Default Woman reportedly dies of protein overdose

http://people.com/bodies/bodybuildin...tein-overdose/

Apparently she had a urea cycle disorder.

Of course, now comes the requisite call, from her mom at least, for restrictions and regulations:

Quote:
Her family is now calling for tighter restrictions on protein supplements.

“I know there are people other than Meegan who have ended up in hospital because they’ve overloaded on supplements,” White said. “The sale of these products needs to be more regulated.”

Retards at it again. So she basically had no idea about her body, didn't consult her doctor and then died? How did she not know she had a major issue with her kidneys?

This is my whole gripe with regulations. You can't regulate your way out of stupid. Hopefully Australia just ignores this.

Yes, one of my gripes with it as well. Frankly, I fail to even see the newsworthiness of the whole thing. Tragic, certainly. But newsworthy, especially given the actual circumstances involved (beyond what the title implies)? Not if it was my publication.

The fact that we're all talking about it is exactly the reason such articles exist. Drama = exposure = traffic = money.

It's newsworthy because websites rely on clickbait bs controversy like this to get views in the modern world.
