"DNA Diets" : Are they junk science?
« on: 17/06/2016 05:19:39 »
I have seen a person who is really into having eating extra food but appears not to get fatter. Is this their genes, or something else?

How will you know that your poll is meaningful?
You might get 100 perhaps votes from companies selling these diets but what if all the users have died of malnutrition and are unable to answer?
Also you haven't included a yes, why not?

If they chose to vote perhaps instead of 'no' then their companies should fire them lol.

I won't vote on a poll that doesn't cover all options, namely the "YES" and thus is flawed as it suffers from the fallacy of false dilemma.

Any analysis of this poll is an autopsy report.
