Meh, that's not living. I'd say just give up, gamble in reincarnation, get a better body next time around.

It's just sharpens her up and makes her ready for a bit of the old ultraviolence.

1) I knew a guy who had a Glycogen Storage issue. I don't recall ever seeing him lugging around cartons of milk.

2) I'd rather die. Milk is farking nasty-ass shiat.

More like exaggeration of some facts and selective exclusion of others. Does that count as "making things up"?

Sounds like what she needs is starch, not milk. Aren't there better ways for her to consume starch than to mix small amounts into large glasses of milk?

This story was brought to you by the Milk Board of London. I call BullShait. Next they'll be telling us about a disorder that effect 1 in 7 million called Farkaloticisitis where the victim needs to ingest 2 cups of splooge every day.

I can't believe there aren't more efficient ways of dealing with this disorder. What about giving her gels, like the ones endurance athletes use to stave off glycogen depletion? (Granted, they tend to contain caffeine, which could be a problem.) They can get pricey, but I'm sure GU or some such company would be glad to keep her supplied in exchange for the publicity.

I agre that other drinks would do better to deliver the starch, heck, so would most foods.

Heck, this girl could hog down on sweet potatoes to deliver that starch as well as some better dietary supplements. Whole beans and lentils, and whole grains come to mind as well.

She would rather drink 6 pints of milk mixed with cornflour?!

So I asked myself "Does she have big boobs?", then I RTFA.

1. I was sad to see that the answer was no.

2. Then I took a seat over there.

Hopefully she does when she gets older. Because then hey, free milk.

It says in the article that plain old soda would work as well as the milk, but she doesn't like them. The starch is to provide energy slow enough that she can last through the night.

Might be more expensive than the milk, not actually be effective in this case, or it hasn't come up yet.

Or simply "Girl has to take a few supplements every day due to rare disease" doesn't make such a dramatic headline.

I'm pretty sure it's not just them. The real question is what is with the UK and their obsession with these things? All of the good articles about stuff like this come from the UK.

When I was over there for a short time for a convention. Nearly every woman I met who wasn't actively taking part was sitting down, leafing through a collection of tabloid-like magazines full of incredibly bright, colorful pictures of celebrities. They all seemed to be full of stories like this and random gossip. I presume it's what their media has gotten them used to.

Why are people featured in Mirror usually cute or attractive? The only times I've seen ugly people were when they featured disfiguring diseases and weird stuff like that.

I don't know, I see quite a few from China and India too. I figure part of the reason is that the UK medical establishment are good enough to catch these things so the kids actually survive, combined with a news system willing to pay these people to air their problems.

Though, yeah, it seems to be a media quirk with them, sort of like the USA and movie/sport stars.

This is what GMO crops do to you, especially soy. If I remember correctly the UK has banned all soy for that reason, it damages your DNA.
