//Weight loss

The author of a new obesity book says we shouldn't try to lose weight. She's wrong.

"Weight loss can work when you cut calories in a way you like and can sustain, and focus on eating more healthfully."

A lot of weight loss fails because most people try unsustainable diets or buy into insane fads that have no chance of working in the long term. But this doesn't indict all diets.


The book, Body of Truth, perpetuates weight-loss and obesity myths.

The Myth of High-Protein Diets

"The debate is not as simple as low-fat versus low-carb.Research shows that animal protein may significantly increase the risk of premature mortality from all causes, among them cardiovascular disease, cancer and Type 2 diabetes. Heavy consumption of saturated fat and trans fats may double the risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease."
Sugar isn’t the only villain. The hazards of meat are understated.

Identical twins in Finland who shared the same sports and other physical activities as youngsters but different exercise habits as adults soon developed quite different bodies and brains, according to a fascinating new study that highlights the extent to which exercise shapes our health, even in people who have identical genes and nurturing.

I hope you DON'T step on a Lego. 

The science of why stepping on Legos makes you want to die

There are a few factors that come together to make this such a painful experience, wrote Karl Smallwood of Today I Found Out (via Yahoo). First of all, the sole of the foot is highly sensitive to pain (and tickling), because of the many nerve endings there that convey information and help keep the body balanced.

And those plastic blocks are designed to be pretty astonishingly hard, with sharp corners to boot. You could apply 950 lbs, or stack 375,000 lego bricks, before one would crack. That means that as your foot stomps down on a block, the plastic doesn’t crack or crumble, its tiny evil ridges remaining intact as they dig into the ball of your foot.
And why it's more painful for you than for your kid.

It depends on what lego piece it is. If it's vezon's cape, then you would have to have fibromialgia for that to hurt. If it's Pridak's head/mask thing, then....... You are screwed.

//Insulin

Why Isn't There Any Cheap, Generic Insulin?

"This is a big issue. Some patients simply cannot afford to pay for the insulin that keeps their blood sugar down, even people who have health insurance."

"If insulin prices remain out of reach for some, the health care system will end up paying more in hospitalizations and treatments for complications related to undertreated or untreated diabetes."

New research examines why people with diabetes who depend on injections of lifesaving insulin still have no cheaper generic options to treat their disease.

Beautiful Unfolding Kinetic Lights That Bloom like Flowers

This evolutionary mechanism, called nyctinasty, inspired Studio DRIFT to design the Shylight, a kinetic light fixture that opens dramatically during a 30 foot (9 meter) fall. The motion mimics the same action of a blooming flower or the billowing of a parachute. A collection of Shylights were just permanently installed at Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam.

Monsanto Says It’s ‘Outraged’ by WHO Cancer Risk Report

Monsanto Co. said it’s “outraged” by the World Health Organization’s assessment that its Roundup weedkiller probably causes cancer, the latest defense by the world’s biggest seed company of its best-selling product.

Monsanto wrote WHO Director General Margaret Chan on Friday to “request an urgent meeting” to find ways to “rectify this highly questionable review and conclusion,” according to a copy of the letter obtained by Bloomberg News.

“It is our understanding that IARC participants purposefully chose to disregard dozens of studies and publicly available regulatory assessments that support the conclusion that glyphosate does not pose a human health risk,” Philip Miller, Monsanto vice president for global regulatory affairs, said in the letter.

//Finland

Goodbye, math and history: Finland wants to abandon teaching subjects at school

"No more of an hour of history followed by an hour of chemistry. The idea aims to eliminate one of the biggest gripes of students everywhere: “What is the point of learning this?” Now, each subject is anchored to the reason for learning it."

Finland already has one of the best school education systems. It always ranks near the top in mathematics, reading, and science in the prestigious PISA rankings (the 2012 list, pdf) by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development. Teachers in other countries flock to its schools to learn from a country that is routinely praised as just a really, really wonderful place to live.

But the country is not resting on its laurels. Finland is considering its most radical overhaul of basic education yet—abandoning teaching by subject for teaching by phenomenon. Traditional lessons such as English Literature and Physics are already being phased out among 16-year-olds in schools in Helsinki.
No more of an hour of history followed by an hour of chemistry.

They should study this.
Russia?
Why are the fools in Washington doing screwing with #Russia?
THEY #CONTROL ENOUGH #NUCLEAR #WEAPONS TO BLOW UP THE #U.S. and # EUROPE IN LESS THAN AN HOUR!
Are they crazy? I hear nothing but Islamist #terrorism BULLSHIT. The so called #terrorists are punks and not much of a threat to the U.S. or Europe. They are no threat what so ever when compared to Russia!!!

The rude megalomania of the war Mongers besides making no sense, is dangerous beyond imagination. These religious #Apocalyptic #Zealots are just as #Crazy as #Zionist in Israel and the Scumbags of Isis in Iraq and Syria and they #Madmen in Iran. These nut jobs think destroying the world is all part of God's Great plan. They are all going to Heaven and don't give a shit about you and me and the rest of us or the creatures of the Earth. The people are so beaten down by corporate tyranny and Media's lies that they just don't pay attention to the none stop nonsense. 

Is everybody drunk and high and doped on prescription drugs that they are helpless?

Wake the fuck up fools!

//Whiter teeth

What is the healthiest and most effective way to whiten your teeth?

"The light doesn’t really do anything, but the marketing behind it is so powerful.”

There is no shortage of ways to treat tooth discoloration: strips, rinses, brush-on gels and toothpastes sold at pharmacies; bleaching treatments at the dentist; trays bought at the dentist’s office for home use. The bottom line is all these methods work, but some require patience, and others a tolerance for painful sensitivity. And results will be only temporary.

//Breastfeeding

About That Breastfeeding Study

"Measuring either—intelligence or success—is tricky because, like happiness, they're difficult to quantify in meaningful terms. And though breastfeeding may play a role in how a kid turns out, 30 years of parenting surely has more to do with what kind of adult a baby becomes."

Breastfed babies may grow up to have higher intelligence and make more money than their formula-fed peers. That was the conclusion of a new study out of Brazil, and published in The Lancet this week, which found positive associations between breastfeeding, higher IQ, longer schooling, and higher adult income among a group of babies tracked for 30 years.
We know breast milk is good for babies, but there are serious questions about recent research that suggests breastfed infants grow up to have higher IQs and more income.

//International Happiness Day

Happiness is a great metric for success, but how do we measure it in an unequal world?

Today, March 20, was dubbed International Happiness Day by the United Nations back in 2012. Designating a day for a state of mind was designed to recognize “the relevance of happiness and well-being as universal goals and aspirations in the lives of human beings around the world,” and the importance of making happiness a goal of public policy, the UN said.
