    A politcal moment

    Politics is anathema to the work done here, at least directly, but we ARE today in a political moment. I find this to be a worthy overview which efficiently sums up our political moment.

    tbp, thanks for that helpful comment

    Much more helpful than Bobo's.  Yes, I probably did not chose the best study.

    Yes, the quality of dietary lipid consumption is important and yes, controlling and limiting sugary and starchy carbohydrate consumption is important but a steadily growing body of research supports the contention that animal fats are a significant problem with prostate cancer, especially the more lethal advanced and metastatic types.  I don't care where you are raising your animals on the planet (or hunting or fishing for them, including the Arctic).  The fact remains that they will be exposed to a certain level of toxic chemicals through the air, rainwater, soil, etc. despite the most pristine feeding and watering practices, and concentrate those toxins more in their tissues, especially the fatty tissues and certain organs (but also including muscle via intramuscular fat) than any plant would, thereby increasing the exposure risk of the person eating them.

    Really

    It sounds to me like you’re spending on a credit card with reckless abandon and telling me how pleasant the experience was before you get the bill. You’re absolutely right there is a hell of a lot of  “luxury” energy expense that will not affect quality of life dramatically if lost but it sure will affect the economy as it is currently set up; just ask businesses reliant upon tourism as I have what lockdowns have done. And zoom etc can and will save a significant amount of energy and likely “kick the can”. However, claiming that there will be no economic consequences because the “luxury” can disappear strikes me as delusional I’m afraid.

    Bobo, have you read the many many others?

    This is just one example.  Rather than just Duding me (which I hate), why don't you tell me exactly why it's garbage and why all the other studies saying the same thing are garbage.  That'd be much more helpful than the Dude BS.

    frosty, thanks for the reference

    A friend gives me his old Life Extension magazines and I've read them for years.  I've also practiced fasting for years.  In fact, I had done a 7 day water fast just prior to my diagnosis, hoping against hope that it was just BPH and the fasting would make a difference as it had in the past.  Unfortunately, nothing changed at that time but I remain a proponent of the multiple benefits of fasting.  In fact, my son-in-law, who is a pastor, is preaching on that very subject today.

    All of it

    If it's so hard to cut back on transportation because of food, perhaps you have been asleep for Covid? Food and infrastructure are working just fine, and we've gone way past peak oil during the pandemic. We've done the experiment, and it's clear that most transport is flat-out luxury or commuting easily replaced by Zoom meetings. We could easily cut our oil consumption to a tiny fraction of what we use even today under Covid without quality-of-life cost - look at Europe. And it looks like we peaked in 2020 without the end of the world as we know it anyway.

    Beware of well- (or other-)intentioned studies using false assumptions

    @ao
    Or a big problem, depending upon the type of cancer you have. While most cancers feed off sugar, with prostate cancer, the preferred substrate is fats, animal fats in particular.

    Here's just one of many studies attesting to that fact:

    https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4277017/

    I haven't read or analyzed that "The Role of Dietary Fat throughout the Prostate Cancer Trajectory" study (only the abstract) or any other, but are you accounting for the standardized false belief that dietary fat/cholesterol is bad and should be avoided? Are they accounting for the major confounding factor of people eating high sugar/carb diets?

    The abstract falsely says that "Dietary fat is a fundamental contributor to obesity" and suggests they're comparing "high intake of dietary fat, especially, high intake of animal and saturated fats" with "a low-fat diet, specifically low in saturated fat", seemingly without any consideration as to the other macronutrients profiles. People who eat low saturated fats tend to also avoid a high sugar diet because they believe that both saturated/animal fats and sugar are bad for their health, while people who eat "high saturated fats" also tend to eat high carbs (e.g. SAD). Worse yet, some/much of that saturated fat is gonna be trans/hydrogenated fats. Doesn't look like a study free from constraining false assumptions (again based only on the abstract though).

    EUA for mRNA

    The purpose of the all treatment suppression was to roll out the mRNA injection without FDA approval which they have been trying to get for a decade and have failed. Now that it is being widely distributed they can keep on using it regardless of the terms of the EUA. It's a done deal, mRNA is with us now for better or worse. What could go wrong?

    "Recognizing the broad potential of mRNA science, we set out to create an mRNA technology platform that functions very much like an operating system on a computer. It is designed so that it can plug and play interchangeably with different programs. In our case, the "program” or “app” is our mRNA drug - the unique mRNA sequence that codes for a protein."

    Dude, this study is garbage! Have you even read it?

    the quick fix..

    Yes..seems everyone wants this these days..

    The reason Imho... is that todays life is overly cluttered..

    The internet while great in so many ways,has  created a fast forward in evolutionary  knowledge transfer..at break neck speed..

    I could be wrong ..but I find this.(ALWAYS ON)... life we live now ...to be a bit much to keep up with ...

    Sometimes you have to step back and take things in and contemplate..digest...even ruminate if you will...on lifes chapters..

    We as a society have forgotten how to do this..with all the texting and tweeting and really...just keeping up with it all....well... its tedious...not that I use a twitter or anything....but just an observation.

    WE have the world at our fingertips..and unfortunetely have lost the art of simple quality human exchanges that  not only  are healthy ..but are the way we were designed to flourish.

    The absence of this.. (shucked to the side) (actual  old school  human communications..). takes a toll on ones health...in more ways then the younger generations ,take note of.

    Was at a winery apple picking and wine sipping with my wife.. daughter and her freinds last fall..it was a gas...lots of fun...but...

    I noticed all the younger folk at other tables..were tasting their wines ....together.... but individually..they were all on separate conversations with other people on their cell phones..??

    This was everywhere...

    Except our table of course..told the wife ..this is NUTS..

    Why even make a date to go somewhere with someone when half or more of the time ..your not really with them!

    no laughing..no camaraderie...just faces buried in cell phones.??.and fingers moving furiously...between sips...

    oh..... I forgot..it was not all bad..They did take time out for

    .the redeeming...  quick group selfie..to prove they actually DID go to the winery...

     

    sigh...

    Whats this world coming to..??

    Yes..this lockdown unfortunately...is bad for human relations..and health...(but its temporary)...(we hope)...but I believe cell phones themselves and the way people use them ...for many years..has been entirely more damaging in many ways,,
