WHY Should YOU Believe ME?
How do I know what I know? Before the Internet existed and before search engines, searching databases was a complex process requiring boolean searches and writing queries. Because I worked for IBM for 23 years I learned to do advanced searches.
I worked all those years diagnosing whether computer system failures were caused by hardware, software (operating system or application), the communications network, or user error. Many of those problems were intermittent. The toughest ones to diagnose are those that cause overlapping symptoms from unrelated causes.
Before I chose to leave because IBM stole our pensions and was working me to death – literally – I managed the largest multi-CPU mainframe accounts using refrigerated, water-cooled, and RISC towers (similar to Big Blue used in the famous Chess matches) networked together with International remote telecommunications networks.
Determining which variables can be isolated to determine the most
likely cause or causes is what I did for a living – and that is also what
must be done to follow the evidence and arrive at the truth.
I’ve been researching nutrition since I started breeding Thoroughbreds to race in 1978. To excel as an athlete – horse or human – requires far higher levels of quality nutrition and health than a horse that is a pasture ornament or a person sitting behind a desk all day does.
