When I saw the baked beans and toast in the pic those rural police callously posted to their social media feed, I was so severely triggered that I could actually feel the zonulin wrenching open my intestinal tight junctions.

Goodness, that’s a bit disconcerting, a whole screen of blue shirted Mark Sissons So early in the mornings, reinforcement in a visual way.

– I’m trying to imprint myself on you, Annette.

  1. No magic bullet? Ever read John Teller or Dr Terry Wahls, who beat Parkinsons and MS. Or the countless people who beat Alzheimers too through diet or coconut oil? Big Pharma doesnt want cures, they will lose money if you cure diseases. Im shocked Sisson doesnt know this.

    1. I don’t think he’d call lifestyle changes a “magic bullet.” What the public wants is to pop a pill like a magic bullet, not make changes to their lifestyle. I’d bet Mark does know about Dr. Wahls and John Teller.

    2. Ofcourse Sisson knows this, you are just misunderstanding the definition of a magic bullet. “Magic bullet” means a quick and easy fix like taking a pill; lifestyle change involves work, effort and time which is exactly the opposite.

  2. Love the podcast with Mark and Joe Mercola…so interesting since I have followed both of them for years. Thanks for making my walks a little more interesting!

  3. “A paleo diet beats a typical “healthy” diet” Great but what are the macros? Also, nice to see you hosting Dr Mercola; about time… And remember, do go running commando under your running tights (-:

    *it was awaiting moderation and pouf disappeared..

  5. I wonder if the article about happiness would carry over to the states. Lack of quality maternity leave, social support, etc. might make that time much more stressful.

  6. Penile frostbite? If you are circumcised yes because that 1) removes a protective sheath (actually a concentric muscle) which also 2) significantly reduces warming blood flow to the area and 3) delays noticing of symptoms because removal of the so-called foreskin dries and reduces glans sensitivity delaying detection of frostbite and conditions of frostbite. Take your boy home whole.

      1. I think your statement could use a “Confucius say,” in front of it. Like, “Confucius say, ‘man who run behind car, get exhausted.'”

  7. Old news, bring th edead as cyborg (or as a stored personality), as any reader of F. Pohl and Arthur C. Clarke knows 🙂

    1. Welp, the humidity of saunas is usually around the 20% range and unless you’re talking about late fall on into early spring, then no. Then again, saunas are around 70 degrees so there’s that…of course, that’s 70 celsius, so….

  8. Poor sleep promotes negative thinking, aka “tired people feel like crap”: a ground-breaking report from the No Shit, Sherlock Institute of Medical Research.

  9. On “Carbon Footprint Per Gram of Protein,” check out the book “Defending Beef.” Well raised cattle likely has a significant smaller, if not negative, carbon footprint.
