    Eating hot cross buns will fry your brain

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Does the stupidity ever end, now we have this "anti aging specialist" whatever that is, claiming the gluten in the buns is poisonous.

    It also happens he's an author of books on the subject, why am I not surprised.

    Another quack beating his own drum, or should I say feathering his own nest.

    Anti-ageing doctor claims hot cross buns 'set us up for dementia'

    Must be something. I for one am glad that we know so can avoid them and not have to worry about dementia.

    You know when his statement begins with "Research shows...." without citing any sources of said "research" that it shouldn't be taken seriously.

    Research to be released late in November will show that Advent Calendar chocolate will have the same effect.

    Where this all falls apart is that the increase in dementia isn't at all correlated with an increase in gluten consumption.

    Sugar is a different story and a link there could be a possibility... I think it's good to keep an open mind, but (to quote Tim Minchin quoting someone else) "if you open your mind too much your brain will fall out".

    Either way there's some merit to what he says about sugar and fat, but hey, that's true year round so why pick on Easter. Oh, that's right, it's an easy headline and free publicity for his scribblings...

    If we took every specialist and experts advice we'd all be living in a vacuum sealed room living off a drip (not cold drip either ).

    My very hot coffee, charcoal smoked bacon, hot crossed buns and Easter eggs await me!

    Well, if we didn't listen to the experts we'd still believe smoking was a healthy activity...

    Not necessarily... Experts say a healthy immune system requires exposure to pathogens ;-)

    I was about to say that the toxins in the tobacco smoke aren't pathogens, but then remembered that there's a broader definition for pathogen that means basically "anything harmful," not necessarily microorganisms.

    But I suspect it's only in the narrower sense that exposure is important for immune function. Toxins in isolation are just plain harmful.

    I also suspect I may be over-analysing what was probably a fairly light-hearted comment
