Dr. Kummerow, A Pioneer in The Science Against Trans Fats
Dr. Kummerow, now 100 years old, was the pioneer who raised the flag about the deadly trans-fats in modern foods such as some vegetable oils and margarine. It was an uphill battle. When he spoke in favour of eggs and the fact that dietary cholesterol ought not to be demonised, he lost his research funding. After 60 years on, the FDA is now coming around.

CNN reports that the FDA has given food manufacturers 3 years to change from trans fats:

Case report: Type 1 diabetes mellitus successfully managed with the Paleolithic ketogenic diet: http://www.ijcasereportsandimages.com/archive/2014/010-2014-ijcri/CR-10435-10-2014-clemens/ijcri-1043510201435-toth-full-text.php 

This case study of a 19-year old newly diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes shows he was put on insulin a few weeks and then put on a real foods-based Paleo ketogenic diet. He was able to come completely off of his insulin (so maybe his beta cell function wasn't totally compromised) and started making insulin on his own. THIS IS HUGE that could warrant more research. Great to see keto Paleo shown in such a positive light in a research journal.
Type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM) patients are usually instructed to follow a low fat/high carbohydrate diet. A few studies in literature, however, reported metabolic benefits and sustainability of carbohydrate restricted diets. Herein, we present a case of a 19-year-old male with newly diagnosed T1DM. The patient was first put on an insulin regime. Twenty days later, he shifted towards the paleolithic ketogenic diet and was able to discontinue ins...

Excellent Debate On The Banting Diet
The establishment feels threatened. The new mode of sharing info will make it impossible to keep the blinders on. Just a matter of a few years rather than decades.

Tobacco Firms Being Asked To Give Back Their Profits
Occasionally you read of Tobacco firms being asked to pay huge damages to those who have been affected by their products despite the Surgeon General's warning. Personal responsibility seems not to be enough excuse.  Will there be a day in the future that sugar firms will asked to pay for all the metabolic damage that sugar supposedly causes? Not anytime soon, I think.

A Canadian court orders three tobacco companies to pay C$15.5bn (£8bn, $12bn) - the largest award for damages in the country's history.

Trans-Fats: Once Thought To Be Great
Trans-Fats were once considered superior to natural fats (eg, margarine versus butter). Now considered not to be safe but may still be found in foods that you may not expect.

http://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-33155176
Trans-fats are unsafe to eat and must be banned from the food supply within three years, US regulators have said - but where are

Efforts Under Way To Arrest Bashir

This is a direct challenge to Zuma and the AU. Let them find another occasion to arrest him, not this.

Will Changing One's Race Become As Acceptable In Future As Sexuality Change Has Become?

Rachel, a blonde living as an African-American is outed by her parents. With the exception of her ancestry, her life has been in the main, black.

She will argue, I feel like, have always felt like an African. And when she takes a genetic therapy to darken her skin and straighten her hair? It's a brave new world ahead of us.

A Surgeon Writes To Spanish Ambassador After Being Denied A Visa
He implies: "It's OK if you don't want me in your country, but to consider me a flight risk? Fleeing to where in economically challenged Spain from my comforts and privileges in Ghana?" One angry man.

Excellent perspective on food and exercise by Aseem Malhotra, Consultant Cardiologist. He says it's the food, "You can’t outrun a bad diet". He highlights the role of added sugar in the obesity epidemic and the culpability of the food industry.
The obesity problem has little to do with our sedentary lifestyles.
