Comment Posting

Comments are most welcomed on, and encouraged because you, the reader, are such an important part of what makes our online community so unique. We are committed to keeping this website as a place for open and respectful debate. There are a few things I do not allow, as well as instances when comments may be edited or even deleted. All comments are subject to these terms of service. Please read our Disclaimer, Terms of Service, Privacy Policy, and Affiliate Disclosure before leaving a comment, as they apply to all content on this website, including anything you post in the comments.  Your acceptance of these policies will be indicated by visiting or leaving a comment.

Good, Bad and Ugly Comments

All comments posted that are rude, contain profanity, or that contain personal attacks will be deleted in a blink. When you take part in a discussion about one of our articles or recipes, you are essentially taking part in a discussion about health in a virtual room full of people. It’s like you’re in my clinic, so please be respectful. I’ve seen people from an incredible range of backgrounds and have learned to be accepting of many lifestyles, opinions and beliefs.

If you post comments that include personal attacks, name-calling, racist or anti-religious sentiments, political rants, insulting others, or blatantly promoting your product or services, I will kindly ask you to leave the room. Otherwise, I am delighted to have you here and always enjoy pleasant conversation with like-minded people.

Good Comments

We love you guys and always encourage open discussion, including any disagreements or differing opinions, in the comment section.Really good comments are grounded in science AND common sense, less in conspiracy theories, they can even include links to peer reviewed sources. Good comments can also relate to personal experiences. Debate needs to be a civil and respectful exchange, and avoids commentary about others’ diets, lifestyles, beliefs or opinions. Good also means not discussing religious or political topics, these are not relevant to this website and are often cause heated and inflamed discussion. If you want to make such comments, please go somewhere else like Reddit.

The Bad

We may become worried about you. The bad utilises generalisations, assumptions, infotainment sources, no sources, or complaints without specifics about agenda, bias, or funding. At best, such adverse comments give rise to a very weak basis for discussion. Bad comments can also include entirely off-topic discussion.
