Fake Friday: Honey and cinnamon will not make your hip bones stick out.

honeycinnamontextcurated from Natural News (Image source unknown, but prevelent on the thinspiration tumblrs. If this is your image, please let me know.)

This very popular pin of a thin young woman with her shorts half-down taking a self-portrait in a mirror is being re-pinned with that quote above about using honey and cinnamon as a weight loss method.

If anyone who re-pinned it that way had bothered to click the link, they’d read an article, sans that image, about the purported health benefits of honey and cinnamon, including this quote:

The two biggest claims for honey and cinnamon are that they enhance the ability to lose weight, and they are effective against some forms of cancer.While these latter two claims are unproven, however nature does provide an amazing range of natural healing substances, most of which are untested by medical science. Relying exclusively on honey and cinnamon for either weight loss or eliminating cancer is not advisable.

As the man said, reading is fundamental. And people are idiots.

If you think the woman in this image is beautiful, commenter Stacy Thomas wants to know if you think alcoholics are beautiful, too, because, ya know, it’s practically the same thing. Click image to read comments.

UPDATE 12.15.12: Thanks, Kelly, for letting us know that Stacy’s comments have since been removed…the rest remain.
