Mechanisms Linking Red Meat Consumption and Cardiovascular Disease Risk
A diet containing red meat comes with a higher risk of atherosclerosis and consequent cardiovascular disease, this much is well known. Researchers here look through epidemiological data in order to assess which are the more relevant of the mechanisms known to contribute to this relationship between diet and the development of fatty lesions in blood vessel walls. Their analysis suggests cholesterol level is not a relevant link, while mechanisms leading to increased chronic inflammation are important, as is the fact that red meat leads to a gut microbiome that produces significant TMAO, a metabolite that in turn negatively a...

Lumen: World ’s First Device and App for Real-time Metabolic Feedback
Lumen is the first device and app available to anyone that provides real-time feedback on whether you’re burning carbohydrates or fats. These measurements are usually only made for athletes or patients through special testing centers, hospitals, or clinics, but with Lumen they are now available to everyone, anywhere. Nutrition is a very individualized topic, while metabolism is just as nuanced – one size does not fit all when it comes to diet and nutrition plans – and that’s why dieticians and nutrition coaches can play an important role in health and well-being. However, a personalized diet comes with a need fo...

poem
 Love is the GuideLove is the guide that takes us Deep beneath uncharted seasPast the white skeletons of coralPast the sunken Clipper shipsWith their holds of briny treasuresBeyond the penetrance of lightWhere the only non darknessEmits from the bioluminescence Of undulating alien creatures Stay right here, love instructs us,I ’ll bring oxygen and masks.And we do.  We like it hereWe like this sinking feeling Of a world pressed tightly against usA pressure that could crush us.Love always looks back onceOn its way back to the surface And smiles at our trusting facesAs we exhale the last b...

WTO Steps Back from the Abyss of Irrelevance … but Crucial Issues Remain Unresolved
James BacchusAfter pulling an all ‐​nighter in Geneva, the 164 members of the World Trade Organization pulled a few paces back from the abyss of trade irrelevance in the conclusion of their long‐​delayed and much‐​anticipated 12th ministerial conference. For only the second time since the establishment of the institutio n in 1995, they were able to conclude a multilateral trade agreement. Indeed, they concludedseveral. This alone is worthy of applause amid the current concatenation of crises from climate change, covid, and military conflict. Because of the success in simply concluding these agreements, the WT...

Satan and the Stolen IFs: A Teaching Story
 Satan and the Stolen IFs: A Teaching StoryOne dull night in hell, an under-demon went up to Satan with an idea.“We’re getting too much resistance to converting new Christians into new devils—except, of course, in churches that preach the Easy Gospel (those are the ones we call "easy-in, easy-out.")  Research indicates that in those churches where a set of moral and spiritual values (fromthat book) is not emphasized, the evangelistic message is watered down and presented as not having any universal behavioral application. But it makes it easy to call oneself a Christian. The termChristian is no longer a syn...

Russian Public Opinion on the Ukraine War: Perspectives from the American Experience
John MuellerSince World War II, the United States has conducted extended wars in Korea, Vietnam, Afghanistan, and Iraq. Whether the Russian effort in Ukraine will be similarly extended has yet to be seen. However, should that come about, evidence about public opinion from America ’s wars suggests lessons—and non-lessons—for assessing Russian opinion on the war in Ukraine.The comparison suggests that, after a rally-round-the flag effect at the outset of the war, a decline of support is to be expected regardless of the effects of media coverage, antiwar demonstrations, censorship and propaganda efforts, or military hap...

Sugar and Mental Health
Sugar tastes amazing and is in so many products that most people aren’t even aware of how much they are consuming daily.  Most people are aware that sugar isn’t a healthy food, but may not realize how detrimental sugar is to your overall health.  More recent research is showing a strong link between mental health and diet, suggesting that there is a two-way street between our bellies and our brains. What has sugar in it? When people talk about sugar, the first thing that comes to mind is the white, granulated stuff that the Brits pour into their tea.  However, there are many forms of sugar...

Fight Aging! Newsletter, April 25th 2022
We examined central genetic and environmental lifespan regulators (putative anti-aging interventions, PAAIs; the following PAAIs were examined: mTOR loss-of-function, loss-of-function in growth hormone signaling, dietary restriction) for a possible countering of the signs and symptoms of aging. Importantly, in our study design, we included young treated groups of animals, subjected to PAAIs prior to the onset of detectable age-dependent phenotypic change. In parallel to our studies in mice, we assessed genetic variants for their effects on age-sensitive phenotypes in humans. We observed that, surprisingly, many PAAI...
