    Hubpages as sent me an email with the following requests.

    - Please provide sources for where you found your information (particularly about acidity levels, unhealthy bacteria, and intermittent fasting). Adding sources will significantly boost your article's credibility.

    - A couple of your photos appear to be a bit pixellated or low-quality. I wonder if you might be able to replace these with higher-resolution images, if any are available?

    I've replaced photographs, so tell me if you think there are any others that are blurry.

    I've also provided numerous references, but I might have missed something out. Can you see any?

    I don't want to resubmit until it's perfect.

    Thank you. smile

      Your hub is great. ☺ But, aren't the links too many? Other than those they asked.

        I don't know. I was asked for links to prove my claims. I'm asking whether they're enough or too many. I don't know.

          Other than source information about acidity levels, unhealthy bacteria, and intermittent fasting, I don't think you should include more links. The links are way too many, according to me.

          They didn't ask for "links", they asked for sources.  There's a difference.

            I agree.

              Really? You don't think that links can lead to sources? And that it's traditional to use hyperlinks on the web to provide evidence for what is being said? Every single publication uses that methodology.

                I think it's better to avoid too many links. You have made garlic and many other words as links too. I would just say link those sources only which they asked (acidity levels, unhealthy bacteria, and intermittent fasting.)

                  All of them are sources. We shall have to see. I'mnot going to remove any, but each link is a resource for something else. I was asked to provide sources for what I said. I made several claims, and I provided a source for each of them.

                  But thanks, anyway. We will have to see. smile

      I still think the hub is great.  I do agree that the pictures could be better but then images taken so long ago can't really be replaced so I would not worry about it.
      As for the links, staff asked you to provide proof of your claims and I think that is fine.  I have seen hubs with far more links and as long as they are substantiating your claims then I don't think you have anything to worry about.

        TessSchlesingerposted 9 months ago in reply to this

        Thanks. Do you think that there is something that the staff might want substantiated that I left out? I tried to put myself in a position where I would want proof for some of my claims, and the obvious ones were alkilinity but I think everybody knows that we need to eat nutritious food. So not so many links there.

          I don't know enough about the subject and to be honest, I don't think I would have wanted the proof myself.  The proof is in the pudding so to speak:)  Submit it and if they want any more you will soon hear back from them.

          Check for spelling errors. And perhaps don't use phrases like "fat as a pig" (or "fat" and "ugly" in the same sentence) - especially when showing a photo of women that look perfectly normal weight. Oh - and you forgot that DNA and genes matter - a lot! And please don't advice people to drink hydrogen peroxide...

            My article. I share what my sister and I do. H202 is sold in health shops and is used by the food industry.

            Yes, genes matter, but if you abuse your genetic heritage you will still age rapidly and if you eat welll, regardless of your gentic heritage you will age less rapidly.

            Next, up until the 80s what you regard as normal weight in America is regarded as obese elsewhere - by doctors.  Also in 12 years I never saw one fat child at school. That is my understanding of what fat is.

            Yes I am aware of the spelling errors and some badly worded sentences.
            Will correct tomorrow. Am out and about.

            Thank you for your input.

        I disagree.  One of the requirements for stellar hubs is to have clear, sharp photographs.  Poorly pixelated photos won't cut it.

      I think you and your sister look beautiful, and those amazing personal pictures should be worth a mint, no matter if they are a little fuzzy. I'm afraid the subject of this hub may be making it a target.

      Anti-aging products and "cures" can be somewhat "spammy." Many people want to look young, therefore there is a market for products that promise that, and plenty of people looking to make a buck off of it.

      Maybe it's not quite fair, you are speaking from your personal experience, and don't really have a product to sell. Still, I think that may be affecting the amount of scrutiny your hub is getting.

        That makes sense. I rather got a sense of that. Nevertheless, people who live according to these rules do look younger. Aging is a reflection of a lack of adequate nutrition in the body, and when there are certain lacks, disease can develop as well. Leslie Kenton wrote about this in her antiabing books in the early 80s.

    Well, I certainly put a lot more work in that than I thought was going to. I changed some things after some though (yes, the H202 is out, but I still use it), and I've substituted apple cider vinegar and bicarb with the correct medical references.

    I added masses of photos in a video presentation with photos of both parernts to show (or not show) genetic advantages.

    So that's about it.

    Lots of work.

    Thank you for your input. smile
