Bizarre ‘study’ claims eating too many chicken nuggets can turn you gay
A self-published “study” claims that eating too many fatty foods can cause homosexuality or make you transgender.
Author Rita Strakosha, who says she has “an M.P.S. degree in Clinical Psychology from Albanian University”, sent the 56-page document to PinkNews after self-publishing it as an e-book on Amazon.
In the document, which she has also put up for free on her website, attempts to link homosexuality to an unhealthy diet.
It claims: “Homosexuals… [often eat] large amounts of high glycemic index foods and fat, or eating an imbalanced diet, leaning toward carbohydrates. Some studies show an increased rate of obesity among homosexuals.
“Gay men, lesbian and bisexual women report a higher odds of sugar-sweetened beverage consumption than straight men and women.
“Access to a high calorie diet and alcoholic drinks was limited to the social elite circles in the past. Homosexuality as well appears to have been more frequent among that group.”
The paper ties homosexuality to fats, sugars and alcohol, proceeding to claim that cutting them out of your diet can “prevent the return of homosexual attractions”.
It argues that following a healthy diet with no sugar and sleeping adequately will ‘cure’ homosexuality in an individual and prevent its return.
