More than 10 cyanide deaths with the same beneficiary and no police to connect the dots until now? It would seem she's not the only one with dementia

odd way to write it that the LDP are behind instead of stating Koike is out in front. Can the press not say it?

Posted in: Cholesterol-lowering vaccine seems to work in mice: study See in context

Yeah, just stop eating meat since meat contains cholesterol. Done and done. Also meat has the same spike response as table sugar in the blood, so cut your diabetes as well while we're at it. All without paying off the Pharma industry.

Sciency video on Arteries: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zTuK6QKBvcc Includes a Japanese study at the end. Check out https://www.nutritionfacts.org if you haven't and learn to live longer thanks to the hard work of worldwide scientists including Japan.

While Japanese are thin I was surprised to learn in another vid of the high diabetes rate as more people adopt the SAD (Standard American Diet)

Posted in: What's your stance on the new law to criminalize the planning of serious crimes, which has provoked large protests by opponents who say it could lead to abuse of power and curtail freedom of expression? See in context

I oppose. That's not what this law is for, but to provide a blanket intrusion into privacy and the creation of a police state afraid of criticism and a free press. If it was really about "law enforcement" then all Japan has to do is actually enforce its laws.

Japan is right to stand up to Communist China. They should however start moving company production into other countries with democracies instead. Then they're not propping up Mulan's crew

I still have one on my key chain, many years later. Why would I be confused on its worth especially since it says 5 yen on it? Article a real head scratcher

Lawrence Kasdan wrote Empire Strikes Back so if it's just a tonal change and Howard can steer it, the movie itself might be good. 3/4 done doesn't allow a lot of time to change complete direction so this may be a plus

Tomato with rice and seasoning can be made to taste very fish like. It would be interesting to at least try it

Posted in: Japanese diners pick their 8 favorite types of sushi See in context

With tuna nearing extinction due to unrelenting unsustainable demand and no leadership anywhere to stop it, I read somewhere a while back that a master sushi chef found that tomatoes made a worthwhile replacement. It will be equally interesting what further innovations of change will occur as vegan sushi enters the mainstream by simple necessity. Tomato sushi is one of the few that has the umami flavouring versus other vegan sushi. It doesn't have tuna flavour but it apparently can be made to have similar look and texture just like sushi. And eggplant for unagi replacement!

Oh, here it is.

Posted in: Artificial intelligence and the coming health revolution See in context

Food and health are directly related. The more plants you eat the healthier you are. The more animals you eat the more unhealthy you are. The science cannot be refuted, but that doesn't stop the marketing who have a financial interest to say otherwise. A good example of this is how eggs are not allowed to be marketed in the USA as noted hilariously here: (NutritionFacts.org video titled "Who Says Eggs Aren't Healthy or Safe?" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RtGf2FuzKo4 ) Note each video on their site will show the references to the science articles.

Companies want people to depend on them for technology and solutions when people don't need companies at all when it comes to their health and nutrition

It will come down to who has access to the information like NutritionFacts.org, who just review the data from pubmed.gov and put it to more understandable English. I wonder what public information on health is available in Japanese to the local Japanese market? Most science publish in English but it would be important to know from more sources given the widespread public misunderstanding of how nutrition works

Japan has cool local chefs that make a nice splash about local ingredients with their craft. That will remain more important than any app

Posted in: Artificial intelligence and the coming health revolution See in context

But it takes extra work to be properly healthy without animal based products as well

Not in the slightest. Maybe that's what the marketing tells you, but certainly not according to verifiable science that shows with an immense body of evidence spanning decades, and not marketing, that you nor anyone requires animal based products in any way, should you wish to live a long and healthy life

Cheaper to eat a plant based diet. Would ruin all those multinational profiting dreams too

Posted in: Hibakusha present 3 mil signatures to protest against nuclear weapons at U.N. See in context

While it's nice to laud the efforts of Japanese bomb survivors it would have been better served against their own government, like the minds of Abe and his ilk who have made Japan into arms dealers! The UN protest is thus rather hampered by their own country's hypocrisy

Posted in: More than 15,000 people with dementia reported missing in 2016 See in context

For the latest science on Alzheimer's see http://www.nutritionfacts.org . It's just the peer reviewed science. They did the research and note that a plant-based diet reduces incidence. It didn't cure the disease, it was still there, but the number of cases in plant-based diet populations was substantially lower. Interesting that many of the studies were also from Japan and note Turmeric spice as a helpful aid. Combine with pepper as noted in another study, and it increases bio-availability of Turmeric and you have a protective effect. This is explained why India's spice mixes create lower incidence (again not elimination, just fewer cases).

Ironically Japan has had the solution all along, which is a traditional Okinawan diet with less than 1% meat. California's Adventist's have the lowest incidence as they are vegan. Both are considered the longest living populations in the world.

But the traditional Okinawan diet has all but disappeared as each new generation takes up a Western diet high in meat dairy and processed foods. As Japanese generations lose interest in local diets, they are eating more hamburgers cheese and dairy like those in the USA, and disease incidence has increased in lock step with those choices. Okinawa is trying to encourage youth to adopt the diet again but KFC's everywhere I wonder how long that will last

It's more actionable and realistic to demand personal change and help people live better, rather than rely on a do-nothing government that is more interested in reviving the mistakes of WWII

Posted in: Japan aims to cut suicide rate by 30% in 10 years See in context

A population that has mostly voted for a single party for decades run into the ground as an extension of corporations. Workplace hours limits are not enforced and too high even if they are. A police state law passed by ignoring the upper house. Reinstating toxic nuclear power on an earthquake prone island. Lying to keep a whale meat industry alive to inflict mercury on children.

If all of these things were reversed there would be a reason to hope for better things.

Posted in: U.N. rights rapporteur criticizes passage of ‘conspiracy bill’ See in context

To try to speed up passage of the law, the ruling bloc took the rare, contentious step of skipping a vote in an upper house committee and moving directly to a vote in the full upper house.

Pretty much sums up the whole mess

Democracy wasn't needed because it was in the way
