What can Spirulina (pond scum) do for your health?
Nutridiot –Short Form of “Nutritional Idiot”
Noun – A person who is foolish or stupid regarding the subject of nutrition.A person who offers poor nutritional advice. A person(s) who mistakes junk for nutritional foods.
Note: First introduced in 2013 by Dr. Bob McCauley as a response to those who refused to recognize that certain algae are amongst the healthiest foods we can consume.
The world is full of Nutridiots, the nutritionally challenged who run around misinforming us as to what foods are healthy and what foods are not. Dr. Robert O. Young, M.S., Shave and Grooming Made Simple., Ph.D. is right on some things, but a Nutridiot when it comes to the subject of algae.
He calls algae pond scum, along with nearly every follower of Ann Wigmore including the folks at the Creative Health Institute and Hippocrates in Florida.
I happen to think that chlorella and spirulina are what most vegetarians and vegans should be using for their protein since they are 60% protein, and have the broadest array of nutrients of any whole foods.
Spirulina is an extremely pure food, 95% digestible, extremely high in the Vitamin B-complex, iron, calcium and essential fatty acids such as Gamma Linolenic Acid (GLA), which is excellent for the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis or bursitis. Spirulina is an excellent food to consume before a workout because of the explosive energy it provides to the body.
In conclusion, in short, spirulina is one of the two most powerful foods on earth and it should NOT be referred to as POND SCUM. That is, unless you want to be known as a Nutridiot. 🙂
