Hearing: Violence Epidemic Linked to Bad Diet

Mark Davis, News 8 (Hartford), November 7, 2013

There’s been much research on the need for a healthy diet to avoid obesity and heart problems, but a Congressional field hearing in Hartford today heard that bad diet is also causing the epidemic of violence and shootings.

The latest research concludes that too many french fries and other heavily processed foods are contributing to the nation’s epidemic of violence.

“Junk foods make junkie minds,” said Capt. Joseph Hibbeln, National Institute of Health.

The field hearing heard that too much fast food, coupled with low consumption of fish or fish oil, is contributing to the epidemic of violence.

“When we look at fish consumption across countries, those countries that have the highest fish consumption have 30 fold lower homicide rates,” said Hibbeln.

Plus, the research also concludes that if this is not reversed, that 1,800 of the approximately 60,000 kids in first grade in Connecticut today will commit some kind of act of violence before they turn 21, all because of poor brain nutrition.

The violent trend can be traced over the past couple of decades to the increasing consumption of bad oil versus fish or fish oil.

[Editor’s Note: Hartford, Connecticut, is 43.4 percent Hispanic, 38.7 percent black, and 15.8 percent white according to the 2010 Census.]

    “When we look at fish consumption across countries, those countries that have the highest fish consumption have 30 fold lower homicide rates,” said Hibbeln.

    Anything but reality will do…

    • a multiracial individual

      Is the Somali diet not heavy on fish?

      • Oil Can Harry

        Thank you. The most violent place on earth has always been Sub-Saharan Africa where the traditional diet (at least until recent decades) involved fruit, vegetables, meat and fish.

        • skara_brae

          …and bushmeat.

        • Alucard_the_last

          You forgot blood, live insects and rotting meat.

          • gemjunior

            And don’t forget man-pig or as we say “human”….

          • And sometimes, each other.

          • Gereng

            From my time in Africa I know there were still laws on the books in Uganda stating that all meat sold in the marketplace had to have a patch of the skin remaining on the carcass as proof it wasn’t human.
            During Liberia’s recent civil war, cannibalism was rife. It has always been involved in politics in Liberia, where kidnapping of kids and consumption of their bits and pieces are believed to bring power to the consumer. This is still going on today

          • Anyone who would eat a chimpanzee or gorilla would very likely eat another human.

          • Gereng

            Not just ‘likely’ it is a dead certainty. Fact, in fact. The Liberians had eaten all their own monkeys by the 1980s and were relying on supplies from Sierra Leone where it was less favored.
            Two tribes in the area where my Peace Corps wife taught in a high school-were the XXX and ZZZ peoples. Each family in each tribe had a relationship with their special friend family in the other tribe. It was a reciprocal arrangement where each family would supply the other the cadaver of the recent dead. Each two families had their own place in the bush where the corpse would be laid. A person would visit the other family and tell them there was something for them. The body would disappear and it was assumed, eaten.

          • Laura Dilworth

            is that how aids started? people ate a rhesus monkey…

          • Gereng

            I think the Rhesus monkey is an Asian species…But the HIV disease African monkeys carry is so similar scientists believe it mutated to a form that was easily picked up by humans. How it made the jump from monkeys to man… I don’t want to go there….

          • Laura Dilworth

            bestiality?

          • Gereng

            It is Africa and a very strange species they are…

          • Laura Dilworth

            ahhh

          • Blue-eyed Devil

            And captured enemy tribesmen.

    • Jesse James

      They will have even lower homicide rates when those irradiated Pacific Ocean fish start killing off the worlds fish eaters.

      • Beetlejuice

        That will include lefties on the West Coast of the United States and Canada.

        • Sick of it

          You know as well as I do they will flood the rest of the country with their crazy population.

      • Laura Dilworth

        the subsaharan population is OFF THE CHARTS. it can’t be sustainable. anyways, it will explode throughout this century

        • Gereng

          You should read Prof Garret Hardin on Life Boat Ethics and the tragedy of the commons….

    • Erasmus

      Alaskan natives have a diet very high in fish, yet crime is still through the roof. How does that clown Hibbeln explain that?

      • Alucard_the_last

        By ignoring the truth.

      • Jefferson

        Alaska does not have a large number of Mestizos and Bantus. So who is committing the majority of the crimes in Alaska ? White people ? Eskimos ?

        • LaSantaHermandad

          Alaska has a large population whackos and a large alcohol problem. It seems that all the misfits couldn’t set down roots and just kept moving until they reached the extremities of the US and had nowhere else to go. California is another good example.

        • Erasmus

          Alaskan Indians, and not the ones you usually meet behind the counter of a convenience store.

        • Gereng

          Read my message above..

      • Blue-eyed Devil

        Aren’t a lot of Eskimos alcoholics?

      • Gereng

        That’s because it is a nonsense theory. Eskimos have a tradition of a high
        homicide rate. Which is kind of odd considering the sparse population and infrequent gatherings.

    • Jesse_from_Sweden

      Bet you that statistics can show that not only is fish oil good for lowering violence.
      But if you look at Europe, you will also see that eating pork is good for lowering violence and sex crimes.

      Or maybe it just has less to do with the diets themselves and more to do with the fact that different demographical groups have different diets.

      • Reverend Bacon

        I like that. Eating pork probably cures terrorism, too. Not so much for rape, at least stateside.

        Perhaps if we issued EBT cards that were only accepted for vegetables, we’d get less violence? Eventually, we would, because blacks wouldn’t breed as much if their reward for breeding was just broccoli stew.

        • Beetlejuice

          I misread your first line as “eating pork probably cures TOURISM.” Think brain worms…
          Certainly cured me of ever desiring to visit a Third World country.

        • Katherine McChesney

          Pork would insure that terrorist muslims are nowhere in the neighborhood.

  • Does this Hibbelin nitwit really imagine genetics can be completely discounted? How does this silly junk food excuse explain violent African behavior in Africa, where packaged, processed convenience foods are consumed much more rarely than in urban America?

    • Jesse James

      Michael for many progressives who have abandoned traditional religion or any religion you will notice that they have replaced the old religious based moral codes with strict dietary restrictions. Where once people strove to find the right way to live a moral life based on personal character and behavior, the progressive seeks to eat right. This theory is the perfect example of a progressive attempting to apply his faux religious strictures to a problem in a way that makes moral sense to him.

    • sbuffalonative

      Endless theories and excuses. They’re desperate to find new ones because the previous theories and excuses didn’t pan out. They have to keep making up new ones because they will never admit the truth. Just when you think they’ve run out of them, they come up with one that’s more absurd than the last.

    • negrolocaust

      towson students of baltimore county are being stabbed and robbed by
      groups of blacks 4 incidents last week alone all by blacks all against
      white college students so much so the county just formed a task force. i
      want to know why this site is not reporting it . the one student was
      stabbed multiple times in the chest and still cannot communicate. i know this group from amren speaks at towson. what is the problem.

    • Beetlejuice

      He knows the truth. He also knows what happened to James Watson when he spoke the truth. Hibbeln needs to support himself and his family even if he must lie to do so, which he so obviously does in this case.

      • Laura Dilworth

        who’s james watson?

        • QuinnTheEskimo9

          James Watson was a highly respected scientist who won a Nobel Prize in 1962 for co-discovering the structure of DNA.

          Later, he challenged the accepted PC-enforced tenet that blacks are equally intelligent as whites, “[I am] inherently gloomy about the prospect of Africa [because] all our social policies are based on the fact that their intelligence is the same as ours—whereas all the testing says not really.” Watson was right, of course, and everyone knew, it including those who denounced him.

          For this, he was denounced completely by the PC msm, lost his lab in Cold Springs and was forced into retirement.

          VDare has two very good articles by Steve Sailer explaining what happened: http://www [ ]vdare [ ]com/articles/reflecting-on-james-d-watson-why-the-truth-even-about-about-iq-differences-will-indeed-set-

          • Laura Dilworth

            thanks

          • Laura Dilworth

            i think he’s chancellor emeritus at cold springs now. he seems to still be active. i know he had to apologize and all.

          • Beloved Comrade

            No, he’s not. Cold Springs severed its 40-year connection with Watson who retired shortly after he was suspended from there.

            “In January 2007, Watson accepted the invitation of Leonor Beleza, president of the Champalimaud Foundation, to become the head of the foundation’s scientific council, an advisory organ. He will be in charge of selecting the remaining council members.”

            I don’t know what the Champalimaud Foundation is but that is where he is now, not at the prestigious Cold Springs Harbor Lab.

          • Laura Dilworth

            i think i read about it on wikipedia and watson’s website

  • So eating broiled fish instead of fried chicken will reduce inner-city violence?

    • Jack Burton

      They don’t realize how angry blacks get if they don’t get fried chicken!

      /watch?v=8pyW6w5B7Aw

      • Mergatroyd

        Or chicken McNuggets from 365 MacDonald’s. Blacks have called 911 when they think they’ve been shorted of nuggets, for them it IS an emergency. A non-emergency for them is letting a white person bleed out after they’ve assaulted him.

        • gemjunior

          LMAO, you said it. That is exactly how they think. They call 911 and request the fire department, who rush to the scene only to be informed “dat da lightbulb don’t be workin’ gnome sayin?

          • Beetlejuice

            In case anyone thinks this DIDN’T happen:

            “Florida Woman Calls 911 After McDonald’s Runs Out of McNuggets”

            www[ ]foxnews[ ]com/story/2009/03/04/florida-woman-calls-11-after-mcdonald-runs-out-mcnuggets/

            Blacks do this because for them there are no consequences for [what we whites see as ] stupid behavior. Old whitey is going to pick up the bill for the 911 call AND the chicken McNuggets so why not call 911 if you don’t get your way.

          • Katherine McChesney

            Blacks are an ignorant race of people.

          • Beloved Comrade

            A criminal race too.

    • bilderbuster

      McD’s & other fast food crap my be ghettofare, but good Southern fried chicken is a classic meal.
      Yes, I like watermelon & collard greens too.

    • Laura Dilworth

      Blacks have more testosterone than other races. Testosterone is directly related to aggression. Hence, the high rate of young males incarcerated.

      • You are forgetting – or deliberately omitting – their obtuse stupidity, which also exceeds that of other hominid subspecies.

        • Laura Dilworth

          no, just mentioning another factor.

          • QuinnTheEskimo9

            It’s a combination of factors, not the least of which is a smaller brain than whites, especially smaller frontal lobes. Average IQ of blacks is around 80, that of whites 100. Blacks also have more psychopathic traits than whites, more violence, failure, less employment, more dysfunction. This is true in Africa and any other area of the world where blacks are found.

          • Laura Dilworth

    • Erasmus

      Yet, Pugg, those McDonald Land friends are a pretty white looking bunch to me, not a recognizably black character in the entire bunch.

      C’mon, where’s the diversity?

      • How ‘about their advertisements?

      • Beetlejuice

        Show white characters to keep white and his kids patronizing McDonald’s. Heavily donate and invest in blacks through 365 black to keep them quiet about the death knell of diversity. These guys aren’t dumb. Whitey pays, blacks benefit. There’s you diversity.

    French fries lead to violence….okay that provided this evening’s entertainment! This week I’ve also had lots of salt and caffeine and yet the only thing I’m killing is time.

    • Spartacus

      KILL IT WITH FIRE !

  • JohnEngelman

    I wish black ghetto thugs ate nothing but Twinkies, french fries, and Coke.

  • Bon, From the Land of Babble

    Well, which is it??

    In August, scientific studies showed that Global Warming caused a rise in violence:

    From a study published in Science via the BBC:

    Shifts in climate are strongly linked to increases in violence around the world, a study suggests.

    US scientists found that even small changes in temperature or rainfall correlated with a rise in assaults, rapes and murders, as well as group conflicts and war.

    Now junk food?

    Anything to excuse black violence. Watch for the government to jack up the prices of junk food — soon chips, soda, and lunch meat will become as valuable as Tide laundry detergent in the drug trade!!

    Southern California authorities say it’s a dirty business and a bizarre trend – drug users trading Tide detergent for crack.

    The Riverside Press-Enterprise says it’s a nationwide problem – people are stealing the popular but expensive detergent and trading it for marijuana and crack cocaine…it is being reported that some grocery stores are “losing $10,000 to $15,000 a month” as a result of Tide thefts.

    LOL, I can no longer keep up.

    The only thing the violent suffer from is a deficiency of lead.

    Bon

    • Stealing Tide? That’s nuts, not least because I’m allergic to the stuff.

      • Puggg

        Brand name liquid laundry detergent, especially Tide, is becoming a form of currency, or a medium of exchange, in the ghetto drug trade. Many smaller box retailers in or close to ghettos are starting to do some creative things to stop people from stealing Tide. Such as tying the bottles onto the shelves with metallic cords that are hard to cut, or attaching a transponder onto each bottle as if they were expensive electronics, that buzz off if you try to leave the store.

        • Pro_Whitey

          Or, in short, Tide is money!

          • Jesse James

            I wonder if this is also because it is a good barter item for a group of people that have a low cash group economy. This low cash situation is pronounced in ghetto areas where few people get real pay checks and get much of their income from various government programs. People who get EBT cards can buy the Tide and swap it for items that cant’ be purchased with the EBT card – illegal drugs. Plus Tide being a named brand is easily identifiable, has a long shelf life and is a good quality product that everyone can use, all factors that make a good barter item. I don’t know if that is it, maybe, or perhaps there is something else we are missing about the significance of Tide.

          • Puggg

            It goes more like this:

            Sho’latrisha is a heroin addict. LaKeisha has six young children by five men, all five of them are in prison, and she needs to wash her kids clothes. She’s got some money but just not enough to buy Tide at the store prices.

            Sho’latrisha sneaks out of Ghetto Dollar store with a cart full of big bottles of Tide. She sells them hot to every LaKeisha who needs one for half price, then Sho’latrisha can go buy her smack from the local pasta headed sagging dope dealer.

      aggressive white males have been taken out of the gene pool since around 300 a.d. in rome cuz of the death penalty, and a little later in great britain. also, the two world wars. stateless societies have rewarded aggressive males and their genes continued

    Hmmmm….then why is Appalachia so peaceful? I am not picking on the people of Appalachia. I admire them. I think they have been dealt an unfair deck of cards and are trying to do the best they can.

    • JohnEngelman

      Welcome back Courtney. I wish you posted more often.

  • CourtneyfromAlabama

    Black people have a very child like and simplistic approach to food. They like the things that we used to like from the kids’ menu as kids, while coloring with our crayons in a nice restaurant, while the adults talked….things like mac and cheese, french fries, fried chicken fingers. That stuff is fun to eat still at times, and I can be pretty guilty, but you also have to balance your diet out a little more than that most of the time. At least that is what most adults should be doing.

    • The logical extension of the NIH’s absurd “study” is a greatly-expanded “nanny state” which will control what everyone eats. Most blacks are simply not capable of making responsible diet and health decisions.

      • Jesse James

        They will get my guns and my fried chicken when they slip them out of my cold dead greasy fingers.

        • sbuffalonative

          I suspect there are many as yet undiscovered clauses in the ACA relating to the government increasing regulations on foods. I won’t be surprised if in a couple years they propose banning sugar sodas or other drinks and foods because research has proven them to be harmful. Watch for it. It’s coming.

      • sbuffalonative

        Clearly the solution to the problem of black violence (which after many years of adamant denials by the way, these researchers admits is true!) is to provide inner-city youths with fish oil supplements and open sushi bars in the hood. Problem solved!

  • Jack Burton

    It’s fallacious reasoning, correlation, not causation. Typical leftist BS.

    • Mergatroyd

      Unfortunately, that typical leftist nonsense is accepted by the government as gospel. Scientists must play along or end up like James Watson.

  • John Frum

    If they stopped eating fast food,how long before the violence leaves “they” system?

    • Beetlejuice

      Never. Violence is coded into their DNA, expressed when they don’t get their way, even about the tiniest thing.

    • QuinnTheEskimo9

      If their EBT cards are cut off how long before they start up the violence? WalMart was attacked recently when EBT cards flashed “error.” Didn’t take more than a few minutes. Imagine when the food cards are cut off for 24 hours. Hope they come down my street.

  • Spartacus

    “When we look at fish consumption across countries, those countries that
    have the highest fish consumption have 30 fold lower homicide rates,”

    ———————————————————————————————————————

    Yeah, I’m sure if the Japanese replaced fish with hamburgers and french fries, Tokyo would suddenly turn into Detroit. God, what imbeciles…

    • Jack Burton

      The real reason is their poor planning and lack of impulse control is what contributes to both their poor diet and also their violent tendencies. All a good diet will do is make them healthier and able to have more endurance for their violent tendencies, LOL. I’d rather have the criminals fat and out of shape.

    • Notice also that Hartford is right on the Connecticut River and not far from the Atlantic coast. One would imagine that frozen and fresh fish would be inexpensive there.

    • Jefferson

      Japanese sumo wrestlers are all obese due to their poor diet, but I doubt very much they are out there robbing, raping, and killing when they are not busy wrestling.

      I wonder how liberal would explain that ?

      • Mergatroyd

        Most sumo wrestlers don’t live past the age of 45.

  • sbuffalonative

    Well, this solves the Chuck E. Cheese mystery.

  • Bob

    …and they criticize Zimmerman for gunning down the obviously junk food crazed skittles kid? This story is hilarious.

  • Greg Thomas

    These multicult idiots will go to the ends of the earth to make excuses for their beloved diversity. It’s race stupid!

  • Didn’t Dan White use a “junk food defense” successfully in court after he killed San Francisco politician Harvey Milk?

  • Greg Thomas

    Looks like Hartford, Connecticut has a mexican problem.

  • Alexandra1973

    I would think that junk food would exacerbate any violent tendencies.

    If my younger sister has too much sugar she gets violent.

    If I have aspartame I need psych meds, let’s put it that way.

    But junk is not entirely to blame here.

    • Mergatroyd

      Stop with the aspartame and all other chemical sweeteners. Aspartame turns to formaldehyde in the brain.

      • Alexandra1973

        I have. I will not buy anything with artificial sweeteners. Not even Splenda.

        • Beetlejuice

          Good. Now cut sugar out of your diet too. It should be looked at as a poison.

      • It breaks down into phelalananine, which is then turned into L-tyrosine in mammals and then dopamine, noradrenaline and ephinephrine, so aspartame would thus be mood-altering. I’m suprised the FDA hasn’t given aspartame a “Schedule-2” classification.

        There may be some side-products like formaldehyde.

        • Sick of it

          The government isn’t fond of people in their right minds these days, so they may be okay with it.

  • Sick of it

    Well this is so much bunk, considering that whites on junk food have been committing fewer violent crimes over time whereas blacks on junk food have been committing more violent crimes over time, making race a more pertinent factor in these events.

    • Daniel Schmuhl

      Black people and poor people in general due tend to eat more junk though, but your right how the effect seems almost absent from whites.

      • Mergatroyd

        There’s an easy excuse for that. Black ghettoes are food deserts, don’t you know and that’s ALL blacks can buy, 40 ozers., cheetos, fried pork rinds, packaged Twinkie-type pastries. Blacks have no access to fresh fruits and vegetables.
        It’s all the fault of the big supermarkets that pulled out after they were ripped apart in black riots and refused to rebuilt.
        The government must mandate oversight of the large supermarket chains and demand that they locate in the heart of Trenton, NJ, inner city Philly, East STL, Camden NJ, as a condition of doing business elsewhere. They also much show that they have met new EEOC guidlines of 40% black employees and management.

        Government knows best. Just ask John Engelman.

        • Katherine McChesney

          Blacks have access to fresh fruits and vegetables. They can obtain them if they wish. The thing is that they don’t want to eat healthily. They just want any greasy food and they want it fast. They’re probably too lazy to prepare a decent meal.

  • MBlanc46

    They’re really getting desperate. Find something, anything, other than race.

    • CoweringCoward

      Does seem to be the primary objective, doesn’t it?

      • Mergatroyd

        Why are you using such a lame handle?

  • Daniel Schmuhl

    This excuse is not new:

    “Twinkie defense” is a derisive label for an improbable legal defense. It is not a recognized legal defense in jurisprudence, but a catchall term coined by reporters during their coverage of the trial of defendant Dan White for the murders of San Francisco city supervisor Harvey Milk and mayor George Moscone. White’s defense was that he suffered diminished capacity as a result of his depression.

    Correlation doesn’t equal causation, you would think that smart people would have that figured out by now. They eat a lot of fish in Scandinavia but the low levels of violence there probably has very little to do with diet.

  • Jesse James

    That is because places like McDonalds are extremely unpleasant for whites to visit in many parts of the country because they are staffed with mostly minorities and the patrons are often fractious minorities. Also some of us refuse to frequent McDonalds in particular because of their 365 black campaign.

    • Jefferson

      Chick-Fil-A is the only fast food chain in America that hires a lot of young attractive White females to work in their restaurants.

      • Jesse James

        They are also very efficient, polite, helpful and overall pleasant to be around.

        • Erasmus

          In addition to being “gay unfriendly” still more reasons for the left to hate them.

      • Mergatroyd

        In-n-out, a small chain in California employes white workers. Maybe that’s why there is always a long line out the door and the line at the drive-thu window goes out the parking lot and down the street. All are super busy at all times but are kept clean and efficient. Food is great but greasy.

        • Katherine McChesney

          The best burger I’ve ever had. And reasonably priced, also.

          • I can make a better one. I use 80-20 ground chuck from Wal Mart and knead a mixture of dry red wine, flour and either teriyaki sauce or bulgoki sauce into the meat. I grill the resulting patties over charcoal on the hibachi, using dry brush from the previous year’s tomato and pepper plants on the coals to add some more flavor.

            I toast the buns. The lettuce is the packaged “herb mix” from Wal Mart. I sometimes wok-fry sliced mushrooms in olive oil and use them along with chunky bleu cheese dressing under the bun.

            Slow food is glorious, and the more home-grown vegetables I can work into a dish, the better I feel.

    —A White Man who wants to bomb brown people in brown countries is a “conservative.”

    —A White Man who wants to import millions of brown people to white countries so they can do his laundry is a “progressive.”

    —A White Man who simply wants nothing to do with non-whites is a “supremacist.”

    Pass the word along folks!

    After a long day of twerking, I sometimes oink out on junk food in whatever hotel I’m staying at if I’m on the road. The last thing I want after eating a bucket of KFC is to get physically active. Being violent takes some serious energy, even more than twerking. Man, I usually need a nap after time with the Colonel!

    I just don’t see how food coma = higher incidence of violence. Maybe it’s a delayed effect. Like, you know, you eat a bucket of KFC and 12 hours later, certain chemical compounds have formed that drive you into rampage mode.

    In some ways, this story reminds me of the Bantu conspiracy theories re: AIDs and crack cocaine. Supposedly, the two were introduced by the CIA into inner cities in order to reduce the Bantu population. This article sounds somewhat like it: Just think, what do inner city neighborhoods all have in common? Church’s Fried Chicken, KFC, Bojangles… I think we can all see the pattern here. We know that whitey is putting these evil dens of (food) iniquity in certain area in order to make the Bantu look bad.

    CIA? Thy name is junk food.

        Legalized abortion accomplished in the black community what crack cocaine couldn’t, i.e., reduction in black numbers and a falling crime rate as a result. Win-Win.

      • Katherine McChesney

        More blame from blacks. Truth is they have no respect for life.

    • You forgot the liquor stores and all the cheap handguns the CIA is dumping in black neighborhoods, so now we have AIDS, crack, junk food, booze and guns. Quite a repertoire from an agency that is prohibited from domestic operations!

      I wish the CIA would dump all that booze in my neighborhood instead; I could have a pretty good time here. If they’re taking requests, I’d like three boxes of Vella “crisp white” wine, three bottles of sake (any brand) and a case of Strongbow hard cider.

  • WR_the_realist

    Junk food will make you fat but it’s absurd to say it’s causing an epidemic of violence. The claim that a bad diet causes violence is junk science at its finest.

    • Mergatroyd

      Junk science has replace REAL science in the current cultural climate. Things such as blacks and whites being equal in all ways is accepted as truth, global warming, the “Twinkies made me do it” defense, Jews don’t control the media. All accepted as gospel whose questioning means severe consequences.
      Torquemada lives and sits in the White House.

    • Calling this “junk science” is an insult to junk. It’s excuse-mongering political advocacy by someone dumb enough to think the rest of the nation is as idiotic as he is.

    I blame the twinkies. And the tennis shoes that kept telling me to “just do it.”

  • ““When we look at fish consumption across countries, those countries that have the highest fish consumption have 30 fold lower homicide rates,” said Hibbeln.”

    ——————–
    [sarcasm]

    It’s not just the fish consumption. Remember, the native populations of those countries almost always have epicanthic eyelid folds, and they’re shorter than Europeans as well. So it’s really hard to understand how much weight to give to the various criteria I just cited. Not only that, they tend to speak Asian languages, a statistical variable that was not corrected for.

    What’s needed here is more study. If someone will give me a grant of a million dollars I promise to try do give a definitive answer … and if I can’t, further study grants may be advisable.

    • If I remember correctly, the island chain off west Africa that includes Sao Thome and Principe is all volcanic, and extends with a chain of additional volcanoes with Mount Cameroon on the coast, and then farther northeast into the interior.

        There’s a city called Goma in the DRC that’s in constant danger of being overrun by lava. There was a seismological station there and a warning system, but the station was looted in the wars and no one kept up the warning system (colored cards) if I’m remembering right.

        • I believe that is a different volcanic chain, the result of the “unzipping” of Africa along the Great Rift Valley. Some this formation consists of deep lakes and form a scar on the earth that also forms the Red Sea and Dead Sea.

    It all started with C.Everett Koop. Public Health Officials wearing uniforms don’t look like public health officers or physicians, they look like the Good Humor Man.

    • Since their level of professionalism has obviously plummeted, perhaps goofy uniforms are appropriate. In fact, I would go father and say that clown shoes should be mandatory.

    That defense should work in court next time you murder someone. The Twinkie defense worked for Dan White whose charges were reduced to manslaughter. He served five years for killing the mayor of San Francisco and gay icon and martyr Harvey Milk.

    ‘Junk foods make junkie minds,’ said Capt. Joseph Hibbeln, National Institute of Health.

    I actually thought that I had heard every conceivable excuse for black violence, but I admit, I’m gonna have to add this one to my ‘list.’

    “Excuse me Capt. Stupid of the NIH. May I whisper a secret in your ear? The cause of black violence is… wait for it… BLACKS.”

    • NoMosqueHere

      Junk food was made to order for blacks. They enjoy the immediate taste sensations it provides, rather than more wholesome or sophisticated food choices.

          They eat on the run; they eat fast. A life of stealin, rapin, robberyin, beatin, and muggin, doesn’t permit a lifestyle of fine dining.

      • Eating processed, packaged crud is also less work-intensive than cooking from fresh ingredients. It costs much less to do some real cooking, but if whites have to work to pay taxes to fund the food stamp program, they simply don’t care. Even when the food in question is something easy to make, their laziness reigns supreme.

        Most of them don’t love the process of preparing a good meal for its own sake or take any pride in it. We read last year about a shooting death that resulted from a quarrel over which groid made the better Kool-Ade. White chile cooks on the other hand will politely disagree over how long one should soak the beans and whether the beans should be soaked in beer.

        I produced a mussels dish – an eclade des moules – I remembered from a 1970 childhood visit to La Rochelle in Normandy. My mother was astonished I could do this 40 years later, as I was four when we had that lunch. I was delighted it made her so happy. Part of my love of cooking from scratch is the joy it produces in friends and family. The blacks who engage in “Polar Bear Hunting” beat-downs and gang-rapes don’t think this way, even when it comes to food.

    CFA doesn’t really put its stores in the ghetto. From what I’ve noticed, it mainly centers in middle to upper middle class white non-leftist parts of town.

    A couple years ago I was reading an article on another site and came across a civil back and forth between two people commenting, one of which was Matt Parrott. I remember copying part of his response to a question the other guy asked because it made me laugh, but also brutally honest. The part about poor nutrition as the cause of black disfunction in this article reminded me of it.

    Q: “Are blacks less motivated to achieve what American culture upholds as its goals? Are they, in fact, inherently lazy or mentally disadvantaged?”

    A: “Of course Black Americans are less intelligent, with an average IQ of 85. The research on this is conclusive. There are plenty of bright Black folks in America, but the genetic gulf between White and Black Americans in cognitive ability can never and will never be bridged by educational enrichment, nutritional improvement, or anything else short of some sort of a Rise of the Planet of the Apes-style genetic miracle.”

    When I was a kid everyone thought blacks smelled funny because of all the fish they ate. In the warm weather you’d see them fishing in the creeks. Catfish and Sunnies were the favorites as I recall. Maybe they are even more badly behaved now because of SNAP since they don’t have to fish?

      “We interbiewed LaQuanatalashia Washington, one of Mr *******’s – um… er… N’Neshawntavious’s baby mommas, ans she explained ‘We gots ta be haben dat fish. My baby be starben on all dat pizza! Dis be bein’ what a food desert looks likes. Some creepy cracka best be go catch me some fish!”

  • By contrast, I have been home from federal prison for ten years and off supervision for seven. This may be because I eat my veggies and lots of seafood, though steamed shellfish with pasta or rice are more to my taste (I make plenty of good sauces for those) and drink plenty of green tea. On the other hand, it could be that my case was exceptional, that I’m older, starting to slow down a little and have a family, which keeps me home in the evenings… and/or also that I’m 13/16 white.

    Too many variables here, but while you and I know what things like “causality”, “coincidence” and “second- and third-order effects” are, Mr. Hibbeln clearly does not.

    The evil in the mind of man is total and who can know it? Food is just fuel and the mind goes on with its evil purposes. Note to idiots on panel.

  • Those EBT-card/food-stamp tax-funded dinners don’t count, because their mothers get to choose the food and then prepare it. I grew up on good food, but some of the “baby mommas” probably think mac & cheese is a good dietary staple, with Pepsi and a side of potato chips. My mother is an excellent cook, and at age 47, I have only recently surpassed her.

    On the other hand, those “free” school lunches and “breffastes” are at least theoretically nutritious, assuming the NAM brats know to eat vegetables and not throw them at each other. The foodstuffs all come from the US Department of Agriculture. My only complaint was that the vegetables were always canned and then steamed until they were tasteless. With enough pepper on them, they’re OK.

    This will be studied and proven “factual” to create more taxes and government control. The left has used minorities in so many various ways to get to their goals. Blacks have essentially been gold for the liberal/communist agenda. Their government dependence is essential in the building of our new world order and they among all are willing to go along with it. They have been used to destroy our constitution as they call our founding fathers “racist”. They have passed Affirmative Action laws to lower our overall intelligence and create animosity among races. They have used “racist” language to open our borders to crime, welfare, and loss of American patriotism. Don’t forget the “cornerstone” to communism, their utilization to form the Affordable Heath Care Act. The list goes on and on.
