    Olive oil? Healthy or not?!

    It’s important to point out there was NO LOW FAT GROUP, PERIOD! Unless you consider 39% of calories from fat a low fat diet. As for whole olives, absolutely of course

    Ultimately yes I believe humanity will pull through and hopefully grow as a result. It’s an interesting ploy I think. Humanity learns who and what it really is. Perhaps there is a meaning after all. Certainly, at least, that we are all one and these idiotic divisions need to be transcended.

    I don’t buy it. We humans are self centered creatures and don’t respond well to rational thinking as you so well state. It’s only when the floodgates open do we get serious and it will be too late. In fact it’s probably already too late.
  4. Latest from CDC seems to be pretty square with my above link. NEWSCORONAVIRUS CDC estimates COVID-19 fatality rate, including asymptomatic cases Here's the current CDC estimate of the COVID-19 fatality rate, taking into account asymptomatic infections. By: Jon EricksonPosted at 4:51 PM, Oct 20, 2020 and last updated 11:51 PM, Oct 20, 2020 Current estimates from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) involve what is known as the infection fatality ratio (IFR) of COVID-19 in the United States. The IFR is the number of people who die “of the disease among all infected individuals (symptomatic and asymptomatic),” according to the CDC. An asymptomatic case is someone who is infected who “does not exhibit symptoms during the course of infection,” according to the CDC. The CDC notes that these estimates are “not predictions or estimates of the expected impact of COVID-19.” Instead, what is presented is listed as the “Current Best Estimate,” which will be updated as more is learned. The IFR estimate is broken down by ages, and does not include people 80 or older: Age IFR Estimate 0-19 Years 1 in 33,333 20-49 Years 1 in 5,000 50-69 Years 1 in 200 70+ 1 in 18 *80+ not included Here are those estimates, stated as the percentage of all those infected (symptomatic and asymptomatic) who are surviving: 0-19 Years 99.997% 20-49 Years 99.98% 50-69 Years 99.5% 70+ 94.6% *80+ not included Data Source: CDC As for individuals 80 and older not included in the estimates, the CDC website reads: "The estimates for persons ≥70 years old presented here do not include persons ≥80 years old as IFR estimates from Hauser et al., assumed that 100% of infections among persons ≥80 years old were reported." Aggregate case numbers and fatalities for individuals 80 and older in the U.S. were not immediately available on the CDC website.
  5. Lentils are quite favorable for getting protein and minimizing methionine. Personally I wouldn’t obsess too much with protein totals as Getting most of it from plant foods like Legumes especially lentils. Also decreasing the whole grains which tend to be higher in methionine

    Seriously! More accumulation of knowledge perhaps, but my guess is we are innately much dumber. Also the big challenge for humanity is to learn how not to be a species that has evolved into a cancer that threatens the ecosystem. That’s a tall order, but one that needs to be met before we start growing the cancer by leaps and bounds with immortality!
  7. https://www.who.int/bulletin/online_first/BLT.20.265892.pdf another study on IFR. This one shows a IFR of 0.31% all ages under 70. 1.4% IFR for 65 year olds and increasing from there.
  8. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC7276137/ https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC7377740/ beginning to think we need a serious thread on this stuff. It may seriously be a key anti aging substance that diminishes with aging, but that can be increased with diet but it’s a bit complicated.
  9. https://jamanetwork.com/journals/jama/fullarticle/2771761 Suggests the death count is significantly higher than reported
  10. We know obesity raises risk in men by about 2.5 and Evidence points to low vitamin d doubling risk and low zinc levels also doubling risk. If we did some decent clinical trials with vitamin d and zinc we might see something quite significant based on some interesting associations. These don’t happen because there’s no money behind it
  11. https://medium.com/@joeljean/im-living-in-a-carbon-bubble-literally-b7c391e8ab6 I am starting this thread with the above link. I will follow up soon with my own direct experience using an AQI air monitor in my home.
  12. https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S2095254618301005#fig0006 upper respiratory infections association with exercise. Just like most everything it’s a j curve. Excessive exercise being a major risk factor. 45-60 minutes of moderate to vigorous exercise being the most Effective in reducing risks. May be relevant wrt COVID-19 I’d be very surprised if it was not. this would be consistent with Corybroos post above. Intense or vigorous is cool if not excessive
