“The waitress claimed it was "drink after drink" which is two. The experiment covers that amount. I suspect exaggeration in the wording on the part of the waitress in her zeal to tell on someone, given that she was fired after, but I could be wrong. There really isn't a difference to see since there are so many unanswered questions about this case. Posting that link is really about educating the public about breastfeeding myths than arguing this particular case.”

“I read it. You said the reports are conflicting. What reports? What science? What are these mysterious risks you allude to? Personal attacks do not buoy your position.”

“Hahaha, you're fun. Read the various comments on this thread where people have posted links to the different studies. Why do I have to research for you? Calm down. I didn't personally attack you. I told you to get over yourself. If you want to booze it up while you breast feed...more power to you. Personally, I wouldn't risk it but that's just me. I'm not judging people that think differently than I do. You might want to try that sometime.”

“But breastfeeding and having a drink or two isn't a crime. There is no scientific evidence to show potential harm from it. So the whole case could very conceivably end with the mother being found innocent of wrong doing. It would have to be shown her child was endangered by her actions and given what we know about breastfeeding pharmacology, that's unlikely.”

“A mother having a drink with alcohol while breastfeeding is not even remotely similar to giving alcohol directly to a baby. The amount of alcohol in her milk is the same concentration that is in her blood, which is miniscule. Don't take my word for it:

“Alcohol consumed by the mother shows up in her milk at the same concentration it is found in her blood. So even legally drunk (which isnt what we're talking about here because she wouldnt be able to care for her baby) is 0.08. That amount is so miniscule, it wouldnt cause those symptoms in the baby. Alcohol is metabolized, and excreted; it doesn't accumulate in the body. There is no science to back your argument about risk.”

esposd on Dec 4, 2013 at 07:22:35

“You're wrong and you did not read (or perhaps understand) what I said. The effect of alcohol is based on concentration and it has a bigger impact on a smaller body...that's why people with smaller body mass get drunker faster, all else being equal. It's also true that a young child with developing organs (like a liver) do not metabolize efficiently. So again, the impact is greater. That's pure science, not the street rumors you're pushing. If you want to drug and mess up your kid, more power to you. If it feels good, do it, right? or better yet -- we live in a free country, I can do what I want. Go for it!”

“It may have started out as a Christian holiday, but its now a secular western holiday. In our culture, the word Christmas evokes the name santa at least much, if not more than jesus, so I don't see why anyone who lives in this culture has a problem with it. Those Christians preaching to me about their sole ownership of the holiday and the 'reason for the season" will find themselves getting a lecture about the actual origin of holidays around the winter solstice and the history of December 25 as Jesus's birthday in the compilation of what is now their bible. But that's a whole other kettle of fish ;)”

“"Gripe water" sold in drugstore until the early nineties had alcohol in it. Doctors were recommending it for babies. The amount that gets into human milk is so tiny and the medicinal and social benefits of having a drink or two can be significant for breastfeeding mothers and contribute to longer overall nursing time, whose health benefits have been shown over and over.”

“There was a time, and we survivors are still here to tell the tale, when rubbing some whiskey on a teething child's gums was recommended as a way to get them to sleep. And, 40 years ago, and even less long ago than that, IV ethanol was being successfully used to stop premature labor.”

“Please, present some actual science as to how a drink or two while breastfeeding is a risk?”

esposd on Dec 3, 2013 at 16:13:02

“The science is: blood alcohol level and what it does to the brain -- you know -- killing brain cells, causing dehydration, impairing judgment, changing brain chemistry, creating a dependence. Of course, the child is smaller and less equipped to metabolize it, so the impact is greater at smaller doses. Smaller doses over time build up. It's not the two drinks that are the problem, it's the two repeated many times over. How's that for a remedial start?”

“Thanks for posting this. Jack Newman also writes about the red herring of alcohol in human milk. There is nothing wrong with a mom having a drink or two while breastfeeding. As long as she is able to care for her baby, the amount that gets into her milk is negligible.”

“You missed my point entirely. No one needs an excuse. Spencer West is doing exactly what he wants to do. So is Maria Kang. The difference is that Kang, with her question is telling other women they should value what she does. My point is what makes Kang's purpose so great that others need an excuse not to be doing it too? Looking really fabulous is fine, but when she implies others should value what she does as though what she does is inherently more important than other goals, she oversteps herself. Pretending the whole thing is about being healthy is just legitimizing her goal and trying to moralize to others about it. Its about the looks.”

Whitey McWhite on Nov 29, 2013 at 14:03:06

“And so It should be. In the vast majority of cases if you look good you are healthy. People who are in good fitness are generally more attractive than those who aren't.”

“Her message in contradictory. She says she fit should have many different looks, that she wont use fitness models for her website,that she herself has loose skin for example, and then she posts a picture of herself in which she looks like a fitness model, and has either been photoshopped or at least has somehow hidden any flaws she has and asks women what is their excuse? She says women should love themselves and that she understands that's what has to happen before they will work to be fitter, then she reviles real life women for how they look. Clearly, she doesnt understand what it means to love oneself for oneself. Then there was the 'apology' fiasco in which she eschewed responsibility for the things she said and did and blamed everyone else who simply interpreted her message wrong. The message I get from reading her blog and seeing the things she does is that she still fits the profile of a bulimic with a heaping dose of narcissism on the side and shouldn't be trying to counsel others.”

“Maybe. Sometimes thin women are starving themselves or purging to look that way. Thin doesn't always mean healthy.”

Whitey McWhite on Nov 29, 2013 at 13:25:00

“Yeah but is she advocating starvation? No she is talking about eating healthy and exercising. Can we stop pretending that eating disorders are even 1/10th the problem obesity is. Obviously some people can do nothing and stay at a healthy weight others will struggle but that is life. The child with a learning disability will have to work much harder in school for the same results, same thing with obesity. You mentioned Spencer West he used to come into a store I worked at and would wheel himself around or skateboard or walk on his hands, living his day to day life. Then in that same store I see people who where born with full use of their body who have eaten themselves into immobility riding around on electric scooters. What is there excuse? Spencer West proves Kang's point not yours. If a man with no legs can climb a mountain then really what is peoples excuse? There are legit excuses but they are just that an excuse a reason why something cannot happen.”

“If that were her message, I'd agree. But it isn't. She conflates looking really fantastic with being healthy and the two don't necessarily go together. One can be healthy and not have visible abs. One can look fabulous and be bulimic. That conflation is at the root of eating disorders, including bulimia, which Kang has had and claims is healed from. Her blog posts indicate otherwise.”

LockeDemosthenes on Nov 28, 2013 at 21:13:30

“I've seen her say, in many ways, and many times, that everyone's healthy looks different. Her message seems to be consistently that what matters is just that health is priority -- not the vanity angle .

I agree with you that one can be thin and unhealthy -- happens all the time as people strive in the wrong ways and for psychologically unsound reasons. I don't really think she's advocating that kind of lifestyle though, though I could be wrong.Fact is, while that manner of unhealth exists, obesity is still harmful, more often then not -- something there seems to be a tremendous and dangerous amount denial about. Even the Harvard study that confirmed that there are metabolically healthy obese said that it is not common, and very likely is only temporary. Metabolically healthy obesity can switch to it's less healthy counterpart.”

“Her personal history directly affects her message. Its not an attack, its a valid part of the discussion. An ad hominem attack would be if I said that she is short, therefore her opinion about obesity is invalid.

“Maybe that's why she has an eating disorder? Her past doesn't make her the ideal spokes model for obesity; clearly its affected her in some very serious ways. It seems it clouds her judgement and makes her less able to discuss the topic rationally and in a way that might help others. What sort of training does she have to counsel others in this way?”

LockeDemosthenes on Nov 28, 2013 at 17:55:13

“She has said that she used to have an eating disorder, according to her she doesn't currently. Whether or not that is truthful is anyone's guess -- but either way, her basic message that people would be wise to take better care of themselves physically is true, and ad hominem attacks won't change that. If you don't agree, don't pay her any attention -- simple as that.”

“Your comparison is absurd.

At what % of the population being obese will you admit this woman is right. Is 40% not enough? what about 60% or 80%. The problem in the health of society isn't judgmental 30 something year old Asian women it's the ginormous people going down the fast lane to a painful death. The problem with the label curvy isn't the curvy women it's the obese people who we lump in with them.”
