Yeh what a track record. Turns out they were wrong on cholesterol, wrong on salt, wrong on margarine substitute for butter, wrong on eggs, wrong on aerobic exercise [thanks, Jane Fonda, for the knee/hip replacements all over America], and now it appears cancer has nothing to do with lifestyle such as food/exercise but is simply tough luck in most cases. http://www.whitehousedossier.com/2015/02/21/michelle-leads-government-kitchen/
Oh and that nasty coal that causes asthma all over Appalachia and America? Eh, not so much. Better look at cockroaches in your house. Which isn’t really new news, it’s been cited for many years that the #1 trigger for asthma is cockroaches in the home, #2 is mice/rats, which explains why there’s so much asthma in inner cities. Of course, some people worry about the souls of cockroaches so that could be a problem…. http://www.canberratimes.com.au/act-news/vegetarian-restaurateur-did-not-want-to-kill-cockroaches-on-moral-grounds-20150201-1313kf.html
A small victory over the nanny-state http://hotair.com/archives/2015/02/20/caveman-blogger-wins-right-to-blog-advice-about-food-and-fitness-without-a-state-license/
Forget about body-busting aerobics and running, work on getting strong. Here’s a month-long guide based on the Mark Rippetoe method of free weights. http://www.muscleandfitness.com/workouts/workout-routines/4-week-guide-starting-strength
This sounds gross but fecal transplants have had quite the success in immune-compromised patients fighting super infections, such as the elderly with C difficile. Now evidence begins to emerge that transplants from fecal-healthy but obese donors cause obesity in the sick recipients and transplants from fecal-healthy but skinny donors cause weight loss in the sick recipients. The gut, your brain’s in there, or at least some brain cells. http://boingboing.net/2015/02/07/turd-transplant-leads-to-rapid.html and http://www.bbc.com/news/health-31168511
As for the panel admiration of organic vegetarian diet, looks as though organic farming [which I use in my home garden] really is just a niche. http://geneticliteracyproject.org/2015/02/18/organic-agricultures-low-yields-arent-sustainable/
And that anti-GMO is anti-science rhetoric. Not only did the former co-founder of Greenpeace admit they made up the GMO ‘problem’ to raise money, there’s zero scientific evidence – even from enviros – that GMO is harmful and can tremendously increase much-needed yields in hungry nations. GMO is a First World problem that hurts Third World nations who can’t toy-shop at Whole Foods.
And he’s gone, folks. The charges of sexual harassment there’s now 2 accusers have resulted in the chakra-squeezing resignation of the UN IPCC head Rajendra Pachauri . The story hit WUWT and other anti-AGW sites last weekend but didn’t make the MSM. He’s gone amid an outpouring of admission that climate change was indeed his religion. Hey some of us have bee saying that a long time, buddy. What a nasty piece of work he was, and no scientist, has a poli sci degree, like gore. http://wattsupwiththat.com/2015/02/24/un-ipcc-climate-head-rajendra-pachauri-resigns-amid-sexual-harassment-allegations/ and http://www.climatedepot.com/2015/02/24/un-ipcc-chief-admits-global-warming-is-religious-issue-it-is-my-religion-and-my-dharma/ and http://www.climatedepot.com/2015/02/24/climate-depots-morano-statement-on-pachauris-resignation-the-ipcc-is-quietly-popping-champagne-corks-today-pachauri-gone-can-only-be-good-news-for-the-un-ipcc/
