    I don’t even know where to begin when it comes to pointing out how fucking stupid, wrong and misleading some of these “factoids” about okra are. To just take a few from the pile:

    No, okra does not treat syphilis, gonorrhea or any other STD.
    No, okra is not a high protein crop. In fact, it only contains miniscule amounts, and it’s not even a complete protein.
    No, okra does not increase the production of red blood cells.
    No, okra does not treat sun stroke.
    No, okra does not treat head lice, dandruff or psoriasis.

      I have just read the article and decided that I will really have to check out the details. I plant okras and because of the bountiful harvests gives away about 50% instead of storing in the freezer.

      Now if you have information to the contrary regarding the goodness of okra, then state it but tell me in the name of all that’s good and proper, why do you have to use expletives to try and make a point. Don’t you see how unnecessary that is. Grow up man and speak your “truth quietly.

      • He used one expletive and a lot of logic. I’ll take the trade-off. I think the original author of the article should quote some sources.

        The level of stupidity in the article warranted the need of an equal level of expression in the response. Also, I don’t think it’s a wise choice to disregard facts, calling them “truths”, just because they were presented with a swear word.
