前言

西方醫學教育中營養課程只有區區幾小時,醫療人員往往不知道光是正確食物就能預防、甚至逆轉疾病(心血管疾病、糖尿病等),完全不需使用藥物。
不吃「含糖食品」(甜點、珍奶、罐裝果汁、養樂多、汽水、巧克力、雞排...)是邁向健康的第一招!
「植物性飲食」比較健康。建議少吃肉、水產、奶類,除了不健康外,很多都有化學殘留
醫療及藥物往往只短期控制表象(血糖、血壓、症狀等指標),而非根除疾病。
科學研究及官方指引(營養指引、臨床指引、用藥指引...)受利益團體(如糖業、速食業、製藥業、畜牧業...)長期介入,不值得信賴
保命第二招,出門時請戴上N95口罩。

一天一杯,癌症風險就增加...



Alcohol and Cigarette Use From Ages 23 to 55: Links With Health and Well-Being in the Long-Term National Child Development Study: Journal of Studies on Alcohol and Drugs: Vol 78, No 3

Conclusions:

British adults who consistently drank within new lower risk guidelines and abstained from smoking from young adulthood to midlife reported the best overall health and well-being across numerous indicators. However, apparent observed health benefits of stable low-dose alcohol use (vs. abstention) are weakened by the fact that by age 55 almost all alcohol “abstainers” in the National Child Development Study sample were former drinkers, and that respondents who followed infrequent drinking/abstention paths were the mostly likely to report poor health, psychological distress, and low educational qualifications in early adulthood.


Alcohol Consumption and Mortality From Coronary Heart Disease: An Updated Meta-Analysis of Cohort Studies: Journal of Studies on Alcohol and Drugs: Vol 78, No 3

Conclusions:

Pooled analysis of all identified studies suggested an association between alcohol use and reduced CHD risk. However, this association was not observed in studies of those age 55 years or younger at baseline, in higher quality studies, or in studies that controlled for heart health. The appearance of cardio-protection among older people may reflect systematic selection biases that accumulate over the life course.

簡單說:就算每天一杯,也會增加癌症風險。

自製花花餌(Crappie jig)


最近迷上 DIY,這是第一個比較滿意的「作品」。

有釣者在鉤身纏上鉛線,先增加重量。當然,有許多變化,自由發揮創意。

此餌可用來釣crappie,也可以釣walleye及其他魚。本週二首次測試,一共上了 5 種魚(peche, sunfish, bass, pike, crappie)。信心大增!

西方醫學對於針灸療效標準(判定)的大小眼



Cries the acupuncturist, “Medicine is biased against us, and there’s a double standard!” – Science-Based Medicine

值得深思的文章。

這是我常說的,利益當前,當然要給你盡量難看。以前我不懂,跟著西方療效標準唱和,現在清楚了,知道就算有標準,最後研究結論的說法(用字)終究跳脫不了研究人員個人或團隊的價值判斷。換言之,西方醫學的眼光(研究人員)終究有意無意地打壓很「另類」的另類醫學。
