"But the new expert committee, commissioned by the Institute of Medicine at the behest of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, said there was no rationale for anyone to aim for sodium levels below 2,300 milligrams a day. The group examined new evidence that had emerged since the last such report was issued, in 2005.
“As you go below the 2,300 mark, there is an absence of data in terms of benefit and there begin to be suggestions in subgroup populations about potential harms,” said Dr. Brian L. Strom, chairman of the committee and a professor of public health at the University of Pennsylvania. He explained that the possible harms included increased rates of heart attacks and an increased risk of death." #health #unconventionalwisdom

So, I'm on a tour where they have clearly marked, in the printed literature, departure at 4:30 pm. I get there at 4:15, only to be told by the resort owner "your group already left! Let me try to arrange something for you!" And it's clear he's both surprised and calling in a favor. Would you trust the tour company for future shore visits?

"Sharon joins a growing number of dietitians and nutritionists who understand that in this new age, it is no longer sufficient to discuss only carbohydrates, fat, proteins, and calories–we must now incorporate awareness of what agribusiness has done to our food. Specifically, they turned modern semi-dwarf wheat into an appetite stimulant that fattens but also inflames, triggers autoimmunity, erodes the gastrointestinal lining, and exerts other mind effects." #health

Assign the letters JHMLCNVTURISEYAPO to the integers -8 to 8 and you get:
S+U+N = 0
M+E+R+C+U+R+Y = 1
V+E+N+U+S = 2
E+A+R+T+H = 3
M+A+R+S = 4
J+U+P+I+T+E+R = 5
S+A+T+U+R+N = 6
U+R+A+N+U+S = 7
N+E+P+T+U+N+E = 8
P+L+U+T+O = 9
E+R+I+S = 10
thus proving that Pluto is a planet. :)

"Fat accumulation in the human body is regulated primarily by the hormone insulin**; we secrete insulin primarily in response to the carbohydrates we consume. These facts support an endocrinological view of obesity as a hormonal disorder caused by carbohydrate-rich foods, particularly refined grains and sugars, elevating insulin levels.
Clinical trials repeatedly demonstrate that obese individuals who consciously restrict carbohydrates but not calories lose weight — often without hunger — while experiencing significant improvements in heart-disease and diabetes risk factors. Those of us who have lost weight ourselves and/or witnessed the effect of these diets on our patients can confirm that this is exactly what happens." #health #lchf

"From the start, our dietary recommendations have been based as much on politics as on science. The first set of dietary goals was written by political staffers, not scientists or nutritionists.1 They were based on the as-yet-unproven theory that reducing dietary fat would reduce heart disease, diabetes, and obesity.2 They directed Americans to consume less fat and more carbohydrate.
These guidelines have remained remarkably consistent for the past thirty years and Americans have done their best to follow them. We have lowered our fat intake, and we have increased our carbohydrates (Figure 1). Since the first guidelines, the number of obese Americans has more than doubled (Figure 2); the number with type-2 diabetes has tripled.
The dramatic rise in obesity in America began in the early 1980s after the release of the first Dietary Guidelines for Americans, after which Americans gradually... more »

A view from the wing's take on the FAA deliberate and unnecessary "work slowdown"...
"A 4% cut to budget, even normalized across an entire year, does not have to wreak havoc on the traveling public unless the FAA chooses to make those cuts in the most painful way they possibly can in order to score a political point.
It’s an open question how much damage they will do to the U.S. economy, and an open question who will get the blame for it from the electorate. But there is no reason for this to happen other than cynical politics, and those involved should truly be ashamed of themselves."
