“No, a lot of us distrust and even despise it. I wouldn't have ever invested EVER except when you have a 401K with an employer you don't get to not invest it.

But when you read this "Treasury bonds, once indisputably seen as the safest security in the world, are now rated lower than bonds issued by countries such as Britain, Germany, France or Canada.", then you realize that investing, for most people, has become a joke.

Our 401K which halved when the dot.com bubble burst, then took another nose dive in 2008, loses every month; we are withdrawing the funds while we still have some. Everything we have is in our Credit Union savings account. That's where it's staying.

“What do you mean "why I developed them"? I'm curious to know the causes of these things! I am gluten intolerant and lactose intolerant, sometimes I think everyone is both of these things to a degree, but if there is a better answer, I'm all ears! :)”

“I've read a few places that there is a strong link between gluten intolerance/allergy and dairy intolerance (which is related more to casein than lactose). Might be worth looking into.”

“Thanks! That is really good to know, because I had tortilla chips the other night and I suspected that they might have had some gluten in them, though they are corn based. Now it might be the corn? Eek -- I don't eat many corn products I think probably because subconsciously I am concerned about the farm subsidies and big ag going corn crazy and not growing any diversity. Brown rice pasta is great!

I actually just bought corn tortillas, so I will watch for any problem, thanks!

I know there is some research that says the paleo diet is good because we are not able to properly digest ANY grains. With the corn, now it makes me wonder if that is the case. I know someone who says he has way more energy and doesn't get sick often since he has gone on the paleo diet. My problem is that I'm a vegetarian, so I don't know how I could give up my soy products!”

“I am gluten intolerant and I have to say that I disagree that it is suspect on anthropological grounds. Wheat is filling, and the reactions to it can be somewhat severe, but when compared to something like lactose intolerance it is not the same. With lactose intolerance one feels an immediate discomfort, while with gluten, it is not always immediate, not always as sharp of a pain, but over time that dull pain can add up and make one feel generally not well but not necessarily be able to pin point what is wrong.

Also, there are numerous things in our western diet today that make us feel sick as well, yet people still eat it. If you have done any research on the western diet, you will know that we are still puzzled by what is good and bad for us and keep coming up with new scientific claims. I think our modern example with other things besides gluten proves that people will eat something if it is there and they are used to eating it, even if they suspect that it is making them ill, and also, many do not even suspect it though it may be happening to them.”

“It depends on the individual and how long one has been sick. Before I was diagnosed, I had very quick, painful, severe reactions from gluten. Incredible bloating that would happen very fast. Very sharp stomach pain too. Sometimes, just a few minutes after eating. For me, lactose cased a much less severe reaction: a dull stomach ache that came on about an hour after eating. Many Celiacs also cannot tolerate dairy, and what can seem to be a lactose intolerance problem, could actually be an allergy to casein (the protein in dairy). This can produce a very bad reaction.”

“yeah, it is seriously totally different now. I took the SATs 4 years ago, and we were preparing for months. It is such a disgusting display of privilege, because of course we could afford it, but those who can't? Well, unless you're just exceptionally smart, your scores pale in comparison.”

“I think the additional point of the article is that PRIVATE schools are doing away with this as their curriculum is already geared toward innate success and IVY league schools (where many private school grads attend) don't necessarily give full credit for it.”
