THE TELEGRAPH reports the entirely obvious, that a good diet is better than statins for dealing with heart disease –
A Mediterranean diet could be better than statins at reducing the risk of an early death for millions of Britons, research suggests.
Leading heart experts said patients should be prescribed the diet – rich in fruit, vegetables, fish, nuts, whole grains and olive oil – before being put on drugs.
In the first major study to look at the impact of the Med diet on survival of heart patients, experts found it cut the chances of early death by 37 per cent.
Previous research has found just taking statins cuts mortality by 18 per cent.
ATW has been here before (here, here and also here). Most ailments, even serious ones, can be treated best and most safely with a good diet, fresh air and exercise. This is so clearly obvious that even I’m surprised at how long it takes eggheads to catch up.
London cardiologist Dr Aseem Malhotra said: “The results of this robust observational study are quite extraordinary.”
“The Mediterranean diet is more powerful than any drug at reducing death rates in patients with cardiovascular disease,” he said.
And it’s so very tasty too! I’d suggest cutting back on the bread and pasta a touch. Too many carbs ought to be avoided almost as much as drugs. Other than that, fill your boots.
HELP me out here please. First, a useful little video on the increasingly dangerous idea of “being offended”, featuring Hitchens C and P, Stephen Fry, Penn Jillette and Richard Dawkins –
I agree of course with the talking heads. So many people, many of them green-haired lesbos by the look of it, are so offended by so many things, on both sides of the Pond, that it’s become a politically powerful tool. But I’m missing something: I don’t understand the idea of “being offended”.
I know what it is to be hot or cold, to be in love, to be happy, sad, angry, frustrated or calm, but I’ve genuinely never grasped the idea of being offended. Anyone can say what they like about me and what I hold dear. So what? They’re just the thoughts and words of other people. “I’m offended by that” isn’t a phrase I understand. I don’t know what it’s supposed to feel like. Am I missing some offence gene? I really don’t think that “taking offence” is a real thing. I can’t conceive of it beyond being a tactical response to someone with unapproved opinions. It sounds like a device to shut up other people, that’s all.
HEY, it’s progress of sorts. Libs, Leftists and commies finally agree that this is perfectly acceptable beachwear, and that “the state has no right to dictate to women what they can wear on a beach”. Right liberals?
Hillary is panicking, she’s already breaking out the race card. Running commercials of a Klu Klux Klan leader endorsing Trump. Next commercial will say he’s going to kill or starve grandma.
In the meantime the 15,000 e-mails more that she swore were turned over but weren’t until the FBI found them are starting to work their way out. They are matching these up with her State Dept Schedules. The matching of her appointments to those that Donated to the Clinton Foundation, and Bill’s speaking engagements show that the majority of people that Hillary Clinton met with as Secretary of State or had an overriding vote of approval on business before the State Department gave 100s of Millions to the Foundation. 85 out of 150 Bribed her for access.
On a secondary note the State Dept. just put out a statement that they are going to defy a court order and not release the rest of her schedules until AFTER the Election.
I’ve done a few media interviews in the past few days on the topic of the Burkini ban in parts of France. Time moves swiftly and that ban on burkinis has now been banned by the French Supreme Court and so the death cult gets to parade in full view of locations such as the Promenade des Anglais in Nice – site of the slaughter of so many innocent French citizens and tourists at the hands of a “soldier of Allah”.
From conversations I have had with French people, the thing that I am clear on is that they are overwhelmingly in favour of clamping down on Islam. This decision by the French court flies against the will of the French people, although it gives Islam what it wants. As was said a month ago in the aftermath of the slaughter beside the beach in Nice..
“Two years before Charlie Hebdo, 74 per cent of French people said they thought Islam was intolerant and incompatible with the French state. So why isn’t the Muslim “community” we keep hearing about doing more to stop it happening?’
The answer is because it has no intention of being tolerant, of accepting the requirement to INTEGRATE, to accept what living in a secular French State means!
I was on LBC this morning debating this issue with the chairman of the UK National Secular Society, Terry Sanderson. Terry was delighted that this ban on the Burkini was lifted so allowing muslim women to do exactly what they please. Terry might do better to look at what has happened to Secularism in Muslim countries.
We face a clash of culture – one side seems to be winning.
Trump raised the balloon of Amnesty. No matter how you want to color it that’s what he did.
Different pundits are spinning it different ways, but he plucked the rabid string that started his campaign and now he’s softening it’s tone. Trumps legitimate step into the ring was the playing on the outrage that is the flooding of our nation with illegals.
The Keystone of his platform is the WALL. He also pledged to deport all illegals. Now that was never going to happen.
He is going to put out a plan on paper in the next two weeks, why he’s going to drag this out two weeks is beyond me, but that’s what he said. The question is will he be able to sell it?
If he doesn’t get people to believe he is still going to build a wall he’s done. The wall is the issue. Trumps only real selling point is the politicians of both sides have proven they will not stop the flood of illegals. The eggs in the basket is the people’s belief he’s crazy enough to actually build a Wall.
I know what you’re thinking; what was good in Brazil in 1976? Well, there was a young Zico of course. But there was also this. World Music isn’t my bag. If a pair of upturned coconuts are being used in lieu of drums then I might move on, but we shouldn’t be leary of something just because it was written in Foreign. I have no idea who José Mauro was or is, but this folky thing rolls along with a nice groove, in my opinion.
As always, feel free to share your favourite sounds –
“Three quarters of children born in some parts of UK last year were to foreign-born mothers, according to the latest figures from the Office for National Statistics”
75%. Think about what that means for for the future in those parts of the UK.
I have written a chapter about this in my forthcoming book but it all plays to the same point – namely that Britain is being changed irrevocably by unprecedented but politically driven immigration and the resulting demographic change will change Britain forever. Our green and pleasant lands will remain but those who occupy them will not be recognisably British. For centuries our Island race has rebuffed invasion but since 1995 it has become overwhelming, unstoppable and catastrophic for the future.
You do not defeat terrorism by rewarding terrorists, regardless of how many bleeding heart liberals argue otherwise. Want to know where that flawed approach leads to? Read UNIONISM DECAYED 1997-2007 - It's my first book and it explains what happens when you seeek to appease terrorists and call it peace. It's available right now for ATW readers so make sure you get your copy by emailing the editor! This is the book that dissents from the herd mentality that doing wrong can lead to being right. It doesn't and this book spells out WHY.
