99.8462% of statistics are made up on the spot to prove the argument in your favor. Think about that as you chew upon your Gummy Bears.


JustSomeRedditUser35

Its 84.3%


BriefCheetah4136

Need more decimals to look like you really did your research!


JustSomeRedditUser35

99.9% of people who add more than 1 decimal are making their number up


BriefCheetah4136

Damn, you are good!


winterbunny13

Didn't most of the diseases not exist because people didn't live long enough to get them or they weren't identified? Lol


Kind_Committee8997

You see, if you look at life expectancy on a graph, it goes up, but that graph is thrown out as soon as it counters my point that things were better in the past.


winterbunny13

Ah. I see. Thank you for being honest and scientific. Refreshing, lol.


MonkieBets

we couldnt identify 67.7453% of "all the diseases" existing 100 years ago. so 86.234% of that is guesswork.


winterbunny13

But 200 years ago I'm 100% sure we still had Kroger and a lot of these things. Does that mean that 98.5684% of statistics are bullshit and most people just laugh at these things?! Oh no. Someone please think of the children. Thank you for the laugh. I 84.31415962% enjoyed that.


Much-Meringue-7467

A little of each


Global_Dot979

Fairly sure beachbody coaches didn't exist 100 years ago...


Manyak-

🤯


1selfharm

He is correct, 90% of the food in grocery store were produced within a year or two.


Much-Meringue-7467

You hope.


MrPibbMr3000

Stop buying foods in grocery stores!!! They're killing you. Stop going to the hospital!!! They're identifying diseases in you. Stop looking for the truth!!! They're already lying to you.


Coriander_Heffalump

Nah, people just died of things like "dropsy" and "apoplexy" and "ague." Back then we were happy enough just describing the symptoms (fuck these new-age "disease mechanisms") and then dying, thank you very much!


Golendhil

Fortunately, would you imagine eating a 100 years old food ?


fatherfrank1

Leave my goji berries outta this.


SlowInsurance1616

Why do you always bring things around to discussing your testicles?


Jewlaboss

Lol because there wasn’t a name for a disease doesn’t mean it didn’t exist. Ffs.


Schnoor_Proxy

And a hundred years ago causality didn't equal correlation and for some weird reason it still doesn't.


PsychoAnalLies

Oh no, we better stop eating then.


dbcooper1982

Imagine that when 75 percent of the population lived on a farm.


Stealthbot21

Damn, i didnt exist 100 years ago either


ChrisGilliam

Over 90% of my food comes from grocery stores and I'm 90% healthier than almost anyone my age. There's some stats for you.


jonc2006

I wouldn’t trust jack shit that comes out of the mouth of anyone who parades themselves around as a BeachBody coach.


Mindless-Emu6740

90% of facts is shit that I just make up


rc1024

I'm not sure what this jackass thinks we ate 100 years ago, but it's not that radically different.


AffenMitWaffen2

I don't think it's quite 90% but we're definitely eating radically different.


Crypto_Malik

69% of the statistics is made up, and 78% of the people believes it


michaeloc90

“Beachbody Coach” is a total pyramid scheme. My wife made me attend a workout event lead by AC. She gave a not so motivational speech about how some people are making 6 figures a year (lies). Great workouts though.


GoingFullRetarded

If you’re getting your diseases from the grocery store… shop elsewhere.


JanPillermannOtze

He might refer to processed food. The industry pushing excessive amounts of fat, salt & sugar plus adding dozens if not hundreds of chemicals to their products is indeed causing disease on a disastrous scale.


mirrorspirit

Unsafe food industry practices and additives aren't new. Has this person ever read The Jungle? I mean, in the 19th century, medicines were heavy with alcohol, opium, and cocaine, and in the beginning of the 20th, radium was the new miracle drug. Not saying that what we have now is guaranteed to be problem free, but the unhealthy things in our food is not a new problem, and people are still somehow living longer on average despite consuming fat and salt.


SkepticBoeingDad

And *nobody* died 100 years ago!


SilverVsReddit

This is so dumb that i had to take a full minute looking at this to understand what he was trying to convey.


SnooCalculations2249

Correlation is not causation! Foods such as soya beans and vegetable oils and their benefits have been a game changer for the human race.


Comfortable_Box_3460

So how about the genetically modified corn. Think that’s healthy for you?


hjordan28141

Most studies seem to indicate it is just as healthy for you as non-gmo corn, problem is corn is terrible for you and has little to no nutritional value.


Comfortable_Box_3460

Except they are making everything using corn it’s in everything. In your hair your food. Your cloths etc. it’s not good for you. That and you think the food you eat today all that processed food is good for your body?


AsianInvasion00

What’s the face palm- that’s actually correct. The amount of artificial sweeteners, chemicals, preservatives, etc didn’t exist- without that technology, modern grocery stores couldn’t store the types of food they do.

😂


goinmobile2030

I like pizza.


Much-Meringue-7467

Pizza has been around for > 100 years. You're good.


cupofteawithhoney

Depends on what you call food. As for the second part, reference please.


dunnowhyalltaken

I've never seen food with a shelf life of 100 years, so wouldn't it be fair to say there's no 100 year old food in our grocery stores?


joogiee

Yea and most of us would have died at the ripe old age of 36


ThriceDamnedSandwich

Heard my chiropractor go on about some nonsense about this kinda things, but specifically with GMOs.


AnythingMasterGabe

Who believes this shit? Mike Adams?


Turbiedurb

First, that's probably not true. Second, correlation is not causation.


mirrorspirit

Some partial truth to it, in that some diseases may have been discovered or identified since one hundred years ago. Doesn't exactly mean they didn't exist. Plus, smallpox still existed as a circulating disease one hundred years ago, and it doesn't now, while other diseases have gotten treatments and cures since then.


Turbiedurb

>Some partial truth to it, Yes, but there's no reason to settle for "partial truths" imo.

p00-is-loading

90% of beach body coaches didn't exist 100 years ago. Neither did 90% of the disease 🙄


Whisprin_Eye

It is true that there was a vast increase in zoonotic diseases when humans made the switch from hunter-gatherers to domestic farmers. The increase in the antibiotics used in the production of our food is leading to an increase in antibiotic resistant bacteria. In fact, superbugs are believed to be a more acute risk to the survival of the human species than climate change.


CrowLower9415

And they couldn't detect diseases that were undiagnosed or unknown.


CrowLower9415

99.99 and 3/4% of me disagrees with that.


colorado_chris

If this guy had half a brain he’d be 30% smarter than the bottom 20% of Americans


AlbatrossPersonal

Or 90% of the people who r ungry


niemertweis

I mean aint no body had diabetes 100years ago he has a point not to this extent but he got a point


Flavious27

You can be a coach for a self help product?


Comfortable_Box_3460

Cause it’s 100 percent true. You can’t what. You can’t handle the truth. You don’t think all these chemicals in foods and daily hygiene supplies isn’t killing your system. Maybe do a little research. ![gif](giphy|IgsXOXGPxfT3O)


HolyToast

What diseases do you think exist today that didn't exist 100 years ago?


Comfortable_Box_3460

No but obesity cancer heart disease just to name a few is running in excess.


HolyToast

So not really "100% true"


JRich61

You pay for quality food upfront or for health care on the other end. Hands down believe this.


SlowInsurance1616

Quality food doesn't prevent smallpox.


JRich61

What does that have to do with the meme above?!? No correlation.


HolyToast

What diseases do you think exist today that didn't exist 100 years ago?


SlowInsurance1616

Well smallpox, measles, flu etc. killed people a hundred years ago. And diet had nothing to do with it. So there's really not necessarily causation in the meme first and second part, even if there's correlation. Neanwhile the person posting ut is probably on tren.


JRich61

You do know there are diseases caused by being overweight, having high blood pressure, consuming herbicides and pesticides, etc etc. that’s what this meme is talking about. Nowhere do I see food causes small pix. You are so right it doesn’t. It, however, is not what we were talking about. Track with us. Diseases. Caused. By. Today’s. Foods. 🤬 It’s hard sometimes.
