Ben is only getting to everyone due to the placebo/nocebo effect. Certain people say Ben is annoying and we all convince ourselves of that fact.

This argument seems to have been doing the rounds for months now, and people still haven't cooled off. I'm going to close this thread if the arguments continue - I don't see anyone contributing anything value towards 'diet and holistic health' here so it has no place being open in this forum, where it is merely attracting aggressive arguments.
If anyone wants to get the thread back on track, please do, but if any more argumentative comments are posted in here in the next couple of hours, I'm closing it.
Feel free to continue your arguments via PM or in the Lounge.

Scientific theory is scientific -- skepticism centers on claims that can't be substantiated ("drink olive oil, take a dump and you'll clear yourself within 10 years).
"However if you have an opposing viewpoint, resorting to a "prove it" basis of argument and then throwing in a flame along with doesn't substantiate a countervailing position."
Yes... a "prove it" basis of argument is pretty harsh. I'll just pretend every claim here is totally valid despite being false.
But back to the topic of the thread...
What exactly does the CD have on it? Just nature noise or some kind of pep talk or what? Seems interesting though I usually think you really need to have a positive attitude to believe that the tape you're listening to can help fix you up

Scepticism/Skepticism of something means you doubt that the claims can be proved. It is of course possible that they may be proved but you don't think they can.
Not trying to start a flame or anything here but if you are going to use big fancy words to try and make people believe you are more intelligent than they are, please make sure you state the definition correctly.
Anyway back on to the subject.
blueeyedbia, I look forward to reading your comments. I recently downloaded some relaxing mp3 and it really helps calm me even compared to regular music.
