tv IS AN AMAZING THING and I being a normal all american paycheck to paycheck factory worker watched way too much tv in my time and what is even worse, you never know how much they are just brain washing you.
Anyway, one day many years ago I watched a show on how they determine calories and they used the same machine we had in the factory lab for testing/proving the quality of our plating solutions for customers such as airforce/army that demanded their bearings be made to exact specs, etc....
The machine burns what ever your testing and analyzes the fumes. They use gas's to eliminate contamination from the room air, etc....and it would appear the machine could be set up for testing many/many differant things other than what the factory was testing for and looked exactly like the testing machine to determine calories in foods.....and calories were determined by how well your food products do "BURN UP" and the gas's they release just like burning a wood log in a furnace.
So if they burn a potato, the scientist eventually comes up with an "average" of how that potato burns up and then the non educated are lead to believe a potato has X amount of calories; which is all B/S; because every potato is differant. The type of ground it was raised in makes a giant differance....the thickness of the skin and no 2 potatoes are the same, etc........it is all 100% scientific college garbage that food manufacturers manipulate to say anything they want to make their sales......and nothing more.
WHY NOTHING MORE???
Because the human body does not BURN FOOD, it struggles to remove the foods and we call it wet crap/urine...THE BURN comes from burning up HUMAN CELLS in the process. The harder it is to make the food small enough to eliminate out the body, the MORE HUMAN CELLS BURN UP and are RELEASED back to outerspace as ENERGY!!!!!!!!!!!!
Check around, the good scientist state energy can never ever ever be used, it can only be channeled. House electric is not USED, it is returned back into the GROUND! Our NASA buddy told me that "IF" we humans could ever actually "USE" energy, it would simply come from outerspace and replace what we used, BUT we can not use it, we only manipulate it....
BUT, human energy comes from SPACE (HEAVEN) and when we loose it, it returns back to SPACE. This is also why MONKS use to drag their dead out to the ravens and peel all the meat from the bones and feed it to the birds....the faster all the flesh was consumed, the faster all of the human was returned to heaven....(don't believe in that, but religions do what religions do).
LIFE is energy.
Real scientitist learned about bomb making from the study of the human eye, I read that they believe a human eye has enough energy within it to blow up a small city.
"IF" an eye could blow up a city, then your entire human body can expell energy everytime you eat junk foods and that feel of ENERGY is your OWN DEATH of "YOU"...thus the consumption of meat is the deadliest food for a human, same as cheese is...because it can set in the stomach for 5-10 hours...causing human cells to be destroyed.
The Pork Chop Diet
Eat nothing but pork chops and you will get thin as can be, because your body will waste away as you try to dissolve the pig meat.
People dissolve away by smoking, simply because the humans cells are denied oxygen or LIFE. HUMANS ARE AIR BURNING MACHINES.....we live in hard times at the end of an earth generation when humans/mammals are turning into carnivores in attempts to absorb other animals "radiation".....a fruitless effort that only leads to death...
ALL CALORIE measurements is total B/S if the the subject includes HUMAN HEALTH, because 99% chance the food that was burned was not a human food in the first place and the same scientist have zero clue how humans have life and even more clueless about health.
I estimate 90% of everything ever teached in a college is anti-human / anti life and threatening earth's ability to support life to humans....when humans die, they are going to learn just how much they wasted their precious time on earth...
Just a passing opinion,probably all crap, but most all written on the internet and school books is just that, a bunch of crap that is subject to change by every human that reads it.
