  1. Re: Ex-pharma CEO pleads guilty to kickbacks to doctors for opioid prescriptions

    Good question. What was the outcome (if any) for the victims?

    And I question whether prison time for one will act as a deterrent for all the others who willingly take the risk for easy money.
  2. Re: 8 Proven Ways To Relieve Asthma Naturally

    Two things come to mind from these articles
    • It is necessary for 3 to 6 months to elapse before any improvements are demonstrable, and for the most part these seems to be small. But more...

    Re: Health Benefits of Astaxanthin

    "...protects against lipid peroxidation." I had to look that up. FYI, "Lipid peroxidation is the oxidative degradation of lipids. It is the process in which free radicals "steal" electrons from the...

    January 18, 2019

    You may not know the antioxidant astaxanthin, but you are probably more than familiar with some of its natural sources. Astaxanthin is the dark red...
  8. Re: WHO says non-vaccination a top global health threat

    Absolutely. It's important to know what the rest of the world is thinking about this topic. I'll add that better sanitation and clean potable water, especially in developing countries, could prevent...
  9. Re: Flaxseeds Protect Against Radiation Exposure

    I've posted my flaxseed recipe in the Organic Kitchen forum. I like it... but there are so many options for my midday meal that flaxseed is often forgotten. I think I'll put it on today's menu....
  10. Re: Expelled Researcher Sets Up 'New Cochrane'

    Anyone can look up Peter C. Gøtzsche's bona fides on Wikipedia. Here is his defense:

    Re: Carbs, Fibre And Ongoing Diet Wars

    I'm the odd one; I don't eat breakfast. My intermittent fasting goes from the evening meal, about 6 p.m., until noon or later the following day. So my midday breaking of the fast often features eggs...

    Re: Carbs, Fibre And Ongoing Diet Wars

    Thanks for finding that article, Grulla. That's the best explanation for what we're trying to suss out. It doesn't include the figures for resistant starch, but we already have that information. I'll...

    Re: Carbs, Fibre And Ongoing Diet Wars

    "And it must be assumed that all oats consumed by humans are cooked, not raw." Once again: the chart shows the amount for uncooked, specifically, but nowhere is there a figure for cooked!

    Re: Carbs, Fibre And Ongoing Diet Wars

    "whole grains are not digested as starch.." Fine, but I don't eat whole grains, or grains of any kind. But what about legumes and seeds? I think we need a different source.
    As for "uncooked," my...

    So are we any farther ahead? We still don't know the cause or the treatment, do we?
  16. Re: A Bit Of Meat, A Lot Of Veg - The Flexitarian Diet To Feed 10B

    This makes perfect sense. The more people raise their own food, the more practical (and versatile) it could be. A lot of people already keep a few chickens for eggs, or raise a few broilers or...
  17. Re: Looming Global Crisis Means People's Diets Must Change: Experts

    jeroldvince, not everyone does well on a vegan or vegetarian diet. Per Maurya's post, organic pastured red meat is fine. It's only when you get into CAFO meat that you get all the chemicals,...

    Re: Carbs, Fibre And Ongoing Diet Wars

    Thanks for the sources, Grulla, but I found the second one confusing. Whole oatmeal groats, uncooked, rate the highest, but no one eats them that way (except horses and sheep!) and oats appear...

    I have been practicing the "resistant starch" method with both rice and potatoes. At first I thought that reheating would negate the effect, but further research showed that it was just the opposite:...

    Boy howdy, you're right. The plow guy has been here five times (at $20 a pop) and we are barely halfway through January. Plus there's another big snow drop on the way for this weekend!
  25. Re: WIFI Radiation Could Increase The Risk Of Miscarriages

    Maurya, I think people's sensitivity to this sort of thing varies immensely. Some people (like you and housemate) seem immune to it; at the other extreme are people who are forced to settle in...
