I was in line at the store and I heard a young lady say to her friend water, water is only important in the summer when you do that dehydrating thing. Her friend said, I think you are wrong, water is needed all year long that is why people get dry skin and constipated and have kidney and urinary problems. The friend said where did you ever hear that? Water is only important in the summer because you only sweat in the summer.
Now people that know me know that I am a born educator, and I like people to have the information they need to make better decisions with all, or at least a good amount of information to work with. So, again the non informed friend said where did you hear such crazy information? Her friend says I listen to a Naturopath on the air during the week, and I have for many years. My Mother introduced me to him, as she has been listening to him for over 20 years. He is very informed and shoots straight at the correct information, and does not sugar coat things or but into misinformation.
The friend replied, I do not believe anything on the radio, and then it happened, the words just fell out of my mouth... It is very obvious that you do not believe anything from books, Doctors journals, special reports, news or studies on health either. I shook the other ladies hand, and I thanked her for listening to my show. She said Jeff, I said yes nice to meet you. She replied did I get the information correct, I said yes, perfect.
Then I looked at the other one and I said are you seriously this uninformed, or is there a television camera somewhere in the area... And just like that she said we are on tv? I looked at my listener and said Happy Healthy New Year, and oh my good luck with this one! She gave me a hug, thanked me for all of the information, and as I walked away shaking my head like I was having a spasm, the other lady was still looking in every direction for a television camera or film crew.
