Posted in: Shionogi says COVID treatment did not meet endpoint in late-stage trial See in context

A problem with Covid drug trials carried out later in the pandemic (e.g. this one and IVERMILCO study) is that they were done at a time when the virus was much milder.

In great part thanks to vaccination

That's right, the vaccines promoted the appearance of variants.

However, if the Ukrainians manpower and moral problems are as bad as some reports suggest, we could see a collapse.

Yes, the collapse has started.

The west will never allow Ukraine to surrender.

How would the west stop Ukraine surrendering if they actually wanted to?

The same way they got Zelensky to back out of the Minsk 2 agreement.

Posted in: Japan saw over 16,000 deaths from COVID-19 in May-Nov 2023 See in context

The problem with many government surveys and media reports is that they often deliberately confuse deaths from Covid infection with deaths from vaccine side effects.

They also deliberately confuse deaths from Covid infection with deaths with Covid infection.

The bridge of their noses are too small, as my Japanese relative once told me.

Posted in: Midlife health is about more than a waist measurement. Here’s why See in context

it has been demonstrated that an excess of protein of animal origin have a negative effect on arteriosclerosis, and that is even without taking into account the already demonstrated elevated risk because of cholesterol

https://www.nature.com/articles/s42255-024-00984-2

From that paper:

"By designing specific diets modified in protein and leucine content representative of the intake in the general population [i.e. not carnivore diet], we confirm this threshold effect in mouse models and find ingestion of protein in excess of ∼22% of dietary energy requirements drives atherosclerosis in male mice."

And much of the main stream narrative about cholesterol has recently been shown to be false.

It's almost exclusively non scientists who talk about scientific consensus!

I'm still waiting to see hard data and evidence that the carnivore diet isn't ultimately unhealthy through various nutrient deficiencies.

Plenty of examples of healthy people following a carnivore diet for many years.

Posted in: Hamas reviewing Israeli proposal for cease-fire in Gaza, as a planned Rafah offensive looms See in context

We should appreciate and congratulate HAMAS for protecting the adult males from Israel offence... Look at the data.... 60% deaths are children.. and nearly 20% are women..... and a few males.. and most of them are old people...

About 50% of Gazans are children.

One reason why there are few adult men might be due to the years of IDF regularly "mowing the lawn".

Hamas sparked the war by attacking southern Israel on Oct. 7, with militants killing around 1,200 people

1200 were killed that day. About a third were military. Of the remaining civilians, the majority were killed by the IDF, not Hamas.

And this conflict did not start on Oct 7.

I already provided evidence from a study (survey) carried out at Harvard on thousands of people following the carnivore diet, they found that out of those who had autoimmune issues, 89% reported an improvement (36% resolved); out of those who had diabetes/insulin resistance, 98% reported an improvement (74% resolved); obesity/overweight: 93%; hypertension: 93% ...

https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/34934897/

Nice!

I'd bet it's much better (and safer) than what Ozempic can do.

These drugs have way too many severe side effects. Might as well ingest norovirus. Hmmm, maybe someone should market such a product and call in Norovir...

Norovir sounds good, but it needs a Z, like most drugs. How about Norozovir?

What scientific evidence? You certainly haven't provided any. 

Pretending not being able to see the references provided only makes it more clear you have nothing to refute their conclusions, there is no problem in copy pasting them again, they still prove the extra risks that your recommendations have for people.

Your references do not appear to be about the carnivore diet.

I had a quick look at your 2 papers, and I have to agree with him. How are they related to the carnivore diet?

The articles clearly mention your recommendations as example of diets that produce the problem

If it's so clear, why don't you quote the relevant part, or at least explain how they are related to his diet. Anyone can link to random papers and then ask others to refute their conclusions.

Climate changes, always has and always did. Humans have little, if any, impact on it.

This anonymous internet poster clearly has more credibility than the consensus of scientists who study the climate as their career.

No, never should the people of Japan become a vassal state.

I suggest this whole US Japan partnership be clearly defined.

Japan should no longer be a US forward base.

The J tax payer at the whim of US Asia–Pacific regional foreign policies.

Exactly, Japan should instead try to repair its relation with Russia.
