As an experiment, two endurance athletes decided to remove sugar from their diet for 90 days to see how it would affect their training, mood, and performance. Half way through, here is what they have experienced.

+Andy O I had a horrific blood sugar crash on it on the first two days of the south beach diet. Doc wasn't too happy. I found that I'm better off increasing my fruits and veggies than trying to cut out carbs.

Lung cancer was never much of a detterent to smokers, i don't see nut cancer as being one for testosterone and other supplement users.

" it has been carefully written to make clear that 1) businesses can use it against 2) civil-rights suits brought by individuals."

The new state law has been publicly sold with the claim that it is “nothing new,” but shows every sign of having been carefully designed to put new obstacles in the path of equality.

This may just be one of the best things I've read on the internet in a loooooong time. Definitely all day. So good that I wish I'd written it. 
When’s the last time you made a peanut butter and jelly sandwich and put it in a backpack for a day out? If it was recent, congratulations on your satisfaction with that food choice. If it was not so recent, please allow me to ask: Why has it been so long? Maybe you forgot that a peanut butter and

an article with lots of primary research data and intelligent points... granted I'm sure it makes some people angry and others feel too comfortable, but both groups need to be objective and rational in face of evidence IMHO.  

the article does a nice job of both pointing out cherry picking and looking past it.
Many people cite a recent study linking increased protein intake to higher mortality rates. But a closer look at the research tells a different story.

+Stripes The Tiger yes no of course but not all of it...  complicated, that said:

Driving force for lots of process food is the promise of "Low calorie, low fat, low sodium, no work, just heat it up and be healthy"

it is so multi-faceted but with equal weight that it is best to spread the blame out equally.

I'm not dissagreeing with you, but the push for avoiding red meat, avoiding fat and salt and cholesterol are all horribly misquided reccomendations, and can't be ignored by the processed food issue.

Most streets where I do filter are usually two lanes going each direction, or a single lane with parked cars along the side and those typically have enough room to maneuver around. I don't filter when I'll be too close to brushing mirrors, or if I try to weave in and out of stopped cars, only when there's at least a half car length or more between them. Occasionally I'll filter on a two lane with parked cars on either side but in those instances there's no bike lane and I'll pretty much take the lane as I ride through the intersection when the light changes. Most of the time, cars will give me my three feet when they pass and I'm still well out of the door zone to my right. I think it all depends on the roads, and doing it in such a manner that you're not endangering yourself or requiring drivers to be observant of your behavior. I see lots of pretty reckless folks filtering in a pretty unsafe manner. I may filter but I always stop at the light or stop sign before I move on through an intersection.
