Gym Bunnies Are Wasting Their Time, Study Suggests|
This has been known for awhile now, you have to keep in mind working out will cause you to 'work up an appetite' and adjust accordingly. Exercising for weight loss is extremely inefficient, you lose weight by eating less. - Chris
New Study Says Happiness and Unhappiness Have No Direct Effect On Mortality|
|This new study published earlier this month by The Lancet completely upends conventional wisdom (and previous studies) which say being stressed will give you an early death, yet it's hasn't sent the shock-waves through the media I think it deserves, personally despite being a newshound I didn't even hear about it. |

Despite 1 In 5 Gay Men Having HIV, FDA Overturns 30-Yr Ban On Blood Donations|
|The U.S. government yesterday overturned a 30-year ban on gay men donating blood, the caveat being they must refrain from having sexual contact with other men for at least 12 months prior to any donation. |

Meat Is Linked to Higher Cancer Risk, W.H.O. Report Finds|
A panel of busy-body bureaucrats proclaim it to be, therefor it is so. This proclamation by a panel of 22 bureaucrats, 7 of whom disagreed or abstained from voting, involves no new science of any kind and is merely an expression of opinion without any scientific backing.
"Eating meat may, maybe, might, who knows, cause cancer."
All these studies show are loose associations, no actual causation is proven, therefor it's practically meaningless. People who eat red meat tend to have "riskier" diets and lifestyle habits in general, they definitively have not pinpointed their meat consumption as the cause of their cancers, yet they give the false impression they have.
What's remarkable is how many people are actually falling for this bull and acting like this report holds any weight, seven members of their own bullsh*t panel wouldn't even sign on to it, yet I see tons of alternative media sites eating it up with a spoon. - Chris, InfoLib

Whooping Cough Vaccination Fail|
|For all of the “herd immunity” evangelists who believe that everyone should be shamed into or forced to become revenue streams for the medical-pharmaceutical-government-criminal complex. To quote the article:|
The Reno County Health Department tells us a majority of the total cases have been vaccinated. Same thing is going on in Wichita County, Texas. And the same thing in ... (more)
