"This is not in question format" is a weakass excuse to close up. The true standard is whether the content is interesting and useful. And if it is, it is trivially easy to re-edit into question format.

Yes, it should have been closed. PH is a paleo Q&A site. This topic is not a question.

Should not have been closed. An interesting n=1. Interested in further information on the tests that indicate fitness age of 80; and also on her ultimate fate.

How about both? You can be smart at certain things, and certifiable in others. I just resent some nutritionist commenting on it like they know everything. People can survive on some strange foods. If she's taking multivitamins she is probably getting most nutrients necessary to survive for a long time. Isn't that why they put supplements in white flour to begin with? I don't recommend the diet, but articles like these are lame.

Paleo is not about finding delight in the ill health of others.

Smart, or certifiably crazy.

Readman could not be reached for comment but according to her doctors, she is malnourished and has the health of an 80 year old.

So, apparently, the subject of the story poses for a photo shoot for the story but can't be reached for the story. Meanwhile, her doctors, completely disregarding any doctor/patient confidentiality laws that might exist in that country, tell the journalists all about Readman's bad health.

These people are lying. They do not even have the decency of doing a good job of lying, much less giving us any sort of news.

She does not look 35. She looks like an eighteen year old kid with no makeup and a haircut that doesn't go with her face.

There are people who have issues with food and make up funny rules for themselves she seems one of them. It doesn't say if she's taking multivitamins but she would probably benefit from that. The whole "her doctors say she has "the health of an 80" sounds weird to me, are they actually talking about her health, or was it a general statement? Hospitalization and education sounds creepy.

I say if she did her own order of magnitude calculations of 30 miles of ramen per year, she's pretty smart.

I too, believe ramen noodles are addicive. Worse yet, you can add a few healthy things to them to convince yourself they are OK to eat.

Fortunately, paleo diet has kindly and naturally led me away from that type of insanity. Even though I remember enjoying them, I really have no craving for them. I'd have to be starving to eat them now. Which is probably what is happening to the subject of the news story.

About twenty years ago when I lived in Tokyo I recall a newspaper story about a young guy who ate instant ramen to death ... quite literally. They showed his tiny apartment and stacks of empty instant ramen containers. I suppose the export of instant ramen to Western countries is Japan's revenge for their exporting burgers, fries and pizza.

I miss ramen. It is addictive. But it's not worth what it does to the body. It's flour, fried vegetable oil, salt and MSG.
