The Internet Brought Dick Whitman Back to Life With Jokes After That Emmys Shout Out
During his big moment, This Is Us star and TV superfan Sterling K. Brown gushed that Dick Whitman once held the same Emmy statue before he did. Naturally, the sneaky Mad Men reference immediately took on a life of its own online. Brown — who also praised Walter White from Breaking Bad in his Emmy acceptance speech — was referencing the birth name of Don Draper, the main character in the hit AMC drama . (The character changed his name to reinvent himself after serving in the army.) At the sound of everyone’s favorite escaped Pennsylvania farm boy turned creative director genius, people went nuts.

Could a Mediterranean diet be as good as drugs for acid reflux?
Conclusion The results of this relatively small cohort study seem to show that a plant-based Mediterranean diet with alkaline water is equally good as PPI medication at treating acid reflux symptoms when people also follow standard advice to cut out certain things from their diet. This might suggest that the first port of call for people with gastro-oesophageal reflux could be to try a Mediterranean diet before going on PPI medication, to avoid potential side effects. There are, however, some limitations to this research: Cohort studies can only show links and cannot prove definite cause and effect, and retrospective coh...

Nutrition has benefits for brain network organization, new research finds
(University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign) Nutrition has been linked to cognitive performance, but researchers have not pinpointed what underlies the connection. A new study by University of Illinois researchers found that monounsaturated fatty acids -- a class of nutrients found in olive oils, nuts and avocados -- are linked to general intelligence, and that this relationship is driven by the correlation between MUFAs and the organization of the brain's attention network.

Conclusion This research appears to show that there's some association between following a vegetarian diet and a greater reduction in body mass and subfascial fat. But this study has a number of limitations, and the conclusions drawn by the researchers should be interpreted cautiously. There was lower adherence to the diet in the conventional diet group than the vegetarian one. This means the finding of a greater reduction in body mass in the vegetarian group is unsurprising. The thigh was the only part of the body where fat measurements were taken. It could be the case that reduction in abdominal fat – a big ri...
