Off me ol chest (yes I’m Irish now)

These days, everyone’s an expert on everything. Everyone knows everything on every subject, and if I know one thing it’s that everyone knows more than me. 

Well, guess what? 

Not everyone is an expert. Hearing a piece of information from a friend who probably knows very little does not qualify you to dish out advice. Sorry people, it’s the truth. 

I think it’s easy to say “it’s been scientifically proven” or “every person in the field does this”. Well just because one person you know does it does NOT mean everyone does it. Just because you add “oh it’s been scientifically proven” to the end of your sentences does NOT mean it has been scientifically proven. Ya, maybe that you are saying inaccurate statements. No, not your advice. 

So guess what?!?! You get to do your own research. Read. Read. Read. Not some crappy article written by a brand telling you oh this brand is going to change your life. It works. PEOPLE THOSE ARE LIES. 

READ SCHOLARLY ARTICLES. READ FACTS. READ SCIENCE. READ UNBIASED INFORMATION. 

6-8 glasses of water a day came out of someone’s butt. No science backing this claim. In fact, when it was tested, there was no evidence to even support it. Yet EVERRRRYONe needs to be drinking this much or else you’ll die of dehydration. Ya right. People get in the KNOW. 

Soooooo Michelle Obama’s “drink up” campaign just makes her look uninformed now… Good intentions gone awry because of failure to do research. 

If there is one thing to take away from this, it is that do NOT trust people’s opinions even if they add the words “fact”, “true”, and “science” throughout the conversation. Don’t do it. Trust SCIENCE. Trust facts. Trust knowledge. It is in fact power people. 

Swan dives off soapbox
