finally acknowledged some of its blunders, and admitted that its numbers were fourteen times higher than the facts reveal.
Fourteen times. And there's more . . .
However, we held off including a forum post about this information until now, because we knew that the Center for Consumer Freedom--which has arguably been more diligent in exposing weight-related myths than any other entity--would eventually publish a write-up about these findings, along with a comprehensive list of corroborating links. And sure enough, it has.
You can find a link to the Center's extensive account of how this myth (which is only the latest in a long tradition of carefully-crafted hoaxes designed to achieve the ends of certain individuals with very specific interests) is unravelling before its creators' eyes.
Be warned, though. The language is, as usual, quite size-negative.
And for those who knew that this whole entire debate was a farce from the get-go, feel free to give this link a pass, and rest assured that the validity of your position is increasingly being confirmed.
