Death by donut

I don’t mean that you will be struck down by simply stepping into a Dunkin’ Donuts. I mean that donuts and others things wheat and grains will substantially abbreviate y0ur life, or at least make your time on earth a lot more miserable. I’ve been accused of exaggeration to get the no-wheat, no-grain message through. But if you see what I see every day, I think that you would agree: The consumption of wheat and grains is entirely inappropriate for humans; we exchange near-term calories for deterioration of long-term health that takes numerous forms. And when you see lives completely turned around by banishing this thing that should never been added to the human diet in the first place, let alone endorsed by all official providers of nutritional advice, you can’t help but appreciate that wheat and related grains underlie an extraordinary amount of human illness and suffering. I’m picking on donuts here specifically, as they represent a combination of so much that has gone wrong in the modern diet: the proliferation of wheat flour and sugar. What potentially fatal diseases have been associated with consumption of wheat and sugar? Well, that’s awfully easy, like picking on a three-year old—it almost seems unfair. Among the potentially fatal diseases caused by wheat and grain consumption are: Coronary heart disease–Oodles of small LDL particles form after the consumption of the amylopectin A of grains and the fructose + glucose of s...

ConclusionsFindings suggest that self-harm behavior and psychiatric disorders are associated with increased ED utilization for subsequent chronic disease-related ED utilization. Chronic disease among adolescent psychiatric patients should be attended to, potentially involving new models of clinical follow-up care.

KerryAbstractThe study objectives were to determine assessors' (n = 256) preference for corned beef, produced with sequential reductions in NaCl concentrations and to determine if preference was affected by assessor age. The use of a salt replacer such as potassium lactate was also assessed. The youngest age cohort disliked samples containing the highest level of NaCl, whereas the oldest age cohort did not detect differences between samples. The most negatively perceived sampl...

Conclusions: If perceived QOL is used as an indicator of the success of intervention programs, certain factors accompanying the adoption of measures for the prevention of falls may mask the results (failure or success) of the intervention. Because most determinants of QOL are modifiable and physical activity has the potential to improve QOL, this research suggests that physical activity programs should be a component of health care for older adults.

Conclusions: The TMST has been widely used since first introduced, albeit not always as originally described. There is considerable evidence for the validity of the test, but its reliability and responsiveness are not yet firmly established.

Conclusions: Ambulatory PACE participants have average levels of physical function that are dangerously close to thresholds thought to indicate vulnerability for further disability development, hospitalization, and nursing home admission. Both dementia and comorbidity burden are associated with declines in physical function, and the interaction between these risk factors is a telling indicator to functional decline in higher-level ambulatory tasks. PACE program clinicians can use this information to better identify participants at risk for limited physical function. Further research should investigate consequences of fun...

In this study, to estimate the states that are not directly available from the Bergman minimal model a high-order sliding mode observer is proposed. Then fractional calculus is combined with sliding mode control (SMC) for blood glucose regulation to create more robustness performance and make more degree of freedom and flexibility for the proposed method. Then an adaptive fractional-order SMC is proposed. The adaptive SMC protect controller against disturbance and uncertainties while the fractional calculus provides robust performance. Numerical simulation verifies that the proposed controllers have better performance in t...
