Donald says he thought he’d died minutes after ketamine, a popular club drug known as Special K, was infused into his vein at a Sydney hospital in March.

“I couldn’t see anything except pure white,” recalled the 63-year-old depression sufferer, who declined to be identified by his last name. “I thought, ‘oh well, I must have died.’”

Gary Taubes in NYTimes: 'What Really Makes Us Fat' posted 07/03/2012, 5:42 AM (New York Times)
[Category: Health]
A CALORIE is a calorie. This truism has been the foundation of nutritional wisdom and our beliefs about obesity since the 1960s.

What it means is that a calorie of protein will generate the same energy when metabolized in a living organism as a calorie of fat or carbohydrate. When talking about obesity or why we get fat, evoking the phrase “a calorie is a calorie” is almost invariably used to imply that what we eat is relatively unimportant. We get fat because we take in more cal

Spanking Linked to Mental Illness, Says Study posted 07/03/2012, 5:42 AM (Yahoo News)

Although the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) strongly discourages spanking, at least half of parents admit to physically punishing their children. Some research suggests that as many as 70-90 percent of mothers have resorted to spanking at one time or another. A new study published in the journal Pediatrics may cause parents to think more carefully before laying a hand on their little ones.

I can't recommend Gary Taubes' book highly enough. I've been on the paleo diet for perhaps two months now and I'm leaner than ever. Trying to control your weight through portion control is a fool's game. The weight just melts off you when you're not choking down grains.

I must say I find it hilarious eating basically the opposite of what the government recommends is actually the healthiest thing you can do.

The state says eat a high carb, low fat diet, and as Taubes shows that horrible advice created the obesity epidemic. In reality, you should be eating a high fat, low carb diet. It's hilarious how all the "help" the state gives us always has the opposite effect.

This is pure junk science, here is the key line:

"Scientists added that people who eat a diet high in red meat were also likely to be generally unhealthier because they were more likely to smoke, be overweight and not exercise."

All this means is the people who are generally unhealthier also eat red meat, it doesn't mean the red meat is the cause of their unhealthiness, correlation is not causation. They assume that simply because red meat contains saturated fat, it's bad for you, see Gary Taubes' work to counter that argument. Additionally, it says the study was accompanied by an editoral by Dr Dean Ornish (See Gary Taubes debate him here) saying eating less red meat "could also help tackle climate change."
