Hoaxbusters in 250 minutes

Be the 1st to vote.

I had to wait until almost the very end of this epic audio to hear my name and site being complimented or disparaged (it’s not easy to decode doublespeak).

I thought back in the beginning of my research that Chris and Markus had a good radio chemistry: Markus kept the conversation going and Chris kept Markus’ dogmatism in check.

Dig through the middle for discussion (the stuff I overtalk about apparently). Towards the end there’s talk about suicidal fakeologists.

Here’s some salty talk for Markus: www.thestar.com/news/gta/2014/…

    Markus point about increasing salt intake is correct. I like to use unrefined salt like Pink Himalayan Salt. Only 19 bucks for 5 pounds at Saltworks.com.
    Interesting how the article cited below states that 16 grams per day of salt was once the army rations for soldiers.

    “Salt is the raw ingredient used by the parietal cells lining the stomach to produce hydrochloric acid (a key component of gastric fluid) and sodium bicarbonate, the compound which maintains alkalinity in the bodily fluids. To produce 3 litres of gastric fluid per day with a pH of 1, 17gms of salt are processed by the parietal cells. Perhaps not coincidentally, the salt ration in the US Army in WWII was 16gms of salt per day”.

    Sodium chloride intake forms hydrochloric acid for digestion and sodium bicarbonate for alkaline blood at ph7.4. The article cited below states that drinking too much water lowers salt concentration in the body. A condition called hyponatremia.

    “Another essential requirement of salt in living humans and animals, which is the by-product of the production of hydrochloric acid, is the production of sodium bicarbonate. Sodium bicarbonate in our bodies provides the alkalinity of the plasma “inside” the animal body. In humans, the various autonomous systems (which I shall call HAS hereafter) maintain the internal pH of the various plasmas between 7.35 and 7.45. Below or above this range means symptoms and disease. If blood pH moves too much below 6.8 or above 7.8, cells stop functioning and the patient dies. The ideal pH for blood is 7.4.
    The author has noted that Australian medical students are taught that “neutral” pH is 7.4, even though neutral pH is 7 by the definition of pH. The curious effect of this teaching is that many newly-minted doctors are completely unaware that the human body is alkaline, and often dismiss discussions of maintaining an alkaline system as flim-flam. The author has read many articles which discuss different parts of the body having different pH: e.g. the saliva is this, and the urine is that pH, etc. However, by thinking of the human/animal body topologically, it can be easily understood that internal bodily fluids are alkaline at pH 7.4″.

    Interesting that Markus brings up how Adam Curry doesn’t sound like himself and even plays a clip, at 1:50, one minute and 50 seconds. Then Markus says how it does not SOUND like Adam but it IS Adam. Since Adam was ‘spot on’ in his responses, Markus summerizes, then it must be Adam.

    Kinda out of the blue. Could, perhaps, Markus want us to know that people can sound different in audio and still remain the same person?

    In light of recent events, hmmmmm.
