  1. Almost guarantee it’s an association. 18 grams of chocolate a week, seriously
  2. ] Attkisson has received criticism for publishing stories suggesting a possible link between vaccines and autism,[10][11][12] a claim that has been rejected by the scientific community.[13] well Ron I’m not impressed with your source. She’s a long time anti vaccer. The above is from Wikipedia. OTOH, I AM RECEPTIVE TO BEING WARY OF WHAT SCIENCE TELLS US TO DO!! Read the story below. For years science has recommended aspirin for certain groups of people. Now they have reversed that recommendation. It’s just the REALITY OF HOW SCIENCE WORKS. just like the resistance of scientific reductionist materialism that has been wrong about the nature of reality. It takes time, sometimes decades. Science is full of holes and that’s just the way it is. So wrt these vaccines I gambled and got two moderna shots. I think it was a good choice but who knows. https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/health/2021/10/12/baby-aspirin-no-longer-recommended-prevent-first-heart-attack/6103264001/
  3. https://vtdigger.org/2021/10/08/vermont-reports-283-new-covid-cases-and-4-deaths-updates-breakthrough-and-outbreak-stats/ currently it’s about 2.5 times the death rate for unvaccinated when you adjust for odds ratio. Also consider virtually all 80+ persons are vaccinated and these are where the majority of deaths occur. Thus simply testing positive does not mean the vaccine was not working they had co morbidities and also happened to have the virus. In any case it a case of: “LIES, DAMNED LIES AND STATITSICS”

    Another reason to avoid alcohol

    https://www.ahajournals.org/doi/full/10.1161/CIRCULATIONAHA.117.030387 This analysis indicates that overal cardiovascular mortality is significantly reduced with moderate wine consumption. That said it is likely that alcohol in general raises a fib risk. Like most things in life there are benefits and risks.

    David Sinclair -- using botox?

    Hypsters exist in all forms. It’s human nature. Once money and ego entwine it becomes the standard. Religion is a good example. Buddhism pushers for example often hype the benefits. It’s their livelihood after all. Yes there is some truth there, but the end of suffering, bliss, nirvana give me a break! Same with the anti agers. I mean this guy Sinclair literally talks about age reversal. Not gonna happen by taking his NMN and resveratrol. Sorry David!
  6. The vaccine mandates have a very loooooooooong history here in the USA! thttps://thehill.com/changing-america/well-being/prevention-cures/573043-why-george-washington-mandated-vaccines “George Washington believed one’s freedom does not mean others should suffer as a consequence.”

    How much salt?

    Yes it’s certainly a genetic variability issue. Michaels key word above is MIGHT!
  8. I thought he made a reasoned case. It’s certainly not an easy call as I pondered at least a year ago on this same most popular ever thread! And below is a MUCH DIFFERENT PERSPECTIVE!

    Exercise optimization

    https://doi.org/10.1016/j.mayocp.2021.05.028 This study indicates a u shaped curve. Looks like 45 minutes of brisk waking or biking etc will do the trick, more may not help and in fact MAY be a negative. I do recall many years ago Dr. Andrew Weil quote on exercise and his advice was the equivalent of a brisk 45 minute walk a day. Kenneth Cooper said no more than 2 miles of jogging per day.

    Eating Natto for Bone, Artery & Brain Health

    It’s seems the vast majority bite the dust sooner or later.
  11. I tend to agree Khurram. Science is like a club and the members tend to think in scientism ways. Almost like a religion. The whole spooky quantum thing and the overwhelming evidence for paranormal experiences like NDEs and OBE’s is quite compelling and challenges the scientific reductionist materialist position on the mind/brain/consciousness phenomenon. Thankfully there are scientists out there who are quite respectable who are investigating these things and willing to take the heat and think outside the scientism box. However I do have a problem with some of your sources and on that I’m with Saul!

    Healthiest Greens?

    Also consider nitric oxide, disappointingly underdiscussed on this forum, green leafy vegetable like kale, collards, turnip greens, beet greens raise levels significantly https://extension.oregonstate.edu/sites/default/files/documents/8836/asay-no-disease-handout.pdf
  14. https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/covid-how-will-it-end/2021/09/04/44bdd69a-fed7-11eb-a664-4f6de3e17ff0_story.html Is “IT” going to end very soon or no??? So sorry the link won’t work unless your a subscriber. Bottom line some epidemiologists claim like all pandemics this one is coming to an end due to the numbers of cases and vaccines. By mid October one influential epidemiologist claims. Others claim that the politics on both sides is unfortunate. The anti vaccers and the fear mongerers.
