    People who eat very little but seem healthy?

    Usually the people I met who ate very little had obvious signs of hypothyroidism and poor health. But there is also a category of people who eat excessively little but seem very healthy. I have a friend in her 20s who needs to eat 1000 to 1500 calories a day, mostly from very low nutrient...

    Need advice: How many grams of fat is safe in a day (in relation to other macros)?

    Eating vegetables does nothing to protect against heart disease

    The bad news for vegans keep piling on. Yesterday, I posted about meat-eating extending lifespan, unlike eating vegetables. In corroboration of the latter, the study below now claims that eating vegetables does nothing good for the heart. Now, I don't endorse completely shunning vegetables...

    Another study challenging the vegan dogma relentlessly promoted by mainstream media under the aegis of World Economic Forum (WEF) members and other similarly microcephalic goons. As the study says, other studies that found benefits in eating vegan diets have failed to account for the so-called...
