How does Misinformation go unchallenged ?
1) Failure to use the scientific method !
2) A lack of critical thinking about existing information !
3) Follow the leader mentality !
4) Fear of being different !
5) Blind trust in books and magazines !
6) Mass marketing !
7) Because changing the way you think is scary !
Warning: Bread is Evil.
It's Time Somebody Did Something About Bread !
Did you know:
1) More than 98 percent of convicted criminals are bread eaters !
2) Exactly half of all children who grow up in bread - eating
households score in the bottom 50% on standardized IQ tests !
3) In the 19th century, when virtually all bread was baked in the
home, the average life expectancy was less than 55 years; infant
mortality rates were unacceptably high; many women died in
childbirth; and diseases such as typhoid, scarlet fever, smallpox
and influenza ravaged entire nations !
4) Statistics show that more than 75 % of violent crimes are
committed within 24 hours of eating bread !
5) Bread is made from a substance called "dough." Researchers have
proven that as little as one pound of dough can choke a large animal
like a horse. The average person eats more bread than that in one
6) Bread is known to be extremely addictive. Subjects deprived of
bread and given only water, actually begged for bread after just two
7) Bread is a "gateway" food item, which usually leads to such items
as butter, jam, peanut butter and even ... bacon !
8) Bread has been proven to kill. Scientists have now uncovered
alarming evidence that 100% of the people who eat bread will
eventually die !
9) Unattended newborn babies can choke on bread !
10) Bread is baked at temperatures as high as 425 degrees Fahrenheit!
Don't laugh...that kind of heat can kill a full grown adult in less than five minutes.
11) 96 % of cancer victims eventually admit that they've eaten bread
12) Sadly, 9 out of 10 bread eaters are unable to distinguish
between significant scientific fact and meaningless statistical babbling.
One could argue that every one of these individual "factoids" about
bread is "true." The way the "factoids" compare bread with danger,
and the use of official - statistical - scientifically sounding words
cause the unthinking reader to make connections of logic that aren't
The only one that's true is #12.
The others falsely imply new information that really isn't there !
The very real problem is that much of the information in our modern
society is presented this way.
