To reduce nitrates eat less vegetables

.
5 times more dietary nitrates come from vegetables than from cured meats!

Not as bad ...  (Wiki - Saussage)

Not as healthy ...(Wiki Healthy_diet)
"Contribution of vegetables and cured meat to dietary nitrate and nitrite intake in Italian population: Safe level for cured meat and controversial role of vegetables"
Rossana Roila et al., Italian Journal of Food Safety, Vol 7, No 3 (2018)

Paper

Table 1 from the quoted paper.

The paper found that most nitrates in an average diet studied, come from vegetables not cured meats!


Quote:
The average consumption among population resulted 3.45 g/kg bw/die [gram per kg body per daily dietary intake] and 0.62 g/kg bw/die for vegetables and cured meat respectively. The obtained data confirm that nitrate ADI was higher than the limits of 3.7 mg/kg bw/die for infants and was the highest exposure level for people of all ages. Cured meat consumption did not contribute to nitrate ADI exceedance neither as a mean nor as 99th percentile of exposure.

Mediterranean diet is good, adding meat & dairy makes it better!

.
as the following two studies have recently demonstrated:

1) "A Mediterranean-style eating pattern with lean, unprocessed red meat has cardiometabolic benefits for adults who are overweight or obese in a randomized, crossover, controlled feeding trial",
Lauren E O'Connor, Douglas Paddon-Jones, Amy J Wright, Wayne W Campbell,
The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, Volume 108, Issue 1, 1 July 2018, Pages 33–40

Note: they used lean read meat. I predict a follow-up study titled "A Mediterranean-style eating pattern with fatty, unprocessed red meat has the greatest cardiometabolic benefits"!


2) "A Mediterranean diet supplemented with dairy foods improves markers of cardiovascular risk: results from the MedDairy randomized controlled trial",

Results
Compared with the LF intervention, the MedDairy intervention resulted in a significantly lower morning SBP (mean difference: −1.6 mm Hg; 95% CI: −2.8, −0.4 mm Hg; P = 0.01), lower morning diastolic blood pressure (mean difference: −1.0; 95% CI: −1.7, −0.2 mm Hg; P = 0.01) and clinic SBP (mean difference: −3.5 mm Hg; 95% CI: −6.4, −0.7 mm Hg; P = 0.02), significantly higher HDL cholesterol (mean difference: 0.04 mmol/L; 95% CI: 0.01, 0.06 mmol/L; P < 0.01), lower triglycerides (mean difference: = −0.05 mmol/L; 95% CI: −0.08, −0.01 mmol/L; P < 0.01), and lower ratio of total to HDL cholesterol (mean difference: −0.4; 95% CI: −0.6, −0.2; P < 0.001). No effects were observed for other outcome measures. Conclusions
Following a MedDiet with additional dairy foods led to significant changes in markers of cardiovascular risk over 8 wk. The MedDiet supplemented with dairy may be appropriate for an improvement in cardiovascular risk factors in a population at risk of CVD.

Whole-grain wheat - disproven!

.



The effects of whole-grain compared with refined wheat, rice, and rye on the postprandial blood glucose response: a systematic review and meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials, Kathy Musa-Veloso et al., The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, Volume 108, Issue 4, 1 October 2018, Pages 759–774,

LDL does not cause heart disease

.
Recent paper by Uffe Ravnskov (et al.) - the father of cholesterol "red-pilling"!

"LDL-C Does Not Cause Cardiovascular Disease: a comprehensive review of current literature",
Uffe Ravnskov et al., Taylor & Francis Online, 10 Sep 2018



Key issues (quoted):

  • The hypothesis that high TC or LDL-C causes atherosclerosis and CVD has been shown to be false by numerous observations and experiments.
  • The fact that high LDL-C is beneficial in terms of overall lifespan has been ignored by researchers who support the lipid hypothesis.
  • The assertion that statin treatment is beneficial has been kept alive by individuals who have ignored the results from trials with negative outcomes and by using deceptive statistics.
  • That statin treatment has many serious side effects has been minimized by individuals who have used a misleading trial design and have ignored reports from independent researchers.
  • That high LDL-C is the cause of CVD in FH is questionable because LDL-C does not differ between untreated FH individuals with and without CVD.
  • Millions of people all over the world, including many with no history of heart disease, are taking statins, and PCSK-9 inhibitors to lower LDL-C further are now being promoted, despite unproven benefits and serious side effects.
  • We suggest that clinicians should abandon the use of statins and PCSK-9 inhibitors, and instead identify and target the actual causes of CVD.


More Quotes (chapter headlines):

2.1 No association between TC and degree of atherosclerosis

2.2 No exposure-response

3.1 An idea supported by fraudulent reviews of the literature

4. Does high LDL-C cause atherosclerosis? 4.1 An idea based on selected patient groups

5.1 LDL-C of patients with acute myocardial infarction is lower than normal

5.2 Elderly people with high LDL-C live the longest

6.1 No exposure-response in the statin trials

6.2 The benefit of statin treatment is exaggerated

6.3 The benefit from statin treatment has been questioned

6.4 Adverse effects from statin treatment

6.5 Does treatment with PCSK-9 inhibitors improve the outcome?
A new cholesterol-lowering drug has recently been introduced. It is an antibody that inhibits proprotein convertase subtilisin–kexin type 9 (PCSK9), which lowers LDL-C by approximately 60%. In FOURIER, the largest and longest PCSK-9 inhibitor trial, Evolocumab was compared with placebo in more than 27,000 statin-treated patients with CVD [92]. The trial was stopped after 2.2 years because the number of MVE was reduced with statistical significance (9.8% vs. 11.3%). However, both CVD mortality and total mortality had increased, although not with statistical significance. A relevant question is therefore, why the trial, the sponsor of which (Amgen) was responsible for data collection, was ended after only 2.2 years. Furthermore, this trial is yet another proof that there is no exposure-response between LDL-C and total or CVD mortality.

7. Does FH prove that high LDL-C causes CVD?

7.1 A low percent of FH [Familial Hypercholesterolemia] individuals die prematurely

7.2 No LDL-C difference between FH individuals with and without CVD

8. Has CVD mortality decreased after the introduction of statin treatment? ...
American National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey [103] found that during the period 1999-2006 the number of AMI and strokes increased from 3.4 to 3.7%, and from 2.0 to 2.9%, respectively. During the same period mean LDL-C level decreased from 126.1 to 114.8 mg/dL, and the self-reported use of lipid-lowering drugs increased from 8 to 13.4%. Furthermore, statin utilization in 12 European countries between 2000 and 2012 was not associated with reduced CHD mortality or its rate of change over the years [104].

9. Conclusion
The idea that high cholesterol levels in the blood are the main cause of CVD is impossible because people with low levels become just as atherosclerotic as people with high levels and their risk of suffering from CVD is the same or higher. The cholesterol hypothesis has been kept alive for decades by reviewers who have used misleading statistics, excluded the results from unsuccessful trials and ignored numerous contradictory observations.

Quoting the captions for the figures!

Figure 2. The association between degree of LDL-C lowering and the absolute risk reduction of total mortality (per cent per year) in 26 statin trials, where total mortality was recorded and which were included in the study by Silverman et al. and in 11 ignored trials. ARR is weakly associated with degree of LDL-C lowering in the included trials (y = 0.28x + 0.06), but inversely associated in the excluded trials (y = - 0.49x - 0.81). Symbols: see figure 1.

According to Ference et al. [3] the most compelling clinical evidence for causality is provided by “the presence of more than 30 randomized cholesterol-lowering trials that consistently demonstrate that reducing LDL-C reduces the risk of CVD events proportional to the absolute reduction in LDL-C.” As previously noted, this is not true exposure-response. Furthermore, in their figure 5A, that illustrates the association, the authors have only included data from12 of the 30 trials they refer to. If all of the trials in table 1 are included, as we have done in figure 3, there is no association between LDL-C lowering and coronary event rate.

Figure 5. The association between the absolute risk reduction of total mortality in 26 statin trials included in the study by Silverman et al. and in 11 ignored trials; and the year where the trial protocols were published. The vertical line indicates the year where the new trial regulations were introduced. [penalizing publication of false results - the new trials show no risk reduction! commented by S.B.]

Fructose-copper connection

.

"The fructose–copper connection: Added sugars induce fatty liver and insulin resistance via copper deficiency", James J. DiNicolantonio, Dennis Mangan, James H. O'Keefe

Quote:

The overconsumption of sugar may be one of the biggest drivers of NAFLD.4 Several factors may be involved in sugar-driven NAFLD, including bacterial translocation from the gut to the liver and advanced glycation end products.8 However, low hepatic copper levels are also implicated in NAFLD; thus sugar consumption can lead to low copper.9 This suggests that the overconsumption of sugar may lead to NAFLD and insulin resistance via hepatic copper deficiency.

In a rat model of NAFLD, dietary sucrose and copper deficiency increased inflammation, fibrosis and lipogenesis.9 Compared to a control diet in which rats were fed with sufficient copper and 10% sucrose, either a high-sucrose diet or a low copper diet increased the hepatic expression of genes regulating inflammation and fibrosis. The low copper diet led to low serum and hepatic copper, increased lipid peroxidation and histopathology similar to that found in NAFLD. The combined low copper and high sugar diet led to all of these changes as well as hepatic insulin resistance and liver damage, but neither low copper nor high sugar caused weight gain. Low copper and high sugar promoted gene expression and physiological processes typical of NAFLD as well as non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) even without weight gain.

The fructose component of dietary sucrose, in particular, can induce copper deficiency. In rats, a diet of only 3% fructose from beverage intake – a rather modest fructose consumption that is lower than typical intake of Americans – impaired copper status and led to a significant induction of hepatic injury, iron overload and fat accumulation.10 Therefore, fructose-induced copper deficiency could be an important mechanism behind fructose-induced NAFLD. Ultra-high consumption of fructose is not necessarily required for fructose-induced fatty liver with levels lower than the average American consumption capable of inducing it in rats.

Alzheimer and blood glucose

.

Sugar’s “tipping point” link to Alzheimer’s disease revealed

For the first time a “tipping point” molecular link between the blood sugar glucose and Alzheimer’s disease has been established by scientists, who have shown that excess glucose damages a vital enzyme involved with inflammation response to the early stages of Alzheimer’s.

Abnormally high blood sugar levels, or hyperglycaemia, is well-known as a characteristic of diabetes and obesity, but its link to Alzheimer’s disease is less familiar.

Diabetes patients have an increased risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease compared to healthy individuals. In Alzheimer’s disease abnormal proteins aggregate to form plaques and tangles in the brain which progressively damage the brain and lead to severe cognitive decline.


Dr Rob Williams, Dr Omar Kassaar and Prof Jean van den Elsen

Scientists already knew that glucose and its break-down products can damage proteins in cells via a reaction called glycation but the specific molecular link between glucose and Alzheimer’s was not understood.

But now scientists from the University of Bath Departments of Biology and Biochemistry, Chemistry and Pharmacy and Pharmacology, working with colleagues at the Wolfson Centre for Age Related Diseases, King’s College London, have unraveled that link.

By studying brain samples from people with and without Alzheimer’s using a sensitive technique to detect glycation, the team discovered that in the early stages of Alzheimer’s glycation damages an enzyme called MIF (macrophage migration inhibitory factor) which plays a role in immune response and insulin regulation.

MIF is involved in the response of brain cells called glia to the build-up of abnormal proteins in the brain during Alzheimer’s disease, and the researchers believe that inhibition and reduction of MIF activity caused by glycation could be the ‘tipping point’ in disease progression. It appears that as Alzheimer’s progresses, glycation of these enzymes increases.

No benefit in LDL-C lowering, trend toward harm.

.



Quote

No beneficial relationship was found between LDL-C lowering and cardiovascular events explored by meta-regression; instead, there was a trend toward harm.

The systematic review ...,Battaggia A, et al. Curr Med Res Opin. 2018.

Quote

CONCLUSIONS: The relationship between LDL-C lowering and cardiovascular events has not showed any significant association (and even a tendency toward harm), challenging the "lower the better" theory. A separate meta-analysis of trials recruiting familial hypercholesterolemia patients has showed a tendency to harm for all outcomes with PCSK9 antibodies. Therefore, at the moment, the data available from randomized trials does not clearly support the use of these antibodies.

New Study: Hepatitis B Vaccine Triples the Risk of Autism in Infant Boys

Quote:

To begin with, it is unscientific and perilously misleading for anyone to assert that “vaccines and autism” have been studied and that no link has been found. That’s because the 16 or so studies constantly cited by critics of the hypothesis have examined just one vaccine and one vaccine ingredient.

And, the population studies themselves have had critical design flaws and limitations.

The current US childhood immunization schedule calls for 28 injections with 11 different vaccines against 15 different diseases by two years of age. Of those 11 vaccines, only the Measles-Mumps-Rubella (MMR) shot has been studied in association with autism, (although a CDC study of an MMR-plus-chickenpox vaccine did show that the risk for febrile seizures in infants was doubled.) Meanwhile, those 11 vaccines contain scores of ingredients, only one of which, thimerosal, has ever been tested in association with autism.

cereal-free diet with vit D suppresses dental caries in children

.
By an order of magnitude, as shown in the following intervention study done on young children age 5-6 over 6 months:


Remarks
ON THE INFLUENCE OF A CEREAL-FREE DIET RICH IN VITAMIN D AND CALCIUM ON DENTAL CARIES IN CHILDREN
BY MAY MELLANBY AND C. LEE PATTISON, The British Medical Journal, MARCH 19, 1932





Summary:

1. A group of children averaging 5.1 years of age were given a cereal-free diet rich in vitamin D and calcium for a period of six months. The teeth of the children were defective in structure (hypoplastic), and much active dental caries was present at the beginning of the investigation.

2. Initiation and spread of caries were almost eliminated by these diets, and the results were better than those of the previous investigation in which-the vitamin D alone was increased in a diet containing bread and other cereals.


Quotes:


They indicate that a diet rich in vitamin D and calcium and devoid of cereals has greater inhibitory and curative effects on dental caries than any previously tested. Thus the new carious points observed to develop during the feeding period were only 0.05 per child as compared with the previous best result of 0.2 per child. The figure 0.05 is so small that it probably falls within the margin of error of this type of observation, and new caries may be considered, therefore, to have been suppressed.
...
The tests do not indicate that in order to prevent dental caries children must live on a cereal-free diet, but in association with the results of the other investigations on animals and children they do indicate that the amount of cereal eaten should be reduced, particularly during infancy and in the earlier years of life, and should be replaced by an increased consumption of milk, eggs, butter, potatoes, and other vegetables. They also indicate that-a sufficiency of vitamin D and calcium should be given from birth, and before birth, by supplying a suitable diet to the pregnant mother. The teeth of the children would be well formed and more resistant to dental caries instead of being hypoplastic and badly calcified, as were those in this investigation.

Comment

Want healthy teeth? Don't eat cereals, better yet eat high animal fat low carb diet with no wheat. I  haven't been to and had no need to use a dentist since 1998. I am 62.

how corporations use scientists to manipulate the public

.
The lawsuit and a verdict against Monsanto described in the article below illustrates the way large corporations use scientists to manipulate public opinion and to hide the inconvenient facts. I expect similar outcomes when the corporations and activists behind "Global Warming/Climate Change" and "Cholesterol/Fat Theory of Heart Disease" will be brought to trial in the similar fashion.

Monsanto ordered to pay $289m as jury rules weedkiller caused man's cancer

Quotes:

Johnson’s lawyers argued over the course of a month-long trial in San Francisco that Monsanto had “fought science” for years and targeted academics who spoke up about possible health risks of the herbicide product.
...
In the extraordinary verdict, which Monsanto said it intends to appeal, the jury ruled that the company was responsible for “negligent failure” and knew or should have known that its product was “dangerous”.

“We were finally able to show the jury the secret, internal Monsanto documents proving that Monsanto has known for decades that ... Roundup could cause cancer,” Johnson’s lawyer Brent Wisner said in a statement.
...
Johnson’s case was particularly significant because a judge allowed his team to present scientific arguments. The dispute centered on glyphosate, which is the world’s most widely used herbicide. The verdict came a month after a federal judge ruled that cancer survivors or relatives of the deceased could bring similar claims forward in another trial.

During the lengthy trial, the plaintiff’s attorneys brought forward internal emails from Monsanto executives that they said demonstrated how the corporation repeatedly ignored experts’ warnings, sought favorable scientific analyses and helped to “ghostwrite” research that encouraged continued usage.
...
Another Roundup cancer trial is scheduled to begin in the fall in St Louis, Missouri. According to Johnson’s lawyers, Monsanto is facing more than 4,000 similar cases across the US.

"Ghostwrite" research means that the corporations hired and paid some scientists to publish falsified or incomplete material in scientific journals in order to portray the company in a favorable light or to obfuscate the wrong-doings.

The following letter outlines the tactics employed by the corporation to manufacture a false outcry in the media and rally the public opinion against the whisteblowers and organisation (in this case IARC / WHO ) that have published damaging facts.

How Monsanto Manufactured ‘Outrage’ at IARC over Cancer Classification

As a side note I find it amusing that the similar to the above-described public-opinion manipulation techniques have been employed since 2016 in the English language media to manufacture an artificial anti-Trump and anti-Republican 'outrage', known as "Trump-Derangement Syndrome". :)

salt and cardiovascular risk debunked

.
It was a fake theory! Fake - I like this word.

A Canadian study, just published in The Lancet:
Urinary sodium excretion, blood pressure, cardiovascular disease, and mortality: a community-level prospective epidemiological cohort study
Andrew Menteet al., VOLUME 392, ISSUE 10146, P496-506, AUGUST 11, 2018


Quote:

The association between mean sodium intake and major cardiovascular events showed significant deviations from linearity (p=0.043) due to a significant inverse association in the lowest tertile of sodium intake (lowest tertile <4.43 g/day, mean intake 4.04 g/day, range 3.42-4.43; change -1.00 events per 1000 years,...

Sodium intake was associated with cardiovascular disease and strokes only in communities where mean intake was greater than 5 g/day.

Halite (rock salt) from the Wieliczka salt mine,


Note: "inverse" association means that lower sodium INCREASES the rate of disease. In this case the cutoff threshold for the inverse relation is about 4g per day. The recommended daily dose of sodium by the fake (I love it) medical authorities is about 2g/day. Also, the usage of the unit "minus one event per 1000 years" has to be interpreted such that statistically there is one event less than the average, per 1000 patients per year rather than having to wait 1000 years for one patient event.

Lancet - A lot of what is published is incorrect

.
Offline: What is medicine's 5 sigma? by Richard Horton, Published in "The Lancet" 11 April 2015

Quote

The case against science is straightforward: much of the scientific literature, perhaps half, may simply be untrue. Afflicted by studies with small sample sizes, tiny effects, invalid exploratory analyses, and flagrant conflicts of interest, together with an obsession for pursuing fashionable trends of dubious importance, science has taken a turn towards darkness. As one participant put it, “poor methods get results”. The Academy of Medical Sciences, Medical Research Council, and Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council have now put their reputational weight behind an investigation into these questionable research practices. The apparent endemicity of bad research behaviour is alarming. In their quest for telling a compelling story, scientists too often sculpt data to fit their preferred theory of the world. Or they retrofit hypotheses to fit their data. Journal editors deserve their fair share of criticism too. We aid and abet the worst behaviours. Our acquiescence to the impact factor fuels an unhealthy competition to win a place in a select few journals. Our love of “significance” pollutes the literature with many a statistical fairy-tale. We reject important confirmations. Journals are not the only miscreants. Universities are in a perpetual struggle for money and talent, endpoints that foster reductive metrics, such as high-impact publication. National assessment procedures, such as the Research Excellence Framework, incentivise bad practices. And individual scientists, including their most senior leaders, do little to alter a research culture that occasionally veers close to misconduct.

SARAH HALLBERG: Don’t manage diabetes, reverse it


Quote:

Diabetes is reversible. That’s the exciting conclusion of a study I’m leading at Indiana University Health.
Two hundred and sixty-two patients with type-2 diabetes recently completed one year of a clinical trial examining the impact of a low-carbohydrate diet, which limits foods like grains and pasta while boosting consumption of healthy fats like avocados and butter. The diet didn’t restrict calories.
...
A full 94 percent of patients on the low-carb intervention have been able to reduce or eliminate their need for insulin. For six in ten patients, average blood sugar levels fell so low that technically, they had reversed their diabetes.
...
With conventional treatment regimens, according to a study in Diabetes Care, only 0.1 percent of patients achieve complete remission.

'In addition to not contributing to death, the results suggest that one fatty acid present in dairy may lower risk of death from cardiovascular disease, particularly from stroke.'

Dietary guidelines in the US and UK recommend people people opt for low or no-fat dairy, however, the researchers warn such options are often high in sugar, which can drive heart disease.

Experts admitted surprise at the findings because so many other studies have linked red meat to physical health risks. The team made the link after a study of 1000 Australian women. Professor Felice Jacka, who led the research by Deakin University, Victoria, said: "We had originally thought that red meat might not be good for mental health but it turns out that it actually may be quite important. "When we looked at women consuming less than the recommended amount of red meat in our study, we found that they were twice as likely to have a diagnosed depressive or anxiety disorder as those consuming the recommended amount. "Even when we took into account the overall healthiness of the women's diets, as well as other factors such as their socioeconomic status, physical activity levels, smoking, weight and age, the relationship between low red meat intake and mental health remained.

Artemisia Annua Sweet Wormwood - anti-cancer

.

Ancient Chinese Salad Plant Transformed Into New Cancer-killing Compound

Quotes:

The artemisinin compound takes advantage of cancer cell's high iron levels. Artemisinin is highly toxic in the presence of iron, but harmless otherwise. Cancer cells need a lot of iron to maintain the rapid division necessary for tumor growth.

Since too much free-floating iron is toxic, when cells need iron they construct a special protein signal on their surfaces. The body's machinery then delivers iron, shielded with a protein package, to these signals proteins. The cell then swallows this bundle of iron and proteins.

Artemisinin alone is fairly effective at killing cancer cells. It kills approximately 100 cancer cells for every healthy cell, about ten times better than current chemotherapies. To improve those odds, the researchers added a small chemical tag to artemisinin that sticks to the "iron needed here" protein signal. The cancer cell, unaware of the toxic compound lurking on its surface, waits for the protein machinery to deliver iron molecules and engulfs everything -- iron, proteins and toxic compound.

Once inside the cell, the iron reacts with artemisinin to release poisonous molecules called free radicals. When enough of these free
radicals accumulate, the cell dies.

"The compound is like a little bomb-carrying monkey riding on the back of a Trojan horse," said Henry Lai, UW bioengineering professor and
co-author of the study.

The compound is so selective for cancer cells partly due to their rapid multiplication, which requires high amounts of iron, and partly because cancer cells are not as good as healthy cells at cleaning up free-floating iron.

"Cancer cells get sloppy at maintaining free iron, so they are more sensitive to artemisinin," Sasaki said.

The study, the largest gold-standard experiment testing that idea, found the opposite, Ramsden and his colleagues reported on Tuesday in BMJ (formerly the British Medical Journal).

Although the study is more than just another entry in the long-running nutrition wars—it is more rigorous than the vast majority of research on the topic—Ramsden makes no claims that it settles the question. Instead, he said, his discovery and analysis of long-lost data underline how the failure to publish the results of clinical trials can undermine truth.
...
The coleader of the project was Dr. Ancel Keys, author of the Seven Countries Study, Time cover subject, and the most prominent advocate of replacing saturated fat with vegetable fat. “The idea that there might be something adverse about lowering cholesterol [via vegetable oils] was really antithetical to the dogma of the day,” Bob Frantz said.

His father, he said, “was always committed to discovering the truth. He would be pleased this is finally coming out.”


From The Telegraph "Modern dunce's cap"



I beg to differ. I doubt if Dr. Ivan Frantz would be proud of publishing the truth, because he could have but he didn't! I think he was afraid of the truth! Like many academics, intellectuals and most people I knew worked with.   Not only Dr. I. Frantz kept the study's most important data unpublished but also actively obfuscated it by publishing a misleading partial summaries and whitewashed watered-down inconclusive "conclusions".

Half-truth = full lie!


Because of Dr. Ivan Frantz' and other fake scientists' failure to publish the truth, What followed was 40-more years of suffering by millions of people from preventable diseases, due to bad dietary advise and corporate self-served food marketing that was based on the academically-supported half-truth, lies and distortions!

United Stated needs no external enemy - it is being destroyed by their own luminaries and the establishment through half-truth, lies and deception.

Bob Frantz, Dr. Franz's son, who rediscovered the hidden records and got them published, can't really feel proud of his father, but he definitely deserves to be proud of himself and be praised for bringing the truth! He is also lucky to have survived his father's bad diet at home, as a child.

Forbes: majority scientists consensus - not supporting Global Warming crisis!

.
https://www.forbes.com/sites/jamestaylor/2013/02/13/peer-reviewed-survey-finds-majority-of-scientists-skeptical-of-global-warming-crisis

Quote:

It is becoming clear that not only do many scientists dispute the asserted global warming crisis, but these skeptical scientists may indeed form a scientific consensus.

Don’t look now, but maybe a scientific consensus exists concerning global warming after all. Only 36 percent of geoscientists and engineers believe that humans are creating a global warming crisis, according to a survey reported in the peer-reviewed Organization Studies. By contrast, a strong majority of the 1,077 respondents believe that nature is the primary cause of recent global warming and/or that future global warming will not be a very serious problem.

The survey results show geoscientists (also known as earth scientists) and engineers hold similar views as meteorologists. Two recent surveys of meteorologists (summarized here and here) revealed similar skepticism of alarmist global warming claims.

According to the newly published survey of geoscientists and engineers, merely 36 percent of respondents fit the “Comply with Kyoto” model. The scientists in this group “express the strong belief that climate change is happening, that it is not a normal cycle of nature, and humans are the main or central cause.”

An egg a day lowers cardiovascular death by 18%

.
Associations of egg consumption with cardiovascular disease in a cohort study of 0.5 million Chinese adults

Quote:

Results
At baseline, 13.1% of participants reported daily consumption (usual amount 0.76 egg/day) and 9.1% reported never or very rare consumption (usual amount 0.29 egg/day). Compared with non-consumers, daily egg consumption was associated with lower risk of CVD (HR 0.89, 95% CI 0.87 to 0.92). Corresponding multivariate-adjusted HRs (95% CI) for IHD, MCE, haemorrhagic stroke and ischaemic stroke were 0.88 (0.84 to 0.93), 0.86 (0.76 to 0.97), 0.74 (0.67 to 0.82) and 0.90 (0.85 to 0.95), respectively. There were significant dose-response relationships of egg consumption with morbidity of all CVD endpoints (P for linear trend < 0.05). Daily consumers also had an 18% lower risk of CVD death and a 28% lower risk of haemorrhagic stroke death compared to non-consumers.

Fats don't kill - carbs kill!

.
According to conclusions from the recent study published in The Lancet (thanks JC for the link).

Associations of fats and carbohydrate intake with cardiovascular disease and mortality in 18 countries from five continents (PURE): a prospective cohort study

A decade-long study on 135 thousand participants, examined mortality risk versus macronutrients correlations, based on reported food-questionaires. The findings:

1) Higher carbohydrate intake was associated with 28% increased risk of total mortality (highest quintile 5 vs lowest quintile 1 category).

2) Higher intake of total fat was associated with 23% lower risk of total mortality (quintile 5 vs quintile 1).

3) Total fat and saturated and unsaturated fats were not significantly associated with risk of myocardial infarction or cardiovascular disease mortality.

Unsurprisingly, wheat and carbohydrate-pushing Australian Medical Association and fake pardon - mainstream media slammed it with unsubstantiated accusations:

'It's patently ridiculous, harmful and mean': Doctors slam celebrity chef Pete Evans' new paleo documentary that claims the 'caveman' diet can treat chronic diseases

Quote:

A new documentary by controversial celebrity chef Pete Evans which claims the paleo diet can treat chronic disease has been slammed by Australia's top doctors.
The film, The Magic Pill, claims people suffering from illnesses such as diabetes, cancer and autism can reduce their symptoms and reliance on prescription drugs by adopting the diet for just five weeks. Australian Medical Association president Michael Gannon has compared the documentary to controversial anti-vaccination film, Vaxxed, and said the two were competing 'in the awards for the films least likely to contribute to public health'. 'Elements of the discussion are just plain hurtful, harmful and mean,' Dr Gannon told The Daily Telegraph.

The AMA's outburst came after Evans stood by his outspoken views on the paleo diet during an interview on Channel Seven's Sunday Night program.
'This way of eating reverses Type 2 diabetes. And guess how quickly it takes? Six to eight weeks. Maybe three months,' he said.


Great Awakening has been going on for some time! I was regarded eccentric 19 years ago when I started eating this style - then I discovered that telling people to renounce the official "food pyramid" guidelines to cure their diseases was met with greater opposition than if I told them to renounce "Jesus". It is strange how people are addicted to carbs and to their diseases! You want to regain health - get rid of all that mainstream garbage!

Climate scam has become a real problem

.


From the blog 

“Saving The Planet” Update : Wind Turbines Destroy Local Farming Village And Bees

CLIMATE alarmism’s primary objective is to scare you and policy makers into belief such that your taxes are effortlessly diverted, with little to no scrutiny, into research grants and green schemes and scams to supposedly stop bad weather by changing the temperature of the planet. Yet, no one can ever tell you by how much the temperature will change for each dollar spent. But alas, “Saving The Planet” is far more important than how your hard-earned money is spent, right?

CLIMATE research is paid for by you in the form of government grants. And, thanks to the system of pal peer-review, the most scary studies, prefaced by “anthropogenic” are given the green light, published in science journals with results interpreted by the compliant mainstream media and delivered back to you, to scare you even more such that you will happily donate more money to the scam research.

...

THE environmental movement bangs on about how important bees are to “existence as we know it”. So, maybe this microcosm of direct bee destruction might open the eyes of a few climate luvvies as to the clear and present danger that industrial wind turbines present to, not only peoples’ livelihoods and to their local economies, but to Gaia and her most precious workers ...

Fake climate marketing

.
Der Spiegel 15/02/2018 article titled "Climate Change Disinformation. Catastrophe Business"

Desinformation zum Klimawandel; Das Geschäft mit der Katastrophe. Axel Bojanowski

English translations of the article quotes and comments are reposted after this blog:

Surprise! Spiegel Online Slams Profiteering From Climate Alarmism… Munich Re Admits: “No Climate Signal”

All have been playing it loose with the data on weather events and exaggerating (at times grossly) and with the aim of deriving profit, Spiegel reports.

German Railway: climate change as a cover for poor management

Bojanowski begins by describing how today the German Railway (Deutsche Bundesbahn) – once heralded for its outstanding punctuality and overall efficiency – has discovered how to use climate change to deflect blame away from its recent poor management, which over the years has often led to lousy service.

Over the years, the Bundesbahn has made the maintenance of its tracks a victim to cost cutting. Trees and vegetation along the tracks no longer get sufficiently cut back, and so it is common for routes to get blocked during stormy weather. What better excuse than climate change could the Deutsche Bahn have to explain all the disruptions?

Data in fact show no increasing trend in extreme weather

All the cancellations, service shutdowns and delays are of course due to ever increasing storm intensity and frequency, the Deutsche Bahn management likes to claim, and they get the full backing of the media, policymakers and alarmist climate scientists. Yet Bojanowski calls out these claims by the Bundesbahn for what they are: lame excuses based on hyped up science.

The Spiegel journalist writes that a number of scientists have shown that there has in fact been no increase in storm intensity and frequency in Europe, commenting:
That’s amazing, as many scientists anticipate fewer storms in Central Europe as a consequence of climate change.”


Munich Re bilking the public with climate hype?

Another industry caught hyping up extreme weather activity is the reinsurance industry, which insures regular insurance companies against major claims events. The reason for the added hype: justification for hefty premium increases, Bojanowski suggests.

Munich Re admits no real climate signal

One company Bojanowski cites is the world’s largest reinsurer, Munich Re, which annually publishes a report on “natural catastrophes”, in which the company likes to blame climate change, cite alarmist experts and claim there is today a “new normal”. When asked by Spiegel to comment concerning data showing that it isn’t really so, a climate expert from Munch Re was forced to admit:

The blanket statement that weather-dependent damages worldwide show a climate signal cannot be supported.”

...

Environmental companies spreading climate hype
Recently there was a panel of climate experts at the IFAT industrial trade fair for wastewater technology, which saw 3000 environmental companies participating. The panel held a “future dialog” dubbed: “Weather extremes – are we defenseless?” Bojanowski reports that the panel spoke of which weather extremes have been on the increase, but how they kept silent about this still being very much in dispute among climate scientists.
...
Unmentioned by the panel, Bojanowski writes, was the fact that the UN “could not detect any relationship between floods and storms and global warming“.
and the last but not least comment from the blog itself:

Shameless exploitation/hypocrisy

Unfortunately Spiegel — in its otherwise praiseworthy article — failed to mention two other parties who have a major stake in climate hype: the media (like Spiegel itself), who have profited immensely from spectacular climate claims, and politicians, who unabashedly exploit climate catastrophism to try to gain more control over society.

New anti-viral melanoma therapy

.

TV interview with medical doctor prof Andrzej Mackiewicz (in Polish)

Quote:

Oncologist prof. Andrzej Mackiewicz, creator of the melanoma vaccine, was a guest of "Dzien Dobry" ["Good Morning"] TVN program. It is a vaccine that heals, not just prevents melanoma! It could have helped several hundred sick people each year if it was officially registered and approved, however that is very expensive. Why is the melanoma vaccine not available to all patients? - We are scientists who have developed a medicine that works, and that seems to pose a huge problem for certain people or authorities - said prof. Mackiewicz on Good Morning TVN.

Non-interferon Hepatitis-C therapy

.

Article (in Polish)

Quote (translated):

2. What is non-interferon therapy?

The non-interferon therapy involves the use of drugs that contain substances such as ombitasvir, paritaprevir, ritonavir (1 EAN code) and dasabuvu, which have maximum efficacy in the treatment of hepatitis C.

These modern drugs can be used in patients of all ages, regardless of the stage at which they have the disease. The patient requires constant medical supervision, however, hospitalization is not needed. This means that the patient is not exposed to stress and can undergo the therapy, which lasts from 12 to 24 weeks and costs about 60,000 zl (about 17600 US$). The therapy is completely safe and does not cause side effects, and most importantly - eliminates the virus in 90 to 100 percent of patients.

Older hepatitis C treatment therapies are much longer and more expensive - they last up to 72 weeks, and their cost often exceeds 160,000zl (47,200 US$).
In addition, they cause severe side effects - patients complain of very high fever, hair loss and skin problems. The success rate of healing hepatitis C with these older therapies is 70%.

New Ice Age?

.

It is possible, the Sun is cooling!

Scientists warn of unusually cold Sun: Will we face another ice age?

Quote:

A study by the University of California San Diego has claimed that by 2050, the Sun is expected to become cool. You might think "what's the big deal," but remember that this means the solar activities that create the heat of the Sun to sustain life on Earth may diminish. And the last time it happened was in the 17th Century, when the Thames River froze. Scientists call this the "Maunder Minimum".

Physicist Dan Lubin at the university and his team studied the past event and concluded that were are in for a worse case. The Sun is expected to get much dimmer than last time and, in scientific terms, it is a "grand minimum" -- a time period in the 11-year solar cycle when the solar activities are at the lowest point.

Also read: Scientists warn of 'mini ice age' that could hit Earth and freeze major rivers by 2030

According to the study, titled Ultraviolet Flux Decrease Under a Grand Minimum from IUE Short-wavelength Observation of Solar Analogs and published in the journal Astrophysical Journal Letters, this grand minimum will be 7 percent cooler than such periods from the past.

I have to explain this. The effect if diminishing of the solar activity upon the atmophere is indirect. Even though the total energy flux is reduced by a small fraction of a percent, the total Sun light reaching the surface in some areas, especially the oceans may be reduced by a very large factor (tens percents) caused by increased cloud formation, the "cloud seeding" effect caused by increasing galactic cosmic rays flux striking the upper atmosphere. To summarize it, the causuality chain is as follows:

1) reduced Solar activity
2) reduced coronal flares
3) reduced intensity of the solar wind
4) reduced magnetic flux carried by the solar wind away from the sun out to the outer reaches of the solar system (beyond Kuiper Belt)
5) reduced solar magnetic flux means less shielding of the inner planets of the Solar System against high energy galactic particles ("Cosmic Rays")
6) less magnetic shielding means higher intensity of the Cosmic Rays seen at the Earth.
7) High energy cosmic ray particles cause microscopic condensation trails when striking the atmosphere.
8) The microscopic condensation trails cause water vapor condensation which leads to accelerated formation of clouds, accelerated - compared with the situation when there were no particle trails. Note that condensation by cosmic ray microtrails is the major factor in cloud seeding, another one are dust particles.
9) Increased rate of cloud formation causes higher average cloud coverage over the portions of the Earth surface, reflecting the Sunlight back out to space. Causing cooling of the climate.



Sea level supposedly rising but Tuvalu getting bigger!


More data points towards Global Warming being the fact-denying religion rather than the fact!

Not so long ago Tyvalu and other Pacific islands have been prominently featuring on the 3 major international Global Warming conferences: Kopenhagen, Kyoto and Paris. Their leaders have been dramatically calling upon the industrialized Western countries to reduce carbon emission to save their islands from disappearing under the ocean

There is a small problem - the islands have been growing in size!


'Sinking' Pacific nation is getting bigger: study

Quote:

The Pacific nation of Tuvalu—long seen as a prime candidate to disappear as climate change forces up sea levels—is actually growing in size, new research shows.

A University of Auckland study examined changes in the geography of Tuvalu's nine atolls and 101 reef islands between 1971 and 2014, using aerial photographs and satellite imagery.

It found eight of the atolls and almost three-quarters of the islands grew during the study period, lifting Tuvalu's total land area by 2.9 percent, even though sea levels in the country rose at twice the global average.

Co-author Paul Kench said the research, published Friday in the journal Nature Communications, challenged the assumption that low-lying island nations would be swamped as the sea rose.

Viruses more important than we realise

.
Deposition rates of viruses and bacteria above the atmospheric boundary layer

Quote:
Abstract
Aerosolization of soil-dust and organic aggregates in sea spray facilitates the long-range transport of bacteria, and likely viruses across the free atmosphere. Although long-distance transport occurs, there are many uncertainties associated with their deposition rates. Here, we demonstrate that even in pristine environments, above the atmospheric boundary layer, the downward flux of viruses ranged from 0.26 × 109 to > 7 × 109 m−2 per day. These deposition rates were 9–461 times greater than the rates for bacteria, which ranged from 0.3 × 107 to > 8 × 107 m−2 per day. The highest relative deposition rates for viruses were associated with atmospheric transport from marine rather than terrestrial sources. Deposition rates of bacteria were significantly higher during rain events and Saharan dust intrusions, whereas, rainfall did not significantly influence virus deposition. Virus deposition rates were positively correlated with organic aerosols < 0.7 μm, whereas, bacteria were primarily associated with organic aerosols > 0.7 μm, implying that viruses could have longer residence times in the atmosphere and, consequently, will be dispersed further. These results provide an explanation for enigmatic observations that viruses with very high genetic identity can be found in very distant and different environments.

Asparagus - not so good for cancer!

.

Wiki Asparagus

The Guardian article.


Asparagine bioavailability governs metastasis in a model of breast cancer

Quote:

Here we show that asparagine bioavailability strongly influences metastatic potential. Limiting asparagine by knockdown of asparagine synthetase, treatment with -asparaginase, or dietary asparagine restriction reduces metastasis without affecting growth of the primary tumour, whereas increased dietary asparagine or enforced asparagine synthetase expression promotes metastatic progression. Altering asparagine availability in vitro strongly influences invasive potential, which is correlated with an effect on proteins that promote the epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition. This provides at least one potential mechanism for how the bioavailability of a single amino acid could regulate metastatic progression.

Social studies covering up leftism vs psychoticism correlations

As was demonstrated by the forced retractions and erratum of some social studies publications on political views versus certain character traits.

Lovely! That's a kind of data obfuscation and "accidental" words reversal in conclusions, to be expected - if the authors themselves are psychotics!

This procedure was uncovered and reported by students (Steven G. Ludeke and Stig H. R. Rasmussen) for a number of publications. Which then lead to a forced retraction and erratum published by the authors. This article on Retraction Watch website describes what happened:

Conservative political beliefs not linked to psychotic traits, as study claimed

(thanks Drew Maharaj!)

Quote:

Researchers have fixed a number of papers after mistakenly reporting that people who hold conservative political beliefs are more likely to exhibit traits associated with psychoticism, such as authoritarianism and tough-mindedness.

As one of the notices specifies, now it appears that liberal political beliefs are linked with psychoticism. That paper also swapped ideologies when reporting on people higher in neuroticism and social desirability (falsely claiming that you have socially desirable qualities); the original paper said those traits are linked with liberal beliefs, but they are more common among people with conservative values.

I would like to point out a theory (originally proposed by Stan P. aka "Dozent") and some of my articles linking collectivism with the atavistic fall-back to a hierarchical primate heard society, see here.

Why everything you heard about fat is wrong

.

And why it is more important than you think?

- Because it will change the way you think!

- Because changing your nutrition away from plant and carbohydrate-based towards animal fat-based  will alter the way you act and behave!   You will be more rational, clearer, calmer, stronger and balanced!    :)

- Because what you don't know may hurt you!

- Because following a dietary advise financed by some institutions whose purpose is to sell you their products might not be your best survival strategy!  Ask yourself  why is that? 

- Because not everything that is tasty and sold to you is healthy, use reason and knowledge to discern!

- Because not every medical or health guideline you read (anywhere) has to be true nor may be  intended to help you; surprisingly, it may instead be intended to help them!

- Because not everything the scientists believe to be "true", is true!

- Because some prominent public figures who until recently or even still to this day scare you from eating natural food high in animal fats, may not hesitate from sacrificing you and your health for their own purposes, that involve "money" and "power".  Be safe and renounce these people!

Be skeptical of all dietary and medical theories including those that I may be recommending, always check them out and verify them yourself because your own life and health is at stake.  If in doubt use logic, intuition and your heart!
