Take calcium pills, take calcium pills, take calcium pills! That is all I hear from my husband, my doctor and all the scientists. I am a small, Asian woman- so take calcium pill, take calcium pills, take calcium pills. Have you ever seen those things? They’re HUGE! I gag every time, tears squeezing from my bulging eyes as the pill inevitably gets stuck in my throat. I wash it down with a huge glass of milk- cause, you know, it has CALCIUM! Last year, I put my foot down. I told my husband, “If evolution makes us just as we should be, then WHY should I have to swallow a big pill to be healthy? I’ll just stick to milk, thank you!
Look, I respect the science field. But lately, especially concerning the ‘science’ of evolution, I have become skeptical of many scientist’s motives. Remember, every pill they tell you take benefits a pharmaceutical company. It is good to be skeptical of all science studies before we blithely jump on the band wagon. Look to see who funded the study and which company will make money.
Today, my ire has turned to a smug sense of, “I told ja so!”. ‘Cause now the ‘scientists’ say too much calcium is BAD for you! Yeaaaa! So no more pills, ladies. Be natural. Exercise, eat right (organically if possible), be happy (love God), and you will be just as healthy as can be. (that is, until all that mercury from the CFL bulbs seep into the groundwater and starts to mutate our cells- but that is another topic).
