DCUK How to do a deal with big pharma and play the misinformation game !

A repost but just as relevant today in light of more thread locking, post deletion and banning and threatening of low carbers over the past week or so.

"Certainly low carb is popular among the members, I think to some extent we all eat below the RDA of carbs so in effect do low-carb, whether that's eating 30, 50, 100, 150 or 200g of carbs a day, but I do think your doing the best thing by finding your own way at low-carbing as we all have different tastes. Posted here by Noblehead who else ?"

Who believes a low carb diet is 100,150 or 200 grams a day other than the likes of Noblehead ?

A member on the same thread looking to lose more weight.

"I think it's fair to say that whilst I aim for LCHF, I don't always get it right. Some days I have more carbs than I'd have liked (but never normally above 150g unless it's a special occasion)"

What Noblehead was saying a few years ago re weght loss.

"Noblehead September 4th, 2009, 12:05 pm deleted by Noblehead September 11th, 2012, 5:20 pm as posted here.

"I have seen dieticians, read books, spoke to my diabetic care team, and none have offered any constructive advice on controlling weight. Reading this forum has been helpful, and reading other peoples experiences in controlling their diabetes and improving Hba1c's, has been inspirational !

I can't recollect at any time been given advice on reducing carbs to control weight. I have always been told to eat plenty of carbs at every meal, together with the usual meat and veg. Once I was told that a bowl of cereal for breakfast was insufficient, and should include 2 slices of toast also. Looking back I can now see how flawed this advice/information has been"

As stated above Noblehead deleted much of his own post years later once his hypocrisy and skulduggery was posted on this blog. Full story here.

The $64000 dollar question, why has Noblehead spent years spreading misinformation and posting negative comments re low carb ? when he once thanked low carbers for helping him to lose weight and other issues. The Lard works in mysteries ways, but Noblehead is something else. Is he on someone's payroll ? Is he trying to assist the DCUK management do a deal or flog the forum off to big pharma ? as reported here.

From Barry Summers Director at Diabetes Digital Media Limited -
"The aim of our business is to improve the quality of life to our online viewers, by providing access to high quality tools and information and education delivered via multiple channels via laptop, tablet and mobile applications.

We are interested to hear from investors, M&A groups, strategic partners, health insurance or pharmaceutical companies who have an interest in improving outcomes in the management and control of diabetes throughout the world. An ideal turn key beyond the pill distribution channel"

BTW The sales manager of DCUK done a Noblehead and deleted the big pharma spiel deal, when yet again we reported it here. As most clued up diabetics know, low carb usually results in no or minimal meds for a type two diabetic and much reduced medication for a type one diabetic. Big pharma has no interest in low carbers and even less I suspect in a forum where almost all the good news and success stories come about by low carbing. And for true low carbing, read 50 or less grams of carb per day, not Noblehead's misleading interpretation.

Hi xyzzy

I have stated for years I use around 50 carbs per day, too high for me to get into ketosis, around 30 works for me.

And as for the paranoia, I remember when you and all your "board members" accused me of paranoia when I talked about the $billions in fines being paid by big pharma and they were not to be trusted.

Anyway, chuffed you're still a regular reader of our blog, I am sure you have learned a great deal by coming over here. Keep dropping in, it's not all wind ups and agro, check out all the posts to good info and great low carb recipe ideas.

BTW You seem to be spending so much time concerned for that lying weasel Nobhead these days, please tell me he is not another one of your sons.

Have a good weekend.

So this is the same big pharma who've recently pulled out all the stops and produced an Ebola vaccine. If they were so evil why would they do that? There's no real profit in it as despite it's kill rate its very unlikely to spread in rich countries who could afford to pay.

Like I said at the time if you have that much problem with big pharma then protest by stopping using it products otherwise dont you think its being a hypocrite. I object to testing cosmetics on animals and have for decades avoided cosmetic companies who do so.

Isn't there a difference between being totally paranoid about big pharma and just recognising they're just companies who want to make money like any other company. Like many things the reality is they are a necessary evil.

If you had read my original post about Noblehead and his pump quest more carefully you would see my comment was simply stating that I thought it would be good if anyone who wanted a pump in this country could get one just as it is the case in other countries. I wish anyone who is trying to get one success.

As for me "having a go" you bloody well started it on the other thread so stop you're whining ...

... and etym had far more members than your forum so ner ner ...

... oh and at 50g you'll be in partial ketosis so your pee sticks will be a girly pink unlike boros manly purple ...

See yer around xx

Large companies do not necessarily have to be evil, but when you sell drugs that you know do not work and you know they are harming people that is evil. Check out Avandia and Actos to name but two horror stories.

Never forget xyzzy it's only business. BTW are you in the pharma business?
