  • I don’t know about other bike shares in the country, but we have Bird and Neuron where I live, and they are extremely uncomfortable to ride. No suspension, solid tires (or tire liners), and a very clunky feeling ride.

    You’d have to really want to use them to tolerate anything past your first ride.

    Now, if these felt more like a premium bike, then it would make people want to use them all the time.

  • Why do they continue to publish articles literally stating the same facts, word for word, from those old, published position statements?

    The science hasn’t changed. In fact, it’s only supported plant-based diets over the years.

    If you talk to a registered dietitian today, they will say the same thing. At least, that’s been my experience through working with several over the years.

    Either way, it doesn’t particularly matter to me. I’ve been vegan for over two decades and my doctor is quite happy with my health.

  • They did not retract or change their position, though.

    And they still publish information based on the same wording and conclusions they had when they did publish a position.

    I’m not sure what’s so confusing about this. They did not change their position on plant-based diets, and I believe because it would be redundant to keep saying what the science has confirmed year after year.

    Is there any position they continually confirm year after year? If so, I’d be really surprised, unless the science isn’t supporting their position, so they have to give their reasons for still having them.

    The only article I linked was reviewed by their people just a few weeks ago, so it’s as current as you could expect.

    It’s not that they no longer support the idea of a plant-based diet, it’s more likely that plant-based diets are so overwhelmingly supported by the evidence that they no longer have to keep saying it out loud.

    Especially since their recent articles seem to echo what their position paper on vegetarian diets already said years ago. To them, it’s like common knowledge.

    That said, they are one of dozens of dietetic and health authorities around the world who have made it clear that a plant-based diet can not only be appropriate for all life stages, but it can be used to reverse certain diseases (i.e heart disease and T2 diabetes) when other diets simply can’t compare.

  • MSG = headaches is actually true for many people.

    "Effect of systemic monosodium glutamate (MSG) on headache and pericranial muscle sensitivity :

    “We conducted a double-blinded, placebo-controlled, crossover study to investigate the occurrence of adverse effects such as headache… there was a significant increase in reports of headache…” SOURCE

    In addition, if you add oil to your cooked and drained pasta, it absolutely stops it from sticking vs. not adding oil. Just don’t add it to the water, as it’s just wasteful.
