Butter, Cream, and Heart Disease

For decades we’ve been told to steer clear of butter and cream if we want to stay healthy.

Now, however, a group of doctors has claimed that avoiding the saturated fats in these products does nothing to reduce heart disease…

Instead, they said, people can best avoid heart disease by eating ‘real’ home-cooked food, taking a brisk 22-minute walk every day and avoiding stress.

A Christian Doctor’s Perspective on Vaccines

I am still researching vaccines and don’t have a firm, dogmatic position on them.  A lot of the debate seems to rely on what authorities one trusts.  My own observations are that the unvaccinated children I know seem to be healthier than the vaccinated ones, but that is purely anecdotal and not a large sample size.  Here is an argument for vaccines from a Christian doctor:

Many different objections are made against using vaccines. One argument is that it is harmful to expose infants and little children to so many antigens at one time when they are vaccinated. However, as soon as babies leave the sterile environment of the womb and enter the birth canal, they are immediately and constantly exposed to antigens. Their intestines, essentially free from bacteria in utero, are in a very short time colonized by bacteria. Subsequently, their immune systems are continually bombarded by antigens. In contrast, a child that receives every recommended vaccine would be given around 130 antigens with the entire series. Vaccines do not overload the immune system.2

The War on Carbon

Here’s where it gets truly hilarious. While scientifically illiterate Leftists have declared war on carbon (yes, the element carbon) in the form of “carbon taxes” and the “war on carbon,” they apparently have no idea whatsoever that they are all made of carbon.

Killers Stalk Victims On Social Media Before Murdering Them

The majority of killers stalk their victims on social media before murdering them, a study of more than 350 homicides suggests.

The results of a six-month study claim there is a strong correlation between some key stalking behaviours and homicides.

107 cancer papers retracted due to peer review fraud

The journal Tumor Biology is retracting 107 research papers after discovering that the authors faked the peer review process. This isn’t the journal’s first rodeo. Late last year, 58 papers were retracted from seven different journals— 25 came from Tumor Biology for the same reason.

Cannabis and Heart Health

Smoking cannabis dramatically increases a person’s risk of suffering a heart attack, according to a major new study.

Researchers in the United States found that, over a five-year period, regular users in their early 30s were 4.6 times more likely to have a cardiac-related illness than those who did not smoke the drug. ..
