If you do enjoy Mercola's information/site/newsletter/etc, you do like his style and his practices.  

Dr. D'Adamo's site feels different because it is different.  The foundation is different.

Obviously we are Dr. D fans here.  
But truth is to be found other places.  I lean to one political party more than the other, but I see some truth in the other one.  So, even with medicine, I lean to alternative (which really should be traditional), but there are times for conventional medicine, like in emergency situations.
We can explore Mercola, but still be loyal to the BTD.
I do agree with his principles about getting more sunlight, for example, as I deal with a miserable dreary climate as I have most of my life.  He has affirmed what I have been feeling for years, that moderation in sunlight is OK.  There was such an emphasis on avoiding the sun after some years of too much.  He put into words what I felt.  His 'metabolic typing' seems similar to BTD.  he just doesn't recogmize it!  Ha!
I get his newsletter (e-mail) & it has many interesting things.  My main complaint is that it is too long & too often.  At least he repeats certain things so I can skip over certain things at times. I don't know how to communicate with him, but I would say to cool it on the frequency & length!
Enough of this!!!!

MrsT, I agree with Too long& too often.

When you get his newsletter go to unsuscribe and there is a choice of having those e-mails, 3 times a week, once a week or once a month.
I unsuscribed after the comment about diabetes, and not because I am fanatic follower of BTD, but because I didn't expect something like that from a qualified doctor.

Dr. D'Adamo's site feels different because it is different. The foundation is different.


So what if I do? Because of his "style and practices" more people are educated. I've never felt pressured to buy anything from him. I've bought more from Peter's website than him.

Sure, there is a LOT of marketing. I just get around it. If you don't like it, unsubscribe and don't ever visit his website again, but don't bash the guy because you don't like his style and practices. I don't bash my neighbor just because he does something that's not my style. To each his own, remember?

Look, he's misinformed about BTD. We should all have compassion for him and pray that one day he will see the truth. You can't shove the truth down his throat.

Speaking as a Christian, I'd rather pray for him than put him down, no matter what he does. I stand my ground, people.

Dr. D, this is what I meant by giving it a rest.

no comments.........


Lola,

I'm sorry but I believe you're taking that quote out of context.

The reader who left that comment, if you read the whole thing a little closer, was saying that by mass marketing, the message about health would reach a larger audience, therefore more people would be educated. Obviously more money is made this way, but that wasn't the point of that comment.

I know it is a reader who left the comment, SD........

it is precisely the comment that I am commenting on, in general, for all who think like this reader, and there are many who do, unfortunately.

This is the comment you quoted from the reader:

"We need as many good people as we can muster up to also become master marketers so their goodness can spread!"

I wasn't trying to tell you that it wasn't my quote. I KNOW it's the reader who left that comment.

I was just trying to explain to you that the comment you quoted has been taken out of context. And what I mean by taken out of context is that you are giving that comment a different meaning than what the author of that quote meant.

I'm not trying to argue with you here but to have some clarification.

there s something about master marketers and goodness I just can t digest........

have met a lot of people in my life, thinking only of becoming MMs, but are not interested in giving an example, all they re after is $........how sad is that?

there s no goodness from stepping on others........yet I believe in boomerangs or karma, or whatever you want to call it, always........

If all they are after is money and not to help and educate others, then yes, that is very sad. I agree with you.

The trick is to not let them take advantage of us! There will always be Mass Marketers with less than honorable intentions.

Aside from the whole issue with Dr. Mercola, I believe it is possible to mass market something in a good way, IF it's done with the TRUTH and with the intention of EDUCATION. That takes money, and there is nothing wrong with selling products in relation to the subject to fund the marketing and earn a profit. We must earn money to live somehow. That's the beauty of our country, capitalism. But only if it's done righteously, which unfortunately, is not very often.

about the diabetes thing.....anyone can get a high blood sugar reading if their diet has been a bit high in carbs and they are getting along in yrs, esp. if they have diabetes in the family....that doesn't mean he had diabetes!!! These things can be rectified with exercize and diet.....(I'm guessing Mercola was exagerrating due to a high blood sugar reading...) you could have a normal reading next day!

Listen folks,

I don't have the slightest problem with people taking the good from anywhere or anyone and leaving the rest behind.  Including the good from Joe Mercola.

I also try not to spend my free time looking for new ways to knock Joe Mercola. I've been on the receiving end of way too much of that myself, and the man who said that when you point a finger, three more point back at you is correct.
