The extra virgin olive oil could prevent and cure diabetes
A group of researchers at the university La Sapienza in Rome published an interesting study in the journal Nutrition & Diabetes. The research results were also presented these days in the presence of the Chancellor Eugenio Gaudio. Francesco Violi is the coordinator of this study.
The study has shown that olive oil reduces blood sugar and increases insulin levels in healthy people opening up interesting perspectives on its use in patients with diabetes, in which the postprandial blood glucose can be very high and potentially damaging to the cardiovascular system.
In all the studies published until now it had never been identified the mechanism by which the olive oil interfere with glucose metabolism. On the contrary, in this research, glucose and lipid profile of 25 randomized  healthy subjects was analyzed, by experimenting with a "cross-over" methodology, the administration of a dose of 10 grams of olive oil in a meal with typical Mediterranean food. The researchers tested the effects of this administration in a lunch in which there was this extra virgin olive oil (first study) and in a lunch in which there was the seed oil (second study). Before the meal and 2 hours after,  the carbohydrate profile of the subjects (glucose, insulin, and incretins) and lipid profile (cholesterol, HDL cholesterol and triglicerididemia) were studied.
The research results have shown that two hours after the meal, the subjects taking olive oil had significantly lower values of blood sugar and higher levels of insulin; besides it was recorded a significant increase of incretin hormones and a significant reduction in serum cholesterol too. 
I have always said that eating according to the Mediterranean diet is very healthy! :))

Anybody else notice that Bernie loves to talk about the rich and how bad they are, but fails to mention that his net worth is in the millions (and this is cash, not physical assets)?

The Conservatives new attack ads on Justin Trudeau are out.
I break down what they are all about and why the Conservatives say #Trudeau  isn't up to the job.
Share this if you think Trudeau isn't up for the job.

SOTU, Deflate-Gate, American Sniper... and more! Happy weekend, y'all.
Not much more to say about Obama's deflated football of a State of the Union speech, but is there some kind of way we can float Obama and Michael Moore away on a one-person life raft somewhere? And...

Liberals are increasingly religious about their own liberalism, treating it like a comprehensive view of reality and the human good

The major problem here is the author uses "libertarian" and "liberal" interchangeably... My views are often coincident with libertarian ideology, but few people would consider me liberal in the contemporary sense of the word.

So, my Nexus 7 updated to 5.0.1, and I did the little security check from my laptop yesterday.  This morning my Postbox email program has had all my separate email accounts merged into one giant inbox.  If I'd have wanted this, I could have switched to Opera a couple of years ago.  

Now , how do I roll this back?
