Regarding, "A final point I would like to make is that by actually walking from the proposed site for the men’s residential facility to the park or neighborhoods, you realize that it takes a good 10 to 15 minute walk through woods, down the church driveway, and down long sidewalks to reach your destination."
It takes the average person 10 to 15 minutes to walk 500 feet (170 steps) downhill to the park? In fact, the park is CLOSER than the bus stop. Please check your facts.
Regarding, "There have been concerns expressed about “bunching” social service programs, but if instead we intentionally spread services out all over the community, we would only be adding to the challenges faced by those needing the services."
The homeless men need to be in the same 1/10th of a mile as the drug detox/rehab facility and the women's shelter and public housing? The proposed facility includes a medical clinic and no other medical facilities are nearby. The only nearby "related" social service is DSS. The other nearby social services do not benefit the residents of the mens homeless shelter. This is a specious argument.
The thing is - The Weston A Price Foundation is a very bad group. People think that just because it's a "non-profit" (who funds their studies anyway?), it cares about the people or real science. I heard that the old director (whoever Mercola took place of) died from a stroke at the age of 42. If the claims drawn by the Weston A Price Foundation are true - about a high animal fat/protein diet - why did their old director die so young??? Could it be that their views on cholesterol are VERY stupid?
I also don't like the Weston A Price Foundation because they write pseudoscience papers against soybeans... All of their studies are done on rats (human beings are not rats) and they do insane things like extract the phytoestrogen from the beans in high concentrations and they feed rats that only. However - if you notice some of the studies - the "control" group of rats were receiving normal rat food - which includes soy beans (and they lived healthy and long).
I had a great idea - why doesn't the Weston A Price Foundation take all 59 hormones from their raw milk - extract them, and test them on rats or themselves - I mean, if they know milk hormones are so safe, they shouldn't have a problem injesting them themselves. Then we might see which is worse - soybeans or milk.
The Weston A Price Foundation does not have any valid human studies. There is nothing on pubmed or NIH that supports their claims and they are warned by the FDA to stop their claims over and over again.
We are apes - apes do not live on 80% animal protein/fat (more like 10% in the form of insects mostly). I'm sure if we fed chimps and banobas a diet like this - they would die off very quickly. Also - I think it is laughable that Weston A Price Foundation would try and mimic a diet that is impossible to follow in this nation or western society. Cows/pigs/chickens etc raised on farms is not the same thing as eating wild, lean animals. Tribal people probably NEVER ate dairy products during this time (the time when weston a price did his study in Africa) - in fact - 90% of all Africans are lactose intolerant.
